Northern Lights is perhaps one of the most popular strains you’ll find in the legal cannabis market. It’s a pure indica and is a favorite among the medical community that seek relief from pain, mood disorders, insomnia, and lack of appetite. It is reputed to relax both the mind and body, allowing the consumer to forget their problems while readying them for a great night’s sleep.
Indica strains are believed by many to help both medical and recreational consumers as an analgesic, meaning it may lessen pains or aches felt throughout the body when inhaled or ingested. While they also may tend to slow the mind’s racing thoughts, indica strains are considered by consumers to be less cerebral, so the high experienced might mellow you out instead of increasing focus or igniting creativity like sativa strains are reported to do. As far as Northern Lights, the same concept reigns true and it’s fans say that its best towards the end of the day when all important tasks have been completed and it’s time to de-stress.
Northern Lights has a THC level that fluctuates depending on the cultivation and curing techniques used, so be sure to check the label in order to determine the right amount for you. Some report that over-indulging in this strain has lead to slight vertigo, or even anxiousness. Dry mouth and eyes are unfortunately a common side-effect, so have something to drink and some eye drops nearby.
When you open up a package of Northern Lights you’ll be excited to see the colorful buds remind you of the aurora borealis themselves. A well-grown batch will have purple and sometimes blue hues among its green flowers. Its scent and flavor are reminiscent of walking through a pine forest, right before tumbling upon the magic of the Northern Lights.
