The Northern Lights #5 x Haze hybrid is famous for being the first successful 50 percent Haze cross released.
The Haze is a long (up to 6 months) flowering sativa from the U.S. Very popular in the 1970s, it became nearly extinct in the late 1980s because growers were switching to easier, higher-yielding varieties. Breeders at the Cannabis Castle crossed Haze genetics with the uniform and quick-finishing NL 5 indica to make a lush producer with a refreshing high.
Due to the radically sativa nature of the Haze, this cross stretches a lot and takes a longer flowering period to finish than most common cannabis hybrids. This stretchy quality also allows cuttings to enter flowering as soon as they are rooted. Some growers even start the seeds under a 12-hour light regimen with success. This early entry into flowering phase allows NL-Haze to finish in a similar amount of time as conventional, indica-heavy crosses that need more vegetative time. The growth tendencies of the NL-Haze are enhanced when grown as larger plants and diminished in a sea of green method.
Don’t be tempted to harvest too early. Long flowering crosses can create some nail-biting for the grower, but tenacity and some experience pay off with buds of superb quality. NL-Haze delivers fresh, spicy sativa-type buds that have a clean, peppery taste. An immediate, cerebral high, this pot has sometimes been referred to as “speed weed” in Holland. Overall, NL-Haze is a friendly high with a trippy edge that adds some extra zing to any day.
