Hab SC-GA2 Comic1

Hab being inserted into an injector

Hab is a popular and widespread recreational terran drug.[1] It is brown in color.[2]

A hab addict is often called a "habhead".[1]


Hab is applied by small pads and appears to cause similar affects as marijuana, albeit with added hallucinations and potential for addiction. Withdrawal symptoms are severe and result in tightening muscles and nervous twitching.[1] The victim also suffers from a lack of focus and sleeping problems.[2]

Detoxification occurs within twenty-four hours and may be lethal. Caffeine, such as found in coffee, may make the process more bearable.[1]

When combined with turk, it causes hallucinations and severe health problems.[2]


Korhal was a source of large quantities of hab prior to its destruction. It is (or was) grown on Halcyon,[1] and was readily available (legally) on Nidhogg.[2] The Terran Dominion heavily regulates it, but it can still be purchased from suppliers based on Canis.[2]
