Odor and Flavors
A striking odor hits the senses as soon as the bag is opened, but it is not at all unpleasant. Neither is it fishy as its name would suggest. A blend of crushed pepper and dried chilies at the forefront pack a hot and spicy punch to the palate.
Hints of skunk and citrus can be found at its base. It translates rather harshly as the smoke turns acrid that briefly triggers some mild coughing. However, the savory flavors lingering in the mouth is garnished with earthly addicting notes.
Amongst the sea of potent hybrids, Black Tuna is quite the catch. Its flawless split between Sativa and Indica effects offer a profound full-sensory experience. During the onset, a bracing high clears the head of its mental cobwebs.
It fully refreshes users as its ushers in a renewed sense of motivation. The persistent effects liberate the mind of negativity with an unparalleled optimism. At the right dose, it will sprinkle bright ideas in the creative juice it squeezes out. Flushed out of stress, the enriched mood along with the mental clarity heightens focus.
Gradually, its famous creeping physical buzz begins. It introduces itself as a light pressure in the temples that slowly ebbs down, coursing through the muscles. Not a limb is left unturned as it soothes the body in waves until, eventually, users feel like floating on cloud nine.
It settles into a lazy kind of contentment if the dosage is kept minimal, but a notch higher and the eyes will droop until it becomes almost impossible to fight off sleep.
Black Tuna may be too intense for those with low tolerance to THC especially when used in high doses. Overconsumption of the strain, for example, can trigger uncomfortable effects such as an anxiety or a subtle feeling of paranoia. And, though the strain aims to clarify the mind, sensations and perceptions are muddled up once the effects become overwhelming. There is also the unavoidable but typical cottonmouth and dry eyes. As such, it is best to start slow and steady with this one. Beginners, on the other hand, may want to find a smaller fish to fry.
Medical Use and Benefits
Medical patients craving for a taste of relief will find that Black Tuna’s full-bodied effects hit all the right spots. Its uplifting onset makes for a natural mood enhancer that wipes out stress which can develop into worse conditions when left compounding into chronic levels.
Speaking of such, tensions are reduced and replaced with a long-lasting euphoria that eminently calms a mind weighed down by anxiety, depression, and mild PTSD. This slight nudge is enough to shift one’s train of thought to a positive direction.
Its impressive potency adds efficacy to its own analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which help relieve symptoms of chronic pain as well as reduce swelling in some red areas. As soon as the high hits, it numbs the limbs and soothes debilitating aches like arthritis, muscle spasms, and cramps. Not one to slouch in its delivery, Black Tuna relaxes in a way that makes the bone melt into a gooey goodness.
Growing White Widow
Black Tuna is robust enough to thrive either indoors or outdoors. It is also unfussy and rarely suffers from nutrient burn as it tends to eat heavily. For this reason, growers may opt to include nitrogen in its diet during the vegetative phase. Meanwhile, increasing phosphorous and potassium provisions during the flowering period will maximize its yields as well as encourage quality bud growth.
Like other strains, it loves staying dry and snuggling under the warm sunshine or growing lights if it is in a controlled environment. It will need trimming as its compact structure sometimes harbors moisture that attract both mold and mildew.
Indoors, it takes about 8 to 9 weeks of flowering before it produces an average of 350 grams of sticky buds per square meter. Grown outdoors, it yields 200 grams of buds per plant from the last week of September to early October.
