HHC, Hexahydrocannabinol


If you're interested in cannabinoids, you may be familiar with CBD, Delta-8, or Delta-9. But HHC has flown under the radar for quite some time, despite having similar benefits to Delta-8. Now, HHC is finally getting the attention it deserves, and more hemp product enjoyers are starting to incorporate HHC products into their wellness regimen.  Blue Springs CBD is here to go through all of the finer details of HHC for anyone looking to learn about this fantastic compound.

What Is HHC?

Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is becoming one of the most prevalent cannabinoids on the market right now, and for a good reason. HHC is a chemical compound found naturally in hemp and considered to be a minor cannabinoid.  It has a mild psychoactive effect and is generally enjoyed to promote a sense of calm and help the body and mind unwind. The levels of HHC that occur in the plant are too small to make extracting them worthwhile, so most HHC is semi-synthetic and uses CBD as a base. 

How Is HHC Made?

The first HHC was made through a process remarkably similar to converting vegetable oil to margarine. The American chemist Roger Adams used hydrogenation, where he added hydrogen to Delta-9 molecules. Today, HHC cannabinoids are derived from hemp and start with pure CBD. The CBD extracted from hemp plants is distilled, refined, and isolated into a powder. It's essentially the starting point for the science that births HHC.  Blue Springs CBD is always thorough and selective when it comes to CBD selections. And because HHC is derived from CBD, we're equally involved in understanding where the product comes from and its purity.

What Is the Legal Status of HHC?

HHC is legal on the federal level, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, a bill that paved the way for many minor cannabinoid products. Currently, there are no states that have laws that call out HHC specifically. But because some states have different restrictions on CBD, they may also restrict HHC.  It's best to research your local CBD laws to understand how your state views HHC products before you buy them.

How Strong Is HHC?

This question is important to ask but not always easy to answer because everyone will experience HHC differently. It's said that HHC is slightly more potent than other minor cannabinoids like Delta-8 or Delta-10.  If you're concerned about the mild psychoactive effects of HHC, we recommend starting with smaller doses and taking note of how you're feeling. The experience should be overwhelmingly pleasant rather than uncomfortable, so take care to only use an amount that's right for you.

What Should I Expect to Feel from HHC?

If you're familiar with Delta-8, the effects of HHC are very similar. HHC is mildly psychoactive, so you will feel a light "high" that's slightly more soothing and carefree than the more mellow and sedative effects you'd get from Delta-8 products. The hallmark benefits of HHC are:
  • Improving appetite and restful sleep
  • Increasing comfort and relaxation
  • Feelings of euphoria
  • Inciting creative thoughts
  • Energizing and mood-boosting
Everyone will experience HHC differently, so your results may vary. What you feel will also depend heavily on how much you consume and your tolerance levels. HHC could produce minor side effects typically associated with cannabinoids, such as dry mouth and eyes or tiredness. 

How Can I Enjoy HHC?

HHC has quickly become a favorite among cannabinoid consumers, so it's easy to find it in many consumption options. Whether you're more of a gummy, flower, or oil person, you can indulge in the benefits of HHC.  Blue Springs CBD has first-rate HHC flowers and gummies for consumers to use to help celebrate life and find pleasure in the little moments. One great aspect of HHC products is that they tend to have a longer shelf life. The stability of HHC makes it a perfect option for anyone who likes to partake in cannabinoids occasionally without feeling like they're wasting their money.

How Long Before I Feel the Effects of HHC?

How long it takes for you to experience the sensations associated with HHC will depend on how you consume it. You'll experience the feelings much more quickly with vapes or flower; it usually only takes a few minutes to start enjoying the benefits. With edibles, however, it could take up to an hour.  And while the effects will carry through for one to three hours from smoking, edibles could last up to eight.  The consumption method should align with what kind of experience or day you want to cultivate. So smoking gives you a bit more control over how and when you feel HHC, whereas edibles let you surrender to the experience and can be helpful when you aren't able to smoke or vape.

How Safe Is HHC?

The reality is that most cannabinoids lack appropriate regulation, so it's not easy to tell what the long-term side effects of HHC could be.  Because hemp-derived cannabinoids aren't as well regulated, it's essential that you purchase HHC products from a reputable company like Blue Springs CBD. We recognize how crucial it is to stay open and honest with our customers and how much transparency in a market like cannabinoids can go a long way.  If you're buying HHC from a company that marks its products clearly and guarantees potency, the next step is to consume the product safely. Like any wellness lifestyle change, it's worth discussing with your doctor. You should aim to do everything you can to avoid interactions with medications or medical conditions you may have.  But otherwise, just use a serving size that works for you, and if you're going to increase the serving, do so slowly.
