LA Traffic is a local small-batch quality indie brand that grows fire weed in Downtown LA.

The brand started during the Prop 215 days, around 2016.

These days they’ve made a name for themselves with their Zlushie strains.

The brand puts out trendy strains in colorful mylar bags that represent the culture of SoCal cannabis. Strains they have out now include Zlushie, Cherry Zlushie, White Zlushie, Cold Stonez, Midnight Znack, Zhirley Temple, and Traffic Jam.

Their White Zlushie is their best strain smoking right now, and could hold its own against other well-known area growers.

LA Traffic owner Jim says that the brand is getting more notice lately.

“We’ve been around for a minute. They catchin’ out to us,” Jim said.

He said that the brand has always been about “bringing quality flower to the market.”

Everything, Jim says, is done in house.

LA Traffic currently is in the three So Cal Backpack Boyz dispensaries, and they work with Backpack Boyz and 5Points to put out their strains. The collective of indie brands is helping to establish a new era of LA weed growers.

According to its owner, LA Traffic represents “LA based weed, quality weed, and the best flower in town.”

LA Traffic is dropping two new strains in the coming months, so we’ll be looking out to try the fresh heat.
