Northern Lights Regular is a multi-award winning strain, and for good reason. The 90% indica plants are easy to grow both indoors and outside, and are compact and fast-flowering. Growers can expect plenty of fat, glistening buds, and big yields too. The scent is pleasantly aromatic; earthy, rich and with a hint of honey. The high is also formidable, and is powerfully relaxing for the body and the mind.
Growth pattern of Northern Lights Regular
Northern Lights Regular cannabis seeds are 90% indica and 10% sativa. The multi-award-winning strain is thought to have originated in the States, before being taken to The Netherlands. There, Sensi Seeds developed it into the variety that it is today, enhancing its Afghani and Thai genetics.
The seeds are regular, so growers will be able to generate both female and male plants from the pack. This is a good option for those who want to produce seeds of their own, or who want to experiment with cross-breeding. The plants have a rapid flowering time of just 45 to 50 days, which means that growers can enjoy a fairly speedy harvest.
As with many indica-dominant strains, Northern Lights Regular is compact, with plants remaining fairly small both indoors and outdoors. When grown inside, the plants’ height is normally limited to around 80 to 130 cm. Outside, they may grow taller, but probably no higher than 150 to 200 cm.
The plants are sturdy and squat in appearance, with multiple branches and leaves. This is fortunate, as they’re able to support the sizeable, resinous buds. These buds usually result in a big yield. Growers cultivating Northern Lights Regular inside can expect to generate about 500 grams per square metre. As for plants grown outdoors in the right conditions? Some growers have reported harvesting as much as 1.5 kilos from a single plant!
Northern Lights Regular needs plenty of sunlight and warmth to reach its full potential. As such, the plants need to be grown in a country that benefits from long, hot summers. The Mediterranean is the ideal sort of location for this strain. Alternatively, the plants can be grown indoors all year round, anywhere in the world.
More experienced growers claim that the lollipopping and supercropping training methods are effective with this strain, and boost the harvests even higher.
Effect, taste, and smell of Northern Lights Regular
Northern Lights Regular is 90% indica, and its genetics come through clearly in the resulting high. Users report an intense, total-body stone with this strain, which relaxes the muscles and calms the mind.
The scent is also typically indica in nature; pungent, deep and earthy. However, there’s a hint of honey and herb to the smell too, which becomes more noticeable as the buds reach harvest-time.
The plants don’t usually produce an overpowering scent while growing, which is useful for those who want to cultivate them discreetly. Upon consumption, users can anticipate a rich, aromatic flavour, with the notes of sweetness coming through fairly strongly.
