It can be confusing to those new to the use of CBD products to understand their options and choose the best products based on their personal goals and needs. One confusing element can be the labeling of CBD products, which has become more specific as more research and development goes on in the industry.
HHC is often recognized as an alternative to Delta 8 THC, which is a naturally occurring cannabinoid. Delta 8 THC is less psychoactive than the Delta 9 THC found in marijuana. Another relatively new product in the market is HHC, or hexahydrocannabinol, another naturally occurring compound in hemp.
It is important to realize that HHC is a minor cannabinoid, which means it is found in limited quantities in the hemp plant. Today, laboratories produce HHC through specific processes that harvest and concentrate the compound.
Sativa and Indica
Sativa and Indica strains have different effects on the user. As a general guideline, when the desired effect of using the CBD product is to create a more energetic and uplifting experience, it is ideal to choose an HHC strain of Sativa. This may result in feelings of increased focus, mental clarity, and increased creativity for some users.
Typically, Indica is used when the goal is to create more of a deep relaxation rather than invigorating effects. Many people choose an indica HHC strain if they are selecting gummies, tinctures, or other products that are designed to help them get to sleep or to reduce issues with insomnia.
Both Sativa and Indica HHC strains have different terpene profiles and overall effects. Trying different options is often the best way to find what works for each person.
