Terpenes from the Kush descendant Banana Kush been blended with HHC in this pleasant fruity offering from Bearly Legal. This vape cartridge works with 510-threaded batteries and utilizes a micro-mesh ceramic coil and contains a lead-free copper center rod post. The tank contains approximately 1ml total with 95% oil and 5% terpenes. Manufactured in the USA, the HHC oil is hemp-derived and distilled with no VG, PG, PEG, MCT, or any other cutting agent.
Banana Kush is originally bred from a cross of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze and is known for its mellow buzz that can help some be a little more talkative or creative. The terpenes added here give the HHC oil a tropical aroma and taste that is slightly pungent and reminiscent of Bananas. While the BK strain contains an array of terpenes, the three dominant in the strain are limonene, valencene, and beta-caryophyllene. Banana Kush is one of few strains that contains a significant amount of valencene, a terpene who name is derived from Valencia oranges where it is found in abundance. A larger terpene, like beta-caryophyllene valencene has been found in research to contain anti-inflammatory properties.
Terpenes aside, although HHC has been noted by consumers to be less powerful than D9 THC, it still supplies the mental shift and euphoria, but without the drawbacks of paranoia and extreme dry mouth that sometimes follows after D9 use. To learn more about the science behind HHC, keep reading!
What is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinal or HHC is one of several hundred known cannabinoids found naturally occurring in hemp plants. It is only found in trace concentrations and has not been isolated in enough quantities for consumption until now.
There are ten types of HHC that are known and have shown to have slight variations from each other. HHC is very similar to THC, but its chemical structure does not consist of any double bonds. It is the opposite of cannabinol (CBN), which begins to form as THC breaks down. When THC breaks down, it will gain additional double-bonds and form CBN.
With HHC, all the double-bonds have broken and been replaced with hydrogen. This process is referred to as hydrogenation. The difference between HHC and THC is quite subtle, but it still changes the structure of the molecule, as well as how it binds to the Endocannabinoid receptors and pain receptors in the human body.
Due to the changes in the structure of the molecule, HHC tends to be much more stable. This stability enables HHC to have a longer shelf life before losing its potency like other forms of THC.
HHC offers similar effects and potency as THC. It has been said that HHC is more potent than Delta 8-THC, but slightly less potent than Delta 9-THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume HHC.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of HHC will vary by dose and effects will also vary for users. Therefore, do not operate a vehicle after consuming HHC products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
