Acapulco Gold Strain

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.

This is one awesome “old school” strain! I’ve always heard about it, but had never seen it available. Well, that just changed! I got an eighth of this strain in PA from Agri-Kind, testing at 15.5% THC. With a moderate THC level, I wasn’t expecting to get super stoned. Boy, was I wrong! The nugs were gorgeous; mossy green and covered in brownish hairs. It smelled like spicy citrus and a little earthy. But the high, the high is what really set this strain apart. I was baked for a good two hours on just two hits. I got mildly paranoid for a short while, but nothing that would prevent me from trying this strain again! If you get a chance, and want to try one of the truly “OG” strains, don’t pass it up!


Literally, one of the BEST strains I ever smoked in my life. Gets you creative, pumps up the mood, gives you energy and you can suddenly notice you talk a lot. :) Totally awesome.


A fresh lit joint of good Gold should be a taste explosion happening in your mouth, after every puff. Only pin joints are needed for this Champion Strain. A joint of A. G. lasts me from 8AM until 4PM.Then 4PM until 12PM on one bone. I love Acapulco Gold, old version of the 70's or new version, with Hash Plant. It is much more Indica now than it was then. I'll take it over almost any strains. It has always resonated well with me. Buy some when it comes around.You will love it! Bad ass weed.


A quick head hitter and a mood up lifter. It has a rich coffee and cream taste to it smooth to your throat and lungs.Vaping this has a different feel and taste than smoking for sure.


I’m curing an Acapulco gold presently. Can hardly wait.


Don't go here to get Acapulco gold, they advertise they have it and they don't, waste of time and gas


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.
