Roller Coaster ride
Hi, First let me say your services have been great but here is what happened to me. I first ordered (15) seeds and that order came in great and 14 of 15 seeds germinated and were starting to grow when a rodent ate the seedlings. Then I ordered this recent replacement order. The order got held up a bit but it came through. This is I only got 6 of 15 to germinate and of the 6 only 4 are now small plants. Thanks for your service. Is there any chance I could get some replacements for the ones that did not germinate? That would be great, just not sure I can grow them now because I am an outside grower and our season is not long here in NH.I will order again for next year.
Hi Todd, of course you can get replacements for your ungerminated seeds. Please get in contact with our customer service so we can help you out!
True to your word!
You guys are amazing. I feel silly for having had even the slightest concern about not receiving my order. It arrived in MA, USA in 4 or 5 days, it was really fast. And the seeds are gorgeous! They are the plumpest, shiniest, roundest seeds I have ever seen. I have no doubt we will get 100% germination. I have grown my own plants several times, am back in school getting my AS in Sustainable Food and Farming and honestly cannot wait to start working with these babies. Thank you for providing such a valuable service. I would like very much if you could make more types of regular seeds available. Other than that, so far, not one area for improvement! A million thank you’s!
So Far So Good
Seeds arrived in 6 days (awesome). I was expecting 5 weeks, so still preparing grow room. Will keep you updated. Also loads of good, clear information. Thanks So Much
ILGM NL(reg) and WW(reg)
First let me start by saying I typically can germinate 90-100% successfully, if the batch is QA'ed properly. I expect 80% or greater germination from my purchases (the rest is up to me). I bought 10 seeds of NL(reg) and 10 of WW(reg). I had 90% germination of WW and only 40% for NL. So I give 2 stars for my NL purchase. I was credited the amount for another 10 NL seed (minus $1 US) and for that action you move to 4 starts for the NL purchase. Of those second 10 NL, again, only 4 successfully germinated so my NL experience deserves 3 stars total. I believe you may have a QA issue in NL seeds. My WW experience is 5 starts. Therefore, my total experience with ILGM seeds (so far) is 4 stars. Depending on the phenotype of the WW and the results of harvest, ILGM may be my go to for WW seeds and I may try other stains you offer. My NL needs will be supplied by another vendor. PS. All plants that made germination are thriving and look beautiful.
- Easy to grow
- Effective harvest with its compact plants
- Very nice taste and smell
If there is any strain you have heard of in the marijuana world, it is probably Northern Lights. Northern Lights has buds dripping with resin, a short flowering phase, and a hardiness that makes it easy to grow for beginners and veterans alike.
Part of Northern Lights’ appeal is the fact that it has a deliciously sweet and also surprisingly spicy aroma. The buds are delightful to look at, as they have shades of purple, green, and other colors. The buds are also coated in a layer of crystals.
Northern Lights has a strong effect on the user, and the high is largely in the head but also affecting the body. Laziness and relaxation characterize a Northern Lights high.
This review is based on the feminized strain, attributes can slightly differ for regulars.
Growing Northern Lights
Northern Lights has a particular reputation for how easy it is to grow. The plant itself is generally small or at most average in size, but its buds tend to be plentiful and resinous. Growing both indoors and outdoors generally leads to an effective harvest of these hardy and agreeable plants. Plants typically grow to about 28 inches tall, making it a compact but high yielding plant.
Northern Lights naturally does best in warm and sunny climates -- think California, the Mediterranean, or North Africa. If grown outdoors, it can grow really large if it receives tons of light and good care. If left to its own devices, however, it may not grow to be as massive but will still do very well.
You can expect Northern Lights marijuana plants to require between 7 and 9 weeks for flowering. Occasionally this ends up being on the shorter side, gearing more towards only 7 weeks rather than the full 9 weeks, so be on your guard for signs that it is done early. If you are growing outdoors, then you can expect to harvest sometime mid-October.
Outdoor plants will get you around 22 ounces per plant, and indoor plants will achieve around 18 ounces of bud per square meter of plant. Of course, that’s assuming no unforeseen obstacles get in the way -- but again, this strain of marijuana is quite hardy and can bounce back relatively easily from anything that comes its way.
These seeds are regular Northern Lights seeds. That means that the seeds are both photosensitive (meaning they enter the flowering phase when the right amount of uninterrupted darkness takes place, such as when the seasons begin to change) and could be either male or female plants. This is in comparison with feminized seeds, which are all female plants, or autoflowering seeds, which do not enter the flowering phase according to the hours of sun or artificial light.
Origin of Northern Lights Strain
Northern Lights has parents that come from Afghanistan and Thailand. In fact, these strains are landrace strains from those countries. It is said that Northern Lights was actually bred in Washington state, but its popularity started in the Netherlands around 1985.
In addition to having a strong background, Northern Lights has also parented a variety of extremely popular strains. These strains include Super Silver Haze and Shiva Skunk -- there is a good chance you have heard of one or the other.
Effects of Northern Lights Strain
Northern Lights gives the user a deep sense of mental and physical relaxation as well as deep comfort and even laziness. Smoking Northern Lights makes the user feel uplifted and euphoric - not couch lock. Sometimes users can begin to feel rather sleepy, which many consider an added benefit of the Northern Lights high.
The Northern Lights high is considered to be very body focused. It can cause a sensation similar to couch lock -- users tend to be extremely comfortable and relaxed wherever they are. In addition, happy thoughts tend to be the focus of a Northern Lights smoker’s attention. Euphoria, laughter, and smiling tend to be common and enjoyable. It is known primarily for its uplifting effects so anyone struggling with negative thoughts, anxieties, or stress can have some kind of instant relief when he or she smokes Northern Lights.
Very occasionally Northern Lights will cause a user to have dry mouth, dry eyes, feelings of dizziness or paranoia, or even a headache. These adverse effects, aside from perhaps the dry mouth and eyes, are quite rare.
The positive effects of Northern Lights can include:
The negative effects of Northern Lights can include:
- Dry mouth

Taste and Aroma of Northern Lights Strain
The taste and smell of Northern Lights is extremely pleasant, which of course has a lot to do with its popularity. Earthiness, sweetness, and a distinct taste or smell of pine are all included in the Northern Lights experience.
The smell is generally considered sweet and spicy, although bitter lime is also mixed in. Some interpret the smell either as citrus or as ammonia (the skunk smell), but either way, it is a strong scent that is hard to ignore.
The taste of Northern Lights is skunky and full, but it is not the overwhelming flavor that you might get with other skunk varieties. When you smoke it, you can expect to experience a bit of dankness as well as sweetness, lemons, earthiness, and fresh pine.
