Strawberry Cough Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19 - 21.4% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.41 - 0.58% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.36 - 0.9% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.3 - 0.88% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.31 - 0.32% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.17 - 0.8% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

No; it doesn’t make the user sleepy. Being a Sativa-dominant strain, it’s energetic and causes a mild sense of euphoria. Strawberry Cough is generally used by those who need a boost of energy. It inspires creative work, such as painting, writing, and composing. It also works well on social occasions, since it makes you conversational.
Strawberry Cough is a taste-focused strain with a Sativa-dominant character. It was crossbred by Kyle Kushman, who used Haze to balance out an Indica-dominant strain grown next to strawberries. Users love it because of its awesome taste and the breezy effect it has on their mental state. It’s a good choice for daily use, but it’s also perfect for night use after a stressful day.
The smoke of Strawberry Cough is smooth, but hash enough to irritate your lungs. They react to it as an irritant, so you start coughing in an attempt to preserve your lungs from damage. You can make this effect milder if you don’t hold the smoke in your lungs, so you won’t irritate them too much.
