What is Delta 10? Delta-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol
Delta 10 THC is a synthetic isomer created in 1980 which is (until recently) most commonly found in impure Delta 8 products and is thought to be created my the degradation of Delta 8. Delta 10 is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, but it is very rare. The Delta 10 that is being sold in hemp products is NOT naturally occurring. In fact, it is made in a lab and there is a very good chance, it was not an FDA or GMP facility.
The Delta 10 found in hemp products is made in a lab by converting CBD to Delta 10. The process of converting the CBD is by no means a simple process and the chemicals used are acids, similar to battery acid. There are reputable labs creating Delta 10 but it is almost impossible to trace a product back to the lab it was made. Regulations in the hemp CBD industry are very lacks and it creates subpar products on the market that could be hazardous to your health.
Will Delta 10 get you high?
Yes, Delta 10 is Delta 9’s and Delta 8’s little brother. Similar to Delta 9, Delta 10 will get you high, but nowhere near the effects of Delta 9. Delta 10 has less of effect then Delta 9 and Delta 8.
Delta 10 vs Delta 8
Delta 8, Delta 9 and Delta 10 will all get you high. Each cannabinoid has its own effects The effects can also be changed by the terpene profile in the product. Terpenes interact with cannabinoids in what is called the Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect is the reason different cannabis strains have different effects which some people refer to as Indica or Sativa.
Delta 8 is about half as strong as Delta 9 and Delta 10 is about half as strong as Delta 8. Delta 8 has been reported to created some anxiety or paranoia, feelings which are also caused by Delta 9. Delta 10 is a very mild high and is thought to be best for first time cannabis users.
What are the differences: Delta 8 vs Delta 10?
The molecular structure of delta-8 causes a more potent high than delta-10. Delta 10 also interacts with your endo-cannabinoid system differently then Delta 8, mainly the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors. Delta 8 has a double bond on the 8th carbon and Delta 10 has a double bond on the 10th carbon which is why Delta 8 gets you more high than Delta 10. Basically the lower the bond on the carbon, the higher you will get because it binds to your receptors for a longer time
What are the differences: Delta 10 vs HHC?
Delta 10 is actually a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis while HHC is strictly synthetic. That being said, Delta 10 and Delta 8 are still made in a lab because it is more cost effective. The “high” from HHC is different as well. It takes a stronger dose to get the same effects as Delta 8 or Delta 10. Rumor has it that HHC will not show up on a drug test as well.
Is Delta 10 safe?
Delta 10 is safe to consume. it is more important you find a reputable company to buy Delta 10 because there are certain chemicals used in the extraction and conversion process that are harmful to your health.
