Northern Lights is one of those strains that has played a large part in breeding over the last three decades, it has provided a genetic base for some of the best loved strains available. This strain has been popular since the 80s when Northern Lights was setting the bar for all other Indica strains, a bar that is still observed today. Northern Lights has won a number of prestigious awards and, for many years, completely took over the various harvest festivals. In the end it was requested that she be removed from the competition since it was not fair on any of the other strains. Northern Lights is the result of years of careful back-breeding, testing, and selection, all of this testing also resulted in a strain which is accessible to every grower since it can now be grown indoors. A compact and sturdy plant, although still with an extremely high yield, this strain is perfect for growers who may have limited space or who wish to get the most out of one crop.
This is the classic Northern Lights meaning that it is sold in the form of regular seeds. Regular seeds ensure the genetic purity of the strain as well as retaining the charm and simplicity of growing and breeding. Many growers everywhere still prefer to use regular seeds because of their many excellent traits, one example is ease of breeding. Regular seeds grow into a roughly 60/40 split of female and male plants which means that the breeder is provided with plenty of choice when selecting the parents for their next crop. They can figure out which are the finest male and female in the crop and allow them to breed and pass on their genetic material. The result of this is a constantly improving quality of plant throughout the generations.
Northern Lights is 90% Indica and has an astoundingly short flowering period of just 45 - 50 days. It grows best in sunny or Mediterranean environments where it has plenty of access to direct sunlight and is a compact plant with a heavy yield. There is a reason that this plant is so very popular and so trusted by the cannabis community after all these years.
