The Ghost Rider strain stems from the combination of Bull Rider (Sativa-dominant Hybrid) and Ghost OG (Indica-dominant Hybrid).
According to recent lab-test results, the Ghost Rider strain came back with very unique and impressive numbers that are noticeably high in CBD content — sure to make this a popular “go-to” strain for patients suffering from a wide range of ailments.
The Bull Rider strain in the genetics of Ghost Rider originates from San Diego and is considered to be a Sativa-dominant Hybrid. Additionally, it has been combined with Ghost OG, which is known to produce a instant mental buzz coupled with a powerful full-body trance sure to make even the highest tolerance patients feel fulfilled. Patients can expect lower amounts of CBD to make them feel alert or awake, where as higher doses typically makes patients feel more sedative effects. This allows the body to get the necessary rest it desperately needs.
How This High CBD Cannabis Strain May Affect Patients
“The aroma is not fruity, piney, or anything that distinguishable. Instead, this batch of Ghost Rider creates an extremely smooth smoke that has a slight sweetness to it. Each hit is accompanied by strong undertones of sugar on the exhale.”
The Ghost Rider strain has a very dry and musky smell to it, similar to strains derived from haze. The texture of these high CBD buds are drier than normal, most likely from the unique aging process required to boost the CBD percentages of a grow.
The effects of Ghost Rider are instant and noticeable, but definitely nothing like you would experience from a high THC strain. Instead, the high amounts of CBD translate to a full-body buzz that seems to leave the head completely untouched. The result is an effect that can only be described as a full-bodied force-field that provides significant pain relief without affecting your mind or thought process.
Why More People Focusing On Boosting CBD
When I saw this batch of Ghost Rider available at 18% CBD, I knew it was a must-try medication that would have a much different effect than the typical strains I choose to medicate with. A cannabis strain testing this incredibly high in CBD is rare, even with the wide varieties of cannabis available to patients today. This could be due to a variety of factors, most likely a lack of scientific research. In the past, the average grower would focus on boosting the THC content of the harvest. However, there is beginning to be a clear shift toward producing plants specifically high in CBD for its known medicinal benefits and cancer fighting abilities.
