Spliff Seeds - Northern Special

Aka: Northern Light Special

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 12 generations we stabilized her resulting in very homogenous plants, neigh on identical. Even when cloned. And virtually stressproof.

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 is superstable, even as a clone. She has those characteristical wide-fingered Indica leaves and has 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. Northern Light 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. She is 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.

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.

Northern lights de spliff me sorprendio por la produccion de resina en sus cogollos. En mi experiencia personal, no pude sacar el maximo probecho de esta planta al igual que con la crystal, por no haberles dado buenas condiciones de cultivo ( por problemas ambientales, tecnicos y errores personales ).

Asi y todo, la northern lights de spliff me "recompenso" por mucho mas de lo que yo merecia. La produccion fueron unos 15 gramos( secos y listos para fumar ) a los que no me atrevo a llamar " secos " ya que luego del secado y el curado, estas flores seguian siendo muy pegajosas. Repito nuevamente que la produccion de resina me dejo anonadado, El sabor tenia tintes de aceites y maderas, se sentia mucho el sabor a hash.

Este año tengo creciendo una northern ya con 2 meses de vegetativo, Muy sana y en optimas condiciones, por lo cual prometo volverme a pasar para darles un buen review sobre el maximo potencial de esta hermosa planta pronto.

Por ahora como conclusion: Recomiendo esta planta sea tanto para principiantes como para experimentados. Sobre todo a los amantes del hashis o el aceite cannabico.
