“HHC” is known as hexahydrocannabinol. The effects of HHC can be very similar to that of THC. Creating a euphoric like high also known as a psychoactive state of mind. “HHC” and “Delta” products are technically different. But both are cannabinoids that have psychoactive properties. Due to that, some states have begun to adjust their stance on the legalities of both HHC and Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10.

Key takeaways

  • As of February 2024, more than 25 states in the United States are legally able to sell HHC products and psychoactive cannabinoids.
  • Some states, such as Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, and Illinois have banned the sale of the product even though some of these states have recreationally legal THC use.

Given the rapid changes in laws, it's essential for individuals to check local regulations for current allowances. These laws might evolve over time, so staying informed is key.

Why are the laws changing so quickly?

Currently, it's uncertain whether HHC will turn into a controlled substance under The Controlled Substances Act. It's crucial to understand that HHC is distinct from THC, featuring an additional hydrogen molecule, and evidence supporting its effects is largely anecdotal. Due to its considerable divergence from THC, it's improbable that HHC will be banned.

Although, the reality is that many HHC users suggest that it does give a very similar high to that of THC. Causing many states to regulate how and where they sell HHC products and to what age groups. Many states are starting to put both HHC and Delta products into age restrictions (prohibiting those who are under 21 to purchase). Or outright banning the substance from being sold.
