There seems to always be a new cannabinoid on the block in recent years. Lately, HHCP has come to the forefront. But, what is HHCP? In this blog, we’re getting into every detail of Hydrogenated Hexahydrocannabinol. Please keep reading to learn about the effects of HHCP, how it’s made, and more.
What Is HHCP?
Hydrogenated Hexahydrocannabinol, or HHCP, is a cannabinoid with effects similar to THC. However, though THC & HHCP share similar psychoactive effects, they have some big differences. Unlike THC and CBD, HHCP is not naturally found in the cannabis plant. HHCP is synthetic, and it is made by hydrogenating THCp.
Is HHCP Legal in the US?
Many HHCP products available today are created from naturally occurring Delta 8 THC in hemp. This makes the product federally compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. To be fully federally legal, the hemp must be grown, cannabinoids extracted, and products made entirely in the USA.
Some states have outlawed the use of HHCP, you can see the legality map below to check for your state.
The Science & How It’s Made
It is important to understand the production process of HHCP; this has a lot to do with understanding the effects of the cannabinoid. HHCP is an entirely synthetic cannabinoid that exists by hydrogenating the naturally occurring THCp.
What makes HHCP so captivating? The process of making HHCP affects its molecular structure, consisting of 7 carbon atoms as opposed to HHC’s 5. This heightens its attraction to the CB1 endocannabinoid receptor. In simple terms, because of this heightened receptivity, HHCP can be up to 30 times more powerful than HHC.
Unlike Delta 9 THC, HHC-P offers a balanced experience that’s potent yet manageable. Here’s what you can expect:
- Stress and anxiety relief
- Enhanced mood
- Increased appetite
- A lasting sense of relaxation and euphoria
Remember, though, that HHCP has heightened attraction to our CB1 receptors. For some, HHCP may be quite potent. As such, we always advise that you start with a small dose, pay attention to its effects, and slowly and incrementally work your way up if you choose.
Drug Tests & HHCP
If you’re someone who needs to pass a drug test for any reason, you should stay away from HHCP. This cannabinoid will most certainly show up on a regular 5-panel drug test, causing you to have positive results for THC.
How To Use HHCP
HHCP is a great option for anybody in a cannabis-illegal state. It provides well-balanced effects and is fully federally legal. HHCP is available in many different forms, ranging from flower to edibles to disposable vapes. You can find a variety of these products in any Mr. Nice Guys location.
