File Date: 02/14/2017
Case No: 0177
Northern Lights #5 Live Resin: Happy Valentine's Day, Clarise!
"The Silence of The Lambs: A Romantic Comedy". Ohhh, doctor. Excuse me while I go take a cold shower.
Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (95%/5%)
Genotype: Northern Lights #5 = Afghani landrace X Thai landrace
There is debate on the lineage. A classic that is one of the most influential breeding strains of all time. I remember how coveted well-grown cuts of this strain were in the mid-to-late 1980s. There was a lot that sucked about the 80s’, but the heirlooms & landraces available back then were wonderful.

Purchase Price: 1g usually retails for $70.00, + tax, but I purchased this extract as part of Cresco’s ‘Reserve 2PK Concentrate Special’, which was $84 for 1g Joliet Jake Shatter & 1g of Northern Lights #5 Live Resin, or $42 per gram.

Physical Characteristics: Glimmering, sunburst-golden; had structure, though quite soft.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
In its intact state, the aromas were a powerful mix of pine and sweet floral. When dabbed, this sample tasted of sweet, flowery pine and hash.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: Northern Lights #5 is known for its classic Indica power-melt stone, and this example delivered. Serious couchlock and body numbing. NL #5 is not just a sleeping pill; there’s plenty of euphoria, too.
To sum up:
Duration of Effects: 2.5-3.5+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with G.I. discomfort and sleep. May also help with body pain, nerve pain, muscle pain, PTSD, anxiety, stress (and more).
An outstanding translation of the Northern Lights #5 flower to a live resin. Good medicine.
