The L.A. Woman according to pop culture
“Malibu Barbie® made everyone ‘wish they all could be California girls…’ Tan with shimmering, straight blonde hair, her simple blue tricot bathing suit with yellow beach towel and quintessential pink sunglasses could have been the genesis of the Beach Boys’ hit song.”

“A match of two multi-award winning strains… Martian Mean Green and LA Confidential…. The taste [of L.A. Woman] is sweet and robust with the flavor lasting well after the exhale. With the incredible smell and strength…it’s hard to go wrong. People will be satisfied by the bag appeal and frostiness, keeping all who try her begging for more.”
