OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/1971PanamaRed?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#1971PanamaRedlt;/agt;–Oakland-based Chemistry and the 420 Waldos once again invite you on a
most righteous journey back in time on 4/20 with this year’s 1971: A
Vintage Cannabis Experience
special release full-spectrum
vape cartridge.

Not familiar with the Waldos? They’re the group of wisecracking Northern
California teenagers who originally coined the term “420 Louis?”
(eventually dropping the “Louis”) back in the early 70s. And while a
handful of 420 origin stories exist, the Waldos’ version has been
verified by several credible news organizations over the years.

Here’s the abbreviated version: In 1971 the Waldos gathered everyday at
4:20 p.m. to hatch a plan. And there at the foot of the Louis Pasteur
statue on the campus of San Rafael High School in Marin County, they
embarked on a legendary mission to harvest a secret garden of coastal
grown grass and forever left their mark on Spaceship Earth.

The Waldos never found that mythical patch of weed, but don’t trip
because this year the Chemistry team jumped in their time machine to
bring back a legendary cannabis strain: Panama Red.

“Back in 1971, the Waldos were discovering stronger types of weed and
one of them was Panama Red,” said Waldo Dave Reddix. “Now almost 50
years later we’re revisiting the good times we had with this fantastic
strain back in the day.”

“Mention Panama Red in front of any baby boomer who enjoyed an
occasional youthful toke and their ears will perk up and a story (or
two) will follow,” said Trevar Mazza, one of Chemistry’s founders and
its Chief Marketing Officer. “We were so stoked to find this particular
strain—it’s a true old school classic.”

Chemistry manufactures hand-selected, small batches of unique cannabis
strains from some of Northern California’s best cultivation teams into a
variety of different full-spectrum cannabis products, including vape
cartridges. The company strives to stay true to the plant, taking only
what it gives during the proprietary manufacturing process. In other
words, Chemistry thoughtfully captures all the biomolecular goodness
responsible for lighting up your brain in interesting ways—and gently
refines out all the other stuff.

“What’s really interesting about this batch is its cannabinoid profile,”
said Paul Roethle, Chemistry’s other founder and its Chief Executive
Officer. “We were expecting to see elevated levels of CBD if the
genetics were a true Panama Red lineage, but were amazed to see the
profile come back with a nearly one to one ratio of CBD to THC.”

Most cannabis back in the ‘70s had much higher levels of CBD because
that particular molecule—same one that’s all the rage now—hadn’t been
removed via selective breeding techniques to achieve the crazy high
THC-dominant cannabis seen in today’s market. The seeds used to grow
Chemistry’s Panama Red were brought back by a Peace Corps volunteer in
the early ‘70s after a mission to the strain’s namesake. And this
particular phenotype was selected because of its balanced cannabinoid
profile.

“I really love the story this release animates,” said Mazza. “It’s a
stellar education on the history and evolution of this wonderful plant.”

“It gets you pretty high too,” added Waldo Dave. “Panama Red might not
be the strongest vape on the market, but don’t underestimate its
euphoric effects—it may just rob your head.”
