Best known for:

Being a way to "vape an edible" as 8-OH-HHC is one of the metabolites produced by your liver when you eat HHC. It is important to note however that 8-OH-HHC is only one of many metabolites produced, so the experience will not be as well rounded and complete as eating HHC.

Viscosity 

8-OH-HHC has a very low viscosity. It cannot be pushed out of a syringe at room temperature.

To be frank 8-OH-HHC is the hardest noid I've ever worked with, both figuratively and literally.

Is it a phytocannabinoid? (naturally occurring cannabinoid)

8-OH-HHC is not a phytocannabinoid, however, it can be produced in your body when you eat HHC, which is a phyto.

My Opinion

As a novelty 8-OH-HHC is a lot of fun. Being able to "vape an edible" just because its not something you could normally do does indeed make my dumb caveman brain happy. However there is not really a good reason to eat 8-OH-HHC unless maybe you have trouble feeling edibles any other way, but even then I'm not sure if it would work for you. Eating HHC is a decidedly cheaper and easier way to feel the same way. The power level is between THCo and THC-H. 

Also oh my lord this shit is so hard to work with. It doesn't melt until like 170f and resolidifies so fast when removed from heat.

What can 8-OH-HHC do for a blend?
  • Add a fun novelty factor

  • Make a blend more "heady" and heavy behind the eyes.

  • A good kick around the 20ish-minute mark

Other notes:

Because of its bad availability those who do have 8-OH-HHC price it way too high to justify using it instead of (in my opinion) better and cheaper noids like THCp.

Unlike other hydrogenated noids, with 8-OH-HHC you are looking for the S diastereomer

Shout out to HighAsDuck for the following explanation:
Similar to HHC itself
stereochemistry at the 9-Methyl group (9S vs 9R) can vary as well as well as the stereochemistry of the hydroxyl group (8beta vs 8alpha). The 8alpha (Alpha-8-OH-HHC (8S,9S) isomer is more potent) It's reportedly very physically stable and can be broken like chunks and can be touched without sticky residue like other distillates.
