Afghani No. 1 is a traditional landrace Strain collected in the mountains of Afghanistan by Sacred Seeds in the 1970s. It was one of the first pure indica true-breeding strains used in worldwide cannabis breeding programmes. Hash Plant There are many variations of Hash Plant ; it reportedly originated as a Lebanese/Thai Hybrid in North West USA and was later hybridised with Northern Lights No 1. Like many popular US strains it was brought to Holland as a clone for further development within commercial seed breeding programmes. Northern Lights distinctly shows its Afghani indica genetic background; it is a small plant that produces, big highly resinous flowers. Although it was initially developed for indoor growers excellent results have been produced outside.

The Genetics of Northern Lights is one of the most confused of all existing cannabis strains because there is no one who can take entire credit for its creation. Northern Lights was developed as an indoor seed Strain in the late 1970s near Seattle in Washington, although the Genetics involved in the cross were known to have come from California – the original home of a great many of the most famous cannabis strains. It was initially a stabilised cannabis sativa Strain crossed with an Afghani indica Hybrid,Northern Lights travelled to Holland as a clone where it was introduced to the commercial cannabis seed market in 1985
