19 May Strain Review: Ghost Train Haze
The weather is starting to warm up and it’s time to find an uplifting and fresh sativa to get you moving in the morning. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect strain to brighten your day and make your spring cleaning a more enjoyable task.
The strain is Ghost Train Haze.
This well-known sativa is the Denver-born lovechild of Ghost OG and Neville’s Wreck, two sativa-dominant hybrids. Ghost OG and Neville’s Wreck are two strong bedtime strains, but their combined genes create the wake-and-bake GTH. The euphoric effects of Neville’s Wreck dominate Ghost Train Haze – once you inhale, we’re sure you’ll get the giggles.
Ghost Train Haze has only been around since 2011, but it quickly made a name for itself. In 2012, High Times named GTH “The Most Potent Strain on Earth.” In 2014, it won first place in the Cannabis Cup for the best U.S. sativa.

Effects of Ghost Train Haze
Immediately after taking a puff of Ghost Train Haze, you’ll feel a cerebral rush and the ability to focus on what’s in front of you. A lot of users report that they feel more creative after using Ghost Train Haze; if you need to finally finish that art project you’ve been working on, GTH can help you out. The energy you get won’t send you off on a run, but it will give you the boost you need to write, paint, or remove some chores from your to-do list.
If you’re going to paint, keep some snacks nearby. Ghost Train Haze will give you the munchies, and munching on your art supplies is not recommended.
Remember, this guy is strong. Take your time with Ghost Train Haze and don’t be afraid to tap out after just a few puffs. You don’t need much more than that to feel the euphoria. GTH is known for having a super high amount of THC – award-winning buds clocked in at around 27%. Users have reported that too much GTH comes with psychedelic effects and the feel of an indica-dominant hybrid, so be careful.
Medical Uses of Ghost Train Haze
A few puffs will bring a smile to your face. Hit it a few more times and you’ll end up in a laughing fit. Many users who suffer from depression or PTSD prefer this strain for a stress-free and calm day. You can use it at any time of day, but we recommend a morning smoke for a good pick-me-up.
Don’t have an appetite? You will after you hit this strain. Cannabis users who suffer from nausea or a loss of appetite have found relief and the desire to eat after smoking Ghost Train Haze. Some people do experience dry mouth, but that’s nothing a cup of tea and some salty snacks can’t fix.
If you are more likely to feel anxious than depressed, be extra careful with this strain. One puff too many could conjure up some paranoia, but just the right amount will give you a happy feeling while still focused and alert.
Smell and Taste of Ghost Train Haze
If you need to do some spring cleaning in the morning, we recommend choosing Ghost Train Haze. The fresh, lemon scent will perk you up in the morning and encourage you to grab some cleaning supplies. If you’ve got roommates, head outside – the smell is pretty potent. Despite a more citrusy scent, you won’t be able to hide this guy or convince your landlord that you’ve just got some lemon squares in the oven.
Ghost Train Haze also has a clean, almost minty taste. If you like a glass of OJ or even a tea in the morning, this strain will complement your morning beverage perfectly. The taste sticks in your mouth for quite a while, so have a drink by your side when you’re enjoying this strain.
