The Ultimate Ghost Train Haze Strain Review

Among the most intense strains in the cannabis universe is the Ghost train haze, something the novice smokers might steer clear of at the moment. In the 2012 edition of the High Times magazine, the strain was named the “Most Potent Strain” in the world, and for a great reason.

This Sativa-dominant hybrid packs a punch, mainly due to its extremely high THC concentration.

Get to know more about this most potent cannabis strain on the earth.

Overview and Genetics

The Ghost train haze is a masterpiece when it comes to potency. It is an intensely potent strain, which is a child product of crossing the Sativa Nevil’s Wreck strain and the Ghost OG hybrid strain. What came from both highly potent parents is the world’s strongest cannabis strain that contains as much as 28% THC levels.

Clinically, the Ghost train haze is a Sativa-dominant strain with 80% Sativa and 20% Indica, although some classify it as a pure Sativa cannabis strain. What is even more confusing that, especially in higher dosages, this strain acts more like an Indica-dominant hybrid strain.


When it comes to appearance, the Ghost train haze can simply be described as frosty white, more like its name. The sugar leaves feature a bright and forest green hues covered with crystal-like vibrant trichomes to give it a freshly fallen snow appearance. It also comes with tiny and curling orange pistils that pop in color and adding a sense of extra texture. The buds of the strain are potent and dense, and often weighs more than its look and size.


In terms of the taste, the Ghost train haze offers extensive notes of flavor. As soon as it hits the tongue, you can taste a pleasing citrus flavor, which often goes as distinct as a sweet lemon taste.


The Ghost train haze has a very distinct smell, that once a bag is even slightly opened, the smell of the strain will fill the room. It has a wildly rich, pungent, and potent aroma that takes up whatever space it is in, which is not an appealing strain option if you want to smoke in discreet.

However, the distinct smell might be appealing to purist cannabis smokers that embrace this type of pungent aroma. It has a reeking flower and citrus fragrance that provides the senses with a naturally sweet and floral smell, quite similar to its taste.


The strain can be found in a lot of states in the US, but it is largely popular around Maryland, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado areas.

Compared to other Sativa-dominant strains, the Ghost train haze doesn’t focus on providing energizing effects.

In lower doses, you will feel deep internal awareness but might result in paranoia and anxiety when taken in larger doses than necessary.

While the Ghost train haze strain is largely resistant to common diseases in cannabis plants, it’s not suitable to cultivate for everyone. To get a successful yield during harvest, you need to have an experience with cannabis cultivation as growing this strain will require some technical capabilities.

The strain largely prefers a dry and hot outdoor environment to produce glorious yields. And while it can still thrive indoors, growing the strain in this environment can be a bit complicated since it will require you to constantly monitor the humidity of the room, proper ventilation, and check the presence of powdery mildew and mold.

What Users Are Saying

Although it is not widely recommended for novice smokers because of its extremely high THC levels, some beginner smokers have tried the strain in small doses and raves about how very comfortable the process was. Although most of them say it can cause a hangover later on, especially for those with low THC tolerance, the effects and potency of the strain are spot on.
