Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode. So the desire to sit on the couch and listen to the call of munchies may be overwhelming to novice users even in lower doses.
Moreover, accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well by some experienced users.
The average negative culprits persist – dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, paranoia and anxiety in higher doses.
Highly recommended for evening use and insomnia. Also one of the purest Indica strains around (95 pct. Indica, 5 pct. Sativa) which make it a highly sedative strain. 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 helps those suffering from such eating disorders as anorexia.
Northern Light’s exact lineage and history are obscured in mystery but it is generally believed to be a mix of two landrace building block strains – Thai and Afghani.
The 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.
