The Ether Runtz strain was developed as a rare indica-dominant hybrid (70% Indica/30% Sativa). This Runtz strain is a special high potency cut of the infamous Alien Dawg, a cross of Chemdawg X Alien Technology. Ether contains a great deal of THC, ranging from 14% to 21%. Cali Connect selectively bred this Runtz strain, to be highly sedative in nature. For people who have a low tolerance to THC or who suffer from panic attacks or paranoia, Ether is a good option.
Ether is known for its solid, massive flowers. The buds generally resemble pinecones, with a broad base and a sharp tip. Ether like most Indica-leaning strains is distinguished by its densely packed leaves, which exhibit curly, overlapping structures. The leaves of this amazing Runtz strain are yellowish-green and covered with hairy, rust-colored pistils. Lastly, trichomes cover the buds, making them difficult to break apart without a grinder.
A pungent aroma is also associated with Ether. Ether’s flowers are scented with fruity berries when properly cured. It has a sweet and tangy aroma in the background as well, probably passed down by Chemdawg. When these flowers are ground, they give off notes of pine that are inherited from the parent strain Alien Tech. Some caution may be in order for smokers who wish to maintain discretion and get this Runtz strain since these buds are very pungent.
It’s Ether’s harsh undertone that dominates the palate. The peppery, earthy taste is enhanced by the sour chemical taste. On exhalation, it leaves a taste of diesel that lingers for hours after taking the last puff. This isn’t my favorite tasting Runtz strain but it gets the job done.
A cerebral rush of euphoria and lifted energy comes on almost immediately with the Ether high. After experiencing this effect, you will feel hazy and dazed but blissfully happy. Within moments, this feeling will change to Stoney, causing random thoughts, and leaving you feeling heavy. After a while, Ether’s high becomes hazy and dreamy. Work may be challenging and concentration difficult. The feeling of heaviness will spread throughout the rest of your body, leaving you completely relaxed and sleepy. Due to the powerful effects of Ether and its high THC content, it is ideal with help for a number of conditions. Anxiety, stress, and depression can be temporarily alleviated in this Runtz strain thanks to its relaxing energy. My physical pain may also felt relieved by it. This Runtz strain can even relieve insomnia by allowing deep and restorative sleep.
The seeds of Ether are not sold online, which is a problem for home gardeners. If you wish to cultivate this Runtz strain you must get clippings from mature plants that can be grown as “clones”. Ether grows like a typical Indica but with the height of a Sativa. The buds are dense and compact, and the plant is short. Low temperatures cause broad leaves to turn a deep purple shade. The stalks of the plant, however, as well as its branches, are sturdy. This makes it a great strain for beginners. This Runtz weed has a natural preference for colder climates. The hardy structure of this plant appeals to many outdoor growers in the northern hemisphere. It takes ether between 7 and 9 weeks for Ether to flower indoors. This plant yields between 10 to 12 ounces of buds once it is ready for harvest. In addition to training the plant, growers can increase yields considerably. For the Ether plant to bloom outside, it takes roughly 7 to 9 weeks. Harvested buds usually weigh at least 12 ounces when grown outdoors.
