HHC vs HHC-O: What are the Differences?

With all of the cannabinoid acronyms on the market, one letter or number can make a world of difference. How do you tell the difference between Delta 8 and Delta 10? What about HHC and HHC-O?

Today, we’re going to focus on two cannabinoids that share similar names: HHC and HHC-O. Below is a look at some of the key differences between them, so you can decide which will work best for you.

What is HHC?

Cultivated from the hemp plant, HHC is a hydrogenated variant of THC. It offers a milder high compared to smoking marijuana, with about 70-80% of the potency. In many states where marijuana use is heavily regulated or restricted, consumers are still able to access and enjoy HHC strains in various mediums such as dabs, prerolls, gummies, vapes, tinctures, and more. 

HHC products are also available in a wide variety of strains and tasty flavors that include but are not limited to Roze, Banana Punch, Super Silver Haze, and Watermelon Ice.

What is HHC-O?

HHC-O is acetate and one of the newest innovations in cannabinoid development. It shares similar properties to Delta 9 THC, with intensity and psychoactive effects more similar to traditional marijuana. 

Like HHC, HHC-O is available in a variety of different products ranging from vapes to gummies, and more. 

How to Decide Between HHC and HHC-O Products:

It all comes down to your preferences, but understanding your options allows you to make a more informed decision.


The intensity of the product is an important factor that you’ll want to consider when deciding between HHC or HHC-O. Depending on your experience with similar products and your desired effects, you’ll want to understand the differences in strength between the two. If you are looking for a milder sensation, HHC is a better choice for you. If you want something more intense, HHC-O will give you what you are looking for.

Strains and Flavors

In choosing a product, you’ll also want to ensure that you enjoy the taste of it. HHC and HHC-O will often be available in a variety of strains and flavors, ranging from sour to sweet and fruity. While both are relatively diverse, HHC has been on the market for longer and you will likely have an easier time finding a wider variety of flavors and strains that are sure to please your palette. 


Your choice of HHC or HHC-O will also depend on how you intend to consume it, whether it be with flowers, vapes, edibles, or another method. Because HHC-O is an acetate, there are not as many product mediums available as traditional HHC. For example, HHC can also be purchased as a flower and preroll, while HHC-O will not be available in these mediums. But not to worry, HHC-O’s are still available in mediums such as tinctures, edibles, and vapes. 

How to Purchase HHC and HHC-O Products in Your Area

In most parts of the US, direct shipping of HHC and HHC-O to consumers is either restricted or prohibited. This means that the best way to find quality HHC and HHC-O products in your area is to visit your local specialty smoke shop or cannabinoid retailer and ask them to order the specific products that you’re interested in for pick up at their location.

A Quick Word about Choosing a Retailer

When you purchase your HHC and HHC-O products, it’s important that you do some research to make sure you’re buying your cannabinoids from a reliable and established retailer. This is so you can be confident that you are receiving your products from a knowledgeable source that can evaluate the quality and safety of a product. That often means you want to avoid buying hemp products from a convenience store.


Gas stations and convenience stores often just want to sell you the cheapest products they can find at very high markups. What’s more, they may not possess the expertise to address your specific questions or concerns. (This is a generalization, but it’s a good rule of thumb to keep in mind.) Most importantly, these products may not have been tested for quality, effectiveness, or safety — which is the standard operating procedure for most higher-end retailers.
