Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC)

A throng of new variants of the marijuana-based cannabinoid delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) has recently entered the market, gaining the attention of both cannabis users and the businesses that serve them.

While options are generally a good thing, one negative effect of the availability of these new phytocannabinoids has been confusion and misinformation among patients and lifestyle consumers.

This is due to the fact that it is very similar to the delta-9 THC to which all cannabis consumers are familiar. Many consumers—especially patients who must medicate while on the job, when driving a vehicle, or during childcare—actually prefer the lower potency of delta-8.
