Strawberry-Flavored Cannabis Strains
There are very few things in this world that aren’t made better with the addition of strawberries. Desserts, cereal, smoothies, and drinks can all be enhanced with the summer sweetness of strawberries. That’s not to discount the power of strawberries all on their own, either. Picked fresh off the vine, strawberries are such a quintessential summer treat that the strawberry flavor is added to thousands of products decorating the shelves of your grocery store.
Did you know that you can also find the very flavors that make strawberries smell and taste so delicious in cannabis too? It’s true! Strawberry flavored and scented marijuana exists.
How Do Strains Get Their Strawberry Flavor?
Terpenes are responsible for the flavor and aroma of any plant in the world. They give strawberries their flavor, basil its sharp sweetness, and pepper its spicy bite. The same terpenes that are found in strawberries are also found in certain strains of marijuana. This means that when they are consumed, they have a similar taste and smell to your favorite summertime fruit.
Because strawberry is such a popular flavor, many growers actually try to create or preserve the terpenes that make a strawberry scent or taste when they breed different strains of marijuana together. The result is a smorgasbord of cannabis that smells like you opened a jar of jam.
What Strains Taste Like Strawberries?
There are many strains that contain a strawberry flavor, but some of them put that sweet fruit front and center. The following strains are sure to please strawberry lovers everywhere:
Strawberry Cough Strain
If you enjoy sativa and strawberries, you should give Strawberry Cough a try. It’s a sativa-leaning hybrid created when Haze was crossed with Strawberry Fields. Strawberry Cough gets its name for its high potency (22-26% THC) and a peppery bite on the back end of its flavor. Enjoy this one carefully.
Strawberry Banana Strain
Strawberry Banana is an indica-dominant strain that was created when Strawberry Bubblegum and Banana Kush were crossed. Its flavors are split between a sweet strawberry and a tropical banana, and it boasts a THC potency of 22-26%.
Strawberry Shortcake Strain
Another sativa-dominant strain, Strawberry Shortcake exists thanks to a cross between Juliet and Strawberry Diesel. Strawberry Shortcake is popular among both recreational cannabis consumers and medical marijuana patients for its moderate to high THC potency (18-23%).
Strawberry Cheesecake Strain
To get a dessert-flavored treat like this cannabis strain, growers crossed White Widow with Chronic and Cheese. The result is a potent (22% THC) strain that tastes exactly like strawberry cheesecake. Not only does this flower taste delicious, it’s also quite lovely to look at. It’s dark green with bright, flame-orange hairs dusted in crystal-like trichomes.
Strawberry Lemonade Strain
The truth is, we don’t know exactly where this perfectly balanced (50% indica/50% sativa) hybrid came from. Some people suspect it’s a cross between Lemon OG and Strawberry Cough, but whatever strains it hails from, Strawberry Lemonade has made a name for itself. If you love a glass of strawberry lemonade, you’ll love this marijuana strain.
As always, because most of these strains are quite potent, you should start slowly when consuming them to ensure you don’t overindulge.
