Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
THC: 19% – 29%
Runtz is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through a delicious cross of the infamous Zkittlez X Gelato strains. Named for the iconic candy, Runtz brings on a super delicious fruity flavor with tropical citrus and sour berries galore. The aroma is very similar, although with a sharp spicy pineapple effect that turns slightly pungent as the sticky little nugs are broken apart and burned. The Runtz high comes roaring in a few minutes after your final toke, first hitting your head with a calming lift before spreading its tingly tendrils throughout the rest of your body. As the Runtz high expands, you’ll begin to feel a deeply calming effect spread through your limbs, leaving you totally sedated and couch-locked, immovable for hours and hours on end before you finally fall into a deep and peaceful sleep. Thanks to these effects and its super high 19-29% average THC level, Runtz is often said to be perfect for treating conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, appetite loss or nausea and chronic stress or anxiety. This bud has dense grape-shaped olive green nugs with thin orange hairs, dark purple undertones and a coating of frosty tiny white purple-tinted crystal trichomes.
Runtz is a strain of cannabis fresh out of LA, with a terpene profile most would describe as candy. However, Runtz as a strain has an incredibly diverse number of phenotypes, which can drastically effect its data. As such, it is almost impossible to say whether Runtz is a Sativa or Indica leaning hybrid, as different phenotypes end up leaning different ways. This also stands true for the THC and CBD levels, which are tested on a per-grow basis, and not available on the internet at the moment.
Runtz is a popular strain amongst cannabis smokers big into the culture and the advertising behind the packaging of cannabis products. You might have put it together already, but the growers named the strain Runtz based on its sugary-sweet aromatic and flavor profile, in addition to the way the bud looks. If dried and cured correctly, users will be able to spot colors beyond green in the bud. A vibrant array of colors from blues and purples to dark greens and bright oranges are often found in the tight, dense buds of Runtz. It is an incredibly hard strain to find, almost exclusively sold out of Los Angeles. Little to no information is available on Runtz on the internet.
Most of the reviews that are available on Runtz describe the high as both euphoric and relaxing, which is typical of most hybrids, no matter if they’re Indica or Sativa dominant. Many note that this strain is good for relieving stress, anxiety, and chronic pain. Upon sparking up and taking that first hit, expect your worries and woes to melt away under the overwhelming blanket of positivity that is Runtz. Not only will you be feeling great, but you’ll also have the sweet aftertaste of candy in your mouth from the smoke. You’ll likely feel euphoric and happy, but not enough to leave the house. After a sesh of Runtz, you’re going to want to find a sofa or bed to stretch out and relax on, as your physical pains melt away and your mind expands. For some this means focusing on the television and watching a movie, for others this means blasting Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and getting really introspective.
