      LA Confidential Strain Information

      Developed by DNA Genetics Seeds, the LA Confidential strain has won numerous awards, including the 2006 High Times Strain of the Year. As a nearly pure indica (its sativa content ranges from about 5%-10%), LA Confidential delivers a body-numbing, sedating high that sends users straight into a deep state of couch-lock. If you’re into heavy, sedating weed, you’ll probably also enjoy similar indica-leaning strains like 9LB Hammer, G13, Blueberry OG, and Gorilla Glue #4.

      Though this strain leans heavily indica, it also produces psychedelic-like effects at the outset, which can be both mood-lifting and thought-provoking. But those effects don’t last long. For most people, LA Confidential induces deep sleep within just a couple of hours. Given its intensely sedating effect, this bud is definitely best suited to a nighttime wind-down smoke sesh.

      Medical patients who suffer from insomnia, pain, stress, and anxiety turn to LA Confidential for its profoundly calming effects. Recreational smokers love the strain for a nice mood boost and intense relaxation at the end of a long day. Users who smoke a bit too much are likely to fall asleep almost immediately.

      Strain Summary

      LA Confidential is a highly popular, award-winning indica strain. Despite its relatively low sativa content, the strain produces an almost psychedelic effect that’s simultaneously uplifting and intensely relaxing.

      Just a few tokes too many, and users are likely to pass right out, but that’s one of the reasons LA Confidential is so well-loved. The strain is widely used for alleviating stress, anxiety, pain, and (obviously) insomnia.
