Growing Acapulco Gold (indoor and outdoor)

Acapulco Gold is among one of the best Sativa strains, but will need to be well cared for to achieve her full potential. She prefers to be grown outdoors in a warm (sub)tropical climate, which is not surprising given her origins.

Do you prefer to grow indoors? Then it will be necessary to apply training techniques to curb the height of the plant. Think of Low Stress Training or Scrog.

She features a solid and strong structure and develops red, amber, yellow-colored buds. The THC content of Acapulco Gold is very high. So don't be surprised if you suddenly notice that all the flowers of your plants are covered with white crystals.

By the way, these seeds are female. So you do not have to worry about male plants.

Flowering time

Given the Sativa genetics, you would expect a long flowering time. However, this is not the case with the Acapulco Gold. The plant boasts a flowering time of 63-70 days when grown indoors. When grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere, Acapulco Gold can be harvested around mid to late October.

Plant height

Acapulco Gold grows up to 120 cm tall when grown under artificial light. Nature-loving cannabis enthusiasts who grow this strain in the wild can see their plants grow up to 200 cm. Pretty big!

Acapulco gold yield

Although it can take a little longer for Acapulco Gold to reach harvest maturity, she produces generous harvests of great quality. The wait is always worth it.

If you know what you're doing, this strain can give you a decent amount of buds. In fact, yields when grown indoors can reach 350-500 g/m². Outdoor yields are usually a little better.


Acapulco gold is a strain that induces powerful feelings of joy and can improve your mood. She can also provide inspiration. The weed is therefore particularly suitable for artists and creative types looking for inspiration and want to get new ideas quickly.

The high is cerebral and lucid, making you feel energetic and enlightened. Ideal for parties or when chilling with friends.

Side effects

Acapulco Gold has a THC content of 20 - 23% and is therefore quite powerful. It is therefore not surprising that you can experience some side effects.

First, the well-known side effects of weed, such as dry and irritated eyes. In addition, at high doses this Sativa can cause dizziness, induce anxiety and in rare cases even result in a mild bout of paranoia. Therefore, take it easy.

Smell and taste

Acapulco Gold is an exclusive cannabis strain that truly represents her Central American Sativa genetics. She boasts powerful flavors and aromas that will make your mouth water immediately. Think delicious sweet, earthy scents with fresh notes of pine.


The parents of this variety come from Central America, but no one knows the exact origin. Possibly the genetics came from the world of ancestral spirits and manifested in this seemingly Sativa strain, but that's just speculation.

So I wanted to wait till all was said and done. ,,Harvested and in the jar..I have to say this is some of the best I've ever grown or smoked....I grew outdoor in Virginia...and the terpene and stink factor on this is insane....propps to your outstanding genetics.i got ten seeds and planted 3.All of them popped and I got about two pounds ...I lost the other 7 seeds. So I will be ordering more.this puts me back to around 73,74....we were smoking Acapulco gold back then. And the smell is almost the same...I would put this up against any weed,, indoor or outdoor,,and I've been a cannabis user since 1970! Alan .. Virginia...fall 2921

Just got my girls outta the mail about an hour and a half ago. Dropped two in water an hour ago and they have already split the shell. Gonna let them soak for about another hour then drop them into some composted peat moss. Thank you!!! Not once have I been disappointed with your service!!! Looking forward to the grow, I’ll be sending you guys pics of my GSC Fems as well as these beauties in a couple weeks.

Frank Summerlin (Verified customer) 2021-09-14

Got my seeds today I am so psyched. Totally impressed on how fast they arrived. I can’t weight to start the run in my new grow tent. I have four auto female plants in the tent now. They are just starting to get little white hairs. Won’t be long till they bud out. I germinated two of the new seeds they should be a good 30 days old by the time the autos are finished. Again so psyched.

Vincent (Weedseedsexpress) replied on 2021-09-14

Hi Frank, Amazing to hear that you are so happy with your new delivery! We would like to hear how your growth went. Cheers, Vincent

Grew four plants in 60/40 coco/perlite mix using Advanced Nutrients PH perfect sensi coco nutrients. Two weeks from harvest and plants look fantastic. Buds are super sticky, light goldish green with orange hairs and sparkling with tricomes. They also smell fantastic, very earthy and sweet with a coffee aroma. I Will update on the flavor and the high in a few weeks.

Ron (Verified customer) 2021-08-02

I bought five seeds and all of them germinated. I started them indoors and moved and transplanted them outdoors during the first week of June. Three are in large pots on my deck, one is in the garden, and the remaining plant was planted in a space next to my 6ft tomato plant and is doing the best. I pinch my plants so they will increase in circumference as they grow. The last pinching yielded a lot of plant material. I decided to dry it to see if I could get a sense of what the finished product would be like. I was shocked beyond belief. Three hits and I was immobilized on the couch for three hours! The plants are all approaching 6ft tall and look and smell fabulous. This is not my first rodeo growing this stuff, however, the sample that I dried blew everything away that I have grown to date. I'll update when the buds are in. I thought that the seeds were pricey when I first ought them. I see the purchase now as money well spent.

Marc (Weedseedsexpress) replied on 2021-08-05

Hi Ron, That's quite the review! Thanks so much! Acapulco Gold is indeed one of our most potent strains, so do take care smoking this baby! Looking forward to your update. Cheers, Marc
