Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two of the most popular cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Both compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system to produce psychoactive effects, but there are some key differences between them. HHC produces effects that can last up to 12 hours, while the effects of THC only last a few hours. HHC is also stronger than delta-8, with approximately 70-80% of the strength of delta-9 (THC).HHC is found naturally in cannabis plants, but it is relatively scarce compared to THC delta 8 and THC delta 10. Commercial HHC is made from hemp-derived CBD in a laboratory using chemical processes.
The federal government may consider HHC and delta-8 to be controlled substances by default under the Federal Analogs Act. The side effects of HHC and THC tend to vary, but they are similar. Experienced users have reported that edibles with HHC (gummies) take a little longer to work, but they last the longest. When choosing between HHC and THC, it's important to consider your individual needs and preferences. If you're looking for lasting relief from your symptoms, HHC may be a better option than THC.
However, it's important to note that the duration of the effects of HHC may vary from person to person.
