Northern Lights was first bred in Seattle, Washington and she was based on a Californian strain. Afghani Indica, Hindu Kush and a Thai were used to form Northern Light.
She is an almost pure Indica race (90%) of Afghani heritage and contains a high CBD and THC level. We then crossed this amazing Northern Light with a massive budding OG Kush to create our Northern Lights Special. Over 16 generations we stabilized the NL Special resulting in very homogenous plants, neigh on identical. Even when cloned. And she’s virtually stressproof. Then with a little side experiment we, accidentally, came across this beast of a lady we now call the Mega Power Plant. We nicknamed her the Mega. With our NL Special as a mother and a highly resinous Power Plant as a father, we believe we have created the ultimate indica dominant indoor strain.
The result is a compact plant with long, candleshaped buds which look like they suffer from frostbite and will make you sing: ‘I am dreaming of a white Christmas’. The buds are finely structured and rockhard covered in finely grained resin. She has those characteristical wide-fingered Indica leaves and a darkgreen color. Stalks can be super red, which is absolutely common for this strain and definitely not a nutrient problem. Pregrow for only 2 to 3 weeks and you will end with a plant of medium stature; between 80 cm and a 1 metre. With very few leaves, this plant has a perfect flower to leaf ratio and is easy to manicure. She is quite resistant to diseases and parasites. The Mega preflowers quickly. She is a very forgiving plant when it comes to; heat problems, fertilizing problems and insufficient water.
We have used our Northern Light Special to create many a new variety, because of her stability, yield and impressive resin production. By crossing Northern Light Special with a Power Plant we have created an ideal strain for the beginner. The aroma is not too overpowering, so perfect to grow discretely. Of all our strains our Northern Lights special has recorded the highest THC percentage and with her Mega offspring it is no different, so expect high levels of THC.
The aroma shows through her typical Kush origins; earthy sweet with a hint of Nepalese temple balls. She smells of wonderful Nepalese black Hasj with a touch of sweet Kush. Northern Lights Special has a superb licorice flavor with a slight diesel undertone. She is a narcotic stoner and gives you an all-over stoned sensation. Couchlock stoned. Thanks to her high THC level she is the perfect painkiller. Medicinal value: chronic pain, muscle spasms, stress, back pain, muscular pain and loss of apetite.
