Runtz is relatively easy strain to grow indoors growing to a managable height of 100cm-180cm even without heavy topping, or LST training. In just 8-10 weeks, you can expect to harvest yields of 400-500gr/m² of dense, tightly packed buds that are a delight to break up, and grind. Last but not least, the variety lives up to its name in color, as it can boast an array of colors like the candy it's named after.
During the vegetative stage:
In its vegetative phase, Runtz will stay quite low adding its second, third, and fourth nodes within the first 12 inches of growth. Because of its squat shape, you should implement techniques like “tie-and-bend" or Screen of Green (ScrOG) around the third or fourth week, depending on space availability. This will help to open up its bushy structure and increase light penetration to all potential bud sites. As a moderately heavy feeder you can start a nutrient schedule quite early, in smaller doses, and begin to ramp it up as the veg cycle progresses. However, as the vegetative phase concludes, reduce nitrogen levels and begin increasing bloom nutrients to set the stage for flowering.
During the flowering stage:
Preflowers will emerge around the end of the second week after changing the lights to 12/12. If growing outdoors, you can expect flowering to commence two weeks after the days begin to shorten during the summer season. The Indica-dominant genetics continue to shine during flowering, as you will notice dense, compact buds with a rich, verdant coloration beginning to form. As the plant transitions through flowering, its nutritional demands peak. The main flowering nutrients, especially phosphorus and potassium, become crucial. Ensure you start with these nutrients early in this phase and slowly reduce as harvest approaches. Runtz isn’t necessarily a heavy feeder, but it appreciates consistency. A distinctive sweet, fruity aroma will begin to fill your grow space as the plant matures. It is essential that you maintain optimal humidity levels and keep an eye out for any mold or pest issues. The color of the trichomes will tell you the optimal time for harvest. Milky white with a touch of amber indicates peak ripeness, offering the best cannabinoid profile.
Is Runtz suitable for beginners?
Runtz is a great option for beginner growers thanks to its forgiving nature to minor mistakes and versatility to a range of climates. The nutritional and maintenance requirements are fairly straightforward and new growers should comfortably be able to achieve high yields from their Runtz plants.
A fast-acting and exhilarating buzz, Runtz is one strain you’ll keep coming back for more of. The 55% indica, 45% sativa combination delivers a well-balanced and versatile high ideal for daytime or night. Beginners beware, however, as the strain can easily reach high levels of THC near 20-24%. You’ll first feel a rush of euphoria to the mind, as a soothing calmness takes over the body from head to toe. Even more, the effects are long-lasting in nature and ideal for relieving symptoms of pain, like arthritis, stress and nausea, too. With certain doses, this variety can help you feel completely sedated for a sound night of rest, and no trouble falling asleep.
How does Runtz make you feel?
Runtz offers a diverse range of effects from both the Indica and Sativa sides of the spectrum. The Indica induces a soothing, body-focused calm and the Sativa contributes to a noticeable cerebral uplift that is often described as energizing. The blend of sensations means users experience a pleasant mix of mental clarity and physical relaxation.
Does Runtz have any medical applications?
Runtz has gained attention from the medical cannabis community, with users noting potential benefits for issues like stress, pain, and nausea. The strain's high THC content and minimal CBD levels suggest its potency might play a role in these reported alleviations.
How Strong is Runtz?
Runtz is renowned for its potent THC levels of 20-24%, making it a strong variety even by modern standards. When you combine this with a wide cannabinoid profile and the fact that it’s an Indica/Sativa hybrid, this is a strain that shouldn’t be underestimated.
What does Runtz taste and smell like?
Runtz is a treat for the senses. It has a noticeable palate of sweet, fruity flavors reminiscent of fresh berries and of course the candies that it is named after.
The aroma is pungent and slightly citrus in the earlier part of the flowering process. This increases and deepens with a more floral and earthy undertone from approximately half way through the flowering process.
What are the terpenes in Runtz weed?
Runtz has a distinct taste and aroma that can be credited to its dominant terpenes: Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Limonene. Caryophyllene lends a spicy touch, Myrcene offers earthy and fruity tones, while Limonene imparts a refreshing citrus note. Combining these terpenes helps shape the strain's iconic sweet and fruity profile.
Reminiscent of the candy, Runtz will leave a sugary aftertaste on your tongue after its smooth inhales and exhales. The strain’s terpene combination delivers a fruity taste, with sweet candy-like undertones that’ll satisfy any sweet tooth. Berries, citrus, and fruit, oh my! You’ll be waiting for another taste of this deliciously delightful strain.
