What Is HHC Exactly?


HHC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid compound in hemp, although it only exists in trace amounts.


In 1944 the American chemist, Roger Adams, first created HHC by adding hydrogen molecules to delta 9 THC, although, only recently HHC has become a popular cannabinoid in hemp industry products.


Hemp derived HHC extraction involves a complex process of adding hydrogen atoms to THC using a catalyst like nickel or palladium and high pressure. This makes it a hydrogenated form of THC, which makes it the most stable form. This also means it has a much longer ‘shelf-life’ than delta 9 THC, as it retains potency due to its stability. 


The end result of the hydrogenation process results in a mixture of two different kinds of HHC molecules: 9R HHC which actively binds to the body’s endocannabinoid receptors and 9S HHC which has less binding activity. This receptor activity also points to potential medicinal benefits, except at this time very little scientific research has been conducted on the therapeutic benefits of HHC. Therefore, most information is anecdotal from HHC users.


Both scientists and HHC users maintain that the psychoactive effects are similar yet less potent than delta 9 THC.



The Effects of HHC


HHC has THC like effects on the body and mind. However, most users report that it has less potent psychoactivity than both delta 9 and delta 8 THC, (which is around 50% less potent than delta 9 THC). HHC is considered by some to be close to delta 8 in effects with a lighter psychoactive high.



Most people report that HHC energizes them and increases mental clarity. It also induces feelings of euphoria and altered perceptions. They also report relief from body discomforts and heightened body relaxation.
