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.

With all the crappy to average dispensary medicine around Southern AZ, I was hoping this would be the one that would stand out since you don't see it around much. Definitely better than the average around here, but not as strong as I expected. Or I just smoke too much.. Flavor reminded me of a good sinsemilla from the 80s which don't mind. If you have stuff to do around the house, this strain will give ya a little ambition, not a couch lock strain. Wish I had better memories of the AG of the late 70s early 80s, but since I don't I'll just say give it a try if you find it. Not the greatest of all time, but pretty decent medicine. I doubt you'll be disappointed. Cheers...


Ok it still is the best all around weed relax high sleep taste all the best


Acapulco Gold was introduced to us a few years ago. At that time I had the misfortune of going from a very healthy athletic man to a survivor of several lethal accidents in my line of work in petro/chem industries. From electrocution I was never supposed to survive, exposed to deadly chemicals, and a fall that shattered 4 discs in my lower back, that are I operable. I never used any type of drugs. Now my only option for severe chronic pain is prescribed opiates. I found that 2 inhalations of the gold was beneficial in so many ways it is impossible to write it all out. It actually brought clarity back into my life. Helped in so many ways. Even though I still have sexual drive,it intensifies in a beautiful way. My loss of appetite was fixed after a few minutes of intake. Unfortunately I am unable to locate. I would be happy to locate some legally. I knowmy doctor would prescribe. Broken body.


PIease read my Rockstar kush review for my history...briefly...39 years using cannabis....35 yrs every day use Have Licence Producer named Whistler Medical Marijuana that is off the charts....many strains 25% or over which is a rarity in Canada with our 60 LP's...….They have a 100% Sativa Acapulco Gold strain that was incredible......instant energy and socialability…..surprisingly strong in the lungs for a sativa....very spicy flavour....unique and took a little to get used to....potent THC strength lasted all morning which was rare considering my decades of use.....strain was 24.5% THC When its back in supply I will be first in line for it.....for sativa lovers they also have Sour Jack at 25 %....Tangerine Dream at 25.1%.....a 50-50 hybrid called Medical Glue at 27.2% and a 100% Indica called BC Rockstar at a whopping 28.6%


Just got this for the first time in like 15 years. Taste great and smells good 😊. Perfect any time, and a Sativa that's okay for anxiety or stress.


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!!!
