Northern Lights Seeds – The History Behind This Legendary Strain and the Qualities That Make It One of a Kind
Like the well-known natural phenomenon bearing the same name – a spectacular, awe-inspiring result of the collision between two types of particles – Northern Lights seeds are the result of the crossing of two extraordinary NL phenotypes: one that gives this legendary hybrid its resistance to pests and mold and its unmistakable, powerful and very pleasant taste, smell and high, and one that gives the plant its potency and short flowering times. Being one of the first strains to be successfully grown indoors and also one of the quickest growing strains, its genetic material has been used to develop numerous other famous strains, making Northern Lights what it is today: one of the most influential cannabis strains ever.
The History of the Strain
Very little is known about how this Indica-dominant hybrid (about 95% Indica and 5% Sativa) was first created, but, according to the most widely circulated story, eleven Northern Lights hybrids were developed in the Pacific Northwest from landrace strains that originated from Central and Southeast Asia and then spread to the Netherlands, where the strain received its final composition from two phenotypes, NL2 and NL5.
The Quality that Make Northern Lights Seeds So Extraordinary
The nug looks, smells and tastes great. The bud is dense and of a vivid green color, and the flavor is fresh and citrusy, as you anticipate when you look at the bud. The high it gives lasts for about 2-3 hours and it is one of relaxation, comfort and euphoria – the quality that has made it one of the strains that are most effectively used for ameliorating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, as well as insomnia.
Easy growing, both indoors and outdoors (in warm climate areas, of course), high yield, and short flowering times are also among the most important features of the plant, making Northern Lights seeds among the most sought-after strains today.
Feminized marijuana seeds are seeds that solely turn out feminine marijuana plants. However, there are some misconceptions regarding marijuana, feminized marijuana seeds and hermaphrodites (plants that show intersexuality) that ought to be taken into consideration. Not like a lot of complicated organisms, marijuana isn’t firmly one sex or the opposite. It’s an awfully uncommon plant that it’s both an annual plant which is dioeciously (producing separate male and feminine flowers on completely different plants), however each marijuana plant has the flexibility to supply flowers of the other sex in some situations.
Feminized seed are developed in such a way that they ensure that all of the plants grown are completely female as opposed to male/female plants that regular “non-feminized” seeds will produce.
Typically, breeders will mate two female plants together which will result in only female offspring (seeds). This is accomplished by using gibberellic acid or colloidal silver which will force the female plants to produce “female pollen sacs”.
Now, if you wanted to set up your own specific cannabis breeding program you would definitely need male plants. However, you would end up throwing away half of your stock as unusable… which can be a frustrating waste of time and effort for people who just want to grow their own supply of buds.
When you start growing with high quality feminized seeds from a reputable supplier line Niagara Seed Bank, you can stop worrying about which gender your plants will be, and have faith in the fact that every last one of your plants is going to make you some fantastic female buds!
Growers don’t typically like the presence of many male plants in their crops. This is mostly because male plants produce far less THC as compared to the female variety. Needless to say, more THC means that you will get more buzz from your buds.
Feminized seeds have been and will continue to be the best choice for growers given the fact that they allow for efficient use of space, maximum bud yield, and the best return on investment.
So, what is the catch with using female marijuana seeds? It all depends on where you are getting them from. A poor-quality source will supply seeds that can turn into mixed gender plants.
