Black Tuna

The Black Tuna strain is a potent hybrid of Herijuana and Lamb’s Bread with British Columbian roots bred by 5 Star Organics. The strain’s name derives from the infamous Black Tuna Gang that smuggled Colombian marijuana into the United States in the 1970s. It’s comprised of an even split of 50% indica and 50% sativa genetics.

Known for its strong smell and narcotic effects, Black Tuna packs a potent punch with its high levels of THC (22-28%) and may help relieve depression, chronic pain, and stress. But Black Tuna may be too much for some beginners, and this high-THC strain is recommended for experienced marijuana users.
