Tuna Kush, also known as "Tuna OG", is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain that is said to be a phenotype of the classic Hindu Kush. Even with its beautifully relaxing indica high, Tuna Kush's stench can be overpowering. Tuna Kush has a super pungent smell that's actually incredibly fishy, almost like rotting tuna! This smell doesn't transfer over very well to flavor – it has a sour skunky taste that's incredibly pungent with a kushy fish flavor that can leave you gagging. If you can get passed this funky stank, you'll be met with one of the richest indica highs you can experience. The high has a heady onset of euphoria and a touch of energy that lifts your mood and leaves your mind wandering through dreamy introspection. This thoughtful and peaceful state will become slightly stoney in concurrence with a warming body high that washes over you from top to bottom. These two effects blend together harmoniously, leaving you slightly couch-locked and very sleepy. In combination with its high 16-18% average THC level, you can count on Tuna Kush to ease the symptoms of chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety or stress. Tuna Kush buds have long minty green pepper-shaped nugs with long thin amber hairs and tiny white frosty crystal trichomes.
Platinum OG is a super-potent descendant of OG Kush, Master Kush, and an unknown parent. THC levels easily top 20% and have reportedly reached 24% in some tests. This indica-dominant hybrid has a sativa/indica ratio of 25/75, and that is reflected in the mostly physical high. The powerful effects include a calming body buzz with couch-lock, euphoria, happiness, and intense sleepiness. This makes Platinum OG a good medication for insomnia, as well as anxiety, low mood, ADHD, inflammation, migraine headaches, mood swings, and muscle spasms. CBD levels are very low, less than 1%, which isn't surprising, considering the high THC content. In other words, this strain shouldn't be used as sole treatment for seizures or other disorders that require CBD. Platinum OG produces a smell of diesel, spice, and coffee; the flavor is similar, with additional hints of herb. The bud is lime green and covered in fuzzy trichome hairs. Dry mouth is by far the most commonly cited side effect with this strain, though dry eyes, dizziness, and paranoia are also reported. It sells best on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Arizona.
