What is HHC-O?

HHC-O is a very new cannabinoid coming to the market, so the search for information on it can still be quite limited, but here’s what we know. HHC-O has a very similar chemical structure to HHC. The reason for these differences is because of the addition of acetic anhydride. With this addition, HHC-O becomes 1.5 times stronger than HHC and metabolizes in the body similarly to Delta-9.

What will you feel with HHC-O?

Since HHC-O is stronger than HHC, the effects become similar to Delta-9. When using HHC/HHC-O your body processes it through your endocanabinoid system in a similar way to Delta-9, thus offering similar high effects. Everyone’s body metabolizes HHC-O differently, but many users report a stronger high than Delta-8 with mellowing and uplifting effects for both the body and mind. 

Some potential benefits of HHC-O include:

  • A strong buzz
  • Increase in mood
  • More relaxation
  • Intense experience 
  • Stimulated mental and physical experience

What are some side effects of HHC-O?

Similar to the side effects of HHC, the side effects of HHC-O can include:

  • Dry Mouth
  • Headache
  • Intense physical & mental experience
  • Effects may last 1-2 hours

Since HHC-O is stronger than HHC, we recommend starting with a small dose until you know your tolerance. As with all intoxicating products we recommend not operating heavy machinery while using HHC-O.

Is HHC-O safe? 

While HHC-O is relatively new to the market, there have been no reports on issues with these products, however, there are also no reports on potential long term side effects from these products either. This cannabinoid may offer short term relief, but we discourage using long term as there are no studies on effects.
