Is it a phytocannabinoid? (naturally occurring cannabinoid)

HHC is a phytocannabinoid

My Opinion

HHC is considered by many to be the closest altnoid we have to traditional D9 THC - I have found that excluding blends, I agree with this statement. On it's own you get a very sedating, peaceful, gradual, gentle experience that lacks a bit of head high. 

What can HHC do for a blend?
  • When put alongside D8, HHC provides a powerful initial hit that makes my face feel fuzzy.

  • Alongside THC-O, HHC creates a very relaxing and dreamlike state

  • (In my personal experience) The kick from HHC in a blend can be felt between the first 1-10 minutes of a dab.

Other notes:

It's important to keep in mind that batches of HHC vary in quality based on R % values. Check out this article to learn more about that.

Yeah I need to eat 150mg to get good effects from HHC. Vaped it is potent however.



Maybe this is just me, but I find the dose recommended for edibles very very low.

And this isn't just me, even people with little to no tolerance in my circle find 25 or 30 mg pretty mild.

I can say this applies to all of the noids on this website that I've tried but only eaten, the vaped dose is okay.

I feel the author is being overly cautious because I am yet to find someone who'd call 40 mg a "strong dose".

That said, BE CAREFUL and don't jump to a 100 mg dose just like that. But, if you have some tolerance, you'll probably be able to handle 60 or 70 mg no problem.



I really enjoy this cannabinoid. Just using it on its own in a vape cartridge. It has a really strong body high and a light-moderate head high and is brilliant for anxiety control and insomnia.



HHC is a sweet stable of altnoids, It is very beautiful red and usually completely odorless (no vinegar) it has the same consistency of Delta-8, The potency is maybe 1.1x D9 and 1.5x D8. The headspace is similar to delta 8, very focused, clean feeling, but it has tinge of the more classical high feeling vs something like delta 8 which can feel very wirey, and alternative. Great headspace for chores, workout, getting really high focus and also relaxing or recreation. its utility is what makes it a staple 9/10 noid.
