Along with Haze and Skunk #1, Northern Lights is among the most influentials strains of all time. The #5 strain was first entered into competition in 1989. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in '89, '90, and '92.
“Northern Lights is a legendary strain lineage, but #5 is a show stopper. Improved taste, improved resin production, easier to grow and even more enjoyable then it's predecessors. It's citrus and woody taste mixed with the incredible body stone are what set it apart.
Excellent for a night smoke, but still great doing the day if you are not doing anything really serious. This is one of my all-time favorite strain.”
