As well known as its namesake, Northern Lights (with a handful of prestigious awards under its belt) marijuana is arguably one of the most famous strains the cannabis world has ever seen. This pure indica is full of light, lauded for its resinous buds and resilience.
Word around town is that this flashy strain was first germinated in Seattle, Washington, though it’s origins are also traced to Holland in the 1980s. Itself a hybrid, descended of indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains, Northern Lights often shares parentage with new breeds like popular Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze.
The Original Harvest Northern Lights marijuana seeds sit at the higher end of the cannabinoid spectrum with 22% THC, smoke Northern Lights and get a full-body relaxation, what we in the community like to call a “couch lock”, and often, a dreamy euphoria that allows for serious pain relief, rest, and relaxation (which may explain why so many people commonly refer to it as a “two hit and quit” strain). Medically, turn to this strain if you’re suffering from conditions like chronic pain, depression, and stress or even loss of appetite from anorexia or medical treatments like chemotherapy.
A hint at where its name was derived, Northern Lights buds will sometimes pop with beautiful purple hues, and a thick coating of cannabinoid-rich resin gives the plant a snow-capped appearance.
Breeders love Northern Lights, not only for its genetics, but because it is one of the fastest flowering strains around, needing only an average of about 47 days spent in the . Bare in mind, this strain will usually reach a height of about four feet (though it can get taller outdoors), it is shorter than most indica breeds. The bushy shape and wide, dark green leaves more than make up for its shorter stature. And while you could successfully cultivate these seeds outdoors if the climate is warm, but to have complete control, set it up with hydroponics and take advantage of the Sea of Green or Screen of Green methods to maximize small gardening.

I have a deep love for this strain, and it’s various forms! I have grown all kinds of northern lights strains over the years, but Pacific stocks my favorite seeds and yields the best results. Best buy I’ve had in a long time. Never seen seeds germinate this eagerly….and grow so fast! Loving the auto-flowering option cause they’re easier to care for and require less maintenance overall!

I am really happy with how fast this strain grew, just 60 days to get a great harvest. The high is euphoric and relaxing, really good if you need to de-stress after a long day. I enjoyed the earthy and pine flavors, with a hint of sweetness to it as well. Overall, a great strain that I would recommend.

Lights be shining in my brain. Makes me feel insane. I love the bright colors and the wild wild flavors. Been a fun time getting to grow my own pot. Looks like a giant Christmas tree in the back, especially with all the powerful colors.

I like northern lights. It’s good for my anxiety and stress. I don’t consider myself a grower, but auto seeds make it easy enough, though one of them didn’t germinate. Either way, it’s worked pretty well, and the yield was pretty big!

Mmm let the good times flow! Got this weed online and had it shipped to my apartment. It showed up within a matter of days! Best looking stuff you can get anywhere on the internet, and you don’t have to be a total master to get some good weed from your plants. Just keep them warm and well watered, and they will be happy 🙂

Got my northern lights seeds about a week after ordering online. So far they are looking great! I am growing them in disposable earth pots in my little backyard garden. Feeling pretty good about what I got going on. I usually smoke pot cause my body hurts and I have anxiety. But ultimately I will buy more next chance I get!

When I get baked, I am always reaching for the northern lights, cause this weed keeps me feeling energized and light, and also has a great smell that gets me thinking of the forest, it’s totally awesome. I got 5 seeds online, and they shipped right to my apartment here in Seattle where I can grow them right in my backyard cause it’s legal!!!

No more mediocre weed for me, this stuff is all kinds of heavyyyyy. I am a home gardener. This isn’t the only thing I grow in my garden. I wasn’t stoned the first time I smoked it, so I took like three more hits and passed right out. My sleeping problems are toast.
Get 5 seeds 😉

The northern lights strains are very mellow and also very powerful, great for deep meditative introspection, creative writing, or music! It is truly an artist’s strain. Ordered online and had it shipped to my home in Oregon. It planted quite well, and it grew fairly quickly in this climate, it does NOT like very wet roots, so be sure to let it dry before watering again!

