According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), THC can hinder brain development if you start using it as a teenager. In that case, you may experience problems with memory, thinking, and learning.
HHC may have similar effects, although more research is needed. HHC (hexahydrocannabinol) has been causing a sensation among hemp enthusiasts. Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is an intoxicating compound in cannabis that makes you put on. Its effects are less powerful than those of THC delta-9, and it induces mild euphoria and relaxation in small and medium doses.
Extracting HHC directly from hemp would be very financially disadvantageous, so the production of HHC was initiated through hydrogenation and, therefore, falls into the category of so-called semisynthetic cannabinoids. Although HHC is weaker than delta-9, first-time cannabis users should take as little HHC as possible.
