The effects of HHC are very similar to THC. Some HHC users describe its effect as more relaxing than Delta 9, similar to Delta 8. Since HHC is so similar to THC, it may offer many of the benefits of THC, but few studies have investigated this.
Our HHC distillate dose not contain THC more than 0.2%. Therefore, it has a legal advantage over delta-8, delta-9 and delta-10.
HHC-O is the acetate version of HHC, a naturally occurring cannabinoid that is chemically stable as a hydrogenated form of CBD or THC due to its hydrogen enhancement and is known to have similar effects to THC. After HHC processed to HHC-O, its fluidity was significantly improved.

HHC-O is the prodrug version of HHC and therefore has great medicinal effects. While HHC will usually feel very fast after it evaporates, HHC-O takes longer to work but lasts longer. Once your body metabolizes acetate, it binds easily to cannabinoid receptors, more easily than HHC alone, for a stronger effect. One aspect of HHC-O is that it is generally stronger than HHC alone because of its higher bioavailability. It has lower viscosity than HHC, and is versatile in food applications. The positive effects will be stronger than with HHC.

HHC-P is actually the hydrogenated form of THC-P. This means that it is made in part of hydrogen and is extremely chemically stable, yet still provides the same properties as THC-P. Those who are familiar with HHC will understand the analogy between HHC-P and THC-P, and the relationship between HHC and delta 9 THC.
Measuring the strength of HHCP is not easy because it depends on the subjective experience of the person using it. Consumers of HHCP claim it is 20 times as potent as HHC, 5 times as potent as THCP and 10 times as potent as THC. Notably, the bioavailability of HHCP is higher than that of Delta 9 THC. It can be noted that most HHC-P products on the market have a percentage of less than 5% due to its incredible strength and longer lasting durability. Most users will mix HHC-P at smaller percentages due to how strong it is. While there are currently no bad user reports, it is certain that driving a vehicle or operating heavy machinery after using HHCP would be a high risk behavior.
