Advantages and benefits of Northern Lights

  • Fast-growing plant that is easy to manage;
  • Cooled pure Indica high;
  • Good yields.


Chances are that nobody would have heard of Northern Lights without the ‘King of Cannabis’ Nevil Schoenmakers, the founder of the first Dutch seed bank.

The story goes that it was Nevil who brought the female clones of the plant to the Netherlands, where he experimented with Northern Lights strain and many other cannabis strains from all over the world. By the way, the Northern Lights is partly derived from an Afghani Indica, and this is reflected in its characteristics. Not a very large cannabis plant, but one that produces a lot of THC.

Nevil also crossed Northern Lights varieties with the Thai Sativa, which explains why many of the current Northern Lights varieties are sold as Afghani Indica and Thai Sativa hybrids.

In 1985 he introduced the first variety of this newly discovered strain in his “Seed Bank of Holland”. He promoted Northern Lights #1 as a pure Afghani Indica. From that moment on she flew off the shelves and quickly became a bestseller. After its introduction it didn’t take long before the strain won several awards worldwide.

How to grow Northern Lights? (Indoor and outdoor)

Almost all indoor strains contain Northern Light genetics. The feminized Northern Lights marijuana seeds are therefore very suitable for indoor growing. In addition to indoor growing, outdoor growing is also an option, where a sunny and warm summer is essential.

Northern Lights cannabis seeds are easy to grow. The plants grow into relatively small representatives, which develop especially well in width. They have a very dense and compact structure. As the plant matures, the dark green buds are covered with a thick, sparkling layer of trichomes.

Although the buds of the species are large and densely packed, they are not so dense that mildew becomes a problem. The Northern Lights are therefore a great strain to grow in humid conditions.

Flowering time

Northern Lights feminized has a flowering time of about 8 weeks, which makes it a very fast strain. If you grow all year round you can easily harvest a few times. Harvesting time outdoors is from mid-September and the smell is moderate during flowering.

Size of the plant

Northern Lights feminized seeds grow into compact, bushy plants with firm buds that are easy to prune thanks to a large space between the internode spacing. The average height of the plant is about 80 cm.

Some phenotypes of the species, such as the original NL # 1 phenotype, can produce only one central bud, resulting in a tall, elongated plant that has the appearance of a lollipop.

  • Height indoors: 50 to 80 cm
  • Height outside: 100 to 200 cm


Despite the very short flowering time, the plants are able to achieve an impressive yield.

  • Maximum indoor yield: 400 to 600 grams per square meter (50 to 60 grams per plant).
  • Maximum outdoor yield: 500 to 625 grams per plant
Effects Northern Lights

Are you ready for a delicious knock out stoned effect? Then the Northern Lights is very suitable! The properties of the Indica are strongly expressed in the effect which is mainly physical in nature.

Depending on the amount of cannabis and how you feel during the day, the strain can relax, calm down, tire, sedate and sometimes even cause a couch-lock effect. Northern Lights is therefore especially suitable for a relaxing moment on the couch after a busy day’s work and is therefore less suitable for strenuous activities.

Side effects

Dry eyes and a dry moment are the most common side effects of Northern Lights. However, these side effects are easily remedied by drinking enough water.

Smell and taste of Northern Lights

When the weed is dried, the aromas and flavors will be well expressed. Think of a delicious smell and taste of honey-musk, nuanced by a note of wild juniper and afghani.
