Panama Gold is a combination of BCO Pablos Gold (Colombian Gold/Colombian Gold x UK Cheese x Panama Red) with a Colombian Green leaning pheno as the mother and a supremely branched colorful stud with Panama Red stems and expressions and leaves which turn golden white to many fall colors reminiscent of the very best Colombians and Panama Red expressions from the past. Red expressions have been coming through in the progeny of this Pablos Gold male and finished flowers may lean toward the Panama Red side, Colombian Gold and many phenos may express in varying degrees from either side of the spectrum. This is old school cannabis at its finest but with a modern twist to allow for shorter flowering/finishing times without sacrificing the best attributes expressed in the genetics. If you want original Colombian highs and yearn for Colombian or Panama genetics or you remember smoking the best imports from the 60’s and 70’s then Panama Gold is exactly what you’re looking for. This strain is exactly as advertised and should be jumped on as not to be left out.
Panama Gold phenos will range from highly resinous green phenos with compact flowers on a Christmas tree structure to more lanky bushes that form beautiful red, maroon, orange, yellow, purple flowers that grow along the branches in an ascending growth pattern with many small colorful colitas growing the length of each branch. This is a true work of art and patience is needed to grow Panama Gold to potential. This means that flowering time may take many months to finish properly, depending on phenotype. Respect for its old school roots is required and educating on the growth of equatorial strains indoors, outdoors or in greenhouses in necessary to bring the potential out in this strain. This is not to say there isn’t fast finishing phenos, but grower should be warned the potential of the longer flowering types. This line is for lovers of exotic sativas and for those who want to experience a true sativa experience. A balanced organic soil and repotting should be used to control height and use of normal hybrid fertilizing and feeding programs should be refrained from while growing this line or yields or other fussy expressions can produce unwanted outcomes and poor yields. Patience is needed while growing any pure sativa, allowing the flowers to grow to full potential with good amounts of light and root space should be considered before growing this strain. Those who are inexperienced with growing longer flowering strains should research growing them beforehand so you’re better prepared to finish the strain. Those who decide to grow Panama Gold will be rewarded with exotic highs and an enhancement high type which is a rarity in most today’s strains.

Also, consuming edibles will detract from the best expressions of sativa strains like Panama Gold.
