What is HHC?

HHC, or Hexahydrocannabinol, is a minor cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. It's not as well-known as Delta 9 THC, but it's quickly gaining recognition. HHC doesn't come with the same psychoactive punch as other cannabinoids, making it a popular choice for those seeking therapeutic benefits without the "high."

History of HHC

Contrary to popular belief, HHC isn't a novel hemp-derived cannabinoid. Its roots can be traced back to 1944, when it was first discovered by renowned American chemist Roger Adams. The groundbreaking process entailed the addition of hydrogen molecules to Delta 9 THC, sourced from a highly potent strain of Cannabis sativa. This procedure, known as hydrogenation, saturates the chemical structure with hydrogen. As a result, THC in cannabis oil morphs into HHC, thereby creating a cannabinoid analogue with numerous potential applications.

Benefits of HHC?

Despite the structural differences, HHC and THC exhibit similar behavior. Both being hemp-derived cannabinoids, HHC typically presents effects that fall somewhere between those associated with Delta 8 THC and Delta 9 THC. Users often experience a heightened sense of energy and euphoria compared to Delta 8 THC, coupled with a lesser degree of paranoia than Delta 9 THC.

Many HHC users have reported the following potential benefits:

  • Chronic pain management
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Enhanced, more restorative sleep
  • Anxiety relief (Although, it can potentially escalate anxiety in some people)

Although HHC and THC share similarities, they exhibit enough differences to justify their unique classifications and product offerings. Users generally report HHC as more potent than Delta 8 THC but less intense than Delta 9 THC, making it a comfortable middle ground for those seeking more than Delta 8 THC but less than cannabis.

Is HHC Legal?

Like Delta 8, HHC is derived from hemp, making it federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, it may not be accessible in all states due to varying hemp-related laws. While no laws explicitly prohibit HHC sales and production, states banning Delta 8 THC may also prohibit HHC. In other states, locating HHC products should be relatively straightforward. As laws governing cannabis and hemp industries can change abruptly, it's advisable to familiarize yourself with the current regulations for HHC, Delta 8 THC, and other cannabinoid products in your state before making a purchase. Fortunately, if you encounter difficulties sourcing HHC products locally, you can access the highest-quality HHC and Delta 8 THC offerings online at, Zero Point Extraction.
