Strain Review: Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough is known for its sweet smell of fresh strawberries and an expanding sensation that can make even the most seasoned consumer cough. Strawberry Cough is a potent sativa blend with unknown genetic origins. It’s hard not to like the uplifting effects of this Sativa-like strain. It has heavy haze effects mainly in the head and it takes away all of your anxieties without knocking you out. Patients can expect clear headed effects that will effectively remove all the anxiety and stress that is so ubiquitous in our daily lives today. A personal favorite of many patients, this strain will be a main staple in the afficionado section for many dispensaries.

The buds from Strawberry Cough tend to be tight and shaped like narrow pine cones, and may become elongated. They are bright green in hue with distinctive bold red hairs that seemingly sprout up from everywhere. Just as the name implies, there is a definite aroma of strawberries. This smell is exponentially multiplied upon a few turns in the grinder. Not just a one-trick pony, there are spicy, earthy undertones as well as a sweet, sugary finish that seems to be common in most Haze strains.

The smoke is smooth and quite thick and feels nice on the throat on the inhale. The smoke on the exhale was also smooth and full of a strawberry bodied flavor. The high is energizing while being relaxing at the same time. The effects creep up on you slowly and took about 10 minutes to really kick in. Once the high took hold, it was a positive, uplifting and at times euphoric experience. Strawberry Cough is a nice mild high that boasts many beautiful subtleties. I can see why this is a much sought-after strain. The creamy taste and pleasing effects have a smoothness that is unmatched in other sativa-dominant hybrids. Appetite control and mood elevation are just two of the many positive medicinal effects.
