Black Runtz Strain Overview

Black Runtz is a shimmering cultivar with twinkling trichomes that glitter when shone under a light. It was created by plucking the genetics of two popular strains—Zkittles and Gelato—and is a phenotype of the original Runtz strain. 

Born to Philosopher Seeds, this cultivar’s THC levels top 25%, potentially allowing for full body relaxation and a spark of arousal. According to many users, you may expect to feel happy, sleepy, and pain-free with this anxiety-easing charmer of the cannabis world. Limonene lends a citrus scent to Black Runtz, which harbors the potential to reach lighter states of consciousness when dabbed or smoked responsibly.
