About Runtz Strain:
In its genetics, the runtz is 50-50 Indica and Sativa hybrid strain. It is a cross between Zkittlez and Gelato and was created by the Runtz crew. It is a relatively new variety of cannabis, as it was developed at the beginning of 2017. This Los Angeles-born hybrid was challenging to locate outside Southern California until 2020. Ray Bama and his partner Nick recognized that the new strain’s appearance, aroma, and flavor would make it stand out from the competition. The two instantly settled on the well-known Nestle fruit-shaped candy from the 1980s when thinking of a name for the new strain. They wanted to play off the strain’s distinctive fruity aroma, large buds, and Zkittlez parentage.
Like many other hybrids, the lineage of this plant can vary from plant to plant as each grower has a slightly different way of growing and processing their plants. However, one thing that does not differ from plant to plant is the THC content between 24% and 26%. The strain is relatively easy to grow and is a good choice for both beginner and experienced growers. This strain can be grown indoors or outdoors and typically flower in 9-10 weeks.
The strain has a complex flavor profile dominated by sweet and fruity notes. This strain can also have hints of diesel and skunk when grown and appropriately cured. It has an overly sour flavor that almost tastes tropical and is balanced with an intensely sweet scent. It’s also tangy and tingling just like the candy that bears its name. It leans more toward a pineapple and tilts beyond the citrus of an orange. Runtz‘s flavor profile is completed with additional sweet and fruity notes, giving it a taste that most strains can only aspire to provide. Some describe the aroma as syrupy berry cream with plenty of gassy notes.
You feel the taste even after you exhale the smoke. The flavors linger on your tongue afterward, though you can’t place what it tastes like. When smoked in joints, its flavor combines with tobacco to make a decadent smoky treat.
