Strain: Acapulco Gold
With all the breeding and clamoring for attention happening these days, a true landrace strain that still has an impact is a rare thing. This one is maybe the greatest surviving example, a real classic that the world has known and loved for more than 40 years. Originating in mountainous areas of Mexico, this has crossed the tables of breeders around the world, contributed to many popular strains, and never been improved upon. Love it for its sweetness and flavors of toffee and caramel, love it for the history, love it for the golden color that gave it the name, or love it for the traditionally buzzy and uplifting Sativa experience.
What is Acapulco Gold?
One of the most well-known strains, Acapulco Gold has been likened to dinner at a five-star restaurant. The strain comes from the areas in and around Acapulco, Mexico. Its orange hairs resemble a gold nugget, with gold, green, and brown colors of resin collecting on the buds. An aroma of burnt toffee lingers when the bud is broken up. Acapulco Gold has a reputation for being one of the best cannabis strains ever created and is becoming more difficult to find due to more growers moving indoors.
