Northern Lights is a true classic and forms the basis for almost all promising indoor varieties. Rumors are saying that Northern Lights first emerged near Seattle in Washington State and propagated from the Netherlands after 1985. However, the strain has been popular for decades because of its narcotic character, ease of cultivation, high flower leaf ratio, good yields, compact buds and abundant resin production. It is therefore not surprising that Northern Lights has won several marijuana awards over the years including three times the first prize during the High Times Cannabis Cup.

The composition of Northern Lights feminized seeds 100% Indica genes and is therefore nicely balanced. Highly recommended for both novice growers, as well as for experienced growers who are looking for high quality and generous yields.

The cultivation of Northern Lights feminized seeds

Northern Lights is a very lucrative plant and optimized for indoor cultivation, but as for almost all our seeds, it is also possible to grow outside and harvest around the end of September or mid-October.
Growing Northern Light is definitely a special experience. Despite the strong Indica background, a number of distinct sativa characteristics can be found during the growth. For example, the plant produces long thin leaves and creates a lot of space between the branches.

Northern Lights is also a good plant to experiment with. For example, you can harvest the plant a bit earlier to achieve a more powerful taste. Keep in mind that the effect will be slightly less strong if you do so. However, it is also possible to harvest slightly later. In this way you strengthen the effect. Do you choose the latter? Then we advise to harvest after the trichomes start to turn slightly brown. This usually happens after the 8th flowering week.

Northern lights strain flowering time

With a indoor cultivation, the flowering time is 7-8 weeks and the plant reaches an average height of 50 cm to 80. However, outdoors the plant can become much larger. With enough light, heat, power and space, this plant can reach a height of 2 meters. In that case you no longer have a cannabis plant, but a weed tree.


Both indoors and outdoors, the yields won't disappoint you. On average, one plant yields up to 50 - 60 grams of dried weed. This is about 550 grams per m2 in a SOG setup under a 600W lamp. Outdoors the yields can reach up to 650 gram per m2. 

Taste, smell and effect of Northern Lights weed

Northern Lights weed has a powerful neutral taste, with a sharp pungent, sweet and spicy aftertaste. The psychoactive effects of Northern Lights are very noticeable in the body and will bring the body to rest while the spirit gets dreamy and euphoric spirit. With the 18% THC content it activates a typical lethargic stoned Indica effect and guarantees a complete relaxation of the muscles.

    Highly recommended! As I expected from a pure Indica strain the plant remains small sized. That was also the reason why I chose NL. A real classic which is also easy to grow. The plants have yielded good harvests for me and both the taste and the effect are awesome!

    Last time I bought NL regular seeds, but I’m glad I chose the feminized variety this time. Currently my plants are flowering. Can’t wait until I can harvest. So far no problems. The plants grow stable and strong

    These Northern Lights are definitly one of my favorites. Good for beginners as well. Nice balanced strain and easy growing. A few times too much water was given but the strain didn’t gave a sh*t.
