The evocative and dynamic name of Atomic Northern Lights is the best indicator of its psychedelic effect. Like all legendary cannabis strains Atomic Northern Lights also has storied genetics, from its journey across the world.
It was made when Afghani Indica reached the USA, and was merged with Thai Haze. The resultant super strain delivers sweet, peppery and woody flavor along with a pungent floral aroma.
When the Atomic Northern Lights is properly cultivated, the flowers have an earthy, musky scent with an undertone of fresh pine. When these earthy flowers are ground, they release a classic scent of incense and hash that reveals its dominant link with the Afghani strain.
Atomic Northern Lights does not hit the smoker suddenly but it gradually creeps in. After a few minutes of savoring the musk, the smoker feels a slight tingle in the temple and neck. The surrounding might reach a new significance and intensity.
