What is THC-O and HHC?

What is THC-O Acetate?

THC-O stands for tetrahydrocannabinol acetate, another cannabinoid derived from hemp. THC-O, however, doesn’t naturally occur in the cannabis plant, but rather is completely man-made. It’s synthesized specifically to be stronger and more powerful than certain other compounds, like Delta-9 or Delta-8. In fact, THC-O is believed to be at least two times stronger than Delta-9. Like Delta 10, THC-O is also psychoactive since it’s THC based vs. CBD. Because of its strength, it’s not the compound for the beginner user. This is an advanced compound meant to mellow out the mind and provide the user with different levels of a psychedelic experience depending on the dosage.

What is HHC?

HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, is a compound that is known to be the most stable version of THC because of its resistance to heat and UV radiation. It also has a substantially longer shelf-life than THC. Unlike THC-O, HHC is, in fact, naturally occurring. But like Delta 10, it only occurs in such trace amounts that it is most often manufactured in labs to be bountiful enough for the public. In use, HHC leans more towards providing a sense of relaxation than stimulation. It works similarly to THC in that it alters headspace and cognition and can produce feelings of euphoria.
