Northern Lights #5 Seeds
Whether you’re new to cannabis or an experienced smoker, it’s almost impossible that you haven’t tried some variation of Northern Lights. Although said to originate in the United States during the 1970s, Northern Lights made its way to Amsterdam’s first seed bank in 1985. The American genetics were bred with a Thai sativa and backcrossed to stability. Northern Lights #5 was said to be the strongest of the new crosses and eventually took over as the most widespread successor in the lineage. NL#5 is the perfect choice for cannabis lovers searching for the quintessential classic indica strain.
Northern Lights #5 is a stunning strain to see. The nuggets are dark green with purple hues and orange hairs. The buds are sticky, dense, but still springy and delicate. Northern Lights has a minimal amount of leaf on the buds. Long sections between the calyxes and stems make this a quick and effortless strain to trim.
Flavors & Aroma
NL#5 has the classic skunky Amsterdam smell with tropical orange and grape juice flavors. The smoke tastes like piney juniper and evergreen with a smooth hash and buttery kush aftertaste.
Northern Lights is 90% indica with a THC content of 24% with > 1% of CBD. A thick and dreamy body buzz gradually melts away all pain and anxiety. The high is happy, lighthearted, and dissolves into laughter. Chronic pain and inflammation, as well as stomach issues like acid reflux and IBS, seem to be relieved by NL#5. Favored for night time use, Northern Lights is relaxing without leaving you stunned or brain dead feeling.
Growing Northern Lights #5 Seeds
NL#5 is stable and easy to grow with uniform growth and short flowering time. Indoor plants finish flowering within 8 weeks although, that time can be shortened when growing in a hydro setup. 14-18oz/m2 is the standard indoor yield. Outdoors, it will pull off a harvest of 18oz/plant. Outdoor plants grow vigorously and have a beautiful amber coating of resin. Northern Lights thrives in a warm Mediterranean climate with organic nutrients.

yep back in the day...wow what a great smell
Got these soon after shipping, so nice to have a seed bank here in the States. Easy germination, and the plants are doing very well. Definitely an indoor strain, ideal for low ceiling height grow areas. Would recommend Seed King without reservation.
This is our first time growing cannabis. After some research, I decided to try this one. I use cannabis for sleep, ptsd, and anxiety. I make a tincture of cannabis, but I would like to save some money, by growing my own. I soaked the seeds for 24 hours in pure, filtered water. I used Miracle Gro seed starter potting mix , in clear plastic cups, under a grow light with a heating pad beneath. All the seeds broke through the soil, within 6 days. Within a month, I transferred them into 1 gal. containers, filled with Ocean Forest potting soil, and Happy Frog; and they went crazy !!!! After another 3 weeks, they had to be transplanted into 5 gal. containers. I only use purified water. You can see for yourselves, how they are doing. I am very happy with the results so far. Thank You !!!!
All five seeds germinated and are coming along nicely. Grew this strain outdoors in the nineties. So happy this strain was still available . Seed King cares about customers, I highly recomend . Thanks Seed King.
Seeds popped quick in the paper towel and grew fast since. I'm currently week 3 in flower. Short and stalky as described. Perfect for a short closet grow. Using Remo Nutrients watering every day or 2. 1000W HPS in a 6" Cool Tube.
So far the seeds are great. Just start the process. Had a 2” taproot after 3 days in the paper towel.
Couldn’t be happier with what I received. Fast discreet and great product!
Great seed but one started really slow 3 of the 4 are 18” tall and one is only 3” but growing better day to day.
