Northern Lights, also known as “NL,” is an indica marijuana strain made by crossing Afghani with Thai. Northern Lights produces euphoric effects that settle in firmly throughout the body, relaxing muscles and easing the mind. Consumers say this strain has a pungently sweet and spicy flavor profile that is smooth on the exhale. Medical marijuana patients choose Northern Lights to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, stress, pain and insomnia. Growers say this strain features purple and crystal-coated buds and grows best indoors with a flowering time of 45-50 days.
Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. This strain has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Rumor has it that Northern Lights first sprouted near Seattle, Washington, but was propagated out of Holland after 1985 at what is now Sensi Seeds.
As it turns out, Northern Lights, the cannabis strain, has been around for ages. Not only was it popular in the early 90s, but it also dominated the industry. A testament to the greatness of the strain is in its bagging of the High Time Cannabis Cup, several times.
Today, Northern Lights No. 5 is an improvement to the original strain with regards to its potency. In some ways, it is aptly named because once the physical body high hits, each of the billions of cells in the body rejoices.
No one knows the exact lineage of Northern Lights No. 5. From what we could gather, it traces its root to an Afghani Indica. But there are also others who say it is a cross between Afghani and an unknown Thai Sativa. It is a plausible theory as that would explain the presence of Sativa genes in the plant.
After taking the cannabis world by storm in the 90s, several breeders kept on working on improving the strain. For instance, BC Seed Company has worked on their version for more than two decades. Through inbreeding with the best phenotypes, they have released their variant of NORTHERN LIGHTS (5-PACK)
