HHC or hexahydrocannabinol is a cannabinoid first synthesized by the American chemist Roger Adamsby adding hydrogen molecules to Delta-9 THC. Known as hydrogenation, this process converts THC into hexahydrocannabinol.
While Adam created HHC from conventional THC-derived cannabis, the molecule is now extracted from hemp where it is found in low concentrations in both seeds and flowers.
Effects of HHC
HHC is highly compatible with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of our endocannabinoid system, and when interacting with them produces similar effects to THC. Users report suffering from less paranoia and side effects than with THC, and a feeling of "high":
- Increased sensory pleasure
How is HHC produced?
HHC was discovered in the 1940s by chemist Roger Adams. He created HHC by adding
hydrogen to the THC molecule and altering its physical properties. The process, called
hydrogenation, first described in a 1947 patent document.
It is currently produced from CBD derived from industrial hemp in a laboratory by means of
What is the difference between HHC and THC?
HHC and THC share an almost identical molecular structure. The key differences are that
HHC has two additional hydrogenated carbons and THC has one ester atom and a
Benefits of HHC
The lack of scientific evidence and research means that the benefits of HHC are mainly anecdotal. However, studies have shown that it may have anti-inflammatory properties similar to CBD and THC, as well as relieving chronic pain, migraines and prolonging sleep.
Is HHC legal in Spain?
Buying HHC in Spain is completely legal. It is a cannabinoid found in hemp, therefore it does not contain THC. The disposable vapersThe THC content of flowers and resins is perfectly legal as long as the THC percentage is kept below 0.2% to comply with EU legislation. So the answer is yes, buying HHC in Spain is legal.
