There are hundreds of cannabinoids available. And each one produces its own unique effects and benefits which allows users to curate their own experience. One of the newest products on the market is hexahydrocannbinol – otherwise known as HHC.
If you’re here, you’re likely wondering what HHC gummies are, if they can get you high, and what effects they might have. Here at Moonwlkr, we are experts in rare cannabinoids like HHC.
Let’s dive in with some of the basics first:
What is HHC?
HHC is yet another legal, hemp-derived cannabinoid found in small quantities in the hemp and cannabis plants. Since it’s found in such small quantities, it is often created in labs. This is done through a simple process of hydrogenation of THC. Basically… HHC is chemically identical to THC, but with 2 more hydrogen atoms. This makes HHC the most stable cannabinoid, and creates a very, very long shelf life.
HHC is known to be more potent than Delta 8, but slightly less potent than Delta 9, and provides the user with its own set of unique effects.
How does HHC compare to THC?
HHC is 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. However, there are key differences between HHC and THC.

What are HHC gummies?
HHC gummies are edible gummies that have been infused with HHC to produce a high effect. Sometimes, HHC gummies contain flavors and other additives. Other times, HHC is combined with other cannabinoids, like THC or CBD for a combined effect.
HHC gummies are just one of the many ways to experience this fascinating cannabinoid. Other popular ways include vapes and tinctures. Generally, gummies are infused with between 10-30mg of HHC distillate.
Just like any cannabinoid, the mode of consumption will alter your experience! But we’ll get to that shortly.
What are the effects of HHC gummies?
A majority of users have claimed that HHC causes a gradual increase in mood, altered head space and cognition, and increased activity compared to THC. The biggest difference seems to be the absence of grogginess and lethargy generally associated with THC.
The most interesting thing about HHC is that different dosages can potentially produce different highs. At a lower dose (10-20mg) the effects more closely resemble Delta 8. Expect to feel relaxed and mellow. At higher doses however (25-30mg), 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.
Do HHC gummies get you high?
Yes, HHC gummies will get you high! In fact, users often report a more upbeat, euphoric high than traditional THC. Taking a gummy will generally produce a longer, more intense high than vaping.
How long does an HHC gummy high last?
In general, the time frame of effects from HHC will be similar to most other THC products. The high from an HHC gummy should usually last anywhere between 2-3 hours. It should take between 30 minutes to 1 hour between consumption and the onset of effects.
However, it depends on many factors. Dosage, tolerance, and size are the variables that will determine the variance in experience from person to person.
HHC gummy reviews
So how does HHC really feel? We went right to the source and asked our users!
“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 and no “weed hangover”, HHC has become a go-to cannabinoid for daytime users.
“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
“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
“Finally I have found something that gives me the clear head feeling without the drowsiness. I’ve tried a few delta 8 variants and a Delta 9 and both make me super drowsy and tired. With this particular HHC (my first), I have not gotten tired at all! It took about an hour to kick in. At first I felt a little fuzzy and then giggly. I felt coherent but at the same time felt a little fixated on what I was doing. I do feel very clear headed, non drowsy and I also feel like I can get some things done! ” – Kip, 25mg HHC Gummies
Tips for buying HHC gummies
When it comes to buying HHC gummies, it’s important to do your due diligence. Since HHC is a rare cannabinoid only found in small quantities in nature, it is often created in labs. This means that most products are going to be semi-synthetic. That is not necessarily a bad thing… If done properly.
When HHC was initially discovered, there were no good ways to make it other than using heavy metals in the hydrogenation process. This means that harmful heavy metals were left over in the final product. NOT good. There are now safe and clean ways of creating HHC, but there are still some companies cutting corners and using substandard extraction methods.
Here are some things you should look for when buying HHC gummies:
- 3rd party lab tests for safety, purity, and potency. This should show the final product is clear of heavy metals and any other harmful contaminants.
- Quality ingredients. If there are more than 10-15 ingredients peppered with words you can’t pronounce, it’s best to stay away.
- Look for HHC derived from hemp
- Steer clear from any products not made in the USA
- Always look for product reviews
What are the types of HHC gummies
There are tons of HHC gummies out there offering different potency levels and a range of flavors. If you are new to HHC, it’s important to start small and increase your dose only after you become familiar with how it affects you individually.
Most gummies contain between 10-30mg of HHC. Here at Moonwlkr, each of our gummies contain 25mg of high quality hemp-derived HHC in an assortment of different flavors.
If you’re new, we recommend starting with half a gummy, and waiting at least 45 minutes before taking more. Some people will find that half a gummy is their sweet spot; while others may need as many as two.
How to store your HHC gummies
The great thing about HHC is that its shelf life is lightyears longer than THC or Delta 8. Still, it’s important to store your gummies properly for the best experience possible. Store them in a cool, dry place away from heat and light – the fridge is the perfect place!
