The Northern Lights is said to be a pure indica strain with qualities like resinous buds, fast flowering features, and offering resilience during growth. The descendant of strains like the Afghani and Thai Landrace , the Northern Lights has itself given rise to hybrids like that of the Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. The crystal-coated purple buds of the plant have a somewhat pungent sweet and spicy aroma. The psychoactive effects of the bud happen to affect both the mind and body of the user. The user experiences relaxed body muscles along with a euphoric frame of mind. The flowering time of this particular species is around 45 to 50 days.
