Hemp’s remarkable benefits are available more now than ever. In the last few years, the industry has made innovative strides, delivering new cannabinoids that can help you feel and function better in unique ways. Among these new arrivals is Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC). As is the case with other cannabinoids, HHC has generated enthusiasm and excitement in a short amount of time. Still, many people haven’t heard of HHC or are looking to learn more about its benefits.
As an industry-leading hemp cannabinoid brand, we at Koi have always felt it important to deliver the latest the plant has to offer. That’s why we’re among the first to produce an exciting range of HHC products, including our line of HHC gummies. And we always strive to make sure you, our customers, receive as much information as possible about these products and the benefits they can bring to your day.
What is HHC?
HHC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, including hemp. While it's been known by scientists for decades, only recently has it been better understood and made available to promote everyday wellness.
It is a minor cannabinoid, which means its produced by the plant in minute amounts. To keep up with the growing demand for HHC, manufacturers have developed safe ways of producing HHC by converting other more abundant naturally occurring cannabinoids like CBD into HHC.
HHC stands out from other cannabinoids because it tends to offer uplifting, mildly relaxing effects without any cerebral fogginess. As a result, it has emerged as an excellent candidate for quieting a busy mind, unwinding with friends, or getting lost in a creative project.
HHC Vs. THC – What’s the Difference?
HHC and THC are pretty similar. They share an almost identical molecular structure. But there are some key differences as well. At the chemical level, HHC has two additional hydrogenated carbons, while THC has a missing ester atom and carbon bond.
These molecular differences make HHC a far more stable compound than THC, so it has stronger resistance to heat and U.V., resulting in longer shelf life.
As far as effects, HHC and THC tend to deliver the same types of effects, but HHC to a lesser degree. HHC has more mildly relaxing and clear-minded uplifting effects that make HHC perfect for early evening hangouts with friends, knocking out chores at home, or sparking creativity.
How is HHC Produced?
HHC is a natural compound produced by the hemp plant. But only in small amounts. With the ever-increasing demand, we’ve found more effective methods to safely produce HHC from other hemp compounds.
The creation of HHC is a multi-step process that in our case starts with naturally occurring hemp-derived CBD. A proprietary method involving acids and filtration transforms the CBD compounds into HHC so we can make HHC products like HHC gummies and HHC vapes.

How Do HHC Gummies Work?
Researchers are still discovering the array of benefits that HHC can offer. But given that it’s a cannabinoid, it’s known to elicit its unique effects through its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is responsible for keeping a long list of functions crucial to how we feel and function balanced.
There’s evidence to suggest that HHC has the capability of binding to the endocannabinoid system’s two primary cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. This suggests that HHC could help address different issues simultaneously.

You need to be careful when shopping for HHC gummies. Some hemp product production processes are clouded in mystery, increasing the myth and misunderstanding of hemp products. Not over here. We have full, batch-level transparency of our HHC gummies, so you get all the information you need about the HHC gummies you’re considering.

