Acapulco Gold Strain Overview
Acapulco Gold is a Sativa-dominant Hybrid understood for the gold color of and/or its green brownish buds. This strain can be said to create a strong cerebral high that raises the disposition of one without creating overpowering feelings of happiness. The cerebral high combines with a still body high for a relaxing experience. Stress and light paranoia also have been reported.
Sufferers of illnesses including PTSD or General Anxiety Disorder use this form to find relief from anxiety and tension. Those coping with melancholy use it to lift their disposition. Long-term aches and pains may also be alleviated.
With Mexican Sativa as its parent, this strain is popular. Growing it inside is proving to be tricky for producers. This makes the form more difficult to find as their operations transfer indoors. When grown inside, the form blooms for 70-75 days. Outside, plants are prepared for harvest by mid-October.

Acapulco Gold made a really official entry into our collective consciousness in the 1965 edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. The publication purportedly describes, “a particular level of marijuana growing just in the area of Acapulco that generally comes at somewhat higher costs or in short weights and has a potency surpassed by few of the green varieties.”
From there this Mexican wonder drug burst in western pop culture, inspiring the likes of Robert Plant, John Lennon, the group Rush, David Crosby, and more lately MF Doom and Devin the Dude. It’s also earned reference on SNL in 1975, and has been used as the name of Edwin Corley’s novel picturing corporate America’s groundwork for legal pot.
A concoction of tropical fruits evokes impressions of an organization that is edible. Notes of haze that is sour lurk in the backdrop.
While Barney’s merchandise contains stripes of reddish brown, is certain to change by batch, the first was known for its earthy green buds and golden rimmed leaves. Tote allure will be high no matter where you get it.
Marginally compact buds… with a subtle spongy quality.
