The Difference Between HHC-O, Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC

The key difference between these three cannabinoids is the presence of a double bond in the chemical structure.

Delta 9 THC

has a double bond at the ninth carbon of the central ring structure, while Delta 8 has this bond at the eighth carbon. The HHC simply doesn't have a double bond in any of the positions. The main difference between HHC-O and Delta 9-THC is federal and state legality.

HHC-O is fully federally legal in 41 states, while Delta 9-THC is illegal and federally illegal in most states. Both HHC and Delta 9-THC produce euphoric psychoactive effects on consumers and carry a wide variety of medical and recreational benefits. HHC is known to have similar effects to the delta-8 and delta-9 of THC, since it has psychoactive properties. Users claim that the effects of the cannabinoid HHC are relaxing and euphoric and that they can help with nausea or promote better rest compared to traditional THC. There are some important differences when it comes to Delta 9 and HHC.

The first goes directly to its chemical structure. D9 has a double bond along the cannabinoid's carbon chain. To separate it from the rest, the Delta 9 has its double bond in the ninth carbon chain. Others, such as the Delta 8, have their double bond in different carbon chains.

HHC is different because it doesn't have double bonds. Instead, it has two additional hydrogen atoms to create different effects. This difference in structure may cause HHC to have a longer lifespan compared to other cannabinoids. HHC has been reported to have similar effects with both THC Delta 8 and THC Delta 9, but all of these compounds are very different. Users should be careful when looking for a product that contains HHC in its composition in the first palace.

While some users think they know what HHC is and insist that they can avoid drug testing, this is largely unfounded.

Delta 9 THC

, also known simply as THC or D9, is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana that gives it the psychoactive effects it is known for. The addition of hydrogen to THC in cannabis oil converts it into molecules of HHC, a cannabinoid analog that can have several applications. The effects of HHC are much stronger than the lighter effects of Delta 8, but not as intense as those of the D9, which may be too much for some consumers. As with Delta 8, the risk of consuming HHC comes from the possible presence of harmful and toxic by-products in the final article, as a result of the use of aggressive chemicals during the manufacturing process. Anecdotal evidence shows that HHC is closer to Delta 9 in poisoning, but has more similarities to Delta 8.

Delta 8

is much milder than Delta 9, but it can cause some of the common side effects, such as anxiety, extreme tiredness and low blood pressure. With similar state laws that adopted the definition set out in the Farm Bill, this limited amount of THC Delta 9 is legal throughout the United States.

CBD can be used for many health reasons, but it will never cause the consumer the psychoactive effects that HHC-O and Delta 9 would provide. HHC-O provides most, if not all, of the benefits of CBD, but it also provides a “euphoric feeling” that can be very beneficial to many users. Delta 8 hemp products are another excellent option, although less potent than HHC or Delta 9 THC products, they can still be enjoyed at higher doses without being entirely overwhelming. In addition to CBD, which is considered the main anticonvulsant component of cannabis, delta 9 also holds promise for the treatment of this debilitating condition.
