What is HHC? – Everything you need to know
Besides CBD, THC and many other cannabinoids, HHC is also a valuable component of the female hemp plant. What is HHC? How does it work? How does the production work? In the blog article we answer all your questions.
What is HHC?
HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) was discovered in the 1940s by chemist Roger Adams and is a naturally occurring cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Unlike CBD, it can cause psychoactive effects. As of 23.03.203, production and trafficking of HHC are no longer permitted in Austria, but possession and consumption remain unpunished. The Austrian Ministry of Health has included HHC in the Ordinance on New Psychoactive Substances.
How does the production work?
There is very little of HHC in the hemp plant. Therefore, it is much more sustainable to produce HHC from natural CBD. The molecular structure is 100% similar to natural HHC. There are always two variants in hexahydrocannabidiol, the R and the S variant. Only the R variant is interesting for the body. Therefore, the right ratio of S and R is important.
As with CBD, there are differences in quality here. Different agents can be used in the manufacturing process described.
It is important to work hygienically and professionally, because only a pure and high quality product is created.
