The Panama Red strain is an old school pure Sativa from the Panama region that was extremely popular between 1960 to the early 90′s. Since then, the genetics have died off slowly as most growers have switched to other Sativa strains that have faster grow cycles (to have more profitable grows). Panama Red’s flowering time is roughly 11-13 weeks which is longer than the most other popular Sativa strains.

Panama Red is known to create a mellow head-high that is very relaxing and slightly psychedelic. Considered by many as the laughing gas of the 70′s, this Sativa is sure to bring a smile to all who medicate with it.
Growers should realize patients prefer all types of medication — especially throwbacks that have sentimental value. Not to mention the extremely smooth smoke session Panama Red provides your taste buds.
It’s a shame this medical marijuana strain isn’t as ubiquitous as it once was but it makes sense why it growers choose strains that perform better and grow faster. Panama Red seems to be one of those strains that if you want to get your hands on a bunch of it, you need to find some good seeds, take your time, and grow it yourself.
