What Is Delta 10 THC?
Delta 10 THC is showing up more and more in the hemp market. With the way new cannabinoids are exploding, let’s take a few minutes to learn a little about the new guy. (It’s not stalking, it’s research.) Here’s all you need to know about delta 10, and whether it’s truly a perfect 10!
What Is Delta 10 THC?
Delta 10 THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid extracted from hemp and cannabis. Like Delta 8 THC, it’s present in trace amounts in natural strains and requires extensive extractions to isolate.
Why are we putting so much effort into extracting this one cannabinoid you ask? Bear with us.
What are the effects?
To answer the above question, it’s because its effects may or may not emulate another cannabinoid that Mary and Jane like to hang out with!
You’ve heard it before: There isn’t enough perspective and research to tell exactly how Delta 10 affects you beyond short-term use. But since we know how other THC compounds interact with the endocannabinoid system, we can assume Delta 10 acts the same way.
As far as the experience you’ll have with Delta 10, for now, all we can go off is a report from Private Label Hemp Lab, that states you may experience a lift comparable to D8 and D9.
But for more to-the-point effects and less politically correct descriptions, all we can rely on for now is the experience of users.
They describe it as a Sativa (if delta 8 were an Indica), perfect for daytime use without the lingering downsides of Delta 9. You can expect some boost in mental energy, creativity, and euphoria.
What are the health benefits?
No research is available yet to confirm that those effects are indeed provided by the use of Delta 10, but here are the benefits users have experienced:
- Pain relief
- Mild increase in energy
- Mild increase in mood
- Appetite stimulant
- Stress relief
- Mental Euphoria
Without research to rely on, those effects can only be explained by following the blueprint of Delta 9 and D8. Delta 10 THC likely interacts and helps balance the endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoid mostly binds to the CB1 receptor in the brain and nervous system, which produces varying levels of psychotropic effects.
Is it legal?
Delta 10’s situation is similar to Delta 8’s legal status. Because it is extracted from Hemp, it is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, it is psychoactive and therefore some states are already starting to legislate to regulate it or straight up ban it.
The DEA has stated that all synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances. However, they failed to give a definition for synthetically derived (extracted from hemp, or fully lab-made). This does not help one bit.
A good way to keep away from legal trouble with Delta 10 are these two things to follow. A.) This list of states can help you make sure you’re in compliance with your local laws. B.) Don’t drive or operate heavy machinery after using Delta 10.
Be smart and careful around those new cannabinoids, don’t go all college freshman on us!
