Acapulco Gold takes its name from the old-time legendary Mexican cannabis strain but improved genetics and selective breeding have raised the stakes in terms of its sheer quality. Its appearance harks back to the old days too with green buds flecked with red-brown hairs and shining with resin crystals.
Acapulco Gold’s genetics are mostly sativa and hail from Central America. Plants are quite short and rarely grow much more than a meter or so tall. It grows in all environments and will be ready after 60 – 70 days flowering indoors yielding around 500 gr/m2 of weed with 21% THC.
The dried buds have a fruit cocktail character which lingers long on the taste-buds. Its effect is exceedingly long-lasting and well-balanced; it offers great stress-busting qualities whilst also being upbeat and uplifting – a real cannabis strain for the soul. It was the HTCC Sativa Cup Winner in 2010.
