Strains Sense: Strawberry Cough

It’s simple: a potent strain that tastes like strawberry and will make you cough as you feel its powerful hit.

Strawberry Cough is a strain that is surrounded by mystery. There are many rumors about its origin and its particular dominant strawberry smell, and we may never know the answers. But we are grateful to enjoy its uplifting and balanced effects.

One thing that we do know is that this strain is a real winner, from its delicious smell and taste to its inevitable cough-inducing high to its incredible buzz, even for the most experienced consumers. No wonder it is such a popular strain.

Origin

As we told you, no one really knows where the Strawberry Cough comes from, but rumors abound.

Some claim that it is the work of Kyle Kushman, but he himself has denied it, confirming that he was only given a baffling clone. The clone had been grown in a strawberry field somewhere on the east coast of the US, probably in Connecticut. The original breeder claimed that the strawberry field is what gave this Sativa its distinctive smell. Is this completely true? Who knows.

What is certain is that Kushman began sharing the strain freely among growers in New York and later across the country when he moved to California. As a result, several varieties of Strawberry Cough have emerged across the country.
