HHC Products – Live The High Life
HHC products are simply amazing — because HHC is a wonderful compound, a smooth and subtle way to find relaxation and feel buzzed! Stronger than delta 8 but not quite as potent as delta 9, our HHC products are the perfect sweet spot between two of hemp’s most popular cannabinoids.
If you’ve never heard of HHC, today’s your lucky day! This tell-all guide will get you in the know on all things HHC. This exciting cannabinoid is ready to change your life if you let it, so why not give it a chance?
What Is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids discovered by scientists in hemp and cannabis plants — and it makes fantastic HHC products too!. After the 2018 Farm Bill legalized all hemp-derived products for distribution and consumption, suppliers throughout the country raced to find the next prominent cannabinoid. HHC is one of the latest—and most exciting— compounds to hit the scene.
As a close relative of delta 8 and delta 9, HHC’s psychoactive potency ranges between these two cannabinoids. It might not get you relatively as high as delta 9 THC, but HHC products are a step up from delta 8’s mild, controllable buzz.
How Are HHC Products Made?
HHC is a naturally occurring substance — it’s not synthetic — which gives HHC products a leg up over the competition. However, it’s only found in minute amounts organically, so chemists must perform a rigorous process to obtain usable quantities of the cannabinoid.
Scientifically speaking, HHC is just a hydrogenated form of THC. Our scientists take hemp-derived THC and saturate it with hydrogen atoms, using high pressures and a catalyst, which is a substance that increases the rates of chemical reactions without permanently altering its own chemical structure.
Through this process, scientists can break THC’s double bond chemical structure and replace it with hydrogen, increasing THC’s binding ability for CB1 and CB2 endocannabinoid receptors while simultaneously leaving its effects and potency unchanged.
A Brief History of HHC
Are you aware of the history of HHC products? While HHC made a heroic comeback in recent years, it isn’t a new cannabinoid. As a matter of fact, it was first discovered almost a century ago!
First created in the 1940s by the chemist Roger Adams, HHC, like many other great inventions, was born from scientific curiosity. Adams added hydrogen molecules to delta 9 THC (a process now known as hydrogenation), and thus HHC came to life.
In the 20th century, HHC was synthesized from conventional, cannabis-derived THC. These days, though, HHC is created from hemp due to the plant’s recent federal legalization. HHC may not be new anymore, but it remains an exciting compound ready and able to blast you into orbit!
Thanks to Mr. Adams, we’ve got all sorts of thrilling HHC products here at Diamond CBD. From HHC disposable vapes and HHC carts to HHC edibles and HHC gummies, we’re ready to satisfy all your HHC needs—past, present, and future!
Are HHC Products Safe?
Short answer? Yes, HHC products are safe. Because HHC was recently rediscovered and is now derived from hemp, there isn’t enough research to measure the exact parameters of its usage. HHC’s current safety profile isn’t too rich, but there have been no reports of adverse effects, overdoses, or deaths related to the cannabinoid.
Due to HHC’s proximity to delta 8 and delta 9, researchers speculate HHC to be comparable to the two compounds, with similar benefits and side effects.
Just like its cousins, HHC does run the risk of giving you some not-so-desirable side effects, which can include:
- Dry mouth
- Red eyes
However, the manufacturer is the most important thing to consider when it comes to cannabinoids. Because the FDA doesn’t monitor or regulate hemp-derived cannabinoids, it’s often up to individual companies to set their own standards for safety, quality, and purity.
Here at Diamond CBD, we’re committed to providing you with the safest, highest-quality products. Free of additives, carcinogens, and other dangerous ingredients, our entire process is designed to keep a high standard of health and purity throughout the whole production process.
Our hemp is 100% organic, 100% American-made, and 100% free of pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful chemicals. Qualified and experienced scientists carry out our extraction processes, and all of our products are then third-party lab tested to ensure that only the best products reach the shelves.
As long as you source from Diamond CBD, safety is guaranteed!
How Do HHC Products Compare to Those of Other Cannabinoids?
What’s better, HHC products or delta 8 products? Well, that’s for you to decide. What’s the difference between the two? That we can help you with!
Before comparing, let’s review some of HHC’s properties again.
HHC’s main effects include:
- Relief from aches
- Appetite stimulation
- Moderate high
Now that you’ve got the scoop on HHC, you’re probably wondering how it compares to other cannabinoids.
HHC vs. CBD
The main difference between CBD and HHC is that HHC is a psychoactive compound. CBD, which doesn’t get you high, is commonly used to manage ailments ranging from physical pain to insomnia.
HHC vs. Delta 8
Delta 8 and HHC are perhaps the most similar in terms of side effects and benefits. Simultaneously, HHC’s strength ranks about halfway between delta 8 and delta 9 (according to some sources). Both compounds provide a similar psychotropic experience. These are incredibly identical compounds. HHC products and delta 8 products offer you euphoria and relaxation. The two of them may give you cotton mouth and the munchies too!
Perhaps the main difference between delta 8 and HHC is their chemical structures. As we discussed before, HHC is hydrogenated from THC. While delta 8 has double bonds, HHC has hydrogen molecules in their place. Despite their chemical differences, they both remain federally legal because they begin with the same low-THC cannabis plant, hemp.
HHC vs. Delta 9
HHC and THC aren’t so different; after all, HHC is made from THC! Chemically, HHC and THC are different because HHC has hydrogen atoms instead of double bonds in its chemical structure.
Scientists estimate that HHC is around 70-80% as vital as regular delta 9, and the risk for adverse effects like paranoia and anxiety is lower in HHC than in THC. Another important distinction between delta 9 and HHC is that due to its hydrogenated nature, HHC has a much longer shelf life than its counterpart. Apart from its longer shelf life, HHC has also been studied for the long duration of its effects.
HHC vs. Delta 10
Delta 10 and HHC certainly share some similarities, such as psychotropic experience, legal status, and their roles in enhancing a process known as the entourage effect.
While they’re both minor cannabinoids and new enough to the market that little research has been conducted on either compound, we know they make for different highs. Delta 10 causes a mild, energizing psychoactive experience, while HHC users report a more potent, relaxing high.
HHC vs. THCO
While HHC gives you a buzz worth your while, THCO is perhaps the strongest cannabinoid derived from hemp. As a matter of fact, THC-O isn’t only very strong. It also has psychedelic effects. This is the cannabinoid for you if you want to take a trip from visual to auditory hallucinations!
