A few months ago I reintroduced my readers to the new cannabinoid, HHC. It hadn’t gained that much attention until recently when HHC-O became available. Just when you thought you were up to date on all of the recent cannabinoids, here comes another. HHC is, as we have said before, a hydrogenated form of Delta 9 THC. It was first discovered in 1944 when a chemist added hydrogen molecules to Delta 9 THC. It is a hydrogenated cannabinoid that is phenomenally stable and semi-synthetic. It is said to be very mild; a milder version of Delta 8 THC. It is also said to be somewhat relaxing and uplifting as well.
The newest cannabinoid to hit the market is HHC-O. The extra steps to make HHC-O from HHC are fairly dangerous and should only be handled by those really smart people in white coats that work in labs. The “O” comes from adding a highly flammable substance called acetic anhydride. This chemical compound doubles the potency of the HHC. It also increases it’s bioavailability of the cannabinoid. When something is said to be bioavailable, it means our bodies use it better.
Of course you know the benefits of HHC and HHC-O will differ from person to person but I know what you are really wanting to know; yes, it gets you high. But the high is different for everyone but HHC and HHC-O both offer a full body and cerebral high. If you are looking to get baked, they can help with that. If you are just wanting to take the edge off and relax, maybe take some of the day’s aches and pains away, it can do that too. Possible side effects include over consumption can lead to mild paranoia, dizziness, dry eyes and mouth, and confusion. There has also been some concerns if HHC and HHC-O would show up on a drug screen. While some say no, my advice is that anything that comes from THC may test you positive for THC.
When I researched this new cannabinoid, I found it to be almost exactly what the research suggested; very mild and very relaxing. One of our regular customers says the HHC & HHC-O is enough for her because she believes Delta 8 THC is too strong. HHC could be an alternative to Delta 8 THC for those who think it’s too strong for them as well.
