The Panama Red strain is one that has stood the test of time. In fact, this could be one of the oldest strains that CTU has ever covered. The strain will not disappoint in potency or effects so get ready!

The strain was one of the most if not the most potent when it was released. The demand for the strain skyrocketed after people realized weed didn’t just come in at 7 percent THC. Below will be all you need to know about the Panama Red marijuana strain. 

Panama Red Strain Genetics

Is Panama Red strain an Indica or Sativa?

Panama Red is far too old of a strain to have exact genetics. The strain has been around for 60 years and has stood the test of time. Think of this as the Holy Grail for hippies as this was a highly popular strain. 

Genetics used to be a bit of a mystery due to marijuana being illegal. Underground genetics were popular but are the reason why the lineage of certain strains is just an educated guess. Trying new strains regularly can allow you to build a smoking inventory for your day with a different strain for each occasion. 

Genetics of strains have improved with legalization. The collaboration between different cultivators has created some of the best strains on the market. Even new strains like Girl Scout Cookies has a murky history as not all cultivators want others to know they grow marijuana.

Panama Red Weed Strain Yield

The yield that you see in a strain will depend majorly on the strain being grown. Some strains can yield multiple pounds per plant and don’t even have a long flowering period.

Those looking for weight during their harvest might want to opt for another strain besides Panama Red. Amnesia Haze is one of the more popular strains to grow due to its potency and yield.

Panama Red Pot Strain Flowering Time

The flowering phase of Panama Red lasts 11 to 12 weeks. The buds are bright green with orange/amber hairs and white trichomes. There can be hues of purple depending on when you decide to harvest this strain. 

The process of figuring out which strains you enjoy growing can take time. It could take years if you grow outdoors as you likely only have one crop annually. Indoor growers can have a few plants growing at all times so they can breed multiple plants per year of the same strain. 

Perfecting a certain strain can allow you to start breeding for seeds of your strongest plants. The genetics that you use over time can be modified through your expertise. 

THC Content Of Panama Red Weed

Panama Red has a THC percentage of 16 to 22 percent. The strain used to be considered one of the most potent when it was originally bred in the 1960s. The high is energizing and this is a very social strain. Hanging out with friends and smoking a joint of Panama red is always considered a great time. 

Flavor And Aroma Of The Panama Red Strain

Expect the flavor to be of citrus and even a bit spicy. The aroma is a combination of citrus and earth. The terpenes included in this strain are Pinene, Myrcene, and Carene. 

Pinene has the classic aroma of pine needs. You can find relief from inflammation and even stress or anxiety. 

Myrcene is the terpene you want to look for when looking to calm your mind, body, and soul. The flavor of earth is predominant with this terpene. 

Carene has been shown to help reduce inflammation and even has been studied to improve memory. 

Price Of Panama Red Marijuana 

Panama Red is only going to cost around $35 to $40 for 1/8th of an ounce. The full ounce is going to cost $200 which when considering the potency of the strain, is a great deal. 

Prices will fluctuate depending on the dispensary and which cultivation company’s Panama Red product you decide to buy. Buying bulk is not recommended if you haven’t tried a strain before. The last thing you want is to have a large amount of a strain you don’t enjoy smoking. Take the time to shop around online to see which location of a dispensary has the best inventory and pricing. 

Panama Red Weed Seeds

Seed banks like Pacific Seed Bank and Ace Seeds both carry feminized seeds of Panama Red. Seed banks will not be legally able to send you marijuana seeds regardless of what they say. There are banks that will still send them but avoid legal issues by using other methods. 

Other options include trading clippings with another marijuana grower. The dispensary is sure to have a few packages of the seeds of this strain. Marijuana events are another place where you can acquire seeds that might be a bit rarer than Panama Red 

Medical Conditions This Strain Can Help

Marijuana is not something that you should discount as a medical tool. You want to try this as it is a natural remedy unlike a number of pharmaceuticals. Panama Red can help with the following medical conditions: 

  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Mood Swings
  • Fibromyalgia

The CBD content is not very high as CBD was not the focus when this strain was originally bred. The goal was to create a potent strain which was successful. You can always take a few CBD edibles if you are not feeling the relief that you expect from Panama Red. 

There are over 300,000 jobs in the cannabis industry. CTU trained me for one of them!
