Three cannabinoids that couldn't be more different, yet have something in common: they have a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system in the body. What is true about that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, HHC gives energy and H4CBD causes euphoria? You will learn that and much more in this article!

Hemp is a rich storehouse of cannabinoids. While THC is renowned for its psychotropic properties, CBD has gained attention for its beneficial effects on health. Substances HHC and H4CBD then prove that cannabis hides several surprises. Let's take a look at these four cannabinoids and compare their properties and effects!

Do you know the differences between CBD, HHC and H4CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a direct derivative of hemp and is extracted from the plant most often with carbon dioxide, thanks to which the purest product is obtained without heavy metals and pesticides. Some manufacturers use other methods, such as extraction using solvents and vegetable oils.

HHC and H4CBD are synthetic cannabinoids. HHC is produced by hydrogenating THC, i.e. adding hydrogen to its molecules. This substance is also synthesized from CBD or CBN. The substance H4CBD is then obtained by hydrogenating CBD, specifically by adding four hydrogen atoms to its molecule.

A trinity that gets along with the endocannabinoid system

From the above, it follows that of this trio, only CBD is a true natural derivative of hemp, differing from HHC and H4CBD in its chemical formula and structure. What other differences are there between these three substances?

  • CBD minimally interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors, but can modulate their activity.
  • H4CBD probably has a higher interaction with the CB1 receptor and also binds to the CB2 receptor.
  • HHC is characterized by a reported high interaction to the CB1 receptor and low binding to the CB2 receptor.

How is CBD, HHC and H4CBD likely to work?

In what way could individual substances affect the body? Based on the experience of users who report these effects:

1. Effects of CBD

  • Pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Reducing anxiety and stress
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Support of cognitive functions
  • Strengthening immunity
  • Alleviation of skin problems

CBD works with the body's endocannabinoid system, which acts as a "regulatory system" and affects many important functions. CB1 and CB2 receptors are part of this system. CB1 is found in the brain and nervous system, while CB2 is found in the immune system, tissues and glands. Cannabidiol does not bind directly to these receptors, but affects their activity, helping to regulate functions in the body and alleviate various health problems.

2. Effects of HHC

  • It causes euphoria
  • It gives energy
  • Improves sleep
  • It works against stress

HHC has a similar structure to THC, but is less psychoactive. It works by binding to receptors in the brain and body. HHC consists of two stereoisomers (compounds with the same general formula but a different structural arrangement of atoms in the molecule), one of which is active and the other inactive. The active stereoisomer binds to receptors and produces effects characteristic of this substance.

3. Effects of H4CBD

  • It is similar in many ways to CBD, but has a stronger and faster effect and induces a mild euphoria.

H4CBD binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and body, influencing mood, psyche and bodily functions. Due to its potency, it is important to start with low doses and see how it affects you.

H4CBD: Improved CBD or rather new HHC?

So the question is whether H4CBD is an improved version of CBD or rather a new HHC. These are different substances with different structure, effects and method of production. The same goes for HHC. Likewise, HHC is distinguished from THC. Although similar in origin (HHC is a hydrogenated form of THC and H4CBD is a hydrogenated form of CBD), they differ in their effects on the body.

Looking for a nature trail? Bet on CBD

If you are looking for purely natural products, cannabidiol will be the most suitable choice. If you like to experiment and are not against mild psychoactive effects, you might be more interested in HHC and H4CBD. Due to the current ban on HHC or THC-P substances, it comes into consideration HHCPO. Cannabidiol can be enjoyed in various forms such as CBD drops, oils, capsules or increasingly popular fruit CBD candies.
