A true legend, Tuna Kush is a highly potent, indica dominant hybrid which was bred and first introduced in Canada. Though it’s true genetics and parentage are unknown, evidence seems to suggest that the strain might have descended from Hindu Kush, since it has a similar taste and aroma.
Nonetheless, Tuna Kush is a potent, high THC strain which is best known for its pungent aroma and quick, relaxing effects. Commonly used for recreational purposes, Tuna Kush is also used to treat a range of medicinal conditions as well, including depression, anxiety, nausea, insomnia and even chronic or sporadic pain.
Tuna Kush Effects
While Tuna Kush’s actual genetics and parentage are unknown, the strain is still extremely powerful, and according to experts, at least 70% indica.
As a result, the strain contains moderate to high THC concentration levels and delivers a truly exquisite high, which is both mentally and physically relaxing and stimulating.
The high sets in rather quickly, and has a heavy onset of euphoria and energy, which lifts the mood and leaves the user in a state of dreamy introspection. This state of bliss is further reinforced by a body wide warming buzz, which leaves the user relaxed and couchlocked.
Tuna Kush THC Content
As an indica dominant strain, Tuna Kush has been known to contain upto 70% indica content. Thus, tuna Kush contains a higher THC concentration than normal strains, between 16% and 20%.
Primarily because of this, Tuna Kush is a powerful and potent strain, which is well suited for both recreational and medicinal purposes. The strain has been effectively used against a number of conditions, including depression, anxiety, nausea, chronic pain and even insomnia.
Tuna Kush Appearance
While the Tuna Kush is most famous for its potency and aroma, the strain also has a rather unique and appealing appearance. It has pretty, large sized buds which are primarily of a soft, mint green color. The buds are long, and pepper shaped, and have a large number of orange and amber colored hairs poking out of the green as well.
But the most important feature of Tuna Kush’s appearance is the layer of frosty white trichome crystals which make the strain so potent.
