This hybrid strain is a cross of two popular and historic strains – Northern Lights, an award winning, powerful variety with a long heritage, and Big Bud, one of the most popular varieties with growers during the 1980s and 1990s thanks to its impressively high yield.
This strain is especially recommended for indoor cultivation since it only grows to a limited height of around 100 - 120cm and features a dense bud growth. As you might expect from its impressive parentage, this hybrid also produces a high yield, with an indoor production of 500-600 gr/m2 and an impressive yield of 1200 gr/plant when cultivated outside. When grown indoors, it flowers within just 55 to 60 days, and when grown outside its harvesting time is in September. Thanks to its high resistance to diseases and mildew, this is an easy variety to grow, contributing to its popularity.
This strain is a 100% indica, with high levels of THC (a content of 18%) together with 5% levels of CBD. It boasts a complex flavor, combining cheese, spicy and herbal flavors together with woody notes for an interesting aroma and taste. The effect of this strain is sedative, narcotic and calming, making it ideal for medicinal use. Its high CBD content also means that it could potentially be useful for patients who need to treat a wide range of symtoms, and it is known to be particularly effective when used in the treatment of pain and insomnia.
