Called Colorado Cough outside of the state, this clone-only masterpiece was a regular (and welcome) export from Fort Collins in the pre-dispensary days and has since grown into a dispensary staple. The Northern Lights #5 x Haze #17 cross has an amazingly pungent, almost rotten smell when broken up, like decomposing fall leaves mixed with a peppery spice. Unlike other hazes that can be spindly and wiry, the Cough usually flowers into large, plump, dark-green buds. It produces a heavy, heavy buzz that will put you down on the couch quickly if you aren't careful. In smaller amounts, the buds are good for increasing your appetite without making you jittery -- like a strong, sativa-leaning haze.
