From early on in the Work Sativa review series, I wanted to sample Ghost Train Haze by Verano. I’d seen the strain listed on the menu a couple times but it quickly disappeared. While picking up some other products for review during my visit to BEYOND/HELLO Dispensary in Bloomington-Normal shortly after it opened, I noticed inside the glass case an eighth of Ghost Train Haze, so I added it to my checkout. The next morning during work, I medicated with the strain and found it to be everything I am looking for in a Work Sativa.
Ghost Train Haze (80%/20% sativa) is a cross between Ghost OG & Neville’s Wreck and boasts a 23.983% THC levels. The bright green buds are frosted with trichomes, as if sugared, and filled with orange pistils. Though the buds are relatively small, they are dense and can be broken up easily. The aroma is a pungent citrus blend on the front end and a sweet floral note on the back end. The flavor follows the aroma. The citrus flavor ranges between lemon and orange on the front of the hit, and on the back it settles into notes of floral and pine.
All this leads toward a great strain, but does it stand up to the Work Sativa test for an energetic, focused, and strong high that allows me to stay medicated and get work done? The answer is a resounding, YES!
The blissful but intense high hits rather quickly, but I am able to stay focused despite the strong psychedelic affects. The energetic buzz starts with the head high and then the body (if in motion) but later in the buzz, the body relaxes, which is my favorite combination. A strong energetic head high with a calming body buzz. The energetic and intense head high is more suitable for veteran smokers than novice smokers, especially those who suffer from anxiety.
Ghost Train Haze more than qualifies for Work Sativa series and is currently in my top three all-time Work Sativa strains. It will stay in my work rotation as long as it’s available.
