Appearance, Aroma, and Taste
Unlike its potency and flavour, Tuna Kush is not known for its high yield. The buds of are often small but dense and are extremely caked with trichomes. The leaves are dark green but appear brighter due to the frost-like coating. The aroma is quite unique with a blend of pungent, gas, and a bit of sugar all mixed in together. There are also hints of earthiness and wood. The smell is unique but definitely not a favourite among smokers. To make up for that, the smoke is very smooth, tasteful and burns white.
