Let me take you down, cause we’re going to…Get HIGH! This cross of Strawberry Fields x Haze has a lot to brag about. If you haven’t had the pleasure…
Meet Strawberry Cough.
I had just finished a long day at work. I needed a boost, so I popped into Project Releaf. I was searching for a stellar sativa and found this little strawberry lady on the “Top Flight” shelf. She caught my eye. The jar read 28.9% percent THC. I could tell she was more than that. A sultry redhead, with a lust for lips! I asked my budtender for the most photogenic nug, thanked them and headed home.
I have never reviewed a stain of flower for anyone in this manner before. My goal is to be in-depth, entertaining, educational, and unbiased. For consistency I will be using a new, or clean as new pipe for every flower, every time. I will be judging based upon four main categories. Now that I have that all squared away, let’s get to it!!
This Usher Rx Farm champion jumps right off the top shelf! Rich, dense, glittery clusters of trichomes dance across the leaves, glistening like morning frost. The bright lime green and purple leaves fight to not be lost in the background. Deep red hairs dot the bud sparsely. In the right light, this shit actually sparkled! I broke a chunk off the main stem. What looked to be a fluffy, airy, or loose bud was actually THICK with hash.
I give it 4 out of 5 ?
The first thing I notice is faint hints of berries. It took me back to picking fresh strawberries as a child. To me it was more of a berry medley, not specifically strawberries. This blends with sweet cream, lemons and pine, finished with the slightest touch of pepper. My allergies may have distorted the terpenes a bit. They have been really working me over.

I let her rip! Surprisingly, the first impression was that the berries were underwhelming. A whipped cream or brioche quality held strong throughout. Pepper lingered on the pallet slightly.
I took a second hit. This hit was much smaller. I inhaled less deeply, and I let the smoke roll around my mouth a bit. This go around had a more strawberry flavor through to the finish. It was light and bright. Also, I coughed so hard my neighbors probably put on masks.
I give it 3 out of 5 ?
Three hits and about two minutes in, the effects started creeping up. I don’t know if it was the hacking fit jarring my brain around or the bud itself. There was a definite spike in blood pressure, warming of the face and ears, mild brief sweating, burning eyes, and an explosion of energy to go with my elevated heart rate.
Aside from needing eye drops, it felt equivalent to an espresso shot! I was giggly but focused. Waves of joy washed over me as the high took a sharp turn toward relaxation. Although she leans more toward sativa, my anxiety and pain faded away, leaving me with the paranoia-free, full-body fuzzies.
I give it 5 out of 5 ?
Strawberry Cough was exactly what I was looking for. I needed to get things done, I needed energy without the jitters, and I got it in stripes! If you are just fresh out of bed, or needing a pick me up to get through a tough day, it’s a great choice.
I don’t recommend smoking it within earshot of your boss. The bark is just as bad as the bite with this strain! The only downside to this bud was the underwhelming flavor. That was my ONLY issue. My final rating will be…
4 out of 5 ?
