Gone are the days when marijuana was the only THC source available, as the world is finally recognizing the merits of cannabinoid-infused products. Thanks to the innovations of modern science, new cannabinoids are being discovered (and created), leading to a fascinating world that offers a way to relax and soothe your weary mind. In today’s cannabinoid product review, I’ll be reviewing a disposable vape device called Blue Dream, a THC-O product from Herban Bud.
THC-O is actually a synthetic cannabinoid that is considered to be stronger than both Delta-8 THC and traditional Delta-9 THC from marijuana. I reviewed a Delta-8 THC vape cartridge from Herban Bud in one of our previous reviews and I was excited to see how their THC-O disposable cartridge performs. Before I get to the actual product review, I’d like to take a moment to briefly review the Herban Bud brand. Even if you’ve never heard of the Herban Bud brand, you’ll surely remember their name after this full-blown product review!

Herban Bud Overview
When it comes to premium hemp products, Herban Bud offers a sprawling selection of cannabinoid-infused products. The brand’s selection of THC-O products is limited to a single disposable device, but is available in six different strains of sativa, indica, and hybrid options. The disposable is sold at an attractive $49.99 price point and contains a full gram of THC-O distillate. Unlike other brands who cut their products with Delta-8 THC and CBD, the disposable contains two ingredients: pure THC-O and cannabis-derived terpenes. The THC-O strains are listed according to effects, making it easy for users to select the desired strain and effects.
Herban Bud emphasizes the purity of their products by subjecting them to independent third-party lab testing. The results of these tests are published on the product page, directly beneath the word Description. Since THC-O is somewhat of a new type of cannabinoid (albeit a synthetic one), there aren’t any customer reviews listed on the sites. Herban Bud describes some of the possible side effects of their THC-O, expected timeframe of the high, and how much more intense it is than marijuana or Delta-8 THC. In the following section, I’ll compare Herban Bud’s description with my own experiences and see how the two match up.
THC-O 1000mg Disposable Blue Dream Sativa Dominant THC-O Product Review
Herban Bud’s THC-O disposable devices are available in six different strains, but the one I’ll be reviewing today is a sativa-dominant hybrid called Blue Dream. The disposable came in a slim paper box with a small plastic window in the front that allowed me to see the black plastic disposable within. I opened the flap and pulled out a very lightweight cartridge that had a thin rubber cap on top of the mouthpiece. I removed the rubber cap and held the device to my nose, where I detected a light and sweet scent that made me extremely curious to take my first hit.
Then I noticed that there was a power button on the front of the device and a micro-USB port on the left side of the device. I realized that even though the device was disposable, it needed to be charged before use. I grabbed a micro-USB cord and plugged it in to charge. A bright red LED light indicated that the device was charging, and I took a few minutes to examine the device. There was a very small window on the device that showed the oil within, which was thick and did not move despite my vigorous shaking or tilting.
After about ten minutes I noticed the red light had turned off. I unplugged the microUSB and hit the power button. A bright green LED light now flashed, and it took a few rapid presses of the power button to turn the device on. I held the power button while taking a light inhale, and was delighted to discover that the pull was gentle and quite smooth. I did not feel any urge to cough and no tightening sensation in my lungs. The vapor itself was lightly sweet, almost like there was a hint of stevia sweetener in the oil. There was a very light piney flavor as well, but not overpowering or unbearable. I enjoyed taking two decent lung pulls and was tempted to take a third, but decided to wait a few minutes to ensure I didn’t take too much in a single dose.
I noticed a faint burning sensation in the back of my throat about three minutes after the second pull. I took a drink of water to quell the slight discomfort, and began to find ways to occupy myself until the high kicked in. I felt something after about 10 minutes. I noticed my vision was a little blurry and noticed a delicious tingling sensation in my hands, fat, arms, and face. It wasn’t as intense as the tingling I’ve experienced under a Delta-8 THC high, and I felt much more clear-headed as well. The high intensified gradually for the next 10 minutes, but it was smooth and comfortable. I noticed my mouth was slightly dry and my tongue clung to the roof of my mouth. My eyelids grew heavier and my face felt numb. I felt relaxed and slightly drowsy. I started to experience waves of warm euphoria along with a heightened sense of touch and taste.
I was very pleased to notice that while the high did feel more intense than a traditional Delta-8 THC high, I did not feel overwhelmed, overly anxious, or experience any spike in paranoia. The high lasted for several hours and I eventually went to sleep, where I slept soundly through the night and awoke feeling refreshed with no “hangover high” from the previous night. I highly recommend this lightweight and rechargeable disposable THC-O cartridge to anyone looking for a rich euphoric high that is perfect for unwinding at the end of a long day.
Final Thoughts on the Herban Bud THC-O Disposable Vape
Herban Bud may not have a lot of product variety when it comes to THC-O, but this lightweight and rechargeable disposable was truly a delight to use. I was surprised to see that it had to be charged prior to use, but was happy that it charged quickly. The Blue Dream had a deliciously sweet and light flavor that wasn’t overpowering and was smooth with each hit. I was very pleased that I didn’t feel the overwhelming need to cough after taking a hit, as that can be a deterrent for even the most experienced vapers and smokers. The high began gradually but kicked in fully after 20 minutes and lasted for several hours. I’ve read that some users experienced a high for nearly eight hours, so make sure you enjoy this particular cannabinoid when you have several hours to spare!
It’s important to understand that not everyone will experience the same effects, and that the high will vary based on a number of factors. Weight, age, metabolism, gender, previous exposure to THC, and many other factors play a major role in the intensity and effects of a THC-O high (or any high for that matter). It is crucial that you start off slowly with your dosages until you can accurately gauge how your body will react. Consuming more than the recommended dose (usually listed by the manufacturer) can result in extreme drowsiness and can even instill paranoia and anxiety. You should not attempt to operate a vehicle or other machinery while under the influence of a THC-O high, and always enjoy your high in a safe and calm environment.
In my next product review, I’ll be reviewing yet another unique product from Herban Bud, this time their Gorilla Glue HHC disposable cartridge. HHC is another unique cannabinoid that has recently gained quite a following from those who have tried it, and I’m excited to see how it compares against Herban Bud’s THC-O disposable and Delta-8 THC cartridge. Check back soon to see this and other fantastic product reviews of cannabinoid-infused products from renowned brands across the industry. I look forward to seeing you there!
