Things to consider when you buy HHC Philadelphia Products…
HHC stands for Hexahydrocannabinol and it is a naturally occurring element in the cannabis plant, just like cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, CBG, and more. HHC naturally occurs at very low levels in cannabis, so it is usually converted from other cannabinoids which were derived from hemp. Marijuana is another species of the cannabis plant, but legally, all CBD products must be derived from hemp and not mairjuana.
Similar to THC, HHC provides a psychoactive “high” when consumed. The strength of this “high” has been reported by some to be less potent than Delta-9 THC (the predominant cannabinoid found in marijuana), but more potent than Delta-9’s cousin, Delta-8 THC.
When first beginning to use HHC products, we suggest starting with a low dose, just to see how it feels first. You can always take more, but you can never take less once consumed. A low dose to us means just a single HHC Gummy or 2 Puffs of an HHC Vape Cartridge.
Effects from the HHC Vape Cartridge should be felt almost instantaneously, but could take up to about 15 minutes. HHC Gummies may not kick in for up to about two (2) hours after consuming. We suggest waiting about six (6) hours before taking a higher dose. After those six (6) hours, if you feel like a higher dose would benefit you more, go ahead and bump up your previous dose. Maybe two (2) gummies or 5-7 puffs of the HHC Vape will do the trick.
It can be helpful to keep track of how you are feeling after using HHC. This can be on a scale of 1-10 rating levels of anxiety, stress, pain, hunger, mood, sleepiness, focus, etc. In this way you can begin to develop a better understanding of how a particular dose of HHC will affect you.

When extracted, HHC contains two types: HHC-R and HHC-S. One of these (HHC-R) is active and will produce a psychoactive “high” while the other (HHC-S) is inactive. It is too costly to separate the two types so you will find them both in HHC products. Thrive Flower aims to have around 50% HHC-R in each HHC product we offer.
