Calling all strawberry lovers! This week’s strain spotlight is a tasty one. Today, we’re taking a closer look into the popular (and mouthwatering) Strawberry Cough strain. 


As a strain that’s been on the market for a while, you’ve likely tried this one before — or at least a variation of it. So, what makes Strawberry Cough so special? 


Don’t worry: we’ll tell ya.

The Origin of the Strawberry Cough Strain

First, let’s start with where Strawberry Cough came from. 


Typically, people associate the origin of Strawberry Cough with Kyle Kushman, a legendary grower and cannabis activist. 


The story goes that Kushman received a clone of a mysterious strain that had remarkable strawberry scents and flavors. 


This clone was supposedly given to him by a novice grower in Connecticut, who had discovered this unique plant growing between strawberry fields. 


Kushman then refined and stabilized the strain, ultimately naming it “Strawberry Cough” for its sweet flavor and the distinctive cough it can induce even in the most experienced smokers due to its highly potent effects.

What Kind of Weed is Strawberry Cough?

Interestingly enough, the Strawberry Cough strain is one with slightly mysterious genetics. 


Most people know the Strawberry Cough strain as sativa-dominant. This means that the strain’s primary genetics have sativa qualities, though there are slight indica qualities as well. 


The most common story about the strain’s genetics points to a cross between a Strawberry Fields strain and an unspecified Haze strain. 


This combination is believed to give Strawberry Cough its distinctive strawberry aroma and taste, along with the cerebral, uplifting effects characteristic of Haze varieties.


But, we simply don’t know more than that about this elusive strain — other than it’s super tasty and potent, of course.

What Does Strawberry Cough Smell & Taste Like?

Strawberry Cough is celebrated for its distinct taste and smell profile, which is a major part of its appeal and namesake. 


The most notable feature of Strawberry Cough’s aroma is its strong, sweet strawberry scent, of course. It’s reminiscent of fresh strawberries, making it a delightful and inviting strain.


Beneath the sweet berry aroma, users may detect earthy and skunky undertones, adding complexity to the overall olfactory experience.


Some phenotypes of Strawberry Cough also exhibit a subtle floral note, adding to the strain’s aromatic depth.


Upon consumption, the taste mirrors the smell with a pronounced sweet strawberry flavor that’s both refreshing and enjoyable. Alongside the sweetness, there’s often a slight spicy or peppery kick on the exhale, which adds an intriguing contrast to the fruity taste.


The finish can leave a herbal or earthy aftertaste, grounding the strawberry sweetness with a more traditional cannabis flavor profile.
