Grower: Thai Kush

Bahama Runtz is controversial in my household. The bud has a very strong aroma of the usual candy notes associated with Runtz, but with an added emphasis on the pineapple and a sour yogurt smell.  I found the aroma curious and intriguing—Mrs. Mendel found it off putting and retreated. While I can understand why the aroma may be controversial and subject to each consumer’s subjective tastes, the flavor for me is hands down excellent, with one of the most developed and delicious Runtz tastes of candied fruit, with strong pineapple flavors, and a spiciness akin to retsyn (which gave the now discontinued certs candies their distinctive taste). This may be the most interesting Runtz flavor I have come across. 

The high is very good, strong in the body and refreshing in the mind.  Refreshing, rejuvenating, with a stoned but awake and working head and a body which does not necessarily comply with the mind’s orders. It was very difficult to write my notes in book even though my thoughts seemed clear at the time. Even though the body is fairly useless after smoking this bud—the active mind will not induce sleep and may keep a consumer awake. There is a strange balance here that may confuse a novice consumer—but which I enjoyed.

Bahama Runtz is highly recommended for the curious consumer and for any fan of Runtz flavors.  It is not too overpowering for a novice consumer—but it may be hard to understand.
