The LA Confidential strain was bred by DNA Genetics. It is an Indica-dominant hybrid that stems from heirloom genetics, and I found this particular batch on my recent trip to SFVDM in Van Nuys, CA.
LA Confidential Strain: OG LA Affie X Afghani
DNA Genetics released The LA Confidential strain in the early 2000′s and it quickly gained a reputation as an award-winning variety of cannabis, finishing in the top-3 for Best Indica two years in a row.
As far as genetics are concerned, it is the result of crossing an unspecified Afghani landrace with OG LA Affie – a three way hybrid that was developed circa 1978 by a northern California breeder named Johnny Que.
“The OG LA Affie strain combines heirloom Lemon Thai, Pakistani landrace, and Colombian Gold genetics…”
The OG LA Affie strain combines heirloom Lemon Thai, Pakistani landrace, and Colombian Gold genetics to create a distinct aroma of fuel and lemon, similar to that for which the modern OG Kush strains are often applauded for.
Aficionado released a limited batch of OG LA Affie seeds last year, so breeders and patients interested in a blast from the past just may get their chance. DNA Genetics is said to offer feminized OG LA Affie seeds also.
How Will The LA Confidential Strain Affect Me?
The taste of LA Confidential is reminiscent of spices, pine, and sour lemons. The buds are delicate, dense, lime green in color, and are covered in a slightly-darker orange hair than I expected. The effects created a mellow trance great for stress management and relieving anxiety in patients.
Perfect for appetite stimulation, the LA Confidential strain usually has a high THC percentage which has been shown to cause “the munchies” in a number of patients.
“The LA Confidential strain did make me sleepy in large doses, but didn’t actually help me fall asleep.”
I found the effects to be very psychedelic and make the mind race with ideas. However, this strain seems to hit the body pretty hard as well, making my limbs heavy with a severe couch-lock.
The LA Confidential strain did make me sleepy in large doses, but didn’t actually help me fall asleep. It’s for this reason I prefer sticking to a heavier Indica if you are in need of pain management and/or a natural sleep-aid (such as Granddaddy Purple or MK Ultra).
