What is HHC?
HHC is a new Hemp-derived Cannabinoid made by a process called hydrogenation. While it’s a little more complicated than this, the easiest way to explain the process is that Hydrogen molecules are added to Delta-9 THC in a similar process used to convert vegetable oil to margarine. A mild dose of HHC induces a euphoric high similar to THC, but those that have used it say it has more relaxing qualities similar to Delta-8.
What is Delta 9-THC?
Delta 9-THC (or Delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the traditional version of THC, which is an active ingredient in the Marijuana plant. For this reason, this cannabinoid is responsible for the psychoactive effects that are experienced after consuming or inhaling marijuana.
What is the difference between HHC and Delta 9-THC?
THC and HHC have an almost identical structure on the molecular level, but HHC is estimated to be 20% less potent than THC. Both are extremely similar in terms of the effects, but HHC tends to have a longer shelf life and is currently legal in the state of Texas.
What is the difference between CBD and HHC?
The main difference between CBD and HHC is that CBD does not possess the psychoactive effects that HHC does. HHC has most of the benefits of CBD and tends to introduce the “high” euphoric feeling that can be beneficial to many users.
What does “Hemp-Derived THC” mean?
“Hemp” is any cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% Delta 9-THC. THC is extracted from these types of cannabis plants making the sale of any hemp-derived THC products “technically legal” in most states. The 2018 Farm Bill made it legal to distribute and produce hemp and its byproducts across the U.S, but for hemp to be considered legal, it must contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.
