Pamelina is an interesting Indica-dominant hybrid strain that’s a little mysterious. There is an abundant amount of misinformation about this strain, some reputable sources even claim that this plant is an evenly balanced hybrid. Pamelina was first bred by infamous growers at Rare Dankness Seeds located in Colorado, USA. These incredibly brilliant minds decided to cross the Forum cut of GSC with their proprietary Rare Dankness #2 to create a potent Indica-hybrid with powerful effects. Their success meant the creation of Pamelina, which should only be consumed in the evening hours as it’s quite the sedative strain. Because of the lack of clarity surrounding this strain, high-quality test data regarding the terpene and THC concentration in this flower is impossible to find.
Pamelina buds are almost always olive or forest green in color, with a number of winding red hairs that travel around and throughout the bud. They’re often coated in a layer of trichomes so thick that the green in the bud is hard to see - all you can spot are the white crystals. Depending on the harvest and trim, you might also encounter some deep purple sugar leaves which adds a bit of texture and depth in color. They often take the classic Indica shape, resembling spades and hearts, and are medium in size. However, some growers have managed to produce some incredibly dense oversized buds. These flowers smell like sweet fruit mixed with sour berries and spicy earth. With the taste being quite similar, it leaves a sour berry aftertaste with a hint of musty earth.
Like most Indica strains, the effects of Pamelina are largely body-based. However, with Pamelina not being a pure-Indica, it has some of the heady Sativa effects hidden in the fold. The high begins with a calming wave of relaxation that washes over you, without feeling too-heavy. Although you might be inclined to find a comfy spot to curl up, you won’t feel out of it or sleepy at all. In this state, your physical pains will all but disappear leaving you nothing but physical relaxation. At the same time, the little bit of Sativa will creep into your brain and quickly lift your spirits. While you might be laying on the sofa, you’ll find yourself laughing at every joke in that episode of SNL or cackling to the jokes your friends are throwing around. You won’t find a single shred of negativity, doubt, or anxiety anywhere in your brain after toking on Pamelina. Some have reported that this strain gives them the munchies, so best be off preparing a snack to go with your smoke. This strain has been utilized time and time again by medical patients and recreational smokers to alleviate symptoms of depression, lack of appetite, nausea, pain, and anxiety!
