HHCP: The molecule that's shaking up the CBD market

The molecules of the hemp plant discovered by scientists are numerous. While some are now well known to researchers and the public alike, such as CBD (cannabidiol), THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol) and CBC (cannabichromene), others are only just beginning to reveal their effects. Studies are still underway, for example on HHCP (delta-10-tetrahydrocannabinol). HHC has been banned in France since June 2023, so what's the latest on this molecule? What are its effects? Find out all about HHCP in this article proposed by MegamarketCBD.

All you need to know about HHCP

HHCP (Hexahydro Cannabiphorol) is a molecule produced from a distilled form of cannabis oil. It is therefore a synthetic cannabinoid created in the laboratory, but is a form derived from HHC.

On the other hand, HHCP has a high bioavailability, meaning that the molecule is easily assimilated by the body. You can find it in various forms: flowers, resins, oils, vaporizer products, etc.

Differences between HHCP and other cannabinoids in hemp

Each cannabis molecule has its own properties and more or less powerful effects. That's why it's worth knowing the specifics of each one in order to make an informed consumer choice.

HHCP provides less potent psychoactive effects than THC, a molecule that must be present at a maximum level of 0.3% in products offered for sale on the French market.

On the other hand, the psychoactive effects of HHCP are more powerful than those of HHC, even if it takes longer to act on the body. This is because it has a greater affinity with CB1 receptors and therefore interacts more easily with the endocannabinoid system.

All the positive effects and undesirable side effects of HHCP are still being studied by the scientific community.

The effects of HHCP

Here are some possible effects with HHCP. Note that these appear differently in each of us, as each body is different:

  • Temporarily gives appetite, thirst possible,

  • Sense of relaxation,

  • Gives joy (short-lived effect),

  • Soothes body aches,

  • Reduces symptoms of stress and anxiety,

  • Fight sleep disorders,

  • Somnolence, loss of alertness,

  • Alleviates inflammation (effective on arthritis),

  • Soothes difficult digestion, reduces pain that may be associated with it, and limits feelings of nausea and the risk of vomiting,

  • Sensation of dry or pasty mouth,

  • Motor disorders,

  • Etc.

Studies are still underway on this subject, but it is possible that HHCP helps fight certain forms of cancer by slowing the growth of cancer cells.

To know before consuming HHCP

The HHCP molecule has a relatively long life in the body. When tested, it can be found in the body for up to 3 months after consumption (the duration may be shorter depending on the organism).

Be aware that the risk of dependence cannot be ruled out. Never exceed the maximum recommended dose. Always start with a small amount, to give your body time to get used to HHCP. If you decide to consume it, make sure it comes from a reliable, verified source. Choose a relaxing evening at home.

To date, it's very difficult to know exactly whether HHCP is safe or good for your health. The MegamarketCBD team recommends that you opt instead for quality CBD, CBG, CBN or CBC-based products.

As HHCP has psychoactive effects, be careful if you wish to consume it. Don't drive after consumption because of the risk of drowsiness. Seek the advice of a doctor or healthcare professional. Finally, don't use it if you're a minor, taking medication, or if you're pregnant or breastfeeding.

Is HHCP legal?

As is often the case when it comes to the legislation of cannabinoid molecules, legality depends on the country. For example, HHCP is legal in the U.S.

In France, since June 2023, HHC has been classified as a narcotic and therefore prohibited for sale and consumption.
