Acapulco Gold is the name given to a Sativa strain originally found in Acapulco, Mexico. The strain was favoured for its potent high, and interesting brownish/gold hued leaves and bud, but this isn’t the only reason for its name. Acapulco Gold got its name from the quality of the high, as well as the high price that this sought after bud used to sell for.
The buds are thick, light and fluffy, making the 2g’s we bought look a whole lot bigger than they were, which is always nice. The nuggets have a yellowish/gold tinge to their colour and smell sweet and earthy. The taste however was what really impressed us; spicy and full of flavour, a real treat after smoking nothing but cheese for a while, something which is fast becoming the standard A-Grade bud in South Africa.
Acapulco Gold is strong, but what an awesome high. After 2 or 3 drags on a joint you’re soaring. The Sativa high is clear and uplifting, giving you energy and motivation to get off the couch and go on that adventure.
