Syrupy Sweet Sativa Energy
With a smoke that's thick and syrupy as cough syrup, Strawberry Cough Feminized is something of a contradiction, despite being one of the best Sativa strains in the world.
Thick in the throat, this sugary sweet berry strain is strong enough to induce coughing even in veteran smokers. But if you can handle her, she’s an ideal wake-and-bake for a kick of morning invigoration, far superior to your strawberry Pop Tart breakfast.
Blending Haze and a mysterious clone referred to only as a Strawberry Fields, this weed has been on the 420 scene since the early 2000s and has grown steadily in popularity ever since. Winning the title of Best Flower in the 2013 Cannabis Cup, this herb's unusually secretive lineage has done nothing to deter from her fame, and we know we can’t resist that berry smoke either.
Bestowing invigorating energy and instant mood boost on tokers, Strawberry Cough Fem gets to work as soon as you inhale, ushering in positivity and a feeling of lightness that’s freeing for the mind and energizing for the body.
As well as being an excellent daytime strain, this hybrid is also medicinal, and a great all-natural option for patients seeking reprieve from stress, anxiety and depression. Thanks to 25% THC, she’s also handy as a painkiller, capable of alleviating most mild to moderate ailments.
Growers love this easygoing ganja, as she thrives in almost any environment, is medium-sized and sturdy, and yields well even without additional training techniques. Indoors, odor control systems are recommended to disperse her particularly pungent aroma. Outdoors, guerilla growing is ideal to let this plant really shine and show you just how much you can harvest.
Flavor and Fragrance of Strawberry Cough Feminized
For cannabis connoisseurs seeking out the sweetest strains on the market, Strawberry Cough Feminized will hit the mark nicely, releasing the enticing aroma of sugar and berries when you break apart the buds. Once lit up, her appeal to veteran tokers becomes more evident, as her scent develops a faintly earthy, herbal twist.
Named for good reason, it’s not because this stuff tastes like cough medicine, but because her oh-so-sweet and sticky smoke can be rough on the throat, likely to induce a bit of a cough on the exhale. Thankfully, that’s tempered by a distinctly sumptuous strawberry aftertaste, that lingers in the mouth with a hint of spice.
Packing a mean punch that’s well-loved in the cannabis community, Strawberry Cough Feminized is everything you’d expect from a sugary sweet 25% THC strain. Luring tokers in with a quick-hitting cerebral buzz, this high almost immediately brightens outlook and boosts mood.
This blissful elevation is swiftly followed by a burst of energy and invigoration that makes this ganja a great wake-and-bake or daytime strain, filling your mind and body with vigor without inducing hyperactivity or agitation.
Of course, with the awesomeness of this strain come a few side effects. Like most marijuana, Strawberry Cough can bring about dry, red and bloodshot eyes and cottonmouth. Both of which are alleviated by drinking plenty of water and with OTC eye drops where necessary.
Though these are manageable, those new to cannabis or with a sensitivity to THC might find themselves subjected to more serious effects, particularly when over consumed. These include headaches, dizziness, anxiety, and occasionally paranoia, and can be avoided by keeping your toking low and slow, doses small, or switching to a milder strain.
Medical Uses of Strawberry Cough Feminized
Thanks to the cerebral highs of this strain, she can offer many benefits as medicinal marijuana (MMJ) for those struggling with a variety of psychological ailments.
Immediately improving outlook and mood, Strawberry Cough Fem can boost happiness to alleviate the low mood and intrusive thoughts associated with anxiety, stress, depression and PTSD. Boasting an invigorating and energizing kick, she’s also handy for those suffering from chronic fatigue or insomnia - at least, temporarily.
With a high THC content, this herb is also therapeutic for patients with more physical troubles, and has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that can aid those with arthritis, muscle spasms and migraines.
In addition, like most marijuana, Strawberry Cough may well bring on the munchies, which can be useful for those struggling with nausea and lack of appetite as a side effect of chemotherapy treatments, or a symptom of eating disorders.
Growing Strawberry Cough Feminized Seeds
A medium-sized specimen with particularly hefty yields, Strawberry Cough Feminized is an easygoing, straightforward strain to grow with notably dense nugs spread across her chunky, sturdy branches. Emerald and amethyst, the bushy purple leaves of this strain give a majestic and royal look to her appearance, meaning bag appeal is guaranteed.
Pungent right from the grow room, discretion can be difficult with these beauties as their sweet aroma entices even before harvest time. However, this is her biggest vice, as she’s otherwise entirely hassle-free and thrives in almost any well-controlled environment.
A Screen of Green (SCROG) setup combined with hydroponics can boost this strain's already mighty yields. And, if you’re concerned about keeping things subtle, an odor filtration system can work wonders. Once she’s ready for harvesting (after around 9 weeks of flowering), Strawberry Cough Fem yields around 1.31 ounces of nugs per square foot.
Outdoor growing is a good choice for this weed, as she’s able to truly flourish and reach her full potential in a warm and sunny alfresco environment. Outdoors, she can reach up to 5.5 feet in height, which (combined with her potent aroma) might make her a good choice for guerilla growing, if you want your neighbors to keep their noses out.
She’ll be ready for harvesting around the last week of October in the northern hemisphere, and offers up around 17 ounces per plant.
A truly iconic hybrid Sativa, Strawberry Cough Feminized is sweet and sticky right from the start. Breaking apart these nugs will release a strawberry-herb aroma that’s hard to resist despite the cough-inducing smoke these buds produce.
More energizing than the average sugar high, this marijuana invigorates the mind and pushes away negativity with her mood-boosting properties and wake-and-bake-qualities. Such excellent Sativa traits make her a choice MMJ for those seeking reprieve from psychological symptoms of anxiety and stress, and these THC levels aren't half bad at pain relief either.
In the right hands, Strawberry Cough is a supremely heavy yielder, made all the better by these feminized seeds. Even in the hands of a novice grower, these plants will thrive in a controlled setup and fill your grow room with aromatic berry notes and plenty of dense bugs ready for harvesting. Outdoors, prepare to be amazed as she flourishes under the sun, and her yield goes up and up.
