Baby boomers and those belonging to Generation X should remember the Pink Panther. However, that does not mean that the strain named after it was created in the early 60s. As a matter of fact, no one knows when it came around or how it came to be.
There are assumptions on its lineage, but to date, they are nothing more than that. One is that it is a phenotype of the Pink Plant. A couple of things support this theory. First, they are both mostly Sativa strains. Second, picking the name Pink Panther has to come somewhere.
There are also some people who think it is likely a phenotype of Blackberry. However, unlike the Sativa-dominant Pink Plant, this one is more balanced.
Regardless, the strain stays true to the genre of the film adaptation in that its very existence is shrouded in mystery. For both the recreational and medical users, though, it does not matter. What does is how it elevates the mood and how it lessens or even eliminate pains and aches.
Possessing as much as 24% THC, there is not an inch of doubt that it is not only potent but can also be overwhelming should one use too much. Although its seeds appear to be widely distributed with more than a few online retailers carrying it in their inventory, there is also a lack of information available.
Nonetheless, users can expect its effects to kick in fast and induce a cerebral euphoria. Some people note how it begins with a slight pressure between the eyes and the temple. As it spreads from the head down to the body, it leaves most people not only feeling uplifted but also euphoric.
Like typical Cannabis Sativa plants, its effects are mostly mental and behavioral. Often, it promoted a clear-headed high and may be accompanied by heightened sensitivity including having a sharper focus. As it also delivers an energy boost, it helps keep the users motivated and productive.
While Sativa-dominant, the Pink Panther still retains a little bit of its Indica heritage. Because of that, its users should feel a soothing sensation trickling into the body. As its effects spread, most people tend to feel relaxed but not lazy. In some ways, it also plays a role in keeping the psychedelic effects in check.
About the only time, the Pink Panther smells nice is after a bath. Not for the strain, though, as it emits a naturally sweet and fruity aroma of berry. It may be pungent, but most people are likely to find it pleasant.
Users who find its odor pleasant should also find it a delight to use. Its smoke has a refreshing blend of earth with a sweet note and the distinct taste of pine. As one exhales, it also leaves a fruity aftertaste that is reminiscent of grapefruit.
Pink Panther, like others, can cause users to have dry mouth and dry eyes. These are conditions that are likely to occur with the use of any cannabis. About the only difference between one to the next person is in the severity of its symptoms. Some people do not notice it while others dismiss it as it is mild anyway.
Other conditions that may occur include feeling anxious, dizzy, or having a mild headache.
While a few people who use the Pink Panther may end up with a mild headache, it is actually used by medical users to reduce the symptom of one. The key is in using only the right amount so that it does not cause one as an adverse reaction.
Besides beings used to manage headaches, the Pink Panther is also quite capable of providing relief from pains and aches.
Perhaps the biggest draw of the strain among the medical community is its exceptional mood-enhancing traits. People suffering from stress can use it for relief. Consequently, it helps those with depression too.
Finally, there are also reports of people finding it beneficial with some gastrointestinal issues such as nausea.
