Strawberry Cough is a sativa-dominant hybrid created by Kyle Kushman that won Best Flower in the 2013 Cannabis Cup. It’s made by crossing Strawberry Fields and an unknown Haze. It is 80% Cannabis sativa and 20% Cannabis indica and has a high THC content, regularly measuring between 20% and 25% THC.
Kushman is credited with creating Joey’s Strain and Cherry Lopez and cultivating Purple Kush, but Strawberry Cough is one of his favorite flavors.
Strawberry Cough is a highly-regarded sativa strain noted for its cerebral, energetic, uplifting effects and sweet, fresh strawberry taste. Due to its effects, Strawberry Cough may be useful for alleviating stress, anxiety, and depression.
Kushman developed Strawberry Cough in California, but one of its parents, Strawberry Fields, is actually an indica from New York. According to legend, this indica was grown next to strawberry fields to mask the odor and started to take on the smell of the strawberries nearby.
