Abusive OG Kush
A popular Californian cut of OG Kush, Abusive OG is an indica strain that inherited the nickname of its original grower. Despite its violent name, Abusive OG will ease you into in a peaceful state of mind that fades over time to a full-body relaxation. True to its OG genetics, Abusive OG has an earthy spice aroma with subtle lemon undertones. Patients who don’t mind mental haziness might choose this strain to remedy pain, anxiety, appetite loss, and sleeplessness at the end of their day. Abusive OG may not produce the highest yields in the garden, but makes up for it with resin-caked buds.
Medical cannabis patients may also benefit from Abusive OG’s thoroughgoing sedation. It can numb deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic. Anti-inflammatory properties can relieve everyday irritations like fibromyalgia or lupus. The strain can also be a powerful appetite stimulant, stoking hunger for those who have lost their appetites to disease or to some severe side effects of medication. Although it does not typically bring about paranoia, those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance should consume this strain in moderation, as its feeling of physical heaviness can be disorienting for the uninitiated.
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.
