History and Origin of LA Confidential Marijuana Strain

LA Confidential is a unique fragrant hybrid that comes from the legendary Southern California laboratories. This hybrid is famed for its potent THC levels, its distinct pine scent and it’s fully present Kush genetics, making it an industry fave among amateurs and veterans alike.

This West-Coast favorite is very much in demand. LA Confidential is a hybrid of power that comes from a mixture of OG Affie and an Afghan Indica. This super-strain tastes smooth and rolls off the tongue, and delivers a quick and potent psychedelic high that can calm and soothe the body

This hybrid is very popular for those seeking out its medical benefits, as LA Confidential has proven itself to be very successful in the treatment of pain disorders. An array of other ailments may also be treated with this powerful strain, such as mood disorders, as well as the inability to fall asleep at night.

LA Confidential is an indoor-adapted plant that can also be grown outdoors or in the greenhouse. This strain is resistant to mildew and is easy to grow even for beginners. The strain likes any medium – water, coconut, soil or NFT systems. When LA Confidential is forced to flower at 3 to 4 feet, it remains small and only gains one foot in the rest of its cycle, making it a good strain for gardeners with limited space. The DNA itself prefers larger plants that are overgrown for 3-4 weeks to achieve a lower total number of plants. Like many environmentally conscious breeders, DNA recommends organic nutrients.

As she moves through flowering, LA Confidential forms sprouts like popcorn that are very dense, and of a green so dark that they almost look black at the time of harvest. The flowering time is speedy, finishing in 7-8 weeks indoors, or by late September to early October when grown outside. These are the sweet “rocks” of the resinous bud associated with their OG Kush ancestors. LA Confidential is not the highest yielding strain with average yields of between 300 and 500 grams per square meter of “small” crops in a confined space. 

LA Confidential delivers a heavy “Kush” high: delicious, sluggish and a bit psychedelic. Experienced smokers find it relaxing, but not drowsy, though it’s probably too relaxing for complex tasks. This is a chill-out smoke. What this Indica strain lacks in monstrous yields is made up for by high values, taste, and smell. Many weed experts agree – LA Confidential won the second place (2005) and third (2004) for Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup and first place for Indica at the International Cannagraphics Cup (2005).


More information on LA Confidential Marijuana Strain

LA Confidential Strain is a pure Indica with its roots in the history of early Californian Kush’s and a magnificent specimen of the marijuana breeders art. This classic Indica shaped, multi-hued plant oozes class from every leaf and bud.

The initial feeling you get from this strain can often be misleading as it is definitely a “creeper”. The first few hits are pleasing and almost cerebral; however, after a few further pulls on a joint or a minute or so after a good bong rip, a big hammer will knock you right back into your seat! Do not be deceived through the intense body stone is not particularly sleep-inducing and that luxurious slightly trippy high you expect from Kush genetics compliments the overall feeling beautifully.

The genetics of LA confidential are some of the oldest and most respected in the marijuana grower’s world; OG LA Affie crossed with a landrace Afghani. This has created a perfectly well balanced rich Indica strain that is particularly hardy and well suited to both indoor and outdoor growth. Its growth pattern is exactly what you would expect from a landrace inspired Indica plant- medium height bushy and reasonably tight internodal distances. The coloration of LA confidential is another of its sought-after traits, lime green shade leaves with more purple-tinged upper buds and leaflets. The aroma is a nose-pleasing blend of sweet spicy kush and a more earthy undertone, which is only enhanced during the later stages of flowering and when you are harvesting. The taste is just as well balanced with the initial flavor being decidedly sweet like fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. This is quickly transformed into a more usual spicy skunk flavor that is very tasty however you smoke it.

LA Confidential has an almost unique position as a classic Original strain that is a modern master and becomes an outstanding plant.



  • OG LA Affie
  • Afghani

Both strains are predominantly indica, but OG LA Affie definitely has strong brain effects in addition to its Indica effects. LA Confidential was created by DNA Genetics, and OG LA Affie was also created by this seed company. 

Afghani is an indica landrace known for its soothing properties. It is a very popular landrace strain for breeders. Landrace strains are the original strains that grew naturally in certain places before Homosapiens began experimenting with genetics and producing our own new strains.
