Northern Lights, formerly known as CI #5 F1, is an award winning Indica dominant strain. This strain is well received by growers, medical patients, and recreational consumers and may be one of the most popular Indica strains of all time. The strain is readily available in dispensaries throughout the West Coast and Colorado. Known by many as a two hit and quit strain, Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode. The desire to sit on the couch and listen to the call of munchies may be overwhelming to novice users even in lower doses.
Northern Lights Appearance & Taste
Northern Light’s exact lineage and history are obscured in mystery but it is generally believed to be a mix of two landrace building block strains – Thai and Afghani. We do know that the strain was perfected in Holland and has only begun to make its way to America in more recent years. This strain has a sweet, earthy flavor with hints of citrus. Northern Lights is most popular on the West Coast and in Colorado, but it’s a favorite pretty much everywhere else marijuana can be found.
Northern Lights Effects
Accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Some experienced users are reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well. The average negative culprits persist – dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, paranoia and anxiety in higher doses.
Like most of its Indica-based ancestors and descendants, Northern Lights is highly recommended for evening use and insomnia. It is one of the purest Indica strains around (95 pct. Indica, 5 pct. Sativa) which make it a highly sedative strain. It is also often chosen to relieve the effects of stress and anxiety. Many choose it for the heavy body high to weaken their chains of chronic pain as well. And the strong appetite inducing effects are used to help those suffering from such eating disorders as anorexia.

Final Thoughts on Northern Lights
A couple hits is all it takes for most patient’s seeking this strain’s powerful body effects, an upbeat mix of euphoria and physical relaxation. CBD levels are less clear, but they certainly aren’t high enough to recommend this as a treatment for seizures or other conditions that respond to CBD. Even so, Northern Lights is a highly useful medical strain, effective at treating anxiety, pain, and insomnia, as well as lack of appetite. Cottonmouth is common, as are red eyes, while other negative effects are much more limited.
