[Mexican Landrace Sativa]
Smelling a strain is important. Whenever I had a patient at the dispensary that was unsure about a strain I would just tell them, “Your nose knows.” and I’d raise the jar to their face and have them choose only with the smell and not their rational thinking. Acapulco Gold is one of those strains that would sell to any patient despite their personal preferences because of the utterly seductive aroma it emits. Pair this delicious Sativa strain with a cup of coffee in the late morning for a productive and blissful afternoon. This is also a strain name that popped up a lot with old timer stoners at the dispensaries. If these beloved patients ever listed off the strains from the “good old days” for me Acapulco Gold would be thrown in there.
How Does It Hit the Senses?
Once the jar is open you will truly become overcome with the aroma of sharp sandalwood embedded with sweet saffron. It is immense, and it is one of those scents that embodies the sativa aroma and engulfs a room when you open the jar or bag. The fat & chunky buds grow in a bulbous structure. They’re generally semi-dense and appear in a rich dark green hue with some light green notes. The taste is rich and vibrant that is quite reminiscent of the aroma but with a nutty almost almond aftertaste.
What Are The Effects?
At first, your mind will wander. It will wander off to weird crevices that you didn’t know existed in your own realm of thought. But then! Then something fantastic happens, all of that creative energy that has sent your thoughts ablaze comes to a fine point. Every time I’ve medicated with Acapulco Gold I’ve become a woman of words. I have finally opened up my floodgates to write poetry, I find streams of immense work flow from my fingers to the laptop and I feel …simply put… lighter. In every sense, Acapulco Gold will alleviate dark feelings and emotions, it will help you to put aside the gloom and just be. Don’t expect too much pain relief from this one, I’d supplement with CBD tincture or mix with a good Indica if you deal with pain. Also don’t worry about munchies, this isn’t Girl Scout Cookies, you won’t have any horrible need to eat half a pie (last night got weird) when medicating with Acapulco Gold.
