Growing the Acapulco Gold strain

Our Acapulco Gold strain is fairly easy to grow. However, we only recommend this species to growers with some experience as the plant requires attention and is sensitive to changes in PH value, nutrition and light.

Flowering time

Our Acapulco gold strain seeds feature a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors. The total grow time from seed to harvest is therefore 13 - 18 weeks.

The strain reaches an average height of 100 cm - 120 cm and develops thick buds that often become quite heavy and sticky buds due to the large amount of THC trichomes. Equipped with yellow, orange, red and gold colored hair, it is a beauty of a plant. A plant with a golden glow.


With an indoor cultivation in a SOG set-up, the harvest can reach up to a maximum of 500 to 600 grams per m2. Moreover, the plant thrives well with LST (Low stress training), which will certainly promote the harvest.

The Acapulco strain is traditionally grown outdoors and we understand why. Outdoors in the open ground, feminized Acapulco Gold seeds can grow into plants with a height of 200 cm and in extreme cases produce up to 1500 grams per plant. Harvesting is preferably done in October.

Taste, odor and effects

The psychoactive effect is long-lasting and due to the THC percentage of 23%, quite powerful, active, stimulating but at the same time relaxing. At least with a moderate dose. Too large a dose can make you paranoid. The CBD in Acapulco Gold weed is on average 0.7%.

Tastes and scents can best be described as an intense cocktail of sweet and fruity. Full of taste, smooth but also spicy. As if you have found a hidden treasure that you only share on special occasions with a select group of friends.
