It might not have won any accolades, but it is still one of the most sought-after indica strains in existence. This is because it produces an amazing cascading effect of euphoria and mental clarity. Hence, the strain is one of the most popular strains for artists or creative professionals. 


With the lineage out of the way, it is time that we start looking at some of the iconic characteristics that set this strain apart from other strains. In this section, we will look at three primary categories, including ‘THC Percentage,’ ‘Flavor & Aroma Profile’, and ‘Terpenes.’ This will help us understand and study the strain with more clarity and context. So here we go. 

THC Percentage

The Gruntz strain is actually for people with high tolerance levels. This is because the strain is an Indica-dominant strain with around 25% to 35% THC. This makes the strain worthy of the big leagues. In other words, this strain is not for everyone.  As soon as you take a swig, you will immediately feel the rush of that high THC percentage getting to work. And it will eventually start a cascading effect.

Flavor & Aroma Profile

Even though Gruntz is a highly popular strain, every user seems to have a different take on the aroma and flavor profile. While reviewing, I personally felt that there was a hint of tanginess and sweetness of candies. Soon enough, those initial flavors subside, and a slight skunky and burnt wood flavor hijacks your senses. 

The aroma profile is similar to its taste. The dry bud exudes the iconic Runtz family skunk, along with the sweetness of berries and grapes. All in all, the Gruntz strain is a treat to an individual’s senses. And the sole reason behind this is because of its terpene profile.

Terpenes are the most important factors when it comes to the flavor and aroma of a particular strain. Here is a detailed list of some of the primary terpenes that the strain boasts. 


Caryophyllene or Beta-Caryophyllene is the most common terpene found in cannabis. This terpene gives a spicy, woody, and burnt essence to the strain. Apart from flavor profile, terpene is also a major contributor to the medicinal side of things. 


As the name suggests, this triterpene is popular for its citrusy flavor and effects on inflammation. This terpene is tried and tested when it comes to reducing inflammation and increasing dopamine levels. 


Linalool is not very common in cannabis but is primarily found in flowers like rosewood, lavender, laurel, etc. This gives the strain a sweet, flowery aroma profile. The terpene is also known for alleviating gastrointestinal problems. Therefore, this adds to the myriad of benefits of the Gruntz strain. 


The Gruntz strain is a great strain that will surely lift your spirits with a warm sense of euphoria and relaxation. In other words, it has a positive mood-altering capability that most other strains do not have. 

Due to its varied terpene profile and high THC content, this strain is known to help people with depression, anxiety, BPD (Bipolar Disorder), and many other mental illnesses. In fact, the strain is one of the most effective strains when managing chronic and acute pain. One cancer survivor claimed that this strain helped him deal with his chemo pain.

Therefore, it is a perfectly healthy strain that can be used recreationally as well as medicinally. However, you need to understand that you need to consume the strain in moderation. Otherwise, the strain can certainly knock your socks off.
