Jelly Runtz

from Solar Therapeutics

A colorful, juicy and smooth-smoking flower from one of Solar Cannabis’ most prestigious phenotypes.

Due to Rhode Island’s limited number of dispensaries, it’s easy to feel some redundancy with the available choices of Cannabis products in the state. Luckily, Solar Cannabis Company has two locations in Massachusetts bordering the Ocean State – one in Seekonk and the flagship in Somerset – both just a hop, skip and a jump from my hometown. We love to visit the South Shore, where the famous pizza is crust-less and the weed is recreationally legal for adults over 21. 

The Somerset dispensary is located in a large, state-of-the-art warehouse that’s also home to their massive solar-powered grow and packing facility. A laid-back atmosphere and helpful staff complete the trendy but professional vibes of this store featuring many new and interesting products to try.

After some talking and shopping around, we chose an eighth of their Jelly Runtz to enjoy on a warm and sunny spring day. A hybrid hailing from Humboldt Seed Company, Jelly Runtz was made by crossing Hella Jelly and White Runtz to create a well-balanced and sugary smoke. During a walk near Battleship Cove, we rolled up a  nice RAW joint with the well-cured and dense buds. 

This ultra-potent hybrid provided immediately tranquil effects, with terpenes boasting sweet and flowery undertones. The linalool dominated with a spring flower flavor and a sugar-packed aftertaste. Pleasant and effective, this joint was a perfect match for sunshine and fresh air. 

With the Gelato genetics behind this cultivar, Jelly Runtz is evenly psychoactive, colorful in appearance and has a fragrant terpene profile – all resulting in an uplifting and special smoking experience that creates mild euphoria and happiness, as well as works great for stress relief and as a natural pain killer that won’t leave you feeling tired and groggy. Hands down, this is a top tier flower that certainly proves Solar Cannabis has found their edge in the cultivation game.
