Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is one of many cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. HHC is gaining popularity in the Czech Republic. HHC is said to have the same effects as THC, or very similar. What about cannabinoids? In the next lines, we will be focusing on this.
Many questions surround this cannabinoid. This is due to a general lack of awareness in both the scientific and general public about this cannabinoid.
History of HHC
HHC was created for the first time in 1944 by Roger Adams, an American chemist who added hydrogen molecules into Delta 9 THC.
HYDROGENATION – This process does not only involve the production of cannabinoids. It can be found, for instance, in margarine production. THC can be “converted” by hydrogenation to HHC in our case. We won’t go through the actual chemical process. We do include a link to explain the hydrogenation process for curious heads (source Wikipedia).
Adams created HHC by combining THC and marijuana. HHC can be obtained today from CBD. Why is this so? This question has a simple answer. The legal production of cannabis products must contain less than 1% THC (in the Czech Republic). HHC does not contain THC.
What is HHC?
HHC isn’t just a man-made drug. HHC is found in small quantities in cannabis. It would be very expensive to extract HHC from hemp. Therefore, hydrogenation was used to produce HHC.
