Since the 2018 Farm Bill took effect, it’s been an exciting time for anyone who uses hemp for wellness. The law opened the door for many exciting new hemp cannabinoids to help people feel and live better. One of these new cannabinoids already generating buzz for its clear-minded, uplifting benefits is HHC.

If you’re looking for something to help you unwind while staying present or to boost your day-to-day adventures, HHC is a hemp cannabinoid you’ll want to know. And if you’d like a little more information about HHC before you get started, here is everything you need to know about this new unique hemp compound.

What is HHC?

HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, is among the wave of newly available cannabinoids that are hot in demand these days. Like the more well-known cannabinoids that have been long used, HHC is rightfully receiving a lot of attention, although we still have so much to learn about its exciting benefits.

What’s caught the attention of so many people are HHC’s pleasant, noticeably relaxing effects. It can be the perfect go-to for when you’re looking to unwind yet would prefer little-to-no cerebral fogginess. You could use it to help spark creativity, get lost in a book, or make takeout with friends even more enjoyable.

Compared to conventional Delta 9 and Delta 8 that you’re likely familiar with, HHC tends to be less potent. It hits that sweet spot for those who find Delta 8 a little too strong and Delta 10 too mild. Our blog comparing HHC vs Delta 9 explains more.

HHC occurs naturally in hemp plants, particularly in the seeds and pollen. However, because of its limited concentration in hemp plants, HHC is generally not extracted and isolated to make HHC products. Instead, scientists have discovered how to safely convert naturally occurring CBD into the same HHC compound native to the plant.

If you’re new to HHC, you’re not alone. Most people are just starting to hear about it. But the compound was first discovered in 1944 by American chemist Roger Adams. The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill made HHC federally legal to use and enjoy.

How is HHC Made?

The HHC you find in products today is carefully created using a multi-step process that starts with naturally occurring CBD. The person who first figured out how to create HHC did so by adding hydrogen to a THC molecule to alter its physical properties. This process, called hydrogenation, was first described in a patent document in 1947.

Hydrogenation modifies the structure of other cannabinoids by replacing their double bonds with two hydrogen atoms. The process changes the compound’s molecular weight and makes it more stable.

What this means is that the process of converting CBD and other cannabinoids into HHC increases the cannabinoid’s resistance to the thermos-oxidative breakdown process. So, HHC is less prone to damage caused by UV light and heat exposure, giving it longer shelf life.


In looking up HHC, you may have seen the term HHC-O. HHC-O is the acetate version of HHC, which means it’s had added an acetic anhydride to its chemical structure.

So, while HHC and HHC-O are closely related, they have very subtle differences. That addition of acetic anhydride results in HHC-O having a greater potency compared to HHC. Because of this, HHC-O is sometimes nicknamed “Super HHC.” It’s thought to have a potency that’s comparable to Delta 9 THC.

Besides increasing the potency, adding acetic anhydride also increases the bioavailability of the cannabinoid, so more of it reaches your body’s systems for more powerful effects.


HHC and CBD are two of the many cannabinoids naturally present in the hemp plant. Each cannabinoid interacts with the body’s systems slightly differently and has unique effects. So, while CBD is generally used to promote everyday wellness and balance, people tend to turn to HHC for its noticeable clear-minded, uplifting effects. CBD also plays a critical role in preparing HHC through the hydrogenation process.

But there’s no reason why you must choose one or the other -- they can also be used together synergistically, which is pretty impressive. Unlike CBD, which is not known to have any uplifting effects, HHC produces a unique, pleasantly uplifting effect that can help spur creative thoughts or upgrade friend hangouts.

Benefits of HHC

Among the reasons HHC is becoming rapidly popular are the unique advantages and benefits it has to offer. If you decide to try out HHC, you can expect the following benefits (although keep in mind people respond to cannabinoids differently):

Uplifting, clear-minded effects

Many people turn to HHC for its effects. HHC delivers the type of euphoria so many people seek and yet tends to keep the mind clear, making it ideal if you’re looking to take the edge off and yet stay productive.

