How HHC is Made

"How is HHC Made?", is a question we are often asked. Because HHC, Hexahydrocannabinol, is so new to the market, there is not a lot of information available. Searching to buy the best HHC vapes online requires your due diligence to make sure the products are backed with lab tests from a 3rd party independent lab.

According to the "Adams et al J. Am. Chem Soc. 1940 Vol. 62" publication the chemist Roger Adams had been experimenting with cannabis during the 1930s into the 1940s. He was experimenting with cannabis, Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC), to understand the plant’s active compounds when he first synthesized HHC in his laboratory. This led to the discovery that while Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is being converted to Cannabinol (CBN) during a disproportionation reaction HHC is produced. This shows that HHC like CBN is a naturally occurring cannabinoid that is produced during the disintegration process of concentrates, extracts, and aged cannabis flower.


During the hydrogenation of either Delta-9-THC or Delta-8-THC isomers, the hydrogenated cannabinoid Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is formed. Creating HHC in a laboratory is more cost-effective and efficient because of the available naturally occurring HHC. Another method that can be used to create HHC is thermal decarboxylation of Hexahydrocannabinolic acid (HHCA)

How HHC is made

When CBD produced from hemp was legalized with the 2018 Farm Bill, HHC began to be produced from this legalized hemp. HHC is being produced in multiple types of products for different methods of delivery. HHC disposable vapes, and cartridges are some of the most popular, with edibles and other forms of HHC now becoming available. When searching for HHC hemp cannabinoid vape disposables, carts, and cartridges for sale near me or online check the Baked HHC for the highest quality products.

A report from an Israeli scientist named Raphael Mechoulam discovered 2 different forms of HHC in 1971 while he was identifying the chemical structure of THC during the hydrogenation process. One of the HHC forms, beta-form was reported to be more active than the other alpha-form. The HHC molecules were almost identical, however, the small difference in the 3-D orientation of the beta-HHC was found to be more active.


Because HHC is so new to the market, there is very little testing available. Baked HHC is the first to set the standard for HHC testing that is available here. Always analyze the lab results for identity and purity when purchasing HHC to make sure you know what is in the product.
