Northern Lights

Indica

THC: 16% - 21%

Few strains come with as much widespread renown as Northern Lights, inarguably one of the most popular strains of all time. An inbred descendant of original Afghani landrace strains, Northern Lights is a pure indica. THC levels can reach 16-21%, making this one of the most potent strains available on any market. A couple hits is all it takes for most patient's seeking this strain's powerful body effects, an upbeat mix of euphoria and physical relaxation. CBD levels are less clear, but they certainly aren't high enough to recommend this as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD. Even so, Northern Lights is a highly useful medical strain, effective at treating anxiety, pain, and insomnia, as well as lack of appetite. Cottonmouth is common, as are red eyes, while other negative effects are much more limited. This strain has a sweet, earthy flavor with hints of citrus. Northern Lights is most popular on the West Coast and in Colorado, but it's a favorite pretty much everywhere else marijuana can be found.

Northern lights is like a big giant hug. When I was younger, this was the strain you heard about all the time. This classic bud is great for many reasons. The flavor is a very classic weed flavor. The dank citrus flavor will stay with you. It’s super easy to grow, and will be perfect grow for new growers. The effects are what we all expect when we think of getting stoned. Hungry sleepy and relaxed. It’s a classic that has survived the ages because it’s a great strain. I’d never pass it up🤪


The following is transcribed from notes made after 3+ months use of this strain. Breeder - Sensi seeds. Linage - Afgani & Thai. (Indica dom 90/10). Strength - Strong variety approx 20 %. Medical/physical benefits - Excellent for IBS or upset stomach, gradual onset, no racy heart. Becomes increasingly strong for 30-40 minutes. Good physical relaxation, narcotic effect. Cerebral effects - Has a distinct psychedelic component (probably from the small percentage of Thai linage) that does not always compliment its physically relaxing traits. Can be a bit overwhelming initially and is not always conducive to immediate relaxation. Sleep - Very good aid to sleep once initial effects have settled down. Appetite - Increase in appetite can be severe and almost uncontrollable. Ideal for patients who need to stimulate appetite. Clarity - Can be fuzzy in a way that is similar to alcohol. Functionality - Very high ceiling but larger doses can cause mild confusion, forgetfulness and clumsiness. Difficult to concentrate on physical tasks, definitely best after a meal rather than when trying to prepare it! Overall - Classic benchmark strain that is a good 'all rounder' but there can be an interference to relaxation from the psychedelic component. Best suited to late evening use when there is nothing demanding to do.


Trying out some Northern Lights for the first time. Smoked a small nug in my glass bubbler and found that it tasted kind of spicey. Left my throat burning slightly in a black pepper sort of way. I can't say I'm hating the effect this strain is having on my throat, but it's sure different. Can't wait to make some canna oil with it because of the flavour. At about ten minutes in I'm feeling pretty mellow but my mind is still a bit foggy; yay Fibro! The cannabis has definitely eased my anxiety and relieved all tension in my body. I'm appreciating the relief from today's wide spread muscle tension pain. It's not a strain that I'd use recreationally but I'm adding Northern Lights to my must have medicinal cannabis strain list. Seems like a good strain for beginners to try.


Smoked this back in my college days. Great high then & only in nug form did the buds appear. Lovely flower on all levels..


By far my favorite Indica strain coming just ahead of Purple Kush. Great for pain and anxiety or just relaxing and remembering good times back in the 90's when I first tried this strain.


Fantastic smoke. Super relaxing couch-lock...cushions felt like rainbow fog. Slight psychedelic effects. Great evening time strain for enjoying slow music and nature sound.


Decent middle of the road weed. This is not purple, blue or high cbd. The taste is kushy and silver. I didn’t find it to be sleepy like everyone has suggested. This is good newbie weed. This strain is one of the most common so people go on and on about it, and thus it is at least a little overrated.


The bud is phenomenal and gives a special kind of high.


Had them delivered on New Year’s Eve and I ordered the super sour diesel and I must say it’s was the best sour I’ve had in years !! Very impressed!! It’s a must try 100%


One of my favorites to vape at night. A top choice Indica for me. I suffer from anxiety, depression and PTSD, works amazing for all:)
