LA Confidential

LA OG Affie
LA Confidential is a reliable and popular indica. This strain produces nearly psychedelic effects and a powerful body high. Those new to cannabis should proceed with caution.

LA Confidential is a medium-tall, pungent indica. Great for nighttime use, this strain produces strong sleepy and relaxed effects. This strain may put newer consumers to sleep, but those with some experience with the herb may find themselves comfortably sedated.

The THC content in this strain tends to be a little high, making it a little powerful for newbies. Bred by DNA Genetics, this strain is a cross between the landrace indica Afghani and LA OG Affie. It won awards in the Indica category at the 2004 and 2005 High Times Cannabis Cup, and 2006 Strain of the Year. Over the past decade, LA Confidential has only grown in popularity.

A stable and reliable indica, growers and consumers alike can count on this strain to deliver. The effects of this strain are just about as dense and heavy as its buds. Users can count on a nearly psychedelic high and plenty of couch-lock. Avoid this strain if you are trying to get something done.

Though, this is a great choice for winding down after a stressful day at work. Medical consumers tend to like this strain for sleep and gastrointestinal issues. The potent heavy-bodied effects of LA Confidential tend to make pain disappear.  Those under chronic stress may also find symptom relief with this strain.

Growing Tips

If topped early, you can force flower this strain when it reaches 3 to 4 feet. Fortunately, LA Confidential is one hardy plant. It has a high resistance to mold and mildew and can be grown almost anywhere. There are two primary phenotypes of this plant, both of which produce similar effects. However, one phenotype is a bit more rugged than the other. Though, some growers suggest that a third, more sativa-dominant phenotype exists.
