Abusive’s OG (later renamed “L.A. Kush”) is a special OG Kush cut thought to be a “selfed” OG bagseed. The original grower was nicknamed Abusive, and the cut kept his name. It was discovered and gained popularity in the Los Angeles area in 2002-03, eventually being spread via the Devil’s Harvest Krew to other locales around the country.
It’s a low-yielding OG with a distinct clamshell-like rounded calyx structure and copious trichome coverage. The smell has elements of the typical lemon-lime pine cleaner OG, but carries more of a deep spicy quality than most OG cuts, lingering on the palate for some time after smoking.
Abusive’s OG is very potent and has a more direct mental impact than many of the more clear-headed OG cuts such as the Ghost and SFV. A “strong up, strong down” type of effect, it hits hard immediately but evens out into an eminently relaxing state of a mixed mind-body nature. The main medical benefits are mental and physical relaxation, mood elevation, appetite stimulation, and sleep aid on the comedown and in higher dosages.
The pictures above are the verified Abusive’s OG cut, grown by Scott of Rare Dankness. The plants were photographed growing live just prior to harvest, and then shot again post-harvest in dried form.
