A very giving strain, Northern Express is easy and quick to grow, and able to produce a high yield; all thanks to FastBuds’ autoflowering expertise. She also provides a strong high, uplifting in small doses all the way down to total couch-lock when taken in larger amounts. 18% THC.
Heritage & Genetics: A cross of the legendary, strong indica, Northern Lights x a particularly hardy Canadian Ruderalis, Northern Express from Fastbuds is a popular strain. FastBuds started in LA in 2010 and have since expanded to Europe. Their unique selling point – they bring the best, most popular Cali strains here and mix them to produce simple-to-grow autoflowering varieties; so, even novice growers can enjoy a decent harvest of the best gear around today.
Flavor & Aroma: Northern Express is a pungent little thing (stealth growers take heed!) the aroma is pleasant and fruity though, as oppose to dank. The taste is sweet, candy-like and has a strong overtone of vanilla. Be aware… it’s very moreish, a few tokes may leave you craving more and, as it is deceptively strong, before you know it your completely baked!
Effect: Very balanced and long-lasting, the high from Northern Express is a lovely mixture of sativa and indica effects. It comes on light and inspiring, clearing away the cobwebs and opening your mind: a few tokes will do you well in the daytime and allow you to remain active. The more you use the deeper and denser the high becomes, so don’t overdo daytime use. As the evening draws on, gather friends and retire to the comfy chairs to enjoy the slowly building body-buzz and the full impact of the indica heritage.
Medical: Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Grow characteristics: Super easy-to-grow, Northern Express (like other autoflowering varieties from FastBuds) basically takes care of herself, indoors or out. Plants are small but heavily-laden, with lots of budding sites, so she can produce a good yield. Give her love, light and a decent compost and you will do well. Whether you’re a novice gardener or an experienced grower the product won’t disappoint, buds are dense, sticky and tasty.
