What is HHC? Hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol
HHC is a hemp derived cannabinoid that is starting to become popular in the vape market. It was first made in 1944 by American chemist Roger Adams by adding hydrogen molecules to Delta 9 THC a process known as hydrogenation. HHC is made in a lab by converting CBD from hemp into HHC. HHC is not a naturally occurring in cannabis like Delta 8, Delta 9 and Delta 10.
Is HHC legal?
HHC is federally legal and protected by the 2018 Federal Farm Bill. HHC might even be more legal than Delta 8 and Delta 10 because it is not THC at all. HHC also might elude drug tests but that is only anecdotal. HHC is legal in states which have no Delta 9 program and also states that have made Delta 8 and Delta 10 illegal.
Will HHC get me high?
Yes, the “high” from HHC is similar to Delta 8 and Delta 10 but takes a higher dose. People have reported that the “high” from HHC is more uplifting and energetic then the “high” from Delta 8 or Delta 10. Part of the reason could also be how the terpenes interact with the cannabinoids also known as the Entourage Effect.
How is HHC made?
CBD is extracted from hemp and turned into a powder. The powder is put into a chemical reactor where the process gets very complicated with time, temperature and hydrogen.
HHC vs Delta 8 or Delta 10
Both Delta 8 and Delta 10 are made in a lab but are naturally occurring in cannabis which is the reason certain states recognize Delta 8 and Delta 10 as legal. HHC is a synthetic cannabinoid only made and found in the labs. Certain states claim that HHC is illegal because it is purely a synthetic cannabinoid not found in the cannabis plant.
