What Is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a hemp-based cannabinoid that is derived from the hemp plant. Unlike its cousins Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC, however, HHC is a tamer compound that offers a “THC-light” experience. HHC is naturally, yet rarely, found in cannabis, but it has been successfully synthesized in a lab.
Hydrogenation is the chemical process of hydrogen atoms being added to a molecule, and it’s through this process that chemist Roger Adams was first able to synthesize HHC in 1947. Now, this HHC cannabinoid has spread far and wide, offering widespread wellness-boosting capabilities and a mellow high you won’t want to miss.
Why Choose HHC?
There are multiple uses for THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. HHC is another safe derivative that can help provide effects similar to traditional cannabis. Hexahydrocannabinol’s benefit comes from its incredibly low level of intensity. While it may cause you to need more to feel beneficial effects, it provides you with more exact control over the way you feel.
The HHC cannabinoid is a more mellow alternative to the intensity of THC or even Delta-8. According to anecdotal evidence, HHC can cause the effects of THC or even Delta-8, but only in very high quantities. It is said that HHC is about half as potent as standard THC.
In high doses, CBD, Delta-8, and Delta-9 THC may make you sleepy, but HHC is known for its potential energy-boosting qualities. Some users say they feel a slight easing of discomfort, as well as a sense of clarity with HHC.
Right now, you’ll typically find HHC made into oil or packed into a vape cartridge or disposable vape. These products provide quick, potent effects in the right doses!
HHC Safety and Legality
HHC currently has no standard dose or method of legal regulation. It is currently as legal to sell and consume as other cannabinoids like CBD or Delta-8. Since hexahydrocannabinol is technically found in the hemp plant, it is protected federally by hemp and agricultural law.
HHC is also easily synthesized in the correct lab with the right equipment. As long as the lab is grounded and protected from combustion, the creation of HHC is relatively safe. When consumed, HHC has only anecdotal side effects. Both the positive and negative aspects of HHC can only be taken from personal accounts. HHC may be able to ease occasional discomfort and soothe busy minds, as well!
