This is a question that has been tossed around forever.

1. There is the original by Sensi Seeds but it very different now then it used to be. Still has to be a top consideration.

2. Dr. Atomic has a N.L. that people used to rave about but not so much anymore. I’ve had some bad experiences w/ Dr. A. so pass.

3. Dinafem has their version of a N.L. called “Industrial Plant” which is very nice from personal experience. Same mother of Jack Herer (bud, not the man)

4. KC Brains has a N.L.Special but I’ve heard hermie issues come with it.

5. I’ve heard and seed decent reviews from Nirvana’s N.L. but if you go with them, go with their N.L. X Blueberry. It’s better then the straight N.L.

6. Seedsman has a N.L. that I believe is a nice version of the original strain.

7. Doggie Nuts- avoid their N.L. puely based on their reputation and expensive price structure.

8. White Label- they are associated with Sensi Seeds and probably worth consideration of their N.L. too.

And there are tons of N.L. hybrids that will increase taste and yield with a lot more choices. personally, I’d try to find a N.L. #5 from a reliable breeder and go with that but it’s getting tougher and tougher to find those too. And lastly, ask 100 people the same question and you’ll get 100 different recommendations.

Most of the foreign breeders won’t ship to the U.S. To be specific, I would look to Attitude, Everyonedoesit, and Herbies for most of those listed. Dr. Atomic is sold by numerous vendors. You can get Nirvana directly from them. Do some google searching to find where each is available.

Now on to the Mr. Nice “Ortega”- read all about the issues at the Mr. Nice forums but what I know is this. If you veg them long, they will hermie on you. Some report almost 90% of the plants throwing off banana’s. I bought the last pack but forget where, so I bought it quick because IT WAS THE LAST PACK. Then I started researching it too and realized my mistake. BUT, if you veg them 2 weeks and then flower, keeping them small- I’ve read this changes the hermie issue down to maybe less then 10% of the plants. If you keep a close eye, you should be able to pick off the naner’s and keep the room from seeding. I also forgot to mention Ceres has a “N.L. X Skunk” hybrid which I just grew out and it was also a very nice item- don’t know how I forgot about it but I’m smoking it as I type.

I should also mention Sensi’s N.L. #5 X Haze. although it’s a beast when growing, the seeds are very expensive and it takes a long time to flower- it’s ultra potent and is an oldie and still a goody. Grow this and you won’t want to grow anything else for a while! Below is Attitudes description which is quite interesting:

Sensi Seeds Northern Lights #5 x Haze : Opposites collide in perfect hybrid fusion! Northern Lights#5 x Haze balances the finest features of soaring tropical Sativa and voluptuous, earth-shaking Indica. Universally regarded as a high-point in cannabis breeding, many weed scholars consider her unsurpassed, even today. Of all the hugely popular ganja varieties launched in the second wave of hybrid development – including Silver Haze, Shiva Skunk and Silver Pearl – the most successful has always been NL#5xHaze. Her tendency to make a permanent impression on smokers and growers owes a great deal to the fact that her Sativa genes are fully and joyfully expressed, instead of being dominated by the power of her Afghani parent. Upon release, this enormously potent and productive seed-strain swept the cannabis awards and sparked something of a ‘grass-roots’ revolution in breeding. NL#5xHaze reminded the cannabis community that Sativa magic was rapidly being bred out of commercial strains in the quest for the shortest, fastest plants. Indica genes were becoming the dominant influence in almost every crop and the true Haze rocket-ride was in danger of becoming a memory. NL#5xHaze helped to turn the tide by demonstrating that growers could have it all – mind-blowing Sativa effect and weighty Indica production – for just a few extra weeks in flowering. Expect significant height gain from NL#5xHaze. Indoor plants can be flowered with little or no vegetation period, which compensates for their extra time in blooming. Rooted clones and even seedlings can be flowered immediately and may go on to exceed 1m by harvest time. Gaps between internodes are quickly filled by long, running colas. At the mid-point of blooming main stem and branches are completely obscured by sticky, profusely hairy buds which then swell in every direction until the end of flowering. It’s quite common for NL#5xHaze to produce terminal buds longer and thicker than a grower’s arm, even at indoor heights. From cannabis seed, Northern Lights#5 x Haze produces huge, bountiful, uniform plants and is very easy to clone, producing crop after crop of strong cuttings. Her distinctly psychedelic Haze power is complemented by the yield and crystal of NL#5. Growers who treasure their Northern Lights#5 x Haze mother plants have been known to produce killer harvests for a decade or more with no loss of quality.

About Northern Lights Seeds

Background

While some cannabis strains are high on hype but short on history, the Northern Lights weed strain has both.

If you’ve become even remotely interested in smoking or cultivating cannabis, then Northern Lights has probably cropped up on your radar.

