Does HHC Get You High? Yes. Here’s How It Feels

Does HHC Get You High? Yes. Here’s How It Feels

Jan 9, 2023 | 0 comments

There are hundreds of cannabinoids available. And each one produces its own unique effects and benefits that give users their own personal experience. One of the newest products on the market is hexahydrocannbinol – otherwise known as HHC.

If you’re new to HHC you may be wondering what it is, if it can get you high, and what the high might feel like.

Keep reading to find out:

When you take in a dose of HHC, a high similar to THC is produced, but with an overall relaxing feeling, like the high some users experience with Delta 8 THC. HHC is a perfect blend. Users of HHC usually experience a euphoric “high”.

Now, let’s start with some of the basics:

What is HHC?

HHC is short for Hydrohexahydrocannabinol. Each cannabinoid has a scientific name. HHC is the abbreviated version of this particular variety.

HHC is a legal, hemp-derived cannabinoid found in small quantities in the leaves and flowers of cannabis and hemp plants. With so many cannabinoids out there these days, it can be overwhelming to keep track. But all cannabinoids are really just 3 elements: carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. What makes each one unique is the way these chemical elements are assembled together. Slight variations in their chemical structure can dramatically alter the “tone” of the experience.

HHC is a hydrogen-fuelled cannabinoid. HHC contains two more hydrogen atoms than THC. Virtually everything else is identical between HHC and THC. These seemingly minor differences in chemical structure can have significant implications. These two extra hydrogen atoms that HHC possess makes it the most stable cannabinoid possible, giving it a substantially longer shelf-life than THC or Delta 8. A lot longer. It’s the perfect apocalypse ready cannabinoid.

In addition to its extended shelf life, HHC offers a few minor differences in effects and experience.

How is HHC created?

Tiny concentrations of HHC appear when THC oxidizes into CBN over a long period. Because there is so little found naturally in cannabis, HHC is often created in labs. This creation is done through a simple process of hydrogenation of THC. Hydrogenation of THC is successfully completed from a chemical saturation of the hydrogen atoms. The atoms are exposed to a nickel or zinc catalyst, which converts into HHC. The additional hydrogen atoms for HHC allows the compound to be more stable and to have a longer shelf-life compared to THC.

Is HHC the same thing as THC?

While there are many similarities, there are distinct differences between HHC and THC. The main difference is that HHC has two additional hydrogen atoms compared to THC. The two extra hydrogen atoms allow for an extra long shelf life compared to other products.

HHC is also semi-synthetic which is why it’s technically a legal hemp extraction.

Does HHC get you high?

Yes, HHC does get you high. And just like THC, that high feeling is going to affect everyone differently. The high lasts about two to three hours depending on a few factors. These factors include how much is taken, how the body processes HHC, and how often HHC is used along with other products.

Do HHC Gummies Get You High?

The short answer is… Yes! And just like THC, everyone’s experience is going to be different. The high lasts about two to three hours depending on a few factors. These factors include how much is taken, how the body processes HHC, and how often HHC is used along with other products.

A majority of users have claimed that it causes a gradual increase in mood, altered head space and cognition, and increased activity compared to other products.

What does an HHC high feel like?

HHC causes a high similar to THC and Delta-8. This is due to the fact that all three cannabinoids have five-carbon side chains meaning that they attach efficiently to your cannabinoid receptors. A majority of users have claimed that it causes a gradual increase in mood, altered head space and cognition, and increased activity compared to other products.

If you’ve used other cannabinoids before – such as Delta 8 – the effects won’t be unfamiliar. But there are key differences. Firstly, HHC is known to be about 1.5x stronger than Delta 8. In terms of effects, HHC is known to produce a more creative, upbeat, mind-expanding high; whereas Delta 8 is known for its very chilled out profile.

The most interesting thing about HHC is that different dosages can potentially produce different highs. At a lower dose, the effects more closely resemble Delta 8. Expect to feel relaxed and mellow. At higher doses however, the effects transition towards a more energetic state. Users report taking HHC in order to open up the mind, to view problems or situations from an entirely new perspective, and even to help enter creative flow states.

What are the Benefits of HHC?

Some of the early reported user benefits of HHC can include:

  • An energy-like euphoria
  • Enhanced mood
  • Enhanced senses
  • Eases nausea and vomiting
  • May increase appetite

How potent is HHC?

The strength or potency of a cannabinoid comes down to its ability to bind with the endocannabinoid receptors present throughout our body and brain. This is where the chemical structure of the cannabinoid comes into play. 

We’re not going to go AP Chemistry on you, so here’s the most important rule of thumb: the more carbons in the chemical structure, the stronger the psychoactive effects. Any form of THC that has more than 3 carbons has psychoactive effects. 

HHC has 5 carbon atoms and is slightly stronger than Delta 8, but not quite as powerful as Delta 9. It’s thought to be roughly 70-80% the strength of THC. If you’re looking for a cannabinoid with comparable effects to THC that’s likely legal in your state, HHC might be right for you. Research is in its infancy, but anecdotal and consumer reports show overwhelmingly positive outcomes from consuming HHC products.   

HHC Reviews

Sometimes the best way to know what an HHC high feels like and how it compares to other products is to read user review. To help you determine what an HHC high really might feel like in action for you, we asked our customers!

“The wife and I were looking to start a daily regimen but were a little off. Now that I ordered and we tried the HHC gummies sampler, we were blown away!! This is the cannabinoid we have been waiting for. It put us in an overall good mood, gave me lots of energy and we both were able to perform our daily tasks at work.” – Will, 25mg HHC gummies

“As for the high, it is way less of a body high and more of a headspace high. I felt uplifted, creative and really reflective. These gummies put me in a euphoric state of mind where everything is calm and very pleasant.” – Miguel, 25mg HHC gummies

Because of the uplifting sativa-like effects, HHC has become a go-to cannabinoid for daytime users.

“HHC is a way better option for me during the day. It’s smooth and uplifting. Even with my regular D9 use, I just take one of the HHC gummies. I will definitely be adding this to my regimen. It is a very euphoric high more in line with Delta 9 . I feel really happy and kind of silly. As I walk I feel like I am on the moon.”  – R.S., 25mg HHC Gummies

Users claim that HHC has a “cleaner” high than traditional cannabis, with no hangovers.

“This gives me the absolute perfect feeling. Energized, happy, relaxed, it’s hard to describe. D8 and D9 knock me out if I eat even 12.5 mg, but this doesn’t” – Paige, 25mg HHC Gummies

“The high is mellow, not overpowering but very focused! A great sativa like feeling, with no anxiety or paranoia. Happy and euphoric. There was really no “comedown” and I was able to continue my day without feeling groggy.” Tabitha, 25mg HHC gummies

“Unlike Delta-8, these don’t leave you feeling groggy or sleepy, which is a common effect for many with it.”  – Miguel 25mg HHC Gummies
