I will preface this by saying keep in mind that this is only half of my second grow ever, I also did it all organic with an 11/13 flowering light cycle, so the yield isn’t eye dropping. Please also check out my Growers Choice Blueberry Kush diary, since that was the clear winner of the two I currently harvested in my tent for quality (would have been in yield as well if I didn’t lose two of the colas) - that one is truly a connoisseur strain that should be worth taking a look at. I’m really surprised that this diary is the popular one of the two, but it must be because Barney’s Farm has a large following on this site, and Acapulco Gold is a famous name. I just hope the name isn’t just being used as a marketing tool.

This was a fun but difficult grow, and stirs my suspicion more that this really isn’t Acapulco Gold - I’m definitely not saying that it for sure isn’t, but if Barney’s Farm could share the origin story of how and where they actually found this strain and about who they obtained it from, then I could be more sure. I fully apologize for my doubt if it really is AG. This is a strong strain in THC content, but the high doesn’t match the AG experiences I have had previously, nor does it look or smell like it. Also the plant is short, stocky, and broad leaved, not like the AG of yore. The high also wears off really fast. I would say that all of this could just be the phenotype of this seed, but when researching other journals on this site and off, it seems to be the dominant phenotype. @donovanliam has a good example of the phenotype that we should be expecting more of from this strain. Mine didn’t smell very good while growing either - often it was a very acrid and unpleasant aroma. The pine smell that did come out during flowering has disappeared during curing, and it isn't because I cured bad - I did it completely by Ed Rosenthal standards. *Edit: after about two weeks into my three week paper bag cure, the smell has become more pleasant and sweeter.

I kept my rating at a 6 though, because it does yield well, has a lot of THC content, and looks pretty. Since this does have lots of THC, this still could be for you if you don’t mind it being sub par on flavor and aroma. My trimming scissors were also completely caked with hash, and it gave me a good hash ball at the end. Also, I think that with synthetic nutrients, you can probably bring out more of the better attributes of this strain.

Fantastic strain! I had a heat issue near the end and got some nanners, but it was so late in the cycle, it didn’t matter. Huge yield and amazing smells in the jar. Great feelings and the buds are dense and burn forever!
