HHC Hexahydrocannabinol Leafly

If you haven’t read Leafly’s Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) article yet, you might take a moment to get up to speed. In What is HHC, Leafly states the following about this remarkable cannabinoid:

HHC was first created in 1944 by the American chemist Roger Adams, when he added hydrogen molecules to Delta-9 THC. This process, known as hydrogenation, converts THC to hexahydrocannabinol (HHC).

While Adams created HHC from conventional cannabis-derived THC, these days the cannabinoid is typically derived through a process that begins with hemp, the low-THC cannabis plant that was made federally legal by Congress in the 2018 farm bill.

The article then goes into depth about how HHC is made. Regarding safety, Leafly said:

He told Leafly HHC can be produced safely in a well-equipped laboratory.

Other questions and concerns such as legalities surrounding HHC, the effects of HHC and more were covered throughout the article.
