Acapulco Gold is a relaxing walk down a Mayan Riviera beach as cotton candy skies fade to black.
An oldie but goodie, Acapulco Gold has toured the world long before you or I. Starting its journey in Mexico as the descendant of a landrace, it soon spread to every corner of the continent.
Acapulco is technically a Sativa-dominant hybrid, but most recognize it as a Sativa due to its appearance and effects. Light brown buds hang from tall, loosely packed cola’s. It’s an easy strain to breed for beginners as the plant’s accustomed to growing in any condition. You could throw the seeds outside and come back at the end of summer to a beautiful patch!
Acapulco Gold is no slouch when it comes to the flavour department. Peppery notes and hints of lemon dance on the tastebuds, while a herbal aftertaste wraps it all up. It’s a light smoke that novice and seasoned veterans alike cherish.
Acapulco Gold Effects + Benefits
At one point, Cheech and Chong were the most recognizable stoners in the world. And one of their favourite strains to smoke was yours truly, Acapulco Gold. While the strain has come along way, the effects have stayed relatively the same.
Shortly after smoking, a refreshing and mellow high revitalizes the mind. Acapulco’s high is as bright and relaxing as it gets. You’d almost say the high is as sober life should be, full of wisdom, intuition and focus. From then on, its peaches and cream. Rich euphoric energy covers the body and releases anxiety. Feelings of joy, jubilation and ecstasy take over as the body tingles from each sensation. As the high comes to an end, the user returns grounded and ready to tackle life.
Acapulco Gold is best used in the morning or daytime and provides relief from anxiety, depression and PTSD. Those afflicted with chronic pain also experience significant improvement in their condition.
