The hemp industry is expanding dramatically and more and more new psychoactive cannabinoids are coming into the hemp market. Due to a lot of new compounds, it’s usually hard to remember every cannabinoid with its properties and effects.
A new emerging cannabinoid, HHC, has gained a lot of attention. That’s why in this article, we have compared this compound in terms of potency with some popular compounds.
What Is HHC Distillate?
HHC Distillate is a highly refined extract produced by the distillation method. It is a golden, viscous oil that contains around 90 percent HHC as well as minor cannabinoids. HHC, also known as Hexahydrocannabinol, was identified in 1947 by American chemist Roger Adams, who hydrogenated Delta 9 THC by adding hydrogen molecules to it.
HHC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that appears to exhibit all of the other features we associate with Delta 9 THC, such as nausea, emotional and physical discomfort, hunger, and overall mood elevation, but has a milder effect than Delta 9 THC. It is a highly stable semi-synthetic hydrogenated cannabinoid that is a hydrogenated version of THC.
How Strong is HHC Distillate Compared To Other Cannabinoids?
HHC vs. HHCO
HHC and HHCO are both cannabinoids with similar names because they are basically the same. The last letter of HHCO signifies an acetate added to hemp-derived Hexaydrocannabinol (HHC), making its effects stronger than its predecessor.
They both have powerful physical and emotional advantages, ranging from physical relaxation and anti-inflammatory properties to calming and anxiety reduction.
HHCO is unquestionably more potent than HHC. It’s even referred to as Super HHC. This molecule is intended to be even stronger than Delta 9 THC. Therefore, take with caution if you aren’t acclimated to the psychoactive effects on your body.
HHC vs. HHCP
Both cannabinoids are new to the hemp market and also have similarities in their names, HHC and HHCP. Both cannabinoids can be derived from the hemp but in least amounts that’s why producers have to make them in the lab through various processes.
They both have powerful physical and mental effects, ranging from physical relaxation and anti-inflammatory properties to calming and anxiety reduction.
The inclusion of two extra carbons in the chemical structure of HHCP distinguishes it from HHC. HHCP has seven carbons on its alkyl side chain as opposed to HHC’s five. Because it contains two more carbons than HHC, HHCP is far more potent and active.
HHC vs. Delta 8 THC
HHC and Delta 8 THC are both psychoactive cannabinoids and can be derived from hemp or marijuana plants. Although, HHC can also be produced by chemists through hydrogenating Delta 9 THC molecules in the laboratory.
HHC is said to have similar effects as Delta 8 THC, despite the fact that the two chemicals are significantly different. HHC is comparable to Delta 8 THC in that users may feel more at calmness.
In terms of potency, HHC is stronger and more active on CB1 receptors than Delta 8 THC. Although they both are strong but due to the hydrogenated version of Delta 9 THC, HHC is quite potent and active on the body’s receptors.
HHC vs. Delta 9 THC
Delta 9 THC is the most abundant and psychoactive compound in marijuana as well as in hemp. HHC can also be derived from hemp but in very least amounts. But producers can make HHC by hydrogenating Delta 9 THC molecules in the laboratory.
Despite the fact that the two molecules are chemically extremely different, HHC is said to have comparable psychoactive effects to Delta 9 THC.
In terms of potency, Delta 9 THC is slightly more powerful and active than HHC. HHC has roughly 70 percent to 80 percent of the potency of Delta 9 THC. However, some sensitive users report that HHC is more powerful than Delta 9 THC.
HHC vs. Delta 10 THC
Delta 10 THC is among the few compounds that we are only now becoming aware of. Delta 10 THC is considered to be approximately 70 percent as psychoactive as Delta 9 THC, which is something that it shares in common with Delta 8 THC.
Delta 8 THC effects are frequently connected with those of an Indica strain, but Delta 10 THC is recognized as the Sativa-like cannabinoid, providing a more uplifting sensation.
HHC is therefore more potent than Delta 10 THC, and its psychoactive qualities appear to provide a sense of euphoria and inner bliss. This also means that HHC products may cause a consumer to feel groggier than Delta 10 THC.
So this is the potency comparison article of HHC with some popular and psychoactive cannabinoids. To conclude, HHC is a psychoactive cannabinoid that is more powerful and active than Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC but not from HHCO, HHCP, and Delta 9 THC. However, if you consume more doses of HHC, you could still get similar effects to Delta 9 THC and HHCO.
