Appearance & Aroma
The nugs of Northern Lights #5 X Haze are large and thick with a cone-like shape. They are much more dense than typical sativas and because of this perhaps do look more like an indica. It is bright green in colour with many patches of yellow-orange throughout, with burnt orange pistils intertwining throughout, giving it a bit of a golden appearance. The strain is predominantly spicy, pungent, herbal and earthy in terms of its aromas, a classic blend of cannabis scents. When smoking, however, its flavours offer much more than its aromas give off! Users will taste noticeable flavours of sweet fruity citrus in addition to hints of peppermint spice, complemented by the freshness of pine, creating a unique though delicious and unforgettable blend!
