9-Nor-9β-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol (9-Nor-9beta-HHC, sometimes incorrectly confused with 11-nor-9β-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol)[1],is a cannabinoid first discovered from early modifications to the structure of THC, in a search for the simplest compound that could still fulfill the binding requirements to produce cannabis-like activity.[2][3]

11-Hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol is the structurally related methylene homologue of 11-Nor-9β-hydroxyhexahydrocannabinol that has been found as a minor active metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol, and also a metabolite of the trace cannabinoid hexahydrocannabinol.[4]
