What Is Purple Gas Strain?
This Purple Gas HHC flower is an HHC version of the well-known Purple Gas cannabis strain. It’s a hybrid that leans indica and is known for its considerable potency, as well as its impressively purple appearance.
The parent strains that were combined to create Purple Gas are BaOx, a renowned sativa-dominant Hindu Kush bud, and Therapy, a potent indica that earned its name from its relaxing effects.
The BaOx parent strain is where Purple Gas gets its notable violet appearance. This is thanks to the anthocyanin pigments it contains.
These pigments are responsible for a wide variety of deep reds, blues, and purples that can be found in everything from berries and cherries to grapes and pomegranates and much more. They’re also believed to offer a few different health benefits.
Aromas and Flavors
There are a number of fantastic aromas and flavors to enjoy in this Purple Gas HHC flower, thanks to various terpenes. Break open a bud, and your first impression will be that it has the essence of a pine tree.
Light some up, and you’ll be treated to an array of fantastic flavors beyond that initial piney scent. It has a fruity, earthy sweetness to it that’s rounded out with a slight hint of spice and black pepper.
We mentioned that this strain is known for its potency. It certainly has a kick to it, and a unique one at that.
You can expect to feel super relaxed and ready to chill all night off just a few hits thanks to the indica genetics, but you’ll also feel a burst of euphoria and an uplifted mood thanks to the sativa side of the strain. It’s the perfect HHC flower for a chill evening with friends and food.
Purple Gas HHC flower is also reported to offer a number of therapeutic effects. It can help to improve mood, increase relaxation, reduce discomfort, and much more.
What Type of Strain Is It?
For the uninitiated, it’s important to note that not all HHC flower strains offer the same effects. What you’re going to get from your HHC experience will depend heavily on the type of flower you’re dealing with.
There are two distinct types of strains – sativa and indica. Sativa is known for a more creative, energetic, cerebral high, while indica is known for a more relaxing, sedative, body high. Then, some hybrids blend features of the two to offer their own unique psychoactive experience.
Purple Gas HHC flower is an indica-dominant hybrid. What that means is that it contains genetics from both an indica and a sativa strain, but the psychoactive features lean more towards the indica side. What you get is a feeling of euphoric relaxation and stimulated creativity.
How Is HHC Flower Infused?
HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid that can be found in the stems, seeds, and pollen of both the hemp and cannabis plants. It’s a hydrogenated version of the more well-known Delta-9 THC, which is the chemical compound in cannabis that gets you high. This means that, yes, HHC will also get you high.
Since HHC is only present in trace amounts in hemp and cannabis, it’s difficult to extract enough of the cannabinoid to enjoy its psychoactive effects. For this reason, HHC has to be synthesized in a lab through hydrogenation, which is the process of adding extra hydrogen molecules to a compound.
In the case of HHC, this hydrogenation gives it properties that distinguish it from THC but not enough to change it entirely.
To create HHC flower, an HHC extract must first be created. Then, a high-quality hemp version of a popular cannabis strain is used as a base to infuse with the HHC extract. After that, the buds are rolled in a cannabinoid-rich kief. Finally, extra terpenes are added in order to give the flower a burst of familiar cannabis flavors.
The Difference Between HHC and THC
We mentioned how the hydrogenation process distinguishes HHC from THC, and those distinctions are not just limited to the two compounds’ structures.
The biggest difference between the two cannabinoid cousins is that the HHC molecule is more stable than that of THC, which means that HHC is significantly longer lasting and less susceptible to degradation.
Another difference between HHC and THC is the way in which the two compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system. The change in structure causes HHC to bond with the body’s endocannabinoid receptors differently, resulting in a slightly less potent psychoactive experience.
While HHC is considered to be a bit stronger than Delta-8 THC, the Delta-9 THC found in cannabis is considered about 20% stronger.
HHC and Drug Tests
If you do a little digging into all that is known about the HHC cannabinoid, you’re likely to find some information regarding its potential to go undetected on a drug test.
This may sound enticing, but you should know that the evidence behind this is strictly anecdotal, and therefore, you’re taking a considerable risk in smoking HHC flower when expecting to be drug tested in the near future.
While there may be some validity to these claims, your best bet is to avoid the cannabinoid before being tested.
