The experience of Acapulco gold is practically metaphysical. Imagine having the opportunity to indulge in some of the same legendary cannabis used by ancient shamanic leaders in pre-colonized America as a means of entering the necessary altered state of consciousness for their rites and rituals. That ancient vibe courses through the entire experience of Acapulco Gold. Barney’s Farm has taken some of the finest specimens of Central American cannabis and created a sativa-dominant, stable hybrid with a THC concentration as high as 21%.
These seeds come feminised which means that they are extremely predictable and grow consistently. They offer wildly impressive yields and deliver an experience that many enthusiasts agree to be second to none. The colas of this plant have reddish-brown coloured speckles with flecks of gold and easily visible THC crystals. The flavours are strong, fruity and long-lasting. First-time growers should definitely consider Barney’s Farm Acapulco gold since they are easy to work with and will provide valuable experience with favourable results.
Acapulco Gold is a dominant sativa, so it provides a long-lasting effect that is at the same time energetic and relaxing. It is a great choice for stress-reduction and has unique analgesic properties as well. Among its other medicinal benefits, Acapulco Gold is said to have effective pain-relieving qualities and can be used as a natural sleep aid.
This strain grows nicely both indoors and out. At full maturity, most plants reach about 110 cm when grown outdoors, about 70-80 cm indoors and thrive with impressive yields under Low Stress Training setups. Flowering time is about 60 to 70 days.
Feminised Acapulco Gold has received accolades in the world of cannabis culture. Most notably, it received recognition at the 2010 High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam having been awarded first prize in the category “Best Sativa.”
