What is HHC? What You Need to Know

You may have heard talk about HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) recently, a popular cannabinoid on the market right now. Read on to learn what you need to know about HHC, including what it is, its effects, how it works, and more.

What is It?

HHC is the abbreviation for hexahydrocannabinol, a form of THC that is hydrogenated. It is found in hemp in small amounts. Either CBD or THC is taken from a hemp plant and is then converted into a powder substance by isolation and refinement. After exposed to hydrogen and a catalyst, such as nickel, it is converted into HHC.

What Effects Does It Have?

HHC produces a similar psychoactive effect that THC is known for. This is likely due to their molecular similarities and interactions with the endocannabinoid system in the human body. Although scientists are still unclear regarding the benefits, some customer reviews say it helps with pain and aching muscles. Below are some possible side effects when using HHC.

Effects include:

1. Feelings of euphoria
2. Increased appetite
3. Increased heart rate
4. Alteration of your visual and auditory perceptions

Some users locate this cannabinoid between delta 8 THC and delta 9 THC.

Is It Legal?

HHC is legal in Maryland according to the Farm Bill that went into effect in 2018. Any cannabis that contains less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC is not classified as a controlled substance and is said to be legal. If any product originates from a hemp plan, such as THC in this instance, the product is also considered to be legal.

Will It Show Up on a Drug Test?

In short: The answer is unclear. However, there have been claims made that it will not. It is recommended that anyone expecting to take a drug test should not use HHC to be safe.

What Formats Does It Come In?

It comes in a variety of formats, including the following at Charm City Hemp:

1. Delta Extrax Hydro HHC Gummies Sours
2. Pacha Peaches and Cream HHC Disposable Vape Pen
3. Day Drinker HHC Seltzer
4. And more. . .

We hope this blog post helps you understand more, including what it is, its effects, and its legality.
