Buy Tuna Kush Strain

Tuna Kush (a.k.a. Tuna OG) belongs to the pure or hybrid group of the Kush strain, which includes the Hindu Kush, Afghan Kush, Purple Kush and Green Kush. Although its origin is unknown, it is possibly an Indica-dominant phenotype of the Hindu Kush, which may be the parent bud for most Indica strains. Much like its alleged ancestor, Tuna Kush is known for its potency and super pungent smell.

In fact, the strain got its name from its incredibly fishy scent that may be similar to that of rotting tuna (it’s not that bad, seriously). Plus, rumour has it that the buds were once smuggled in tuna cans, which could be another reason for its name. Regardless, if you wish to use Tuna Kush for its medicinal benefits or just relax for the fun of it, the funky smell is something that you might need to get used to.

THC Content In Tuna Kush

The THC levels in Tuna Kush may vary from 16-21%, depending on the quality you choose. As such, it is an incredibly potent type of hemp, and beginners should start with smaller doses to avoid adverse effects. 

Moreover, Tuna Kush consists of 70% Indica and 30% Sativa, both of which bring about the soothing effects of THC. So, despite the euphoric feeling, you’ll notice that the effects are not too strong or violent. As such, you may enter a stage of dreamy introspection, and that is what makes regular users put up with the distinct smell.


Tuna Kush does not produce a high yield and is characterized by its small, densely packed buds. Although the leaves are originally dark green, they may appear lighter or minty due to the crystal-like coating. The pepper-shaped nuggets are further covered with amber-orange hairs and frosty trichomes.

Aroma And Flavour

While the unassuming look of the strain may invite you to take a bite, the fishy stench is something you cannot miss. As soon as you light up a few strains, the air will be filled with a strong, pungent smell mixed with earthy and flowery notes.

Although the smell is not a favourite among smokers, the smooth and nice taste makes up for it. It boasts of an intense flavour that may leave you craving for more. Some of the common flavours experienced by regular users are spicy, earthy, and dank.

Positive Effects Of Taking Tuna Kush

As mentioned earlier, Tuna Kush is a potent indica-dominant hybrid strain, which explains the euphoric high it causes.

Thanks to the sativa content in it, smoking Tuna Kush is known to cause relief and happiness. As such, you may notice your mood getting better and feeling much more relaxed and stress-free. Consequently, Tuna Kush is one of the best strains to tackle insomnia and other ailments like chronic stress, nausea, depression, and fatigue.

Moreover, the extreme physical high caused by consuming Tuna Kush may help relieve chronic pain. But keep in mind that there are no concrete studies available yet to prove it.

Possible Side Effects

Some common side effects of taking Tuna Kush include dry mouth and eyes, and paranoia in the worst-case scenario. To avoid the former, try keeping yourself hydrated right after smoking the strain and keep some snacks handy. We also recommend plugging your nose if the stench becomes too strong to handle.

Since it is often smoked to enjoy a relaxing sleep, this indica-dominant hybrid strain should be avoided during the day – unless you plan to sleep in all day!

    Med-small buds but a strong tuna Smell and flavour with a solid if not the strongest indica high make this an all around solid bud and AAA+ feels like a bang on rating. Really enjoyed this one but I’m a sucker for good Tunas.

  13. karlb.

    Same as last review, we got the dry batch. Weed is potent, taste is very smooth but you can tell it’s high in THC after smoking a joint. Just which we received a less dry and less fluffy batch. Good weed anyway, don’t regret getting it.

    5 stars on appearance
    1 star for the buzz
    It looks like it’s going to be gas but then you’re let down there’s no strong smell and it doesn’t really get you high I’d Def grade this AA. It tastes okay but it kind if makes me feel nauseous. First time ordering here probably my last.
