Give mom her flowers with Pink Runtz—May 2024’s Leafly HighLight (2024)

You’re running low on time. The cool moms of America deserve some fine, trendy, fragrant weed for Mother’s Day and Memorial Day campouts. They’ve earned some Pink Runtz.

Why? It’s a battle out there. Moms need something pretty, fragrant, and relaxing that lightens the mood. Bring on that strawberry, sweet, grapefruit taste. Cue the giggly, talkative, happy effects—Pink Runtz wins our Leafly HighLight strain for May, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and beyond.

Around since at least 2020, Pink Runtz scores an average 4.6 out of 5 points after 334 ratings.

It’s got the high THC that moms need after unloading all those freakin’ groceries all by herself again, good God.

“The very first hit had the knot in my shoulder unwinding,” says one review.

One in four Pink Runtz smokers is hitting it for tension, mood, and life’s doo-doo.

“I’ve never been so happy and smiling while unclogging a toilet,” said another reviewer.

“My 13-year-old kid clogged the toilet. Here I am smiling, happy as a lark while I plunge this toilet with a rubber plunger. Probably in my top 5 all-time favorites.”

Pink Runtz packs flavor and a punch. So drink some water first, stay seated, and put your phone on airplane mode. It’s a relative of Leafly Strain of the Year 2020, Runtz.

“The smell is like a fruity pebbles almost. Crazy smell,” said one reviewer.

“Euphoric antidepressant. Great for social connection, being present, and open. Instant happiness,” said another.
