Cannabis HHC – What is it?

Following the wild success of Delta-8 THC as a legal alternative to the more controlled availability of Delta-9 THC, the cannabis industry has sought other less-known cannabinoids to compete in the diverse cannabis marketplace. One of the newest and most promising is hexahydrocannabinol, usually shortened to HHC.

How is HHC Made? 

In 1948, chemist Roger Adams discovered how to produce this product by adding hydrogen gas to the THC molecule and changing its physical properties through a process called “hydrogenation.” The patent document describing these findings was filed on behalf of his company -BR Brands-in 1947! It’s important because it improves stability/resistance against thermo-oxidative breakdown, which means you can safely store more than just marijuana products without worrying about them breaking down due to heat or light exposure.

Does HHC get you high?

Many people wonder if HHC makes you feel mildly high, totally “couched” or functional.  While HHC does seem to hit you faster the effects are more lifting. And with the help of high-concept cannabis products like Asheville Dispensary HHC vapes and HHC edibles, you can get more done in less time than ever before.  In fact, customers report that HHC is so effective at stimulating their minds that it even relieves some of their anxiety symptoms! In fact, this potent and totally legal hemp-derived pot has been known to stimulate euphoria and elevate moods while leaving users feeling clearheaded with an increased sense of energy—allowing them to tackle their daily tasks without any difficulties or worries whatsoever.

Does HHC have medical benefits?

The most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis, Delta-9 THC has been shown to have therapeutic benefits for those suffering from cancer or epilepsy. However, there is currently no research on synthetic analogs like hexahydrocannabinol (HHC). A 2011 study showed that some HHC molecules strongly inhibit breast cancer cell-induced angiogenesis and tumor growth. That research showed that it can possibly block cancer cells from growing and spreading by acting as an angiogenesis inhibitor which means they may be able to prevent the development of new blood vessels needed for growths or tumors. Another Japanese paper published five years earlier showcases its impressive pain-blocking capability through mice models at low doses – but it’s too early as this has not been peer-reviewed.

Will using HHC show up in a drug test? 

How long does it take for HHC to break down in your body?  THC is known as a psychoactive drug which means its metabolic products can show up on urine tests. However, there’s some evidence that suggests you might not be able to detect any amount of 11-hydroxyTHCA if they screen based on an employee’s past history with drugs or alcohol misuse; however no one knows whether these types of testing procedures will pick up anything at all since we’re unsure about how much ends up in the body’s system in the end and likely results will vary greatly among each individual.
