About Black Runtz
Genetics & History
Black Runtz is a variation on the classic Runtz strain, a California mainstay, pretty much cannabis royalty at this point. This hybrid is a combination of Zkittlez and Gelato strains so you can imagine that it brings fruit and sour berry flavors to the table every time. This strain is only for those that want to slow down and stop, slump over for a few hours, and then fall completely asleep.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The strain’s buds grow dark and green, with sugared, crystal-cloaked leaves tinted pink. Blues and purples shine through as well. The buds are dense and grow in pleasing yields, up to 500g per plant when grown inside.
The flavor is surprisingly tropical, yielding citrus and sweet n’ sour berry flavors on the onset; on the exhale, you’ll taste a spicy, peppery pineapple flavor on the front of your palette. It may be the last thing you remember before Black Runtz puts you to sleep.
As you spark Black Runtz, it will make you feel calm, tingly, and warm. It will stretch its long fingers through your arms and legs, relaxing you as it goes. You’ll feel heavily sedated, couchlocked, and ready to board a train to sleepytime junction. It’s no wonder too – Black Runtz has wildly variable lab results but some tests report nearly 30% THC levels.
The strain’s ability to be uplifting and relaxing at the same time makes it a great companion for people with depression and anxiety. This strain is a literal knock-out, so you won’t be able to overthink your way out of feeling happy this time. Type A busybodies who can’t stop worrying probably know what that’s about – Black Runtz is what you’re looking for.
It has other uses too. Its ability to make you hungry and relaxed definitely helps people with eating disorders, chronic nausea, and general unsettled-ness. Chronic pain conditions can have their edges sanded off with the taste of the tropics. You’ll feel calm and peaceful hanging out with Black Runtz, preferably in the evening. Remember – especially for novice users – that Black Runtz will knock you out.
If you're just getting into growing cannabis, Black Runtz could be a great strain to start with. Seeds might be hard to find as they are still highly sought out by professional growers. The plants grow tall and fast, so pruning and topping are key strategies to roll out with this one. Black Runtz is known to yeild 17-23 ounces per plant. The flowering time is 8-9 weeks and you'll be at an early to mid-October harvest when growing outdoors.
To sum it up, this strain is delicious. People describe the pink leaves as shimmery and candy-like – they match the flavor of the strain, which has the same crispy sweet edge of your favorite candy, partly due to its abundant ultra-sugary resin. The body high (and you’ll feel it all over) is warm and uplifting on this one. Go to Black Runtz if you think a pineapple can knock out your stress this week. It’s like inhaling a hug.
Definitely some fire, very smooth smoke also flavorful with a relaxing high after a long day. Beware of the extreme cotton mouth but still worth it.
Decent high that does make you euphoric at first but then about an hour in the munchies and couchlock started to set in 😆. That's how I was affected anyway
