Now available in our Autoflowering variant, the genetics of Northern Lights is one of the most confused of all existing cannabis seeds strains because there is no one who can take entire credit for its creation.
Northern Lights was developed as an indoor cannabis seed strain in the late 1970s near Seattle in Washington, although the genetics involved in the cross were known to have come from California the original home of a great many of the most famous cannabis seeds strains.
It was initially a stabilised cannabis sativa strain crossed with an Afghani indica hybrid. Northern Lights travelled to Holland as a clone where it was introduced to the commercial cannabis seed market in 1985 by The Seed Bank. Because it arrived as a clone it could not be inbred for stability and cannabis seed production, therefore Skunk No 1 and Original Haze were used to produce seeds off it so it could be used as a parent plant.
Northern Lights distinctly shows its Afghani indica genetic background; it is a small plant that produces, big highly resinous flowers. Although it was initially developed for indoor growers excellent results have been produced outside.
Northern Lights has a sweet resinous taste and produces a physically comfortable but lazy feeling, known to some as ‘couch lock’.

Choosing the right cannabis strain for you:
The cannabis indica strain will provide a relaxing feeling which is why it's synonymous with the term "In da couch" and provides a relaxing feeling and mellow mood. It is the strain that is often used for medicinal purposes as it's effective for treating sleeping disorders, aches and pains. Indica is also commonly used to treat many disorders and diseases including fibromyalgia, parkinsons and multiple sclerosis.
This strain of medical marijuana provides a stimulating and uplifting experience. Sativa will put you in a great mood and create a great feeling without feeling drowsy. Sativa is a popular cannabis strain by artists or those looking for creativity. The Sativa strain can also provide medicinal benefits for those suffering from mental or behavioural problems, depression, stress and ADHD.
The cannabis hybrid strains provide the best of both strains that are genetically modified strains that may be either indica dominant or sativa dominant. Depending on which strain is dominant will dictate the effects. Indica dominant strains will provide a more mellow and calming feeling.
