Discovered in the 1940s, Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) has been known to science for quite a while, but it wasn’t until recently that you could, in certain locations, purchase products made with this cannabinoid. HHC is similar in its molecular structure to THC. While there’s not much research on HHC yet, some people consider it to be one of the more potent minor cannabinoids (stronger than Delta-8 or CBN).
Pretty much everything we know about HHC’s effects and side effects is anecdotal. People report that the effects are generally pretty similar to THC, without the really potent psychoactive symptoms. You might notice that you have an energy boost, feel like you’re in a much better mood, or even feel like you have less pain. The effects can be different for everyone, some people report anxiety and paranoia, dry mouth, dry and red eyes, hunger, and insomnia.
