According to the legend, Northern Lights was originally created by using genetics from 11 different seeds, somewhere along the West Coast of the United States. The genetic background might be mystifying, but Zambeza Seeds strongly believes in Northern Lights, and crossed it with a top-performing Afghani. The result is Northern Lights XL, an indica-dominant champion that yields incredibly high, is easy-to-grow for beginners, and produces extra-heavy buds.
One of the best growing traits of Northern Lights is the exceptionally short flowering time of approximately 60 days. A quick turnover like this can be beneficial when fast results are desired. Indoor growers can expect plants to be 120-150cm tall, and yields of up to 600-750g/m². Outdoor growers with a sunny growing location can really see the XL part of this hybrid: Plants grow to massive sizes and can reach heights of 170-200cm, yielding up to 550-650g per plant.
The flavours of Northern Lights XL will be recognized by old school growers and smokers. Aromas are fresh, and a blend of sweet and citrus-like aromas. Taking a few hits of this strain will induce a sensation being stoned, relaxed, and happy at the same time. It’s pretty much the perfect combination when Indica effects are desired. THC levels were tested at 19%!
Northern Lights XL has the potential to satisfy a wide range of growers and smokers. Beginners will profit from the indica-dominant growing traits, experts can take advantage of the insane bud production, and stoners will get incredibly stoned! Let’s not forget about the old school growers among us. They might appreciate the fact that flavours are very close to what Northern Lights was like back in the 70’s.
