October’s Strain of the Month – Ghost Train Haze
It’s finally October…so it’s basically Halloween for the rest of the month, right? There are no tricks here at Dime Bags, but why not treat yourself with some new buds? This month, we’d like to highlight one of our favorite not-so-spooky sativa strain: Ghost Train Haze.
Ghost Train Haze: At A Glance
Ghost Train Haze might soon have you under its spell. This sativa is a cross between Ghost OG and Neville’s Wreck, with a pungent citrus and floral aroma. It differs from your typical sativa, though, because buds are on the denser side and covered in white crystals – which is probably where the “ghost” part comes in. Trapped in these trichomes is a heavy dose of THC, leading lots of smokers to stash some extra nugs away for special occasions.
Who Should Smoke Ghost Train Haze?
This strain was named “Most Potent Strain on Earth” by High Times in 2012, which is pretty cool – but also something to look out for. It averages around 28% THC, which is extremely high (pun intended), but it’s packed with medicinal benefits. It’s good for pain, depression, and gives you the munchies when you don’t feel like eating. Low doses are good for concentration, creativity, and a quick boost of energy. But be careful, larger doses can create “brain fog” and leave you in a daze. Lazy days are okay, but make sure you’ve got no responsibilities if you’ll be ripping the bong all night with your friends.
What Users Think
Though Ghost Train Haze is loved by many, it’s most popular in Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Denver. With 667 reviews on Leafly, it averages a 4.6-star review, with almost all users rating it as “exceptional.” People love that it leaves you feeling euphoric, uplifted, happy, and energetic. Dispensary employees suggest it for people suffering from stress, depression, pain, headaches, and fatigue. But be sure to keep a glass of water and some eye drops near you, as Ghost Train Haze is known to cause dry eyes and cotton mouth.
Growing Ghost Train Haze
For a good yield, this strain needs a hot and dry environment when growing outdoors, so it’s usually more suitable for indoor growing. Flowering time is 65 to 80 days, and outdoor crops usually harvest around late October (pretty suitable to the name, huh?). It’s naturally resistant to many common diseases and usually grown with a hydroponics system. It’s not the easiest strain to grow, but it can yield a nice crop if treated nicely – about one to three ounces per square foot of plant.
To sum it up, Ghost Train Haze is a strong sativa that’s loved by many experienced stoners. Because of its high THC content, smoking this is known to leave users feeling borderline psychedelic. Make sure to have some best buds around to smoke these best buds, because they’re known to induce fits of laughter and hours of happiness. Half a joint later, and you might just have a new favorite strain.
