Cannabis is such a moving target these days that it’s nearly impossible to stay on top of all of the news. Whether we’re talking about the latest states to legalize, new products rolling out, or what’s happening here at home in Illinois, it’s a lot to keep up with. In addition, we now hear new scientific discoveries all time when it comes to the plant. So what are all these cannabinoids, and where and how do you get them? We’ve talked about some of them in the past, and now here’s how to get Delta 10 THC.
Now there’s Delta 10? Didn’t you mention that already?
We’ve talked about Delta 8, previously. We’ve also talked about Delta 9, which is the traditional THC that you’ve been familiar with for years. Similar to these other two, Delta 10 is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids you can find in hemp and cannabis. However, you can only find Delta 10 in trace amounts naturally in the plant.
Ok, so what does it do, exactly?
Delta 10 will definitely get you high. However, the high is different than that of traditional THC. The high you get from Delta 10 is lower, similar to how Delta 8 gives you a less intense high. However, users report that Delta 10’s high feels like more of a sativa, while Delta 8‘s is closer to an indica.
So what does that mean? Users say that Delta 10 helps them with creativity, giving them more of a energetic, euphoric feeling, perfect for daytime use. They also report that they get this without the paranoia that sometimes comes with traditional THC usage.
So is Delta 10 legal?
It’s legal only if it’s derived from hemp. That said, even this legality exists in a weird gray zone as of this writing. So it’s really best to stay on top of the news as it evolves so that you stay within the confines of the law.
Why is Delta 10 only available in trace amounts naturally, and so hard to get?
To understand all of that, you need to know how Delta 10 has become more trendy in recent months. There’s a rapidly spreading urban legend that goes something like this: A California cannabis company bought cannabis, grown outdoors, to produce concentrates. Apparently, unbeknownst to them at the time, the cannabis had been treated with a fire retardant to protect this outdoor grow from the California wildfires.
Unaware of the use of this retardant, the company still went ahead with the extraction in order to produce the concentrates. They then discovered that crystals with an unfamiliar structure were forming. Upon testing this extraction, they found it similar to CBC, but still unique. So after sending the distillate off to a testing facility, they discovered that the cannabinoid was Delta 10.
Obviously, producing Delta 10 with fire retardant is not the most effective or healthy way to produce the cannabinoid on a mass consumption level. As a result, labs and companies are researching healthier and more eco-friendly food grade additives to act as a catalyst to develop it.
But can I actually get Delta 10?
Yes, you can purchase it now. And since Delta 10 derived from hemp is legal, or at least not illegal, you can make interstate purchases. Effex carries a line of products, including tinctures and cartridges. They have good reviews and fair pricing, so they’re definitely worth checking out.
Expect to see more companies and products come to market in this space quickly, as Delta10 awareness spreads.
Scientists have determined that there are more than 100 cannabinoids in the plant, and there’s so much we have to learn about them, as well as what they can do. We also hear that there are more on the horizon, including Delta 12, which we’ll have an article on soon. So check back with us often, in order to get the latest updates on trends, reviews, business-to-business and more, as we have them.
