Information about Holy Ghost:
Of all the things that one could be, being a ghost is not an option. After all, survival is a primal instinct. So, in naming one hybrid holy Ghost, think of it more like users embarking on a spiritual roller coaster ride.
It is unclear who the original breeder was, but the consensus is that it is a four-way cross.
More or less, Holy Ghost is a balanced hybrid with regards to structure. Its effects, though, do lean towards the Sativa. A big part of the reason why are two exceptional strains. One is the award-winning Amnesia Haze. The other is Durban Poison and its higher-than-average CBD. In adding the Indica genes of Satori and the tenacious Pitbull, the resulting offspring became a tamer version of both ends of the spectrum.
On paper, it appears to be a vicious hybrid with up to 28% THC. There is nothing holy about the ungodly potency it packs. Used in moderation, Holy Ghost is not at all overbearing. The trick is to know and stay well within the personal tolerance level.

Soon after using it, Holy Ghost wastes no time and comes rushing into the mind flooding it with new thoughts and ideas. It does so by inducing mental clarity while unlocking the creative side of the brain. Typical of Sativa, it ushers in a reinvigorating feeling that can power up users on physical activities.
It does not take long, too, before the behavioral changes become evident. As an overwhelming sense of happiness sets in, most people at this point tend to be more friendly or sociable. It is not uncommon for some to laugh at just about anything.
Meanwhile, it takes a little bit longer before the body high starts to manifest. As if on cue and to prevent the mental stimulation from going over the edge, a soothing sensation starts drifting down the spine and towards the extremities. Used in small concentration, the relaxing attributes of Holy Ghost serves to complement the Sativa effects without hindering one from having a fun time.
However, if one were to use a bit too much, it would result in a buzzing cerebral high in which thoughts can pop in randomly at lightning speed. If that alone is not enough to cripple one, then wait until the sedating body high takes over. Of course, this is not to say things could get out of hand. It is more like the hybrid leaving users with a foggy mind while drowning in eternal bliss.
The smoke of Holy Ghost is not likely to cause watery eyes, but its compounds can cause dryness and most especially on the throat. Aside from that, it may also cause a slight headache or dizziness.
A significant difference between this hybrid and all its parent strains is that it is less likely to induce anxiousness or paranoia. However, that is not to say it will not occur. It will to some people who end up overusing it.
Holy Ghost blesses people with comfort and relief. Its ability to induce psychological and behavioral changes, for instance, helps people battle stress and depression. In almost all cases, the euphoric high and physical relaxation it delivers is more than enough to wipe out negativities.
It contains analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, Holy Ghost can offer a reprieve from headaches, muscle spasms, and numerous other body aches.
Cultivating Holy Ghost is a joy if only one could get ahold of this elusive hybrid. The plant thrives well indoors and outdoors. It might be a little picky, but nothing that experienced growers cannot handle. Although the psychedelic high leans towards the Sativa, the structure is typical of Indica. It means that it does not grow too tall and tends to be bushy.
On average, it takes between 8 to 9 weeks for the flowers to develop. When it does, each square meter of the plant can have a yield of 10 to 12 ounces.
The flowering typically starts on the first days of October. Give it time, and the reward comes later with some 12 ounces of buds per plant.
