Top 3 strains of 2020
By now, you are probably sick of hearing about gelato crosses and strains named after Willy Wonka subsidiaries (I know I am). Bias aside, including the fact it smells nothing like real Italian Gelato to me, Runtz lives up to the hype. A cross between Zkittlez and Gelato, the fruity flavor profiles explode out of the nugs that ooze bag appeal. If you manage to get your hands on some Runtz, try to find a grower who has legitimate genetics- don’t just go for the fancy packaging that might be the most popular.
Northern California is known for many things…wineries…beautiful natural forests, and pot farms the size the size of New Hampshire. Bred by Lumpy Farms, this cross of Sour Apple x Animal Cookies has been arguably the most hype strain in 2020. The tart floral smell, combined with the surprising potency and effectiveness as medicine has contributed to the legendary status of this strain. It might not actually remind you of a donut, but you might be reaching for a dozen Krispie Kreme’s if you over-indulge on this powerful hybrid.
Cannabis plants can fill almost every single natural flavor profile. Fruity, musky, stanky, and now, finally, chemical-mint. I’ve had my fair share of experiences with a variety of strains, from cat-piss to GMO, but this strain is unique. With a lineage of (Gelato 45 x (White Diesel x (High Octane x Jet Fuel)), the powerful aromatics show out to really slap you in the face with each inhale. Compound Genetics hit the nail on the head with one, combining an amazingly unique cultivar that all growers should be trying to get their hands on.
