Northern Lights was developed as an indoor cannabis seed strain in the late 1970s near Seattle in Washington, although the genetics involved in the cross were known to have come from California the original home of a great many of the most famous cannabis seeds strains.

It was initially a stabilised cannabis sativa strain crossed with an Afghani indica hybrid. Northern Lights travelled to Holland as a clone where it was introduced to the commercial cannabis seed market in 1985 by The Seed Bank. Because it arrived as a clone it could not be inbred for stability and cannabis seed production, therefore Skunk No 1 and Original Haze were used to produce seeds off it so it could be used as a parent plant.

Northern Lights distinctly shows its Afghani indica genetic backgroundอพ it is a small plant that produces, big highly resinous flowers. Although it was initially developed for indoor growers excellent results have been produced outside.

Northern Lights has a sweet resinous taste and produces a physically comfortable but lazy feeling, known to some as โ€˜couch lockโ€™.

I harvested over a 2 week period. I took all the top buds and then let the bottom buds develop longer. This allowed me to get a full spectrum of different taste and affects at different point in the harvest.

This was only my 2nd grow and I would 100% recommend this strain for beginners. Also my first auto so no LST was done would try it on my next crop of autos. Had 2 different phenos and was really interesting to see the difference in the way they grew. Nice purple colours came out during the fade was really cool to see. 5 outta 5 on my scale and ill be growing this strain again.
