    • Advantages
      Acapulco Gold's buds are great as a daytime smoke or as I like with a fresh hot cup of coffee. This sativa will get you moving with a fresh smooth toke. She's strong as well. Not for the novices. With enough thc% to put some pep into your step for 3½-4hrs. A nice easy come down from the long high is likely.
      Smells (to me) just like JuicyFruit Gum. With maybe a bit of honey in there too. If you happen to be fortunate enough to have grown this strain then you know what others are missing out on.
    • Disadvantages
      Can cause dry mouth
    • General impressions*
      Becoming familiar with Barney's Farm and their genetics has been a very fruitful journey.
      Acapulco Gold grows well through all stages of growth. Steady defoliation and LST sessions are a must when she's maturing indoors. 
      She can be a finicky eater as well so maintaining a moderate feeding schedule without going overboard is likely best. Water, water, feed...or lower ppm levels on every other. Either way don't overdo nutes and this Golden Gal' won't have any problems with producing. The plant hasn't disappointed me yet. Good girl 🌱 Making plenty of beautiful and tasty nugs that will make anyone wanting to try Barney's farm Acapulco Gold on their next run.

      I love this strain as a day time sativa. It is now in my top 5 favorite sativas for sure. I've grown it several times now indoors and outdoors. Outdoor seems to have better results. My 400W HPS environment provided better indoor results than my dual 300W LED indoor environment. The nugs were much better when grown under the HPS in my particular environment. This strain has always been the first seed to sprout and the most vigorous to grow in comparison to other strains I've grown side by side. I'm currently growing one of these ladies outdoors and she is thriving in the hot Oklahoma summer. You won't regret growing this strain if you like sativas! It responds great to training. The taste is great and the high is just what I want from a sativa. I can smoke a fat joint of this Acapulco Gold and get to work. It doesn't put you on your ass, but instead motivates you for the task at hand. Check out my pic. Instagram.com/JimStash420 if you want to see more.
    • Disadvantages
      It likes to stretch and likes it's nitrogen. Also may require branch support in flowering if you're working with small plants with skinny branches. These are not worth deducting a star, however.
    • General impressions*
      Acapulco Gold turned out to be everything I hoped it would be when I was fantasizing about growing it many months ago.

      Harvested at 59 days flower. Perfect feeling and will get better with cure. I would say if you get chance then you should grow this strain. Happy I chose Acapulco Gold for my debut.
    • Disadvantages
    • General impressions*
      First grow has been a success 🤤
      Still slightly wet sitting in the jars at 70% plus. Got them in the tent with the dehumidifier on along with carbon filter as the outside humidity is elevated. Smoked a little and even now it’s a great sativa high. I’m glad I harvested when I did as it is more of an up-beat high. Smells amazing too

      Great for daytime or nighttime use. Earthy spice smell with hints of citrus. Tastes exactly how it smells, smokes smooth and provides an exceptionally clear, almost psychedelic high. I mostly smoke it from morning to evening! 