Been growing weed all my life. My favorite plant to grow. Gives me a lot of happiness during the summer, and it’s great smoking in front of the fire in fall. Not difficult to cultivate. Looks for sun so plant it somewhere sunny. Pretty affordable seeds, reliable, and discreet. Good job 😉

Northern lights gonna give it to ya. RIP DMX. I am always getting stoned and listening to hip hop. I really like the way this makes me feel inside . I mean, I usually suffer depression, but when I smoke this joint, I am very relaxed and pretty happy. I get baked and then just relax on my couch. Finally, I can let me stress and worries disappear!!

Got about 5 seeds to start out with, 4 of 5 germinate, dunno what happened to the 5th seed, but it’s a goner. That’s ok…get this stuff up and running, it has a HUGE growth spurt, looks amazing, smells fantastic. Finally get to harvest it after about 5 months. Very good buy, never lets me down.

This is some exciting weed cause it’s easy to grow and it gets you very high. I ordered some online and shipped it to my spot in LA and grew it on the porch cause everyone loves to do that here in these big pots the size of your torso lol. Came out nicely, very few problems and a nice sized yield at the end. Just remember to water!

Bought both Northern Lights Auto and Cream Caramel Auto. Only 1 of the 3 seeds of the Northern Lights germinated. Followed the recommended germination process, which is how I have germinated all my seeds over the last couple of years. It was the first time I’ve had seeds fail. I proceeded to germinate 3 Cream Caramel Auto seeds, and all are flourishing no problem! I’m about 4 weeks away from harvesting all 4 plants. The one Northern Lights plant is growing okay but smaller and not as many limbs as the Cream Caramel Autos. I will post the yields and other stats after all plants are dried and cured.

I was totally in awe of this strain….It was as tall as I am, nearly 6 feet! I love it’s deep green flower, speckled with a true rainbow of color…The weed smells like it’s from outta this world. Gives me a BIG nice body buzz. I am definitely gonna buy more seeds since I am running low and all this weed is growing!!!

I woke up this morning and had a terrible headache. I smoked a little of this weed and like magic it disappeared. Had nothing but good times growing the northern lights. Used to my favorite strain in college, and it’s even better now. I got nearly 10 oz of fresh marijuana, had it stored in tea tins and keep it in my closet. I am set on my weed for the year!
quityobs (verified owner) –
I was always a fan of this strain, used to buy it all the time, but now I am growing my own and I gotta say it’s pretty remarkable. Love the size and shape of this plant, it’s like as tall as me and makes for a great addition to your garden. I was seriously impressed by the yield too, much bigger than expected, and perfect for all those nights you just wanna relax!!

Northern lights….definitely one of my all-time favorites! Ordered it online and had it delivered in no time at all….it’s so easy to order from pacific, their selection is amazing, and NL is definitely top of my list every time! Got a FAT harvest…and I mean HUGE, way better than I could have imagined. Definitely a worthy buy and absolutely worth the effort!

Northern lights is just what the doctor ordered. This stuff is just what you need when times get tough and you need a mental staycation. Great for growing indoors, and produces a whole ton of weed for you to enjoy. Has the best flavor in town, and it makes your skin feel all tingly. You are totally gonna love it!!!

Treat yo self to this amazing cannabis concoction…Make a little garden bed in your backyard and plant these high-quality seeds in them. Ordering online is very easy and shipping is fast and reliable…you’ll be amazed at just how easy it is to grow marijuana in your own home…and when you harvest this pot…you’ll be happy how fresh and green it is!

If you like strong weed that gives you a head rush and keeps you feeling trippy all night long, then northern lights is for you! This is a wonderful indica leaning hybrid that is as surreal and trippy as it is relaxing. It can be a challenging grow, but definitely worth the effort cause you will get a substantial yield, better than expected. I love the earthy flavors and the powerful mind buzz that helps me write and paint!

I love the northern lights, they’re so beautiful and mysterious. When I smoke enough of this weed, I feel like I am hallucinating them on my bedroom ceiling lol! I can’t believe how easy this was. Ordering from PSB online was a breeze and the seeds shipped out within a week. The grow guide on this site helped me every step of the way, and I got some really impressive results. Can’t wait to buy more!

