Northern Lights


Northern Lights Strain

Northern Lights is probably one of the most popular strains of all time, right up there with Jack Herer, White Widow, and OG Kush. Northern Lights is a pure Indica and there are many reasons for its popularity. It is a descendant of Afghani and Thai Landrace strains and is the father of many famous hybrids including Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Northern Lights has been around since the 70s, and possibly before but the era of prohibition makes it difficult to find this type of information. The strain was perfected in its Amsterdam home but has begun to make its way to America over the years (some are claiming for some reason that it began in Seattle and was imported to Holland, but this is backward). The only downside to this powerful strain is that its yields are not exceptionally high. In the average greenhouse setup, Northern Lights produces roughly 100 grams per plant.

This strain is the perfect choice for those that prefer quality and ease over quantity. THC levels for this strain are between 16-21%, and the effects are very powerful. There are many varieties of Northern Lights, the latest strain being Northern Lights 9. The effects of Northern Lights are usually described as calm, peaceful and relaxing. It will put first time users to bed very quickly, relaxing the muscles and putting a smile on their faces. It is the ideal strain to let go of all types of worries and stress. An exceptional strain if you can find a good quality variety in your dispensary.

Why do Patients Use Northern Lights?

Northern Lights is an enormously popular medical and recreational strain. Few other strains can match its pain relieving and insomnia beating capacities, as well as its ability to induce appetite. Little more can be expected from such a pure Indica. It can also be used to treat anxiety, stress, and depression. It can be found in most medical dispensaries and if your dispensary does not have at least one type of Northern Lights, it might be time to put in an application for its inclusion. It is arguably the best strain for insomnia available.
