Runtz, also known as “Runtz OG,” is a rare type of hybrid marijuana strain. Runtz is made by Cookies Fam by crossing Zkittlez with Gelato and it is loved for its incredibly fruity flavor profile that smells just like a bag of the sugary candy we all know and love. Because of the rising popularity of this cannabis strain, it’s no surprise Runtz was named Leafly Strain of the Year in 2020. Growers say this strain has resin-drenched buds that range in color from rich purple to lime green. Runtz is celebrated for its creamy smoke that is smooth and welcoming. This strain of weed produces euphoric highs and uplifting effects that are known to be long-lasting. Purple Caper Seeds released the same cross under the name Gelato Zkittlez.
The Runtz effects range from calming to tingly-sleepy, the kind of feeling you get when you feel justified doing absolutely nothing at all. We recommend Runtz as a perfect companion for a spa day, a long nap, a do-nothing lazy Saturday, or a movie marathon (provided you don’t mind missing the ending!).
The combination of euphoria and relaxation makes the strain great for low-level body pains and achiness, especially when it’s work-related. It can be a great companion for stressed or high-anxiety individuals who crave a little calm. It makes you hungry too so appetite-suppressed users will love getting their cravings kickstarted by the flavors of citrus and pine.
You may already know Runtz’s reputation from the rounds it’s made in the LA cannabis publications and contests. If you’ve got daily pain or habitual trouble with getting to sleep. Now’s the perfect time to see what the fuss with Runtz is all about.

I’m a long time pot smoker (30 plus years) so I was surprised at the punch that Runtz packed. I do like Sativa dominated strains for medical reasons – Indica for insomnia or stress. Runtz made me feel happy energized & did I say happy?!

i love this strain, it’s one of my favourites, i have a incredibly high tolerance and this knocks me on my ass i swear i can see into time with this strain like it’s intense
Game changer for PTSD. It’s great to use during the day when I have flashbacks because it’s somewhat uplifting and doesn’t make me exhausted. But it also doesn’t keep me extremely awake at night. I just take some CBD before bed and I’m right to sleep. This strain is amazing for flashbacks, intrusive memories, rumination and paranoia.
This new strain is the shit. This strain has taken us stoners to a new high.
I’m sensitive to most indicas but this is different. The depression is gone and I can still function very well. I think I found my new favorite strain.

Definitely as advertised. I’ve been wondering why I was periodically getting chatty the last couple days and it’s because I’ve been hitting this strain on my pen! I didn’t realize until I came to look up all the strains I bought, but yeah, the description matches the product lol. Runtz is the daddy of my favorite strain of all time Banana Runtz, so I can’t recommend it enough if you’re looking to socialize.
Was at Max anxiety and picked this up and I don’t think I’ll ever go without it again. Absolutely amazing for my chronic pain and my anxiety and bipolar disorder. Checked all my boxes and I smoke a lot so it’s hard for me to feel this good on a bad day. 10/10

-Psychedelic, full spectrum effects. – Would be great candidate for treatment of pain, anxiety, depression, etc. -long lasting effects -Onset within 2-10 min of inhalation or 30-60 min ingestion -Peak between 20 min and 40 min -Tail end of effects can be anywhere from one hour for frequent fliers, all the way to the next morning at brunch for less frequent adventurers. Even for heavy smokers, likely to feel very warm and hazy in the morning. Tastes of tart fruit. Minimal after taste. -Smells extremely loud. If smell did have volume, this is at 11. Almost like cheddar cheese mixed with green apples. Slow even burn time -Mind and body like melting butter, floating through hazy clouds. -Beware the munchies. Not a joke.
made the mistake of rolling a blunt like it was just some ok…WOOOOO I was zooted… excellent strain…relaxing happy and creative feeling…. oh…I put the blunt out qt way thru

If you like having a manhole cover dropped on your head after drinking an Americano, this is your strain. This weed made me numb and tingly. I felt awake but also hypnotized. I wouldn’t say stimulating. I’d go with what having a lobotomy probably feels like. The smell was hardly present. Clove cigarettes have a stronger odor. I’d buy it again if I were to have a long, intercontinental flight in order to make sure I didn’t give a shit. What a sneaky bastard of a strain.
Runtz is the Absolute Best flower on Gods green earth for people with a high tolerance & just want the best of best !!!!! FACT
Took two bong rips an I was floating over a rainbow into never land. I saw Peter Pan an shit my pants. I woke up in the bathtub☺️????????
Helped so much with pain, releasing muscle spasms and relaxation. It is potent, so I needed about 1/2 my usual dose, but oof what a relief. I’m buying this every chance I get. I was couch locked, but not prevented from getting up to do basic functions like bathroom or get food. Just say there feeling pleasantly talkative, happy and very relaxed. Took my pain from a 8 of 10 to a 4 of 10. Not many things can do that without making me unconscious. This is perfect. I also deeply appreciated the pleasant flavor. I’m not fond of the butt flavor or dank bugs or the fuel flavors. This was smooth and not sharp at all. Pleasant and enjoyable on all levels.

