Strawberry Cough, a hybrid comprising 75 percent Sativa and 25 percent Indica, is a firm favourite with cannabis connoisseurs that put a high value on flavour and aroma as well as potency. This weed, a cross between Strawberry Fields and Haze, originally came from Connecticut, later crossing the Atlantic to the Netherlands. High Times declared it as one of its strains of the year in 2005.
This weed starts off with a strong hit that is both trippy and cerebral, followed by a high-energy buzz – so it’s a good strain to smoke when you’ve got things to do. There’s a strong fruity taste with hints of strawberry and pine and the sweet aroma is reminiscent of burning incense. In medical use, it’s chiefly recommended for anxiety reduction.
Strawberry Cough seeds grow into plants that are about one metre in height and have slim, tight buds with a conical shape set on the ends of longish but robust branches. The plant develops a marked purplish hue as it matures. It has a medium-level THC content of between 12 and 15 percent.
Indoors the Strawberry Cough seeds will do well in either a hydroponics set-up or a soil medium and flowering time is seven to eight weeks. Attentive growers can expect yields of around 400 grams per square metre.
Outdoor growth in areas with plenty of warm summer sunshine produces plants that are ready for harvest in October. This plant is a heavy feeder so you can really give the plant a boost when it flowers by giving it plenty of nutrients.
If you enjoy a smoke with a complex, fruity flavour and a hit that leaves you feeling energised, this Strawberry Cough review says it’s a perfect choice. This weed avoids the heavy couchlock that some strains give while providing an almost trippy high.
