Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. Itself a descendant of indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains, Northern Lights has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze. Rumor has it that Northern Lights first sprouted near Seattle, Washington, but was propagated out of Holland after 1985 at what is now Sensi Seeds.

From the OCS website, ” Northern Lights is a popular descendant of indigenous Afghani Thai landrace strains. It offers up a strong sweet-and-spicy aroma. The buds are dense and coated in crystals. This is an indica-dominant strain. It was grown indoors, in a state-of-the-art growing facility with minimal human involvement.

Looking for Northern Lights

Northern Lights by WeedMe packaged on November 6, 2020, cost $34.95 for 3.5 grams with 14.0% THC smelling like “grass” as in the grass that grows on your lawn.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.  We are looking for Mr. Northern Lights.

The “high” starts during inhalation with a light euphoric awakening.  As time progress, the light lift got a little stronger and we felt a bit happier.  Ten minutes into the session, we are flapping our arms and jumping trying to “Fly.”  There is a takeoff happening but we are not really that “high.”  This is an extremely poor rendition of Northern Lights.  Twenty minutes into the “high,” there is some time dilation but the quality of the expressions are muted and dull.  Noteworthy, this is one of the lowest THC review we have done in a very long time.  Even the $120 an ounce weed comes with 15% THC and feels more potent.

There are many phenotypes of Northern Lights with some more sativa and others more indica.  But they all have one thing in common for a well rendered Northern Lights, they are one of the most psychedelic strains created.  This rendition of Northern Lights delivered a fraction of our expectations.  Accordingly, our disappointment is directly proportional to our expectations, which was immense.  Our search for Mr. Northern Lights was a complete failure.

WeedMe is a great LP with our Cindy Jack review.  But, this strain did not grow well and WeedMe decided to shove it into the market at a slight discount.  We are very surprised by this very poor quality cannabis from WeedMe.  At the half hour mark, the “high” was a muted bag of expressions where there were some euphoria, joy and time dilation.

Activity pairing is best for the evening time slot as this Northern Lights have a tranquility ending.  The low grade “high” delivered by this Northern Lights makes it suitable for watching movies or some light house of garden chores?  Even better, try and avoid this strain?  Take advantage of our suffering.


Northern Lights by WeedMe

In all our reviews, only one low THC review stood out to challenge the requirement for 20%+ THC and that was TGOD’s Chocolope at 12.64% THC, which was forever etched into our minds.  This 14.0% THC Northern Lights by WeedMe, however, only serves to illustrate low THC equates to lower quality “high” experience.

THC:  14.0%

Quality:  7.0

Intensity:  7.2

Duration:  7.2

Total:  7.13

Cost:  $34.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  No.  In today’s competitive legal cannabis market, this product is significantly mispriced.  There are products under $20 for 3.5 grams that deliver more impactful experiences.  While we enjoyed and recommended WeedMe’s Cindy Jack, we advise avoiding WeedMe’s Northern Lights.

On an investment note, the lack of a decent Northern Lights rendition may well be there is no good “Mother” for Northern Lights.  Muskoka Grown ran into financial troubles spending money trying to bring their own “Mother” to market, which was a bit of luck and a lot of trying.  Cannabis is a business that can be built on one divine “Mother” where the World will beat a path to her.  The hard part is finding her.
