Strain Review: LA Confidential

A Pure Indica Pleasure

Though hybrid strains are popular, sometimes you need or desire a pure indica or sativa effect, rather than a combination of them all. If you’ve been craving an indica, LA Confidential is definitely one you want to pick up. The strain has won four Cannabis Cup awards since it first came on the scene in the early 2000s, bred from OG LA Affie (also known as Afghan Bombay Kush) and Afghani, by DNA Genetics.

What You Should Expect

This is quite the unique strain, and the vibrant colors are sure to have you admiring this bud before you break it up (a grinder may be recommended due to the amount of sticky trichromes). Often brighter shades of green with a multitude of thick orange hairs all throughout the dense buds, LA Confidential adheres to its indica genetics. Coated in a thick layer of frosty white crystals, this strain is about as dense as a bud can get.

The pungent aroma of this strain will be noticed right away – very earthy with hints of spicy diesel and lemongrass. Those scents transfer into a sweet-tasting smoke that leaves an earthy aftertaste – but by the time you notice that, the effects will already be hitting you. LA Confidential is a very fast-acting strain that will leave you feeling relaxed – and perhaps even rooted to your spot – by the time you finish a fat joint.

Medical Benefits

Indica strains are most often used by people suffering from insomnia and chronic pain – and this strain will not disappoint if you are looking to treat one of those conditions. Other conditions that may benefit from LA Confidential include migraine headaches and muscle spasms, eating disorders, loss of appetite and nausea.

For anyone looking to grow their own bud, this strain would be a perfect indica to get you started. It is apparently rather durable, resistant to most mold and mildew, and can grow very well both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, the plants are expected to flower in an average time of about 10-12 weeks with average yields. Outdoors, it should flower around late September to early October.

A California original, bred during the early years of marijuana legalization, LA Confidential is well-known and has a reputation for being a strain that is versatile and effective for many different medical purposes.
