  • Energetic
  • Euphoric

Here’s how we like to describe Gruntz strain effects:

If you’re looking for that perfect hybrid that combines the feeling of total relaxation with an energetic lift, and that indescribable weightlessness and tingly sensation, then Gruntz could be your new favorite. 

The buzz starts in your spine and stretches its way through your limbs, leaving you with a calming body high that won’t leave you couch-locked. Gruntz is not a beginner strain, but for seasoned users, the hazy high gets you to the point of sedation, but not passing out — oh, and don’t forget the snacks!

With a super high THC level, the Gruntz strain is perfect for use as medical marijuana and ideal for afternoon toking.

Gruntz is the perfect strain for anyone looking to alleviate the symptoms of:

  • Chronic stress
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Chronic pain
  • Mood swings
  • Muscle spasms or cramps

Things to Do While Enjoying Gruntz Strain

While you may feel an immediate energetic lift thanks to the Sativa, the eventual relaxing vibe of the Gruntz strain will have you feeling body high and ready to chill. 

It’s best not to pull out your all-day to-do list with this strain, as your couch or beanbag chair will be calling to you soon enough. This high can last a while, so you’ll want an activity that is easy to manage while feeling sedated (but still functional), such as a Netflix marathon, adult coloring book, or strumming your guitar.

Based on the overall calming effects of the Indica dominant Gruntz strain, you’re probably best to avoid any strenuous activities — but, as always, everyone is different.

When under the influence of marijuana, including the Gruntz strain, we recommend that you do not drive or operate heavy machinery. 

Gruntz Strain Terpenes

Terpenes are what drive the richness in flavor and the experience you get from the bud. Next to the strain, terpenes are what determine the high you can expect from cannabis.

The dominant terpenes in Gruntz are: 

  • Myrcene – With its earthy and musky aroma, this terpene is also known as a powerful muscle relaxant.
  • Limonene – The chemical found in the peel of citrus fruits, limonene offers mood-enhancing properties that energize and exhilarate users.
  • Valencene – Not widely available, but known for its delicious orange, woody, and fresh herb flavors.
  • Phellandrene – Shown to decrease pain while increasing activity levels. Packs a pretty citrus flavor.
  • Terpineol – With a limey flavor, this terpene offers anxiety relief, sedation, and relaxation.

These terpenes give Gruntz the flavor and aroma that it’s famous for. With hints of fruit and berries, combined with earthy, citrus spice, and sourness, Gruntz is reminiscent of cotton candy. 

The aroma is similar to the candy-like taste but with pungent bursts of that earthy, skunky aroma everyone loves.

Gruntz Genetics

Gruntz is a cross between Gelato and Zkittlez from an unknown breeder and is now grown by West Coast Botanica, though it can be hard to source on the local market. 

  • Gelato is an Indica-dominant strain known for its delicious fruity flavor, creamy finish, and relaxing, euphoric high.
  • Zkittlez is a well-respected, award-winning, Indica-dominant strain with a unique fruity flavor that users love.
