Strawberry Cough - Seed and Clone
(grown by a friend usually grows by seed will see whose gear it is.)
So was able to do a little research, this batch was grown from seed problem is he doesn't know which company they were from. He does usually buy dutch genetics so would assume Dutch Passion Strawberry Cough but thats only an assumption. These are fairly dense, tight nugs that take a little bit of effort to break apart. These were dried properly and manicured fairly well, lacking a cure though. This batch had also gotten beat up pretty bad by the time it made it to my hands, this is what happens when storing your nuggets in plastic bags, thats a big no in my book. Usually my friend takes much better care of his nugs and stores them in the curing jars, sadly didn't happen with this batch. I know this poor handling of the flowers and lack of a cure negatively effected the final product.
Before breaking apart you are given a very pleasant strawberry fruity fragrance with a hint of skunk. Once broken apart you are given strong aroma of; strawberries, fruit, earth and skunk. The smoke on this one is thick, a bit hot and a little harsh initially, although not horrible. I'm guessing this is were the "cough" part of the name comes in. Being from Colorado and used to smoking the Cough an amazing local haze variety since the late 90's. Any batch I get of Strawberry Cough leaves me a little disappointed with the lack of the haze influence, thats only an association with the name cough. Back on topic, these flowers have a very pleasant flavor, it comes in very earthy and skunky with subtle hints of strawberry. Its interesting in that, the flavor you get on this one is nearly the opposite of the smell, where the strawberry is dominate, but in flavor the earthy tones take the lead.
The high on this one seems to be very balanced between sativa/indica leaning a little more on the sativa side of the spectrum. You feel it in the head initially good for creativity or a conversation, then the indica side is felt relaxing the body. This is by no means a couch lock variety, could be great for completing the afternoons errands. Smoking too much of this or all day long and will be hard to avoid a nap late in the day. Overall a decent smoke, has a nice hybrid high, lovely smell, pleasant taste, with decent potency. I don't usually put grades on bud but with this one I would have to give it a solid "B" overall, its by no means fire or anything insanely special but is a very enjoyable smoke.
If anyone has any info, pics or experiences with this strain any input is welcome.
