Origin of the Acapulco Gold autoflowering strain

As one of the most potent Sativas ever, the Acapulco Gold strain came from Mexico's Pacific coast to America in the 1960s and 1970s. There she gained international fame when she was mentioned in the cult classic film “Up in Smoke” featuring the infamous stoners Cheech and Chong. From that moment on, there wasn't a cannabis enthusiast alive that didn't "want to get high" on this exotic blend.

Mixed with Ruderalis, this mysterious strain has been made even easier to grow, and faster too, with a shorter vegetative period.
