HHCP, also known as hexahydrocannabiphorol, is a semi-synthetic cannabinoid gaining popularity for its heightened potency. This compound packs a punch, with consumers and chemists suggesting it is roughly 33 times stronger than delta-9 THC.
To understand the difference and similarities between HHCP and other known cannabinoids, we look at the process in which it is made.
HHCP distillate is produced via isomerization, the same process that creates delta 8, THC-P, and HHC concentrates.In this application, isomerization changes the structure of cannabidiol molecules (CBD), to make a new cannabinoid, such as HHCP.
In its active, concentrated form, HHCP is a highly potent cannabinoid that can offer consumers a stronger alternative to THC that is made using hemp plants.
It has quite similar effects on the body, with an affinity for the CB1 receptor (one of the key receptors within the endocannabinoid system). This isolated compound can be digested, vaporized, and used topically similar to other cannabinoids for a number of possible health benefits that we cover below.
Although most of the HHCP available on the market today was likely synthesized using organic chemistry, it is possible to find trace amounts of it within hemp and cannabis plants naturally. This is because all combinations of cannabinoids can be present within the resin of the hemp flower.
All cannabinoids are considered isomers and all originate from cannabigerol (CBG), one of the first cannabinoids formed in the cannabis plant. The trichome glands of the plant are penetrated with UVB rays which interact with the secreted compounds in the resin, forming CBG and other key constituents of cannabis extracts.
When CBG is formed, it can split into more than 100 individual cannabinoids as the plant matures. Although CBG and HHCP are found in trace amounts within a harvested flower, cannabinoids like CBD are found in abundance.
This makes the synthesis of HHCP significantly more cost-effective, as the CBD can be modified so easily. Hemp is a much easier plant to source than other forms of cannabis, incentivising the use of novel cannabinoids derived from CBD over classic THC extracts.
When exploring the chemistry behind HHCP, we can break it down into a few steps:
The process begins with a molecular extraction of CBD from the hemp plant. This can result in a purified oil or a crystalized form of CBD, ideally testing around 99% purity. This CBD is then processed via isomerization, manipulating the structure of the CBDA molecule into THCPA.
When acidic cannabinoids are exposed to heat, they undergo a process known as decarboxylation. This is the very same process that converts THCA into activated THC when smoking or baking with cannabis.
The THCPA molecules undergo a similar process and are changed to THCP. Further dewaxing and liquid chromatography may be necessary to obtain a pure enough form of THCP. This sets you up with the precursor for HHCP.
Finally, THCP can be changed to HHCP through hydrogenation. This is the same process that produces HHC via delta-8 THC.
Hydrogenation manipulates the structure of the molecule once again, and further stabilizes the structure based on its shape and the addition of hydrogen (when looking at compounds like HHC). Specifically a single hydrogen is added to saturate the cyclohexane ring of the precursor cannabinoid. This removes the double bond and creates a rigid and strong chemical structure.
HHCP is made by adding two more carbons to its alkyl chain at the tail of the chemical structure. This increased length allows HHCP to have an increased bonding to cannabinoid receptors. The increase in bioavailability may provide some insight as to how strong HHCP feels when consumed.
This change in structure not only allows for a unique experience when consumed, but it also provides a significantly longer shelf life for hemp based products.
HHCP has an impressive ability to bind to the CB1 receptors in the brain, at a rate of roughly 33 times more than Delta-9 THC. This can often feel like extremely strong THC.
The CB1 receptor in the body’s endocannabinoid system is the receptor primarily associated with the psychoactive and calming effects of cannabinoids. Meaning, HHCP will feel very heady compared to its more subtle cousin, CBD.
Alongside HHCP’s strong psychoactive effects, it may also provide an increased amount of other benefits, compared to its less potent derivative cannabinoids.
Although HHCP distillate is a relatively new compound that will require deeper research before we understand its full potential, it has been anecdotally described as having similar qualities to HHC.
This is especially true around potency. As discussed before, it’s important to start slow with these cannabinoids as many will only require a few milligrams for a full-bodied experience.
Additionally, there was a 2010 study conducted on the affinity of HHC analogs, where they found that HHC had significantly high affinity that also had an impact on the duration of action.
This meant that the hydrogenated cannabinoids were metabolized in a way that makes the effects last longer than standard cannabinoids. Based on these findings, it is possible to conclude that HHCP distillate will not only feel stronger, but may also last longer in your body.
Some known effects of HHCP based on anecdotal evidence and studies on HHC:
It is possible to induce paranoia on a high dose, but with proper dosing technique this can be easily avoided. Some other side effects of HHCP may include dry mouth, headache, or a feeling of intoxication. It’s always a good idea to consult a medical professional before mixing any novel cannabinoids with other medications.
