When it comes to using marijuana, it’s no longer all about smoking joints with your friends under the moonlit sky (even though that’s an awesome experience). Now, there are plenty of ways to enjoy Cannabis sativa’s intoxicating effects.
HHC gummies is one of the latest and most exciting of these cannabinoids. It’s also as controversial as a Congressman caught with his mistress in the seedy bowels of a Los Angeles nightclub. The guy fails to give an adequate tip and ends up on the cover of TMZ.
The thing about HHC gummies is that they’re manufactured in a way to allows them to use a legal loophole to remain out of federal law’s clutches. Below, I check out the possible health benefits of HHC, and outline its current legal status.
Let’s be clear. HHC doesn’t have a huge level of research backing up medical claims. So, if a brand makes claims like some back alley huckster, it’s best to steer clear. Most reputable companies are clever enough to be delightfully ambiguous when describing how their HHC gummies work.
Another thing to note is that HHC is about 70% to 80% as intoxicating as the delta 9 found in marijuana. So, in theory, if you feel high after using 10mg of delta 9, you might get a similar effect from 12.5mg to 15mg of HHC. However, this is no hard and fast rule. So don’t blame me if your HHC gummies experience leads to you covered in blue bodypaint, screaming “FREEDOM” in a Scottish accent while holding a fence post since it’s the nearest thing to a spear you could find.
There aren’t many studies on the cannabinoid at present. That said, research suggests that the binding affinity of isomer HHC is similar to that of delta 9. So, there’s every chance that when you use HHC gummies, they’ll have effects that seem familiar to regular marijuana users.
For instance, since HHC likely interacts with our pain perception pathways, it might reduce the sensation of pain. Since the nation is riddled with deadly opioids, the possibility of taking something that doesn’t turn you into a hopeless addict destined for an early grave is appealing.
If you have trouble sleeping and documentaries about the economic policies of the Weimar Republic aren’t getting it done, you could try HHC gummies to beat your insomnia. That’s because the cannabinoid could promote relaxation, ensuring it becomes easier to fall asleep and also remain asleep.
In a federal sense, HHC remains a legal substance if it is derived from hemp and has a delta 9 content of 0.3% or less. This is down to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill into law, which ended decades of prohibition on the cultivation of hemp. No longer are farmers prevented from growing something that probably wouldn’t get a guinea pig high (quite a thought).
Of course, marijuana remains a federally illegal substance, as it has been since 1937. We can, of course, drink our drug. Alcohol, a drug known for causing violent behavior, a myriad of health problems, and automobile accidents, is perfectly fine. To be fair, the American government banned it for a while, but that didn’t work out well.
We also have lovely tobacco cigarettes, with their fetid stench and propensity for shortening the life span of those who use them. But, marijuana is the devil’s lettuce and we’ll hear no more about it. Drugs are bad, m’kay (except the ones we legalize and tax of course).
In any case, a growing number of states have banned HHC. So, when you’re trying to buy HHC gummies from Premium Jane, you’ll need to find out whether the top-rated brand can ship to your state. The company will NOT send them to any state with a ban, so don’t bother.
If you want to try something a little different, HHC gummies are a worthy option. They provide a high that’s slightly less intoxicating than delta 9. So, if you’re in the mood to go full William Wallace, it might not necessarily be the cannabinoid for you. But, if you want to see if it can help you similarly to D9, it is perhaps worth a try.
