Find the Perfect HHC Edibles at The Hemp Doctor
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a compound that is most often created using hemp oil. Through the process of hydrogenation, the hemp oil is infused with oxygen, and this converts the THC in the oil to HHC. Since HHC contains an additional hydrogen molecule that THC does not, the psychoactive effects of HHC are generally milder than those of Delta 9 THC—which many of our customers prefer.
What To Know About HHC Edibles
Many of our customers equate the HHC high to that they experience with Delta 8, though some say the HHC high is even more mild. With that said, we sell a variety of HHC products—including HHC edibles—that offer different potencies and different euphoric effects. Due to the nature of the manufacturing process for HHC, it isn’t possible to know the true potency of HHC until you have the end product, and some products can actually have a potency greater than that of Delta 9 THC.
At The Hemp Doctor, we test all of our products for potency in-house, and we also work with an independent testing laboratory that verifies the potency and labeling of our products. As a result, you always know what you are getting when you purchase our HHC edibles and gummies.
Another important fact to know about the HHC manufacturing process is that it involves heavy metals. As a result, choosing a reputable supplier is extremely important. With our thorough testing and quality control processes, you can feel confident in the HHC edibles you buy from The Hemp Doctor, and if you’d like you can view our test results and certificates of analysis (COAs) online.
Did You Know?
Since HHC is essentially a modified form of THC that is created from hemp, it offers many of the same effects and potential health benefits as natural hemp products.
Do HHC Edibles Give You a High?
Eating an HHC gummy or edible will give you a high similar to that you get from THC—although the amount you consume and your personal tolerance level will impact your experience significantly. As noted above, the high is generally milder than a Delta 9 high with most HHC products when comparing milligram-for-milligram. As a result, many people enjoy HHC edibles simply because they can eat more and still experience similar effects.

HHC Edibles: Another Great Alternative to Smoking
Like Delta 9 gummies and edibles, HHC edibles are a great alternative to smoking. If you are interested in the euphoric effects and potential health benefits of THC but aren’t interested in smoking for any reason, HHC edibles could be just the products you are looking for.
Plus, our HHC edibles are delicious. We offer a wide variety of flavors and products, all with their potency clearly specified on the label. This way, you can enjoy our HHC products safely and responsibly, and you can adjust your dosage based on your personal tolerance level and what you want to get out of your HHC experience.
Since edibles and gummies go through your digestive system, you won’t have a major psychoactive experience with our HHC edibles right away. Instead, the high from HHC onsets gradually—in most cases you will start to notice its effects after about 30 to 45 minutes. You can expect the high to last anywhere from about two to six hours; though, again, there are several factors that come into play.
Are HHC Edibles Legal?
Under the federal Farm Bill, which Congress passed in 2018, HHC is most likely legal when it is derived from hemp. Although a recent letter from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) potentially calls this into question. That letter addressed THC-O (another type of synthetic cannabinoid that can be derived from either cannabis or hemp); and, in it, the DEA wrote that since THC-O does not occur naturally, it does not “fall under the definition of hemp” under the Farm Bill.
But, there has been a clear trend toward legalization at the state level—especially when it comes to hemp and hemp-derived products. As a result, even if the DEA decides that HHC doesn’t qualify as hemp under the Farm Bill, many states may (and likely will) decide otherwise. Additionally, according to various resources, several states have already legalized HHC. As one resource explains, “a good rule of thumb is that if THC is legal in a certain area, then HHC is also legal.”
What Should You Look for When Buying HHC Edibles?
There are a few things to look for when buying HHC edibles. First and foremost, you will want to buy your gummies and edibles from a trustworthy source. Unfortunately, there are a lot of untrustworthy sources out there; and, with these companies, you don’t necessarily know what you are getting. At The Hemp Doctor, we conduct comprehensive testing, clearly label our products, and put our COAs online because we want our customers to be able to make informed decisions.
Second, you will want to consider the potency of the gummies and edibles you choose. Potency is a key factor that will determine the nature and duration of your experience when consuming HHC. Third, you should choose a flavor that speaks to you. We offer lots of products, and our wide selection gives you options whether you are looking for fruit-flavored gummies or indulgent edibles.
Key Takeaways: What to Consider When Buying HHC Products
So, you’re interested in exploring the world of HHC. What are the key takeaways you should consider as you make your purchase? As with all cannabinoids, you should choose a potency with which you are comfortable; and, if you aren’t sure where to start with your dosage, start small. It is also important to choose a reliable source, as the quality controls used during the HHC manufacturing process vary widely.
When it comes to the legality of HHC, as noted above, if THC is legal in your state, then HHC is likely legal as well. With that said, as with all cannabinoids, if you have questions or concerns, you should do your research or consult with a lawyer. The same is true when it comes to understanding the health benefits of HHC. While preliminary results suggest that HHC has potential health benefits similar to those of THC, you should consult with your doctor if you want to know more.
