Sensi Seeds - Northern Lights

Northern Lights is one of three fundamental breeding strains that have changed the face of global cannabis culture over the last three decades. Apart from Skunk #1 and Haze, no variety comes close to matching Northern Lights’ influence on the world of weed. Whether you’re a smoker, a grower or a breeder, it's more than likely this strain has had a direct effect on your understanding of ganja. Virtually every cannabis enthusiast has, at the very least, had their day brightened by a fat bud of Northern Lights or one of her hybrid descendants. As far back as the Eighties, Northern Lights was setting the standard by which other Indicas are still judged and she remains one of the most trusted names and sought-after varieties in modern cannabis culture. For many years, Northern Lights dominated the various harvest festivals, winning cup after cup, leading to a more than one request that she be retired from competition in order to allow other strains a shot at the title.

Through years of selection and back-breeding between stellar examples of the three original Northern Lights variants, Sensi Seeds has adapted this picture-perfect Afghanica genotype for optimum indoor performance, making the world’s most powerful pure Indica accessible to every grower.

Northern Lights is compact, fast and very dense, capable of producing several generous, trouble-free crops per year from seed or clone. Her frosted buds possess a honey-musk aroma blended with an earthy Afghani undertone and a hint of juniper — highly enticing when dried and smoked, yet remarkably understated when growing and flowering. Low odour and easy cultivation combined with big yields and exceptional resin production make Northern Lights the first choice in Indica - for both connoisseur quality and commercial quantity.

um ein bischen retro-gefühl zu haben,habe ich es mal mit der nl von sensi probiert.kenne den strain noch von früher,als es noch keine femi-seeds gab.diesmal also die rein weibliche version..ich hatte 15 fem-seeds,man kann also ganz gute vergleiche anstellen,was pheno typen entspricht.zwei drittel der pflanzen entwickeln einen typus mit längeren seitenästen und grösseren internodien.die buds haben hier eine charakteristische form die an eine knoblauchzehe(garlic-bud)errinnert.der geruch ist süss-fruchtig.die blattform eher schmal.der zweite typus ist viel gedrungener,viel kürzere seitenäste.die blattform ist breit,die buds extrem harzig.der geruch ist wirklich wacholder-beer artig,wie in der produktbeschreibung angegeben.es gibt hier noch einen untertyp mit oben sehr runder top-cola,der eher erdig riecht.ich würde nl auf jeden fall 3 wochen vegetatives wachstum gebe(erste woche 400,dann 600w)die endhöhe ist dann c.70-75cm.die blüte dauerte bei beiden phenos 8-9 wochen,also länger als angegeben,kennt man so von sensi nicht..ich hätte mir in dieser preis kategorie etwas mehr genetische stabilität gewünscht,nämlich nur den "wacholder-pheno".wobei der garlic-bud auch gut ist und gut trägt.der wacholder kann mit spitzen -indicas(sensi star oder white russian)mit halten..ich würd der sorte insgesamt aber noch ne gute 2 geben..

Excellent indica strain.
Grows in short, strong bushes. Doesn’t need a lot of attention and is resistant to temperature changes. Hard buds with size a less bit than average and lots of resin. Very limited smell during flowering. Ideal for beginners.
Unique and characteristic smell after curing with a little bit more discreet taste ; melts spice and flowers with a noticeable skunky side.
Very short high period (20 to 30 minutes), very progressive and anesthetic, followed by an intense stone effect for at least one hour more. Very strong, physical and quick-ass medication.
A must-have for every Afghani strain lover !

kenne die sensi northernl. variante nur in unfeminisierter form von früher(gute 12 jahre her)damals schon ne top sorte.kurze extrem einheitliche plants ohne grosse verzweigungen.sehr klebrig,heftiger indica turn..als samen pflanze sehr gut,als steckling noch besser.eine der besten mostly indicas die ich je kennen lernte.weiss allerdings nicht,wie die genetic heute,aktuell ist.(siehe beschreibung N.L5#haze)
