I've used this for insomnia, and it's worked like a charm every time.
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.

This strain is my favorite! number one in my book! It’s hard for me to describe how it makes me feel, It gets my mind off of my pain!
A very mellow strain .
The high is AMAZING! – It hits you like a train with the heavy anxiolytic/numbing body stone from head to toes. It exacerbates your senses as well - thanks to its mild psychedelics properties. I drank cold water and I felt it go down through my throat and chest like a cold waterfall. Same if you spill it on your skin, but instead it feels like an iceberg. I experienced some closed-eyes visuals but nothing that intense to talk about it any further. Heavy limbs and serious cotton mouth case are the main downsides. In small dosage though, the sativa trait of Thai uplifts you and get you focused. What's standout the most is the euphoria. Bursts of laughter/giggles for no reason during 45min+! Despite the sedative effect, it isn't debilitating at all and your mind is clear and not confuse. Don't over do it because as many other strains side effects, it is gonna skyrocket your anxiety/paranoia level at worse. Aromas from the jar - 4 weeks of curing- radiate a powerful sour citrusy skunk smell who fills my entire room within seconds as well as the classic spicy/earthy NL perfume; The taste are much better – sweet spicy/earthy smoke with undertones of pine and citrus upon the exhale; Acquired from Seshcanna
8.5 out of 10. Hadn't had it in 2 decades, didn't disappoint. Classic indica. Piney and dense. Superb for anxiety relief, neuropathic issues, inflammation, insomnia. Not sure on appetite or PTSD, etc. A staple. Only reason it didn't score in the 9s is because of the many supernatural strains that do. At t25 it was potent enough to ease into relief.
Got this beauty from Greenhouse Wellness in Ellicott City MD. It's amazing definitely 5/5 would recommend
The punch of THC this strain packs is not to be underestimated. It lives up to its legendary reputation almost too well. It's clear headed indica buzz is balanced by a very euphoric and carefree stone. This strain can definitely be very heavy if you're smoking well grown buds and cause couchlock as well. The dabs I've tried were a beautiful gold with an amber tinge, and had a mind blowing terpene profile. They smell slightly of pine and musk, with apple overtones. They tasted even better than they smelled with intense berry, spice, and fuel flavors and hints of citrus and skunky earth . Northern lights can be powerful medicine as well as a smoke for recreational users alike. It's a great smoke for people with insomnia and lack of appetite and delivers that classic cannabis stone you really love.
Best strain I've smoked since White Widow!!! Cures all that ails you!!! Was electrocuted in the Army in 1999 and have sciatic nerve/muscle damage and was bedridden on methadone for it....rubbish WEED RULES?!🙌😂
Classic strain. It was nugged up when I was on it in 01. Very potent then for a young at time smoker. A must try in any experience smoke age. Basic exotic smell & very piney taste.
Pretty good strain . If you have trouble sleeping, eating (due to loss of appetite) relaxing,winding down after a long day,anxiety, stress,and a mountain of other benefits then this is the right strain for you.The taste is a good earthy flavor. It also has hints of orange ,berry ,and vanilla. It gives me a taste of dark rich coffee after I exhale the thick rich smoke .That's my own opinion. I have spoke with other smokers that say they also get a dark tea or coffee taste upon exhale of smoke . The buds are tight hard nuggets and can be large.Its color is light, and dark green with a ton of bright orange hairs that pop on the resin rich buds . Some buds will demonstrate a purple hue when the flowering time is extended. The strain can be full of stems and sticks when not cultivated properly or harvested way to early . If you plan to grow it then your in for a treat from a growers aspect . Most are big and full of buds . There is not much to do as far as work when your growing this strain . Its probably one of the easiest to grow and its a great choice even for beginners. It can be grown indoors and outdoors with the same amount of ease . Flowering time is 8 weeks but its not unheard of for growers to let them go for 11 to 12 weeks . I would recommend it .
