Let’s Get an Inside Look at HHC-O: The New Kid in Town
While just a decade ago, many considered cannabidiol (CDB) to be the only valuable part of the hemp plant. However, we now know that there are a number of cannabinoids that are all capable of satisfying us with their one-of-a-kind effects, including HHC gummies.
Here’s an inside look into HHC-O, its legality, and what the future might hold for this naturally occurring cannabinoid.
How is HHC-O Made?
HHC-O-acetate is a relatively new hemp-derived cannabinoid to the hemp market, and it's possible you've never heard of it before.
HHC is naturally found in hemp, but only in trace amounts. A complex process is used to saturate the naturally occurring compounds of THC with hydrogen atoms in the presence of high pressure and a catalyst such as nickel or palladium to obtain a usable amount.
THC's double bond chemical structure is broken and replaced with a hydrogenated form, but the effects of the psychoactive cannabinoid and potency are unchanged. THC's binding affinity for the CB1 and CB2 receptors, as well as the same cannabinoid receptors of TRP, is increased by this seemingly minor change.
What Makes HHC-O Products Popular?
Although HHC is not technically THC, its effects are similar to THC's, and it may provide many of THC's therapeutic benefits.
Every batch of HHC produced contains both active and inactive HHC molecules. The major issue is that manufacturers have yet to devise a cost-effective method of distinguishing high potency HHC from its low potency twin.
Benefits of HHC-O Products
As of today, HHC has not been studied extensively enough to draw definitive conclusions about its benefits. There have only been a few studies that suggest HHC may have beneficial effects.
HHC helps with a range of things, such as:
Is HHC-O Safe and Legal?
There has been little research into the short and long-term psychoactive properties and psychoactive effects of HHC. If you do decide to try HHC products, make sure they have a certificate of analysis that shows the HHC ratios and product purity. Furthermore, always begin with a low dose to see how you react.
So, is HHC legal? Producers of various HHC products are adamant that everything is legal because the 2018 Farm Bill legalizes these products containing other hemp-derived cannabinoids and certain psychoactive cannabinoids as long as they do not exceed the 0.3% THC threshold often required in drug testing. The reality, however, is quite different as HHC is not yet a federally legal cannabinoid.
