Are HHC Vape Cartridges Healthier Than Other Types of Vapes?

0 115

Every day, the world of cannabis and hemp is getting stranger and more confusing. Manufacturers are constantly playing hide-and-seek with lawmakers to try and produce new and exciting products derived from hemp while staying within the legal boundaries of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which legalizes hemp and hemp-derived hemp products.

Over the last couple of years, the result has been an array of odd, never-before-heard-of products such as delta-8 THC, delta-10 THC, THC-O, and most recently, HHC. Oddly enough, these products produce a high similar to regular cannabis. But since they come from hemp, they’re technically legal. This article discusses one of the most recent forms of these “hemp creations” – hexahydrocannabinol, aka HHC.

What Are HHC Vape Carts?

HHC vape carts are the most popular form of hemp-derived hexahydrocannabinol. This is essentially a man-made compound that is produced by hydrogenating (adding hydrogen molecules) hemp-derived THC. The result is a mildly psychoactive compound that, according to many users, has a potency of about half that of standard delta-9 THC.

Users are preferring HHC vape carts over other types of products, mostly due to their fast-acting effects. There aren’t many brands that are offering HHC vape carts for sale yet, but by far the most popular is the HHC vape carts from PureKana – a reputable U.S. brand that has been around for nearly a decade.

It’s pretty wild to think that anyone in the U.S. these days can go online and buy a product that gets them high (just like marijuana), but that’s pretty much what is happening with products like these hemp-derived HHC vape carts. Furthermore, the vape cartridges come in several different flavor profiles, and brands like PureKana are even infusing them with custom terpene profiles to make them taste and smell just like classic strains of cannabis.

Will They Get You High?

As we’ve already discussed, yes – users can expect HHC vape carts to produce a high. In most instances, however, it seems that the high is not nearly as potent as a ‘standard’ high from marijuana. While the physiological reasoning for it is not yet clear, HHC vape carts produce a subtle, enjoyable high that many have described as being about half as potent as marijuana. Most people claim to feel totally in control after taking a few hits from an HHC vape pen, without having to deal with the racing heartbeat and feelings of anxiety or paranoia that sometimes come along with a potent marijuana high.

Do We Know How Healthy HHC Vape Carts Are?

HHC Vape

To answer as bluntly as possible, no – we really don’t know the health effects (or lack thereof) of HHC vape pens. Few people even know how these products are made, let alone have any idea of their short or long-term health effects. The good news is, HHC vape carts are made from hemp, and we know (thanks to the World Health Organization) that hemp and hemp derivatives are by and large safe for human consumption, even at large volumes.

The problem, however, is not with the consumption of hemp or even hemp derivatives, but with the lack of knowledge as to how some of these companies are making HHC vape pens. If you purchase from a trusted, reputable brand like PureKana, you can rest relatively easily that the HHC vape cart you’re using is safe and well-made. For other brands, however, you’ll want to tread cautiously as there’s really no telling how they make their HHC vape carts, or whether they really are even derived from hemp.

Final Thoughts

All things considered, there is no evidence or no reason to believe that HHC vape carts are “healthier” than other types of vapes. Are they healthier than something like tobacco cigarettes? Probably. But HHC vape carts are an incredibly new type of hemp product, and there is simply no data yet on how healthy – or unhealthy – they are for human use.

The only thing we do know about HHC vape carts is that customers are loving the effects they produce. If you’re using a good, high-quality HHC vape cartridge, you can expect an immensely relaxing experience that produces subtle psychoactive effects while leaving you in full control of your mind, body, and actions. It’s possible that hemp-derived “alternative cannabinoids” are going to be the future of the cannabis industry, and if HHC vape carts are of any indication, it’s possible we’re already well on our way there.
