Northern lights indica strain
Some strains are simply famous; Northern Lights (Afghanica), however, has reached legendary status.
If you are a regular cannabis user, there is a very high probability that you have tried either Northern Lights. Or one of the strain’s sister varieties, such as: Sour Diesel and Shiva Skunk, just to name a few. Northern Lights’ exact lineage and history are shrouded in mystery and might be forever lost.
The most dominant theory is that the strain originated in the Pacific Northwest with little fan fare. Then made its way to Holland where the two best phenotypes were cross (Northern Lights #5 x Northern Lights #2). The NL #5 has taken over the most important roll in the cross because NL #5 adds potency and reduces flowering time. NL #2 gives the strain the awsome taste and smell, and contributes to the overall vigor and strength of the high. Also NL #2 is a hardier plant with better resistance to mold and pests than other phenotypes.
