FAQs

What is HHC?

HHC stands for hexahydrocannabinol and is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant.HHC was discovered by chemist Roger Adams in the 1940s.

Is HHC legal to buy?

Yes, HHC is legal to buy in the EU. HHC does not comply with the Austrian and German Narcotics Act and the "New Psychoactive Substances Act".

What is the effect of HHC?

Everyone reacts differently. It is better to be patient and try a small amount the first time you use it. Warda Has Premium high tested and reveals in the post "HHC effect - we tested the CBD and THC alternative" all about them Effect of HHC!

What is the difference between HHC and THC?

HHC stands for hexahyrdocannabinol and, like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is a cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, HHC is not illegal. HHC does not fall under the Austrian and German Narcotics Act and the New Psychoactive Substances Act.

How is HHC made?

Hemp-based HHC is a sustainable alternative to natural HHC, which is only found in very small amounts in the plant. Through the use of high pressure and hydrogen, CBD is converted into HHC, 100% conforming to the molecular structure of natural HHC. Although HHC is not derived directly from the hemp plant, it is a natural hemp-based product and can therefore be considered a semi-synthetic cannabinoid.

Are there quality differences at HHC?

In any case. Different means can be used in the manufacturing process described. It is important that the work is done hygienically and professionally in order to obtain a pure and high-quality product afterwards.

How to check the quality of HHC?

 That can only be done in the laboratory. It depends on several factors: 

  • On the one hand it is important, as with all new substances, that there is no toxicity. We tested our extract for safety in a lab and found that HHC is as safe as CBD.
  • On the other hand, there are always two variants in HHC, the R and the S variant. Only the R variant is interesting for us. Therefore, the right ratio of S and R is important. Our HHC consists of 68% HHC R and 32% HHC S.

  • Our manufacturer tests for the 46 most common solvents or solvents. their residues with a HS-GC-MS/MS. Link to certificate 
  • ICP-MS excludes cadmium, arsenic, lead and mercury contamination.

Is HHC safe?

Next to one Cannabinoid Analyse we examined our HHC even more closely.

For this we carried out tests on cells to check the safety. Conclusion: CBD, HHC and THC are exactly the same safe.

Here it should be added that we can only speak of the extract we use. Since different types of production can be selected for HHC, each HHC must be tested individually.

We had an expert report entitled "Physiological-toxicological and structural differences between HHC, the naturally occurring cannabinoids and the synthetic cannabinoids (cannabinoid mimetics)".

A quote from the abstract
“Even if there is no information on the receptor affinity of HHC in the literature, it can be assumed that both its TOi Values as well as its toxicity are significantly lower compared to the known natural cannabinoids and especially to the non-structurally related cannabinoid mimetics. This is also likely to be the case for its metabolites.”

Furthermore, one can assume that with hexahydrocannabinol, in addition to the higher stability of the molecule and the general reduced toxicity, the neurotoxicity due to the hydrogenation of the active centers is to be assessed as weak as with substances with a similar structure of the cannabinoid series.

What are live terps?

Our strains are always defined by the terpene profile used. Our HHC products use live terps. Our Live Terps have different natural terpene compositions depending on the strain. Details can be found in the respective product descriptions.

Live terps are harvested fresh from the plant before they are dried. Depending on the strain, the fresh plants are distilled from either outdoor or indoor cultivation. Thus, all essential oils formed by the hemp plant can be extracted.

 

What is the difference between terpenes and live terps?

The big difference to terpenes, which are obtained in the dry state, is that a large proportion is already volatilized during the drying process. Our Magic Sticks with Live Terps therefore have a unique aroma reminiscent of mint.

 Unfortunately, clone terpenes, where only 4-8 monoterpenes are mixed together, are often used to replicate or mimic the aroma of certain strains. So don't let the names "Amnesia Haze" and co. fool you just because it looks familiar.

You can find the natural terpene composition of our varieties as an image in the product description and also directly here: Terpenanalyse

How long will a Premium High cartridge last?

1ml HHC corresponds to approx. 10-15g flowers. This corresponds to approx. 400 to 600 moves.

Can the Premium High cartridge be refilled with liquid or do you have to buy a new one every time?

HHC is very sticky and without heating the liquid it is extremely difficult to process. We will soon also offer HHC in small glasses for professionals to refill themselves, but it should be noted that the glass must be heated beforehand (either in a water bath or with a lighter).

The cartridge has cotton at the bottom which will wear out over time, so we advise against using it for too long. We recommend a maximum refill of 3 times.

What do I do if the Premium High cartridge sticks?

This is very rare, and if you don't remove the silicone cap, it's even less likely.

But if it does happen: Clean the hole in the black ceramic element with a toothpick, separate the cartridge from the battery and clean the contacts there as well.

Heat the cartridge vertically (e.g. in a small cup) in the oven at 60°C. In winter it can happen more easily that the HHC mass becomes too solid. If you don't have an oven at hand, you can also heat the cartridge with a lighter until the extract in the cartridge is liquid.

How do I know that my battery is empty?

If the light flashes when you use it, it is a sign that the battery is about to run out. Simply screw the USB charger to the battery and charge for approx. charge for 2 hours.

If you think your battery is empty, but it might be the cartridge, you can test it as follows:
Unscrew the cartridge from the battery and pull on the battery. If everything works, the battery will light up at the bottom. This indicates that the cartridge is clogged from the cold. You can place the cartridge upright in the pipe at approx. 60°C or heat briefly with a lighter until the extract is liquid again. Then you can sip on it again with pleasure and enjoy the aroma.

Attention: The battery is fully charged before the first use and can be used directly.

Can HHC be detected in a drug test?

A urine test will test for HHC as a false positive for THC. A blood test specifically checks for active THC. HHC is not found here, the test is negative. This also shows that there is no THC in the body when consuming HHC.
