Top Marks for Taste, Traits & Tension Relief
Originally bred in Seattle during the 70s, Northern Lights soon made her way to Holland, where master breeders expertly broke down her genetics to create 11 equally amazing Indica strains. And you’ve guessed it, Northern Lights #10 Feminized is the tenth.
Descending from the lofty likes of Thai Sativa and an Afghani landrace strain, this weed will lure you in with promises of immensely resinous nugs, a fast growth and flowering rate, and a sturdy resilience to molds and pathogens.
With up to 20% THC content, pine and musk flavors are only the beginning of the enjoyment Northern Lights #10 can induce, and her profoundly relaxing high can knock flat even veteran smokers if not careful.
Though an Indica-leaning hybrid, the slight Sativa influence of this strain’s genetics lends this herb an uplifting effect when it comes to her high, which is readily utilized by medicinal tokers as an effective reprieve from anxiety and depression. Due to her soothing, muscle relaxing properties, Northern Lights #10 Fem can also work little miracles when it comes to pain relief, driving away the symptoms of migraines and arthritis amongst other ailments.
If you’re a newbie grower looking for a strain that’s fuss-free, this is the weed for you - her compact structure and generally resilient nature make her ideal for beginners looking to develop their skills, and though her size can vary dramatically, she’s still a good strain to grow indoors.
Some small amount of management is required to keep Northern Lights #10 in tip-top condition, but there’s no need to remove males from the batch with our all-fem seeds, which removes some of the work and leaves you free to enjoy your chunky nugs.
Flavor and Fragrance of Northern Lights #10 Feminized
With the alluring fragrance of musk and pine, underpinned with notes of cedar, sandalwood, hashish and maple, it’s no wonder that it’s hard to resist Northern Lights #10 Feminized.
When exhaling, this weed leaves a sweet-sour aftertaste on the tongue, full of floral notes.
It takes only a few hits after lighting up for Northern Lights #10 to overwhelm the senses with a cerebral euphoria. Fast-acting, she’ll enhance your mood by lifting the weight of mental baggage and by drawing on her Indica-dominance, compel you to sit back, relax and have your stress and fatigue soothed away.
Tense muscles will loosen and discomforts will ease as you lose yourself in self-reflection - the perfect way to unwind after a long, hard day.
Though Northern Lights #10 Fem’s effects are pleasant, caution is still advised, and we recommend a low and slow approach to ensure you can enjoy this weed without adverse effects. Common (and likely) side effects include cottonmouth and dry, bloodshot eyes - but overdoing it can increase feelings of paranoia and heighten anxiety, so keep doses reasonable and switch to another strain if you’re THC sensitive.
Medical Uses of Northern Lights #10 Feminized
As well as being an amazing recreational strain, Northern Lights #10 also provides potent and long-lasting relief from a variety of physical aches and pains, in addition to alleviating emotion and mental concerns.
The fast-acting euphoria induced by this ganja due to her unique profile of terpenes and cannabinoids can effectively drive away stress, low mood, anxiety and depression by exerting a mood-stabilizing influence over tokers. This can also be a particular benefit for those with mood disorders such as bipolar disorder, as it doesn’t come with the unwanted side effects that are often present in traditional over the counter prescriptions, but still boasts anxiolytic and antidepressant properties.
Growing Northern Lights #10 Feminized Seeds
As Northern Lights #10 Feminized is mostly Indica, she exhibits many classic Indica traits, such as a compact shape, chunky branches with dense, sticky colas, and sparse internodal spacing. She’s also resistant to most molds and pathogens and can stand strong through harsh weather conditions - all of which combine to make this herb a great strain for beginners with little to no experience cultivating cannabis.
The size of this strain can vary, with her height sometimes reaching only 80 centimeters, and then occasionally reaching up to a whopping 200 centimeters - that’s quite a variance, but indoor growing is still possible provided you have space for either outcome.
A controlled environment is key with Northern Lights #10 Fem, and temperatures should remain steady between 21° and 27°C for her to thrive, with Relative Humidity (RH) levels sitting squarely between 40% and 50% - an efficient ventilation system is essential.
We’d also recommend keeping an eye on and pruning any additional and unnecessary foliage, as this will prevent the build-up of moisture (which could lead to mold, resilient or not) and ensure that the plant’s nutrients are properly utilized.
If explosive growth and a bigger yield size is your aim, combine a hydroponics setup with a Sea of Green (SoG) technique. This will speed up the vegging process while boosting productivity, so that 6 to 8 weeks of flowering later, you’ll reap in a reward of up to 550 grams of frosty nugs per square meter.
If you’re truly dedicated to boosting your harvest, then opt for outdoor growing. Northern Lights #10 loves to bask in a warm and sunny climate (like most of us) and in optimal conditions can be harvested in early October for a yield of 500 grams of buds per plant.
With ten sibling strains to live up to, the bar was high right from the beginning for Northern Lights #10 Feminized, and yet she meets every target and requirement you’d want of a weed with such illustrious heritage.
Enticing with notes of musk and pine, this herb's blissful, euphoric high comes with the added bonus of being a potent medicinal strain, capable or alleviating both mental and physical symptoms from a variety of maladies.
As a strain for cultivation, Northern Lights #10 Fem provides copious yields and is a pleasure to grow, since she’s hardy, compact and resilient by nature. Already feminized for your convenience, all that’s required of you as a grower is some TLC, some pruning and a good environment, and this herb will reward you handsomely, whether you’re a newbie or an experienced grower.
