Effects & Usage



Welcome to the cinematic world of LA Confidential, a strain that transports you to the heart of Hollywood with its charm and therapeutic bliss. This 90% indica-dominant hybrid hails from the fusion of OG LA Affie and Afghani, creating a powerful blend of relaxation and euphoria. With THC levels typically between 19% to 25%, this potent indica shines as a versatile and effective strain for various conditions.


The onset of LA Confidential feels like using a warm blanket on a winter day – wrapping your body and soul in a gentle cocoon of comfort and ease. You will initially experience a sense of euphoria rushing through your mind, with a warm buzz that makes you see the good in everything. This intensely pleasant feeling will leave you content and at ease, enjoying life’s simple pleasures.

At the same time, this indica provides a very potent relaxation – strong enough to induce a couchlock. You will notice your body becoming pleasantly heavy and relaxed, with all the tension and spasms fading into the background. Eventually, the strain will make it too hard to move, glueing you to your chair or bed. LA Confidential is all about this lazy, stoned feeling where pains and worries disappear, and you are left happy just being in the moment the way you are.

You will not feel like doing much after smoking this bud, so if your to-do list is full of errands, keep this strain for another day. However, if you are looking for a good mood and deep relaxation at the end of the day, you’re in for a treat.

Where LA Confidential truly shines is in the treatment of physical ailments. As a potent pain reliever, it works with the anti-inflammatory terpenes pinene and caryophyllene to provide soothing relief for conditions like arthritis, joint pain and swelling, and chronic pain, to name a few. In addition, it can do wonders for stress relief, as it relaxes the users like no other. It will also facilitate deep sleep by easing the racing, worried mind and wiping restlessness away.

Side effects

The adverse reactions to LA Confidential are gentle and mostly limited to the sensations of dry mouth and dry eyes. However, given its potency, it is essential to exercise caution when using this strain. In rare cases, it may trigger paranoia and anxiety in sensitive individuals. Therefore, new users should approach it cautiously and begin with small doses.

It is best to use this strain only in the evening, as it is known to cause drowsiness.

Taste & Smell


The smell of LA Confidential, with its sweet earthy and piney notes, will transport you to a serene Californian forest. While the aroma is noticeably skunky, it is not pungent at all and does not tend to linger around.

The rich taste profile mirrors the scent notes, offering a full-rounded, creamy, piney experience complemented by hints of spice. Appearance-wise, LA Confidential is a typical indica with its small, popcorn-like nugs, boasting a lovely lime-green colour mingled with hues of purple. The leaves can aptly be described as sugary, as this plant’s trichome count is incredibly high.



LA Confidential was born on the sun-soaked streets of Los Angeles, a result of combining the legendary OG LA Affie and an Afghani indica landrace strain. This masterpiece does justice to its name with its great therapeutic benefits and detailed sensory profile. It quickly gathered global recognition and won multiple awards,  including the prestigious High Times Cannabis Cup. 

Growing conditions

Growing LA Confidential feels like a breeze and will be manageable for growers with all kinds of experience. The plant is low-maintenance, as it is highly resistant to mould and mildew. It is versatile and can be grown indoors and outdoors as long as it gets warm and sunny conditions – much like its native climate in California.

With an average height of 90-120 cm, it can be cultivated even in small spaces. The plant flowers in a surprisingly short time, taking between 6 to 8 weeks, and provides yields of around 400 grams per square metre indoors and 450 grams per plant outdoors.
