What Are The Genetics Behind Kyle Kushman’s Strawberry Cough?
As the story goes, Kyle Kushman was gifted a clone from a personal friend and amateur cannabis breeder. He hadn’t expected much, but was surprised to find that the strain carried a distinct strawberry aroma. It has developed into one of Kyle’s favorite strains in the time since, and for good reason.
The Strawberry Cough strain’s genetics consist of the Haze strain and Strawberry Fields – an Indica-dominant hybrid that is said to have been grown in a strawberry field. It is a clone-only variety of cannabis, although there are other strains that share the same name.
The reason for this being that Kyle Kushman gave clones of the his Strawberry Cough to the Dutch Passion Seed Company in Amsterdam. With that said, they list an entirely different genetic lineage for their strain, so who knows what’s going on there? I don’t.
It’s for this exact reason that Medical Jane is working behind the scenes with breeders and lab-testing facilities to show the differences between each phenotype. Using anecdotal data, we hope to determine how variable terpene and cannabinoid profiles truly affect patients.
