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.

Here’s the progress that’s been made in the last week or so on the Strain Encyclopedia… these entries aren’t all completed, but are either loaded up with information, pictures, or both. It’s all a work in progress, but the Strain Encyclopedia galleries will eventually have pictures all examples of any given strain that we’ve reviewed (i.e. Durban Poison currently has samples from 3 different MMCs pictured in the gallery) :
Double Gum (refined Bubblegum strain from White Label Seeds)
Durban Poison (near-pure landrace Sativa from South Africa)
Stone Mountain (CO-created exclusive from Scott, founder of Stone Mountain Wellness — cross of Bubba Kush and DJ Short’s Blue Moonshine, crossed back to the Bubba)
Sugar Hashplant (we think it’s a CO original — a cross of a 90′s strain called Sugar #7 and a Hashplant)
Super Lemon Haze (Greenhouse Seeds’ winner of the last 2 Cannabis Cups, Sativa-dom cross of Super silver Haze and Lemon Skunk)
The White (elite clone-only cut from Krome)
Trainwreck (the ever-popular Nor-Cal Sativa)
Triangle (Florida-based strain that is the “mother” of Krome’s “The White”)
Twilight (one of Dutch Passion’s original strains, a pure Afghani Indica)
Violator Kush (Indica-dom cross of Hindu Kush and Malana from Barney’s Farm Seeds)
William’s Wonder (a Super Sativa Seed Club original, it’s thought to be an old-school Afghani Indica)
As always, thanks for reading, and let us know if there are any comments/questions! Look for lots more content coming in the next few weeks including plenty of Strain Encyclopedia entries, hash reviews, and edible reviews…
KUSHAGE STRAIN INFORMATION
Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid
Geographic Origin: California, USA via Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Seed Company/Clone: T.H.Seeds
Description: When two famous California genetic lines meet, the results can be wonderful, as seen in Kushage, which is a cross of T.H.Seeds’ workhorse S.A.G.E. and Cali’s famous OG Kush. The resulting hybrid is a very uplifting and energetic Sativa with some of the OG relaxation present to mellow out the at times racy S.A.G.E. This hybrid yields better than the OG, though the flowering time is slightly longer as well.
Awards: 3rd Place 2005 High Times Cannabis Cup – Sativa Category
Flowering Time: 9-10 weeks
Preferred Growing Medium: Kushage tends to grow into a sort of triangle shape, thinning out at the top as it progresses and forming an extremely dense and strong central cola if untopped. It’s advisable to prune the lowest side branches to encourage upper growth. The plant will stretch up to 4-5 times in flowering when started at 1′ or less, so allow plenty of headroom or train it heavily if the grow area is small.
Scent: Most Kushage we’ve tried has a rather sweet smell to it, taking more after certain phenotypes of the S.A.G.E. than the OG Kush. Sweet, herby, with a hint of citrus.
Flavor: Soft citrus, pine, and slightly floral elements form the main part of the flavor, again taking more after the S.A.G.E. than the OG Kush.
Effects: The Haze background of the S.A.G.E. comes through as the dominant effect, uplifting mood and stimulating the mind. This is a great thinking strain, but not as great of a “doing” strain, as the mind can get lost on its travels easily. The OG Kush side of the equation provides relaxing body waves and mental clarity later on in the duration once the initial potency passes. This is a great daytime creative type of strain, though the comedown can be very draining and induce sleep. It’s recommended for energy, mood elevation, body relaxation, and for sleep as it fades away.
