Celebrated in film and music, this one of the premier and most premium cannabis strains, even boasting its own Wikipedia page. And it’s all the more prized because it’s becoming a bit harder to find—a pity, given it’s one of the all-time-great kinds of marijuana.
The classic sativa boasts a balanced body high, promoting ease and relaxation, and has uses for medical marijuana patients, including muscle spasms, depression, fatigue, stress and PTSD.
Coming to prominence in the 1960s, the cannabis strain comes from the Acapulco region of Mexico and is the forebearer of many other popular strains, including Skunk #1. The Acapulco Gold name derives both from its geography of origin and the many trichomes that give its nugget-sized buds their golden hue.
The strain provides a mellow body buzz that is easily managed for use during both the day and evening.
