Hexahydrocannabinol – The Ultimate Guide To HHC Information
Hexahydrocannabinol is one of the newest cannabinoids to hit the market, it has the reputation of being 80% as strong as Delta 9 THC, to which we can honestly say this seems about right.
There are a lot of cannabinoids coming out, and many of them will hold some pretty strong claims, for example, we can remember when THC-O was first introduced as the psychedelic cannabinoid. We all were thinking we were going to get to see some pretty neat colors or something, but for the most part, this seemed to fall very short in this regard. HHC, however, doesn’t exactly capture this same type of attention.
It seems that some people felt that HHC (Hexahydrocannabinol) was a lot like mixing weed with liquor.
This is a bit misleading. Consumers of HHC do not feel like they are drunk and just puffed on a joint. That seems to fail the description of the euphoria overall. We perceive this cannabinoid to behave in a way that reflects the personality of Indica.
Will HHC get you high?
Hexahydrocannabinol is very likely to get you high and produce a euphoria that is very close to that of an Indica strain. Effects may take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes to take effect for most people.
HHC is generally seen to be about 80% as strong as Delta 9 THC, however, Utoya speculates that it may be longer-lasting and to plan for about 2 – 3 hours of this euphoria.
What Kind Of HHC Products Can I get?
Hexahydrocannabinol will be as versatile as the other cannabinoids in regards to getting its feet off the ground and into orbit, taking you with it, in the following product types:
- Vape Cartridges
- Moon Rocks
- Water Soluble

What are the effects of HHC?
The effects of Hexahydrocannabinol, despite it not being a THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), is actually very close in structure to Delta 9 THC. It is for this reason that HHCs effects are so close to Delta 9 THC, however, it stands to note that this product takes roughly 10 to 30 minutes before you feel it.
You can expect some of the following effects with HHC:
- Appetite Stimulated
Please note that given the structure of this molecule and it’s remarkable similarities to THC, it may also cause some of the same side effects such as:
- Dry Mouth
- Red Eyes
- Increased Appetite
Some research suggests that this cannabinoid may also cause anxiety and paranoia, though it is not yet reported by any of our users as of yet.
It is also speculated that HHC may share some of the same benefits as THC, however, it is interesting to point out that HHC doesn’t attack tumors or cancerous growths in the same way that Delta 9 THC does, rather than directly destroying it, it cuts sources keeping that particular growth alive from reaching and feeding a malicious growth in the body, ultimately starving it to death. There are very few studies regarding HHC and cancer. Please understand that our products are not pharmaceuticals and are not regulated by the FDA.
Is HHC Safe?
Hexahydrocannabinol’s safety profile is not very well studied, however, there are no studies that are out about it that suggest that the cannabinoid is dangerous.
There are currently companies that exist that are starting to open up to HHC, however, be aware that not all companies are going to actually give you HHC. Utoya has already seen products being cut with various things, including additional cannabinoids where those cannabinoids are not advertised as a part of the product. In other words, maybe you bought some HHC distillate, but when you scan that code, you’ll find that it’s maybe only got 2% in it that is HHC, where the rest is likely to be Delta 8 THC.
This is because HHC is very expensive. Hexahydrocannabinol costs a lot to get your hands on, that is why it is priced higher than our other vape products, including more than our THC-O line, and multiple cannabinoid blends. So understand that if you aren’t paying around $40 – $50 for your HHC vape cart, it probably is fake.
Don’t trust just any company with your HHC products. Make sure that they select their products as carefully as Utoya does. Utoya makes sure that the distillate you get is the distillate that is advertised, free of cutting agents, solvents, metals, or toxins. We make sure the product we get is tested before we receive it, and then we test it again to make sure that what was found on the first lab test, is the same that we get back on ours.
Will HHC Show Up On A Drug Test?
At this time, we cannot be 100% certain. It is widely believed that due to the fact that HHC is not the same as THC, that it will not leave behind the signature THC metabolite that drug tests search for, however, we don’t know for certain what will happen since HHC shares a molecular structure that is very close to THC. Drug tests are not known for their accuracy, so for now, we cannot promise that you will pass a drug test with HHC. We would rather you don’t lose that job or get into trouble if you don’t have to and wait until some more time passes. We are hoping to uncover this knowledge soon!

How do I store my products?
Hexahydrocannabinol is actually one of the more shelf-stable products with a longer shelf-life that will make it harder to cause it to deteriorate in potency. This is largely in part to its hydrogenated state, and due to the lack of it’s double-bond isomers on the top ring that make it so deterioration is not so easy.
Some things to consider:
- Light is a destroyer of cannabinoids, it’s best to avoid sunlight.
- Oxygen is another destroyer of cannabinoids, take care to keep your containers tight
- Tempurature will degrade cannabinoids over time, keep it at room tempurature (74°F is fine)
Additionally, it should be known that these things that will destroy cannabinoids do still take some time, so don’t obsess over these factors. HHC is also much stronger than THC, so these factors play less of a role when put face to face against the HHC.
What is the difference between Delta 9 THC and HHC?
This difference in overall structure is also what allows hexahydrocannabinol to be more resilient to things such as UV exposure and heat.
