The indica dominant hybrid known as Runtz (70/30) is one of cannabis’ most famous monarchs. Its phenotypes are numerous and its flavours are practically synonymous with Los Angeles. It comes from a handsome lineage that includes Zkittlez and Gelato strains and is currently taking the Colorado bud market by storm. Dispensaries across the state are getting in on the Runtz game, encouraging people to finally see what all the “buzz” is about.
Aroma and Flavour
On the flavour front, Runtz is a California (now Colorado) mainstay for a reason. The strain is packed with three dominant terpenes – Beta-Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Limonene – that give it its distinct flavour. It includes both the sweet-sugar excitement of candy and layered tones of woody and tropical citrus. The fruitiness is delicious and the earthiness leaves just enough depth to satisfy users who have a more complex palette.
The Runtz effects range from calming to tingly-sleepy, the kind of feeling you get when you feel justified doing absolutely nothing at all. We recommend Runtz as a perfect companion for a spa day, a long nap, a do-nothing lazy Saturday, or a movie marathon (provided you don’t mind missing the ending!).
The combination of euphoria and relaxation makes the strain great for low-level body pains and achiness, especially when it’s work-related. It can be a great companion for stressed or high-anxiety individuals who crave a little calm. It makes you hungry too so appetite-suppressed users will love getting their cravings kickstarted by the flavours of citrus and pine.
You may already know Runtz’s reputation from the rounds it’s made in the LA cannabis publications and contests. If you’ve got daily pain or habitual trouble with getting to sleep, now’s the perfect time to see what the fuss with Runtz is all about.