I have never actually seen the northern lights, but when I smoke this weed, it makes me feel like I am staring right at them! I ordered 3 seeds from Pacific and had them delivered to my place up here near Bellingham. Got a great little grow room set up and got to work right away. Fast delivery and even germination, and a heavy yield too. Great for smoking out on the back porch after the day is done, nice sweet flavor, just a few hits will do ya cause this stuff is strong!

If you’re not already excited about this strain, it’s time to get STOKED! I am new to weed, smoking and growing, and this did an incredible job taking care of itself. I am wicked excited to share with friends and family. They will definitely appreciate the gesture 🙂 If you are a fan of strains that make your mind feel all loopy, a little sleepy but also euphoric and uplifting. I am very excited to have this bright green dank nug in my life, and you will be too!!!

When I smoke this stuff I basically trip balls lol! I just lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling for hours, probably watching my ceiling fan go round and round lol! Fun to grow, easy to order, and really a fun side hobby if you’ve got the time. Good bud too, super fresh and sticky and dank. I mean like top-shelf stuff! Great buy!

This is a really trippy strain of MJ! I grew it in my backyard after ordering online with PSB. Wow, what an amazing plant, so tall and bushy and gives off a ton of smoking flower! It’s got these beautiful green and blue leaves, amazing for just staring at when you’re stoned! It’s a nice buzz, very trippy in the mind, gives me weird visions and also helps me relax!
Mose Hunter (verified owner) –
This is some powerful stuff! One hit and I am off my feet yo! Great grow, and super easy to do, even right in your backyard. It’s a wild looking plant with these sharp green leaves and powerful green nugs! It’s got a real sour smell and taste to it as well. It’ll intoxicate you in the best way possible, gives me a great head buzz and keeps me churning out creative ideas for hours on end. Excellent buy!

If you’re looking for a chill sesh with your bros, this is the weed to break out. Happy I decided to give growing a try. Got 4 of 5 seeds to germ, and grew them in my backyard. Nice yield, though a bit smaller than I was expecting. Love the fruity, earthy smell and taste, and the indica makes you very relaxed, even a little sleepy, so one or two hits is perfect for chilling out with friends!
Kinslee P. (verified owner) –
I mostly use mj to help with my symptoms of depression and anxiety and northern lights is an excellent strain for dealing with that! I grew it in my basement in a small grow space that I set up for this reason in particular. I got a nice yield of around 350 per plant and usually just smoke this in the evening after work, it’s a bit heavy on the indica side, so do expect to get a little sleepy after smoking. Very relaxing however and elevates my mood to a peaceful place.

I live near Seattle and this strain is legendary around my neighborhood. So of course when I saw it here I had to order me some. I just got a package of 5 — I usually try to grow a dozen at a time, but I had some seeds left over from my last order still. All 5 popped and gave me a pretty good yield! No complaints here and so far I think Pacific is a great place to buy seeds from.
Krissy E. (verified owner) –
This was the fastest order to harvest I’ve experienced. Got the seeds germinated as soon as they showed up, and after a brief vegetation state the flowering period was over in just under 50 days with some of the most phenomenal cannabis I’ve personally grown. Scrog worked quite nicely indoors to get a good yield. The high itself has me seeing stars on the couch, it’s blissfuly wonderful!
Alysa G. (verified owner) –
This pot is growing so bushy and wide that I’m very glad I could grow this outside where she could really stretch her wings. My friend said don’t worry if Northern Lights doesn’t grow tall, it grows wide and turns out he was right on the money. I looked forever for where to buy cannabis seeds from and Pacific Seeds was very good, their customer service especially was friendly and professional. Also the germination guarantee means there’s almost no risk buying seeds online from PSB. Can’t wait to light up Northern Lights, only a few more weeks to go until it’s harvest time.
Brett H. (verified owner) –
Have been growing weed in my basement for many years. I live up in Seattle, so I was really happy to come across this strain as a growing possibility! I had really strong results, with an almost 350 G harvest. I usually only smoke in the evenings because it helps me sleep and helps from the pain from my job. I guess I’m more of an indica guy in general. The trichomes were also quite impressive, with deep purple hues and greens just like the northern lights! A good buy!!
Doug J. (verified owner) –
If I could give this 10 stars I would! This is such a good strain. I think I got one of my best harvests ever with these seeds and I’m looking forward to ordering and growing them again. Everything went perfectly. Fast germinating and fast growing. Pacific really takes care of their customers and I’ve really appreciated their fast and friendly service. Always get my seeds on time. Great place to order seeds from!

