What is HHC?
HHC was first created in 1944 by the American chemist Roger Adams, when he added hydrogen molecules to Delta-9 THC. This process, known as hydrogenation, converts THC to hexahydrocannabinol (HHC). HHC is also found naturally in hemp but only in small amounts.
How Does HHC compared to THC?
HHC doesn’t lose potency as quickly when exposed to environmental factors such as light, heat, and air compared to THC because of its hydrogenation. Therefore, it has a long shelf life compared to THC.HHC users have said that it is more relaxing than stimulating, often placing HHC between D8 and D9.
What are the benefits and side effects of HHC?
HHC has a similar psychoactive feeling like THC. You can have feelings of euphoria, altered visual and auditory perception, appetite increase, and a temporarily increase your heart rate when you take HHC.
You may also have the side effects of anxiety and paranoia, dry mouth, dry and red eyes, hunger, and insomnia.
Will HHC Make me fail a drug test?
HHC users may not fail standard 12-panel drug test as the test won’t be able to detect it. However, this information is anecdotal evidence so there is may be a risk that you may fail a drug test.
