The Black Tuna Gang became famous in the 70s as a marijuana smuggling ring that successfully imported over 500 tons of cannabis to the US. They were known by their solid gold medallions and the codeword “Black Tuna.” The strain that refers to their call sign can be just as brutal, with a THC level of up to the low 30s. If you want to be pounded into a couch-locked state and find yourself lost in the tingly allure of a powerhouse Indica (70/30), Pink Tuna may be your new callsign.
Pink Tuna is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain (70% indica/30% sativa) created through crossing the classic Pink Kush X Tuna Kush strains. This bud steals its name from the infamous Black Tuna Gang who made their name smuggling marijuana from Colombia in the 70’s.
Pink Tuna Appearance & Taste
The strain comes from a combination of Tuna Kush and classic Pink Kush, which is probably why it has its unique cocktail of fruit and fuel flavors and undersized buds. You’ll feel drowsy, happy, relaxed, and euphoric on Pink Tuna, but make sure to try it in lower doses if you consider yourself a novice. Due to its potent THC content, beginners may find themselves knocked flat by the Pink Tuna gang (on the other hand, that may be what you’re looking for!).
Pink Tuna buds have a sweet and sour fruity diesel flavor with a heavy pungent aroma to match. This bud has compact grape-shaped minty green nugs with thin orange hairs and a coating of frosty white crystal trichomes.
Pink Tuna Effects
If you suffer from insomnia and the feelings of fatigue and even depression that can result from prolonged sleeplessness, Pink Tuna can return your energy to normal. Muscle spasms, cramps, and pain conditions can be treated with this strain’s sweet taste and powerhouse THC levels. While crashing into your couch, you’ll taste a sour diesel flavor, full of intense fruit aromas. The pungent, heavy smell will definitely let the world know you’re smoking Pink Tuna – it’ll linger in your living room for hours. The buds are shaped like minty grapes and coated in white trichomes, like a thin layer of frost.
Before you fall asleep, you’ll feel the high creep slowly along your whole body, convincing you to fall asleep and relax. If you suffer from cramps, pain, and stress, Pink Tuna may be overkill for novices and a godsend for experienced users. If you want Miami in your mouth, this is the one.
This bud lives up to the name, with classic indica effects that hit hard and fast, slamming into you with a hefty potency and a super high 25-31% average THC level. The high starts with cerebral effects that suddenly crash through your mind, leaving you utterly euphoric and pretty unfocused at times with a tendency to drift away into space. As your mind settles, your body will start to drop off into a deeply relaxing tingly state, which lulls you into a heavy couch-lock. This effect quickly turns sedative, leaving you dozing off and on in a state of pure happiness and peace. Thanks to these effects and its high THC level, Pink Tuna is often chosen to treat conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, depression, chronic stress, and muscle spasms or cramps.
Final Thoughts on Pink Tuna
The high begins as a strong cerebral punch, full of euphoria and devoid of focus. Pink Tuna will not be your new work companion. It’ll be your body buzz, promoting relaxing tingles and a sense of “drift” as your mind flies away. If you want to turn your head into a loose balloon as your body sinks into cushions, consider this sedating strain as your new happy drug.
