What are the origin and genetic composition of Northern Lights feminized seeds?
In a market flooded with hybrids and few heirloom strains, Northern Lights is as close as you can get to a pure Indica experience. The strain is 90% Indica and 10% Sativa and results from a cross between the cerebral stimulating Thai Sativa and the renowned Afghani Indica. THC levels range between 15% and 22%, and CBD is less than 1%.
Its origin is similar to the chicken and egg dilemma..which came first? According to some anecdotes, NL was first bred in the 70s in Seattle, Washington, by a breeder commonly referred to as ‘The Indian.’ Others suggest that Northern Lights first appeared in California before The Indian began breeding it. Either way, everyone agrees that this is a revolutionary strain.
Northern Lights buds are aesthetically pleasing thanks to the dark green leaves with purple specks, deep orange pistils, and a shiny crystalline layer. The plants grow to a maximum height of 120cm and tend to be extra bushy.
