NL is a indica, yes?

Piss as in ammonia?

NL is one of this strains that breeders selected for it’s lack of smell. It’s supposedly a combination of Thai and Afghan landrace strains. VERY psychhoactive. but not very terpy. That’s what I read somewhere, anyway. It used to be THE strain back a few years ago. but trends change. Now, everyone wants the heavy STANK weed! I want it, too!

But, at least NL isn’t a complex hybrid that contains genetics from half a trillion strains. Maybe in the future, a breeder could self it and then start selecting phenotypes that stand out as stinkers and ultimately get back to those old landrace flavors and traits.

I don’t think it’s supposed to smell like piss, though. but at day 25, it’s only starting to develop it’s terpenes. The smell will run through a few different odors before it ripens completely. Be patient. It might turn out some really nice smoke!

Sure thing, man! I hope it ripens into something really great!

I grew a Vortex plant a long time ago and when it first started really setting buds at around day 21, the thing smelled like someone was boiling cauliflower. which I can’t stand the smell of. but at day 70, it had taken on a whole array of different kinds of funkiness and rotting fruit smell. and the flavor was incredible!

NL isn’t just “any” old strain. If it is legit, then you have some world-renowned genetics in your hands. But, it shouldn’t be repugnant or smell like piss and make you gag!

NL isn’t a stinky strain in the first place . at least not in my experience . actually ran several last go
Good smoke and decently frosty. low smell

Day 25 of flower, northern lights. Don't even scrub the air yet… There's barely any smell to er, if there is a smell, it smells like fucking piss? What's…

Northern Lights

aka NL

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.

Pungently sweet, spicy aromas radiate from the crystal-coated buds, which sometimes reveal themselves in hues of purple. Northern Lights’ psychoactive effects settle in firmly throughout the body, relaxing muscles and pacifying the mind in dreamy euphoria. Comfortable laziness allows patients to relieve pain and sleeplessness, while its mellow contentment roots out depression and stress. Several different Northern Lights phenotypes circulate the market, but Sensi Seeds recommends a general indoor flowering time of 45 to 50 days.
