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.
Pink Panther has its origin from Spain from Eva Female Seeds cultivators. Its Pink Plant phenotype has its name from the color of the buds at the end of harvesting.

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.
