Is there an HHC hangover?
Is there an HHC hangover?
HHC is a cannabinoid that comes from hemp and has a lot of therapeutic benefits. However, because it is a new cannabinoid, many people don’t know much about it. Here’s everything you need to know about HHC, including what it is, its effects, and a few of its benefits. It also talks about its potency, legal status, and safety.
What does HHC stand for?
As you think, HHC doesn’t sound like anything new. It was made in 1944 when a chemist mixed Delta-9 THC with a few hydrogen molecules. Through the process of hydrogenation, THC turns into HHC, just like vegetable oil is turns into margarine through the same process. When hemp plants are grown legally, they have a small amount of THC. These days, HHC comes from these plants.
HHC is part of a massive wave of other hemp-derived cannabinoids, like delta-8 THC, THC-O, and delta-10 THC. These other cannabinoids come from hemp. HHC is hard to find out of all of them. However, it’s important to remember that hemp-derived HHC isn’t THC. It only has THC-like effects.
The number of hemp companies looking into HHC because of its similarity to delta-8 THC is rising as more and more states try to ban it. Unlike delta-8 THC, it doesn’t have THC at all. This means it has more promise and appeal in terms of the law.
Does HHC make you feel high?
Yes, HHC makes you high. If you’ve tried other cannabinoids, like CBD, delta-8 THC, or delta-9 THC, HHC will be different. Remember that each person’s experience is different based on their body type, tolerance for cannabis, and overall health.
Some users say they feel a smooth and cerebral “high,” which is more mellow than delta-9 but more energetic than delta-8. Most people also say that HHC is more powerful than delta 8 but less potent than delta-9.
What are the signs of a hangover?
Symptoms of a hangover are:
- Depression, anxiety, or much anger.
- The sleep was a little off.
- It can make you feel dizzy or have a feeling of moving when you’re not.
- It’s hard to stay awake or get up when tired.
- There was a headache, red eyes, and sensitivity to light and sound, making it hard to see and hear.
- Rapid heartbeat; pulse and blood pressure rise.
- The pain and weakness in the muscles and joints.
- Nausea, vomiting, and pain in the stomach.
- Smells of sweat and thirst.
Memory, concentration, and coordination problems can also happen when having a stormy night. How bad your symptoms are will depend on how much you drank and how long you drank. But your health and other things also play a part. Some people have a hangover even after having one drink, which can last for a while. Other people who drink a lot don’t have problems.
Is HHC safe?
When it comes to HHC, there aren’t any studies that show it is safe right now. That means that HHC’s safety is unknown. There may be consequences that we don’t know about yet in the long run. However, there haven’t been any reports of side effects from taking this medicine. It doesn’t matter if HHC itself is safe or not. We still need to think about how these cannabinoids are made. As we said before, HHC is only made by converting CBD.
That means that all of the HHC on the market comes from dangerous chemical processes. This means there’s a chance that toxic chemicals could end up in the finished product. With professional THC and CBD concentrates, strict rules and tests ensure the product is safe. HHC is new, so there aren’t any standardized tests to show how well people do.
That means that any HHC product you buy could have dangerous chemicals inside of it, so be careful. According to the real world: Underground labs make and sell HHC-based goods.
Is HHC legal?
Like most cannabinoids made from hemp, HHC isn’t clear on the law. Because it’s made from hemp and doesn’t have any THC, it’s legal on a federal level and is likely to stay that way on the state level, too. Further, because HHC is found in hemp plants’ seeds and pollen, it’s hemp-extraction and non-synthetic, making it even more legal.
However, some people aren’t sure if it’s even legal. The Federal Analog Act says that any substance with the same effects as a Schedule I drug (like delta-9 THC) would also be a Schedule I drug. HHC could be subject to this law. This means that because THC is illegal on a federal level, HHC would be unlawful. But, all things being equal, HHC is legal in the area between legal hemp and illegal cannabis, which is where HHC is. Many states may make it illegal in the same way they make it illegal for delta-8 THC. For the time being, you can buy HHC legally.
The effects and benefits of HHC
A lack of scientific evidence means that the apparent benefits and effects of the HHC cannabinoid are primarily based on stories. People who have used it say it has the same effects as THC, like euphoria, hearing and vision changes, and thinking changes. People, in general, can expect to feel more relaxed when they use delta-8-THC. However, some people say they are more alert and have a better sense of direction. An old study from 1977 looked at how HHC made rats feel. The researchers found that the cannabinoid could have similarities to narcotic painkillers, but there were significant differences. HHC made people sleep longer by between 80% and 700%. The researchers also said that the cannabinoid had delta-9-THC-like effects on the mice but with a less-powerful impact on the body.
In 2011, a study looked at two HHC analogs, LYR-7 and LYR-8. The compounds might stop tumor cell growth and angiogenesis, which is a big part of making tumors.
Overall, there isn’t anything else to link HHC to the benefits manufacturers say it can help with. There aren’t any studies on humans that can give us any clues.
It could also have these other benefits, besides the idea that it could help with the pain.
- Getting rid of anxiety
- Intoxication of the brain and body
- Alleviation of sickness and vomiting
- A better night’s rest.
There will be many more products with HHC because people start to use it, and manufacturers start to see its value. If delta-9-THC is 80 percent as strong as HHC, people with low THC tolerance should be careful when using HHC. Make sure you don’t use more than 3-5mg at first to see how it affects your body and mind.
People should also keep in mind that the legal status of HHC might change at some point in the future. If you think your state might make it illegal one day, we suggest you get your products now, so you don’t have to worry about it (even though that seems unlikely).
All in all, HHC might be one of the best new things in the hemp world in 2021, along with Delta-8, which many people have already tried and love. In the same way that there’s still a lot more to do, the future of HHC looks good.
