Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, “ First bred by Rare Dankness, Ghost Train Haze is a sativa cross of Ghost OG and Neville’s Wreck. Unlike typical sativas, Ghost Train Haze grows dense buds blanketed in white, crystal-capped trichomes. With a sour citrus and floral aroma, Ghost Train Haze delivers a potent dose of THC to knock out pain, depression, and appetite loss, but patients prone to anxiety should steer clear of this heavy-hitter. Low doses are conducive to concentration and creativity, but you may notice some cerebral haziness as you smoke more. 

From the OCS website, ” Eldo is a sativa-dominant strain with medium THC potency potential and a terpene profile featuring a sour citrus and floral aroma. Eldo by UP Cannabis is grown indoors in rockwool in Niagara, Ont., where its small-batch flowers are machine-trimmed and hand-groomed to preserve the integrity of its trichomes. The plants are grown using state-of-the-art lighting, pre-dry leaching, best-in-class water filtration and only top cola is used in order to provide the best-looking buds.

Eldo (proprietary phenotype of Ghost Train Haze) by UP (Hexo)

Our first introduction to UP was Gems, which was White Shark, a high CBD strain that did not resonate with us.  Base on that one experience, we avoided UP products as overpriced and under delivering products.  Had we know Gems was White Shark, we would not have tried that strain.   The dramatic price reduction of Eldo attracted our attention and we found a very good grower in UP.   Eldo, a phenotype of Ghost Train Haze, by UP is a winner especially at the lower price.  This is a dreamy version of Ghost Train Haze without the anxiety and buzziness.
