Ghost Train Haze is a perennial Cannabis Cup favorite, taking home the award for Top United States Sativa at the 2014 event in Denver. It is a heavily potent sativa strain that reaches up to 27% or 28% THC. Novice smokers or those prone to anxiety may want to pass on Ghost Train Haze, but experienced cannabis enthusiasts will enjoy its strong cerebral high and the "mind melt" which occurs in larger doses.
Overview of Ghost Train Haze
Ghost Train Haze has dense light green buds covered in white trichomes, and a powerful aroma of citrus and pine. Its flavor echoes the aroma, with a pungent citrus taste that includes a hint of sweetness.
Ghost Train Haze has a particularly high THC level, often reaching 27%+. This powerful sativa is a good wake-and-bake or mid-day strain, as it ignites the mind at its onset without ultimately resulting in couchlock effect.
After a few hits, Ghost Train Haze makes the user more talkative. As such, it can be a nice stimulant for good conversation at social gatherings, whether it is time to express deep thoughts or just joke around and laugh. In larger doses the "haze" genetics begin to take over, resulting in a psychedelic high that can cause the smoker to lose focus as they get lost in a sea of racing, unrelated thoughts.
Consumers prone to such feelings may think twice before using Ghost Train Haze in large doses.
Writers and artists find that Ghost Train Haze helps them focus on their creative work, without leaving them intensely drowsy when the high dies down. A few tokes can produce a high of longer than two hours, so the smoker should plan for a lengthy buzz.
