About Acapulco Gold
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.

For daytime use, you can't go wrong with this strain. Always a good choice.
Since I started purchasing cannabis legally in MA I've sampled over a dozen different strains and Acapulco Gold is by far my personal favorite. I mainly use cannabis to self-medicate for depression, anxiety and PTSD. Acapulco Gold is an instant mood-lifter and my mind is still highly functional so I can still stay on task throughout the day. The best daytime strain I've come across so far.
Bad ass weed!
Bought an eighth of this tonight. Totally unsure if I ever had it before when I was younger, as this was the first time I ever purchased it legally. Loved it. Smoked a couple bong hits and then a small bowl after that. Great earthy taste but a hint of a fruity smell. The high was excellent. Upbeat and relaxed. Some Euphoria, but an excellent body buzz. It was a little expensive at 56 bucks but overall, I am happy with the Quality, taste, smell, and potency of Acupulco Gold!!
