Delta-10 THC is one of the cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants. There are other “deltas” you may have heard of too. The main component of cannabis that people associate with the “high” is known as delta 9. Delta-8 THC has also been quite popular lately, as it provides some lesser effects than delta-9. But what is Delta 10 THC?
What is Delta-10 THC?
Delta-10 THC was discovered by accident by a farm in California called Fusion Farms. There is still not sufficient research on Delta-10 THC, though it is said to likely interact similarly to other THC compounds. Researchers have found that Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC bind to the C1 receptors in our brains, which causes the known psychotropic effects. Though it is still being researched, it is thought that Delta-10 THC works similarly, but it may be less potent than
Many users wonder if Delta-10 will get them high in the same way that Delta-9 does. You may experience a “high” feeling, but it is likely to be a lot less potent. Some people describe Delta-10 as more like sativa, which is generally known to produce a “head high” for users. This means you may experience feelings of alertness, euphoria, increased energy, and increased creativity. In comparison, Delta-8 is described to be more like a indica, meaning it will produce more feelings of a “body high” like increased drowsiness, reduced anxiety, and pain relief.
Is Delta-10 Safe?
Delta-10 is generally safe to consume, but make sure you know its source before using. Some chemicals may be used in the extraction process. Only use Delta-10 products that have been tested in a trusted and reliable lab to ensure any potentially harmful chemicals have been removed.
What forms of Delta-10 are available?
Delta-10 is still a new and upcoming product that is undergoing research. Therefore, it may be more difficult to find on the market. Many brands are hoping to launch Delta-10 products soon, which will be available in all the well-known methods of ingestion that users know of Delta-9 and Delta-8. This will include edibles, such as gummies or chocolate bars, tinctures and oils, disposable pens, vape cartridges, dabbing syringes, and more!
The advantage of using Delta-10 products is that they provide sativa-like effects, meaning they may be suitable for daytime consumption. They may provide an alternative to those seeking to stay away from Delta-9 products. By using lab-tested products of known origin, you’re much safer than illegally obtained substances of unknown origin. This is because lab-tested products are screened and filtered for harmful chemicals such as pesticides or contaminants.
Is Delta-10 THC legal?
Delta-10 is commonly processed from the hemp plant, just as its sister Delta-8 is. As such, it is legal in all United States because hemp is considered legal. However, Delta-10 THC that is derived from cannabis is not legal. Many users wonder if Delta-10 THC will show up on a drug test the same way Delta-9 THC will. It will show up in a urine drug test. Therefore, it is important to stop usage if you’re concerned about drug test results.