Even if you haven’t smoked Northern Lights weed directly, odds are you’ve picked up another strain, such as Super Silver Haze, that descends from Northern Lights seeds.

Northern Lights has so many children running around due to a history that goes back to the 1970s. In those days, growing marijuana in the US was very much illegal, making it risky to document, much less share, the information surrounding your grow.

As such, specifics about the exact how and when Northern Lights seeds were first planted are scant, but a few precious nugs of information have made it to 2020.

In the late 1970s, it’s said that pure Afghani landrace indica seeds were propagated near Seattle, Washington. Afghani landrace indicas are well known for their amazingly grower-friendly qualities — they’re short, bushy, fast-growing, and reward your patience with scale-busting yields.

One particularly vigorous phenotype was selected from the bunch and named Northern Lights #5. Somehow, this pheno made its way to Holland, where it eventually landed in what’s now known as Sensi Seeds Seed Bank, itself a major cannabis institution.

Today, Sensi Seeds Northern Lights seeds are some of the most well-documented, tested, and cannabis cup winning strains of all time. If you grow Sensi Seeds Northern Lights seeds for yourself, you’ll quickly find the same characteristics that the unknown heroes who cultivated this strain decades ago found — ultra-resinous buds that lay the indica on thick.

Growing Northern Lights Seeds

Grow Difficulty:

This Northern Lights grow guide begins with words that are music to any aspiring grower’s ears: Northern Lights seeds are easy to grow no matter your skill level and are heavy producers come harvest time.

There is one significant reason for their ease of growing, and that comes down to genetics.

Landrace cannabis strains are pure cannabis strains that have never been crossed with anything else. When you find them, they’re growing in their natural environment and have developed exceptional adaptive characteristics for that environment, making them tough, lean, and fruitful plants.

Northern Lights seeds are directly descended from Afghani and Thai landrace strains, giving them the benefits of highly evolved genetics that they pass on in the grow room.

Featuring a compact plant size, short flowering period, hefty yield, and sun-loving characteristics, growing Northern Lights seeds indoors and outdoors is a pure pleasure for growers.

Optimal Growing Conditions and Climate:

Northern Lights plants are loved for the way they take to the soil without fuss.

That’s not to say that they’re set it and forget it seeds, however. You still need to approach them with your green thumb forward, beginning with the soil. Northern Lights seeds feel at home in nutrient-rich, loamy soil that sits in a medium-acidic pH range.

When growing Northern Lights cannabis seeds, you want to hit the usual three nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium), with extra attention paid to nitrogen. That’s because Northern Lights seeds particularly like nitrogen and have a lower likelihood than other strains of being burned by it.

Keep in mind that growing Northern Lights seeds doesn’t require special amounts of trace nutrients, as some boutique strains do. Therefore, keep feeding to a reasonable minimum. Feeding your Northern Lights seeds excessive nutrients can result in nutrient burn, whereas there is a lesser risk to your plants if you observe them and feed only what’s needed.

Northern Lights plants love warm conditions, which makes it an ideal strain for outdoor growers in areas with long, drawn-out, hot summers with plenty of sun. For indoor growers, growing Northern Lights seeds requires attention paid to venting heat away from your grow room as increased lumens means higher heat output.

Flowering Time:

The flowering period for Northern Lights seeds is forgivingly short — another reason why this strain is such a crowd-pleaser.

At between 6 to 8 weeks, with most growers managing to pull a harvest down just before week 7, Northern Lights plants bestow fat morsels of indica-steeped goodness with haste.

When grown outdoors, Northern Lights seeds hit their prime and are ready to harvest in early October — assuming you live in a warm climate with long summers and days to match.

Want to ensure a fast flowering time for your indoor-grown Northern Lights strain?

The key is to give the Northern Lights cannabis strain plenty of light during the vegetative growth period — at least 18 hours per day — before flipping them into a 12/12 light cycle to trigger flowering

Yield:

When you hold tiny Northern Lights seeds in the palm of your hand, it’s a wonder to think that they’ll grow into high-yield powerhouses producing stacked ounces of flower.

Sensi Seeds Northern Lights seeds are the definitive variety available today with Sensi Seed bank having taken stewardship of the original strain decades ago. Since countless people around the world have a Sensi Seeds Northern Lights grow under their belt, their yield averages are reliable figures.

You can expect an average yield of 17 to 19 ounces per meter square meter from Northern Lights seeds grown indoors. Outdoor growers giving their plants plenty of sunshine and taking advantage of multiple harvest cycles per season can expect anywhere from 22 ounces per square meter to nearly 52 ounces…per plant!

