Northern Lights Strain


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.

For me, this strain seems to be a creeper. I haven’t seen anyone else mention this, though, there’s no question as time shifts I’m becoming more and more drawn into a deeper sense of relaxation. I’m usually strictly a sativa guy, except for late at night, though today I’ve been highly stressed and wanted to give this a whirl. At first I didn’t notice much, after 15 minutes, I am now in a total state of happy relaxation. I’m not ready to take a nap quite yet, but all the shat that was bothering me 20 minutes ago is gone. Maybe I’ll hit the hammock and check out cloud formations. Yeah, that’s what I’m up for. 😎🌱💨

Reminds me of the 90's and I'm an og. This was where I started smoking kind bud after years of shwaggy commercial bud. First grow was nl5 and silver haze and they were fire. The nl5 bud structure is solid and covered with orange hairs. Very recognizable bud. Great high and one of my all time favs.

Very good, classic strain! The effects were happy, calm, relaxing, hungry and some euphoria.

Top Shelf...well cared for and prepared..Super fresh, outstanding taste and high...some of the buds weighed over 5 grams, everything Russ puts out there is outstanding...very reliable and prices on the coast for sure... BIG DOG IN ORANGE

This strain fills my mind with creative thoughts. It is best taken at night as it relaxes the body and you can ease into sleep a bit easier. I have insomnia so it has helped. Strong smell though.

In my top 10 favorite. If you have the chance to get some you definitely need to. It's a special one of a kind and a must have if you can find it.

I have epilepsy, seizures almost every week. Once I started smoking this strain -northern lights- I’ve only been having 1 a month at that. And I’ve actually been able to go to sleep instead of staying away for over 60 hours at a time.

This by far one of my favorite strains taste, smell, quality of the high have always treated me right

I'm an Indica fan, and this is one of my favorites. Effects, flavors and aromas are all as advertised. I get some of this every time it's available.

Easily in the Top 5 all-time best strain ever created, it's an absolute classic. Northern Lights is also my personal favorite, the taste is amazing and it also makes me feel nostalgic. It was probably the first "Kind Bud" I was able to consistently get back in the late 90's when I was in college.
