Strawberry Cough

Strawberry Cough by Medihead

Last year a bunch of these Strawberry Cough seeds were donated to the grow club by another medical cannabis grower and they came with rave reviews. And, now we can say with confidence that everything we’ve heard is true. Well, except that cough thing. This stuff is so smooth that no coughing is necessary bathe in the fruity sweetness of this bud. It was easy to sprout, easy to grow, grows fast and produces a good amount. The sight of this grow was beyond compare. The trichomes on this strain appear tiny. But, the plant was covered with them. Most interesting, in the last few weeks of flowering, the white hairs turned a vivid red color instead of our usual orange while the foliage took on a deep strawberry and burgundy hues.

Viability

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
These Strawberry Cough Seeds are not large, however they seem mature and have a nice color and striping.. Every single seed we’ve planted so far has sprung up without hesitation and has grown vigorously without any disease or mutations. Strawberry cough appears to be a good candidate for new growers.

Stability

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
We only grew three of these to maturity and the rest of the females, once they were identifiable, were gifted to good homes. But, we did notice that there was a high degree of uniformity overall in these plants.

Stretch

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
100-200% – 80% Sativa? Uh, yep.

Internode space

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
Internode spacing allowed for good airflow, yet was not so long the buds couldn’t mostly fill in. A little long maybe.

Nutrient uptake

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
These beauties are hungry. Feed lots of Cal/Mag because they grow fast.

Flowers

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
Most flowers were medium to large sized buds/kolas with a pleasing shape and density.

“Top”ability

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
All three of these plants had 6-8 tops. More topping may be possible.

Disease resistance

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
This plant is a trooper. It grows well even under poor conditions, root bound, and over watered (tested on one of the extra plants).

Yield

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
Yield was satisfactory. Maybe slightly above average for our lack of light in this setup.

Medicinal Quality

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
Strawberry Cough is a treat, with it’s sweet berry smell and flavor plus an decent rush for a Sativa with a happy creative vibe. This is great medicine for daytime projects or creative work or even, gasp, socializing. Although, it is not as potent as we would like.

This Strawberry Cough was a breeze to sprout and grow. It also grew a decent amount in the less than ideal lighting conditions in our greenhouse.

Notes:

  • The cold-frame/greenhouse wears an opaque greenhouse film that allows approximately 75% of the sunlight through while also only receiving around 2-3 hours of direct sunlight each day in the summer.
  • This year we were testing a homemade composted coco-coir that under performed so it was necessary to feed with hydroponic nutrients once every two weeks and then every week for the last few weeks.
  • Gnats and thrips were detected early in the grow and the organic pesticides worked famously even though we forgot to spray a few weeks and we stopped spraying when early buds began to form.
