Northern Lights Strain Genetics
A cross of the legendary, strong indica, Northern Lights and a particularly hardy Canadian Ruderalis, Northern Lights from Fastbuds is a popular indica-dominant hybrid strain. FastBuds started in LA in 2010 and have since expanded to Europe.
Their unique selling point – they bring the best, most popular Cali strains here and mix them to produce simple-to-grow autoflowering varieties; so, even novice growers can enjoy a decent harvest of the best gear around today.
Northern Lights Strain Terpene Profile
Northern Lights is a pungent little thing (stealth growers take heed!) the aroma is pleasant and fruity though, as opposed to dank with the presence of the terpene caryophyllene largely responsible.
The taste is sweet, candy-like and has a strong overtone of vanilla. Be aware… it’s very moreish, a few tokes may leave you craving more and with potent effects, this strain has truly earned its legendary status.
Northern Lights Strain Effects
Very balanced and long-lasting, the high from Northern Lights is a lovely mixture of sativa and indica effects. It comes on light and inspiring, clearing away the cobwebs and opening your mind: a few tokes will do you well in the daytime and allow you to remain active.
The more you use the deeper and denser the high becomes, so don’t overdo daytime use. As the evening draws on, gather friends and retire to the comfy chairs to enjoy the slowly building body-buzz and the full impact of the indica heritage.
Medical Benefits Northern Lights Strain
Like its parent plant, Northern Express has a powerful effect, deeply relaxing and soothing, it will ease both body and mind. Its 1.4% CBD is considerable for a strain not specifically cultivated for medicinal use. CBD appears to help alleviate the symptoms of many conditions from Crohn’s Disease and inflammatory conditions, to chronic pain and anxiety.
If you need mild pain relief in the daytime Northern Express may be good, in higher doses it may make you dozy; increase the dose to amplify the body-effects and for stronger pain relief.
How to Grow Northern Lights Autoflowering Strain
Super easy-to-grow, Northern Lights (like other autoflowering varieties from FastBuds) basically takes care of herself, indoors or out. Plants are small but heavily-laden, with lots of budding sites, so she can produce a good yield. Give her love, light and a decent compost and you will do well.
Whether you’re a novice gardener or an experienced grower the product won’t disappoint, buds are dense, sticky and tasty.
