Spritzer is an evenly balanced hybrid first introduced by Cannarado Genetics through a combination of the Runtz strain with a crossing of Grape Pie and Miracle Alien Cookies (MAC).
Despite the lightweight sounding name, this breed is known for being a heavy hitter, with potent effects that are described as particularly helpful for alleviating headaches and nausea, as well as relief of stress.
The contents of this notably low-key bag of goods were grown indoors with love by the fine family of connoisseurs at Oakland-based aesthetic brand Mary Mary, who seem to be taking great pride in their continued mission of putting the art back into artisan cannabis. I’m always intrigued to discover new brands, so I was excited to try this one out and see what kind of quality they actually had to offer.

I honestly fell in love with this strain’s scent when I first opened the bag. There was a huge presence of the sweet candy-like grape influence with the tiniest hint of a perfume edge, accompanied by a sparkling floral and herbal bouquet carrying notes of pine, eucalyptus, tart berries, and a dash of pepper. Those elements were all bouncing around over a friendly but forceful chemical and citrus undertone that left the end result of this profile exceptionally bright, fruity, and quite gassy. Based solely on this dance party of high-spirited odors, I would definitely make it a double if I were ordering this again.
The bag was full of small buds mixed with split nugs off larger buds, which basically had the appearance of perky little broccoli chunks, outfitted in pale shades of lime and sage that blended with lively patches of forest green and a few sparse clumps of reddish-purple. The pieces were fluffy and fresh when broken apart and held even more of the loud, zesty odor on the inside, leaving behind a thick dusting of powder and sticky resin on the fingers after being ground up.
Compared to the smell, this flavor profile was a lot less fruity and a lot more gassy, but still maintained a remarkably bright and pleasant frame. There was a definite sweetness from the grape and berry tones, and a bit more of an earthiness around the herbal touches, but those components were slightly overshadowed by a vibrant dose of the ammonia-like chemical and citrus bite. In the scent department, there was an undeniable amount of the Runtz and Grape Pie presence, but the taste is where the MAC influence jumped out and really shined through on this hybrid.
The batch number was labelled as 1A406030001CC2B000001441, packaged on May 10, 2022, with 30.33% THC content. Smoking on the Spritzer was an altogether uplifting experience, in my opinion leaning further towards a sativa-type high with minor indica tendencies. The cerebral hit came in strong, with an energetic and mood-lifting jump-off, eventually leading into a more focused, creative buzz that was pretty well-sustained without requiring constant reloads of the bowl. The effects weren’t too overpowering, but still had a vigorous kick and kept my mind absorbed in abstract thought for the better part of the afternoon, all of which seemed to make this strain a rather stony but fairly practical choice for daytime sessions.
