An Honest Review of the Strawberry Cough Strain

An Honest Review of the Strawberry Cough Strain

The Strawberry Cough strain is a favorite strain for boosting creativity, socialization, and inspiration.

Nobody knows the exact origin of this strain. Only a fantasy-like story is the only information available about its beginning. According to the story, an unknown cannabis breeder gifted a man named Kyle Kushman, former editor of High Times, another breeder cannabis seeds.

The mysterious man got these seeds from the Strawberry Fields that he cultivated somewhere in Vermont or Connecticut. Kyle Kushman thought that the seeds resemble the pungent and sweet smell of strawberries; that is why he called it Strawberry Fields.

Kyle Kushman used these seeds to cross with the Original Haze resulting in the creation of the Strawberry Cough.

This strain won as the Best Flower at the Cannabis Cup in 2013.

This strain is 85 percent Sativa-dominant, which makes it an excellent strain for morning or daytime use.

Despite the dominance of Sativa in its genetics, the Strawberry Cough’s structure resembles Indica in buds’ structure, which has thick and dense leaves. The buds, however, are conical and tampered. The amber trichome-covered flowers are chunky and large.

Moreover, the pistils of the Strawberry Cough strain are red and threaded because the leaves are sticky.

The notable scents and flavors of this strain are fruity, spicy, and sweet. It is delectable because it makes users feel like they are in a strawberry field.

The smoke resembles the ones the Haze produces when burned. There is no trace of musk or skunk in the taste — just sweetness and berries in the aftertaste.

However, the smoke is harsh in the throat, causing users to cough with tears.