How to Get the Most Out of Koi HHC Gummies
Our gummies are formulated to deliver the best effects and results, and there are a few things you can try to maximize your experience.
Take HHC gummies at the right time
HHC gummies have a unique relaxing effect that is slightly different from what you expect from delta 9 gummies which have a noticeably uplifting effect. Picking when to consume the gummies can ensure you get the desired results at the right time. Because of the calming yet clear-minded effects of the gummies, we recommend taking them during the day or evening when you want to unwind and yet stay present. This might be during an afternoon get-together with family, a relaxing session of book reading, or during a creative break.
Take the right amount
Taking the right amount of HHC is important for having a good experience. While not as potent as some other cannabinoids, taking too much can be an uncomfortable experience. If you’re new, we suggest you start with a lower concentration and take a half gummy at first, observe how your body responds after a couple of hours, and adjust your servings accordingly.
What to Look For When Buying the Best HHC Gummies
Most people who have used HHC gummies have had great experiences. But that doesn’t mean you should pick the first gummies you lay your eyes on. Doing some due diligence could keep you from picking substandard gummies that are either ineffective or made with unhealthy ingredients. Here are a few factors to consider when choosing HHC gummies.
The very first thing to check when buying HHC gummies is federal compliance. As a hemp-derived compound, HHC is federally legal. But HHC products need to meet the stipulations outlined in the 2018 Farm Bill. The gummies should contain no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC content by dry weight, and the extract used to produce HHC should be sourced from hemp.
Safety is the top priority with cannabinoid products. With some manufacturers opting for lower standards, landing on a substandard product is easier than you might think. When purchasing HHC gummies, investigate the brand’s safety and testing processes, the ingredients used, the source of the hemp extract, and the manufacturing processes to ensure you pick the best quality HHC gummies.
Company reputation and customers’ review
One way to get an idea of how effective HHC gummies are is by looking at how well-known the brand is. You can also look at how well-reviewed its products are by consumers. Third-party review websites are also great places to forage for genuine customer reviews to give you an idea of what to expect before buying HHC gummies.
Third-party lab reports
Third-party testing has become more of a standard in the hemp industry. Every diligent manufacturer ensures their products are tested by a reputable third-party lab, preferably ISO-certified. After testing, manufacturers should make the certificates of analysis provided by the labs easily accessible to HHC gummy buyers. The CoA offers you vital details like the composition of the gummies, a contaminants profile, and the concentration of HHC in the gummies. Not finding a third-party report is a red flag.
HHC gummies are made up of more than HHC. You should that the ingredients used are high quality and safe for human consumption. Some brands use cheap additives and fillers that might cause negative side effects.
Who Should Buy HHC Gummies?
Our HHC gummies are safe and available for all adults 21 years and older in the U.S. The gummies are made from quality hemp extract and crafted using the best manufacturing practices.
However, because of the uplifting and relaxing effects of the gummies, it’s not recommended to use them when driving or operating heavy equipment.
We recommend that anyone with long-term illnesses practice extra caution and consult a doctor before adding any cannabinoid products, including HHC gummies, to their wellness and relaxation routine. Likewise, pregnant women, those planning to start families soon, and those breastfeeding should also proceed cautiously and talk with their doctor before they start taking HHC gummies.
Are There Possible Side Effects After Taking HHC Gummies?
HHC is generally well-tolerated by most people. Most people that use HHC gummies report having an enjoyable time, however, minor temporary side effects can occur in rare cases.
Some of the side effects that have been reported after consuming HHC gummies include:
- Dry mouth
- Increased appetite
- Red eyes
Most of the side effects have been reported by those new to HHC gummies. In most cases, these side effects are due to consuming low-quality HHC gummies made with unsafe ingredients and fillers or taking too much HHC at one time.
Should you experience any of the above side effects, we recommend you adjust your HHC gummies servings downwards. Also, ensure you purchase your gummies from reputable brands with comprehensive third-party reports.
Are HHC Gummies Intoxicating?
HHC gummies offer a unique and noticeable uplifting effect. The uplifting effect of HHC gummies is generally less potent and can be an enjoyable feeling to start and end your day. Most people choose to take HHC gummies when they want to have a calming afternoon, unwind in the evening, or improve focus and get a clear mind.
However, everyone processes cannabinoids differently, so your experience with HHC gummies can vary from those of others.
Will HHC Gummies Show Up on a Drug Test?
Those subject to drug testing should refrain from using any cannabinoid products, including HHC gummies. While it’s still unclear whether HHC is detectable on a drug test, there’s no clear evidence showing that it won’t show up.
HHC is unique in various ways and may not break down in the body the same way that THC does. Anecdotal evidence indicates that unlike delta 8, 9, and 10, HHC doesn’t metabolize into 11-hydroxy-THC, the metabolite that most drug panels test for, and that opens a window of doubt as to whether HHC gummies would show up on drug tests.
However, it’s better to err on the side of caution and avoid using HHC if you’re subject to testing.
