Northern Lights is one of the three main strains that have revolutionised cannabis culture over the last three decades. Apart from Skunk #1 and Haze, no other strain has been as influential as Northern Lights. It was developed as an indoor variety at the end of the 70s based on Californian genetics.
To begin with, it was a cross between a stabilised Sativa and an Afghan hybrid. It arrived in Holland as a clone but couldn’t be used for stable seed production so they used Skunk nº1 and Original Haze to produce seeds and to provide mother plants.
Northern Lights has a lot of Afghan genes, a sweet taste and produces a comfortable and relaxing effect. It is a compact, very dense plant and such a rapid grower that several generous crops per year are easily achievable. Its resin-capped buds smell like a mixture of honey and musk with earthy Afghan undertones.
Low odour levels, easy to grow, great yields and exceptional resin production all combine to make Northern Lights a top choice Indica.
