Northern Light Special
Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: Northern Light Special incorporates not only an out-of-this-world flavor combination but a pretty powerful effect that last for well over an hour.
Northern Light Special was bred by one of the craftiest master growers around, known commonly as KC Brains. This dutch breeder meticulously calculated this backcross 3 times, until some of the best genetics around were reached. The buds, which are dark-green and covered in amber-colored trichromes give off a pleasant skunky and fruity aroma. Intense and fresh flavors of fruit, dank and flowers are the staple of this Northern Lights variety.
While itís recommended to grow this strain indoors, it can be successfully cultivated in Mother Nature. Like most Northern Lights crosses, this strain is recommended for beginning growers and up. Most who grow Northern Light Special do it in a Sea of Green environment, since they grow short (usually no more than 28Ē tall) and very compact, producing fat, dense buds. They also display a 7 - 8 week flowering period with the average harvest being ready around 53 days. Those who wait until the full 56 days however, will notice nearly 20% more bud growth during the final 3 days to a week it can initially be ready.
This strain first gained popularity in the Netherlands, where it was originally bred, but is now famous worldwide. Northern Lights varieties have long been hailed as top-notch, quality cannabis when grown properly. Look for eighths of this bud to range from $50 to $60 for top-shelf. As always though, itís better just to grow it if you can and save money in the long-run.
