Black Tuna is a hybrid strain that came from 5 Star Organic's breeders. It is a British-Columbian weed that took its genetics from Lamb's Bread and Herojuana. Due to the relatively high THC level, which reaches up to 23% with a negligible CBD ratio that is less than 1%, this weed is not recommended for newcomers. It is said that the weed was sold in tuna cans to mimic its name. It is also worth knowing that it was named after Black Tuna Gang that was smuggling cannabis from Columbia to the US in the seventies.

Honestly, bought an oz and didn't know what i was getting myself into. Vaped it and it tasted like nachos from the movies with a side order of jalapeños. Buzz settles behind you eyes mainly and you will have a hard time remembering things. Tried to describe a show I used to watch on discovery and couldn't for the life of me remember it. (It was myth busters....). It's potent. I was still high when I woke up the next day. I wouldn't say I loved it but it does get you stoned.

Black Tuna is one of the best strains I've ever had the pleasure to experience!!! 50-50 hybrid which is just about perfect! You feel the strong indica side but you are still focused, for a while that is...

Farrrrkkkk! This dope is the dopiest I ever tried. As I write this I am high as fuck! This is definitely a strain to try if it is your first time but if you are an advanced smoker than me, then you are going to love this one. It has much psychedelic effects on me.

Damn good! A great herbal and spicy flavor and quite relaxing. You will want to sit on a comfy seat when smoking this as it will hit you very hard and leave you sedated for hours. This is a must try for advanced smokers, if you are a virgin you will want to wait for something lighter.
