Acapulco Gold is a rare Sativa-dominant strain of marijuana with green or brownish buds. Ideally, after cultivation, the flowers should appear as deep brown and yellow colors, in addition to specks of crystal trichomes which brighten it to the appearance of golden nuggets. The warm winds coming over the Pacific Ocean and the aging process give the plant its distinct color.
This strain of Cannabis sativa came from Acapulco, Mexico, and is ideally grown indoors. It is a potent and pricey variety that became famous during the counterculture movement in the 1960s. Aside from its golden hue, this marijuana strain is also best known for producing strong cerebral highs when consumed. Nowadays, the term “Acapulco Gold” is used as a generic term to describe high-grade marijuana.
