If you’re looking for a way to de-stress and decompress after a long day, give LA Confidential a try. This award-winning, heavy-hitting indica is known for its powerful physical effects; those who are new to cannabis should practice caution.
A well-known and well-respected cannabis strain, LA Confidential entered the cannabis scene in the early 2000s, where it won many awards including High Times’ Strain of the Year in 2006. Bred by DNA Genetics, LA Confidential is a cross between OG LA Affie (also called Afghan Bombay Kush) and an Afghani landrace strain.
True to its strong Afghani roots, LA Confidential’s buds are large and dense, with an abundance of orange hairs and resinous trichomes, making this marijuana strain a good candidate for hash and concentrate production.
Cannabis consumers can expect a classic combination of marijuana aromas and flavors. LA Confidential imparts a pungent, earthy and skunky smell; it’s smooth on the inhale and has a sweet aftertaste that’s reminiscent of earth and pine.
LA Confidential is best saved for the nighttime or when doing nothing is your main objective. With a THC content that consistently clocks in at about 20% or more, those who are new to cannabis should consume with caution.
More experienced consumers will find this strain relaxing, while those with a lower THC tolerance may find themselves dizzy or instantly ready for bed. While LA Confidential has a staunchly indica background, it also imparts strong cerebral effects that some say border on the psychedelic.
LA Confidential is a popular choice among medical marijuana patients because of its body-numbing properties. Those looking to ease pain and relieve muscle spasms will find comfort in this cannabis strain. It’s also useful for easing nausea, stimulating appetite and addressing gastrointestinal issues. Basically, if you’ve got pain or discomfort of any kind, LA Confidential is a good choice.
