Two cultivars that have shaped the cannabis landscape - Skunk and Northern Lights - share one similarity. Both are descendants of the most exquisite and highly-regarded landraces from all corners of the world.
Among all Indica varieties, Northern Lights continue to be the standard by which others are gauged. A descendant of Afghani, it could have been a pure Indica were it not for Thai genes. Then again, that is precisely why it offers a stimulating cerebral high before the body stone. Since 1985, it has graced consumers with absolute relaxation. Moreover, breeders worldwide have used it to create new hybrids or improve existing classics.
Skunk, on the other hand, is better known for delivering an energetic high and the distinct aroma of its namesake. Its genetics is mostly a derivative of landraces from Afghanistan, Mexico, and Colombia. One similarity it shares with Northern Lights is the Afghani.
In creating this new hybrid, much of the genetics retained was based on the female Northern Lights used. It still delivers the same profound relaxing body high, but Skunk takes the cerebral stimulation up a notch. Once a stable mother emerged, Homegrown Cannabis Co. and its team of elite breeders then worked on infusing Ruderalis genes to produce fast version seeds.
A truly versatile cultivar, Skunk x Northern Lights is excellent for recreational or medical use. In the grow room, the Afghani heritage is evidenced by its resiliency, hardiness, and resistance to common pests and diseases. Fast version seeds also cut down the flowering time by two weeks.
Skunk x Northern Lights, incidentally, together with an original Haze were the three cultivars used in creating Super Silver Haze - one of the top Sativa cultivars in the world and a three-time Cannabis Cup winner.
Growing Skunk x Northern Lights from Fast Version Seeds
Growing Skunk x Northern Lights incorporates Ruderalis genes to reduce the flowering period. From 8-9 weeks, it can be harvested after 6-7 weeks. It remains a photoperiod variety too. In some ways, it is a compromise between depending on light cycles and the rapid growth rates of autos. Of utmost importance is that even with the accelerated flowering speed, it does not compromise on trichome production and overall yields.
Raising this plant is straightforward. After the taproots appear, it can be placed in small pots to let the seedlings grow. Once in the vegetative phase, start feeding nutrients with 1/2 strength before gradually increasing to ensure that it responds well. As an option, it could also be grown under the Sea of Green by taking cuts of the best female to emerge. In this case, it could yield up to 500 grams per square meter using 600 watts HPS.
Outdoors, this cultivar prefers a warm climate. Usually, the harvest period in the northern hemisphere is mid-October. Under suitable conditions, it produces up to 600 grams of buds per plant.
Fragrance and Flavor
Skunk x Northern Lights exudes a pungent odor that is mainly an earthy and piney blend. It is accentuated by a subtly sweet and skunky note.
On genotype, Skunk x Northern Lights leans heavily towards the Indica. Still, its effects are fast-acting. It takes only a few minutes after taking a couple of hits to feel a euphoric buzz surging in.
In this initial stage of the psychedelic experience, Skunk plays a crucial role in delivering a head-clearing, creative high to go along with the mood enhancement. As the sense of happiness swell, staying focused on tasks becomes a much more enjoyable experience.
Before mistaking this to be a wake-and-bake cultivar, the relaxing effects that flood into the body after 20-40 minutes wipe out that thought. The soothing sensation that brings calm soon intensifies. Not only does it put the muscles at ease. It also weighs down the limbs. At this point, the mental high takes on a dreamy quality while the body succumbs to a heavy couch-lock.
Within limitations, Skunk x Northern Lights induces side effects such as dry eyes and cottonmouth. It also could cause a headache or dizziness. Such conditions could be mitigated by drinking plenty of fluids. Carelessness on dosing, on the other hand, could lead to anxiousness or paranoia.
Skunk x Northern Lights Fast Version Seeds
Both cultivars being descendants of landraces, the qualities and traits of Skunk and Northern Lights are undisputed. Each has gone on to become legends and has shaped the cannabis scene. Both have also spawned numerous descendants that eventually achieve elite status.
In crossing these two, Skunk x Northern Lights provides a pronounced cerebral kick before delivering a classic couch-locking body stone. It not only obliterates stress but also melts away pains.
Getting ahold of this cultivar begins with obtaining the fast version feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. These seeds have a nearly 100% germination rate. Moreover, it has among the highest female turnout in the industry too. Cultivating is not challenging that even beginners could raise the plant to full maturity. Best of all, its flowering time is insanely short. During harvest, the rewards come in the form of high yields.
