What Is Northern Lights Cannabis?
Northern Lights Cannabis is an Indica dominant Cannabis hybrid created by combining the genetics from an Indica with a Sativa Marijuana plant. There are two different ways to grow Northern Lights, the first is to buy the seeds, available for sale on many websites. The second is to obtain clones or cuttings from a reliable grower.
The Cannabis buds produced by Northern lights plants has a very distinct appearance, with it’s neon green leaf colours contrasting against the red and orange hairs with a very generous coating of THC laden trichomes.
Both the surface of the buds, and surrounding sweet leaves are completely covered in trichomes, producing a very glistening, colourful display. In general, mature buds appear to have a silver-blue hue, with the hairs or stigmas (white flowers) maturing and changing to a golden yellow through to an orangey-red.
Although a strong form of Cannabis, Northern Lights plants do not emit an over-powering odour during flowering. As maturity approaches expect a subtle fragrance of pine and skunk that can be easily managed using carbon filters and odour control methods.
When correctly dried and cured, Northern Lights Cannabis buds are dense, but fluffy, coated in resin with a slight, subtle aroma. When burnt, the weed produces a thick, aromatic smoke with smells reminiscent of a good old-school hash.
The taste has an almost hash-like flavour, with a fruity, blueberry after-taste. High THC levels make it one of the stronger forms of weed available, and since it’s introduction to the UK back in the late 1980’s, many indoor growers have planted Northern Lights Cannabis seeds.
