What is 11-HXY THC?
11-HXY THC (11-hydroxy THC) is a semi-synthesized cannabinoid that replicates the metabolite produced in the liver when we consume delta 9 edibles. Delta 9 converts into a new metabolite called 11-hydroxy THC, which affects us differently from delta 9 THC.
How is Delta 11 THC Different from 11-hydroxy THC?
Delta 11 THC is commonly confused with 11-hydroxy THC. The latter is a metabolite that THC converts into once it reaches the liver, to get broken down and become THC-COOH, the metabolite notorious for causing a positive drug test result. Delta 11 THC is not 11-hydroxy THC, but you may come across some confusion while researching the cannabinoid.
How Does 11-HXY THC Work?
Although research on 11-HXY THC is still in its early stages, there is evidence to suggest that it may interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), just like CBD and other cannabinoids. Those who have tried it describe the high as identical to the effects they get from delta 9 edibles, in that the effects are more relaxing, body-oriented, and long-lasting.
What are the Potential Benefits of 11-HXY THC?
Research on HXY-11 THC is still in its early stages, but it likely offers the same benefits that delta 9 THC does, when taken in edible form.
Is 11-HXY THC Psychoactive?
Yes, 11-HXY THC is psychoactive, and likely feels exactly like the high you get from eating a THC edible. The high may last for up to 8 hours regardless of the type of product you’ve taken.
What Kinds of 11-HXY THC Products are There?
11-HXY THC can come in many product forms, as the distillate can be infused into various formulas, including:
- Vapes (Disposable Vape Pens and Cartridges)
Are There Any Side Effects of 11-HXY THC?
11-HXY THC is likely safe, but more research is needed to fully understand its potential side effects. Some people may experience mild side effects like dry mouth or dizziness, but these are typically rare and not severe. Basically, the side effects are the same as what you’d potentially experience from delta 9 THC.
Can 11-HXY THC Show Up on a Drug Test?
It’s likely that 11-HXY THC would cause a failed drug test result, because it converts into THC-COOH just like delta 9 THC, which is what drug tests are looking for.
Is 11-HXY THC Legal?
The legality of 11-HXY tHC can vary by country and region. In some places, it may be legal, while in others, it may be subject to restrictions. It's essential to check your local laws and regulations regarding 11-HXY THC, and other intoxicating cannabinoids that may be under a blanket ban in some states.
Can 11-HXY THC Be Used in Combination with Other Cannabinoids?
Yes, some individuals use 11-HXY THC with other cannabinoids. You can find products that already offer cannabinoid blends, which include this cannabinoid and others in one formula.
Can I Take 11-HXY THC with My Medications?
If you are taking any medication, please consult your doctor prior to beginning an 11-HXY THC routine. The cannabinoid may suppress CYP3A4 levels in the body, which may interfere with the body’s ability to metabolize certain medications.
