Hexahydrocannabinol, HHC for short, is a naturally existing cannabinoid said to be at least just as potent as Delta 8 THC, with many consumers saying its effects are without the negatives of Delta 9 and marijuana. It’s perfect for individuals who may be looking for something a little stronger than Delta 8, but not full blown Delta 9 THC.
HHC is a cannabinoid similar to Delta 8. It exists naturally within the hemp plant in very small amounts. HHC does not contain THC.
When the Farm Bill became law in 2018, hemp and all its cannabinoids and derivatives became legal across the country. Hexahydrocannabinol, or HHC is a naturally existing cannabinoid found in hemp.
Even though structurally different, HHC and THC act similarly to each other in effects. Comparatively HHC is commonly reported to have effects in between those experienced when using Delta 8 and Delta 9. Users often report an energetic and euphoric feeling with less paranoia in comparison to Delta 9.
The length of HHC’s effects are very unique to the individual. As an average, we see high purity vapes lasting 1-5 hours and tinctures and edibles lasting 3-12 hours. Larger doses generally create longer lasting effects, especially with tinctures and edibles.
A difficulty of judging the length of effects is that HHC has a fairly natural onset and come down, so that it is sometimes hard for an individual to truly grasp where their “baseline” is/was before and after taking HHC.
The cannabinoid HHC is reported to be more potent than Delta 8, but less potent than Delta 9.
