Runtz is a very well liked 50/50 hybrid strain that has a reputation for its potency and candy like flavours. It’s the perfect combination of parent strains Zkittlez and Gelato, both reputable strains known for their sweet and fruity flavours. The strain has been increasing in popularity and has already won several cannabis contests due to its high THC content, delicious flavour, and desirable effects.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
Runtz is named after the popular fruit-shaped “Runts” candy. The strain is similarly sweet and fruity with sugary overtones and an earthy, citrusy aftertaste. The aroma is also popular for its sweet notes accompanied by a recognizable earthy, skunky cannabis scent. The buds are round, and slightly fluffy and leafy. The colouring is a beautiful dark green with hints of orange and white trichomes.
Effects and Medical Uses
Runtz was popularized in the LA and Colorado medical cannabis communities for its calming, relaxing and sleepy effects. It has both a great head high and body high. When first smoked, users will enjoy a euphoric, uplifting mind high. This euphoria is followed by an all-over calmness until an enjoyable full body relaxation sets in. Those with insomnia, anxiety, high levels of stress or chronic pain will enjoy the effects of Runtz.
