“Widely popular in the world from rap artists such as Snoop Dog or Cypress Hill, LA Confidential is a strong and potent Grade A Sativa/Indica hybrid that originates from Afghani Indica and California Indica. Dark green with deep red hairs, the leaves wrap around the dense buds with white crystals. The sweet piney smell is just like the forest, with a hint of skunk with a smooth thick vapor. It is a very resinous strain, making it good for hash. One puff is enough to make you feel instantly better and relaxed with a psychedelic twist, and with a comfortable body buzz. But be warned: taking too much will leave you droopy eyed and sleepy. LA Confidential can be heavily sedating, making it great for insomnia. Experienced smokers may find that it is more relaxing than sleepy, but it depends on how much and your tolerance. Other ailments, it is good for: pain, anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, loss of appetite and stress.”
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

Indica strains originated from the mountain ranges of Asia and as a result, developed many features to protect itself from the harsh environments. Indica plants are known for being shorter, and bushier, with thicker layers of resinous THC. The high of indica strains are defined by the “couch-lock” effect they have on users. Indica strains serve well as relaxation strains, or to aid with pain and sleeping ailments. The calming, sedating effects of indica strains make it excellent for night-time usage or off-work hours.
