Acapulco Gold is a Sativa-dominant hybrid known for the golden hue of its green and/or brownish buds. This old strain is said to produce a powerful cerebral high that raises one's mood without producing overpowering feelings of happiness. Instead, the cerebral high mixes with a calming body high for a relaxing experience. Mild paranoia and anxiety have also been reported. Users may experience dry mouth and eyes as well as headaches from using the strain.
Sufferers of disorders such as General Anxiety Disorder or PTSD use this strain to find relief from stress and anxiety. Those dealing with depression use it to lift their mood. The body high can also relieve chronic aches and pains.
Acapulco Gold comes from Acapulco, Mexico, but the exact genetics of the strain are unknown. Traditionally, this strain was grown outdoors. Growing it indoors is still proving to be tricky for producers as there are no clear guidelines on how to do it. This makes the strain harder to find as more growers move their operations inside. When grown indoors, the strain flowers for 70-75 days. Outdoors, plants are ready for harvest by mid-October. There have been reports of yields up to 500 grams per square meter. Tests have shown that Acapulco Gold plants can have as much as 23% THC.
Amazing high. My father recommended this wonderful flower to me. He smoked it when he was my age (20’s). My new favorite!

Having a brain injury there's one thing I know. It very much does the head thing. Yeah. Eyes close, bit if a smile. Kinda blocks the emotion of anxiety. Crazy. Seems like the upper body gets most of the relaxation. FOSHO slight headache. But still killer.

I 1st smoked acapulco gold on the easter of 1967. This is probably my all time favorite weed only ties imho are columbian gold and the real panama red! Smoked panama red in the jungle when I was in school in panama so I know it was for real! Acapulco gold is a very sweet smoke takes a min or 2 to really feel the effects so is not actually a creeper but does get better after a few minutes! Very energetic smoke and inspiring poets artists and musicians is probably what it does best. I'd say is good for ptsd and addh and probably anything that ails you!
