Brief history of Strawberry Cough Marijuana strain
A clone was gifted to Kyle Kushman that had been grown by an unnamed breeder in a strawberry field in either Connecticut or Vermont. Medium in THC Perfect for Beginners. The original breeder claimed that it was the proximity to the berries that gave the strain its flavor. Kyle brought the clone home and expected little of it at first but once the full aroma poured into his nostrils he knew he might have something special.
He would cross that Strawberry Field strain with the Original Haze, a potent mix of landrace Sativas. The end result is a strain that tastes soft and sweet, often with at least a hint of strawberries. Some find the strain a smooth smoke but most throats are tickled by the Strawberry Cough.

The Kyle Kushman variety of Strawberry Cough is clone only but Dutch Passion took it upon themselves to give this strain a seed form. Crossing it with a previously unused strain of European descent, they were able to preserve the flavor and effects.
Dutch Passion’s strain can be grown outdoors in a semi-tropical environment but prefers to stay inside. Ready for harvest in early October, plants typically flower for around nine weeks.
The strain’s award-winning flowers are large and chunky. Despite its dominant sativa genetics, Strawberry Cough has a more indica-typical bud structure, with solid and densely-packed leaves. The sativa genes show, however, in the buds’ tapered, conical shape, less like popcorn and more like tiny pinecones.
