Genetics: (Gelato #41 x Runtz)


Originally bred by Grounded Genetics, pheno hunted by Muffin Man, grown by Canna Z.


Review from The Bud Studio –


“After cracking the pot open, I picked up on a substantial hit of slightly musty candied Runtz terps with a hint of powdered milk on the initial aroma. This was accented by a slightly herbaceous undertone of mild earthy notes, as well as a smooth yet subtle layer of creaminess. After breaking up some of the buds, I got a burst of classic ‘Bacio Gelato’ notes come into the aroma – gassy and nutty terps for the most part, bringing about a sweet and creamy effect with them. This also had a mildly musty and dank effect to it on closer inspection sitting on the bottom end of the profile.
All of these characteristics got turned up a level or two after grinding up the buds – the gassy qualities of the Gelato terps leapt up greatly in loudness; now becoming one of the predominant notes in the aroma. This was met with an upturn in the presence of the sweeter, candy terps of the Runtz as well, giving the sweetness of the Gelato more depth. I could specifically pick out distinct terps of cherry and peach, with a mild citrus influence on them on the top notes, which gave a restrained but lovely tropical effect to the overall profile.
After rolling up, on the dry pull I got some fairly clear notes of summer berries on the palate, somewhat broad in overall appearance, but still with a noticeable hint of those aforementioned notes of cherries and peach about them. These fruity terps were intertwined nicely on a bed of pungent candy-like sweetness coming from the Runtz still, making for a truly mouthwatering flavour.
After sparking up, I found that the initial flavour was mostly comprised of sweet, creamy top notes accented by that same fruitiness, with bottom notes of pretty strong, musty gas at play. The distinct nuttiness from the Gelato genetics became noticeable just a few tokes into the joint, mixing among the bottom notes of gas. There was a vague floral quality that accented the general flavour throughout most of the joint which I found rather unique and enjoyable.
This flower certainly had very strong effects – a lot of lung expansion with a bit of pressure in the chest and behind the eyes from around about halfway through the joint. A rush of euphoria with a mild lack of orientation came on initially after finishing the joint, certainly some head rush in action. After some time, this gradually developed into a more calming body high, very relaxing in fact, while still maintaining a bit of a buzz to it.
All in all, I found that this strain lived up to the hype that I automatically placed in it simply for crossing two of some of my favourite strains for flavour. It seemed to strike an evenly keeled balance of both parents’ lineage on the palate as well as the nose, which made for a really pleasurable experience for me personally. As mentioned above, the effects were all that as well as the flavour, so if you’re looking for a flower that packs a punch in both departments then look no further!”
