About this Indica Strain

The infamous cannabis strain, Northern Lights, is a pure indica with a taste and scent that’s sweet and earthy with a hint of spicy pine. When ready to harvest, this strain has thick crystal-coated buds that sometimes reveal hues of purple.

Its lineage is unknown, but it’s believed to have originally been bred in Holland with the indica strain Afghani and sativa strain Thai. 

Northern Lights has an average THC level of 16%. However, some crops have been reaped baring a 26% THC level.

Northern Lights is an all-time favorite, its popularity never waning as it’s one of the purest indicas around (95/5) and produces an intense body high. When consumed, it numbs pains, relaxes muscles, and creates a mood of laziness – meaning it works best at night and has been reviewed to be a great remedy for insomnia. It lowers cerebral activity, creating a euphoric sense of mind. It has been known to also increase appetite.

Most common negative effects of this strain is dry mouth and eyes, with some reporting a bit of dizziness due to the intense effect it has on the body. 

Northern Lights has won in several Cannabis Cups along with other awards. 

This strain produces a high yield, has a low height, and only takes around 50 days to flower.
