NARRATIVE:

"The Silence of The Lambs: A Romantic Comedy". Ohhh, doctor. Excuse me while I go take a cold shower. 






 



















ANALYSIS:

Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (95%/5%)     

Genotype:  Northern Lights #5  =  Afghani landrace  X  Thai landrace  

There is debate on the lineage. A classic that is one of the most influential breeding strains of all time. I remember how coveted well-grown cuts of this strain were in the mid-to-late 1980s. There was a lot that sucked about the 80s’, but the heirlooms & landraces available back then were wonderful.

Physical Characteristics:
Glimmering, sunburst-golden; had structure, though quite soft. ​

Terpene Profile:
I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.

In its intact state, the aromas were a powerful mix of pine and sweet floral. When dabbed, this sample tasted of sweet, flowery pine and hash.    

TIPS:
Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.

Effects:
Northern Lights #5 is known for its classic Indica power-melt stone, and this example delivered. Serious couchlock and body numbing. NL #5 is not just a sleeping pill; there’s plenty of euphoria, too.
​To sum up:
