Strawberry Fields is a strain that lives up to its name. Figuratively, its scent is enough to transport one to a field of strawberries but the real kicker is its flavor profile. Drawn in, the Indica-dominant bud doubles the sweet and sour flavors of the real fruit in the palate. Moreover, its tantalizing smoke delivers a tranquilizing, body-crushing high that can put users to sleep.
Information about Strawberry Fields:
It was not difficult to create Strawberry Fields. Sagarmatha Seeds drew inspiration from the almost-perfect Strawberry Cough, a predominantly Sativa strain with a mind-boggling psychedelic high.
Sadly, its thick smoke can irritate the throat that leads to a coughing fit. To address this, the breeders added in an Indica parent that remains unnamed to this day. Doing so will also help harden Strawberry Cough’s lanky structure.
Resulting from the union is a powerhouse with THC levels that average between 18% to 24%. Undoubtedly, a potent Indica-dominant strain that boasts the sturdiness of its parent. Though its recreational use is widely recorded, the strain retains enough benefits to be of pharmacological value to the medical marijuana community.

Like other Indica-dominant plants, Strawberry Fields is a slow starter. The onset is usually barely noticeable but those who do take note of the creeping euphoria immediately notice a positive change in behavior. Users feel as light as a cloud while radiating with an innate sense of happiness.
It is best to prepare some snacks ahead before the heavy hitting high begins at least. After all, the stimulation extends from the mind and to the stomach so users will most likely feel hungry. Without food prepared ahead of time, users may have a hard time getting to the kitchen to ease the munchies.
As time flies, a light but creeping pressure ebbs down from the temples. It comes in waves and soothes the muscles one by one until a heaviness sets in the limbs. Subtle at first, each puff intensifies the full-bodied relaxation until users are anchored to their couches. Some even doze off immediately. For this reason, it is essential that Strawberry Fields is only used at night.
Strawberry Fields smell like freshly picked strawberries. It is pungent with faint berry-like undertones. When crushed or broken apart, it releases a sweet citric fragrance that intensifies once the buds are combusted.
Carrying over to Strawberry Fields’ flavors is its strong fruity overtone. A blend of ripened strawberries and berries, it bursts in the palate with a sweet citrus but leaves an aftertaste of herbs. Lingering on the exhale is the subtle hint of wet soil.
Most likely, users will experience a cottonmouth and red eyes while using Strawberry Fields. This is because marijuana has cannabinoids that interfere with the production of moisture in both the salivary glands and tear ducts. Neither are a cause for concern though as both usually go away with time. Beginners, who experience discomfort from the dry spell, may down a few glasses of water to stay hydrated.
Strawberry Fields can sometimes lead to users ‘greening out,’ a condition characterized by a mild headache and a feeling of anxiousness. At times, it may also be accompanied by temporary dizziness. This is especially true for users smoking the bud outside of their limits. For this reason, marijuana must always be used in moderation.
In high levels, stress can worsen any existing various physical health problems like hypertension, arrhythmia, or fatigue. It can also lead to the early onset of anxiety and other mental health issues like depression. Similarly, it can exacerbate conditions like PTSD.
Thus, it is not surprising for stress relief to be among the major reasons why enthusiasts use marijuana. In fact, a third of American users cite it. To this end, Strawberry Fields works perfectly. It induces a happy high that clears the mind of overwhelming dread while relaxing the body. At the same time, it manages and stabilizes any turbulent emotions so users can cope with mood related disorders.
Meanwhile, the soothing body buzz appeases various kinds of aches and pains beginning from the temples. Fully relaxed, the natural sleep aid eventually drifts users off to sleep without problems.

Because of its excellent Indica-dominant genes, Strawberry Fields is an easy grow. It is naturally short with stalks and branches that are thick enough to withstand various problems like strong gusts of wind or fluctuations in weather. Moreover, it is strong enough to carry the weight of its heavy buds and rarely ever break off.
Though it performs well outdoors, there are still many who prefer cultivating their Strawberry Fields in less volatile environments. Apart from keeping pests away, a controlled environment allows growers to adjust deciding factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity. Soil is a good medium for improving flavor but hydroponic systems produce “cleaner” buds.
Strawberry Fields has an indoor flowering period of 7 to 9 weeks. Once mature, growers can harvest between 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter.
Garden grown Strawberry Fields blooms from the last week of September to the second or third week of October. Once ready for harvest, it yields at least 12 ounces of buds per plant.
