At Glen's Plant Farm in Washington, there's a particular strain that's making a big splash on the scene. A cross between Chernobyl and Permafrost, this sativa-dominant bud has been named Northern Cross. Great for day or evening use, she's probably one of the most well-rounded strains out there.
THC potency can vary quite a bit with this gal, ranging anywhere from 15% up to 23%. Even so, her nugs are a sight to behold, a neon green shade that includes tiny orange hairs and super bright white trichomes. Bold flavors and aromas await you as earth and citrus blend with hints of peppery spice to round things out. Sweet and sour, spicy and hearty - Northern Cross seems to have it all.
While she is quite sativa-dominant, this strain does a great job in offering bursts of energy and happiness that aren't jittery or over the top. Imagine feeling relatively normal except elevated a few pegs on the frequency of life, that's what this high will be like. Creativity and focus abound, allowing you to zero in on projects that have fallen by the wayside. Despite your obvious ability to kick butt with a smile on your face, there's a contrasting relaxation and sense of calm that tends to even everything out.
Northern Cross is an ideal strain for people who need a bit of relief from medical ailments without needing to completely knock themselves out. As your mood will be lifted exponentially, those with depression or stress will find a welcome refuge. Minor bodily pain including headaches or cramps can also be alleviated, and issues with inflammation or even a lack of appetite can also be quelled, yet we won't make any promises as to her efficacy with more serious conditions.
Although this bud's testing data tends to be easy to find, what's interesting is that growing information, seed availability, and even details about the breeders themselves are all hidden away from prying eyes. If you live in Washington State you might want to ask around and see if anyone has connections to Glen's Plant Farm, otherwise, you'd best look for it on dispensary shelves instead of getting jazzed about growing it yourself.
When you're in need of a smooth strain that lifts you up without making you feel out of sorts, Northern Cross is an ideal pick. She may not be energetic enough to replace your morning cup of coffee, but at least you'll step into the workplace with a smile on your face and the confidence to get your tasks done. Alternatively, you can try some of this bud on the weekends and spend some time being active outdoors, a favorite past time of those in the Pacific NW.
