Get Access to Pink Ghost Train Haze from the #1 Online Marijuana Dispensary in Canada
If you’re one of our more experienced cannabis friends looking for uplifting relief from symptoms of gastric irritability, depression or PTSD that will help you stay productive throughout your day, or would like a robust topical as an anti-inflammatory, get ready to level up with our Pink Ghost Train Haze AAAA hybrid.
Pink Ghost Train Haze — or PGTH for short — is the sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40) offspring from the marriage between Pink Kush and Ghost Train Haze.
Lovingly brought to you by Colorado company Rare Dankness Genetics, Pink Ghost Train Haze boasts a wild THC level between 27% and 29% — no foolin’ around.
The Pink Ghost Train Haze strain is serious business — in fact, it’s reportedly one of the most profound strains ever to be introduced to the cannabis market.
Indeed, its high-impact intensity earned it the honour of being named the “Most Potent Strain on Earth” in 2011 and again in 2014 by High Times Magazine.
It placed again at #5 for the “Strongest Weed Strain on Earth” list in 2015.
Now that we’ve got your attention, kick back, relax and read more about this beautiful strain that can take you from giggly, upbeat and creative, to laid back, relaxed and chill without being glued to the couch.
Buds are medium-sized, fluffy, bright green coated with a crystally layer of sparkly white trichomes. Grind up a bud for this aromatic extravaganza:
- Pungent, gassy aroma.
- Heavy pine and sour lemony, or sweet floral notes on the nose.
- Woody herbal upfront taste with a black peppercorn undertone.
To experience its ultimate flavour potential, Pink Ghost Train Haze could be best consumed in a vape or bong to eliminate the dirty, tar taste that smoking can sometimes bring.
For those who prefer the tried-and-true method of smoking your bud, you’ll still likely get to enjoy Pink Ghost Train Haze’s wonderfully complex flavour profile.
No matter your choice of consumption, West Coast Cannabis — the premier mail order marijuana dispensary for buying weed online in Canada — can set you up with everything you need from the get-go.
Get to know your bud a little better. Pink Ghost Train Haze’s terpene profile presents an impressive list of terpenes and effects.
The essential oil of cannabis sativa, this terpene has a widely varied flavour profile that is described as earthy and floral to citrusy and musky — or even spicy.
With caryophyllene as one of the dominant terpenes in Pink Ghost Train Haze, it’s reported as having a spicy warm smell on the nose with hints of black pepper in its aftertaste.
Caryophyllene is the only one known to stimulate your endocannabinoid system and reduce inflammation.
Otherwise, caryophyllene offers potential for a host of other therapeutic possibilities.
Along with its anti-inflammatory properties, it’s also considered an antioxidant that could successfully relieve the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Initial research studies have also shown that caryophyllene could help support patients experiencing anxiety and depression.
Although not considered the most dominant terpene in cannabis strains overall, pinene is probably the most common across all strains. It also happens to be the most abundant terpene found in pine trees, which is why your Ghost Train Haze bud smells and tastes like a pine forest floor.
Secreted through cannabis trichomes, pinene can also smell herby: think fresh basil, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Heaven!
Pinene is a terpene currently undergoing deeper research based on anecdotal evidence that it has anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and anti-anxiety properties and acts as a bronchodilator — in other words, it opens up the lungs’ airways and leads to clearer breathing.
Limonene. Found in the cannabis flower’s resin glands, limonene is an aromatic cannabis terpene that’s also found in citrus fruit rinds. When you sniff the citrusy, floral and sweet smell coming from your bud, that’s limonene in action.
And even though the citrus smell in Ghost Train Haze and many other strains is unmistakable, it’s actually only present in trace amounts: it generally makes up 2% or less of a flower’s dried weight.
Although more thorough cannabis research is in the works, studies limonene suggest its potential to ease the following symptoms:
- Gastric reflux
- Skin and mammary tumours (as seen in studies on lab rodents)
Found in most cannabis strains, this terpene is dominant on Ghost Train Haze and thus plays a lead role: Terpinolene is essential in defining the Pink Ghost Train Haze strain’s taste and flavour, and can make aromas feel quite complex.
Where pinene emanates pine, and limonene gives off citrus, terpinolene can embody all of these — and even some of its own.
Overall, it’s best described as “fresh,” and could be one reason why terpinolene is commonly added to soaps and perfumes.
And another bonus? Its scent could repel mosquitoes during our buggy Canadian springs and summers.
Myrcene. Another dominant terpene in our lovely Pink Ghost Train Haze strain, and is likely most responsible for the peppery aftertaste many report.
It also can make your herb taste “hoppy,” since myrcene is found in hops and contributes to peppery or spicy flavours found in some German beer.
Although terpene levels can vary between legal and legacy cannabis markets, myrcene makes up about 20% of the terpene profile in commercial cannabis strains.
Myrcene has been commonly found worldwide in folk medicines — like lemongrass tea, for example — for use as a sleep aid or muscle relaxant.
Despite this history, there are no clear-cut results from animal or human studies to clearly show a positive correlation between myrcene and sedation.
However, those who enjoy Pink Ghost Train Haze report relaxation as its main feature. Read more on the effects of consuming Pink Ghost Train Haze to determine how it could make you feel.
*Note that a strain’s “dominant” terpene simply refers to the highest terpene present in any particular flower, and these widely differ across specific strains. The terpenes listed here are found in all buds at varying levels.
