Northern Lights Auto: An Old Strain on Steroids!

Northern Lights Auto is an extremely famous strain created in the 1970’s in the United States. Its genetics are Afghani in origin based on Indica descendants. NL made its way to Holland in the 1980’s and quickly became the standard strain for indoor growing. Since then many companies have made their own take on the classic by mixing its genetics and selective breeding techniques. These tweaks of its genetics have led to the development of this strain — on steroids!

Auto means that the plant will automatically flower when it reaches about 30 days after the seedling sprouts. Auto isn’t the first choice of experienced growers because it does tend to yield less than the standard cannabis strain. Beginners and intermediate growers will love this auto strain because this strain has been undergoing a lot of changes in the last couple of years. Not only is this strain available in auto-flowering, but its genetics have also been improved in such a way that the plant’s yield and THC potency is close to that of the regular NL strain.

NLA grows large dense packed buds which are covered in glistening frosty crystals. Outdoors, you can expect about 200 g yield while indoors you will see around 120 g. Grown indoors under intense LED’s you can increase that indoor yield to around 150 g. That’s a ton of bud from a plant that stands around 90 cm tall.

NLA is auto-flowering and feminized so that growers don’t have to worry about sexing and discarding male cannabis plants. This strain is perfect growing indoors and outdoors with a harvest time of about 10 weeks from a seedling. This strain is suitable to grow in most climates and under most types of grow lights.

This auto strain continues its classic properties as the plants grow fast and produce little odor when growing indoors. Their auto flower buds have a sweet fragrant aroma and provide an intense high — thanks to its thick sticky coating of trichomes.

Generally, you will find that the Indica strain will create a relaxing feeling, which can end up in a couch lock. Its overall cerebral effect is relaxing and mellow while allowing the user to be active if they choose to be. The medicinal properties of the Indica strain are commonly used to treat sleeping issues, aches and pains, and diseases, such as Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis.

Sativa is almost like the opposite of Indica. I find Indica to be heavier and mellow. Sativa, on the other hand, is uplifting and stimulating. To me, Sativa is my daytime medicine. I can still work, be alert and creative without feeling drowsy or crashing. The Sativa strain medicinal benefits include benefits to people suffering from behavioral issues, such as stress, depression, and ADHD.

Hybrid strains combine the genetics of both Indica and Sativa through some magical genetic modifications. Whichever strain is dominant in the hybrid will dictate the medicinal effects. Indica dominant strains are more mellow and calming while Sativa strains will be more alert.

Why grow auto-flowers?

There is a load of good reasons why beginners should choose auto-flower strains such as NL. Autos are small, stealthy, fast growing, and produce good yields. These are resistant to mold and pests. Auto-flowering seeds can also thrive under unstable or shortened light exposure, which makes them great for growing outdoors in most climates and indoors under any type of grow light.

For beginner growers, the possibilities available to you today are virtually endless. You have access to strains that require much less intervention from the grower and still provide a plethora of strain options to grow. Beginners benefit from the forgiving nature of these tenacious breeds of cannabis.

Autoflower Females vs Males

Regular cannabis seeds (non-feminized) are either male or female, it is a 50/50-coin toss that cannot be manipulated in unmodified seeds. It is because of this terrible male to female ratio that has led a whole industry into creatively breeding and genetically modifying seeds to take control of their basic genetic instructions.

If seeds are feminized by a proper seed company, you end up with seeds that produce 99% female plants. Wow! That means no more searching for and tossing out male plants before they destroy your precious buds.
