Runtz is a strain of cannabis fresh out of LA, with a terpene profile most would describe as candy. However, Runtz as a strain has an incredibly diverse number of phenotypes, which can drastically effect its data. As such, it is almost impossible to say whether Runtz is a Sativa or Indica leaning hybrid, as different phenotypes end up leaning different ways. This also stands true for the THC and CBD levels, which are tested on a per-grow basis, and not available on the internet at the moment.
Runtz is a popular strain amongst cannabis smokers big into the culture and the advertising behind the packaging of cannabis products. You might have put it together already, but the growers named the strain Runtz based on its sugary-sweet aromatic and flavor profile, in addition to the way the bud looks. If dried and cured correctly, users will be able to spot colors beyond green in the bud. A vibrant array of colors from blues and purples to dark greens and bright oranges are often found in the tight, dense buds of Runtz. It is an incredibly hard strain to find,
Benefits and Effects Runtz Weed
Due to its rarity and the number of different phenotypes, the THC content of the Runtz strain can vary drastically. These levels are usually tested on a per-grow basis and can range anywhere between 19-29% THC. Extreme caution must be adhered to when purchasing or consuming this strain, as that difference is vast. 29% THC is incredibly potent and will rock novice and experienced cannabis consumers alike. There is not much data for the average CBD levels of this strain.
Information on this strain is scarce, but most users report a high with euphoric and relaxing effects that are felt in both the head and body. These are the typical effects of many hybrid strains. Some of these effects may even have medical potential. Many users recommend this strain for anxiety and stress relief due to its mood-lifting effects. Pain relief is another reported benefit as this strain can help to manage mild aches and pains.
Some of the higher THC variations of this strain may induce feelings of paranoia in novice consumers and people predisposed to those feelings. It is not recommended as a stress reliever if you belong to these groups.
Accompanying this physical relaxation are some mind-expanding cognitive effects. These include increased energy and creativity, making this a popular strain for activities. Indoor activities are recommended over outdoor ones because once these cognitive effects wear off, you are left with a strong indica body stone. This will leave your muscles relaxed and your mind numb. A strong case of the ‘munchies’ is also reported after consumption of this strain.
Jungle Boys Strains
As mentioned previously, the Jungle Boys plant hundreds of different phenotypes in search of just the right one that smells and yields the best. While other brands are focused on bag appeal, the Jungle Boys focus on rich terpene content. Here are some of their most popular strains you might have come across.
Sundae Driver is an indica-dominant hybrid bred from Fruity Pebbles and Grape Pie, so you can just imagine how good it smells. Consumers have noted sweet and chocolatey scents as well as purple leaves from this hybrid. Sundae Driver is said to provide a relaxing and potent body high, perfect for a lazy Sunday.
Jungle Cake is an indica-hybrid made by crossing White Fire 43 (WiFi 43) with Wedding Cake strains. These flower buds are large, dense, and heavily frosted in trichomes.

Strawberry Shortcake is the first Exotikz release, which is made with White and Wookies strains. The result is a heavy indica with a distinct strawberry aroma and flavor.

Its high THC content is said to provide cerebral and uplifting effects that can be used during any time of day.
Mimosa #14 was selected as the best of the bunch and for good reason. It went on to win first place at a Chalice Cup. It’s a cross between Clementine and Purple Punch strains. The strong genetics give Mimosa an orange and grape-flavored smell and taste with its relatively high beta-caryophyllene and linalool levels.
