Panama Red Strain — A Superstar From the ’60s

It might not be hugely popular these days, but back in the 1960s, the Panama Red strain was a world-famous favorite. This landrace sativa hails from — you guessed it — Panama and delivers a mellow yet magical, happiness-inducing, vitality-boosting high. Suitable for both new tokers and experienced cannabisseurs alike, Panama Red will leave you feeling mentally stimulated, creative, talkative, euphoric, physically relaxed, and emotionally at peace.

      Panama Red Strain Summary

      Use Panama Red to get yourself out of bed or as a midday pick-me-up when you need to level your mood, spark some creativity, alleviate pain, or focus on your to-do list. If this mellow strain floats your boat, and you’d like to try something similar, check out Haze (another strain from the 60s), Durban Poison (a landrace sativa from Africa), and Aceh (a landrace sativa from Indonesia). For something with a considerably zippier high, try Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, or Super Lemon Haze.
