Tuna Kush is a BC legend that is now surfacing in North American medical cannabis markets. This strain has been deemed one of the most potent available, producing small, dense nuggets that are hard-caked with resin.
Apparently, Tuna Kush is a bit of a legend in Canada and the United States is just now getting its hands on this super stinky bud. Breeders are unknown, genetics are unknown, and it’s surprising that the world even has as much info about this strain as they already do. Before we go any further, keep in mind that this bud is quite unusual and might make you rethink cannabis as you know it.
Sitting at an average potency level of 17% THC, Tuna Kush seems like a normal strain at first. Her buds are pretty enough with a mint green coloration that’s accented by amber hairs and clear crystals, but just wait until you get closer. A stench of rotting tuna will fill the air instantly upon burning, and this scent carries over into her flavor along with notes of sour skunk. Truly, we wonder why anyone would put themselves through this torture, but who are we to judge?
Once you’ve experienced Tuna Kush’s effects, you’ll see why people put up with her. Described as one of the best indica highs around, this bud washes over users with dreamy introspection that’s euphoric and relaxing. Soon after you feel your mind melt away, your body will follow suit with a warming sensation that travels from head to toe. No matter how tough you think you are, you’ll become fully couch locked with a grin on your face and just enough energy to chat with the friend next to you.
Tuna Kush may not be the first strain that comes to mind when dealing with medical concerns, but despite her fragrance, she brings a fair amount of relief to a range of issues. Mental disorders including depression and anxiety vanish with her euphoric presence and although her scent might make you want to gag, soon after you’ll notice that nausea vanishes. A bit before bedtime can help to tame insomnia and instances of chronic or sporadic pain also go by the wayside pretty quickly.
Given that Tuna Kush comes from unknown breeders, it’s not surprising that finding seeds is difficult. Perhaps that’s on purpose though, because even growing this strain emits such a strong odor that many people aren’t even up for the challenge. Others report that yields tend to be rather small as well, so ultimately this bud might be more trouble than she’s worth, at least on the cultivation side of things.
