One of the world’s most well-known strains, Acapulco Gold is a Sativa-dominant hybrid known for producing a powerful cerebral high. True to its name, the buds are green with a golden hue, densely packed, and with a substantial coating of frosty trichomes. The fragrance is bold and earthy, and the flavor of the smoke adds complex elements of woodiness and pungence.
The average THC level is only 10-14%, with a higher CBD level of 13-15%. The effect is a powerfully elevating, exquisitely cerebral high, with subtle happiness and a tendency toward very creative and highly energized thinking. As the high progresses, a distinct mellow settles into the body, with strong potential to wash away pain. This strain is best used to manage symptoms of stress, depression, pain, and fatigue.
