Looking for a seriously powerful strain? Discover Ghost Train Haze and the terpenes that give it such otherworldly flavors and effects.
Today we’re celebrating Ghost Train Haze and the terpenes that make it so freaking intense. This award-winning strain has been making waves ever since it first hit the scene. Its floral, earthy sweetness will enchant your senses, but the hazy effects are almost supernatural. Let’s just say there’s a reason it’s known for being one of the strongest strains on earth.
As a cross between Neville’s Wreck and Ghost OG, this sativa-dominant strain is known for being a serious heavy-hitter. That’s not just some marketing quip either. It’s actually a two-time winner of the High Times annual Strongest Strains on Earth award and its THC levels have been known to exceed twenty-five percent. So yeah, this train isn’t for the faint of heart.
Before we jump in too deep, we want to remind everyone that we offer both botanical and cannabis-derived terpene blends. We work hard to isolate the specific terpene profiles of popular cannabis strains so both cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from them. Read on and discover all the spooky details about this intensely powerful strain and the terpenes that make it so haunting.

Ghost Train Haze | Get to Know Your Favorite Strain
We get it. With a strain like this you’re just DYING for details. Here’s the short version of what we’re covering today.
- While the overall terpene profile is composed of over 30 different isolates, the dominant terpenes (Terpinolene, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Alpha-Phellandrene) dictate the aroma, flavor, and effects of this strain.
- These terpenes are responsible for the flavor (piney and gassy, yet beautifully citrus) and aroma (floral with hazy herbal notes).
- It’s also these terpenes that dictate the overall effects. The actual strain is intensely cerebral with an equally heavy body buzz. It has the energetic euphoria of most sativas, but there’s a haziness to this strain that novice users may not be prepared for.
- Even without cannabinoids, Ghost Train Haze terpenes can have profound effects. On their own, this blend is less like a speeding freight train and more like a gentle trolley ride.
- Ghost Train Haze terpenes are potent and popular, making them applicable for products in a variety of industries. From THC distillate, CBD products, and even non-cannabis food & beverage products, Ghost Train Haze creates otherworldly experiences that consumers are drawn to again and again.

Ghost Train Haze Terpene Profile
On top of the previous awards we mentioned, Ghost Train Haze also won 1st in the 2014 High Times Cannabis Cup US Sativa and 2nd place in the 2013 High Times Cannabis Cup for Medical Sativa. So, not only is this strain just downright spooky, it has the awards to back it up. But what about those terpenes?
Terpenes and cannabis have a truly beautiful relationship. The short version? While it’s the cannabinoids that actually get you high, it’s the terpenes that determine the overall flavor, aroma, and effects. That’s why some strains make you want to clean your entire house, while others make you want to drool on the couch for hours. The terpenes are also what create that Ghost Train Haze flavor that’s both piney and gassy, yet beautifully citrus with herbal and floral notes.
The most dominant isolate in this profile is Terpinolene. Most strains have small amounts of this terpene, but heavy hitters like Jack and Ghost Train Haze are flush with terpinolene. This cyclic monoterpene is known for its intense cerebral effects plus antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Its aroma is herbal with subtle notes of citrus and pine.

Myrcene gives this strain a smooth sweetness that perfectly weaves all the various aromatic notes together. Found in mangos, lemongrass, hops, and thyme, myrcene has an aroma that’s fruity and earthy. It also lends Ghost Train Haze effects like pain-relief, anti-inflammation, and sedation.

Beta-Caryophyllene makes up another big chunk of this terpene profile and is partially responsible for its powerful body relaxation effects. Found in black pepper, cloves, hops, and even cinnamon, this isolate lends Ghost Train Haze an earthy kick and the subtle spiciness indicative of many Haze strains. It’s also one of the only non-cannabinoids that can activate cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This makes its anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties very potent.

While it only makes up roughly 5-10% of the overall terpene profile, Alpha-Phellandrene gives Ghost Train Haze important aromatic notes and effects. This monoterpene has a flavor that’s reminiscent of both citrus and pepper. It’s a powerful pain-reliever and can be found in various pine, conifers, and rosemary.
Alpha-Pinene also makes an appearance, albeit a small one. No surprise here, but this isolate lends Ghost Train Haze turpentine-like notes of pine and wood. It also provides some of the cerebral, creative effects this strain is known for.
While there are over thirty other isolates that make up this complex blend, these five are the main contributors to its unique flavor, aroma, and effects. Speaking of effects…
Ghost Train Haze Effects
If you get your hands on the actual strain, prepare for a damn near psychedelic experience. Ok, no. It’s not literally psychedelic. However, the intensity of this strain can’t be stressed enough.
The full cannabis-infused Ghost Train Haze experience is intensely cerebral with an equally heavy body buzz. While it has the energetic euphoria of most sativas, there’s a haziness to this strain that novice users may not be prepared for. Basically, unless you know what you’re doing, stick close to home until you know how this strain will treat you.
If you’re smoking actual flowers, you’ll notice an intense, energetic high soon after you exhale that first cloud of hazy, sour smoke. Waves of heady euphoria will lift you up, but the heavy body relaxation will keep you just grounded enough not to be carried away completely. So, even though your mind will be bursting with creative energy, it’s recommended to use it sparingly if you have a long to-do list.
Novice users may consider keeping alternative CBD products on hand to help combat any unexpected paranoia. A water bottle wouldn’t hurt either, as lovers of this strain admit it tends to come with some wicked cottonmouth. We weren’t kidding when we said the effects were intense.
Even without cannabinoids, Ghost Train Haze terpenes can have profound effects. On their own, this blend is less like a speeding freight train and more like a gentle trolley ride. You’ll definitely still go somewhere, but the effects will be milder, more easily tamed, and not psychoactive in the least.
How Can YOU Use Ghost Train Haze Terpenes?
Our botanically sourced Ghost Train Haze terpenes are perfect for both cannabis and non-cannabis products. Obviously, combining this blend with cannabinoids will pump up the effects. However, non-cannabis products promoting an energetic, euphoric mood with relaxing body effects will greatly benefit from this blend. While it’s no surprise that Ghost Train Haze is a hit in vape and distillate, its flavor and effects make it applicable in several industries.
Consumers already reach for this strain for pain relief, mood elevation, and to improve appetites. With that in mind, a topical with Ghost Train Haze terpenes could help provide targeted relief for chronic pain. Conversely, the uplifting effects of this strain would be popular in CBD products for consumers who find the full THC version of this strain too intense.
Just imagine—you’ve got a busy day, but could really use a lift. Whether you’re reaching for a Ghost Train Haze infused CBD edible, vape, beverage, or aromatherapy product, your day is about to get a whole lot better. With a bit of ingenuity, terpenes can be used to create truly one-of-a-kind products.
