Strawberry Cough is a sativa dominant strain known for its unique scent that is reminiscent of strawberries. Its origins are unclear, but it is believed that this strain is the creation of one Kyle Kushman. Kushman crossed the seeds that grew in a strawberry field with an original Haze strain to create Strawberry cough.
This strain won the Cannabis Cup for the Best Flower title in 2013.
