What is the LA Confidential Strain?
LA Confidential is also known as Confidential OG or simply Confidential. This is an extremely popular and well-known indica strain, complete with frosty green buds, purple leaves, and a fairly moderate THC level.
In terms of popularity, the LA Confidential Strain has been the recipient of several awards. It won the prize for the best indica strain at the IC420 Breeders Cup in 2005, the prize for the High Times’s Best Strain of the Year in 2006, and the prize for the best indica strain in the High Times 2008 Cannabis Cup.
LA Confidential is a cross between two other popular indica strains of marijuana, therefore resulting in a heavy-hitting indica that is going to put you to sleep, but not before it makes you feel relaxed and super hungry.
It has a skunky and earthy flavor, hits fairly quickly, and is a good option to help sleep better, keep stress and anxiety at bay, and reduce minor pains.
LA Confidential Strain Appearance
In terms of appearance, LA Confidential features huge fat buds, larger than most other strains. These buds generally come in the form of spades or something similar, not nice and round like some others, and the buds are quite fluffy too.
Unlike some other strains that feature rock-solid buds, these buds are fairly fluffy. As for the color, here you will see emerald or lime green buds that have some darker olive green leaves, along with a good bit of orange hairs, a bunch of super purple sugar leaves, and a ton of crystal white trichomes that are loaded with THC.
It’s definitely one of the more beautiful looking strains out there right now.
LA Confidential Strain Genetics
LA Confidential is a pure indica strain of marijuana, so it will produce that heavy-hitting body high. LA Confidential is made by crossing two other very popular strains of pure indica weed, which include Afghani and OG LA Alfie.
Afghani is one of the oldest and most well-known indica strains, coming right from the mountains of Afghanistan. This is also some of the most popular weed to make hash out of.
We then have OG LA Alfie, which is a cross between Landrace Afghani weed and another unknown yet powerful indica strain.
The THC content of LA Confidential is fairly moderate, coming in at between 16% and 19% THC, with around 17% being the average.
As for CBD, CBG, and other cannabinoids, LA Confidential does not contain them in any significant amounts.
This is an indica strain that, although it will make you feel tired quite quickly, won’t hit you overly hard. It is ideal for beginners who want a somewhat weaker indica to try out or for more experienced smokers looking for a moderate daytime indica to smoke.
