A Cup Winner with a fascinating background

When it comes to strains that have laid down 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 have been bred, inbred and hybridised so much over the years that the exact genetic remains 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, it was an exclusive Indica plant 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.

Around 1.2 meter indoor and over 2 meters outdoor

Our Northern Lights Feminized will grow as high as 1.2 m tall indoors, but it will stretch to over 2 m tall outside. It will produce relatively wider internode spacing, with long thin leafs, demonstrating its sativa background. Upon flowering is when its Afghan heritage comes to life, with dense, resin-covered nuggets which form all over the plant; however, it will produce a giant main cola.

Love her and she'll pay you back

It will yield on average 50-60 g per plant, or about 500 g per square metre under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, it can give as much as 625 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 give excellent results for yield.

Flowering is complete after 7-8 weeks, During the flowering process, all buds are formed with a light, resin-covered surface which starts to glow towards the end of the grow.

Queen of Stoned Head

Northern Lights is simply one of those knockout smokes that guarantees a couchlock session for the next few minutes. The Afghan heritage really shines through in the smoke, and anyone looking for that strong stone need seek no further than this beautiful strain.

    Title : 1st Ever grow... took some abuse.
    Comment : 1st ever time grow. Ive waited an eternity to write this review. I bought 3 seeds in total. 1 did not germinate at all. I tried the damp tissue paper method.  2nd one did germinate but died before any leaves. Third time i tried the peat pellet on propagation mat and BANG! LIFE! from there on in it was full steam ahead. Medium was 1 part top soil 1 part tomato compost and 3 parts perlite. 1st for weeks was a dream... then the problems started. Wont go into it but after joining a forum it was sorted out. I did high stress training.... dropped the pot...she took some.serious abuse... MAKE SURE TO FLUSH.. the smoke is amazing. I have a damaged spine... co codamol 4 times a day for 2 and  half years.. i havent had co codamol now for 2 weeks now. I pipe it Friday and saturdy nights... Royal Queen Seeds ypur website, service and information is top rate.. thank you. All my mate love this smoke too. Highly mood lifting and relaxing... good for headphones and music... ENJOY!

    Title : Great stoned feeling
    Comment : Northern lights is a classic that lives up to its name. It provides a great couch lock feeling associated with a pure indica strain like this. On top of that the yields were good and it was easy to grow.

    Title : Toujours au top la Northern Light !!!!
    Comment : J'ai mis les 10 à germer et au bout de 24h elles étaient toutes germées. Je les ai mis dans un pot de 3 litres. Après deux semaines et demie de croissance (400W HPS Lumatek), je les ai passé en floraison (600W HPS Lumatek). Je les ai coupé il y a peu de temps d'ailleurs elles sont toujours en séchage. J'en ai coupé deux il y a trois semaines (les plus avancées) et elles m'ont donné 58,7g sec. J'utilise la gamme "Plagron" pour l'engraissage.Conclusion : Excellente, je n'ai pas pris cette variété au hasard non plus, je la connais très bien et est toujours au top, rien à dire....
