The Difference Between HHC and HHCP

One of the biggest challenges with working in an emerging industry like hemp is staying on top of the latest cannabinoids and their impact. While many of these cannabinoids have been known for decades, and their effects on the human body have been studied, they haven’t been commercially available or publicly discussed.

The Hemp Doctor has the best novel cannabinoid coverage around. Make sure you’re subscribed to our blog and email newsletter to stay up-to-date on what you need to know about earth’s greatest plant, hemp.

Today we’re looking at HHC and HHCP, what they are, how you can use them, and where you can get these cannabinoids. This information can help you understand if these products are right for you.

What is HHC?

HHC, short for hexahydrocannabiol, is a hydrogenated version of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol. It’s naturally occurring but can also be manufactured synthetically with hydrogenation of cannabis compounds. Now those are pretty serious words, but if you eat margarine, you consume a hydrogenated product.

HHC is naturally occurring though and doesn’t necessarily need to be synthesized. HHC is found naturally in the pollen and seeds of cannabis plants.

Hydrogenation is used frequently in the food industry because it’s used to make a food less fatty or a flavor more potent. The process was invented in 1897 but HHC wasn’t discovered until the 1940s. It became easier to access and use as a cannabinoid during the 2020s and is now commercially available at retailers like The Hemp Doctor.

What is HHCP?

HHCP is an entirely synthetic cannabinoid that exists by hydrogenating the naturally occurring THCp. HHCp is far more potent than HHC, however, it depends on the user. For some, they’ll find that the HHCp has an effect similar to THC, while others will experience it to be ten times as effective as THC and more than twenty times more effective than HHC. This is because it has more bioavailability than THC; however, people with higher tolerances to THC will experience less significant highs from HHCp.

While there have not been negative side effects reported to HHCp yet, at The Hemp Doctor, we recommend that users begin their usage at low doses, slowly increasing them to get the desired result. You don’t want to find out that you are one of the people it affects strongly after you’ve taken too much.

Are HHC and HHCp legal in the USA?

Many of the HHC and HHCp products available today are created from naturally occurring Delta 8 THC in hemp. This makes the product federally compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. In order to be entirely compliant these products must be grown, cannabinoids extracted, and products produced entirely in the United States.

What effects do each of these have?

HHC is more potent than Delta 8 but less potent than Delta 9. It does still produce a mild high and relaxation. The euphoric feeling it creates is less likely to cause paranoia or anxiety than Delta 9.

HHCp is significantly more potent than Delta 9 THC and traditional HHC. We include very small doses in our products to allow people to control their consumption to the best of their ability.

Do they go well together?

HHC and HHCp can both create a euphoric feeling of relaxation, improve appetites and induce a sensation of calm. When used with a combination of cannabinoids, HHC and HHCp both contribute to the entourage effect, increasing the wellness benefits of these products overall.

Changes in federal enforcement have removed THC-O from the rotation for many cannabis users. If you’re looking for a replacement, a blend of HHC and HHCp might be the right mix for you!

How do I start with HHC and HHCp?

If you’re new to experimenting with cannabinoids we recommend starting with HHC and our Delta 9 products before moving on to HHCp. While we love our HHCp products, they are best for people with a great amount of experience with cannabinoids.

If you’ve been using our products for some time and are looking for something new and exciting, HHCp is the best way to go. We’re so excited about the physical and wellness potential of this product and have been using them ourselves to see how even our high-tolerance Hemp Doctor family responds.

Let’s just say, it’s highly effective.

There are a broad number of options when consuming HHC and HHCp including edibles, flower, and vapes. All of these are available safe and tested at The Hemp Doctor.
