What is HHC and what does it do?

Apex Labs CBD Resources. Category: Hemp Today. What is HHC and what does it do?

HHC is one of the newest cannabinoids on the market and it’s already making a name for itself. Thanks to science, innovation, and wider availability, the CBD industry has been able to pioneer new products, discover new cannabinoids and take things to the next level. Delta 8 was one such innovation. And now HHC has entered the chat. If you’ve never heard of it. aren’t sure if you’re ready to try it, or have stumbled on some contradictory information, rest easy. We’ll walk you through everything you need to know about what HHC is and what you can experience when you take it. Spoiler alert, many find it to be energizing and relaxing, all with a boost of mental clarity.

What is HHC?

HHC’s full name is Hexahydrocannabinol (quite the mouthful, we know). And like Delta 8, it’s occurs naturally in the seeds and pollen of the hemp plant. But also like Delta 8, it doesn’t occur in enough quantities to make traditional extraction very cost effective. So we’re able to take a scientific process and chemically convert CBD into HHC.

How is HHC made?

HHC was first made in 1944 by a very talented chemist named Roger Adams when he added hydrogen molecules to Delta-9 THC. This process is known as hydrogenation. It’s also how we get margarine from vegetable oil.

While the HHC of yore was made from THC, our modern chemical processes use the hemp plant and CBD. Once HHC is created, we are then able to distill it down and combine it into gummies, oil tinctures, and water soluble tinctures.

What are the benefits and effects of HHC?

This cannabinoid is one of a few that provides those psychoactive effects that so many people crave. But many find it be gentler and less intense than the traditional Delta 9 THC, much like Delta 8. But we have also found it to be a more energizing alternative to Delta 8. It may help calm and clear the mind while bringing about a sense of relaxation. You may find that HHC is ideal for daytime use while Delta 8 is great option before bed.

Where can I get HHC?

HHC, sometimes called HEX, is one of the newest cannabinoids on the market. So you might not find it at all of the regular retailers, or maybe you can only find available as a vape cartridge.
