Today we will take another look at Runtz from Cookies Enterprises, not to be confused with fake Runtz carts from other black market and counterfeit labels. Runtz is currently one of the most popular brands to be released under the Cookies Enterprises umbrella. It originates from the strain of the same name, which won Leafly’s Strain of the Year for last year. We have previously reviewed many of the extracts from numerous Cookies collaborative brands, such as Lemonnade, Minntz, and Runtz. We have also reviewed the jelly sauce cartridge from Blue River collaboration with Cookies. For this review, I will take a look at the pros and cons of the Runtz sauce cartridge (formerly called HTE Terp Sauce or Premium Terp Sauce vape cartridge) from Cookies Enterprises.
Recommendations: It would be greatly appreciated if the cartridges were labeled with the logo and/or strain name.
The build quality and design of the cartridge is solid and efficient using AVD hardware with a white ceramic tip. The same goes for all the brands from Cookies Enterprises. This sauce cartridge is slightly thinner and less dark than the jelly sauce cartridge from Blue River in collaboration with Cookies. Compared to other similar sauce cartridges, this seems to burn slightly quicker than usual, so did Grandiflora and Lemonnade.
In addition, this had fewer airflow issues than the Jelly sauce cartridge, which started to clog during the latter half of the cartridge. A variable voltage or a low temp battery is also highly advised for this sauce cartridge to get the best flavor and/or the desired potency. For this review, I used the PCKT One +, the Utillian battery, and the Alpine variable voltage battery for these cartridges with little to no problems and/or issues.
This week, I picked up their Obama Runtz, which is a hybrid cross of Afghani, OG Kush, and Runtz. The taste of Obama Runtz is sweet, earthy, and grassy with hints of citrus, spices, and pine. The effects combine both Indica and Sativa properties with a cerebral euphoric rush that settles into full-body relaxation of the nerves and muscles. This Obama Runtz sauce cartridge is not quite as tasty as the Blue River and Cookies Jelly sauce cartridge. However, this felt overall tastier than the sauce cartridges from Lemonnade and Grandiflora Genetics. The THC-A % of this Obama Runtz sauce cartridge is 10.58%, the D9 THC % is 55.72% and less than 2 mg of CBD.
The other Runtz sauce cartridge I picked up was their Pink Runtz, which is a hybrid cross between Runtz, Rainbow Sherbet, and Pink Panties. The taste of Pink Runtz is sweeter, fruitier, and more floral than the Obama Runtz sauce cartridge. The effects also feel similar to Obama Runtz with a similar combination of relaxing Indica and uplifting Sativa properties. Both sauce cartridges were perfect for any time of day as it possesses balanced hybrid effects. The THC % of this Pink Runtz sauce cartridge is 67.83% and the CBD is 0.322%.
The prices for the sauce cartridge from Cookies Enterprises range around $35 for a half-gram cartridge, pre-tax. In my opinion, these cartridges are worth the prices for their oil quality, potency, taste, and value. Overall, these Runtz sauce cartridges were almost as tasty and potent as the Runtz live resin concentrates we’ve reviewed previously here. This felt slightly weaker than the Blue River and Cookies Cereal Milk Jelly sauce cartridge. However, both sauce cartridges felt slightly tastier than the sauce cartridges from Lemonnade and Grandiflora Genetics, specifically their Medellin and Project 4510 respectively. In terms of flavor, I also preferred the Pink Runtz over the Obama Runtz, but Obama Runtz felt more potent.
I would recommend these sauce cartridge from Cookies Enterprises for its excellent oil quality, above-average potency, great taste, and solid affordable value. I had little to no issues throughout the use of both sauce cartridges. However, these weren’t quite as tasty and potent as the jelly sauce from the Blue River collaboration with Cookies. But they felt tastier and stronger than the sauce cartridges from Lemonnade and Grandiflora Genetics.
Among the Cookies brand regular sauce cartridges, I felt that the Runtz sauce cartridges were the best tasting so far. It’s better than Lemonnade and Grandiflora Genetics. If the Blue River x Cookies Jelly sauce cartridges are sold out or unavailable, I feel that these sauce cartridges are the next best choice amongst all the Cookies brands. Currently, Runtz offers flower eighths, concentrates, pre-rolls, and half gram sauce cartridges. They are available at most Cookies and Lemonnade locations as well as select dispensaries throughout California.
