It gets its name from a natural phenomena by the name of “Aurora Borealis,” or as we call it, Northern Lights. The occurrence is the result of a serious collision between electrically charged particles from the Sun. The little pieces enter the earth’s atmosphere, producing lights that are above the magnetic poles of the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
The lights appear in various colors, but most often are green, which explains the name of this cannabis strain. Aurora Borealis is also seen as purple, yellow, red and blue in the North. And there are similar colors that show up in the South Pole.
While it is difficult to pinpoint the exact origins of this strain, there is one famous story about growers in California who took it to Holland, and things just expanded from there.
