An iconic strain that has stood the test of time, Northern Lights is one of the most famous and potent indicas around. It is an old strain, believed to be a cross between Afghani and Thai landrace genetics, and was refined in Holland before finding its way back to North America. Northern Lights is known for its dreamy and euphoric effects, leaving its users in an incredibly relaxed and happy state. With its high THC content of up to 33%, this strain is best reserved for nighttime use.
Smoking Northern Lights will send its users into a deep and dreamy state. The indica genetics offer a heavy body high that will relax all the muscles in the body and ease the mind. Euphoria and happiness is common, and users may find themselves with an increased appetite. The effects are known to be quite sedative, so make sure you don’t overdo it! Northern Lights is also great for medical use, as it can help with chronic pain, insomnia, depression, headaches, stress, and loss of appetite.
Appearance, Aroma, and Smoke
Northern Lights buds are extremely frosty and white due to their abundance of trichomes. They can also feature hues of purple that complement the frosty green buds. The aroma is sweet and earthy, with hints of spicy pine. The smoke can be harsh on the throat if taking big hits, but its taste is sweet and pine-like.
