Melt your stress and start your relaxation, pick an HHC product from our wide selection.
HHC, also known as hexahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid that is mostly found in the seeds and pollen of hemp plants in very small traces. This cannabinoid was discovered in 1944 by an American chemist named Roger Adams, who was trying to the Delta 9 cannabinoid with hydrogenated atoms.
Since HHC occurs in very small traces in hemp, it couldn’t be extracted directly from hemp, which is why scientists and researchers had to find other ways to obtain this cannabinoid. One of the ways that they discovered to obtain HHC, is through a process called Hydrogenation.
This process involves removing the double bonds of Delta 9 and replacing them with two hydrogen atoms. This results in Delta 9 converting into the HHC cannabinoid. HHC is also referred to as the hydrogenated version of Delta 9.
Thanks to this process the HHC cannabinoid can’t get damaged when exposed to heat, light, or oxygen, and it also has a long shelf life. The HHC cannabinoid can create psychoactive and intoxicating effects which are similar to that of THC. Although these effects are much stronger than Delta 8, they’re not as strong as the effects of Delta 9.
For the effects to kick in, it usually depends on the type of HHC products you consume, as well as how you consume them. Such as:
It takes about 30-45 minutes for the effects of HHC gummies to kick in. When you consume an HHC gummy, it travels to your stomach and gets digested. After it’s been digested, the HHC cannabinoid enters your bloodstream and travels to your brain to allow its effects to kick in. Those effects last for about 2-6 hours depending on how much you consume.
When it comes to vaping HHC, it takes only about 5-10 minutes for the effects to kick in. This is because when you inhale the vapors of the HHC concentrate, the cannabinoid enters your bloodstream easily and allows its effects to kick in very quickly. That’s why you’re able to feel its effects kick in immediately after the first 2 or 3 puffs, those effects then last for about 3-4 hours.
HHC tinctures on the other hand take about 15 minutes for the effects to kick in, and they’re consumed in many ways. From straight away swallowing the drops of the tincture, to holding them under your tongue for a few seconds. The latter is considered the most common way of consuming tinctures. This is because when you hold the drops under your tongue, the mucous membrane in your tongue absorbs them and allows the HHC cannabinoid to enter your bloodstream and activate its effects in your brain without having to go through the process of digestion. The effects then last for at least 4-6 hours.
