Is hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) Federally Legal?
HHC is federally legal and legal in most states in the USA thanks to H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill.
The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. For reference, our edibles are infused with HHC derived from federally legal hemp. This means they are federally legal, thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018.
The relevant language from the 2018 Farm Bill is listed below, along with links to the original text.