Amazing strain I haven’t been this high in a long time very euphoric
Pedro Rock –
I love this strain! Hubby too. I pack a bowl after sending our kids off to school then get busy on the house. Makes me feel uplifted, giddy and productive. I feel it more in the back of my head than the front which I like. It gives me a good buzz without affecting my thinking and function. Nice to smoke in the morning and evening but not too late or I can’t sleep. Would definitely recommend.
Okay, so I am High As Shit.This is a descendent of one of my alll time favorite strains, getalo, which was the main selling point for me but also I love crazy shit that tastes like candy. weeeed is so crazy genetically modified to get you fried and tasty great doing it and this is a gem. Pure relaxation, positivity, my mind feels light, i feel floaty and fine. hello hello i want to be friends with everyone. Potent but I’m still pretty functional, i was playing darts after my first bowl of this and i swear i got many bull eyes, not that i recommend throwing sharp objects while intoxicated although people play the game customarily in bars, and i felt much more clear headed but in touch with my body and motion. peace. Thanks SSD

I have adhd, anxiety and bipolar 2. Was shedding on my guitar like never before after 2 hits. Helps me with my confidence level and I feel in control. As a man it’s a great feelin, right? Anxiety almost nonexistent. I do breathwork also, which helps tremendously. Hope y’all enjoy ????????

This has just become my favorite nighttime go to. I’m a vet with PTSD, severe anxiety, and have ADHD as well. This strain did not aggravate my anxiety but calmed it. I experienced so much peace, calm, and relaxation that I had an incredible nights sleep. No restlessness or nightmares. Sleep was pure bliss.

This Strain is amazing to make edibles with. I made 150mg gummies and they make you feel like you’re flying high and you feel super motivated! I was LOOKING for things to do! It completely zapped away my anxiety and depression.
Josh Fowler –
It’s a slow hitting strain… 30 minutes to begin feeling theraputic levels so go easy. The overall feeling is slightly tingly, light headedness, pressure on the back of the eyes. This strain helps with focus and is quite relaxing… but it doesn’t have the same pain easing quality and mental alleviation as other strains. While I haven’t had many sessions with Runts… I’ve never been blown away. TBH It’s a decent flower it just doesn’t pack enough punch for me. Possibly at higher volumes it could be a better experience. For now… I look forward to emptying the bag.

This strain offered a relaxing, clear minded high. Was able to focus to do everyday things like order coffee but high enough that my brain was quiet.
Marion Monty –
Runtz is a great high thc medicinal strain. The after taste is very peppery. I am diagnosed with PTSD and major depression. I personally found Runtz to be best smoked in the mornings I would wake up in an agitated Eor mood. Runtz hits straight meaning there is no roller coaster high. It’s a serious minded high that puts a slight smirk on your face. Long story longer. It is great if you are naturally sarcastic. It hits fast, hard, and long…that’s what she said.

I’ve never had a dab land me on my @ss so quickly from one hit! This is my new favorite strain for chronic pain, anxiety, stress, energy, relaxation and homeostasis!
Honestly this is one of my top three strains, Blue Dream, Runtz, and Purple Punch are my top and Runtz is my favorite for creative thinking and problem solving. I love this for studying because the way my ideas and thoughts flow into one another is amazing. I could talk on and on about any subject. Everything tastes amazing and I love baking after smoking, it’s so nice for times that I can’t bring myself to eat anything. I could not recommend this strain enough
I like my weed sticky and just gross nice weed, this weed it’s exact opposite it’s about as crusty and dusty as my grandma’s cooch, and that is flaky as my uncles Nutsack. now I will say that the smell the weed has and the taste is like that feeling right when you’re skateboarding with your friends and you’re doing a trick and you eat absolute horseshit that’s what it smells like literally. high is fucking strong I’m not gonna lie. the grammars going to be bad i didn’t type this because i’m actively smoking and used siri Enjoy!

