When it comes to high-THC content, Northern Lights is about as good as it gets. It has a relaxing effect that is great for recreational purposes. Be careful, though—one hit too many can take you from a euphoric, chill high to complete couchlock.
Hitting the Northern Lights
With little CBD and a high concentration of THC, it’s not hard to figure out that this strain can lead to a really intense high. You should probably sit (or lie) down the first time you smoke or vape it. Northern Lights is virtually a pure indica (95%), and it’s best for nighttime when you’re relaxing, watching Netflix, or getting ready for bed. Get comfy in bed turn on your favorite show or start reading your favorite book—you’ll find yourself drifting off in no time. Just make sure you’ve got a glass of water next to you in case the cotton-mouth sets in.
Enjoying the Show
Northern Lights is so good for TV binges and nights reserved for relaxed self-care because it can bring on a feeling of total chill and contentment. Although you may get a twinge of creative energy, it’s not known for waking up your most active self or inspiring you to do or make something (so skip this strain if your to-do list is getting long).
If you find yourself needing to take a break from the overwhelming nature of life, this strong indica is a great option. It’ll help you to shut your brain off and either allow you to just enjoy a few hours of inactivity or go right to sleep. We all need that sometimes, and Northern Lights provides it with just a few puffs.
A Dose of the Munchies
If you’re just having one of those days where nothing seems like it’ll taste good, Northern Lights can be a great option to help you get something in your belly. Though if you’re more interested in cutting down on your calories, this is probably not the strain for you. Not only does it make you more likely to raid the pantry, but you’ll also find it hard to stop once you start.
If you do smoke Northern Lights to make eating easier or more enjoyable, make sure that if you smoke right before dinner when you’re not planning on being particularly productive afterward. Once you take a few hits, you’ll probably be clouded with a little bit of indica haze for the rest of the night, making you not particularly productive or astute.
Northern Lights is one of those strains people first think of when they think “indica.” It helps you sleep, turns off your brain for a bit, and gives you some pretty hefty munchies. Just keep in mind that it’s a strong one, and big crowds, especially as a novice, is probably not the best venue. Reserve this strain for nights when you’re ready to relax by yourself or with a few close friends.