Research into HHC and its effects are limited, but it works by binding with and activating CB1 receptors in the brain to create an uplifting effect. However, with HHC, the effect leans more towards a calming yet clear-headed euphoria. It’s also worth noting that HHC tends to have less potent effects than Delta 8 THC and more potent effects than Delta 10 THC, although everyone’s experience can vary.

Longer shelf-life

HHC appears to have a longer shelf-life than other cannabinoids, although experts aren’t yet sure with certainty. But if you’re someone who uses cannabinoids periodically and is worried about them degrading, HHC products may prove to be a good option.

It looks as though HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) buys more time because it is more stable and has better resistance to thermo-oxidative processes than other cannabinoids. Most cannabinoid products last for about 2 years from when it was made, so it’s safe to assume that any HHC product you’re considering will stay good for at least 24 months.

Is HHC Legal?

HHC products are federally legal to buy and use under the 2018 Farm Bill. This federal law legalized hemp and hemp derivatives, such as HHC.

With that said, HHC products must still meet the requirements laid out in the 2018 Farm Bill. This includes containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by dry weight. That’s why it’s important to only buy HHC products from a respected brand with some degree of longevity and a proven track record of providing safe and high-quality cannabinoids.

While cannabinoid products adhering to the 2018 Farm Bill are federally legal, states can regulate cannabinoids as they wish. Therefore, you should confirm whether HHC and other cannabinoid products are legal in your state.

Types of HHC Products

HHC may be new to the scene, but already there is a wide range of HHC products available. You can pick and choose the type of HHC products that best meet your needs and preferences.


Gummies are perhaps the most popular way to enjoy HHC because of their consistent serving size and diverse flavor options. They are convenient, easy to take, and easy to carry if you prefer to take your HHC on the go. Carry your jar of gummies or an individual gummy with you and consume them discreetly without the curious looks of onlookers.

At Koi CBD, we know you want to experience the benefits of HHC and enjoy the process. That’s why we emphasize delivering the most flavorful and consistently soft gummies that add enjoyment to your HHC routine. Our gummies are carefully blended to ensure you’re getting the same amount of HHC every time you take a gummy. You don’t need to calculate your intake because the gummies are verified for a pre-determined potency.

While HHC gummies are the most popular right now, expect more HHC edibles to come along shortly. We wouldn’t be surprised to see more HHC edible options arrive as more people learn about HHC and its benefits.

How to use HHC gummies

Looking for HHC the easiest way? Then HHC gummies are the way to go. There are no special techniques or tools needed to use HHC gummies. All you must do is remove the gummy from its packaging, place it in your mouth and enjoy.

The biggest consideration when using HHC gummies is finding the right potency for you. Most find a single gummy best, but it’s not uncommon for people to take multiple gummies or to cut gummies in half.

In general, orally ingesting cannabinoids like HHC offer the lowest bioavailability. This is because HHC must go through your digestive system before reaching your bloodstream. Some of the compounds won’t make it, and it takes longer for the ones that do to arrive. It may take up to two hours before you start feeling effects, so give yourself enough time before taking another gummy.

Benefits of HHC gummies

HHC gummies offer some unique benefits:

  • Gummies are convenient and discrete. You can take them anywhere and consume them in public without problems because they look like any other wellness gummies.
  • With gummies, you don’t have to worry about measuring out servings. Gummies offer a consistent serving in each gummy, and if you want to go for a lower serving, you can try subdividing the gummy to meet your serving needs.
  • Gummies are deliciously flavored. They are perfect if you prefer something more appealing on their tastebuds.

HHC Vapes

Vaping is the most efficient method of delivering HHC to your body. It’s fast-acting and has a high bioavailability, so more of the compounds reach your body’s systems faster. Vaping HHC is perfect for more experienced cannabinoid consumers looking for a more advanced method or those who want to feel HHC effects almost instantly.

Koi CBD offers high-quality HHC vape products, including convenient HHC vape carts that work seamlessly with most of the vape batteries currently on the market.

