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
That means an uplifted mood, a sense of euphoria, and a sense of calm and relaxation, as well as a variety of potential therapeutic benefits. Those potential therapeutic benefits may include pain relief, anxiety relief, appetite stimulation, anti-inflammatory properties, sleep aid properties, and more.
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.
