Indicas are highly associated with the comforting aroma of earth. Meanwhile, Sativas are widely regarded for its energizing fragrance reminiscent of zesty tropical fruits. However, Resin Seeds’ LA Ultra breaks this tradition.
Information about LA Ultra:
Rather than the fragrance of wet soil, the Indica-leaning herb retains a distinct terpene profile dominated by lemon and lime. When consumed, it stimulates the mind and even sparks creativity – if only for a short while before its renowned heavy-hitting effects take over.

For now, Resin Seeds has not disclosed its exact lineage to maintain absolute secrecy. But, many speculate its parents to be LA Confidential and MK Ultra because of its sharp taste and THC levels of up to 23%. This theory is further flamed by the fact that its breeders have hinted as it as well.

LA Ultra, like other Indicas, is a slow starter. It does not rush users with a slamming cerebral high. It starts quite late – around 15 minutes from the first two or three puffs – but its euphoric onset is memorable. Like drizzle on a rainy day, its gentle uplifting buzz calms the mind but leaves most feeling happy from within.
After about an hour or two, a pleasant tingling sensation spreads across the deepest recesses of the mind and drips down from the temples. It soothes each muscle with a light pressure. In all likelihood, users will recline on the couch as a sense of total relaxation envelops the body.
LA Ultra has the zest of lemons and limes. It is tangy but absolutely energizing. Enhancing its fruity notes is a chemical undertone that only presents itself once the buds are either broken apart or combusted.
Bursting in the palate at the first draw are overtones of citrus, particularly the alluring sweetness of lemons. Complementing it is a sour tinge of lime. On the exhale, a chemical aftertaste lingers washes over the mouth.
Feeling a little ‘greened out’ while using LA Ultra is normal especially when the bud is smoked in unusually high amounts. This is normal as marijuana’s main psychoactive compound can overwhelm the senses hence the temporary dizziness and subtle paranoia. Pacing and moderation, however, will keep such effects at bay.
An unavoidable reaction to LA Ultra is dehydration. Normally, it manifests as a cottonmouth. But, some users also experience dry eyes to some degree. Neither is a cause for concern as both are too mild. It usually goes away with time but, if symptoms persist, downing a few glasses of water will immediately rehydrate the body.
Cannabis is mostly used as a stress reliever. As such, it is not uncommon to find individuals who smoke LA Ultra for that very reason. Its uplifting high leaves users feeling happy from within. Similarly, it provides comfort to users with mental health issues like depression and PTSD.
As an Indica-dominant strain, however, LA Ultra’s best use is appeasing various types of pains through its soothing body high. It relieves headaches and reduces cramps by relaxing any contracting muscles.
A drowsiness eventually hits users after being freed from both mental and physical tension. LA Ultra’s sedating effects help those with insomnia by enhancing both the quality and quantity of sleep.
LA Ultra is not a tall plant. As a nearly pure Indica strain, it is naturally short in stature. Moreover, its stalks are thick while its branches are sturdy. Because of this, it has high resistance against unpredictable factors like strong gusts of wind and fluctuations in weather. Sadly, this does not guarantee a great performance outdoors. And, for this reason, many growers prefer cultivating the strain in less volatile environments though it yields significantly higher in gardens or farms.
Indoors, growers can adjust factors like temperature, humidity, and lighting to suit its current phase. Its bushy structure and dense buds may require some manicuring though. Otherwise, it can accumulate moisture and turn into a breeding ground for molds or mildew. Cutting away dead parts of the plant and thinning it out will also ensure better air circulation. Meanwhile, applying special growing methods like the Sea of Green also help bring out the plant’s full potential.
Resin Seeds sells LA Ultra seeds in both feminized and regular form. The former reduces the growing process and assures users of an all-female grow. However, the latter is best for green thumbs aspiring to enhance existing growing skills.
LA Ultra has a short flowering period that averages between 7 to 8 weeks. At times, it may extend by a week depending on the grower. Regardless, it yields at least 12 ounces of buds per square meter.
Outdoor grown LA Ultra usually flowers from the last week of September to the middle of October. Once mature, it produces between 4 to 9 ounces worth of buds per plant.
