Let's talk about Northern Lights!

My experience not growing, but simply getting high is that it is supposed to be indica, but has a sativa high.

I must try it again, such a clear, almost shroom-like high.

And a nice hazy indica taste... never grown it but heard good things from back in day. Is it still as reliable?

I have always experienced Northern Lights as an indica, both in growth and effect. From NL to NL#5, always a potent indica.

I'm not sure you were smoking pure NL or a hybrid, but clear and schroom like is certainly not how I would describe NL. More like red eyed couch pilot.

Great strain if you can find it these days.

NL is a solid body high... I get nice head melty kind of high, but the majority is all physical couch lock. I have an NL hybrid with more of a head high than pure NL and she still knocks me out..

On the other hand, I have phound phenos that were definately leaning to a tall leggy nld side, and their highs were definately more in the head but still had a major lethargic effect, and the head was definately not clear and soaring, more like strong and racy/speedy, so, I can see where op is coming from... Should also be noted any seeds I personally grew were simply named Northern Lights, never getting into detail about which NL, so Im assumimg its NL5, or some NL(?)xNL(?) hybrid..

so many experiences on this classic
mine was a #5 from seed, a slow ripener which is a little off from the classic description
but it had both effects
the beginning was like being strapped to a solid fuel booster, very strong head rush
but after a half hour, a sweet and long lasting indica feel, the head rush was a little too strong for comfort imho

NL #5 is said to be east Indian Afghan x thai while the rest are suppose to be pure indica or indica dominant hybrids most likely with the same mother with different males equals #1 #2 #5 etc. Depending on witch line you run you could find deep berry flavors, to very light smelling plants . Said to be One of the first plants created for indoor grows for the maximum yield . All talk from different forums and such all he or she said nothing proven by any means -peace

We grew NL #5 that smelled of coffee. It was an east coast line called the Mark V. Or Mark 5. It was a NL selection from seed in the late 80's.

There were several different phenos back then in our seed line. Flavors ranged from coffee to nutty to old school funk kind bud. Never once found berry flavors. The coffee line was the green phenos and all other flavors were purple plants.

These seeds came from Toronto in the mid 80's.

Short plant, 2-2-5 feet tall, very little stretch, robust branches, hollow stems, heavey feeder, Christmas tree like habit, rock solid nugs. Very little smell in flower unless disturbed. Final product was dark green nuggets that looked to be covered in yellow sugar like the wife uses on Christmas cookies.

Last time I saw anything close was Florida 2006 in Ft. Lauderdale. Coconut creek to be exact.

Someone out there has it I'm sure. Hopefully legalization will allow clones to reveal themselves and be spread far and wide.

Maybe Ill do a grow diary.

I am currently running my two favorites from the past.

A BCSC NL5 from 95 or 96 I selfed in 2004. This plant would be an s1 from my favorite plant out of years of controlled pollination. Took over 50 beans to get one to crack.

The other a s1 seed found and made s2'a from 2007ish OG squared from cornertone research disp. in Eagle Rock CA.

Both have super potential.

Back to the Nl5, no mistaking its old school smell. takes me straight back to the late eighties to mid 90's. I had my version so stable all seeds looked like clones of each other.
