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.

Amazing, just got this strain again, from a different grower. Still the same price point and still similar numbers. So I can't say one is different from an another grower here. But here in Maryland, as far as Indica this is the most favorite local strain! I keep buying it for insomnia!


This strain has so much to offer, and it really gets me better euphoria and relaxation that many much higher THC strains, so I am convinced of the needed variety. And the price point for medical for this strain is amazing. It is like it grows so large that they have too much. I have not had the negative effects thankfully with this one :)


Can buy this high THC strain in Maryland Medical Dispensaries. great price point for medical users especially if purchased in larger quantities. It does not prevent seizures, but it is quite helpful for Bipolar Disorder and PTSD!!! And my friends it gets you high!!!


One of my favorite it's been a year since I had it .....


This is my fave indica. Yes, nostalgia and 90s NoCal cloud my views a bit, but 25+ years later, still one of the best. Vaping some right now, body mind melt, , super chill, then eat...sleep 👍 For anxiety, pain, nausea, all that ails ya 😴


such a smooth inhale, and leaves you happy.


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..
