Halloween is a celebration of all things spooky. Rooted in the ancient Celtic festival Samhain, which marked the end of the harvest and the beginning of the darker part of the year, it is believed that the veil between the physical world and the spiritual world (or the living and the dead) is at its thinnest on this day.
If ever your ancestors were going to pay you a visit, it would be on Halloween, or so traditions would have us believe. So appeasing the spirits at this time has been a long-held custom, involving leaving food out or making a place at the table for them. Nowadays, we have trick or treat, costume-wearing, and pumpkin carving.
For the cannabis lover, introducing some ghoulish strains to your garden or grow room could be the perfect way of getting into the spirit of things! Embrace the thinning of the veil and elevate yourself to new horticultural heights with the following spookiest cannabis strains…..
Purple Ghost Candy
Seedsman’s Purple Ghost Candy is the sativa dominant offspring of Ghost OG and one of the very best recent Purple cuts – Candyland Purple. It is a beautiful, tall-growing plant whose leaves and flowers glisten because of its heavy trichome load. A purple hue develops as the plant matures, which, combined with the trichomes’ white shine, has the plant emanating a haunting silver glow. Purple Ghost Candy produces a generous and tasty harvest and a potent high. The great resin content makes it ideal for extract lovers.
Another frosty-looking strain, White Widow, barely needs an introduction. Originating in the mid-1990s, this strain has maintained its worldwide popularity because of its champion genetics and hard-hitting high.
Bred by crossing a Brazilian sativa strain with a highly resinous South Indian indica to create potency above all else, it delivers intense physical relaxation combined with an uplifting sativa effect. If your house is scattered with cobwebs, spiders, and ghouls this Halloween, why not bring our White Widow feminised seeds into the mix.
Ghost Train Haze
This is a ghost train you definitely want to get on if you enjoy going to the edge. Bred from the Original Ghost OG crossed with Nevil’s Wreck, one of the Rare Dankness’s most popular and potent strains. Covered in frosty trichomes with sour and hazy aromas, cannabinoid tests reveal a 25% + THC content. Ghost Train Haze is not for the novice or faint-hearted, truly one of the spookiest cannabis strains!
Pure Ghost OG
Pure Ghost OG is a successful attempt to breed the ‘clone-only Ghost OG by reverse breeding, with the result being a strain that is totally identical to the clone mother in 80% of plants. This has spicy, citrusy aromas and is highly potent, with THC levels being over 20%. Ghost OG clone is a legend, so if you can only get a hold of the clone, do it! If not, Cannaventure’s Pure Ghost OG Fem is the next best thing.
Phantom OG Feminised
Barney’s Farm Phantom OG is a generous yielding, super-tasting strain with soaring, stimulating effects. Bred by crossing Phantom Cookies with an OG Kush, it is an easy-to-grow sativa-dominant hybrid with a relatively short flowering period. It is a colourful plant with buds that turn purple significantly if nighttime temperatures drop towards the end of its life. Phantom OG has a unique flavour that mixes wild berries with walnuts, and an uplifting cerebral high, making it a firm favourite among the spookiest cannabis strains.
