The heavily potent, Indica-dominant (80/20) hybrid known as Nf1 is rare, full, and wickedly strong. Commonwealth Alternative Care cultivated this strain from Chemdawg and Northern Lights, from which Nf1 gets a potent diesel tint and the aroma of pine, respectively. While Nf1 isn’t the most commonly used strain, its parents are both touchstones in the world of outdoorsy, diesel-flavored powerhouses. Anyone with a little experience should recognize the parent’s qualities in their offspring, which opens the door to enjoy both the old and new that combines in Nf1 to soothe and relax you after a hard week of work.
The rule with Nf1 is Northern Lights on the inhale and Chemdawg on the exhale. To put it another way, you’ll be breathing the outdoors and expelling a car engine. Don’t expect to hide your habit behind Nf1 – it makes its spicy aroma well-known to everyone in the house. The terpenes combine to form a citrus, pine, and earthy taste – both sweet and sour. They include Bisabolol’s diesel flavors, as well as the sweet pepperiness of Phellandrene.
The plant itself grows in nugs shaped like hearts, a bright green color covered in plump yellow hairs. The name Nf1 refers to a system-wide genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis Type 1, which causes benign growths in the eye, skin changes, and above-average head size. It can ultimately result in developmental conditions such as scoliosis, learning disabilities, and more as tumors begin growing throughout the immune system. Some Indica-heavy strains have been known to provide anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties, as well as lifting the patient’s mood, reducing nausea from both the disease and its treatments, and easing their pain. Nf1 isn’t named for the disease on accident – it may have properties that are ideal for anyone suffering from the real Nf1.
Its effects are therefore multifaceted. Nf1 can relieve anxiety, pain, and depression, whether or not it’s related to a neurological condition. It can help users heal from traumatic stress, recover from frequent bouts of nausea, and regain a repressed appetite. The feelings it creates after just a few puffs feel like a lifting attitude, a sense of relaxation, cerebral calm, and euphoria. You’ll be happy, but also heavy – Nf1 bolts you to your couch and doesn’t let you up. If that’s what you need, Nf1’s strong scent of pine, spicy diesel flavor, and an overall sense of mental accomplishment could be your ticket away from work stress, out of your physical ailments, and into a state of neurological calm (and hunger).
