Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time—a pure indica that has given rise to countless famous hybrids.
Strain type: Indica
Parent strains: Afghani, Thai
Backstory: Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds that has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Rumor has it that Northern Lights first sprouted near Seattle, Washington, but was propagated out of Holland after 1985 at what is now Sensi Seeds. Pungently sweet, spicy aromas radiate from the crystal-coated buds, which sometimes reveal themselves in hues of purple. Northern Lights’ psychoactive effects relax the muscles and pacify the mind in dreamy euphoria.
Why we love it: It’s a storied Pacific Northwest transplant blanketed in starry, crystal-tipped trichomes.
