What is Panama Red cannabis, and what are its effects?
Up until recently, obtaining Panama Red marijuana seeds has been close to impossible as it’s pretty much been a clone-only cannabis strain.
Fortunately, now you can get the feminized seeds of this pure landrace sativa strain that rose to prominence starting in the 1960s. As its name indicates, this legendary strain has its roots in Panama.
While it’s not quite as prominent of a sativa strain these days due to the existence of such a wide variety of sativa hybrids these days, this classic strain still has a solid reputation for providing users with a most enjoyable sativa high.
With THC content that doesn’t tend to exceed 17%, Panama Red weed is well-suited for usage by novice to veteran users alike without the likelihood of hitting you with any overwhelming effects.
Not surprisingly, Panama Red’s predominantly known for its cerebral effects, which provide users with a euphoric, psychedelic sativa high that hits quickly without leaving you bouncing off the walls. Its uplifting and invigorating effects provide that extra jolt of energy that can boost one’s sense of vitality and out-of-the-box thinking to help inspire you in your pursuit of creative activities.
Not only is Panama Red an exceptional choice for wake-and-bake moments, but it also makes for an ideal option in social settings or as a pre-game upper when you’re about to head out for the evening with friends.
Interestingly, even though the Panama Red strain is a pure sativa, its lively wave of energy eventually tapers off into a blissfully relaxing and mellow high.
What are the therapeutic benefits of Panama Red cannabis?
Like most marijuana strains, Panama Red’s properties are not just limited to being used for positive recreational purposes. It is also an excellent strain for medical users to turn to for various mental and physical health ailments.
This classic landrace strain’s uplifting effects make it a popular strain amongst patients who are seeking a mental shift and temporary relief from chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and other mood-related disorders. Some medical users also say that its lucid cerebral effects serve to help those suffering from ADHD be able to focus and concentrate more easily.
In terms of Panama Red’s ability to deliver pain relief, it has the potential to alleviate chronic pain, headaches, migraines, inflammation, and nausea. In addition, its energetic effects may be helpful to those dealing with fatigue.
What does Panama Red taste like?
Panama Red’s terpene profile gives it a uniquely delicious blend of scents and flavors. Its aroma profile consists of a pungent earthy aroma with subtle, complementary accents of sweet and tangy grapefruit.
How do I grow Panama Red cannabis seeds?
While Panama Red can be cultivated both indoors and out, it is a rather difficult strain to grow, which means it’s not the best choice for inexperienced amateur growers to attempt to cultivate. However, since Pacific Seed Bank only sells feminized seeds, the chances of ending up with male plants, which are mainly only useful to commercial growers and breeders who are wanting to create a new strain, etc., is only about 10%.
To grow Panama Red outside, it will require a sub-tropical climate. As such, some would argue that it is better suited to indoor growing or being nurtured in a greenhouse setting.
What do Panama Red cannabis plants look like?
Panama Red matures into tall, slender plants that produce nuggets that are green in color and surprisingly dense flowers, despite being a pure sativa. Its vibrant buds also offer a resplendent array of red, purple, and golden amber hues and are thickly coated in a heavy layer of waxy and resinous trichomes.
When to harvest your Panama Red cannabis plant
In terms of yields, Panama Red provides outdoor and indoor growers with above-average-sized harvests.
When grown inside, this sativa should render approximately 450 grams, or almost 16 ounces, per square meter in 10-12 weeks.
Meanwhile, Panama Red’s outdoor harvest is a bit larger at more than 17.5 ounces per plant (or 500 grams) and should be ready for the taking sometime around the end of October.
