15 May Why Does HHC Make Me Cough?
The best alternative to Delta 8 or Delta 9 today is HHC, with a much higher adoption rate than any other cannabinoid. As a result, HHC is becoming the new contemporary cannabis favourite.
Despite promising effects and benefits, some people experience unexpected side effects when consuming HHC. Sometimes coughing can be a big issue.
What is HHC?
Trace amounts of HHC are found in industrial hemp. Commonly CBD is extracted from hemp and refined into an isolate; after it is refined, the CBD isolate is synthesized into HHC. As such, HHC requires more processing and is much more expensive than CBD.
Why Does HHC Make Me Cough So much?
A lot of people experience some degree of coughing when using HHC. Like many other vape products on the market, vapour can suppress the function of our salivary glands. This can lead to a kind of localized dehydration within the mouth, lip and throat area. Your throat will lack the saliva that usually keeps it slick and lubricated. It is easier to become itchy and scratchy and promotes coughing.
Another cause of coughing is the presence of terpenes. Terpenes are usually present in both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum vaping liquids. Terpenes cause itching in the throat resulting in coughing.
How To Not Cough So Much From HHC Carts
There are a few methods you can try to help restore moisture in your mouth.
- Hard candy. Sucking on hard candy can increase saliva production and ease coughing.
- Sip cold water. Drinking fluids will decrease dryness.
- Drink warm. You can drink warm fluids to help.
- Chewing gum. Eating gum can increase saliva production and ease coughing.
- Take a break. Limit using vape carts for a while.
There are many more home remedies worth trying, but the bottom line is coughing from all kinds of vapes on the market is expected.
Always consult your doctor first, and never use any vape product without seeking advice.
