Strawberry Cough Strain Review

For years, Strawberry Cough has been at the top of the list of must-try strains.  This sativa-heavy hybrid is absolutely delicious, and its ‘high’ is famous for its potent cerebral effects and euphoria.  If you’ve been looking for a new sativa to get into your rotation, you don’t want to miss out.  And, if you’re still wondering what to expect out of it, we are here with an in-depth review.

Getting Down to Basics on Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough, created by Kyle Kushman, is an 80% sativa / 20% indica hybrid that comes from crossing Strawberry Fields with Haze.  It’s an extremely sought-after strain around the world.  Not to mention, has been a staple of the market for many years.  Strawberry Cough yields about 22%-26% THC, which is definitely on the higher side, and has about 1% CBN.  Because it’s 80% sativa territory, many people regard Strawberry Cough as a sativa rather than a hybrid, so don’t be confused if you come across it categorized that way.

What the Buds Look Like

Strawberry Cough is even appealing in terms of how the flower looks.  The buds are known for their medium-sized conical look, which almost makes them look like little Christmas trees.  In terms of their color, they have a distinctive neon green hue that makes them stand out.  They’re covered in thick, amber-colored hairs, and there’s a generous coating of creamy, white trichomes for good measure.  The buds can be pretty sticky, and overall, they’ve a sugar-frosted appearance that makes them all the more appetizing to connoisseurs.

Growing Techniques for Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough is easy to grow with a flowering time of up to 9 weeks.  It can be cultivated indoors or outdoors.  However, whichever option you choose,  just know that this plant enjoys a warm climate with temperatures up to 85 degrees Fahrenheit.  Strawberry Cough grows bushy on its own without training.  Maintaining low-maintenance techniques such as pruning away nonessential foliage, providing a breeze through the canopy really helps, and even considering growing this strain in a soil garden with organic nutrients.

The Taste and Aroma 

Strawberry Cough probably has one of the most distinctive flavors of any strain, and if you’ve enjoyed this one before, you know exactly what we mean.  The name says it all.  Experience a very powerful notes of fresh, ripe strawberries, with sweetness and tang, both on the inhale and exhale.  The strawberry note really dominates, but there is an equally potent punch of black pepper that makes a lot of people cough – hence the second part of the unconventional name.  As for the aroma, it is basically the same, but with a fresher, greener undertone and a bit more diversity in the spices.

What Makes Strawberry Cough a Hit 

Strawberry Cough is a super useful strain in a lot of ways.  It’s definitely heavy on the sativa side of things, so keep in mind that this may be a strain that’s best kept for daytime toking.  It’s pretty stimulating for most people, and obviously, that could interfere with sleep if you’re sensitive to sativas in that way.  

It’s a strain that gets prescribed for a number of common issues.  People who are prone to PTSD, mood swings, depression, anxiety, stress, and muscle pain.  The strain is not known to be sedating whatsoever, which also means that you can enjoy these fantastic mood effects and body relief without worrying about conking out shortly after the high kicks in.  People also say that Strawberry Cough is fantastic for getting a burst of creativity, as well as enhanced focus, which means it can be super useful when you’re working on projects, and thus, may need a little help.

Type of High You Will Get with Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough’s high is one of the most often described, because of its popularity.  In other words, a lot of people know what they’re in for before they even partake for the first time.  We already said that this is a strain that notoriously causes coughing as you exhale, so that’s going to be your first introduction to its magnificent cannabinoid and terpene profile.  

Its cerebral effects gradually come on within about 5-10 minutes of exhaling, and immediately, you’ll notice a huge mood boost that may leave you smiling for no reason, feeling at total peace.  At the same time, you’ll feel energized, like you’re ready to take on the world.  This may inspire you to get moving physically, or even take on a project at home – creative or otherwise.  Your mood will be sky high, which will bring a sense of optimism about any way that you choose to spend your time.  

This is also a super great strain for socializing.  Bursts of laughter are almost inevitable, as are deep and insightful conversations.  You might feel super chatty as well.

The body high is spectacular, offering a warm and tingly feeling throughout the muscles that never feels heavy or leaves you in a state of couchlock.  You will simply feel deeply relaxed without any sleepiness or grogginess.
