Strawberry Cough Aroma, Flavor and Appearance:

Strawberry Cough Strain

Much as the name implies, the overall aroma of Strawberry Cough is predominantly strawberry, reminiscent of the fresh berries growing in a country field. Some undertones also peak through the scent profile, with hints of earth and skunk, which might be why this marijuana strain tends to cause coughing after it has been inhaled. The scent immediately consumes any room it’s in, lingering for a long time, even after the buds themselves have been locked tightly away.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a few major differences. The overall taste is, of course, rich in fruity strawberries, but sparks of earth also present themselves, similar to when you eat a berry picked straight from the dirt. The aftertaste is a bit herbal and spicy, which will usually linger inside the mouth long after the smoke has cleared. Your taste buds will become especially pleased with this flavor profile, as the strawberry is not only tasty, but also very sweet and sugary, satisfying even the most extreme sweet tooths.

Appearance-wise, the buds are beautiful, featuring a multitude of colors that complement each other pleasantly. The sugar leaves are shades of violet purple, neon green and earthy yellow, with frequent patches of bright orange pistils, or tiny hairs, that curl and twist amongst the frosty, smokable leaves. The sugar leaves are quite densely coated with trichomes, taking on a crystalline appearance which closely mimics the first frost of the year when the roads all develop a thin coating of ice, which glimmers and shines underneath the streetlight.

Strawberry Cough Grow Info:

Strawberry Cough is an especially easy to cultivate strain, making it a suitable option for a variety of growers, with a wide range of skill level and experience.

A small amount of maintenance can, however, support healthy thriving of this marijuana type, with regular pruning of the excess foliage and proper ventilation both helping the crop to flourish.

    Just tried it, and yeah cough is a great name for it…lol. I’m a veteran that battles depression and PTSD on a daily basis so I’m always looking for a good strain..

    I remember the first time I smoked Strawberry Cough back in 2013!! Since then it has been part of my staple diet! I have suffered from depression for 8 years, and I feel that this smoke is the best medicine I have ever tried. I would recommend those thinking about giving it a go to take the plunge! It only requires a little bit to work wonders.
