Northern Lights is a pure Indica marijuana strain that is formerly known as CI #5 F1. Its exact lineage is unknown but it is believed to be a descendant of two landrace strains – Original Afghani and Thai. An award winning strain, this flower is one of those strains that is capable of immediate relaxing effects. Northern Lights gives an effect that will make the user’s body slam into a feeling of numbness, laziness, and drowsiness.
At the end of the day, the person using it will be longing for a bed or a couch to sit on so they can munch and sleep after. With 16% – 21% THC level, it is a favorite of long time cannabis users. It is best used in the nighttime due to its drowsy effect on the body.
When it comes to its appearance, Northern Lights have dark green leaves that are broad and they are mold and disease resistant. The flowers of this marijuana strain are a fresh pine scent, with an earthy taste, but with a sweet candy flavor when one starts using Northern Lights.
Like most other marijuana strains, it also has a lot of medical uses. Northern Lights are used for treating insomnia because of its relaxing effects. It is also because it is a pure indica (pure ones are highly sedative). In addition, it is also used to relieve some effects of anxiety, depression, and stress. Due to the high it gives to the user, it is also used to calm chronic pain to those who are experiencing it. Those with anorexia as well can use Northern Lights as it ignites hunger to the one who’s using it.
