Black Tuna Strain — Make It Your White Whale

Truly a rare strain in most of the US, Black Tuna is a strangely named strain that offers an intense experience. Many people choose it first because of whimsical packaging because it’s commonly sold sealed into the same cans used for tuna. If you find its unique taste a little off-putting, you may want to try a sweeter strain like Melonade.

      Relaxing and mood-boosting, Black Tuna is a hybrid strain worth enjoying when stress leaves you feeling less than your best. It also has a THC content that is, on average, around 19%. This isn’t too high for new users, but it’s strong enough for reliable pain relief and other effects.
