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.
