Runtz Strain

Runtz is a rare sativa strain to find, so not much is known to-date about its THC and CBD averages. However, reviewers enjoy its sweet, fruity, candy-like scent and taste as well as its spectrum of color. Runtz derives its name from the candy as it has a colorful appearance as well as a flavor profile that’s sugary-sweet.

While Runtz’s terpene profile gives it a scent that’s been described as sweet like the candy, it also bears hints of tropical citrus and wood. The flavor profile of Runtz doesn’t stray far from its name or scent as it’s also quite sweet and leaves a tropical yet earthen aftertaste. When you lay your eyes on a well-cultivated batch of Runtz buds, you’ll be able to pick out colors beyond green such as various hues of purples and blues, along with orange pistils and shades of greens in between.

Reviewers have reported Runtz’s ability to create a high that’s both euphoric and relaxing, so effects are often felt in both the head and body. Anxiety may recede along with stress, and bodily ailments such as mild aches and pains may find relief with this strain.

Runtz comes from crossing Zkittlez and Gelato. There are a few phenotypes of Runtz out there so it’s possible to find either a sativa-dominant or indica-dominant hybrid strain of Runtz.

A hyped Cookies Family strain, Runtz is a cross of Zkittlez and Gelato that is rare and sought-after. Celebrated for its incredibly fruity profile that smells just like a bag of the sugary candy, the strain has resin-drenched buds that range in color from rich purple to lime green. Runtz is also noted for its creamy smoke that is smooth and welcoming alongside a euphoric and elevating high that lasts for hours.

Banana runts strain

Banana flavoring has never been my favorite — we’ve been over this before: Banana-flavored treats aren’t worth the cellophane they’re wrapped in — but it does have its place in the cannabis world. The overripe-banana flavors in Banana Kush and Strawberry Banana pair exquisitely with the skunky, earthy notes of cannabis, and those strains deliver mellow highs that are perfect for relaxing after work. Unfortunately, it’s hard for Denverites to get past anything more than flirtation with banana-inspired strains, as those two are about the only ones you’ll find in the local dispensary market — but there is a third, albeit scarce, option: Banana OG.

This indica-dominant hybrid is said to have originated with a cross between OG Kush and Banana Kush, but it seems to have taken after one parent much more than the other. Some growers affectionately call it “Nana OG” or simply “Nana,” but that sounds like a geriatric gangster’s nickname and conjures flashbacks of Big Momma’s House (or, even worse, Big Momma’s House 2 and 3). Instead, Banana OG could be a tough guy in Veggie Tales — a character much easier to visualize while baked off your gourd from the strain’s formidable THC content, whose percentage usually ranges in the mid- to high 20s.

Banana OG is an easy choice for anyone who likes banana Runts, taffy and all that other dull, chalky candy crap, but hints of sour acidity, tropical fruit and dry earthiness in the smoke make the banana flavor very palatable. Regular and occasional users alike should enjoy the relaxing, giggly high that allows you at least an hour or two to cook or do something useful before melting your decisiveness and energy.
