About Strawberry Cough
History & Genetics
You must be a brave soul to try Strawberry Cough. This 80/20 sativa leaning giant, with upwards of 18% THC potency, wasn't named lightly - it will have you coughing up a storm. No one is sure where Strawberry Cough came from but we know its likely origin is from a cross of Erdbeer or Original Haze and an indica, bred by Kyle Kushman. According to legend, he started with cannabis seeds from a plant growing in a strawberry field on the East coast of the United States (possibly in Vermont somewhere). The result is Strawberry Cough, a strain that will have you feeling social and energetic before you’ve even put down your toke.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The buds may be small, but they’re dense and potent, fuzzy with red hairs, and wet with crystal trichomes. They’re almost like little strawberries. Whereas most cannabis plants have a terpene distribution of different flavors each at a percentage of <0.5%, Strawberry Cough has one dominant mega-lady in its terpene mix: the seductive Alpha-Pinene.
This terpene is the spirit of the outdoors, imparting the scent that runs through coniferous plants like mountain pines. Expectedly, Strawberry Cough is drenched in this outdoorsy aroma, which is relieving and exciting.
The strain burns thick and smoky as it gives you a relieving, relaxed high. Strawberry Cough pairs perfectly with people-watching, studying, and reading. If you have ongoing hobbies or art projects, this is a great strain to get the happy, creative energy you need to keep working. The flavor is fruity with a dash of skunk. And you’ll be smiling this strain, with a hint of cerebral feeling.
Elevated stress levels can be beaten to a pulp with a spicy, fruity skunk from a dose of Strawberry Cough. To relieve mood imbalances like manic depression and ADD, treat pain and fatigue, and jumpstart your appetite in the long afternoons, you can use this strain to paradoxically inhale a cough and see what happens (only good things - we promise).
Strawberry Cough is an easy plant to grow, so long as you keep it inside. Unlike hardier strains, Strawberry Cough is a homebody because of its need for a warm climate. Nighttime temperatures will rob your crop of the quality buds it deserves.
This strain grows in a bushy pattern that requires frequent pruning. If not, the higher branches will prevent light from powering your lower buds with the energy they need. While the plant appreciates being pruned and taken care of, it can be left to its own devices in a good ol’ fashioned soil-growing medium. No need for complicated hydroponics here – just dirt and organic nutrients.
One of my favorite strains and as already mentioned by other tokers its perfect as a day smoke. Keeps you active and feeling no pain or stress. I like to run and this strain helps me get out the door and with muscle aches afterwards. I'm also a creative professional and during the day need a smoke which promote thinking outside the box.
Well I had something happen after a couple of hits of Strawberry Cough. Tha first 2 hits were incredible!! The 3rd was the one. The first 2 were very mind numbing!! The 3rd I literally fell out of my chair. Never black out and was leaning forward holding kit in. But do that a lot!! Never have I fell out of a chair! So I’d say it’s pretty good because I’m writing this within 10 minutes of it happening. Remember everything. Some might be scared but can’t wait for 4th. Peace all. ✌🏻🙏👍🏻🇺🇸🤪🤣😇
Nice sativa strain to start the day!! Cool and refreshing, it’s perfect for mid morning smoking without the fog. 💚
Can't get enough. Live with passion
One of my favorite sativas, I consider strawberry cough my “Iron Curtain” for depression. No question, it makes me chatty, and definitely makes it easier to get into a social event. Great wake and bake. Motivating. Though again for me, the biggest benefit is stopping my depression.
