The origins of Northern Lights are shrouded in mystery because there is no one single breeder who can take all of the credit for its creation. It was developed for indoor cultivation in the late 1970s around the city of Seattle in Washington state although the various genetics that gave rise to this hybrid were known to have originated in California from whence many great, modern hybrid strains of cannabis hail. The first iteration was the result of a stabilised sativa crossed with an Afghan indica.
Northern Lights made the journey to Holland in clone form and was introduced to the nascent cannabis seed market in 1985 by The Seed Bank. Due to the fact that it was only available in clone form it could not undergo a process of in-breeding to stabilise it in order to produce seeds. For this reason it was crossed with both Skunk #1 and Original Haze leading to the availability of seeds to a market of grateful growers.
The modern day Northern Lights clearly displays its Afghani Indica heritage growing into small plants that nevertheless produce dense buds with loads of resin. Although primarily an indoor strain it can be grown very successfully outdoors in warmer areas. It gives a sweet smoke thick with resin and the effect is of a comfortable but lazy feeling which has come to be known as "couch-lock".
One of the most trustworthy and professional seed banks in today’s industry, here at Seedsman, we have over a decade of experience in selling quality products at a very reasonable price.
Our initial concept was to help expert breeders package, market and sell their cannabis seeds. We are not - and have never claimed to be - breeders ourselves, but we do work very closely with our suppliers in order to maximise the exposure of their high quality inbred, hybrid and landrace cannabis strains.
Our cannabis seeds have come from pioneering breeders, some who prefer to remain nameless and others who are known worldwide for the quality of their breeding. Sacred Seeds and Sam the Skunkman are our most famous suppliers. The huge breeding programme helped to create seminal marihuana strains such as Skunk #1 and Original Haze.
As well as mass hybrid cannabis strains with mass market appeal, we are also very keen to maintain high quality landrace strains, as we see these as the fundamental genetics in cannabis evolution.
In 2007, we launched the Seedsman Feminised cannabis seeds range, which was put together from strains created by breeders we had befriended in previous years. We have kept the number of strains to a minimum so that we can maintain the highest quality possible. Each strain offers a unique taste, and importantly, growth characteristics which display each strain’s individual genetic make-up.
In 2011, we introduced our Autoflowering Feminised strains which, like all cannabis seeds under the Seedsman brand, offer great quality at a very reasonable price.
