How Long Does a HHC High Last?

“HHC” is known as hexahydrocannabinol. HHC is another form of an “alternative” cannabinoid. This is very similar to Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 products. The way these products are derived (mostly HHC and Delta-8) are different. Mostly, in how their carbon chains are double-bonded. Delta products have carbon chains double-bonded on their respective “8, 9, and 10th chain” while HHC products have no double bonding.

Key takeaways

  • “HHC” or hexahydrocannabinol can last anywhere from 4 to 6 hours when consumed.
  • The type of product you use to consume HHC can greatly affect its onset and ultimate length of the effects.

How long does a HHC high last?

An “HHC high” can last very similar to that of a “THC high.” The net effects of these chemicals are very similar. HHC or hexahydrocannabinol will last anywhere from 2 hours to 6 hours depending on the person, their consumption habits, and more.

The duration of the “high” can vary depending on the type of product that you use and your body's own ability to absorb the HHC compound in your bloodstream.

Vapes (inhalants)

Effects of HHC inhalants can take up to 30-minutes to feel, while some users suggest the effects can be felt in as little as 5-minutes. Since inhalants usually get absorbed into the body more quickly, the onset time can impact how long the high lasts.

Vapes are known to have a high that can last up to four hours.

Edibles and consumables

Edibles are absorbed into the bloodstream through the digestion of the product. Since HHC gummies or other products pass through your digestive system (absorbing them through your intestinal walls before reaching your bloodstream), it can take longer to get fully metabolized by your liver.

On average, edibles have been known to have similar effect times, lasting around 4-hours. While some users suggest that the feeling can last as long as 6-hours.

Can a HHC high last two weeks?

This is common misinformation that is circulating around the internet. The HHC compound can last in your bloodstream for up to two weeks. But that does not mean the “high” of the HHC product will last that long.

Since this is a newer alternative cannabinoid that is gaining in popularity, there is a lot of rapidly changing information about the substance and its effects on users as consumption continues to popularize.
