HHC or hexahydrocannabinol is a molecule that occurs naturally in the cannabis plant. And while it shares many similarities with THC, it’s not a type of THC.
Not only that, HHC has two distinct advantages over regular Delta 9 THC. First, HHC is legal is more places than D9 THC. Second, it lasts a lot longer.
The HHC found in commercially available products isn’t extracted from the plant. Naturally, it makes up less than 1% of hemp plants, so harvesting it isn’t cost-effective.
The HHC that coats this Sour Lifter flower starts out as CBD harvested from organic hemp plants. Through a solventless process call hydrogenation, the CBD is converted into HHC. It’s similar to the way vegetable oil is changed into margarine. In simple terms, it works like this: hydrogen is added to CBD and then heated until it undergoes a chemical change into HHC.
In this sense, HHC is more closely related to CBD than THC.
However, in terms of mental and physical effects, HHC is far more like THC than CBD. That’s because HHC interacts with the endocannabinoid system in much the same way that Delta 8 THC does.
