Strawberry Cough Strain Information:
Strawberry Cough AAAA+ is a bracing, taste-focused sativa hybrid. Its unmistakable strawberry flavour is the result of crossbreeding by cannabis pioneer Kyle Kushman. Its impressive buds won the title of Best Flower in the 2013 Cannabis Cup. Fruity and light, this strain is an uplifting and productive smoke that can be enjoyed in a variety of settings.
The strain’s award-winning flowers are large and chunky. Despite its dominant sativa genetics, Strawberry Cough AAAA strain has a more indica-typical bud structure, with solid and densely-packed leaves. The sativa genes show, however, in the buds’ tapered, conical shape, less like popcorn and more like tiny pinecones.
The flowers are covered in cloudy amber trichomes that lend the leaves a slightly yellowish appearance. Red — rather than orange — pistils are threaded through the sticky leaves. The mild scent of strawberries wafts up from the buds, mixed with a little bit of peppery spice. When buds are combusted, they give off a herbal cloud, reminiscent of parent strain Haze.
Smoke from this strain is typically harsh, causing many users to cough and sometimes leading their eyes to water. The initial taste is of ripe strawberries, without any hint of skunkiness or musk. On the exhale, the strawberry flavour has some more sweetness. This saccharine berry scent lingers for a while after users have toked.
Strawberry Cough’s AAAA+ thoughtful high settles in almost immediately. Users may feel initially unsettled, but, in the right set and setting, can embrace the sharp focus associated with this strain — it’s great for deep conversation, reading, or working on tasks that involve some degree of creativity or problem-solving.
