LA Confidential is quickly developing a reputation as one of the best strains available. It’s won a string of first-place prizes at multiple breeders cups including the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2004 and 2005. This award-winning Indica-dominant hybrid takes its name from the mid-1990s crime flick by the same name. Luckily, you won’t do any jail time for smoking this powerful strain in an adult-use state from the comfort of your home. Prepare for an out-of-this-world high with THC levels between 18 and 26 percent.
LA Confidential has earned its reputation from its exotic and hardy cannabis parents. LA Confidential’s valuable genetics traveled overseas from Afghanistan, one of the earliest hot spots where cannabis grew freely. LA Confidential was created by Amsterdam’s DNA Genetics by crossing an OG LA Affie and pure Aghani indica landrace strain.
OG LA Affie is a three-way cross between a Pakistani landrace strain, Colombian Gold, and a Lemon Thai strain. Growers love LA Confidential’s resilient nature and ability to grow in most climates as well as indoors, outdoors, or in greenhouse settings. A combination of tried-and-true landrace strains creates this potent indica hybrid.
Dark Green and Purple
LA Confidential plants feature wide, long, and dark green sugar leaves growing between its thick and resinous flower buds. Flower buds are long, chunky, and frosted with white trichome glands growing from its lime-green leaves. If you look close enough, you may see a few tufts of purple, but these colors only come out when grown in cooler climates. The contrast of green, purple, and brownish pistils make this a colorful strain with great bag appeal.
Hashy and Skunky
Properly grown LA Confidential buds have a mix of smells ranging from skunky to hashy to slightly fruity. Mainly, LA Confidential’s aroma has earthy and musky notes dominating over any minor pine, spicy, woody, and diesel undertones. LA Confidential has a mild sweetness that offsets its earthy and musty aroma. This indica hybrid is ideal for those that love old-school genetics with high levels of terpenes.
LA Confidential’s high THC content is effective even in low doses. A few puffs can hit you in an instant. Initially, LA Confidential’s effects are mood-boosting and euphoric. You’ll feel happy, sociable, and relaxed. As the high wears on, your body will experience a slight tingling or numbing sensation, which has been helpful for some who experience daily aches and pains.
High doses of LA Confidential act as a potent sedative that can leave you happy and mellow in your couch or bed. Its cerebral effects have a slight psychedelic tinge, but ultimately, the effects help you ease your mind and body. Many users smoke or vape LA Confidential before bed to relieve their stress, anxiety, and insomnia.
LA Confidential has won too many awards to name. Its solid Afghani genetics have made this one of the most accessible strains for new or seasoned growers. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still enjoy some prized LA Confidential buds from your nearest dispensary. If you ever come across a jar of this indica hybrid, don’t think twice about trying these THC-rich buds.
