Strawberry Cough Seeds
Originating in 1999, the Strawberry Cough strain was discovered by cannabis king Kyle Kushman. Kushman was given a small clone from a friend in Connecticut, and he was struck by the intense aroma of strawberries coming from the plant. Strawberry Cough is a cross of Strawberry Fields with Haze from upstate New York. The strain is 85% sativa and known for its sweet fruity aroma with a soaring high. On a road trip across the United States, Kushman shared cuttings of the plant with growers he had met along the way. Within several years, the hype of Strawberry Cough had grown tremendously, and ever since it has been a revered strain in the cannabis community.
Strawberry Cough is bright green with strawberry red-tinted pistils. The buds are large, pinecone shaped, and covered with amber-colored trichomes.
Aroma & Flavor
Strawberry Cough smells like freshly crushed strawberries. A pleasant light fruity smell and spiced cherry aroma fill the air. Walking into a room where Strawberry Cough has been smoked will immediately perk your senses and have you asking for a taste. The smoke is sweet and expansive, and as a result it often provokes a little cough to the rookie smoker.
The Strawberry Cough experience is energizing, carefree, and therefore great for social settings. A long-lasting 3-4 hour high full of giggles and good spirits can be expected. The THC content is about 20%, with a low CBD of .22%. Medical patients can get relief from migraines and depression, as well as having an increased appetite. This amazing strain is high in the terpenes myrcene, alpha-pinene and ocimene.
Growing Strawberry Cough Strain
Growers can look forward to an easy-growing and sativa dominant plant. This cannabis plant produces heavy yields and grows vigorously. During flowering, the plants can stretch up to 2-3 times their size. Every inch of branching is covered with sweet and fruity-smelling buds. It takes 9-10 weeks for indoor flowering with an average harvest of 14oz/m2. 14oz/plant when grown outdoors and flowering should finish in mid-October. The plants like a heavy feeding of nitrogen during the first 4 weeks of vegetative growth. This is a hearty cannabis strain that is resistant to many pests and molds, while making it an easy and enjoyable grow for all gardeners.
