Where Runtz Cake Comes From: Backstory and Genetics

While our sources agree that Cake Runtz is the “child” of two knockout strains, its origins are somewhat of a mystery, with no one being quite sure who first bred this delicious hybrid. Regardless, its pedigree speaks for itself:

  • White Runtz: Relaxing, tingly, and long-lasting, White Runtz gets its name from its abundant frosting of white trichomes—a hint to its potency. In addition to its sweet flavor, this strain is known for chasing away symptoms of chronic pain and anxiety.
  • Wedding Cake: Sweet and flavorful, this hybrid strain delivers equal parts uplift and carefree relaxation. But be careful: With a THC level around 24%, it’s best approached with caution!

Descending from one of the most popular strain families of recent years—Runtz—if you go back even further back in Runtz Cake’s lineage, you’ll find other beloved strains like Gelato, Zkittlez, Thin Mints and GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) representing a solid genetic profile alongside its indulgent aromas and flavors.

What Does Runtz Cake Smell and Taste Like?

The word “cake” in its name should hint at Runtz Cake’s deliciousness. Often described as imparting a blast of sweet, ripe berries with overtones of spice, fuel, and creamy vanilla, it’s a notably delicious smoke.

Those characteristics come from Runtz Cake’s terpenes, the characteristic aromatic oils present in all strains. And with the strain’s most dominant terpene being caryophyllene, you can expect it to impart spicy, peppery notes—in addition to potential antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions.

Potential Runtz Cake Effects and Benefits

What about cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, the “major active ingredients” in cannabis? While exact percentages vary from harvest to harvest, Cake Runtz has an average THC level of around 18%, making it potent but not overwhelmingly so. But if you’re looking for CBD, the “second cannabinoid,” best to search elsewhere.

Though it’s a hybrid strain, people report that Runtz Cake is more relaxing than energizing, offering a solid mood uplift that can melt into giggly and relaxed experience that may leave you feeling hungry.

What other benefits can we expect from Runtz Cake? In addition to imparting that distinctive psychoactive “high,” THC has been shown to fight pain and inflammation and may help us get a better night’s rest. It may even help tackle historically difficult-to-treat conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS).