How to use HHC vapes

HHC vape carts are designed to pair with 510-thread batteries. Within each cartridge are an atomizer (heating element), a chamber (which holds the HHC-infused oil), and a mouthpiece (for you to take a draw). At its end are threads that allow you to screw the cart quickly and easily into a battery to power the heating element.

Once you attach the HHC cart to your battery, you’re ready to go. Some batteries turn on automatically when they detect you taking a draw from the cart’s mouthpiece. Others require 3 to 5 taps of a button to activate.

Another easier option are HHC disposable vapes. These come pre-filled and ready to go out of the box, no additional battery needed.

When you’re ready, inhale softly through the mouthpiece on the device. You should feel vapor entering your lungs. After a second or so, exhale. Then, repeat as desired, depending on how much HHC you’d like to consume. Remember to pace yourself and continually check in with how you feel before taking more draws.

Benefits of HHC vapes

Trying to decide between gummies and vapes? Here are several reasons why HHC vapes could be right for you:

  • Vapes are fast and efficient. The active compounds are delivered directly into the bloodstream through the capillaries in the lung’s air sacks. They don’t have to go through digestion or filtration, ensuring more HHC is absorbed into the body right away.
  • Vaping can be a relaxing and calming activity in itself. Combined with the euphoric benefits of HHC, vaping can be an enjoyable way to take the edge off and unwind.
  • HHC vapes are compact and portable, so they are easy and convenient to use on the road, especially because you don't need to worry about re-filling.

Who Should Buy HHC Products?

HHC certainly can offer many people a uniquely enjoyable way to clear their minds and unwind. At Koi, we aim to make the best quality and most flavorful HHC products that you enjoy and can trust. We take the necessary steps to ensure our products meet all standards and regulations, and each batch of our products is tested for quality and purity by an accredited third-party lab.

Our range of HHC products is appropriate for adults ages 21 years and above. While more research is needed, HHC products have shown so far to be well-tolerated. There haven't been any reports of life-threatening or severe side effects related to consuming HHC products.

With that said, you should do your due diligence and only buy HHC products that come from a reliable company.

And you should always talk with your doctor before adding any cannabinoid products, including HHC products, to your wellness routine. This is particularly important if you’re in any of the following situations:

  • If you have a health condition or long-term illnes
  • If you’re a pregnant or breastfeeding mothers
  • If you’re taking prescription medications

Also, you should avoid all cannabinoid products if you are subject to drug testing. While it’s still unclear whether HHC shows up on a drug test, it’s important to err on the side of caution and avoid using HHC if you are tested for THC use.

What to Consider When Buying HHC Products

The truth: Not all HHC products are the same. The industry lacks adequate regulations, so when it comes to HHC products, buying only safe and quality products is a critical factor for the best experience and effects.

Not all manufacturers are diligent, so you must do some research to find the best products and the most reliable brands. We have highlighted some factors you need to consider before buying HHC products to guarantee you get the best quality and safe HHC products.

Brand reputation

The very first consideration is to look for brand reputation. Look up to see how long a brand has been around, and whether they have quality and safety standards in place. And thanks to third-party review sites and honest and helpful customers, you should be able to easily find reviews about different HHC brands and products. Most HHC online shops even have a review section where customers can share their experiences with some products. See what others have to say.

Third-party testing

Third-party testing should be non-negotiable in your mind. It provides proof of the product's composition, purity, and safety. You shouldn’t purchase HHC products from brands or companies that don’t make the Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for their products easily accessible before buying the product. When perusing the CoA, also check if any traces of contaminants are found in the HHC products you intend to purchase.

Ingredients list

In the case that you want to be considerate about the ingredients you consume, check the product’s packaging or product page to see the list of ingredients. Ensure you know and understand each ingredient on the list. At Koi CBD, we only use the best quality and safest ingredients that enhance your experience. Avoid products with cheap fillers and additives as these can produce undesirable effects and have severe side effects.
