atomic northern lights?
    #4518062 - 08/10/05 02:08 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

well i have the oppertunity to buy alot of "atomic northern lights". The dealer says that this weed has about 25-30% THC... which is a shit load if this is true

the thing is because of this he sells this weed for 20$ a dime bag.

so im wondering if this is atomic northern lights is it worth the 20$ per gram?

i will have a scale and testing kit along with me when i buy it soo

In my experience dealers like to make up new names for weed, I've had some pretty ridiculous strain names thrown at me in the past but in general by the time it has made its merry way down the chain of supply nobody really knows what the hell it is. Unless you know the grower I wouldn't pay over the odds if you can get good stuff elsewhere. Can't comment of the price because I have no idea how much a dimebag is (UK) and we don't operate in grams! Most good dealers won't mind a 'try before you buy' policy, especially at high prices.

Northern Lights is up there with the best, don't know of any strains with 'Atomic' in the name but you never know. 30% THC sounds pretty far-fetched- very, very few strains can boast a count that high, other than say, the real G13.

Dude, taking scales to your dealers is well cheeky :P Weigh it afterwards and shop somewhere else if you get less than you hoped. Judging by eye is enough for most people!

A testing kit??

Anyways, yeah that sounds sketchy to me...25% THC...I dunno...

Ask your dealer to let you sample a bowl before you buy any. If he doesn't...never buy from him again and tell all your friends not to as well.

A name is a name, its all BS, forget the name, and the marketting BS, and look at the product.

Look at it, and smell it, chances are ok thats its "worth" 20 a gram. But it needs to be bright and crystally. Dont look at red hars, or any of that..look at the little white shiney balls covering the nug. If it looks as crystally as the stuff you normally buy and doesnt make you go "dammnnnnn", then dont buy it.

$10 a gram sounds delicious, in SoCal a gram is usually $20 so a dime comes out to a 1/2g.

But like people have said, unless there's a reason to believe the dealer, he's probably just giving it a cool name to raise the price.

Northern Lights is highly adapted to indoor growing. Nearly all promising modern indoor strains contain NL genes. High flower to leaf ratio, compact buds, good yields and exceptional resin production are all characteristics displayed by this wonderful plant. Northern Lights is a most lucrative plant for the indoor grower. The smoke is full bodied yet somewhat neutral in flavour.

? Plant height: Short Plant
? Stoned or high?: Stoned INDICA

"Hydro", "Greenleaf", "Atomic", and whatever you wanna call it goes for $20 a dime over here around Detroit, too. You can instantly tell that its a step up from the rest of the bud because it is bright, squishy, crystally, and pugent smelling.

You KNOW if its worth 20 bucks by the color and smell. If you doubt it, pass on it.

Btw, our dimes are generally 1.3-1.6g.

Atomic Northern Lights is in the "Big Book of Buds". I think (but i dont remember exactly) it said that it was revived from the DNA of an extinct or withering strain of Cannabis indica. Supposedly it was grown in a lab or some kind of proffesional, exteremely high grade set up. I dont know if the whole extinct strain thing is for real, but the original ANL is not something that youll just find on the streets.
I seriously doubt that this guy has ANL. That price for that kind of bud is BS for sure.

I know this post is over but 25-30% THC I don't think is possible with this strain... according to overgrow its more like 16-21%. 30% is very rare even in the medicinal grades... most medicinal grade is around 21-25%. I have a NL #5 X White Widow cross at around 19-20% THC and its considered a medicinal plant but is not breed specifically for medicinal study, IF I ever came off with 3.5 grams.... I'd only charge 35$-$45 because I hate people who overcharge!!! I wouldn't pay more than $15 per gram, if it was 30% THC he would be charging more like $70 per 3.5 grams b/c of rarety.

You mean 20$ per half eight because a DIME bag is 10$...hence the name.

Damn... my friend must have been a nice person back in the day :smile:  I used to know someone who used to give 2g for $10 and 2.5g for $15 and 4.5g for $25.  You mean it isn't like that anymore!?!  WTF happened?  It's amazing how much we have to pay for plants that grow in the wild... everyone needs their own plant & wildlife preservation one acre plot...
