First of all, the cannabis plant is not so addictive as it sounds. It contains more than 100 cannabinoids that includes THC and CBD most popularly. In recent times, delta-8 and delta-10 are the most used THCs in comparison to delta-9.
Apart from them, Hexahydrocannabinol(HHC) is also a remarkable compound of the hemp plant. Around 1940, a chemist, Roger Adams created HHC, adding hydrogen molecules to delta-9.
There are more than 10 versions of HHC available in the market, that includes HU243, HU211, 7-OH-HHC, and the original one. When you will go for buying any of these, you can notice the high percentage of its potency in comparison to delta-9-THC. Moreover, HHC does not break so easily in heat and UV light.
What Are The Benefits?
In terms of relaxation, HHC provides quite similar effects to delta-8-THC. Those who already used it, say a lot about this like it alters auditory and visual perception. Also, you can get an energetic and sharp mind after using this.
A study on rats in 2007, states that HHC can enhance the sleeping time between 80% and 700%. Another study in 2011 shows that HHC can potentially resist tumour cell growth.
HHC provides other benefits also, such as it treats euphoria, anxiety, inflammation, nausea, vomiting, cerebral and bodily intoxication, and improves sleep.
Is It Legal?
The compound in HHC is totally legal as it is naturally extracted from the hemp plant. So, thus the HHC also becomes legal. But it is counted as a legal product as long as it contains 0.3% delta-9-THC at the maximum.
Also, now in the United States, it is legal to grow industrial hemp as long as it is within 0.3% delta-9-THC. If the hemp exceeds the THC level, it won’t be counted as legal.
According to FDA, if the hemp is filled with synthetic cannabinoids, it will be declared illegal.
So there are so many confusions the HHC users must face! Still, if you are sure about your HHC seller, you may use it at your own risk.
Is It Safe?
HHC is just new to the market, yet there exists a little bit of confusion here. But according to HHC manufacturers, it is safe and there are no such reports that show any concern against it.
As it is new, you may get excited about it. And there is no such problem against it. So understanding your health condition, you can surely try it.
