Marijuana Mind Alteration and Full Body Bud Sedation
First bred in the warm southern climate of the sunshine state, LA Confidential Feminized hails from California, where many of the greatest strains available were born.
A multi-award-winning specimen, this pot has won a whole host of titles since she came onto the scene, including 3rd place in the 2004 Cannabis Cup, 2nd place in the 2005 Cannabis Cup and the High Times Strain of the Year in 2006.
LA Confidential is a powerful hybrid bred from landrace strain, Afghani, and OG LA Affie, making her an almost perfect Indica strain just from her parentage alone. This is reflected in her high THC levels, which soar up to around 25% on average, making this strain something of a beast for recreational and medical fans alike.
Piney and sweet, this cannabis is well-loved for her calming body-buzz and intense cerebral high, and has been regularly vouched for by the likes of Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill, adding to her popularity.
For medicinal marijuana consumers, LA Confidential can be a potent relief from pain, inflammation and the symptoms of a variety of psychological ailments, though due to her high THC content there’s always the risk of some small, adverse side effects.
With growers, she’s a popular strain amongst newbies and experienced cultivators alike, as she’s hardy, resilient to most pests and molds, will grow pretty much anywhere and provides hefty yields in a fairly short time period.
Flavor and Fragrance of LA Confidential Feminized
The scent of LA Confidential Fem is much like sweet pine, enticing with earthen and spice notes that balance her pungent, skunky aroma.
Similar in taste, the thick, smooth vapor of this strain is musky, lingering on the tongue long after you’ve taken a toke.
If a fast-acting, hard-hitting high is your style, then you’re in luck with LA Confidential, as her THC levels are sky-high, and you will be too.
In just one toke, an intense cerebral buzz will overcome the mind and in no time at all can develop into a psychedelic, trippy high. For those new to the cannabis community, this can be a little disorienting - or even send you right off to sleep - but seasoned smokers will love the trancey feeling this strain ushers in.
Moving swiftly, LA Confidential will begin to numb the body, her sensation spreading from top to toe as she eases the kinks from every muscle, joint and bone until you’re so relaxed that you’re practically melded to the couch - and you’ll be there a while too, as this feeling can last for several hours before sleep begins to take over and you fall into a soft and gentle slumber.
Kicking back and chilling out is the name of the game with this ganja, as she’s a 90% Indica strain. Not to dismiss her Sativa side, as the high LA Confidential offers is a soaring one, and the overall impression you’ll be left with is one of mind alteration and body sedation. Definitely an after work, evening kind of strain - not something to smoke if you’ve got stuff to do.
Medical Uses of LA Confidential Feminized
A potent specimen by all accounts, LA Confidential Feminized possesses powerful properties that can be utilized by medicinal marijuana consumers to great effect. Due to the relaxing high she provides, this strain has been reported as a temporary relief from the symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD and PTSD.
As a strain with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, she’s capable of alleviating aches and pains from muscle spasms, arthritis, migraines and PMS; inducing appetite and calming nausea, but is a particularly useful strain for those struggling with insomnia, due to her strong sedating and tranquilizing effects.
There are a few downsides to LA Confidential Fem though, as cottonmouth and dry eyes are a common side effect - best avoided by remaining hydrated throughout consumption.
For those more inexperienced or with a low THC tolerance, dizziness, headaches and increased paranoia are a possibility, and as such, we recommend keeping doses low and sticking to one toke at a time with lengthy intervals.
Growing LA Confidential Feminized Seeds
A true Indica, LA Confidential Feminized is easy to grow, and a great strain for first-time growers or beginners. Resilient to mold, mildew and pests, this cannabis will do well in most environments, but truly thrive in an outdoor setting.
A particularly gorgeous ganja of lime green, her foliage will turn a deep, rich plum color when exposed to colder conditions, which is excellent if you’re looking for a strain with bag appeal. Her bright orange pistils (hairs) will give you some idea of her potency, and you’ll notice this plant is particularly frosty and resinous, so she’s ideal for making hash.
Alfresco climates should be warm, but LA Confidential will still flourish in cool climes and should be ready for harvesting between late September and early October in the northern hemisphere. You can expect a plentiful yield of up to 21.16 ounces of buds per plant.
That being said, this strain will still do perfectly well indoors - growers can boost production using a Screen of Green (SCROG) setup in combination with either hydroponics or organic soil - though do be aware that LA Confidential Fem is taller than the average Indica (around 5 feet) and will require plenty of upward growing room.
Make sure to keep her lower canopy well-pruned, so that the bulk of the plant’s nutrients reach the colas at the top.
Whether indoors or outdoors, all-fem seeds will make the job easier, as there’s no need to weed out males. To ensure the plants reach their full potential, make sure to feed them heavily - plenty of potassium and phosphorus during the flowering period to improve the final quality of the buds.
Indoor growers can harvest LA Confidential after 6 to 8 weeks of flowering, with a yield of around 0.98 to 1.63 ounces of nugs per square foot.
Combining her distinctly rich and sweet piney flavor and fragrance with a trippy, psychedelic high that will have you buzzing for hours before you finally doze off, LA Confidential is a popular strain for a whole host of reasons, and you won’t find us arguing with those claiming she’s one of the greatest strains available.
A hit on her native West Coast both amongst recreational users in the cannabis community and those seeking medicinal marijuana, the calming, sedating effects of these buds can be put to great use for some deep, chill out time and for easing aches and pains of the mind and body.
Already one of the easiest strains to grow, LA Confidential Fem is made all the easier with all-fem seeds, removing the risk of pollination from your crops. Grow her indoors or out and you’ll find she’ll thrive regardless, as she’s resilient and hardy, and hefty in the yield department too.
