Background of the Banana Runtz Strain

Banana Runtz is the perfect mix of Indica and Sativa with a balance of 50-50. At times, you will find that either Indica-dominant hybrids or Sativa-dominant hybrids are available for you to try. You can ask your local dispensaries about their own available stocks for a better picture on this.

There are two combinations that make up the Banana Runtz strain, the popular Zkittlez and Gelato pairing, and the Solfire Gardens version which crosses Banana OG and Runtz. The one that will be talked about in the rest of this article will be the Zkittlez x Gelato variation.

With a wide range of 20-26% for THC, you just have to make sure the supply you pick is somewhere around your preferred percentage. 26% packs a strong punch and will have you couch-locked for a long time, one of the main reasons Californians have really taken a liking to this sweet strain.

The Runtz hype was built up after hip hop Rapper “Yunglb_litt” discovered the Runtz marijuana brand. The brand launched an array of flavors that trended after the rapper engaged in collaborations with other rappers like Playboi Carti, Young thugs YSL Gang, Nav, Moneybagg Yo, and more. Rappers and their own street cred really raise the popularity of the weed brands they support.
