Kick Back into Bliss & Euphoria
Since Northern Lights Feminized is highly-regarded and has been awarded many times over, you’d expect her to have an illustrious heritage - and you wouldn’t be wrong. Though not 100% certain, most in the cannabis community agree that this herb's genetics can be traced back to two prominent landrace strains, since she clearly takes her blissful, relaxing effects from Afghani (alongside her excellent growth traits) and her euphoric buzz from her Sativa-side, where Thai comes into play.
A hit with recreational and medicinal users, Northern Lights is full of sweet pine scents and spicy flavors, delighting the taste buds before she begins to delight the mind with her stimulating mood-enhancement. As her Indica-dominance takes the stage, your body will relax and unwind to the tune of calm tranquility before finally, her high sends you off to dreamland.
For those seeking relief from maladies via medicinal marijuana, Northern Lights Fem can free the mind of stress and depression, improve lack of appetite, resolve insomnia and provide great comfort for a variety of physiological issues including migraines and arthritis.
If you’re a beginner or an experienced grower, this is a strain that boasts hardiness to adverse weather conditions, resilience to pests and disease, and can recover from most mistakes. Throw in the fact that these seeds are feminized, and all you’re left with is the requirement to keep her trimmed and pruned - it’s hard to go wrong with Northern Lights, and her yields make her well worth the little effort that’s required.
Flavor and Fragrance of Northern Lights Feminized
Simultaneously energizing and soothing, the pungent aroma of Northern Lights Feminized is bursting with sweet notes of pine that develop into woody and mint-like flavors when combusted. When exhaling, these wood notes leave a lingering spicy-sweet flavor on the taste buds.
One of the most Indica-leaning strains available, Northern Lights Fem can knock even the most seasoned veteran smoker flat on their back. But not before flooding tokers with an uplifting and mood-enhancing euphoric buzz, drawing on her stimulating Sativa effects to create a cerebral high that’s warm and fuzzy all over.
Not overwhelming in the least, this is then followed by the manifestation of the Indica side, and Northern Lights will soothe deep-seated aches in the muscles and spread a sense of calm and relaxation from head to toe to send you into a blissful tranquility. In higher doses, this will certainly result in a knock-out punch, though in moderation it should develop only as a strong feeling of lethargy and laziness that will eventually have you drifting off to sleep.
The less fun adverse effects of this strain are at least fairly short-lived and common to most strains of cannabis - cottonmouth and dry bloodshot eyes, which can at least be alleviated with plenty of water.
Medical Uses of Northern Lights Feminized
Though highly valued on the 420 scene as a recreational herb, Northern Lights Fem is also well known for her medical benefits, as she can provide mental and physiological relief for a variety of maladies.
Due to the uplifted feeling induced by this weed, she’s regularly used to relieve stress, anxiety and depression, and can help those with disorders such as PTSD and bipolar disorder to relax and regain a sense of normality.

Unlikely to grow much taller than 5 feet, this medium-sized specimen is ideal for the average grow room or grow tent, and can endure changes in her environment even when grown outdoors, since she’s naturally resilient to disease and pests. Still, her foliage tends towards the bushier end, and will require some pruning and trimming if you’re to ensure she receives adequate ventilation and airflow.
A vigorous grower and heavy-yielder, Northern Lights Fem will flower in between 6 and 8 weeks, and harvests can be as much as 1.63 ounces per square foot.
For those who prefer to plant their crops out of doors, this vigorous production should remain. This lady will flower right up until the middle of September, and if well cared for should yield up to 21 ounces of nugs per plant.
For a strain to remain popular for decades at a time, there must be something really special about her - and Northern Lights Feminized has been around since this 70s, which truly speaks for itself.
