The Acapulco Gold marijuana strain is one of the most well known on the planet. Everyone agrees that it hails from the area in and around Acapulco, Mexico. Some people say that the "gold" in Acapulco Gold represents the golden coloring of the buds. Others say it refers to the fact that this optimal-quality outdoors cannabis strain demands a higher market price than most others ever have. Green, gold and brown hues combine beautifully on highly-potent, resin-coated bud colas of the Acapulco Gold marijuana plant. Also note that there is a similarly-named strain, also from the Acapulco region, Acapulco Red.

CannabisSearch.com's Acapulco Gold Marijuana Buzz Rating: Strong Sativa Head Trips That Have Remained World-Famous For Decades!

Toking Acapulco Gold medicinal cannabis is like having dinner at a 5-star restaurant: real nice. This is the type of weed that you maintain a private, hidden stash of and break it out only on special occasions. Not very much experimentation has been publicized about the indoor cultivation of Acapulco Gold marijuana. And because so many growers are moving indoors these days, Acapulco Gold is more and more difficult to find. However, if you have the time and space to wait for her to mature, the Acapulco Gold strain of cannabis is still one of the best in the world.

When i smoked this, it was before school. I didnt see what was in the pipe and i thought it was some low grade stuff like reggie. I took 2 hits and quit cuz it was before school.i started feeling higher, and higher and higher as time went by. I said to my friend "... What was that!?" He looked at me with a proud face ad said " this is some apocaluco gold!" I was shocked cuz thats real hard to come by were i live. I started walking back to school and it felt like everything was moving towards me, instead of me walking. Carrying my backpack felt like it was moving realy slow. It was hard to handle at first, but then it calmed down. It was pretty good. I highly reccomend this strain.

Thats a great review Guest, on March 2, 2011. Funnay as hell about the lady in line behind u while u had the munchies. But I hate to disappoint... Acapulco Gold is not an Indica. It is an original Mexican Strain found growing naturally in the Acapulco Region of Mexico. This breed of Cannabis has some of the highest THC content on the market even to this date ranging from 20-24% THC. It is a rare 100% Sativa Breed. If you ever get a chance to grab some seeds of this legendary strain, do not pass it up. Taste is also amazing.

I agree with the other reviews: Potent, but rather short in duration. Good cerebral high with a sleepy comedown. Great floral smell and spicy taste when smoked.

Sativas are not really my personal favorites, they just don't seem to work as well on my pain as an indica. I do like the feeling of relief for anxiety that this particular sativa offers.

Alcapulco Gold is old school strain, and is gold value when you smoke it! I got some alcapulco gold from a delivery service in Temecula, it was a bit pricey, $60 an eigth, but it was so dense and neon green with golden hairs. The smoke was nice and even, and not at all harsh but thickness in you're throat.

Great bud, but the duration wasn't good. And I didn't really like the texture. The taste and smell were very good though.

Very nice to the eye, Pale green with a hue of yellow , Orange hairs both light and dark are present, looks like a orange and gold nugget, with patchy crystals. Very mild as a whole nugget with hints of saffron and butter scotch. Wow can we say spicy, this bud has a tone of spice to it with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger being the strongest. Very smooth . Are very nice and immediate, you get very relaxed, and a little heavy eyed, (not for the rooks)I found that I did not feel a lot of pain I also feel this is great for spasm, and any one who needs to get some sleep.

The bud called Acapulco Gold looks really interesting and taste very good sadly though it doesn't last very long what so ever. It also has a kinda funky smell about it.

I've smoked a long time, have partaken of the original from way back. Without the gold coloring it's not real gold. What I just had, brought back memories of my youth. Everyone should give it go. Popular not, popular then. Some things just never get old. Price okay.

so this morning i picked up a jar labeled "acapulco gold" hands down it's some cronic. similar to the pic but not quite... mines is greener so cristalie its got a yellowish hue to it, def have to keep it sealed in an airtight container cuz it smells something awful, cant take it no where, i was standing in line at the supermarket(had the super munchies) and this lady behind me was just shaking her head. neway this in my opinion is a x breed or something, its def indica i get it from a local grower who im sure wouldnt b.s. me on what strain it is any way this harvest was potent. def one of my favorites besides the Wonder Woman.

Acapulco Gold has been around for a long time because it has retained it's popularity over the years. Now a classic, this popular Sativa is known for it's greenish gold resiney buds that produce a nice heavy potent high. Kinda rare these days and not found at very many locations, so if you do find it on the menu I suggest you try a sample!
