California Bean Bank
Indica 50 / Sativa 50
Origins: LA Confidential x Purple Diesel
Flowering: 56-63 days
L.A.P.D. stand for LA Confidential Purple Diesel, which incorporates the names of both parents for this strain while giving this strain an unmistakably West coast address. LA Confidential is a celebrity strain that made rounds in the 1990s Los Angeles market and then became available through DNA Genetics. This parent is primarily OG Kush genetics, with its signature heavy indica hashiness, sweet spice-like flavors, and sultry, dreamy high that borders on the psychedelic. The Purple Diesel parent counteracts the lazy in the LA Confidential with a big burst of energy that may translate into physical activity or creative pursuits. The Purple Diesel is that jacked-up, clean your house with the music blaring weed that some people love, all wrapped in a slightly sour and purely pungent package.
When combines in the L.A.P.D., this 50/50 cross is a versatile multi-tasker. It does well indoors and out, but makes it best showing when greenhouse grown. L.A.P.D. also transitions will in many gardening styles, including soil or hydro gardens, in SOG or SCROG setups. It is particularly good for hot dry climates characteristic of the southwestern U.S., including southern California and also into Nevada, Arizona, and other hot dry states. Those in wetter or more humid climates will have to watch for molds since the bud formation is very tight. Although the L.A.P.D. plant tends to follow its indica half of its roots and stay on the shorter end of the scale, it will stretch greatly if kept too far from the light. Harvest times are fairly fast, finishing in as few as 7 weeks indoors or early to mid-October when grown outside or in a greenhouse. At ripeness, L.A.P.D. forms incredibly compact and dense, crystal-laden nuggets with interesting crimson and purple tints.
Yields of the L.A.P.D. are solid, with a typical harvest between 2.5-3.5 ounces (80-100g) per plant, or 300g per square meter in a sea of green. Outdoor yields max out at a little over a pound (600g) per plant, but CA Bean Bank favors the more concentrated effects of indoor grown L.A.P.D. over the mellower outdoor bud. L.A.P.D. is very heady, and begins with the Purple Diesel’s up effects, but quickly settles into a much calmer and more sedate buzz. With light inhalation, it is an effective body relaxant; in heavies doses, it is seriously intoxicating. CA Bean Bank breeders say, “to protect and serve, or to take you out – the L.A.P.D. can do both”. Taste fans will enjoy this strain’s sweet top notes of grape and pine carried with a rich earthy undertone and a little bit of pepper on the finish. Medical users may appreciate the strong body effect, which are good for stress, cramps, spasms, chronic pain, and fatigue.
