The cannabis plant originated from Central Asia millennia ago. For some time now, marijuana has been considered one of the most satisfying strains of cannabis. The effects of the cannabis that we can order today of the internet are much more potent than in the past. It’s not only about the effects. Recently, two widely-known cannabis strains – Zkittlez and Gelato – were hybridized. As a result, we now have access to a new strain of cannabis called Runtz which is made from both indica and Sativa. In a second, you can find out what type of experience the ‘Runtz’ weed strain is more energetic or sedative and what its phenotypes are.

When two worlds collide

Although pot users might be under the impression that the time is moving extremely slowly, the world of cannabis is changing pretty quickly. Zkittlez, which is a 60% indica, with its sweet and fruity aroma, was named the best indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in Michigan in 2015. Gelato, which is a popular strain on the West Coast, is estimated to be 55% indica and 45% Sativa. Okay, so what do you get when you mix tropical fruits and ice cream? The answer is, “Runtz”. This extremely popular cannabis strain combines the best of the two worlds.

The popularity of this strain is attributed to the sweet smell and excellent flavor when smoked along with its vibrant, colorful buds. Sometimes, Runtz is a combination of Sativa and indica strains. On other occasions, you might run into phenotypes that are primarily one or the other.

The effects of Runtz

It is hard to tell what effects you will experience when smoking different types of “Runtz” weed since there are many variations available. Still, most customers who have tried Runtz claim that it provides a euphoric high, that stimulates the mind and is excellent for creativity, and after some time relaxation washes over the entire body, and being overly active becomes impossible. It is impossible to predict the intensity of a given strain, but Runtz strains range from 19% to 29%. Don’t let the sweet aroma and the fruity flavor fool you! If you happen to find a strain that is on the higher end of the spectrum, you might be launched into Outer Space even if you are a frequent user of cannabis. That’s why it might be a better idea to start slowly. A mix of indica and sativa, the Runtz strain can be used for many purposes, including:

  • alleviating anxiety
  • stress relief
  • improving the mood
  • pain relief

Initially, after a few hits of the drug, you might feel energetic. However, it’s far safer to stay inside your home for activities and start with low doses for beginners. After feeling energetic for some time, you will feel intensely relaxed in your muscles and it will be much more difficult to move than when you were feeling energized. It is advised not to use all of your energy to keep items cold in the fridge before you leave. You may face a dilemma later if you have difficulties falling asleep at night or sleep too deeply. If you are unable to sleep, smoking some of this strain could help provide relief after several hours. Resting uninterrupted while sleeping is a well-deserved reward for the end of the day.

The phenotypes of the Runtz strain

There are several different phenotypes of Runts, all with similar effects, although some small differences do exist. Below you will find descriptions of White and Pink Runtz.

Negative effects

The potential adverse effects of Runtz are typical for weed, which means that if you are an experienced smoker, you won’t be surprised. Your mouth will become dry, and the same will happen to your eyes. The strain Runtz can have up to 29% THC. If you are unlucky, the high might be too intense. It won’t be in any way dangerous for your health, but it is difficult not to feel a tiny bit of paranoia and anxiety while floating in outer space. If you would like to avoid such intense experiences, take it slowly.

If you plan on using cannabis as a last resort to treat health problems, be sure and ask your doctor. There are hundreds of different compounds in weed, so if you already take medications for your medical conditions, the two substances could combine and cause a severe reaction. The internet may be an excellent resource for some information, but if you are seeking medical advice it is best to contact a medical expert directly.


Runtz is easy to grow both indoors and outdoors, even for people without experience. For an outdoor plant, you can expect to get 600g per plant. Indoors, the yield is closer to 450g per plant. The flowering time of the Runtz strain is between 8 and 9 weeks. If you decide to grow Runtz, remember that an aroma of fruits and candy can make you incredibly high. If you don’t know how potent the weed is, it’s better to take baby steps, or baby hits, unless you want to feel the full power of THC.
