Weed has evolved well beyond the classic strains, with decades of breeding creating exciting blends that range from potent indicas and vibrant sativas to balanced hybrids. One notable modern cultivar is Rainbow Runtz, an award-winning indica-leaning hybrid strain known for its pungent flavor notes, including berries, flowery herbs, and sweet fruits.
Rainbow Runtz Strain
The Rainbow Runtz strain has multiple origins. Out of London, Chosen Seeds crosses their Rainbow Candy strain (Zkittlez x Do-Si-Dos x Zkittlez) with Gelato #41 to create Rainbow Runtz. This would mean it also has the beloved Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet strains in its family tree, creating a more balanced, hybrid experience. Conversely, Exotic Genetix, out of Tacoma, Washington, crosses Rainbow Chip with Runtz to create a more indica-dominant strain. Thus, Mint Chocolate Chip, Sunset Sherbert, Gelato, and Zkittlez are also in its family tree. Though different processes, both produce a similarly vibrant and potent strain. Other sources claim Rainbow Runtz comes from a cross of Skittlez and DoSiDos.
Because of its full-bodied flavors and broad spectrum of effects, Rainbow Runtz has won awards like Best Hybrid Flower at the High Times Medical Cup. Consumers flock to this strain because it offers a consistent, relaxing experience. Recreational users report that Rainbow Runtz is calming and social, while medical users use it for pain and stress relief and as an aid for sleep and appetite. The Runtz family strain takes after its relatives, containing around 21-25% THC.
Because of its strong genetic background, Rainbow Runtz has a robust figure and color palette. The dense buds are olive at their base with deep purple undertones and pastel green peppered across the surface. Shiny crystal trichomes are littered throughout every nook and cranny.
