In a time where new cannabinoids are flooding the marketplace, one cannabinoid in particular has managed to become one of the most popular of them all: HHC. Short for hexahydrocannabinol, HHC is available in gummies, tinctures, vape carts, but more rarely, pre-rolls. In today’s review, I’ll be testing the Looper HHC Pre-roll by Looperverse. Pre-rolls fall into the more advanced-user category, but with a little bit of practice and patience, you’ll be flying high in no time! To kick things off, I’d like to explore the Looperverse brand and all they have to offer before jumping into the full-blown review. Let’s get started!

The Looperverse Brand
The Looperverse brand was frustratingly difficult to find on a simple web browser search. Many sites carry the Looperverse brand but the actual Looperverse website seems to be buried to the point where it cannot be easily found. I ended up scanning the QR code on the little plastic tube that housed the pre-roll; only then was I redirected to the official Looperverse website. Once I was actually on the website, I was delighted with the graffiti-style graphics and the playfulness of the homepage. I clicked on the “Shop Now” button, eager to see what other products the brand offered. Imagine my surprise (and confusion) when I was redirected to Dimo Hemp, another brand’s homepage! Don’t get me wrong, Dimo Hemp is a powerhouse brand that I’ve had the exquisite pleasure of trying before and absolutely loved all their products. But to be redirected to the Dimo Hemp brand was something I simply did not expect.
Upon further inspection of the Dimo Hemp site, I noticed there was a tab on the top labeled “Shop Looper.” It seems as though Looper is a sub-brand of Dimo Hemp that offers some of the newer cannabinoids, such as HHC, HHC-O, THC-O, and something called Melted Series where several cannabinoids are blended (aka “melted”) together. To further add to the confusion, I noticed that the Looperverse homepage had a tab labeled “Lab Results.” I clicked on it and a new tab opened to display a DropBox list of the Looper products listed on the Dimo Hemp website. It was then that the lightbulb moment happened. The Looperverse was a dummy site for Dimo’s new lineup, a placeholder if you will.
Armed with that knowledge, I began to explore the Looper brand on the Dimo Hemp site and quickly found the HHC preroll section. Since the pre-roll packaging had the word “Runtz” displayed on the top of the plastic tube, I clicked on the corresponding product page and was delighted to finally find the product I’d be reviewing: the Looper HHC Pre-Rolls: Runtz! The pre-rolls are sold for $34.99 and come in a glass jar that contains seven pre-rolls. Each pre-roll contains 0.5 grams of HHC for a total of 3.5 grams per jar. Since I’d tried nearly the entire Dimo Hemp catalog about a year ago, I was very curious to see how the new Looper lineup compared. Keep reading to see my experience with my first-ever Looper HHC pre-roll product!
Looper HHC Pre-Rolls: Runtz Product Review
I received a sample size of the Looper Runtz pre-rolls in a small plastic tube. The instructions directed me to squeeze the sides until the lip popped up. I gently tipped the tube upside down to allow the pre-roll to slide out and was surprised to see it was much smaller than other pre-rolls I’ve reviewed, almost like a miniature size. About two-thirds of the pre-roll was covered in CBD kief and gave off a very soothing scent of hemp. I noted that the rolling papers were from a brand called OCB and that the pre-roll was labeled as being a hybrid strain. The product description stated the taste and expected effects, but I waited until after smoking it to see if these details were accurate. I grabbed my lighter and stepped outside to avoid filling the room with acrid smoke.
The pre-roll lit easily and did not extinguish even in a light breeze. Since the brand of rolling paper was OCB instead of the popular Raw papers, I did not experience any gummy sensation on my lips and my lips did not stick together while I smoked. The flavor was very smooth and I tasted a rich flavor of hemp. The pre-roll ashed easily and took about six minutes to smoke fully. During that time, I noticed there was a slight burning in the back of my throat and experienced a slight coughing fit after taking my initial hit and once when the pre-roll was about half done. I have my suspicions that I coughed because my throat was dry and I swallowed excess saliva while taking my hit, but that could just be a coincidence.
The High: Start Time & Effects
I felt the effects kick in about five minutes after finishing the pre-roll. The effects were more noticeable than other pre-rolls I’ve tried, which was a huge plus. I felt a sense of energy wash over me and felt motivated to do things. I experienced an enhanced sense of focus and creativity that made me notice my surroundings more. I was highly amused by ordinary things, such as funny words or mental imagery. I felt uplifted and euphoric, which was wonderfully refreshing after a long day. I was somewhat surprised that I didn’t feel a slowed sense of time, which is a side effect I tend to experience, but this in no way detracted from the high.
I noticed an enhanced sense of touch and taste, which made the snacks I munched on extremely enjoyable. I felt the high taper off after about 90 minutes, but I realize this may vary based on tolerance levels and other factors. Overall, I was honored to review the Looper Runtz HHC Pre-Roll and was impressed with the overall experience. My only complaint would be that it was very small. I would have preferred a larger pre-roll that could last longer than the few minutes it took to smoke it. I also caution you to keep some water handy, as you may experience coughing fits and will need something to soothe your dry throat. There are several methods of using inhalables, such as taking quick pulls, slowly letting out the smoke, avoid taking deep lung hits, and others. It will take a bit of trial and error even for the most experienced smokers, but ultimately you’ll figure out the method that works best for you.
Aside from the initial confusion of the Looperverse website, I was absolutely delighted to try and review Looper’s Runtz HHC Pre-Roll. Knowing that Dimo Hemp was the parent brand only increased my enjoyment of the pre-roll and I highly encourage you to try it for yourself. The scent of the smoke was soothing, the flavor was rich and smooth, and I appreciated that I did not have to keep relighting the pre-roll. Despite the small size of the pre-roll, the effects were powerful and fast-acting. From start to finish, the Looper HHC Pre-Roll Runtz was a fantastic product that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was truly sorry that I couldn’t enjoy it longer, but the effects probably would have been overpowering if the pre-roll had been larger. Pre-rolls can be a tricky product to create, let alone perfect, but the Looper Runtz HHC pre-roll was as close to perfection as you can get. I look forward to trying more from the freshly minted Looper brand from Dimo Hemp in the near future!
