Northern Light Feminised Seeds
The Northern Light certainly cannot be left out when discussing the most famous and popular cannabis plants. Northern Light was developed in California and introduced to the Netherlands in the 60’s by Neville Schoenmaker. Northern Light was the basis for the current Dutch ‘nederwiet’, so it truly is a plant the Dutch are proud of. The plant was originally and primarily a 100% Indica Afghani, but later many other hybrids were made with other strains to combine the properties of those strains, such as the longer growth of Sativa plants.
Northern Light is one of the strongest cannabis strains in the world and is often used for the testing of medicinal cannabis. I have yet to come across a Dutch coffee shop where Northern Light is not on the menu. It is also used for all sorts of hybrids. The Northern Light has won the High Times Cannabis Cup more than once, namely in 1989, 1998 and again in 2009.
Northern Light was originally developed to grow indoors, but it can also be grown outdoors. Indoors, it reaches an average height of 1.2 metres. Outdoors, give it plenty of space, sun and nutrition. With this extra love and attention it can even grow up to 2 metres tall. The Northern Light has a very high yield, so is more than worth your extra attention. Northern Light has a flowering period of about 7/8 weeks, but some growers choose to harvest it after 7 weeks. This gives it a slightly stronger flavour, but somewhat reduces its effect. If you really want to go for the powerful high effect of Northern Light, I suggest waiting to harvest the plant until the trichomes (small resin secreting stalks/hair) begin to turn light brown. This is after about 8 weeks.
Northern Light has a distinct, sweet scent and a soft, sweet and spicy flavour which will get you quite high. It makes you very alert, happy and active. Northern Light also performs miracles with regard to creativity and energy. It is certainly not a couch potato and is good to smoke before going out. The unique flavour and strong high of Northern Light really must be experienced. In the medical field Northern Light is used against stress, anxiety and pain.
