What is HHC?
HHC is a new Hemp-derived cannabinoid that is extracted from Hemp using a clean manufacturing process. HHC is a hydrogenated compound that binds to different receptors than regular Hemp cannabinoids such as Delta-8. A perk of hydrogenation is that it gives stability at the molecular level. HHC is thought to digest in the body the same way as Delta 9 THC. It is said that HHC is more potent than Delta-8 and Delta-10.
What is the difference in HHC and Delta 9-THC?
The main difference in HHC and Delta 9-THC is federal and state legality. HHC is fully federally legal and legal 38 states, while Delta 9-THC is federally illegal and illegal in most states.
How is HHC legal to produce and sell in the USA?
Since products contain only HHC made from 100% Hemp extract, companies are able to fully legally manufacture, distribute and sell to consumers in the United States. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, ratified and signed into law in December 2018, Cannabis containing less than 0.3% Delta 9-THC is legally classified as Hemp and thus is legal for all intents and purposes under federal law. Let’s also not forget, THC itself isn’t federally illegal, only specifically Delta 9-THC is.
