You could split the modern cannabis world into two sections, before the Runtz strain and after the Runtz strain – it really is that important. Runtz, like one of its parents, Zkittlez, kickstarted most of the trends that have taken over the cannabis world. With the latter, it’s largely as a parent but Runtz has spawned a whole generation of strains bearing its name with no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Runtz is a cross between Zkittlez and Gelato. As mentioned previously, Zkittlez can be seen as the godfather of modern cannabis and Gelato, well Gelato is just fire and crosses well with other strains. The Runtz strain has a tangy, pepperiness due to high levels of the terpene caryophyllene and a sticky sweetness because there’s a fair amount of limonene and myrcene here too.
