HHC? What is it?


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). Hydrogenation isn’t limited to cannabinoid production. A similar process is used to convert vegetable oil to margarine. 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. How is HHC Made? It’s a many-step process. First, CBD is extracted from raw hemp, distilled and isolated in a powder form. From there, things get a little more complicated. Hemp-derived CBD acts as the base for the chemical reaction that creates HHC.
