Acapulco Gold Reviews
I am 62 today.But my mom and uncle were selling weed in the late 1970's I told my mom I wanted to grow some Acapulco Gold and I wanted to get ahold of some seeds. couple weeks passed It was almost the end of summer 1976 and I had just gotten my wisdom teeth pulled so the others had room to move, My face was very swollen. My mom knocked on my bedroom door and handed me 2 5 finger baggies of weed,, but it looked like solid fuzzy gold. The hairs were a reddish gold color and very long. there were crystals on the hairs, the buds were full and rich looking. I had a 2 person party bong It held a 1/4 oz in the glass bowl. I was so stoned, dude I forgot I had a face.
Damn, this is the Sativa I've been looking for! I'm usually an indica or hybrid kinda person, but Acapulco Gold has everything to love about the uplifting effects of sativas, with none of the undesirable side effects (anxiety, intrusive thoughts). I'm using a .5g cart by Bungie Bros, and it helps me focus, streamlines my thought process, and keeps me out of the doldrums, would highly recommend for fellow autistics and those with ADHD. The arousal effects don't start to hit unless you smoke a lot in a short period of time, more of a slight tingle that would be pleasant if acted upon but will not distract you if it isn't your M.O. As for taste, there is a somewhat Pine-Sol like taste on inhale, but the exhale strongly smells of Fruity Pebbles cereal.
I only tried this strain in 1975 kicked serious arse 35 tons brought into us..Gene's unaltered naturally very potent.also redbud rainbow colum ia. Shipped to tractortrailer drop at shoping centers..those were the days.2 eastern airlines landed at Dulles dropped 4 tons of hash fo. Middle east lera jet flying in and outa mexico. Goe payodie joe..
Acapulco Gold was the 1st Sativa Hybrid in Mexico. It was a breakthrough for lower density and is stellar today as one of the best-balanced Sativa strains, period. Very happy and not racy, happy and great for headaches! One of my top ten even today!
It's reputation is well-earned! Generally I usually avoid sativas because of the anxiety/racing thoughts they tend to produce, but given this strain's notoriety, I had to try it once. People's reaction to any of these strains can be different, but all I can write is that after a week I have had no issues with anxiety or anything else negative (save the usual munchies) with AG. Actually, this didn't seem like the kind of sativa I've seen described before; I was too mellow to begin any kind of work project, so perhaps a different sativa is better if you want to work on your car's transmission or something. If you just want a nice and chill late afternoon/evening, this strain is the best I've found to help make that possible.

Everybody's biology is different as far as how they react to any of these strains, but this doesn't seem like the kind of sativa I've heard described; I was too mellow to start any work project, so another sativa might be better if you plan to work on your car's transmission or something. If you just want a chill, late afternoon/evening strain, you'll be hard pressed to do better than AG!
I'm 66 years old (like, WOW! how did that happen!) and turned on in 1970. I remember well the different bits of what we called then, commercial grass, imported not home grown. Of course who doesn't still enjoy the refrain, "No stems, no seeds, Acapulco gold is badass weed" anyhoo, I got seeds from barney's farm and have to say the high took me right back to the highs of my youth. And that was from a crop that I had to finish a week or so early cos of mould, so I'm looking forward to my second attempt with better light, nutrient control etc. Keep on keeping on...
One of my top five favorite Buds I am 60yrs old I remember this back in the 70s came from New York City It was so beautiful to look at it Sparkles like Gold when you rub your finger across the top of the buds the gold dust would be all over your fingers love it 💕great for pain/pleasure -great mood enhancer can’t wait to grow my own Acapulco gold waiting for that right to happen here in New Jersey coming soon 2022
I was very surprised with the chestnut earthy flavor and aroma, gave me light head buzz with a nice relaxing body high, definetly old school strain right there. Though I found the aroma a bit similar to the OG kush and the White Fire OG, a big nice predominent pungent smell with hint of chocolate and chestnut, I was very impressed
