When it comes to modern cannabis genetics, few mysteries remain. Though some debate does exist surrounding the origins of a few popular strains, most are well-documented with verified parentage and history. One notable exception, however, is the sought-after sativa Strawberry Cough. Though the story of how this classic was created remains unknown, there is no question that Strawberry Cough ranks high among the most respected sativa strains ever discovered. Named for its trademark strawberry aroma and flavor, Strawberry Cough is believed to be the result of a cross between rare Dutch sativa genetics and an unknown indica parent. The resulting hybrid is thought to be around 80% sativa, producing small, thin-leafed flowers that require patience to ripen fully. For this reason, harvests of Strawberry Cough will often produce smaller yields than other popular strains and those growing it must be willing to prioritize quality over quantity. Cultivators willing to undertake the time and effort will be rewarded with bright green, red-haired flowers with a look and aroma true to their famous name. A hint of strawberry lingers on the tongue when exhaling, but contrary to its name, Strawberry Cough’s smoke is smooth and no more likely to cause coughing than other common strains. Patients can look forward to its pleasantly energizing effects, mood elevation and improved focus, perfectly suited to daytime use. We’re excited to feature this unique and tasty sativa as our January PSC Gram of the Month.
