Strain Spotlight insights on Pink Tuna
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 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. Pink Tuna is known for lulling you into a heavy couch-lock. This effect quickly turns sedative, leaving you dozing off and on in a state of pure happiness. 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. Pink Tuna buds have a sweet and sour fruity diesel flavor with a heavy pungent aroma to match. Expect notes of pungent skunk, fuel, and a delicate sweetness intermixed when burning. This bud has compact grape-shaped minty green nugs with an abundance of trichomes.
Although Pink Tuna is not known for its large yield, what does come off these thinner stalks will be rich with potency and flavor. That being said, if this strain makes it to your grow, upgrade your carbon filters because this bud is stinky!
