Northern Lights #5 x Haze brings together a soaring, tropical sativa high with the shorter flowering, heavier yielding Afghani qualities. This 70% sativa plant is still one of the very finest cannabis hybrid strains ever created. HTCC winner in 1993 and still going strong.
Displaying great hybrid vigour this is an excellent indoor strain which will also prosper outdoors in warm, Mediterranean climates or even in a greenhouse where the weather is less predictable. These plants stretch quite a lot during the flowering phase such that freshly-rooted cuttings or seedlings that are switched to flowering can still exceed 100 cm. in height. Plants that have a longer vegetative period will become markedly taller than this.
This short growth phase helps to compensate for the longer flowering period of 65 - 75 days - still very quick for such an elite sativa-dominant plant. Outdoor cultivators will be harvesting their stash in late October through to early November in northern latitudes. Yields are exceptionally high and the booty is large buds which are formed by flowering clusters which quickly fill in the spaces between inter-nodes. The terminal buds increase in size almost at an unbelievable rate until maturity when they can be longer and fatter than the growers arm even on plants that have been grown indoors! As an added bonus this is a marijuana strain from which it is very easy to take and root cuttings.
The aroma of this strain is of lemon/citrus and its flavour is very much Haze-influenced. The high really is something else with a soaring, cerebral, almost psychedelic, Haze effect. The whole is very uplifting and creative and has been claimed to be able to alleviate stress as well as providing a source of energy with which to complete tasks.
Northern Lights #5 x Haze - still one of the very best cannabis strains available today.

About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