If God could pick a nug to smoke it would be Runtz! Look I am 45 been smoking the best shit for 27 years and Runtz is on my top 3. Get Some!! The taste, high and aroma is second to none.
Roert Kwo –
if u get a quad AAAA runtz it taste like grape crush…Gelato…fruitiness…gassy and potent as fuck.
Incredible stuff. Laughed at nothing for two straight hours and went back in time to 1994. Felt it head to toe. Tastes pretty good too.
RUNTZ is by far, out of the 500 or so different strains I’ve tried THE BEST. I’m used to taking gravity bong rips because of tolerance,. Not RUNTZ, only one hits from the batty is all anyone would ever need to enter a new dimension. And best of all my tolerance for this Strain never weakens. Don’t pass RUNTZ up.
This strain is comforting. I deal with a lot of PTSD and anxiety and Runtz has been my go to strain for the last few months. It’s slightly energizing but also relaxing. 10/10 would recommend if you like hybrids.
Was pitched as a more indica, nighttime weed – and while it definitely relaxes me, I find myself with a huge burst of creativity and talkativeness! The body high comes on later and is very tingly and relaxing. The high mellows out nicely, and I’ve had a dumb grin on my face all night. As a heavy smoker, this new strain pleasantly surprised me. Would highly recommend for a movie night, chill party, or before a delicious meal. Oh, and the smell! And the flavor. The name is no joke – so sweet. I can’t get enough of this bud.

Had a Batch hitting 24% & 25% Fire ???? Flower, Onset You Get A Sativa Feel, 15 mins Comes The Indica/Sativa Ratio, 30 mins Later The Indica Hits, Nice Couch Lock ????️ For Sure, Be Prepared To Be Stuck Within.
this shit fire
Very heavy euphoria , with a body buzz that lasts 2-3 hours. Tastes like runts fruit candy !
Christina Guitrz –
Usually when I smoke I’m very quiet, lowkey paranoid. My first time smoking runtz was awesome. I’m energetic! I’m not tired nor paranoid lol. Plus it smells fruity, and the hits are so smooth.
Quick to hit, long lasting. A heavy and relaxing high. Very calming without edging on tired.

I’m a toasted Frog ???? on a toasted log. That is all.
Tomas Khela –
In the words of Towlie, “Yep, that’s good shit!” Relaxed like an Indica but alert and creative like a Sativa. It also tingles my 50 year old testicles. That must be the euphoria everyone is talking about.
Anita Brown –
This strain is pretty nice. I spent the last few hours high on cotton candy before I moved onto Runtz Muffin and I feel very relaxed, but still alert and able to follow the TV show I’m watching. Feels nice and buzzy, fuzzy, and tingly like a warm hug. Going out into the summer heat from air conditioning feels like wrapping yourself in a warm duvet from the dryer on a cold morning. I give this strain two bowls way, way up!
This is my new favorite strain it taste absolutely amazing its so fresh and so potent, it has the best aromas,very loud! The high is very calming and relaxing perfect for anytime of the day honestly! ????????????????????????
Just rolled a nice fat one with a kingpin wrap. This shit is amazing. Tastes great. Smooth and clean on the inhale. Same on the exhale. And the high is amazing. Euphoric with a nice body high. Calm and relaxed but not couch locked. Can’t recommend enough.
This weed is definitely creative and an indica dominate strain. My friend rolled a skimpy ass backwood and it got us BLASTED. We were slapping so loud and we were up the night! Helps with anxiety and makes you talkative for great conversations ( hence the creativity ???? )a hard hitting strain that’ll take ANYOWN out!
I’m a photographer and this is one of my go-to strains when I am shooting something edgy or editorial. It’s seriously makes you so creative, and all the reviews are right, it makes conversation easy, especially when shared between both parties of the conversation! I don’t think I’ve ever been super giggly off it but almost no weed makes me giggly since I smoke every day lol. Good for those who struggle with anxiety. It helps me “see things clearly” when I’m anxious or in a depression cycle. Very much a relaxed, but not too sleepy high! Would recommend you buy this from SSD.
De Jong –
Out of my 15 years of smoking and trying new strains, this is still and will always be my favorite. Best high I have ever had from any strain! It feels just so unique and much more pleasant than any other strain of weed. VERY POTENT STRAIN! Honest opinion from Netherlands
