The smell is definitely a skunky funk with some earthy undertones. Nugs are fluffy and medium sized, with darkly shaded colas that feature a good amount of purple calyxes.
THC levels tend to turn up around 20%, but the rich terpene profile that comes with this strain confers its heavy painkilling effects. The high that accompanies a sharp toke of these buds sets on within moments. Its heady effects are borderline narcotic, making this strain a favorite for reducing pain and inflammation. Muscle spasms, headaches, and cramps may also be relieved.
The couch-lock is strong with this one, so it’s best for a session immediately after work or before hitting the sack. Other side effects from Black Tuna include cottonmouth, irritated eyes, and slight paranoia at higher doses.
