What is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol or HHC is one of several hundred known cannabinoids found naturally occurring in hemp plants. It is only found in trace concentrations and has not been isolated in enough quantities for consumption until now.
There are ten types of HHC that are known and have shown to have slight variations from each other. HHC is very similar to THC, but its chemical structure does not consist of any double bonds. It is the opposite of cannabinol (CBN), which begins to form as THC breaks down. When THC breaks down, it will gain additional double-bonds and form CBN.
With HHC, all the double-bonds have broken and been replaced with hydrogen. This process is referred to as hydrogenation. The difference between HHC and THC is quite subtle, but it still changes the structure of the molecule, as well as how it binds to the Endocannabinoid receptors and pain receptors in the human body.
Due to the changes in the structure of the molecule, HHC tends to be much more stable. This stability enables HHC to have a longer shelf life before losing its potency like other forms of THC.
- HHC offers similar effects and potency as THC. It has been said that HHC is more potent than Delta 8-THC, but slightly less potent than Delta 9-THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume HHC.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Psychotropic potency of HHC will vary by dose and effects will also vary for users. Therefore, do not operate a vehicle after consuming HHC products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
Start off with 1/4 or 1/2 of a dropper. Wait 4 hours for the effects to settle in. Increase or decrease the dose as needed.
