With the help of this blog you can find out how it works, the ways to consume it, and how it’s extracted. You can also find out how to find good quality HHC products in retail and online stores without being scammed.

What Is HHC & How Does It Work?

The HHC cannabinoid was first discovered in 1944 by an American chemist named Roger Adams who was trying to merge hydrogen atoms with the Delta 9 cannabinoid. HHC also known as hexahydrocannabinol is commonly found in small traces inside the seeds and pollen of hemp plants. This cannabinoid is also referred to as the hydrogenated version of the Delta 9 cannabinoid.

It can create psychoactive and intoxicating effects which are considered to be much stronger than the Delta 8 cannabinoid. However, the effects produced by the HHC cannabinoid aren’t as strong as the effects produced by the Delta 9 cannabinoid.  The reason for this is that the Delta 9 cannabinoid has a higher binding affinity for the CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system than HHC.

How To Extract HHC?

Since the HHC cannabinoid occurs in very small traces inside the seeds and pollen of hemp plants, it makes it difficult to extract this cannabinoid directly from the plant. That’s why chemists and researchers had to look for other methods to obtain this cannabinoid. One of those extraction methods is called hydrogenation.

In hydrogenation, the Delta 9 cannabinoid is converted into the HHC cannabinoid. Its process involves removing the double bonds of the Delta 9 cannabinoid and replacing them with 2 hydrogen atoms which will help in converting Delta 9 to HHC. This is also the reason why HHC is referred to as the hydrogenated version of Delta 9.

How Can You Consume HHC?

The HHC cannabinoid is sold in the form of various products that are consumed in a number of ways. You can consume this cannabinoid based on your preferences and what you feel most comfortable using. Here are some ways that you can consume HHC:

  • Vape

It takes about 5-10 minutes for HHC to kick in which is the shortest amount of time for you to feel the effects of HHC when you’re vaping. This is because, during the process of vaping when you inhale the vapors of the HHC concentrate or vaping oil, the cannabinoid immediately enters your bloodstream, and activates its effects by traveling to your brain. Those effects then last for about 3-4 hours.

  • Tinctures

HHC tinctures on other hand take about 20-30 minutes for their effects to kick in and those effects last for about 4-5 hours. It’s relatively easy to consume them, all you have to do is place a few drops of the tincture in your mouth and hold them under your tongue for a minute or two. This allows the mucous membrane in your tongue to absorb the drops and also allows the HHC cannabinoid to enter your bloodstream easily and activate its effects.

  • Gummies 

HHC gummies are the most commonly used products in the market. They take about 45 minutes to an hour for the effects to kick in which is the longest amount of time as compared to the other ways to consume HHC. This is because when you consume HHC gummies, they have to be digested in your stomach before the HHC cannabinoid can enter your bloodstream and activate its effects. Although they take a long time to kick in, HHC gummies can also create effects that last for a very long time such as 6-8 hours.
