The Effects of Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC): What You Need to Know

Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a hydrogenated form of THC, the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It has approximately 70-80% of the concentration of THC, making it more potent than other hemp-derived cannabinoids like Delta-8 and Delta-10. Moderate doses of HHC can induce a psychoactive euphoric effect similar to that of THC, but it is often said to have more relaxing and sedative qualities. When consuming any psychoactive cannabinoid, there is always a risk of getting too high. This usually happens when a person takes too much before they have developed a tolerance.

As HHC is more psychoactive than THC delta 8, it is important to start with low doses and increase gradually. Getting too intoxicated can be uncomfortable and can make certain tasks more dangerous, such as driving or operating heavy machinery. Common side effects of cannabinoids include dry mouth and dry eyes, which are temporary and result from the interaction between cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors in the salivary glands and eyes respectively. The concentration in milligrams of an HHC product will determine the intensity with which you may experience certain side effects, since this number indicates the potency of each portion of hexahydrocannabinol.

At this time, there is not enough data to know if taking HHC can cause serious side effects or long-term negative effects. Everyone's body is unique, so there are all kinds of potential side effects that have a small chance of occurring every time any type of plant derivative is consumed. So far, no serious or life-threatening side effects have been reported from the use of HHC or its products. HHC is a minor cannabinoid found naturally in cannabis, but in quantities that are too small for cost-effective extraction.

Manufacturers have not yet found a cost-effective way to separate the high-power HHC from its low-power twin, so commercial HHC products can be a kind of game of chance for the buyer. Overall, most people report having had a positive experience with hexahydrocannabinol. However, it is important to remember that there is always a risk of certain side effects associated with cannabinoids, especially psychoactive ones. Therefore, it is best to start with low doses and increase gradually to mitigate the chances of inducing a negative effect.
