Some common phrases that I’ve heard are “The sun rises in the north”, “Moss grows on the north side of the trees”, and “Northern Lights is a legendary strain”. The directional rising of the sun doesn’t always rise at *true north*, and if you’re in the southern hemisphere then you’ll notice that the moss actually grows on the south side of the tree. So is the hype behind Northern lights just another misunderstood phrase? Smoking the ganja reveals the answer.
I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Northern Lights ever since I heard it mentioned in the popular show *The Office*, I’m talking 11 years of waiting here! So when Foster Buds brought in a visually majestic cut of Northern Lights, I jumped at the opportunity to personally meet this legendary strain.
The bud structure is heavenly, and it appears that all the nugs do favor a directionally linear disposition (longer nugs). Its radiant color is north of the color lime, and arrives at a made up color that I like to call “Frosty Key Lime Pie”. The aroma of Northern Lights is reminiscent of the scent that mint leaves, when it has been freshly treaded upon. The taste paints my palate with pine-cones and peppermint, with the subtle aftertaste of a soft parmesan.
The smoke quality of this flower can be described in one word: Elevated. Even though its consumption was facilitated in my bong, I felt like I was vaping this flower because of the smooth quality of the smoke. It feels as though a cloudy pillow has filled my lungs, while the exhalation delivers a deep sea dive into the ocean of bliss. Northern Lights delivers a daydream, I’m not talking about future thinking either where the stress of *what are all the things I have to do today* enter. I’m talking about REALLY daydreaming, where even the texture of your carpet becomes inspirational!
If you mental compass wavers as the seasons change, try smoking some Northern Lights. It will provide you with the space to calibrate your mental bearings, while also allowing your heart to follow the magnetic pull of positivity.
