HHC stands for hexahydrocannabinol. A long word to describe one of the most fascinating active ingredients of the hemp plant. Because, similar to CBD and many other cannabinoids, HHC is also extracted from the versatile hemp or cannabis plant. CBD is already a well-known and renowned product in Europe. HHC started its winning run in the USA and is now finding more and more favor in Europe.

If HHC was considered a special mystery for a long time, more and more people want to know more about HHC as a legal alternative to THC. Basically, research has known about HHC for about 80 years. This special ingredient of hemp was discovered by Roger Adams. He was a US chemist, but not a marketing specialist. This may have been one of the reasons why HHC attracted little attention since its discovery. Another reason was that HHC is present in cannabis at very low levels compared to CBD or even THC. This means that the effort required to extract it is enormous.
