What Are the Differences between HHC & Delta-9 Hemp Derived THC?
In the simplest explanation, HHC & Delta-9 THC differ in that you take the Delta-9 THC atoms and replace them with double bonds of hydrogen atoms to create HHC. This process was discovered in 1944 by American Chemist, Roger Adams. Although HHC has been known to be less potent than Delta-9 THC whether derived from the cannabis or hemp plant, HHC has a host of unique ways that consumers may want to choose HHC over Delta-9 THC. Aside from how the chemical makeup is different, people have reported that HHC doesn’t have the same level of potency that Delta-9 has as well as Delta 9 not lasting as long as HHC.
What are some of the reported benefits of using HHC over Delta-9 THC
- HHC lasts much longer than Delta-9 THC
- HHC has been reported to be great for a sleep aid due to its potency and longevity
- Less psychoactive which gives it the edge for daytime use or a more subtle sleep aid
- Stronger than Delta-8 THC

What Are The Effects of HHC?
There's now plenty of data and empirical evidence showing the advantages and effects of the different cannabinoids such as HHC, Delta-8 THC, and Delta-9 THC.

How Is HHC Made?
HHC is made by combining two hydrogen molecules with the Delta-9 THC cannabinoid which binds to the molecule and makes it more stable which improves the "stability and resistance to thermo-oxidative breakdown". This process is called hydrogenation and was patented in 1947 after it was discovered by famous chemist Roger Adams. With discoveries like this that are finally being utilized today to transform major compounds within the hemp and cannabis plant into the lesser known cannabinoids, that without science we may not have regular access to. New THC products are more readily available to the general public and can be enjoyed by those within legal states.
Will I Pass A Drug Test Using HHC?
This is going to be the simplest explanation that we give…no….you will likely NOT pass a drug test using any hemp derived THC products and even more likely to have a failure with traditional marijuana products. Even though what you’re smoking/ingesting is not from the typical cannabis plant, drug tests today are not sophisticated enough to distinguish between the different types of THC’s and whether they are derived from the cannabis plant or the hemp plant. If you’re about to take a drug test for any reason, we strongly recommend that you do not take any type of THC products, including those that are hemp derived. As always we suggest you consult a medical professional for the best answers on this topic or just wait till your company stops drug testing you. You’re welcome!

Our reviewers collectively have said that they have taken our HHC products before bed and had some of the best sleep of their lives and additionally for those that have taken this during the day felt a very consistent and uplifting effect that was sustainable and not overwhelming unlike other cannabinoids.
How Long Does HHC Stay In Your System?
I our research, HHC will stay in your system for 10 to 15 days for most users, however we strongly recommend that you consult a medical professional first mainly due to the differences with everyone's bodies and metabolisms, the rate at which your body will be able to show this cannabinoid in your system really depends on you and your lifestyle/body makeup. A doctor will be able to tell you solid answers better than a cannablog can. If you’re worried about a drug test and your potential use or past use of HHC, then the best solution is to use responsibly at the correct time for you with an appropriate dosage or to wait till you’re in the clear and don’t have to worry about being tested.
