Rare, potent, and exotic are three words that are often used to accurately describe a relatively new strain of cannabis called Apple Runtz. As indicated by its name, this strain is part of the wildly popular Runtz family of marijuana known for its remarkable flavors and smooth highs.

Apple Runtz is also known as Apple Runtz Sugar. Its origins are in the Los Angeles area. It has been attached to famous breeders such as Cali Bud, NEWSZN, and The Fire Society.

The lineage of the Blue Dream strain is a combination of the Central Asian heritage of the Blueberry indica marijuana strain mixed with the South East Asain heritage of the Super Silver Haze sativa marijuana strain. While the exact origin of Blue Dream is unclear, famous breeders DJ Short (Blueberry) and Mr. Nice (Super Silver Haze) created the strains used to make it.
Classified as a hybrid, Blue Dream includes a genetic ratio of 60% sativa and 40% indica. Despite having a high percentage of sativa phenotypes, it's not impossible to obtain a phenotype with more indica characteristics. However, it is not a common occurrence.
The THC content for Apple Runtz can range from moderate at 19% up to a far more potent level of 29%.
Blue Dream is considered a female plant. Technically, there are male and hermaphrodite versions; however, the female version has substantially more THC. Only unfertilized female plants are suitable for harvesting. Removing all others improves the quality and value of the harvest.

Cannabis, no matter what the strain, will almost always cause dry eyes or dry mouth with most users. This is not a concern for most people since eyedrops and staying hydrated before, during, and after using cannabis, typically help minimize those issues.

The smell of Apple Runtz is robust and delicious. A sour apple candy aroma is prominent. A sharp, spicy pineapple smell is also notable, and many people also describe a slight hint of citrus.
With many Top Shelf strains of marijuana, the high THC content is not always paired with a flavorful sensation that matches the quality of the high. However, Apple Runtz does not fall into that category. These fresh sticky nugs are sweet, delicious, and fruity. It matches well with the smell and is a very smooth and easy smoke overall.
Apple Runtz is a magnificent strain of cannabis with its bright green overall color. It comprises dense grape-shaped nugs with thin orange hairs and dark purple undertones. There is also a heavy coating of thick, tiny white crystal trichomes with a slight purple tint.
The appearance of the Blue Dream strain is heavily dependent on the conditions under which the crop is grown and the specific sub-species cultivated. Typically, the buds are a beautiful shade of green with orange and yellow pistils. The leaves can vary from orange to brown and even dark green.
All of the exact terpenes available in Apple Runtz are not yet known. However, some terpenes are known to be available in slightly higher doses. These terpenes include Caryophyllene, Phellandrene, Limonene, Valencene, Pinene, and Myrcene.
