  Breeder's Description - 'Northern Light Special The Original'
Short, sweet and fast, this internationally influential strain has a smooth, spicey-to-peppery taste and an indica growing habit that assures nice yields and minimal headaches for trouble-free cultivation. Nice head effects with the warm glow of a relaxing body stone. A uniquely contemplative smoke for such an overwhelmingly indica-dominant hybrid.

This strain does not get enough credit, and I find people who grow this strain don't talk about it much, seems to be on the down low.

KC Brains Northern Lights Special was a very easy plant to grow, not picky about fertilizers, fast stretchy growth. Although I was expecting an Indica type plant, all 5 of the NLS I grew were Sativa in appearance - tall, with narrow long fingered leaves.

The NLS were flowered for 9 weeks. They d

Northern Lights Special was my first name-brand grow. I planted just two seeds, and one turned out male. Topped at the fourth node and started tying down branches to nails in the wall. Plant ended up about 2 feet high and 4 feet wide, taking up the entire closet. It really started stinking up the house the last weeks before harvest. Buds were dark green and literally glistening with crystals. Everyone definitely knows when you open up a jar of these nugs. With a yield of 5.5 ounces I think I came out pretty good, considering the quality. I'll have a lot to smoke for a long time. There is an issue of High Times that gave this strain "Strain of the month" and I can definitely see why.

Very easy to grow and cheap, good for a beginners first grow, wasn?t too impressed with the taste but it gave me a giggle in the head high which was half decent I suppose. Grow along side a Big Bud Super Skunk, it yielded just the same as that so I go a reasonable harvest off it. It was grown under ...continued

Out of 10 seeds 1 germinated, and turned out a Sativa dominant female. I veged for 7 weeks. I found I had to feed this plant higher amounts of Nitrogen than other strains during the first few weeks of flowering. This strain is more suited for big light or outdoors.

I found this strain nothing lik

As my first grow with decent genetics, I was very impressed with this strain. I know that KC Brains' seeds get a lot of flak on these boards - but these seeds all sprouted and popped out the soil (planted directly into soil) within 36hrs, but the last two to sprout got chucked.
