What is Northern Lights?
A strain very popular in the medical cannabis community, Northern Lights is reputed to relax both the mind and body, allowing the consumer to relax, unwind, and forget the problems they are experiencing. The strain is a descendant of the powerful indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains. Heavily packed with a THC content that typically ranges from 15–22%, patients that consume Northern Lights will be left pleasantly high — so much so that after a few hits you just may find yourself feeling like the mysterious lights dancing across the skies.
Appearance, Aroma, Flavor
Northern Lights buds are pretty densely packed, with thick and prominently displayed leaves that protrude slightly outwards. They are dark, olive green in color, often with streaks of purple, green, and blue running through, feeling similar to the shades that can be seen in the natural light show offered by the aurora borealis. Similar to the environment you’d see the northern lights in, the buds of this strain have a pungent woodsy and pine scent, feeling all too reminiscent of adventurous time spent in the mountains or camping during a long weekend. The flavor of this strain is similar to the smell, sweet yet earth-like which makes for a surprisingly pleasant combination.
The effects of the Northern Lights strain are about as dreamy and euphoric as the spectacle of the aurora borealis. The strain’s psychoactive effects settle in firmly throughout the body, often sending consumers into a blissful, altered reality, where being comfortably relaxed and lazy is welcome. Due to its full-bodied, potent Indica qualities, many prefer to enjoy this strain once the sun has already gone down. The strain also has a tendency to induce happiness and spark creativity.
Top Medical Uses
Due to the powerful body effects brought on by the strain’s high, Northern Lights is popular among patients seeking relief from chronic pain, migraines, arthritis, and other ailments. Also, lack of sleep and appetite are no match for the power of Northern Lights. It can also have uplifting effects, making it great for patients dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression.
