Panama Red strain

Panama Red


Panama Red is a 100% Sativa cannabis strain popular in the 1960s. It is, however, still popular among cannabis users who prefer the pure Sativa effects of energizing, uplifting, and sparkling creativity. Panama Red is a Landrace strain native to Panama, Central America. Despite the low THC of about 16%, this cannabis strain is still favorable for the typical Sativa effects.

As you would expect of a Sativa plant, Panama Red grows slender and tall. It produces tight green buds and brightly colored narrow leaves. The leaves can show a mixture of gold, red, and purple colors, which defines its beauty. You will also notice a waxy and thick layer of resin covering the leaves.

Panama Red has one of the longest flowering periods in the cannabis world. The cycle ends in about 11-12 weeks and only provides an average yield. These were not a big deal during its time, but they are now a setback that we have high-yield and fast-maturing varieties. That is the reason for its rarity because many growers prefer other options. But if you are still determined to grow it, ensure you can provide maximum light hours and high soil nutrients and best grown outdoors.

Panama Red emits a very earthy, tropical aroma that is only enticing. When it burns up in smoke, it reveals pungent and dank notes. Some users also describe it as skunky. Panama Red is one of the few marijuana strains with a sweet licorice taste on the inhale and undertones of woodsy and grassy on the exhale. The taste is not overly strong!

The Pana Red has a cerebral high with strong euphoria, happiness, energy boost, and sociability. It also has other renowned Sativa effects such as uplifting, creativity boosting, and increasing appetite. Panama Red is the perfect weed strain for daytime use and pairs well with eating, watching, housework, art and crafts, and social gatherings.

Panama Red has many medicinal uses, including alleviating the symptoms of fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, ADD, migraines, mood swings, etc.

    1. Back in the late seventies early 80s, we cherished redbud from panama, had a friend that lived there, he died, the article was running high times with a big old red leaf on there, our red bud was totally red, and sweet sweet success, I would give my left nut to buy some seats

  1. I was stationed in the Panama Canal Zone when I was in the U.S. Navy from 1971 to 1974. Panama Red was definitely our weed of choice. It gave a great, relaxing high, and was good for partying in general. The first time I smoked it, I went to bed and had vivid hallucinations that I can still remember today. But I never did hallucinate on it after that. We rolled our joints with “Banana paper.” The yellow/brown paper was used to wrap fruit for the most part. It was shiny on one side and dull on the other.
