There is a new cannabinoid product in the market for you to try. HHC is a relatively new venture in the cannabinoid industry. Manufacturers market it as a semi-synthetic cannabinoid with many therapeutic benefits. HHC products, especially gummies, are getting popular among users.
Do you know how the therapeutic drug works in your body? What are the effects of taking them? We will talk about the drug and how HHC gummies affect your body extensively in the article.
How do HHC gummies work in your body?
HHC is a close relative of THC. Through hydrogenation, THC turns into HHC. Two hydrogen molecules replace a double bond of THC. It is the same process used to turn vegetable oil into margarine.
HHC, short for Hexahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid. Though the potency of the resultant product decreases to 70-80% of THC, the stability of the product increases. It also becomes more resilient to heat and moisture. So it acts like others. It influences your body by triggering your endocannabinoid system. The drug interacts with the cannabinoid receptors of the body and controls your ECS.
The system controls many crucial functions like mood, sleep, appetite, memory, cognitive ability, etc. The drug also enhances the secretion of some hormones and enzymes like serotonin, dopamine, etc.
How long will the effect of HHC gummies last?
The effects of the gummies depend on various factors like the strength of the product used, dosage, bioavailability, tolerance, and body chemistry.
General instruction for dosage goes like this,
- Low dosage: 5 mg to 12 mg
- Medium dosage: 12 mg to 30 mg
- High dosage: 30 mg to 60 mg
The drug starts acting 30 to 45 minutes after taking them. The effects last up to 2 to 6 hours. It is a fat-soluble drug, so taking it after a fatty meal will help enhance its effects. But no matter what, edibles start working after they pass your digestive tracts. Wait for at least 2 to 3 hours before taking any more gummies. Try not to take more gummies in the meantime.

- It gives you euphoria:
Euphoria is a feeling of being extremely happy and satisfied with your life for the time being. There is nothing concerning about being happy. If you enjoy occasional highs, you can use them as a legal way to get that. But sometimes euphoria makes you emotionally vulnerable too. You have to be careful about it. Driving a car, lifting something heavy, and operating a piece of machinery can be risky if you are high. Besides that, euphoria may not be disturbing, but it can cause other work to be dangerous.
2. Mental health:
Cannabinoids have a mixed effect on your mental health. For their benefits on mental health, many states have legalized medical marijuana. HHC enhances the creation of serotonin, which plays a crucial role in managing anxiousness. So, it can help alleviate anxiety and depression.
The drug can also relieve stress build-up and boost your mood by deleting negative thoughts from your mind. Scientists believe that it can help treat stress disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), panic attacks, etc. But we do not have sufficient research on the product yet to use them medically.
Like other cannabinoids, HHC gummies also work as a natural sleep aid. A new agonizing concern of today is sleep deprivation. It can cause severe issues later in life. The drug eliminates your dilemmas and negative thoughts and calms your nerves. Sleep is crucial to restore, rejuvenate, and repair your mind and body.

The drug might also help treat sleep disorders like insomnia, circadian rhythm cycle, restless leg syndrome, hypersomnia, etc.
HHC helps improve mental health, and it also enhances cognitive ability. So, your memory gets better, and the risks of cognitive diseases decrease. But after taking the gummies, you might have difficulties concentrating, focusing, learning, or remembering things due to the high effect. Some people showed lower IQ results after using cannabinoids. If teenagers and young adults use them daily, it can affect their brains severely.
5. Blood pressure and heart health:
Most middle-aged people in the world are dealing with high blood pressure issues. When you are under much stress and do not get proper rest, it affects your central nervous system. As a result, your blood vessels get tighter, and your heart rate increases.
So, if you deal with high blood pressure, these gummies might help you. But the gummies will cause a drop in your blood pressure either way. So, you have to be careful while using them. The drug also increases the heart rate. And it can lead to poor heart health over time.
6. Appetite and digestion:
HHC has the Munchies effect that stimulates appetite. So, if you often lose your appetite during lunch or dinner, you can try them. Scientists are thinking about using them for cancer and chemo patients who suffer from a chronic case of poor appetite.
These gummies also improve your digestion and gut health. They interact with the endocannabinoid system and enhance your digestion. The anti-inflammatory properties help reduce any acid reflux in your stomach. It might also help with severe nausea and vomiting. But prolonged use of these gummies might also cause nausea.
Dry eyes and redness are two common side effects of using cannabinoids. Cannabinoid receptors control the moisture in the eyes. So, the eyes might get a little dry and red after starting HHC gummies. These gummies can reduce eye pressure which can help treat glaucoma. Doctors are trying to find a form of the drug that will be safe for eye treatment.
So, this is the list of things that happens to your body when you take HHC gummies. As the research about the drug is still in its infancy, we do not know more about its effects now. Always use premium quality gummies for better results.
