Runtz Strain History

The very first Runtz-branded strain rocked the weed world, no other way to put it.

Emerging from the hotbed that is the California cannabis breeding sphere in 2018, the strain had a couple of standout characteristics that really did change how many Cannasseur thought about new-school weed.

Birthed from two big names - Zkittlez and Gelato - the combination of perfectly balanced effects, amazing flavour profile, and heavy-hitting but easy-to-grow characteristics made Runtz an instant classic.

So, it was no surprise that Leafly named Runtz 'Strain of the Year' in 2020. One of the most prestigious awards in the cannabis industry, this recognition solidified Runtz's place as a must-have strain in grow rooms and outdoor gardens worldwide.

Are Runtz seeds easy to grow?

Yes, Runtz seeds make growing weed as relaxing as smoking the stuff.

A great choice for beginners and old hats alike, Runtz thrives in conditions that would kill off less resilient strains, like high humidity and extreme temperature fluctuations.

But it's not just about how sturdy Runtz plants are, the strain is also highly resistant to common pests and diseases. This means less time worrying about your plants and more chance at getting to the end of your crop run with all buds intact and ready to be cured.

Reaching a manageable height of 120 cm -180 cm without needing heavy nutrients, she takes well to all forms of plant training and is an excellent choice for growers looking to up-skill. Runtz is quick, too - with a flowering time of just 8-10 weeks, growers can potentially get more than one harvest per season, increasing yields and overall value for money.

The yield is impressive, offering 400-500gr/m² of dense, tightly packed buds. Not only are these buds a delight to grow, harvest, trim, then break up and grind, but they also live up to the strain's namesake, with purples and reds often coming to the fore.

Preferred climate:

Runtz thrives in a warm climate but will do very well in colder-than-ideal temperatures.

How strong is Runtz?

Runtz is a pretty potent strain with a THC content ranging from 20-24% (sometimes higher hen grown in a hydro set-up), but good weed is more than just THC potency - with Runtz being a perfect example of that.

How much can Runtz yield?

Runtz can reliably yield 400-500gr/m² indoors, time after time. Experienced growers with training techniques in their bag of tricks will be able to push that number even higher.

Outdoors, that really depends on the climate, how long the crop stays in vegetative growth, and how well the plants are trained. The best outcome from an outdoor Runtz grow would be roughly 600 gr/plant.

Runtz flowering time:

Runtz has a flowering time of 8-10 weeks, quick enough for multiple outdoor harvests in a single season, and easy to set up an indoor perpetual harvest routine.

What are the effects of Runtz weed?

Thanks to the almost perfect split of Sativa and Indica genetics, Runtz is a true 'every man' smoke.

Runtz weed is lauded for its versatile range of effects that start out with a cerebral buzz, slowly slipping into a full-body relaxation that will leave you in the perfect state to chill out and take it easy.

Both recreational cannaheads and medicinal patients love Runtz, for a few obvious reasons.

For recreational users, Runtz induces a euphoric high that lifts the mood, sparks creativity, and can lead to hours-long bouts of unstoppable giggles, almost like that first time you got high. Want to go out? Smoke some Runtz and everything is instantly more fun! Want to stay home and chill? Well, Runtz has your back once again.

Medicinally, Runtz has been reported to offer significant symptom relief for a huge range of conditions, including pain, inflammation, anxiety, and insomnia. Thanks to its balanced genetics, Runtz is a safe bet for most.

Its analgesic properties can help alleviate pain, making it suitable for those dealing with conditions like arthritis, MS, or any number of injuries and conditions that cause chronic pain.  The strain's anti-inflammatory effects further support pain relief.

For those dealing with anxiety disorders, Runtz comes to the fore once more. The instant life in mood can be a real game changer, but keep in mind that potent THC strains can trigger anxiety in some patients, so start low and go slow.

What does Runtz taste and smell like?

The Gelato side of Runtz heritage adds more flavor and fragrance than Zkittlez, but you still get a beautiful blend of both. Sweet and fruity on the inhale with some spiciness that gives way to a extra creamy finish. Although this is more common in new school strains nowadays, in 2018, when Runtz first hit the scene, its taste and smell were revolutionary.

Since then, many cultivars have tried (and mostly failed) to imitate this ridiculous sensory profile, but the thing that truly puts Runtz at the tippy top of the state pack is the almost everlasting creaminess. Added to the sugary candy undertones, you’re left with a smoke that tastes like you're getting baked by Willy Wonka himself.

If you have a sweet tooth, then this is the strain for you, but watch out - the munchies kick in fast and hard, so maybe hide the snacks before you smoke.
