Trulieve announced their prerolled joint product as part of their “4 days of 420” promotion; several strains were available for sale starting on 4/19/2019. Though the prerolls quickly sold out, I was lucky enough to get a couple of LA Confidential prerolls.
I normally prefer to buy loose flower, but I found buying a few prerolls appropriate for the occasion of 420 – what I ended up discovering was another great quality product from Trulieve that I will buy again in the future.
LA Confidential is a well-known indica strain that was originally available with the very first batches of loose flower from Trulieve, bringing on relaxing effects for the patient.
LA Confidential (Indica)
Lineage: OG LA Affie x Afghani
Batch/Harvest Number: FFOBBULLZ200001 (that’s an “O” at the beginning and zeroes at the end)
164.0 mg THC/1.0g
0.0 mg CBD/1.0g
16.8% Total Cannabinoids
I was impressed with the overall quality of this preroll. The joint burned evenly and at a nice, fairly slow pace. A few users on Reddit complained about a strange taste due to the papers being bleached; however, I did not find this fact (if true) to be detrimental to my overall experience of smoking this joint vs. any joint from my past – it tasted just as good or better than any joint I’ve ever smoked.
The flower itself appears to be mostly made up of shake. There were no holes in the joint, no issues lighting it, and no issues keeping it burning. It burned well enough that I had to put it out and relight it several times due to quickly becoming very medicated; I had no issues relighting the joint at any time.
The prerolls come in the little tube containers as pictured above – similar to the containers that Truclear distillate syringes are packaged in. I think this is an excellent choice for prerolls as it ensures that the joint is not bent or broken before the sale.
Overall, this is a solid quality product.
Appearance/Quality Rating: 4.00/5.00
I was surprised at how strong the smell of this joint was when opening the tube. The immediate smells I noticed were skunky, pungent, and earthy. Upon closer inspection, there are notes of sweet pine as well.
The joint itself tastes very nice throughout the burn. LA Confidential produces a smooth smoke that is pungent, piney, earthy, and slightly sweet. I enjoyed the taste of this strain in preroll form, and look forward to trying it in loose flower to fully experience the terpenes.
Smell/Taste Rating: 3.70/5.00
One thing I discovered (or rather, remembered) about large joints: my moderate tolerance does not make it practical to take the whole thing to the head in one sitting. I found myself having to put out the joint and return to it a few times due to the potency of the effects. I normally prefer to smoke a small to medium-sized bowl every 2-3 hours, so a joint smoked entirely in one sitting would have me beyond the stars.
With that being said, I enjoyed LA Confidential in the evening while listening to Pink Floyd. This strain was notably cerebral and somewhat psychedelic – traits that aren’t usually associated with indica strains.
Around 30 minutes after medicating, the more relaxing body effects begin to sink in. I don’t find LA Confidential to be the most potent indica for pain relief or sedating enough to relieve insomnia, but it does relax the body and help melt away any unwanted stress. For that reason, I could see LA Confidential being useful at any time of the day – including the morning. In my experience, it was not sedating enough to prevent me from getting any tasks done.
Possibly good for treating:
- Minor aches and pains
- General relaxation
- Lack of appetite (mild appetite stimulant)
- Mild gastrointestinal discomfort (Irritable Bowel Syndrome or other similar conditions)
I’m definitely no medical doctor, so please take the preceding conditions only as my own personal observations from using this strain and having experience with a multitude of different cannabis strains. Every body is different, and every body reacts different to various medications.
Effects Rating: 3.90/5.00
Overall Rating: 3.87/5.00
Overall, I would best describe the LA Confidential preroll as a “very good” product.
For me personally, I find prerolls to be a good choice for “special occasions”, or for times that one needs a higher dose of medication, but perhaps doesn’t feel like going through the trouble of rolling a joint themselves. Prerolls are also a great choice for patients who don’t know how to roll joints, and a convenient option for those who do.
I will definitely buy prerolls in the future, though loose flower will always be my preferred form of purchased medication. As for LA Confidential, I really enjoyed my first experience with this strain, and look forward to trying it in loose flower form in the future.
