What is HHC?
HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, is a compound resembling THC. Scientifically derived from THC through a process called hydrogenation, HHC occurs naturally in hemp and cannabis plants.
HHC possesses psychoactive properties, providing a milder experience compared to THC—about 20-30% less potent.
This positions HHC as a safer and more potent alternative among hemp-derived cannabinoids, distinguishing it from THC variations like Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC.
The effects of HHC
HHC induces effects akin to THC but at a diminished intensity. Users typically experience a subtle euphoria and a mild calming effect. Notably, HHC may improve mental clarity and focus. While it can stimulate appetite, this effect is less pronounced than with THC. Generally, HHC presents fewer side effects like paranoia and anxiety than THC, though caution and adherence to recommended dosages remain essential.
