LA Confidential Strain Review | Herb’s Oil
LA Confidential Strain Review | Herb’s Oil
LA Confidential by Herb’s Oil is not the prettiest to look at, nor will it stand out amongst the many other brands and strains on the shelf. But if you are balling on a budget, don’t pass by on this sleeper. You may miss out on that perfect high you are looking for. This is a popular strain from California known for its forward-sweet and spicy pine with skunk undertones. It is a cross between Afghani and OG LA Alfie which is known to provide full body relaxation and a pain-reducing, sedating head high that can cause users to just space out. This is a night time strain by all accounts, so do not plan on doing much when using LA Confidential other than stuffing snacks in your face, being locked to your couch, or going to bed.
Herb’s Oil Profile
Herb’s Oil by My Weed Bunny is a line of branded cannabis, concentrates, and vape cartridges created by the company My Weed Bunny. My Weed Bunny is a Washington-based cannabis producer and processor that has been around since 2014. They offer a full collection of cannabis, concentrates, and vape carts known for their quality and potency. Herb’s Oil Flower appears to be the popcorn buds at the bottom of the plant. Popcorn buds, for those who are not familiar, are the smaller buds at the bottom of the plant that are usually lower in cannabinoids and terpenes, and while not as beautiful to look at as some of the big fluffy buds you see in glass jars, they tend to have close to the same effects as their much more attractive siblings.

Based on the terpene profile, LA Confidential will likely provide a very relaxing sedative high that is going to have a sweet citrusy aroma with a funky spicy pine undertone. This should be a great strain for medical patients looking for the above effects and for registered medical patients who can grow as this is a resilient strain that should be resistant to mold and bacteria. I am a big fan of LA Confidential for many of the medical benefits it can provide, and I am looking forward to reviewing this particular product as it provides a lower cost option that if effective as well provides a win for all.
It has a citrusy aroma with a slight hint of pine in the nose. The inhale provides a fresh piney flavor with earthiness and a sweet skunk on the exhale. This reminds me of the kind of weed I’d bring on a camping trip, where we’d all pass the joint around while everyone told stories. The effects are where LA Confidential really shines. I liken it to a 9-pound hammer effect. It’s very relaxing, sedating, spacey, and an incredible high. This was no different for myself, as I had forgotten how this strain affects me, and may have partaken of a bit too much at once. All in the name of science, I say. My mood was very uplifted, all body aches were diminished, and the psychedelic effects were nothing short of amazing. This is just an overall feel good and chill strain.
The Final Puff
What can I say? LA Confidential from Herb’s Oil surprised me as its small buds appeared dry and unimpressive, but they packed a powerful punch! I also found 24 hours in a jar with a Boveda pack made the buds not so dry, and even fluffed them out a little. I probably wouldn’t pick this over a top shelf option of the same strain, unless I was short on cash and I needed to maximize my purchase. Even if I just wanted some LA Confidential and it was the only brand available, it is nice to have that option and know you can still get a decent product! I would never have guessed I would have enjoyed this review as much as I did. So come on down to the White Rabbit; whether you’re looking for top-shelf or low-cost weed, we’ve got you covered!
Until next time, stay healthy and always take the “high” ground! ~ TerpzChaser
