Effects & Usage



Black Runtz, a popular Indica-dominant hybrid, is a variant of the classic Runtz strain. This strain features THC levels as high as 30% while, on average, it varies between 19-25%. This potent THC range contributes to its powerful effects, making it a popular choice for experienced cannabis users seeking a solid and lasting high.


Black Runtz is known for its fairly rapid onset, with users often reporting a quick transition into its characteristic high.

Upon use, this cultivar induces a mental high, which gradually spreads into a full-body calm. It’s known for its ability to sedate, leaving users’ couches locked and ready for a restful end to the day. However, this body doesn’t kick in until the minor cerebral rush has subsided.

This strain is versatile in its applications. It’s frequently chosen for its ability to enhance mood and creativity, making it a favourite among artists and thinkers.


Black Runtz is well-suited for managing conditions like chronic pain, ADHD, insomnia, stress, and mood swings. It’s also beneficial for those struggling with eating disorders, chronic nausea, and general unsettledness.

Side Effects

With its high THC levels, beginners should definitely be cautious. Overuse may lead to dry mouth, dry eyes, increased paranoia, and anxiety, particularly when consumed in larger quantities or by individuals who may be more sensitive to THC’s effects. Therefore, it’s recommended to start with a low dose.

Taste & Smell


Black Runtz buds are visually striking, displaying dark green hues with pink-tinted, crystal-coated leaves and hints of blue and purple. 

The aroma combines sweet berries with herbal, pungent, and earthy tones, while the flavour offers a delightful mix of citrus, spicy, and sweet, with tropical pineapple undertones.



This strain is a cross between Black Diamond Sherbet and Runtz. Its lineage includes the popular Zkittlez and Gelato strains, contributing to its unique flavor profile.
