Does HHC Get You High?


The short answer is yes, HHC does get you high. It is a psychoactive cannabinoid, therefore it will produce THC-like effects. For a full explanation, we urge you to continue reading to learn more about this special compound.

Psychoactive cannabinoids have become the latest "buzz" in the hemp industry, and HHC is one that happens to be gaining a significant amount of attention. Since it's new to many people, there are more than a handful of questions and concerns, like what it is, how it's made, and if it'll even show up on a drug test. While those are definitely some questions that need to be answered, the most popular question is if HHC will get you high. We'll answer all of that and more in this post.

What Is HHC and How Is It Made?

Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC, HXC) is a hemp-derived cannabinoid that was not grown but created by chemist, Roger Adams. The American chemist created HHC in 1944 by adding hydrogen molecules to Delta 9, the same cannabinoid found in marijuana that is responsible for producing potent psychoactive effects. Through a special process, referred to as hydrogenation, the hydrogen molecule is added to Delta 9, and as a result, it is then converted to HHC (hexahydrocannabinol).

Will HHC Show Up on A Drug Test?

Although HHC isn't technically a form of THC, yet still a psychoactive cannabinoid, passing a drug test is possible. At this time, state agencies are still trying to learn more about many of these hemp-derived cannabinoids, Delta 8 being one of them. Unfortunately, as it is one of the most popular psychoactive cannabinoids derived from hemp, it is receiving the most attention. As a result, some states have already explicitly banned Delta 8, making cannabinoids like HHC, which isn't a THC compound, that much more of a viable option.

While passing a drug test using HHC is possible, the information on rather you will pass or fail is quite conflicting. We encourage anyone using a psychoactive cannabinoid to prepare or discontinue use before taking a test, as new drug testing software is beginning to be used that can detect more cannabinoids, instead of detecting THC in general.

Does HHC Get You High?

Like all psychoactive cannabinoids, HHC will get you high too. Though consumers and researchers have shared that HHC is less potent, its psychoactive effects are more tolerable than Delta 9, and even Delta 8 for that matter. But, in terms of getting high and feeling its effects, yes, you most certainly will feel it and receive a unique "high". How high you get, on the other hand, totally depends on how much of a dose you use, your weight, age, individual tolerance, among other factors.
