Will HHC Make You High?

Will HHC Make You High?

The psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), HHC produces a wide range of subjective effects in humans. These include feelings of euphoria, relaxation, sedation, anxiety reduction, increased appetite and pain relief.

But while some people report enjoying the positive effects of THC, others do not experience anything at all. This difference in response is called interindividual variability. And although scientists are still trying to figure out why some people respond differently to certain drugs, one thing seems clear: There is no single “high.”

Hence the term high-concentrate cannabis extract (HHC).

This product is basically concentrated THC, extracted from marijuana plants and sold on the market. Unlike traditional cannabis extracts like hash oil or edibles, HHC contains very little cannabidiol (CBD), another active compound found in cannabis.

In fact, most HHC products contain less than 0.3% CBD. So how does it work? Well, according to recent research, HHC appears to produce a different type of effect than THC alone.

A study published earlier this month in Scientific Reports suggests that HHC might actually help relieve symptoms associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a mental health condition that affects veterans returning home from combat.

Researchers gave volunteers either THC or HHC and asked them to complete a task designed to measure emotional reactivity. They found that both groups reported similar levels of pleasure during the task, but those given HHC showed greater reductions in physiological arousal compared to those given THC alone.

How Do People Use HHC Products?

Hemp-based cannabidiol oil (HHC), known for its ability to provide relief from pain, inflammation, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, cancer, epilepsy, and even acne, is becoming increasingly popular among consumers looking to find natural ways to treat various ailments.

While there are no studies to support the effectiveness of hemp-derived CBD oils for treating specific conditions, anecdotal evidence suggests that the product can help alleviate symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Crohn’s disease, among others.

While most people use HHC products for recreational purposes, there are also numerous health benefits to consider. For instance, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, CBD oil may help relieve stress, depression, and anxiety. Furthermore, CBD can reportedly lower blood pressure and protect against cardiovascular diseases.

The bottom line? There is still much we don’t know about how exactly CBD works in the body, and what the long-term side effects are. However, since there is little risk involved and the potential benefits seem promising, it seems like a good idea to keep experimenting with different doses and types of CBD products.
