Northern Lights by Pyramid Seeds is derived from a very old phenotype that is quite difficult to find these days.
Pyramid advises hydroponic gardening, although it will thrive on any grow medium. It is a little but tough plant.
Northern Lights has a compact structure that belies its high yield potential.
Growth is modest by the standards of many new hybrid strains, and the leaves are exceptionally meaty and dark green.
It has a strong odour during flowering, hence it is recommended to employ air-filtering if grown indoors near neighbours where this is likely to be an issue.
In a 55-day flowering cycle, yields of 450-600 gr/m2 can be obtained indoors.
Outdoor gardening, where it is ideal for balconies because of its small stature, will yield between 250 and 100 gr/plant for a September harvest in the northern hemisphere. Buds contain a massive amount of resin.
The aroma and flavour are both very sweet, with a pretty strong odour.
THC levels are at a high of 21%, with 1.7 percent CBD.
The effect is strong and long-lasting, beginning high and then fading into an extremely relaxed stone.
Winner of the first prize at La Bella Flor in 2006 and the second prize at Spannabis in 2007.
