KC Brains - Northern Light Special

Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

I don't have a lot to compare this grow to, I've always been a social smoker and never really knew what I was consuming.

Compared to the other two plants, the Northern Light Special took way more abuse (a 10 day stretch where I forgot to give her water). She took nutrients well and was generally a faster grower than the other two.
All in all I'm really happy with the result, despite a being a first time grower I got a nice product.

The harvest was unscheduled, pretty much all the fan leaves died out and the buds were starting to turn brown so I decided to chop early. I was worried the unscheduled harvest would kill the potency, but that was alleviated after making some infused coconut oil with 2 cups of trim and 2 cups of coconut oil. The blondies I made with half a cup of the oil was way too potent for me. Two small blondies left me with intense cotton mouth and overly paranoid. I'll try half a blondie next time.

The flowers were a little over dry after hanging and are still curing. After a week or so the hay smell started going away leaving a pine / citrus scent.

These are dead simple to use, which I appreciate. Since there were so many other variables and this is my first grow I can't say how much of an impact the nutes had.

Also simple to use, I had no problems with it.

Compared to the White Widow and Skunk #1 I would say Northern Light Special grew quite a bit faster. Even after accidentally breaking off 1 of 4 main colas she was almost twice the size of the other plants.

@OldCoolSativa, yeah I've never seen this much weed in one place before. I showed my bro the harvest and he said it looked like something Cheech would pull out of a backpack

Read your strain review haha. I rarely smoke. Like once or twice within 2 months and go through the same thing. I literally take 1 hit with my tolerance and get smashed with all this high thc stuff. Wifey loves it though! Keep growing man, I defiantly enjoy it and hope you keep growing. :facepunch:
