HHC Flower Northern Lights
Northern Lights HHC flower brings a whole attitude to the world-renowned, highly potent strain.
Built on the back of a Norther Lights core, this organically grown product is glazed with the HHC and kiefed with CBG isolate. It delivers an intense indica experience heightened by the sativa power of HHC and a powerful boost of CBG.
The high is what consumers have come to expect from the legendary Northern Lights strain—only more so. It’s a combination of relaxing body sensations with the heady effects of HHC.
As on the most popular strains since the 1980s, Northern Lights creates a high that combines that intense body sensations and seductively sleepy feelings.
Northern Lights tastes like Its intense terpene profile gives the strain a dank and piney scent with subtle hints of fruit. Its inhale tastes sweeter than the smell suggests, tasting something like candy with a slight earthy aftertaste.
It produces large, heavy buds covered with a layer of trichomes. Its primarily a deep olive green, although several buds include purple tones. Upon a close inspection, it’s clear that small pistils run throughout the buds, adding a touch of dull orange to the greenish blue palette.
Why is it named Northern Lights?
Northern Lights is named after the Aurora Borealis, a weather phenomenon in upper latitudes that creates giant ribbons of light.
But exactly why it gets this name is up for debate. Some growers claim that purple and green swirls of color on the buds themselves are reminiscent of the Aurora Borealis.
Others say that the psychedelic nature of the experience inspires feelings of magnificent awe in the same way the Northern Lights do. For years, cannabis enthusiasts have passed around a legend saying that certain varietals of Northern Lights have such an extreme potency that they affect how the brain processes light stimuli, resulting in users seeing a glittery or shimmering outline around objects.
While Northern Lights is a muscular strain that indeed produces tremendous effects, it does not cause hallucinations. And, though the medium-sized buds are gorgeously green and speckled with crystalline trichomes, they don’t quite produce delicate ribbons of green and purple like the aurora.
So, while the strain name may not quite live it up to those legends, there are certainly ways it relates it the Aurora Borealis. The light show and the strain are both unmistakable. They’re both powerful spectacles of nature. Both can have a powerful effect on the psyche. And both should be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
There’s a reason Northern Lights has been one of the most-awarded cannabis varietals of all time. Just like the Aurora Borealis, Northern Lights is
Which Northern Lights Strain is the Best?
Northern Lights isn’t just one strain. It’s the name of a collection of strains all created at the same time from a legendary breeding session that produced more than a dozen plants.
Each of those plants has its own lineage with slightly different effects, but the same powerful core experience. Today, only a handful phenotypes of the original plants are in circulation.
The most popular varietals include Northern Lights #1, #2, #5, #9, and #11. Only very experienced users with incredible access to seeds have tried all varietals. The differences between the phenotypes generally come down to THC content and terpene profiles.
The most popular phenotype is #5, which is normally referred to simply as “Northern Lights.” If you’ve tried a phenotype of Northern Lights that doesn’t list a number, it was more than likely this varietal.
However, if you’re interested in experiencing a more sativa-tinted version of Northern Lights, this HHC flower is a better bet than trying to find a less-popular phenotype.
The HHC contributes a heady, cerebral element to the intense relaxing sensations of Northern Lights. It’s a more well-rounded high. Users can expect less couchlock and more of an energizing sensation than the typical Northern Lights experience.
Users who find Northern Lights too sleepy or wish to stay alert while under its effects often find that this HHC flowers delivers the best of both worlds.

What is HHC and How Does it Affect a High?
HHC or hexahydrcannabinol is a naturally occurring element in cannabis and hemp plants that creates a powerful psychoactive experience when inhaled or ingested.
Most literature on HHC describes its high as more powerful than Delta 8 THC, but less powerful than Delta 9 (or regular) THC. It often gets described as a more cerebral version of Delta 8. If Delta 8 THC is an indica, HHC is a sativa.
However, HHC affects every individual differently. Some users experience it as far more intense than Delta 8 products, while others say it’s only slightly more potent.
For that reason, newcomers are urged to consumer with caution. The typical advice—start low and go slow—applies here. Begin with just a single hit of Northern Lights HHC flower, wait about 20 minutes, and only take another one if you feel up to it.
With all the comparisons to Delta 8 THC, it’s tempting to think of HHC as another isomer of THC. But it’s actually a completely separate molecule. While it also interacts with the endocannabinoid system and produces psychoactive effects, it is chemically distinct from the THC family.
There's good and bad to HHC.
It’s good because HHC on its own will not trigger drug tests. However, when it’s combined with CBD hemp flower, the product can include trace amounts of THC that can cause certain drug screens to show positive. This usually only happens when CBD hemp flower is consumed in very large quantities because the THC level must be below 0.3% to be legal.
HHC also lasts longer than THC. Because it’s hydrogenated, it doesn’t break down as quickly as THC. Casual users or those who take a long time to go through an ounce can rest easy know that HHC flower won’t lose its efficacy if left alone for extended periods of time.
So how is HHC bad?
It’s only bad in that it’s harder to predict individual reactions to HHC. Even experience THC users can be surprised by how their bodies react to a new cannabinoid molecule. That means that everyone should start out slow with HHC.
