Hey smokers - just got back from Toronto, Canada, was over there for a couple nights. Stopped by one of the new licensed recreational cannabis dispensaries that recently opened, the Hunny Pot (Store Images). They offer the exact same strains, in the same packaging, from the same companies, as the Ontario Cannabis Store web site - until recently the web site was the only 'legal' place to purchase recreational cannabis in Ontario. Picked up some LA Confidential buds.
The LA Confidential 90/10 Indica dominant strain is a well known California strain that was created by DNA Genetic with the crossing of OG LA Affie, and an Afghani Indica strain. Notable amounts of myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene terpenes (Source). These Aurora grown LA Confidential buds have a lower than usual 12% THC.
LA Confidential Looks
Dark green buds, an amber coating of trichomes, sparse and tiny pale orange/red-ish pistils. The bone dry buds crumble as the scissors slice them. I'll give these resinous buds a 2 out of 5 on the fluff scale.
LA Confidential Scent
Sweet pine and skunky scent - smells like an heavy leaning Indica, no candy-like terpene with this one. A welcomed scent after a long day of traveling.
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.
OCB Organic Hemp papers
Picked up these papers at the local convenience store, single wide - thin "Organic hemp unbleached rolling paper", i'm guessing 13g/m². These papers burn clean and slow, had to re-light the spliff a couple times.
100 Papers in this double-row single wide pack, "Made in France", "www.ocb.net".
LA Confidential buds Sliced
LA Confidential Flavor
Took the spliff for a walk around the block in the city - pine, earthy, skunk flavors. Not the hybrid candy-like fruit and citrus flavor strains i've been smoking lately - dark, smooth, and lightly sweet pine and earthy skunk flavors. Some mouth tingling from the dank terpenes.
LA Confidential Effects
Solid relaxation and laid back effects, just what i was looking for after a long day of traveling and an evening of catching up with some family. Even with the lower 12% THC there was excellent relaxation, i was sure to take a few extra tokes. I can see how the lower THC might be desirable for beginners and rare smokers, i would desire the higher THC content.
I'll be stuffing the remainder of these LA Confidential buds into a blunt soon enough. The OCB organic hemp paper burned slow and clean I'd reserve these Indica buds for smoking at night time.
