Though the origin of this specific strain is a bit hazy, sources point out that Strawberry Cough comes from the Haze lineage. There are some who claim that it is a cross between Haze and Strawberry Fields. Regardless, one thing’s for sure – it gives users a sweet smelling and tasting experience along with some inevitable coughing.

This strain is practically safe to use day or night because it does not solidly knock out users. Just like its taste and smell, the experience is subtle and very uplifting. It does not distract anyone from going on with their day to day tasks.

Odor and Flavors
From its name, it is not hard to figure out the smell or the taste. One puff already takes users to a strawberry field in a matter of seconds. It has a gentle aroma of berry that is easy on the throat but can be tingly in the lungs. As a result, some people may end up coughing a little bit.
The earthy smell also reminds users of walking into the woods with a lot of berries around. As the smoke leaves the mouth, there is a sweet taste that usually clings to the tongue for that distinct yummy aftertaste.
Strawberry Cough is considered a mild or subtle strain, and that is why it is okay to use during the day. It has an expansive type of ‘high’ making it very popular among new and advanced users.
As alluded to, the smoke of this strain is a little harsh and can cause some coughing. Beyond that, real enjoyment begins. Inexperienced users do not have a hard time adjusting to this hybrid because of its delayed and gentle effects.

Growing Strawberry Cough
Strawberry Cough is a hybrid with pretty flowers that are large and stocky. Trichomes covering it gives it an amber to light yellowish look. This plant has densely packed sticky leaves that have red pistils.
The berry and peppery scent of the strain come from its cone-shaped buds that look like little pinecones. Another thing to take note is that this plant is resistant to pests, which makes the task of tending to it easier.
Relatively, this strain is very easy to grow. It does not grow so tall and maintains a medium height which is perfect for both indoors and outdoors. The plant loves the hot and humid weather (up to 21 degrees Celsius) so planting it outside is not a problem. It has a flowering period that occurs in the last week of October. Upon harvest, growers can pick up at least 400 grams of buds or more.