Height:

Northern Lights seeds grow into compact plants with deep green leaves that lend very well to the Sea of Green (SOG) growing method. Indoor plants have a height range of between 80cm and 130cm, while Northern Lights plants grown outdoors only bump up to 150cm and 200cm in height.

Manipulating plant height can reward you with yields on the higher end of what the Northern Lights strain is capable of. As mentioned, using a Sea of Green growing method to expose an increased amount of leaf surface area to light aids photosynthesis and leads to bigger bud production with beautiful cola distribution across plants.

Resistance to Pests and Mold:

Being a direct descendant to two strong landrace strains has major advantages, with natural resistance to pests and mold being amongst them.

Northern Lights is an exceptionally steadfast strain that will treat you right come harvest time if you do the same for your plants during their growth stages.

Correctly managing temperature, humidity, ventilation, and plant spacing is critical for successfully growing Northern Lights seeds indoors without falling victim to root rot and gray mold.

Outdoor growers will be much more concerned with pests such as whiteflies and mites, but again, with vigilance and the occasional application of natural oils such as neem oil, your Northern Lights grow should come through without significant issues.

Strain Description and Properties

The Appearance of Northern Lights Weed:

Even if a strain can manage high THC levels and strong medicinal properties, if it doesn’t look good, it probably won’t gain much of a following.

The Northern Lights weed strain has become a Herculean figure amongst cannabis varieties for being a potent combo of brawn and beauty.

When you hold Northern Lights weed in your hand, you’ll be struck by the crystalline light show as you twirl the nug and let it shine brightly like a chandelier. This is some seriously frosty nug, folks.

Like any true landrace indica, Northern Lights weed has incredible heft while still managing to be soft and almost juicy. Its calyxes fluff up like clouds with a gentle swirl that beckons you to roll it up and take a puff.

When you hold Northern Lights weed in your hand, you’ll be struck by the crystalline light show as you twirl the nug and let it shine brightly like a chandelier. This is some seriously frosty nug, folks.

Dominant Cannabinoids Found in Northern Lights Seeds:

THC is the dominant cannabinoid found in Northern Lights seeds. On average, you can expect Northern Lights weed to contain around 18 to 20% THC.

While 20% THC may not seem high when compared to the 30%+ THC range of today’s hybrids, Northern Lights weed pack high concentrations of strong-acting terpenes. As such, the effects of Northern Lights weed are outsized and unmistakable.

CBD-seekers will need to look elsewhere, however, as Northern Lights seeds contain just 0.10% CBD or less.

Dominant Terpenes Found in Northern Lights Seeds:

Northern Lights seeds are packed with the big three terpenes for sleep, pain relief, and putting a big smile on your face.

The Myrcene terpene is the most dominant terpene found in Northern Lights seeds. It brings in a massive helping of sedative effects that are responsible for making you relaxed, softening your muscles, and tucking you into bed.

Caryophyllene terpenes are the second-most concentrated terpenes in Northern Lights seeds. Also found in black pepper, caryophyllene is responsible for the spicy, kushy scent when you break off a piece of Northern Lights nug. Moreover, caryophyllene is a strong anti-inflammatory that aids pain-relief and recovery.

Lastly, limonene terpenes are also present and accounted for in Northern Lights weed. These terpenes are predominant in OG strains, along with most of today’s popular hybrid plants. Limonene is a mood-booster, helping you turn that frown upside down when you smoke a fat bowl of Northern Lights weed.

Effects of Northern Lights Weed:

Originally designated as a two-hit-quit strain, Northern Lights weed knocks your lights out at the end of the day — but not before showing you a good time, first.

Just after your first inhale, you’ll notice a wave of good vibes warming you up. The world suddenly takes on a much friendlier feeling than it did before, and you’ll probably find yourself laughing a whole lot more, too.

The happy euphoria of the high’s first phase drifts into an overall sense of relaxation that just keeps on going. Northern Lights weed is what we call Netflix and smoke weed — in other words, it’s the perfect companion for chilling out and seeing the world through rose-colored glasses.

Medical Properties of Northern Lights Seeds:

Northern Lights plants are grown for their powerfully effective medical properties, including relief for stress, pain, insomnia, anxiety, and PTSD.

Stress is the common thread linking the ailments that Northern Lights weed treats. Because of the abundance of the myrcene terpene found in Northern Lights seeds, the strain is instantly relaxing and produces a long-lasting medicine for the nerves.

Negative Effects of Northern Lights Weed:

Northern Lights weed has a reputation for being a quintessential stoner strain. That’s because even when you smoke too much, the effects don’t stray far into a place you don’t want to go.

Instead, the most common negative effects of Northern Lights weed are dry mouth, dry and red eyes, a little room-spinning dizziness, and a hint of paranoia.

When in doubt, start your smoke sesh off small, wait to see where the effects take you, and then increase the dosage or remain where you are.
