The Newest Buzz: HHC

As a wholesaler, The Hemp Doctor is committed to bringing you the most competitive products on the market. In the past year, we’ve rolled out new product lines for Delta 8, THC-O, and now HHC.

What is HHC?

HHC is a cannabinoid molecule that produces similar effects to Delta 9 THC. It’s separated from the plant using hydrogenation, creating a cannabinoid as effective as Delta 9 THC. This product has the potential to be the most marketable new cannabinoid since CBD.

Chemically, HHC is the margarine to THC’s butter. It’s a hydrogenated form of THC made only from hemp with less than 0.3% THC by weight. It occurs naturally in cannabis pollen but in such small amounts that in order to be a commercially viable product, it has to be manufactured. In some writing, you’ll see HHC referred to as “semi-synthetic,” and that’s because it does exist in nature, but what you’re selling is made in a lab.

This also means that everywhere Delta 8 THC is legal, HHC is legal as well. As Delta 8 is similarly considered semi-synthetic, if you can buy and sell Delta 8 legally, you can buy and sell HHC.

Marketing HHC to customers

You may be wondering how to frame HHC to your customers, especially if you also have THC-O and Delta 8 products at your retail location.

With HHC’s close similarity to Delta 9 THC, you can sell it as a legal alternative to marijuana. It’s a hemp-derived product manufactured from hemp containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by weight.

In anecdotes from people who have experience with many cannabinoids, HHC is described as the closest to THC in the psychoactive experience. However, in relation to its sister cannabinoids, it's more potent than Delta 8 THC and doesn't have the knock-down punch that THC-O boasts.

If you have a display of your Delta 8 and THC-O products, you can put HHC products in between the two. Delta 8 is great for those new to cannabinoids and who want to experience a milder sensation without a head high. HHC is a step up — very similar to Delta 9 THC in that it has both a body buzz and a head high. THC-O is for those who want to turn that high up to 11.

Framing these products to your customers in that way will generate sales and build trust and repeat business.
