L.A. Confidential is a pure Indica strain that has won multiple awards, including the 2006 High Times Strain of the Year.
The high of this pine-scented strain begins by numbing the body, inducing a state known as "couch-lock." Users experiencing couch-lock often feel waves of relaxing and calming euphoria and, occasionally, cerebral effects.
Although this is a pure Indica strain, a few users find its cerebral effects bordering on the psychedelic. It may also be thought-provoking and mood-lifting. L.A. Confidential's powerful laziness is often accompanied by sleep an hour or two after consumption. Negative effects may include cotton mouth, dry eyes, paranoia, dizziness, or headaches, especially with higher doses.
Recommended for evening and nighttime use, this strain may relieve insomnia though some find it makes them tired without actually bringing on sleep. The strong Indica effects make L.A. Confidential suitable for easing chronic aches and pains. Users often choose the strain to help them deal with stress and anxiety, and some patients use it to induce appetite or calm nausea.
L.A. Confidential is the child of DNA Genetics Seeds and is a cross of O.G. LA Affie and a pure landrace Afghani Indica. It can be grown by nearly anyone, anywhere: indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. Resistant to mildew, this strain can be forced to flower at three to four feet if the top is clipped early on. Finishing flowering after seven to eight weeks, plants can produce between 300 and 500 grams per square meter.
