Read directions before use and proceed with caution. HHC can be intoxicating, relaxing, and extremely sedating at high dosages. We always suggest to start with a small dose (0.25ml – 0.5ml) to gauge how this HHC product effects you. Effects from ingesting this tincture can take anywhere from 30 – 90 minutes to set in.
If unfamiliar with HHC, start with 0.25ml under the tongue. 0.25ml of this product equals 4mg of HHC, 2mg of CBD, and 2mg of CBN. Despite this being a relatively small dose, it is better to start low than overdo it. Feel free to increase in 0.25ml increments nightly until you reach the desired effects.
0.25ml = 4mg HHC | 2mg CBD | 2mg CBN
0.5ml = 8mg HHC | 4mg CBD | 4mg CBN
0.75ml = 12mg HHC | 6mg CBD | 6mg CBN
1ml = 16mg HHC | 8mg CBD | 8mg CBN
What is HHC?
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a rare cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis plants. HHC is the hydrogenated version of THC, but is slightly less intoxicating. The HHC used in our products is hemp derived making it federally legal.
HHC is a semi-synthetic cannabinoid because it is naturally occurring in hemp plants, but it is synthesized in a professional laboratory using CBD. The hydrogenation process is similar to how vegetable oil is turned to margarine, so feel confident that the same process is used in common foods we consume regularly.
Users of HHC report that it is slightly less intoxicating than THC and incredibly relaxing. HHC has similar therapeutic qualities to THC and we frequently combine this cannabinoid with other compounds to provide the tailored effect consumers are looking for. Keep in mind, it is best to start with a low dose if you are not experienced with cannabis products (we suggest 0.25ml in this tincture) so you can gauge how HHC effects you.
HHC Best Uses:
- Night Time Use
What is CBN?
Cannabinol (CBN): Similar to CBG and CBD, CBN has a number of potential benefits. CBN can be found in “old weed” and is a product of THC degradation. Very limited data exists on the effects of CBN, but there have been animal studies that lead researchers to believe it has a more sedating effect. Also thought to be anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-bacterial, CBN is most commonly found in night time sleep aids.
CBN is a great product to use in tandem with CBD. Again, the data is limited and the FDA has not indicated CBN for any of these specific uses, so it’s best to experiment with CBN yourself to see what kind of results you get.
CBN Best Uses:
- Night time use
Why Use HHC with CBD and CBN?
We choose to mix HHC with CBD and CBN because HHC provides a deep relaxation. Mixing it with CBD and CBN helps to make it even more relaxing. In regards to the limited research we have for cannabis, most of the available data shows several conditions respond well to CBD and THC at a 1:1 ratio. Using HHC instead of THC is our “hemp” version of this unique and effective combination.
HHC is known to be very relaxing. We would say that HHC provides a low key “Indica” feeling users might be looking for.
Similar to Delta8, HHC provides a less intoxicating experience than THC. This is one of the reasons some people favor these cannabinoids. They are looking for less of a high, but similar medicinal value.
Like THC, HHC may interact with pain receptors in our body. The theory is that HHC provides a great way to address pain related issues just like THC does. These types of symptoms commonly keep people from getting a good night sleep.
In addition to HHC being very relaxing, CBN is widely thought to be a sedating cannabinoid. You will commonly see this ingredient in products specific for bed time. By mixing these 3 ingredients, we believe we can help relax the mind and body, give that couch lock “Indica” effect, and address inflammation, stress, and put you to bed.
Keep in mind that every person responds a little bit differently. Our best advice is to listen to your body and start low and increase dosage slowly.
This info is a view into why we combine HHC, CBD, and CBN at the dosage in this product. At this time, these types of products are not approved by the FDA. There is not enough data to know exactly how these compounds work best for patients. All we have at this point is anecdotal evidence from other patients. The best thing you can do is educate yourself and do your due diligence before trying a product. If it feels like it may provide what you are looking for, start with a low dose and increase slowly to find the best results.
Why Choose a Tincture?
Medicinally speaking, tinctures are typically our go-to as a prophylactic (daily use). Tinctures are best suited for daily use due to easy dosing and long acting effects. Patient’s can use a measured dropper (standard on all of our products) to calculate the right dose. They can also change the dosage as needed. For patients that are serious about getting the best results, a tincture offers dosing flexibility, better absorption than edibles, and are more cost effective in the long run if they are using daily.
Time for tinctures to take effect: 30 – 60 minutes
How long tinctures last: 4 – 6 hours
- Easy to calculate dose using measured dropper
- Flexibility to change dose up and down as needed
- Faster acting than edibles or capsules
- Whole body effects that last
- Some don’t like oil texture
- Not the best option for “as needed” issues
- Slightly shorter acting than edibles or capsules
Tinctures are best suited for:
- Patients that need to titrate dose up or down
- Someone looking for a daily use supplement
- Someone ready and willing to put in work to get results
