Northern Lights #5 x Haze Feminized has won numerous awards, and for good reason. Growers enjoy huge yields, and an invigorating and uplifting high. It’s a 70% sativa, but its 30% indica comes through in the plentiful resinous buds. The scent is potent and earthy, with a hint of citrus and pine. If the mother plants are well cared for, they’ll continue to produce great harvests, year after year.
Growth pattern of Northern Lights #5 x Haze Feminized
Northern Lights #5 x Haze Feminized cannabis seeds (sometimes called NL5 x Haze) are 70% sativa, with 30% indica thrown into the mix. Developed by Sensi Seeds, the award-winning strain displays its sativa-dominant genetics in the high (and the towering heights), though the indica influence is evident in the abundant yields and dense buds.
This is the feminized variant, which means that the seeds are unlikely to produce any male plants. For growers that want an easier cultivation process, this is a big advantage. The plants have a slightly longer flowering time (of around 65 to 75 days); however, this extra wait is cancelled out by keeping the vegetation period short.
Thanks to its sativa heritage, Northern Lights #5 x Haze plants can grow extremely tall. This is particularly the case when cultivated outdoors. In fact, in optimum conditions outside, it’s not uncommon for the plants to soar as high as 250 to 300 cm. Indoors, their growth is rather less lofty; growers can expect them to reach around 120 to 170 cm on average.
Structurally, NL5 x Haze owes much to its sativa parentage; large and lanky, with long branches. Its buds swiftly fill the gaps between the internodes, and over time, become long and thick. In fact, the terminal buds can sometimes become wider and longer than the grower’s arm!
It’s a big-yielding strain. When cultivated inside, growers frequently report harvests of around 450 grams per square metre. Outside, the yield is around 800 grams per plant. Northern Lights #5 x Haze flourishes in warm and sunny climates, with long summers. This is largely due to its extended flowering time. It’s well-matched to many training techniques, including SOG (Sea of Green), SCROG (Screen of Green), lollipopping, and supercropping.
Effect, taste, and smell of Northern Lights #5 x Haze Feminized
Northern Lights Feminized #5 x Haze is very much sativa-dominant. The sativa influence is particularly evident in the high, which is exuberant, cheery and creative. Users often claim that it makes them feel chatty too, which makes it a good choice for enjoying with friends. However, don’t underestimate the indica element. This comes through a while later – a deep, relaxing stone that calms the body and mind.
While growing, NL5 x Haze produces a pleasantly spicy, citrussy aroma. This deepens towards harvest-time, and is very noticeable once the buds are cured. When consuming, be aware that it smells particularly potent! Taste-wise, users can expect to detect notes of citrus fruit and pine, along with earthiness and sweetness.
