STRAWBERRY COUGH STRAIN INFORMATION
Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid
Genetics: Strawberry Fields x Haze
Geographic Origin: Connecticut, USA
Seed Company/Clone: Kyle Kushman’s Strawberry Cough (KKSC) is clone-only, though Dutch Passion released a seed version.
Description: Known for its sweet and Hazy smell, this special clone-only strain was discovered by chance and went on to become a High times Strain of the Year in 2005 while also becoming a major piece in breeding projects for its collection of terpenes. The 100% Indica Strawberry Fields mother lends stoutness, weight, and that lovely sweetness to the strain, while the Haze seems to contribute the majority of the effects.
Story: Kyle Kushman (the widely-accepted source of the strain) received a box of clones from an inexperienced friend and thought nothing of it until he noticed a strong aroma of strawberries in the box. He held onto the clones and it turned out to be a pretty special and unique plant.
Awards: 2005 High Times Top 10 Strain of the Year
Flowering Time: 8-9 weeks for the original clone, seed versions can finish earlier if they’re Strawberry Fields-dominant.
Preferred Growing Medium: Grows well anywhere, it’s a hearty plant thanks to the Indica side of its parentage, branching out and staying relatively short throughout its life cycle. Good for SCROG setups, not advisable for SOG due to the side branching.
Scent: The sweet berry cream elements dominate, but there is a sharp Haze in the background.
Flavor: Slightly flowery and almost soapy at times, there is a bit of fruity sweetness, but it changes places from the smell and takes its turn in the background.
Effects: Uplifting and cerebral, bordering on trippy at times… the Haze definitely comes through most strongly in the experience. It does carry a solid body relaxation component, but ultimately it’s a head-centric strain.
