NORTHERN LIGHTS (AFGHANI X THAI)
Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. When it comes to strains that have made their mark on the cannabis plant genetics that are around today, there are few names that can be mentioned as often as Northern Lights. The exact makeup of the Northern Lights heritage is thought to have come out of west coast America, originally from eleven different seeds. Each of these varieties has been bred, inbred, and hybridized so much over the years that the exact genetics remain a mystery.
However, one thing that is certain is that Northern Lights has been the basis for many of the award-winning classics in the history of cannabis. According to the legend, Northern Lights was an indica plant exclusively from Afghanistan, although some of the original eleven plants were said to contain Thai genetics. Today, we bring you our feminized Northern Lights, which is still an indica-dominant hybrid, but carries a lot of sativa in its leaf structure.
Our Northern Lights will grow as high as 1.2 m tall indoors, but will stretch to over 2 meter tall outside. It will produce relatively wider internode spacing with long, thin leaves, showcasing its sativa background. The flowering stage is when its Afghan heritage comes to life, with dense, resin-covered nuggets forming all over the plant. However, it will produce a giant main cola. On average, this plant will yield 5–60 g per plant or about 500 g per square meter under a 600w light.
Grown outdoors, it can deliver as much as 100 g per plant, but will need the nice warm environment of southern Spain, California or North Africa. Placed in full sunlight and given enough food and water, Northern Lights will grow into a tree and produce excellent results. Flowering is complete after 7-8 weeks, although some growers report harvesting after just 7 weeks. During the flowering process, all buds are formed with a light, resin-covered surface, which starts to glow towards the end of growth.
Pungently sweet, spicy aromas radiate from the crystal-coated buds, which sometimes reveal themselves in hues of purple. Northern Lights’ psychoactive effects settle in firmly throughout the body, relaxing muscles and pacifying the mind in dreamy euphoria. Comfortable laziness allows patients to relieve pain and sleeplessness, while its mellow contentment roots out depression and stress.
