Hemp-derived products with a THC content of less than 0.3% are allowed in most states in the US. However, the legal status of HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol) is not as clear. HHC is an isomer of THC, and it is not extracted directly from the hemp plant, but derived from CBD. In some states, HHC is considered a “synthetic cannabinoid” and is therefore illegal.
In other states, it is not specifically mentioned in the law, so its legal status is uncertain. In Arizona, recreational delta 9 is legal, but THC isomers such as delta 8 or HHC are considered Schedule I drugs and are therefore illegal. In Kansas, hemp-derived products with less than 0.3% THC are legal, so HHC is likely to be legal as well. Florida has no explicit laws regarding HHC, but has stated that all hemp-derived products and extracts with less than 0.3% THC are legal.
In Georgia, HHC is not specifically mentioned in the law, but if it is considered a “synthetic cannabinoid” it would become illegal. The same applies to Iowa, where CBD and Delta 8 are considered illegal, so it would be correct to infer that HHC is also prohibited. The only exception are pharmaceutical companies that the FDA authorizes to produce and sell HHC as a prescription drug. In Washington State, THC isomers such as Delta-8 and HHC are considered controlled substances and are therefore illegal.
To sum up, while hemp-derived products with a THC content of less than 0.3% are allowed in most states in the US, the legal status of HHC varies from state to state. In some states it is considered a “synthetic cannabinoid” and therefore illegal, while in other states its legal status is uncertain.
