When it comes to strains that have made their mark on cannabis plant genetics, there are few names that can be mentioned as often as Northern Lights. The exact Northern Lights heritage is thought to have originated on the west coast of America, from eleven different seeds. Each of these varieties have been bred, inbred and hybridised so much over the years that the exact genetic make-up remains a mystery. One thing that is certain is that Northern Lights has been the basis for many of the award-winning classics in the history of the industry.
According to legend, Northern Lights was an exclusive Indica plant from Afghanistan, although some of the original eleven plants were said to contain Thai genetics. Royal Queen's version is still an indica-dominant hybrid, but carries a lot of sativa in its leaf structure.
It will grow up to 1.2m indoors, but will stretch to over 2m tall outside, producing relatively wide internode spacing with long thin leaves, demonstrating its sativa background. Upon flowering, its Afghan heritage starts to show: dense, resin-covered nuggets form all over the plant with a giant main cola swelling in the centre.
It will yield on average 50-60g per plant, or about 500g per square metre under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, it can give as much as 100g 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.
During the flowering process of 7-8 weeks, all the buds develop a light, resin-covered surface which starts to glow towards the end of the growth.
Northern Lights is one of those knock-out smokes that guarantees a couchlock session. The Afghan heritage really shines through in the smoke, and anyone looking for that strong stone need look no further.
