What is HHC?

If you’re not familiar with HHC, here’s a basic rundown. HHC is short for hexahydrocannabinol. It was originally isolated by chemist Roger Adams and has been used in labs since the 1970s. The process to make HHC uses hydrogenation to isolate the molecule from the plant — similar to how margarine is created from vegetable oils.

The process of hydrogenation is adding hydrogen to an organic compound, in this case, hemp-derived THC. In order to complete this process, a heavy-metal catalyst is used.

This is a newly available cannabinoid that is storming the US market. It’s a semi-synthetic cannabinoid that exists in small amounts in nature but can be manufactured in a lab. The molecule is very similar to Delta 9 THC, and its effects on the human body are also similar. HHC is digested in the same way that Delta 9 THC is, and it’s believed to be more potent than Delta 8 THC. Like Delta 9 THC, it bonds to the CB receptors to produce a pleasurable sensation throughout the mind and body.

What does HHC feel like?

The effects of HHC are very close to those of Delta 9 THC. So if you can’t buy Delta 9 THC, where you live now, HHC is likely the closest alternative. This hemp-derived compound is a perfect step between Delta 8 and THC-O — stronger than D8 and less so than THC-O.

Is HHC safe?

HHC is manufactured using heavy metals. For this reason, it’s incredibly important to get your HHC products and HHC vapes from reputable retailers like The Hemp Doctor. We make all of our heavy metal tests and certificates of analysis available to our customers on our website. Practice safe vaping by making sure you’re using the cleanest products on the market. Buy from The Hemp Doctor, where you can verify our results.

Is HHC Legal?

When comparing HHC and THC, the biggest difference is the legal status. Because THC is federally illegal and outlawed or only approved for medical use in many states, it can be difficult to buy safely. On the other hand, HHC is protected under the Farm Bill of 2018 because it’s derived from hemp with less than 0.3% THC. The Hemp Doctor even goes one step further and insists that every product we carry has a corresponding certificate of analysis. This means that you can trust that your HHC is safe when you buy it from The Hemp Doctor.

What’s the difference between HHC and Delta 9 THC?

HHC exists in nature in only the pollen and seeds. However, it can be created artificially in a lab by hydrogenating hemp-derived THC. Delta 9 THC, however, exists in abundance in the flowering buds of cannabis plants.

There is believed to be a potential of greater bioavailability with HHC over THC. This means that more cannabinoid is filtered into your bloodstream and picked up by your endocannabinoid system. This means you can use less to get the same effects — however, it also means you should start with a lower dosage than you would normally use with Delta 8 or Delta 9. Try HHC today!
