Northern Lights weed, inarguably one of the most popular strains of all time. An inbred descendant of original Afghani landrace strains, Northern Lights is a pure indica. THC levels can reach 16-21%, making this one of the most potent strains available on any market. A couple hits is all it takes for most patient’s seeking this strain’s powerful body effects, an upbeat mix of euphoria and physical relaxation.
CBD levels are less clear, but they certainly aren’t high enough to recommend this as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD. Even so, Northern Lights weed is a highly useful medical strain, effective at treating anxiety, pain, and insomnia, as well as lack of appetite. Cottonmouth is common, as are red eyes, while other negative effects are much more limited. This strain has a sweet, earthy flavor with hints of citrus.
Known by many as a “two-hit and quit” strain, Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode. The desire to sit on the couch and listen to the call of munchies may be overwhelming to novice users even in lower doses.
Accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Some experienced users are reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well.
Benefits of Northern Lights weed
Like most of its indica-based ancestors and descendants, Northern Lights weed is highly recommended for evening use and insomnia. It is one of the purest indica strains around (95% indica, 5%. sativa) which make it a highly sedative strain. It is also often chosen to relieve the effects of stress and anxiety. Many choose it for the heavy body high to weaken their chains of chronic pain as well. And the strong appetite inducing effects are used to help those suffering from such eating disorders as anorexia.
Northern Lights weed strain flowers for six to eight weeks and yields up to 125 grams per square meter. In the average greenhouse setup Northern Lights produces roughly 100 grams per plant. This strain is a definite choice for those that prefer quality and ease over quantity.
