Does HHC Get You High? What HHC Feels Like

One of the latest additions to our industry is hexahydrocannabinol (HHC).  Already, HHC has got the entire hemp community talking.  HHC is unlike any other hemp derivative that’s available for purchase, and its effects are some of the most sought-after on the scene. 

Naturally, most people who are considering buying HHC products need to first know what it’s gonna feel like when they take it, in order to then decide whether or not its properties are going to provide what they’re looking for.

What is HHC?

Hexahydrocannabinol is a hydrogenated compound with remarkable chemical stability that exists in the seeds and pollen of the hemp plant.  Because it’s hydrogenated, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system in a way that’s quite different from other cannabinoids that we’re used to, working with different receptors found throughout the body. 

But, surprisingly, HHC compound has been shown to behave almost identically to delta 9 THC due to its overall properties that give it psychoactive effects and other unique capabilities that affect how we feel.

Will I Feel High with HHC?

Hexahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive cannabinoid that will get you high.  Despite its structural differences when compared to delta 9 THC, many people say that it gets you as high as the more familiar cannabinoid, because its properties are so similar.  Essentially, the high that’s possible with HHC is likely stronger than that which can be experienced with either delta 8 THC or delta 10 THC.

What is the High of HHC Like?

Unsurprisingly, the majority of people who use hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) say that the high feels just like the high associated with delta 9 THC -  makes them feel mellow, uplifted, and sometimes giggly.  This means that the psychoactive effects are stronger than a lot of other cannabinoids, so prepare to feel more intoxicated if those are the cannabinoids that you’re used to.  The high can make you feel quite “out of it”, so keep that in mind if you have commitments, and do not drive or operate machinery while under its influence.

What are the Effects of HHC?

Again, because hexahydrocannabinol behaves so similarly to delta 9 THC, it’s not surprising that the effects it seems to offer go beyond its psychoactive abilities.  Many people say that when they use HHC, they feel the same effects relating to nausea, appetite, pain, sleep, mood. and more.  Basically, if you’re someone who has used delta 9 THC, you will likely find that HHC feels very similar in just about every positive way.

What Determines How You Will Feel When Taking HHC?

We’ve been able to provide a general idea of how you might feel after taking hexahydrocannabinol (HHC), primarily in terms of the high that it can produce.  But, there are a some other key factors that affect the experience you have with HHC based on how your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) processes cannabinoids.

#1: Your Body’s Tolerance

Ultimately, each person’s body processes cannabinoids in a unique way, as is the case with CBD, delta 8 and all others.  There are variables within the endocannabinoid system that can change from one person to the next, for reasons that are not yet fully understood. 

This means that some people may feel ‘more high’ when taking HHC than others, and the dominant effects felt can vary between different people.  Another aspect that determines tolerance is how much you’ve consumed psychoactive cannabinoids in the past, with experienced users typically having a decent tolerance to HHC products.

#2: How Much You Take

The amount of HHC that you consume in one sitting will play a role in how strongly you feel its effects, and in particular, its psychoactive properties.  Further, the milligram strength of an HHC product will determine how potently the cannabinoid feels in the system. 

#3: The Delivery Method of HHC

Each delivery method affects how long the effects of HHC may be felt, how strongly they’re felt, how quickly they’re felt and other factors, which is why the product type you choose has a lot to do with how your HHC experience will feel overall.

  • HHC Vapes: HHC vapes include cartridges and disposable pens, both of which use the same mechanisms to deliver HHC into the body.  HHC vapes offer effects within minutes, that typically last for no more than 1 or 2 hours, while being quite potent.  This is due to the highly bioavailable nature of inhaling cannabinoids.

  • HHC Flower: HHC flower also allows us to inhale the cannabinoid in either the form of smoke or vapor, and so the effects are similar to vapes in terms of how long they are active, how long until they are felt and how strongly they are felt.  But one major difference is that vapes typically combine pure HHC with terpenes, while flower contains the entire chemical compound profile of hemp.  Therefore, the effects may be more balanced and widespread, largely due to the presence of many other cannabinoids.
  • HHC Dabs: HHC dabs refer to concentrates used with a dabbing device that flash-vaporizes them.  They are extremely potent, which is why they’re usually considered non-beginner-friendly.  The effects also activate even more quickly than vapes and flower.
  • HHC Tinctures: HHC tinctures are bottled oils that absorb below the tongue, through the sublingual tissue, offering effects a bit milder than inhalable products.  The effects kick in around 30 minutes, lasting for about 4 to 5 hours.
  • HHC Capsules: HHC capsules are ingested, which always delivers the longest-lasting effects – 8 hours or so.  The effects can take about 60 minutes before they’re fully active, and they produce a unique body high sensation that many users find to be extremely desirable.
  • HHC Edibles: HHC Edibles work just like capsules in terms of how long the effects can last and the body high experience they can offer.  But, it can take a little longer for them to become effective since there are more ingredients to be processed through digestion. 

  • #4: Type of Strain You Choose

    A HHC product’s strain makes a big difference, since each strain of hemp has its own unique terpene profile.  Plus, every terpene offers unique properties, along with a distinctive flavor and aroma.  Strains can fall into one of three categories:

  • Indica: Recognized for having a blissful mellowing effect, and also are perfect for evening use.
  • Sativa: Almost the opposite, sometimes offering an energizing sensation paired with euphoria.
  • Hybrid: A balance between the two, as they occur when an indica is crossed with a sativa.

  • Final HHC Feeling Thoughts

    Ultimately, how hexahydrocannabinol feels can vary between the individual based on a number of factors, but overall, its effects are capable of giving you a psychoactive response that’s very similar to that of delta 9 THC.
