Acapulco Gold takes its name from the old-time legendary Mexican cannabis strain but improved genetics and selective breeding have raised the stakes in terms of its sheer quality. Its appearance harks back to the old days too with green buds flecked with red-brown hairs and shining with resin crystals.
Acapulco Gold's genetics are mostly sativa and hail from Central America. Plants are quite short and rarely grow much more than a meter or so tall. It grows in all environments and will be ready after 60 - 70 days flowering indoors yielding around 500 gr/m2 of weed with 21% THC.
The dried buds have a fruit cocktail character which lingers long on the taste-buds. Its effect is exceedingly long-lasting and well-balanced; it offers great stress-busting qualities whilst also being upbeat and uplifting - a real cannabis strain for the soul. It was the HTCC Sativa Cup Winner in 2010.

About Barney's Farm Seeds
It was the late 1980s and high atop the Himalayas, heavy snow hurling its way down from the skies, a small group of breeders began to cross-breed marijuana strains carefully selected from every corner of the Middle East and Asia. Bountiful harvests of sativa and indica hybrid cultivars kept the group's spirits up during a 3 year stint in the rural, desolate mountains. One member of this talented group would go on to create one of the most prominent cannabis seed production businesses in the world. That business is Barney's Farm and the man who started it all is Derry.
After his period of successful cultivation in Asia, Derry returned to Amsterdam in 1992 with his newly created cannabis seeds and took the helm at Barney's Coffee Shop. The popularity of his strains made Barney's the must- go-to place for interested parties worldwide.
The unique nature of the beginnings of a company like Barney's Farm only adds to its already vast popularity. The winner of countless awards and a never ending desire to produce 'new and exciting' strains of cannabis, it's no wonder that there is an international demand for Barney’s Farm creations.
