How to Spot Fake or Poorly Made HHC Disposables
HHC disposable vapes are becoming a huge submarket within the hemp industry, and why wouldn’t they? HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) is the analog of delta 9 THC found in the pollen and seeds of the hemp plant, offering virtually identical effects in terms of both benefits and psychoactive properties. And, it’s totally legal under federal law, to boot.
Enjoying the delightful effects of HHC in disposable vape form comes with additional advantages. Disposables offer a super convenient, low-maintenance way to treat yourself to a blissful ‘high’ throughout the day, acting as all-in-one vape kits that require no preparation or adjustments at any time – just the occasional battery recharge. Plus, they come in loads of tempting strains – very awesome indeed.
Now, that doesn’t mean that every HHC disposable vape is going to give you the quality levels you’re looking for. Let’s take a look at what you can do to avoid fake or poorly made HHC disposables that, unfortunately, do pop up on occasion.
What’s the Deal with Fake/Low-Quality HHC Disposable Vape Pens?
We all want to maintain the belief that the HHC disposables on the market are all made with customers’ best interests in mind. But, sometimes, that just isn’t the case. We might underestimate just what goes into making a high-quality and effective formula, and that explains why so many manufacturers can fall short, either intentionally or unintentionally.
Now, there’s a difference between a low-quality HHC disposable, and one that’s altogether fake. Fake products can mean:
- Products made by illegitimate manufacturers that copy the packaging of an HHC vape product made by a trusted brand – basically, a counterfeit product.
- Products that claim to be HHC, but don’t actually contain HHC.
- Products that don’t live up to what’s being advertised – such as containing far less HHC than what’s said on the label.
Meanwhile, low-quality products can mean:
- Products made with unwanted/harmful additives.
- Products that are ineffective because they were made using low-quality manufacturing methods (exposure to temperatures so high that the terpenes are destroyed, products made with poorly cultivated industrial hemp, etc.).
How to Single Out Disappointing HHC Disposables
The good news is that there are some reliable ways to know you’re getting a high-quality and legit HHC disposable.
Third-Party Lab Reports
Before anything else, you should always take a gander at those third-party lab reports, which should be provided by every manufacturer through their website, or a scannable QR code on the product label – no exceptions. Hemp brands are required to have their products third-party-tested, which means sending each batch of a product to a state-licensed laboratory, where it undergoes extensive testing for purity, potency, safety, and legal compliance, all while providing a breakdown of every detectable cannabinoid and terpene present in the vape oil formula. These lab reports are objective and unbiased, and they’re a great way to verify for yourself that what you’re getting is the real deal.
It goes without saying that if a company’s website is full of bad reviews left by customers, then that’s a pretty big red flag. It’s also good to get into the habit of seeking out reviews for a company off of their website – Reddit and YouTube are two great resources, where you’ll find people who try out certain hemp products and publish their opinions – as these sources are more likely to be unbiased.
Naturally, the vendor itself can tell you a lot about what to expect from the products that they carry. We really discourage you from buying HHC disposables at a gas station or convenience store, as these types of vendors just aren’t known for carrying the best products out there. Sure, they carry the trendiest hemp products on the market, but often from cheaper companies, with no willingness to discern between fakes and legit formulas.
The best way to go is through a reputable brand’s website, directly. This way, there’s no risk of a counterfeit product, and you know that you’re buying a product that can be trusted since it’s being sold by a manufacturer that is already known for their high standards of quality.
If you’re buying an HHC vape in person, look over the label thoroughly. If the phrasing on the label seems to be leaving out critical info like the name of the strain or the ingredients, that’s a red flag. And, if there are spelling or grammar errors on the label, that’s not necessarily a good sign, either.
Poor Company Transparency
Companies should really go out of their way to provide as much info about their practices as possible on their website, for the sake of being transparent. They should consistently give customers information about the strains they use, how they source their hemp, the ingredients they use, their extraction methods, etc. If that info is lacking, that can mean that the company is trying to hide something.
A Lack of Communication
Never trust a brand that has no way of contacting them through customer service. If you have a hard time contacting a brand, that can mean that they don’t want to be held accountable should you be dissatisfied with their product in any way.
