Welcome to another month, and another weed strain profile. We are in the midst of summer and with that comes all the tropical and citrus varieties of marijuana that will deliver the flavor and the high that you’re looking for. Tropical Runtz is a limited strain series from the Runtz family, so finding this variety may prove to be slightly difficult, unless you are shopping at one of Smokey Okie’s partner dispensaries.
If you’re in need of a beach vacation and are ready for all the tropical vibes, then Tropical Runtz is for you. It’s a cross between the popular and always-trending Runtz and Tropic Truffles, which stems from Tropicana Cookies and Mint Chocolate Chip. Combining the two into Tropical Runtz leads to a flavor profile that you’ve never experienced before, and we are proud to feature this as a limited summer strain to all our Smokey Okie’s consumers in the state of Oklahoma.
Tropical Runtz Weed Descriptions
To really understand Tropical Runtz, it’s good to be familiar with the Runtz strain in general. With its name based on the iconic candy, Runtz is a hybrid strain from Zkittlez and Gelato. This combination creates the candy-like flavor and experience. Runtz itself has become increasingly popular over the course of the last few years and a variety of Runtz strains has been created since, such as Runtz Muffin and our feature this month–Tropical Runtz. The other half of this match made in heaven is Tropic Truffles, which brings in orange flavors and produces a happy high. Tropical Runtz is bred by Exotic Genetix and grown at Smokey Okie’s indoors and hydroponically.

Tropical Runtz Weed Flavor Profile
Have you ever noticed that every summer, candy companies will push out tropical versions of their fruity candies? You may have seen Tropical Starburst, Skittles, or Jolly Ranchers. Tropical Runtz is the same idea in terms of marijuana. Of course, given the name Tropical Runtz, you can expect a fruity flavor profile, but focusing on the tropical variety of fruits including orange, mango, and an extra dose of lemon citrus from the limonene. Standalone Runtz, from the moment you open the container of buds, give off a berry sweet and mango aroma. With Tropical Runtz, the lavender colored buds will have you experiencing that same fruitiness with added orange that overtakes the berry flavoring and pushes this flavor profile toward the tropical. You may also taste or smell some very slight earthy undertones, such as lavender, which is likely connected to the presence of linalool in the seed.
Smoking Experience with Tropical Runtz Weed
Tropical Runtz brings with it heavy amounts of the linalool, limonene, and nerolidol terpenes. Linalool is a floral terpene that delivers a relaxing mood enhancement. Limonene reacts with the THC in order to help combat any potential paranoia or anxiety that the THC levels may cause and brings with it the tropical lemony twist. Finally, nerolidol triples down on the anti-anxiety and relaxation effects of this strain. This combination presents in a very happy fruity taste, but ends in a sedative high that is uber-relaxing and great for stress relief. The high creates a heavy mellow heady high feeling with some tingling and helps to unwind your mind, making it a great unwind at the end of a long day to take the edge off. It’s probably not the best option for a creative high, as it can have you moving and thinking a little bit slower.
