What is HHCO?
HHCO, or hexahydrocannabinol-o-acetate, is a psychoactive cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant, and it is closely related to HHC. Both HHCO and HHC are hydrogenated compounds, which means that they interact differently with the endocannabinoid system than other cannabinoids and also offer greater stability.
While there are differences in the chemical structure of HHCO and other cannabinoids such as Delta 8 and Delta 10 THC, they still offer similar effects. HHCO is psychoactive, meaning it will get you high, and you can expect that high to be something like what Delta 9 offers.
Potential Therapeutic Benefits
This suggests a potential for promoting a balanced mood, a sense of well-being, and relaxation. There’s also growing interest in the potential supportive qualities it might offer. Some believe it could promote comfort, support a balanced mood, and possibly aid in overall well-being in various situations. However, more comprehensive research is needed to fully understand its range of effects.
Because HHCO is derived from hemp and hemp cultivation is now federal legally in the United States thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, HHCO is also federally legal.
However, it’s always important to try to stay up-to-date with any cannabinoid-based legislation in your state, as the rise in popularity of things like Delta 8 and Delta 10 has prompted conversations about prohibiting products containing these cannabinoids.
