What is JWH-018 ?

What are Synthetic Cannabinoids? Herbal blends, which are highly popular alternatives to illegal substances, are made of natural botanicals and often contain synthetic cannabinoids.  When comparing marijuana with an herbal blend product, one will find that cannabis contains THC, which is a natural cannabinoid, while the legal counterpart does not. Because herbal blends contain synthetic cannabinoids, they are legal in various states in the US as well as other countries. Synthetic cannabinoids are not the same active compound as natural THC and do not have the same chemical structure.  Natural THC actually breaks down in a different way compared to synthetic cannabinoids.  The most common of these synthetic cannabinoids are cannabicyclohexanol, JWH-018, JWH-073, and HU-210. JWH-018 is considered to be the most popular one, which is used in the vast majority of legal herbal blends being sold on the market in the United States, Europe and Canada.  Although synthetic cannabinoids are considered legal in various locations, a number of states in the US and countries across the globe are beginning to ban or regulate the sale, possession and consumption of herbal blends. The Discovery of JWH-018 JWH-018 is an analogue of synthetic cannabinoids and was founded by John W. Huffman, ... Read More »

Pulse Incense

Pulsewatermark-300x283

Pulse Smoking blend Pulse Herbal Incense is a popular smoking blend indeed, but because of its popularity, it is important to get the right stuff.  Plenty of manufacturers out there market their blends as Pulse when they are actually something else. Some people like to compare Pulse to Jah Rush, which is another herbal blend.  Pulse is a very sweet and aromatic herbal incense, but every so often you get a package that does not smell completely natural.  With that said, the blend is primarily made of natural ingredients including: Bay Bean, Damiana, Stevia Leaf, Lemon Grass, Tribulus Terrestris, Indian Pennyworth, Rose, Siberian Motherwort, Marsh Mallow, Clove, Hops, and other aromatic essence. For legal smoking blend enthusiasts, Pulse is a potpurri of a bunch of sweet smelling herbs that work together to provide a wonderful experience for the user.  Once the package is opened, there you will have a handful of crushed herbs that are very dry and quite powder-like in texture. If you’re lucky, you may get a package that does not contain stems and small twigs.  The product is made for burning as incense, but for smoking, you may have to remove these stems.  All in all, Pulse ...

JHW Revealed

Overview of JWH, WIN and CP Chemical Compounds Overview of JWH Family The JWH family of chemicals is the most common type of synthetic cannabinoids found in herbal blends that are marketed as smoking products.  These herbal blends can be found in retail shops as well as online stores.  Although JWH has been legal for several years, there is currently a control on JWH and products that contain any of the chemicals in the JWH family. It is imperative to note that research on JWH compounds is very limited, however some of the compounds have more information than others.  These synthetic cannabinoids were first developed in the early 1990s by an organic chemist named John W. Huffman who discovered and developed the compounds at Clemson University. The prefix, JWH, indicates the indole family of synthetic cannabinoids.  These include the aminoalkylindole and the napthoylindole families.  When John W. Huffman first developed these compounds, the aim was to produce a substance that would target certain receptors in the body called the endocannabinoid receptors.  The body has two receptors known as the CB1 and CB2 receptors.  JWH chemicals are either agonists of one or both of these receptors.  Below is an overview of ...
