What is HHC?
HHC is quite different from the rest of the available products in the market. It’s not actually a THC compound at all, but it can give you a THC-like experience with more euphoria.
HHC occurs naturally in hemp and marijuana plants in small concentrations. In order to create enough for retail, most HHC products are manufactured in a laboratory with sophisticated equipment.
- Relief from anxiety.
- Cerebral and bodily intoxication.
- Reduced inflammation.
- Alleviation of nausea and vomiting.
- Improved sleep.
Having a full grasp of HHC can be somewhat complicated given it just recently hit the market. Presently, just a few retailers have it for sale and mostly in the form of vape carts. HHC is said to offer plenty of potentials, so don’t be surprised when you begin to hear more about the cannabinoid.
Its effect is similar to THC, yet anecdotal evidence suggests it doesn’t show up on standard drug tests (unconfirmed).
HHC is also the most stable form of THC as it’s super resistant to oxidation, heat, and UV light — so you don’t have to worry as much about your stash degrading and losing its potency.
The appropriate dose of any psychoactive substance is dependent on various factors, such as age, weight, and tolerance levels.
As a new user of HHC, you might not know your tolerance levels, but as a general guide, its potency lies somewhere between the mellower high of delta 8 (D8) and the more intense delta 9 THC (D9).
Dosing: How much Delta 8 THC Should I Take?
Always start on the low end until you know what you’re getting into and how your body will respond.
Common Delta 8 Dosing
- Low dose: 10 – 20 mg per serving
- Moderate dose: 20 – 50 mg per serving
- Heavy dose: 50 – 100 mg per serving
If you’re a relatively experienced user of one or the other, taking a similar or slightly lower dose of HHC would be a good starting point.
If you’re entirely new to THC and its cannabinoids, then it’s best to take a small amount, or perhaps even a microdose (1–2 mg), before gradually working your way up to larger ones.
