Northern Lights


Northern Lights Strain Review

Type: Indica/Sativa Hybrid

Northern Lights is one of the first successful and stable Indica/Sativa hybrids. It was first entered into Cannabis Cup in 1989 when several NL #5 seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989,1998, and again in 2009.

We haven’t seen this strain around town for quite a few years, so we were quite happy when we had a chance to get our fingers sticky, and our taste buds satisfied from these organically-homegrown nuggets.

Not the strongest smelling bud, but it has a distinct lemony/citrusy smell. The smoke was extremely smooth in a spliff, with a sweet earthy taste. Great high. This review took me ages to write.

  9. hello im new here and i’ve been suffering from insomnia and lately depression due to the untimely death of my best friend 🙁 i used to smoke some strong English cheese (indica) and it really helped me with my insomnia and sleep problems. I recently moved to SA but i dont have any marijuana to help with any of my problems so i spend most of my nights up till 5am and my days isolating myself in my room, anyway i really need a good sativa hybrid or indica weed in Johannesburg near south hills (not sure on locations yet) to help me with these problems…. any help?

  10. As a new smoker this is probably one of my favourites that i have had the pleasure of smoking. It smells great and tastes great. 🙂

  11. I suffer from Breast Cancer, which for me, is basically a Death Sentence on my life, the thoughts of having Breast Cancer burns and itches simultaneously in my heart that i was dead alive (and looks hideous). I heard that Hemp Oil could help, and for the price i was willing to try anything that would save my My Life. What I found out was astonishing! It was instantly getting better and better and most of the virus are gone and just little medication left for me. It’s also a light, i am very grateful to Doctor Melamede for Selling the Hemp Oil for me and his Medical Advises, for all those that have problems with Cancer Please Please Kindly let the Doctor Know at: cancermedicationtreatment@gmail.com

  12. My friend THC is for the smoker that wants to get hi, you are looking for a hi CBD strain. This is the chemical that has lots of health benefits and is the cause of better eating (very debatable) as research is throttled in this department.

    As far as strains go a good seed bank should tell you what the expected CBD and THC % should be but Thats as far as one could go in SA (I think a lot of sellers talk shit when it comes to the strain name

    I have a friend who’s mom has cancer and what seems to work well is a bucket load A grade jut used in space cakes helps her a lot.

    Good luck
