1970’s Original Blueberry
Original Strawberry Cough
Strawberry Cough genetics have an almost mythical origin and a unique, highly sought-after effect. The legendary genetics are partly North American and partly European. She is a hybrid cannabis strain which leans more to the Sativa side. The plants are beautiful to look at, some special phenotypes display purple hues in the buds and these are our favorites. Decades after introduction, Strawberry Cough feminised seeds remain a firm favourite with connoisseur repeat growers and staff. The fresh smell and sweet taste of strawberries is sure to leave a smile on your face.
Strawberry Cough has flowers which are covered in trichomes with occasional reddish pistils and colourful purple/pinkish hues in the flower and leaves. The aroma is unmistakably that of garden-fresh strawberries. The appealing scent may also have a real candy sweetness too. Some phenotypes may express more of a peppery, spicy profile with a milder strawberry scent. These are also a real delight to smoke/vape.
The initial taste is that of ripe strawberries. On the exhale, the flavor has more of a sweeter taste with only a hint of spice. The strawberry scented smoke from this variety can be thick and rich making you cough, hence the name. Strawberry Cough exhibits an especially rich and flavoursome range of terpenes that any cannabis connoisseur will simply adore. A well cured jar of potent, resin soaked Strawberry Cough buds is difficult to beat! Few hybrid strains can match the combination of beautiful aroma and great visual appearance with such powerful and long-lasting blissful effects.
Strawberry Cough is a relatively easy strain to grow, especially when compared to other Sativa dominant varieties. It’s not as tall/stretchy as some Sativas like Silver Haze, Amnesia Haze or Desfrán. But the THC-rich Strawberry Cough genetics deliver you the same supremely satisfying smoke/vape quality as that from pure Sativas.
The high is very cerebral. It’s strongly psychoactive, clear, social and euphoric. Both medical and recreational users comment that Strawberry Cough is a uniquely creative strain. This sharp focus is ideal for working on tasks that involve some degree of creativity or problem-solving.
Sativa lovers know that their long flowering plants may sometimes require a little more attention than fast finishing Indica’s. In addition to the longer grow cycle, some Sativa’s can be more sensitive to nutrients making them perhaps a little trickier for beginners. However, experienced sativa growers know that the genetics are well worth the extra effort and bloom time. That’s because a well grown Sativa can give you a soaring psychedelic high like no other. In the case of Strawberry Cough, you can expect a powerful yet blissfully enjoyable experience from proven genetics which have been adored for decades. These are top quality feminised cannabis seeds with a fully deserved reputation.
Dutch Passion Strawberry Cough has just the right amount of Indica content to make her less fussy with nutrients and also to help control stretch. This makes her more manageable in the grow-room and easier for indoor growers. The plants tend to be a little shorter and bushy than most Sativa’s. She grows to a medium height but still retains the most important characteristics for growers who prefer Sativa’s.
Strawberry Cough’s ongoing popularity has been fuelled by experiences of growers and smokers around the world. This powerful hybrid strain has a particularly loyal fanbase of repeat growers that simply adore the special high. Many growers are attracted by the legendary name and cult reputation of Strawberry Cough. The Dutch Passion team think that the taste and superb high are the main reasons that the strain has gained such global popularity. However, there is another reason why Strawberry Cough deserves its place as one of the most iconic sativa strains of all time and that is the ease of growth.
Most of those that grow Indicas or Indica-dominant hybrids do so for good reasons. The best ones are easy to grow and they can be quite unfussy even when grown slightly outside their normal conditions or nutrient range. Indicas or Indica-dominant hybrids grow well under a wide range of growing conditions and may even tolerate unstable conditions. Strawberry Cough may be a sativa dominant hybrid, but she has a notable robustness similar to indica dominant hybrids. Strawberry Cough grows relatively quickly like a hybrid, although without a great deal of stretch. The leaves show some hybrid traits as well. However in flowering the leaves become thinner and longer, showing more of the Sativa characteristics.
The buds show a mix of Sativa and Indica genes. The buds are cone shaped, the blooms are long and compact making her easy to trim. Although the high is very Sativa-like, the buds are less fluffy and prone to fox-tailing than you might expect. There are definitely some phenotypes that are prone to fox-tailing but even these buds can be quite dense and compact.
The genetics used to create Strawberry Cough ensure the following traits :
Strawberry Cough is a forgiving plant which can be grown by beginners looking to grow their first Sativa dominant variety. She is also an excellent choice for connoisseurs seeking the legendary Strawberry Cough experience!
Strawberry Cough is known for its beneficial effects which boost energy and creativity whilst relieving stress and anxiety. The anti-anxiety effect is one the main reasons she is so widely appreciated by the medical cannabis community. It can also give the user a deep sense of euphoria and focus, making this a good strain to work on everyday tasks or to complete creative and artistic jobs. Strawberry Cough provides the user with a high which will last for several hours. Perfect for a daytime boost or a social evening with friends and family.
We would recommend a vegetative period of around 5-6 weeks. Although she is a Sativa dominant hybrid, she doesn’t stretch as much as pure Sativa varieties. She grows into plants of medium height.
Strawberry Cough is not suitable for outdoor growing in colder climates. Outdoors she can take around 9-11 weeks to harvest making her susceptible to mould and fungus during long periods of bad weather. Growing in a Mediterranean climate should be possible but for the best results we recommend growing her indoors.
The flowering time is about 9-10 weeks. In combination with the recommend veg period she takes about 14-16 weeks from seed to harvest.
Strawberry Cough will give medium to large yields; around 400 grams per m2 on average. More is possible when you optimise grow conditions.
Strawberry Cough is still one of the best Sativa cannabis seed varieties available today. She hits all the right notes for an uncomplicated grow. This makes her perfect for beginners. Growing her in a SOG or SCROG setup will definitely give the best yield. Her stems can be bent and supercropped to increase yields even more. If you want to keep an even canopy we highly recommend supercropping techniques. She is also a good plant to grow the natural way, her stems are strong enough to prevent her collapsing under the weight of her own blooms.
Discussion over Strawberry Cough’s breeding and original genetic lineage will no doubt continue. As will debate about which is the finest phenotype. The best genetic lines have always attracted the most discussion! However you can be sure that Dutch Passion Strawberry Cough will give you that original, genuine Strawberry experience which you are looking for.
The iconic genetics have been proven over many years by thousands of repeat growers and produce superb quality results with a famously enjoyable sativa high. The ease of growth, great high and the unique sweet strawberry taste make this a variety that all growers should try.
Potency levels are consistently high with most phenotypes ranging between 15-20% THC. Some recent lab results (2019 Spannabis) showed Strawberry Cough hitting the 20% THC mark, which makes this very tasty strawberry Sativa dominant variety a great addition for your personal headstash!
Strawberry Cough is only available in feminised seeds.
