Using HHC is legal and feels fantastic, but will it show up on a drug test?
HHC products are taking the market by storm, especially in areas where Delta 9 THC is not legal. Since HHC is a hemp-derived cannabinoid but still psychoactive, you can get high legally while keeping THC below 0.3%.
But drug testing is another story. There is much speculation on the street and the internet about HHC and drug testing. It is tempting to wonder if HHC does show up on a drug test, and if it shows up, will it cause it to fail?
And at the bottom lies the question, is it possible to get high without getting caught using HHC? Keep reading to learn the answer.

HHC, or hexahydrocannibinol, is a psychoactive cannabinoid. The cannabis plant produces it, but only in trace amounts. Thus, HHC is a minor cannabinoid. Still, manufacturers make HHC by putting regular THC under hydrogenation, causing it to change its molecular structure, turning THC into HHC.
Although HHC will get you high, it is a different cannabinoid than THC. Thus, it is legal to produce, sell and consume under federal law. And after learning how to make HHC in a lab, brands can infuse their products with it and make them available on the market.
That is how the cannabis community has worked its way around the law in states where Delta 9 THC is illegal. Even so, HHC is different from THC.
It is usual to read that HHC mimics THC. But experience says otherwise. While many people report feeling the same psychoactive potency using both cannabinoids, others claim HHC kicks way harder than THC. This difference comes from the particular reaction of the cannabinoid to your body. Then, this point is for you to clarify when trying HHC.
But everyone agrees that HHC offers a clearer high than THC. Also, the terpenes profile tastes more intense when using HHC, which is understandable. As most HHC out there comes from a lab, it is a distillate without terpenes. Thus, HHC products are tinctures, edibles, and vape carts. Brands add natural terpenes profile, making flavors and aromas more intense.
HHC is chemically more stable than THC. Then, brands can put them for longer on their shelves. And more importantly, HHC products are legal while keeping Delta 9 THC concentration under 0.3%.
Like other substances, HHC remains in your body long after consuming it. Even long after psychoactive effects have worn off. Your body keeps breaking down HHC molecules. And it can last for days.
Your body metabolizes 50% of the HHC you consumed 30 minutes after it kicks in. Another 25% disappears 30 minutes after the effects are gone. And the other 25% remains in traces for days.
There will be traces of HHC in your body between 2 and 23 days after your last sesh. This length depends on multiple factors. Remember you learned above that HHC is a chemically stable cannabinoid? This cause HHC to stay longer in your body than other cannabinoids.
But the main factor influencing how much time HHC remains in your body is how much and how frequently you use it. If you give more work to your body, it will take longer to get it done.
HHC does show on a drug test. Don’t let your guard down or believe misinformation saying HHC won’t show on a drug test. HHC is an isomer of Delta 9 THC. It means that their molecules are similar. Thus, the chances of detecting HHC are the same as detecting Delta 9 THC.
In fact, drug tests can’t tell the difference between HHC and THC. So if the test finds HHC, it will read it as THC.
Indeed, there is still much research to do about HHC and how your body metabolizes it. But don’t miss a good job opportunity to have a good time. Unless you can justify your use of cannabinoids for medical purposes.
