Almost every cannabis patient looks for a reliable and potent concentrate. The problem is, there are so many companies producing them it’s hard to figure out which are worth it. Look no further as Heavy Hitters creates solvent and additive free cannabis concentrates focused on getting you good and medicated without emptying your wallet.
Born in Los Angeles, Heavy Hitters is a concentrates company known for producing a variety of strain-specific, super potent products as an alternative to smoking. They even claim theirs produce “the highest potency THC concentrates on the market.”
You’ll notice the brand appears similar in style and branding to their counterpart, Brass Knuckles. That’s because BK’s two founders split off; one remained there while the other left to start Heavy Hitters.
Many concentrates are full of harmful additives or lack the necessary potency to provide relief. But with Heavy Hitters, you get clean and potent carts, disposable vape pens, and dabbers tested by three of California’s leading labs: SC, Steep Hill, and CW Analytical.
This SoCal brand continually raises the bar. Starting with high quality, batch-tested cannabis, Heavy Hitters uses a clean CO2 extraction method that protects their concentrates from harmful solvents. And don’t worry about gross extra bits; they keep them additive-free so you can taste the full, natural flavors of each strain.
In addition to having some of the highest THC levels available, all products are strain-specific, so you have more control over your medicine and the effects you prefer.
These include indicas Blueberry, Bubba Kush, Diablo OG, Grape Ape, Malibu OG, Northern Lights, and Pink Kush; sativas Blue Dream, Jack Herer, Orange Kush, Sour Diesel, Strawberry Cough, and Tangie; and hybrids 710 Connoisseur, Candy Apple, Girl Scout Cookie, Gorilla Glue, OG Kush, Pineapple Express, Skywalker OG, Strawnanna, and The Truth.
Tired of spending your hard-earned money on vape cartridges, only to be disappointed by the lack of potency? Not with Heavy Hitters. These solventless, cold-filtered CO2 distillate cartridges fit with any standard 510 threaded, four volt battery pen (higher voltage will burn and ruin the coil). The best part? They test at up to 90% THC, an absolute bargain for $50 per gram.
One distinguishing factor is that they’re free of oil thinners. For purity, that’s great news; just be aware that you may need to “prep” the cartridge by taking a couple small hits to heat the oil. However, we’ve heard rumors of patients finding traces of contaminants in these carts. We can’t confirm this without lab-testing ourselves, but it’s something to approach with caution.
As noted, these cartridges are size and strain-specific to customize your experience. If you like to buy in bulk, Heavy Hitters makes a 2.2 gram cartridge as well–one of the largest you’ll find. Apparently you can get more than 300 hits for around $100.
Disposable Vape Pens
Although some disposable vape pens offer 200 hits, the quality is so diluted it takes four or five just to begin feeling the effects.
Heavy Hitters doesn’t take shortcuts. These black throwaway pens are just as potent as their standard vape cartridges, only with the added convenience of never having to charge or carry batteries. You’ll start feeling the effects with one hit. Each pen costs around $20 and comes with .3 grams that’ll provide 50-75 hits.
These make it easy to precisely dose without making a mess, wasting or needing extra tools. The glass dabbers are filled with cold filtered CO2 distillate that packs serious punch.
Just push on the top of the medical-grade syringe until there’s enough clear honey-colored concentrate for your hit. Don’t worry about the glass breaking. It’s medical-grade and can withstand the heat of your dab rig, so apply the concentrate directly to the dabber! But it’s not just for dabbing; add a bit to your joint, bowl or blunt for extra kick.
Every Heavy Hitters glass dabber has 1 gram of high quality distillate that sells for $60.

“Five star products for sure. The strains taste amazing and it’s a cart that actually gets you medicated. This is a product you know what you’re getting…fired, nothing but fire. Well done to the team!!!” –Justin F.
“I ordered two of these cartridges a few weeks ago and they were great. Unlike a lot of other brands I’ve tried, this cart came completely full which made me feel like I was getting the most bang for my buck. The flavor was really nice and I felt like it even smelled less strongly than other brands I’ve used before. My sister couldn’t tell I was smoking even when I was right behind her. It hit very well and never clogged up for me!” –Liz M.
“[The Malibu OG cartridge] has a nice sedating effect and calming sensation overall. It starts in the head then creeps slowly into the rest of your body. And despite being an indica, the high isn’t impairing; I can still function and concentrate.” –Ian R.
