A stout, disease and mold-resistant plant with dark green, broad leaves, it seems apparent that Northern Lights is Afghani in origin. There are several varieties of Northern Lights that worked their way into breeding stock for Sensi Seeds. Northern Lights #1 is rare these days and was the taller and frostier selection with a fresh scent; Northern Lights #2 is more stout, piney-smelling, and very mite-resistant; Northern Lights #5 is the most popular, potent, and vigorous one; and Northern Lights #9 is a super-rare cut once held by Nevil Schoenmaker that was used to breed and then disappeared.
With its longstanding history and popularity, Northern Lights is in high-demand in most legal cannabis markets. Since it can be hard to come by at the dispensary, many home growers enjoy cultivating Northern Lights. Selecting the right marijuana seeds is important when cultivating Northern Lights and growers who want consistent results should look for feminized Northern Lights seeds to ensure a reliable harvest.

Grows well in hydro or soil, staying rather short and forming a single strong cola. Great for SOG applications, it's also a low odor plant that's easy to grow for beginners thanks to its stature and disease/pest-resistance.
