HHC in Germany: Legal, forbidden or in the gray area?

The cannabis community is faced with a burning question: Is HHC legal in Germany? With the advent of HHC flower and vape products, this debate has gained momentum. We shed light on the background and current legal situation.

What is HHC and why is it so popular?

Definition: HHC, also called hexahydrocannabinol, is a cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in the cannabis plant.

Effect: HHC has a psychoactive effect and is similar in effect to THC, although the experience with HHC can be milder depending on the dosage.

Comparison with THC: Due to the similar effects of HHC and THC, many might suspect that HHC is illegal. But the matter is more complicated.

HHC flowers and vape: The boom in online trading

It is hard to miss that HHC products, especially HHC flowers and vapes, are available in numerous online shops. Everyone just wants them. But is the purchase and consumption of these products legal in Germany?

Is HHC legal in Germany?

Despite the growing popularity of HHC flowers and vape products, the legal situation is not clear:

NpSG and HHC: According to the New Psychoactive Substances Act, artificially produced cannabinoids are prohibited. However, HHC, which is derived from the cannabis plant, does not necessarily fall under this ban.

Producer position: Since HHC is obtained by hydrogenating the cannabis plant, many producers view it as a semi-synthetic cannabinoid. For them, HHC is therefore legal and not affected by the NpSG.

BtMG and HHC: Since HHC is not listed in the Narcotics Act, many assume that HHC products are legal in Germany.

Is there a risk of a HHC ban in Germany?

In view of the intoxicating effects of HHC and potential side effects, a possible ban is in the offing:

Observation European body: This institution has been observing HHC since December 2022. Depending on their findings, the legal situation in the EU and therefore also in Germany could change.

Legal situation in Austria: As a reference point we can look to Austria. Although synthetic HHC is legal there, the Ministry of Health recently classified it as a new psychoactive substance and therefore banned it.

HHC law in other countries?

The regulations vary here as well. In some countries HHC is completely banned, in some countries the regulations may be being evaluated, in some it is still a gray area, like in Germany and in some countries it is even legal.
