Looking for an award-winning hybrid strain that provides energy and euphoria? Discover Berry Runtz and the unique terpene profile that gives it such mouthwatering flavor and effects.
It’s new, it’s delicious, and it already won Leafly’s coveted Strain of the Year award in 2020. And considering it only made its debut in 2017, that’s pretty dang impressive. Today, we’re talking about Berry Runtz.
Before we jump in too deep, we want to remind everyone that we offer cannabis-free terpenes that are 100% legal in every state. However, we do work very hard to isolate the specific terpene profiles of popular strains so that both cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from them.
We’ll talk a bit about the actual cannabis strain, but we mostly want to highlight the juicy, mildly fruity aroma and euphoric effects created by its unique terpene blend. Some strains are timeless (shout out to OG Kush!), but then strains like this one come along and completely change the game. Keep reading and discover why Berry Runtz is turning heads and winning awards.

Berry Runtz | Get to Know Your Favorite Strain
This strain is hot on the scene, so we understand if you’re anxious for details…
- It’s no surprise that Berry Runtz has a sweet, candy-like flavor and aroma with parents like Zkittlez and Gelato.
- D-Limonene makes up 28% of this mouthwatering blend. It also provides a boost of energy and mood-elevating properties.
- Myrcene lends a subtle tropical quality to the berry flavors of this blend. Plus, it promotes relaxation, sedation, and plays a big role in the hybrid nature of Berry Runtz.

- The Berry Runtz experience combines the best of Sativa and Indica effects. It’s calming and soothes anxiety while also providing a much-needed boost of energy and euphoria.
- If you can get your hands on seeds, this plant is relatively easy to grow. When cultivated properly, you’ll end up with grape-shaped buds that are practically dripping in trichomes.

Berry Runtz Terpene Profile
As a cross between strains like Zkittlez and Gelato, it’s no surprise that Berry Runtz has a sweet, candy-like flavor and aroma. It’s reminiscent of candy and berries with subtle creamy notes. For such a new strain, the candy-like experience is surprisingly nostalgic. Let’s put it this way...Willy Wonka would be proud.
But that mouth-watering flavor didn’t just appear out of nowhere. While its terpene profile is made up of over 30 different isolates, the dominant terpenes of Berry Runtz are Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene.
If you loved the tartness of the original Runts candy, you’ll appreciate this. D-Limonene makes up a whopping 28% of this blend, and it’s a big part of its fruit-forward flavor. Found in fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges, it’s no surprise that it lends a citrusy aroma and flavor to Berry Runtz. Plus, it’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory and has mood-elevating properties.
Myrcene adds a subtle tropical vibe to the berry flavors of this blend. Found in mango, hops, lemongrass, and even eucalyptus, its scent is sweet and minty and it plays a shockingly big role in the overall strain effect. It’s believed myrcene can increase the permeability of the blood-brain barrier. This is particularly important for cannabis since it means myrcene may boost the effectiveness of cannabinoids and other terpenes. Even without that, however, Myrcene is prized for its sedative and analgesic effects.
Considering its spicy nature, you may be surprised to hear that Beta-Caryophyllene makes up 21% of the Berry Runtz blend. Found in various spices (black pepper, caraway, oregano, etc.), this isolate has a spicy, woodsy aroma. However, one of the really magical things about beta-caryophyllene is its structure. This terpene has a unique shape that lets it bind easily to CB2 receptors for powerful anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and even mood-elevating effects.
The other 30+ terpene isolates help create the overall flavor, aroma, and effects of Berry Runtz. And speaking of effects…
The Berry Runtz Effect
Yes, the flavor is phenomenal and the aroma is unforgettable, but the effects of this strain are exquisite. Seriously, it’s like the effects were designed for modern living! It’s euphoric without the paranoia, and it’s relaxing without the couch lock. At Abstrax, we’ve long understood the artistry and dedication that goes into cultivating cannabis strains. Berry Runtz, perhaps more than any new strain we’ve seen in a while, truly illustrates that concept.
Berry Runtz is right in the sweet spot. It’s a hybrid with all the best parts of both Sativa and Indica dominant strains. We’re talking about effects like sedation and reduced anxiety combined with energy and mood-elevation. Basically, it calms and relaxes while giving a subtle boost of energy and euphoria.
We don’t know about you, but that sounds like the perfect social lubricant to us. It will spark creativity, ease anxiety, put an energetic pep in your step, and we haven’t even gotten started on the physical effects. While the mental vibes are pretty chill, Berry Runtz also comforts your body like a thick weighted blanket. Some consumers have even said the bone-deep body buzz lasts 2-3 hours.
Plus, non-cannabis consumers can also experience the Berry Runtz effects by using products infused with this terpene blend. Don’t get us wrong, it’s still pretty mind-blowing in cannabis products. But the ability to infuse everyday products with terpenes means everyone can experience their flavor and effects.
Berry Runtz Cultivation
We’ll start with one phrase...resin drenched. The buds of this strain are seriously works of art. Plus, if you can get your hands on Berry Runtz seeds (good luck!) then get ready for a hardy plant that’s moderately easy to grow.
It can be grown both indoors and outdoors, but outdoors is preferable for several reasons. First, she can be a tall lady. Berry Runtz may be a hybrid, but its Sativa roots make themselves known as it quickly shoots upwards. More advanced growers can successfully use high-stress training techniques to promote a wider plant, but if you’ve got the space you can save time by just letting it do its thing.
The second reason outdoor cultivation is often preferred is yield. Indoor yields usually sit between 14-16 ounces per square meter, but outdoor yields run between 18 ounces per plant. Either way, this fast-growing plant needs lots of nutrients. Don’t be stingy with water and nutrients, and you might even consider additional nitrogen. So long as you don’t see any nutrient burn, you’re in the clear.
If properly grown, you’ll end up with buds that start purple/pink in the warmer months and finish darker, almost black-purple in the fall. And remember when we said “resin drenched?” Yeah, that was no joke. The trichomes are practically dripping off the grape-shaped nugs. Thin orange hairs, dark purple undertones, and a frosting of crystal trichomes make this strain a feast for the eyes.
