At Samhain, the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest and it is a time to formally honour the necessary role of death. It is also a time to welcome the darker half of the year and have some fun. Samhain isn’t lovingly referred to as the “Witches’ New Year” for nothing!
It a great time to get giddy and have some spooky Hallowe’en fun with friends, but also get serious and honour your ancestors and those who came before, or ask the spirits for guidance and wisdom. Whether you choose to celebrate with some spooktacular activities or pull out your tarot deck or Cup of Destiny and get into some heavy divination, you’ll need a strain that can bring the party but also do a 180 and assist in connecting you to the spiritual realm. We also recommend partaking if you are trying out the Fat Feminist Witch Spirit Box Spell. That’s where Ghost Train Haze comes in!
Although it is a sativa hybrid strain, Ghost Train Haze has the unique ability to act as more of an indica-dominant hybrid as it blends a euphoria with a heavy body stone. When used lightly, it can offer a calming relaxing feeling. Its wickedly potent and pungent smell radiates a sweet floral, pine, and citrusy scent and its large dark green, yet frosted buds remind one of the first frost coming.
The cerebral adventure that Ghost Train Haze delivers will definitely assist with any spell or ancestral work you may be doing. That being said, those newer to consuming cannabis should watch out as the THC level in this strain is quite high. Dose responsibility.
CARYOPHYLLENE: A terpene that is present in many herbs and spices, including black pepper, basil, and oregano. The amazing molecular structure of caryophyllene allows it to easily bind to CB2 receptors primarily located within our peripheral endocannabinoid system. Because of this, it comes with a host of potential medical benefits.
Also found in cinnamon leaves, Thai basils, cloves, and black pepper.
PINENE: one of the most common cannabis terpenes, which carries a distinct pine-scented bouquet.
Also found in pine trees, rosemary, dill, basil, and parsley.
HUMULENE: The same terpene that gives hoppy beers their unique taste and smell, humulene is both earthy and spicy. Besides hops, this terpene can be found in a large variety of plants and has been used in holistic medicinal practices.
Also found in basil, common sage, and cloves.
LIMONENE: Also found in the peels of citrus fruit, this very aromatic terpene is abundantly produced in the trichomes of many cannabis strains.
Also found in lemons, limes, oranges and other citrus fruits.
