Acapulco Gold

Sativa Dominant Hybrid 80% Sativa / 20% Indica

THC: 19% - 24%

This famous sativa-dominant hybrid, which has an 80:20 sativa/indica ratio, combines a powerful head high with a soothing body high that last for at least two hours. Acapulco Gold originated in Acapulco, Mexico, but no one seems to remember who first grew it or what parent strains were used. Acapulco Gold is pretty hard to find because it's difficult to grow indoors, but it's popular throughout the United States, especially in warmer climes. It's best used to treat anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, but it's also good for insomnia and headaches, as well as some mental disorders. This strain can be especially powerful, with THC levels as high as 24%. It has a distinct earthy flavor and aroma, with a taste of chestnut and tealeaves. As with most strains, the most likely adverse effects are dry eyes and dry mouth. Paranoia and dizziness are also possible but less common. Acapulco Gold is most popular in the Western United States, the Upper Midwest, and the desert Southwest. It often costs more than other strains because of its potency and the beautiful gold-tinged appearance of its bud.

Very great euphoria on this one. Had great conversations with this one. Newbies, take it slow in this one.


Remembering old school days of it being a gold color mostly. Gave it a try, Well it let me know it was there. ☺. Then mellows after 20 min. The taste has a hint of old school which brings back memories. Still a good choice for midday pain and stress relief.😎


The most wonderful and delightful experince I have had it is a gift to humanity love light and laughter


Definitely don't have any problem remembering AG. In the early 70's we went to what was called the Under ground in Tucson and found even papers that were labeled AG rolling papers. I really miss that era!


This stuff was world famous back in the 60's and 70's when it was around in NYC, but like the Colombian gold, nowhere to be found in over 30 years!! Oh, how I miss Acapulco gold!! The sweetest tasting herb EVER!! And a wonderful. happy, fun, enjoyable high!! Thx to that Mexican sunshine!! I'll put it up against any " strain " out there now, and it will be a hands down winner!! Remembering this stuff makes me realize why I so dislike indoor grown weed. Absolutely delicious!!!


Bad Ass Weed! Smoked it once in the Army in 1975, none finer...


Awesome strain. Grew some, and it's the best ever. Definitely takes away pain, relieves depression, and leaves you with energy. LOVE IT. I'm amazed at how powerful it is.


I loved Acapulco gold. The taste, the resinous roach, the high, the calm before the storm- fastbret 1968


Figured it would've been more impressive than what it was.


Picked up a gram of this strain by Dream City 12/4/16. Harvested in October, 2016; consumed 12/8/16 in a cheap plastic bong. Packaging notes: - d-limonine 3.38%, Terpinoline .17%, Terpenes 3.55%. - Pesiticides - Azamax, Pest Out, Regalia, Safer Soap, Zerotol, Clonex. After tracking the lineages of many of my favorite strains (Banana Kush, Strawberry Cheesecake, Lavender) back to this famous strain, I was very happy to find some available near me. At a total potence of 18.1%, I wasn't really expecting a moonshot, but this stuff definitely packs that much of a punch. The aroma is a fragrant sweetness with hints of citrus. The taste is full of that citrus and a chemically aftertaste. Within a few minutes of finishing off the first bowl, all of my cares melted away. Suddenly, everything funny was hilarious. With a pleasant tingling sensation settling behind my eyes, it's time to get a couple of chores done and settle in to watch some hilarious British antics.
