Northern Lights has been one of the most popular Indicas on the block since before LeBron James was born. The strain with Afghan Indica heritage can be found in every advanced cannabis country (from Holland to America to Spain) and it’s a virtual guarantee a dispensary you enter carries a strain with Northern Lights in it. That’s because the strain has been used to breed over 20 other strains and there’s over 5 version of it floating around (more on that later). Some of its offshoots include Northern Lights #5 (the pure, most notable Indica), Northern Lights #7, and Northern Lights #12 Skunk and it’s frequently blended with Hazes. For an Indica, Northern Lights a tad tropical,a s it’s fruitier than a Hash Plant or White Rhino. The sometimes Sativa scent may have something to do with the versions that include a Thai Sativa cross. Overall, Northern Lights has a distinct character that allows it to rival other top-line Indicas like G13 and White Widow in terms of lore and quality. The strain is a beautiful flower to behold, both under a microscope and from the other end of a well-lit blunt.
