For a long time, Cannabis has been a source of self-care and relief. Results from a Gallup poll revealed that 14% of Americans consider themselves regular consumers of CBD. The newest trend among those users is a THC variant called Delta 10.

The discovery of Delta 10 THC was, as often happens in the pharmaceutical industry, accidental. As it happens, researchers at Fusion Farms California were extracting THC distillate from a batch of adulterated cannabis when mysterious crystals, misidentified as cannabinoids CBL and CBC, formed. After months of research they identified these crystals and named them Delta 10 THC.

A benefit that helps make this compound popular is the extent to which it gets psychoactive: the high that the Delta 10 THC flower gives is a less intense high as compared to that of Delta 8 and Delta 9. Because Delta 10 THC has a weaker binding affinity to the CB1 receptors it releases the signature mildness that many have come to enjoy.

What is Delta 10?

Delta 10 is one of the many cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant. It is popular for its topnotch “stoning” effect. The compound is difficult to extract, which is why the synthesized version is more common. Delta 10 is great for stimulating alertness, creativity, and productivity, but it is a cannabinoid, so it is important to remember that users can fail a drug test. Most testing facilities cannot differentiate between the many THC isomers.

Is Delta 10 THC Legal?

That depends on the location in the US. Delta 10 THC may exist in a legally grey area. Where marijuana is a controlled substance, Delta 10 THC products are illegal.

Benefits of Delta 10 THC

Research is only beginning on this product due to its unique nature. But this is changing. Below are the benefits of this product:

1. It has a much higher psychoactive experience than CBD. Many prefer this to CBD.

2. It has a higher purity compared to alternative products sold in the streets. Laboratory processes remove pesticides, vitamin e acetate, residual solvents and other contaminants.

3. They are usually produced from plants that had less than 0.3% delta 9 THC

4. The refreshing feeling makes it very appropriate for daytime use.

5. It doesn’t produce unwanted side effects such as paranoia and anxiety. This makes it more enjoyable for many users.

Where to buy Delta-10 THC Products

At this time, demand for Delta-10 products exceeds supply. In some states, it can be bought online. In the retail environment, some stores carry Delta 10 THC, while others do not yet. This includes novelty stores, vape stores or even from your local gas stations. Before selecting a brand, consumers should be sure they provide comprehensive certificates of analysis. Delta 10 THC products also come in raw distillate and disposable vapes. 

Consumed as edibles, disposables, extracts or pre-rolls, Delta-10 is an interesting new cannabinoid. Producers recommend beginning with smaller doses of flower ac and increasing dosage after understanding its effects on you.