Got some textbook buds from these seeds. The whole grow was textbook. Seeds germinated fast. Plants grew up to be some lovely looking ladies that flourished with a little TLC. Couldn’t believe how fast the flowering went. Before I knew it was time to pick. SCROG definitely helped on the indoor grow. Great experience ordering online and will do it again. The strain totally rocks! Good medical strain that will ease all your pains and make your troubles go away.

How much do I love Northern Lights? Let me count the ways … 1. The pain relief from this strain is no joke. I only need one big toke and the pain in my arms and back fades away, like so many unruly fires. 2. What a pretty plant. Mine were a beautiful purple color with a thick coat of resin that made the buds shine. Wish I could wear it as a necklace! 3. Easy peasy growing. My Northern Lights seeds only took 42 days to flower. I was smoking the mj and relaxing before I knew it. Good experience with PSB and a great buy, color me a happy and satisfied customer.

I have an injury that is requiring me to stay sedentary for the next few months, which I find to be really tough. I’m normally a busy body that likes to be up and getting things done. I needed something make me sit my ass down and do nothing for a while so I could recover. Northern Lights was the ticket! Not only did my body melt into my couch, but I also felt some much needed relief from pain and anxiety over this whole thing. I decided to order it months ago because it was a name I recognized and figured a popular strain would be worth growing, and ended up feeling glad that I had. It’s been getting me through a rough period of recovery while I let my bones heal. Thanks Pacific!
Lance D. (verified owner) –
My first time growing Northern Lights turned out very well. I really love that this mj has a short flowering period – only 43 days until sweet northern was ready to be harvested. Turned out real bushy, too, so I’ll give it even more room next time. Pacific is where to buy good cannabis seeds, never been disappointed with their product.

Take off for the Great White North! This bud will light you up for sure. I’ve grown two cannabis strains: a sativa dominant hybrid and this one. They’re like night and day. With this weed there’s a sense of deep relaxation, both mental and physical. My wife and I like to have a few tokes and then watch Netflix or Amazon Prime and just chiilllllll. For growing I used the Screen of Green method – you can read about it online. If you’re worried about whether you can grow marijuana at home, don’t be. You’ll love the results.

This weed has me seeing aurora borealis in my living room haha. High in THC for sure which makes for some excellent euphoria and relaxation on my couch while I kinda space out so it’s the best for the end of the day after I’ve been up and at it for a long time. Short as hell flowering time for a good yield in an indoor grow with sea of green. I’d recommend the autoflowering version for people who are just getting into growing since it takes less work.
Tomas J. (verified owner) –
Wow. I’m right now looking at buds as pretty as the Northern Lights themselves. I live in a cooler climate with less available sunlight, so I went for the auto-flowering variety this time, and I don’t know what I was waiting for. So easy to grow and the yield was spot on. I’ve been growing a long time, and just got used to having to manually shift my plants I guess. Now I get what all the hubbub is about. Autoflowering plants are friggin awesome.
Colleen S. (verified owner) –
WOW I am Amazed at how much I love this weed! I grew in my backyard and it got SUPER tall and bushy and beautiful and the it’s seriously magical stuff. I can’t tell if I like looking at it more or smoking it…probably smoking it LOL. So sweet and earthy, perfect for chilling out at the end of the day and really great for all you stressed out folks out there, myself included. PSB has amazing seeds, can’t wait to order more!

I live in Washington where weed is legal, but still, I don’t exactly want to advertise to all of my neighbors that I’m growing mj in my house. I guess that’s why I SUPER appreciate discreet and thoughtful labeling on my packages when I order seeds. Just wanted to say THANK YOU to Pacific for keeping everything on the down low for me. Even if you’re growing weed in your front yard, it’s still nice to have some discretion with your shipments. Thanks!
