Introducing Delta 10 THC (Delta 10-Tetrahydrocannabinol)
If you’re a cannabis enthusiast, you’re probably already familiar with Delta-9-THC, a commonly used psychoactive cannabinoid. (It is often referred to as delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol or just THC.) You may also be familiar with Delta-8 THC, a cannabinoid with a chemical structure similar to THC that can be extracted from legal hemp. It appears to have comparable therapeutic effects while producing a mild high
Another cannabis variant has recently gained considerable attention. Have you heard of Delta 10, the latest cannabinoid to hit the market? Ironically, this still-mysterious cannabinoid was discovered entirely by mistake. And this blog will teach you everything you need to know about this novel cannabinoid.
What is Delta 10?
We’ll begin by delving into its structure. That way, you’ll have a better grasp on what matters most – the effects.
It is comparable to delta 8 in that both are isomers of delta 9 THC (often referred to as “THC”). You’re undoubtedly familiar with the carbon chain overview by now, but in case you missed it:
Delta 9’s double bond is located on the ninth carbon chain; delta 8’s is located on the eighth carbon chain; and — you guessed it — delta 10’s is located on the tenth carbon chain. This demonstrates their similarity.
All three have varying degrees of interaction with our endocannabinoid system.
Delta 10-THC, or Delta 10-Tetrahydrocannabinol, is a novel, cutting-edge cannabinoid (produced from hemp) that produces psychoactive effects and euphoric feelings comparable to those associated with typical cannabis use. Additionally, these cannabinoids are recognized for their anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, appetite-stimulating, and stress-relieving qualities. It is a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) derivative found in minute concentrations in the cannabis plant.
As with other tetrahydrocannabinols, when taken by humans, it can produce a psychotropic high. Nonetheless, it is less potent than delta-9-THC, the kind present in the majority of marijuana.
D10 is found in minute trace levels and cannot be isolated from cannabis plant material. Rather than that, manufacturers synthesize it from more abundant cannabinoids such as CBD (Hemp)
How is it made, is Delta 10 synthetic?
No, it is not a synthesized substance. Even though we can’t extract enough without a touch of magic (or, as we now refer to it, chemistry), it is still a perfectly natural cannabinoid that occurs naturally in the plant.
We simply expedite the process to ensure that there is plenty to share.
You can express your gratitude later.
Scientists have known about this cannabinoid for some time, with Raphael Mechoulam detailing its synthesis in a 1984 publication. However, doctor Mechoulam’s procedures required strong chemicals and were unsuitable for consumable products.
It is synthesized in the same way that delta 8 is. To begin, the manufacturer extracts CBD from hemp (which is critical because it is only legal if it is hemp-derived). Delta 10 is found at significantly lower concentrations than delta 8, making extraction difficult without a unique isomerization technique.
Due to the substantial refining required, it is more rare and expensive than delta 8.
What are the effects of Delta 10 THC?
Bear in mind that this is an area of investigation for researchers, and nothing is confirmed. This is not the only area in which D10, other cannabinoids, and the ECS may be considered for future treatment. Additionally, this list is not exhaustive. It could be several pages long, but we’re going to spare you.
This one is unsurprising, given that severe pain is a common basis for medicinal marijuana prescriptions.
However, the high is not for everyone. Or perhaps they enjoy it but must attend to other responsibilities such as a job or child care
It may be a suitable substitute for marijuana in the treatment of pain, while it may not provide the same level of relief. Nonetheless, it is beneficial for patients to have alternatives to opiates and marijuana.
Again, this comes as no surprise. Naturally, most of the Delta Variants have an effect on your mood. Occasionally for the worse, as when delta 9 causes you to mistrust the pizza delivery guy’s motives and the reason for the neighbor’s dog staring at you, or when you become frustrated by everyone else’s incessant giggling.
Generally, this is a positive thing — particularly when it comes to D10. As previously stated, it is improbable that you will become insanely worried or obsess over everything you said ten years ago. Rather than that, you’re more likely to feel somewhat optimistic about life, perhaps even encouraged and driven.
However, research indicates that the impacts may be more profound. It is possible — research indicates a link between anomalies in the ECS and psychiatric and mood problems; cannabinoids have shown promise in treating these diseases.
That may sound hazy and generic, but it is truly that broad.
Any contact with the ECS, no matter how minor, has an effect on a slew of other variables. Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CED) is one theory. It theorizes that a deficiency of endocannabinoids (or a decline in their action) is a cause of a variety of health problems, including psychosomatic ones.
Psychosomatic illnesses, such as migraines, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome, appear to have no underlying cause. Professionals are perplexed as to what causes these difficulties, which appear to exist for no apparent reason.
CED may very well be the source, and determining the source is the most effective approach to determine treatment.
D10 and other cannabinoids may be used to supplement or replace endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by the ECS), thereby assisting in the treatment of certain disorders.
Even if it is not used to treat CED, it may benefit overall health by lowering inflammation and protecting the brain from premature degeneration.
We are a long way from fully understanding what cannabinoids are capable of and how to use them medicinally, but we can see the potential.
Is it legal?
Since products contain only Delta 10-THC made from 100% Hemp extract, companies are able to fully legally manufacture, distribute and sell to consumers in the United States.
According to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and its derivatives are allowed as long as their THC content is less than 0.3 percent. While delta 8 THC is permitted on a federal level, several states have already prohibited it (even ones that have legalized marijuana), and this new cannabinoid may follow suit.
Though it is considered legal at the federal level, some states have moved to ban it. Check here to see if your state is one of them
What Can I do if THC is illegal in my state?
Never Fear, if Delta 8 and THC derivatives are banned in your state we have something for you too! Check out our blog on HHC and see if HHC is right for you!
Is it safe?
It is safe to consume.
The safety must be seen in the same light as its legality. There is a lack of literature on the subject. Nonetheless, there is sufficient data to suggest that frequent cannabis usage may have a therapeutic effect on spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, persistent neuropathic pain, and nausea.
Delta 10 in comparison to other cannabinoids
Due to a scarcity of scientific research on Delta 10, comparing it to other cannabinoids might be difficult. However, existing scientific literature and anecdotal reports from users highlight the key distinctions between Delta 10 and other cannabinoids. Some have obvious distinctions, while others operate in a fairly similar manner.
- Delta 10 vs. Delta 9
D10 and D9 THC are perhaps the most similar cannabinoids, as both are largely renowned for their psychoactive effects. Delta 9 THC, on the other hand, is significantly more potent and produces a heavy buzz, whilst Delta 10 produces a more mild effect.
Both have similar adverse effects, including red eyes, dry mouth, and elevated heart rate.
Unlike D9, which has numerous established medicinal applications, D10 currently lacks any.
- Delta 10 vs. Delta 8
These two also have a lot in common in terms of their effects. Due to the fact that both are relatively young, additional research is necessary before determining the precise distinctions between D8 and D10.
Finally, they both possess psychedelic characteristics. According to early research, the primary difference between D8 and D10 is that D8 is less strong and more relaxing, whereas D10 is euphoric and uplifting.
Will Delta 10 show up on a drug test?
Yes, due to its tight relationship to Delta 9 THC. Bear in mind that Delta 10 may still cause you to fail a drug test. Today, the majority of testing facilities are unable to discriminate between various THC isomers. This suggests that it may test positive for Delta 9 THC. If you are aware that you may be submitted to drug testing, you should abstain from utilizing THC products entirely.
