Black Tuna is a British Columbian strain created by 5 Star Organic to give patients a potent punch of THC that is ideal for chronic pain relief. This Herijuana and Lamb's Bread cross has gained quite a bit of fame in Canada for both its strong narcotic effect and its whimsical marketing—prepackaged meds were sold in sealed tuna cans. Flowers will be compact, trichome-covered and have a strong smell. Black Tuna doesn’t smell quite like fish, however; the strain’s name comes from the Black Tuna Gang that was famous for smuggling Colombian marijuana into the United States in the 1970s. Given its potency and high THC, this strain may be too much for novice or moderate consumers.
“If you are a weed virgin and someone pulls out a can of Black tuna you have one of two options:
1: Smoke Black Tuna and get so *%^@ high that you most likely vomit.
2: Wait for a weaker strain so you can have a fully appreciable smoking experience.”
“Enjoyed Black Tuna. For me, it was a very nice combination of feeling relaxed yet focused. I was feeling mindful and present through my evening and had an amazing sleep after enjoying some music. Strong product however, felt stoned/very relaxed the following day.”
