Northern Lights Strain
Northern Lights is one of the most iconic strains in cannabis history. This classic Indica-dominant cultivar has been a popular choice among marijuana growers and users for decades and is still a favorite today. Its compact structure, fast flowering time, and heavy yield make Northern Lights an excellent choice for commercial growers and hobbyists alike.
Northern Lights is a well-known strain among cannabis enthusiasts; however, its origin is somewhat unclear. Some growers believe this variety was bred by a grower nicknamed “the Indian” during the 1970s. This enigmatic grower is said to have sprouted a handful of pure Indica Afghani seeds, favoring the phenotypes labeled “No. 1” and “No. 5”.
Northern Lights offers a luscious fragrance that is sweet and spicy. This variety smells distinctly of pine and damp soil, with hints of honey and wildflower. Some plants may present more of the earthy pine aroma, and others may be sweeter and more floral.
Northern Lights is a powerful strain known to contain up to 21 percent THC. Like most Indicas, this variety offers a sedating stone that tends to lull users to sleep. Given its potent body-numbing effects, this cultivar may be an excellent choice for medical marijuana users.
This strain is hardy and vigorous, able to withstand most environmental stressors. As such, Northern Lights is a suitable cultivar for beginner growers and those in harsh climates. Its short stature also makes this strain a staple among indoor growers. This variety can complete the flowering cycle in as little as seven to eight weeks when adequate lighting and nutrients are provided.
