What is Delta 10?

The most popular and beloved cannabinoid, Delta-9, and its highly prized counterpart Delta-8 have been dominating the industry over the last year. Delta-8 is well-known for its more mild psychoactive effects compared to Delta-9 and has been a total game-changer for both consumers and companies. 

Delta-10, a newly identified cannabinoid discovered by accident has both researchers, sellers, and consumers eager to learn more.

Let us now introduce Delta-10! 

Is Delta-10 safe?

Since Delta-10 is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid, it is extremely important to purchase products that have reputable third-party laboratory testing analysis. Accredited laboratories produce Delta-10 using safe techniques that can be verified through a certificate of analysis. 

Delta-10 has also been occasionally mistaken for Delta 3 which makes lab testing even more critical to be able to determine that a product actually carries Delta-10. Without a proper COA, there is a possibility that a manufacturer may be using harmful substances to re-create a similar chemical reaction.

Can Delta-10 get you high?

Delta-10 does contain psychotropic properties that are similar to Delta-9 and can therefore make you high. However, the effects have been compared to that of Delta-8 rather than Delta-9. Meaning, the effects of Delta-10 tend to be slightly less potent than Delta-9. It has been mentioned that Delta-10’s effects tend to be more energizing compared to Delta-8’s more sedative effects. 

The benefits of Delta-10 are still being researched, however, there is potential that the cannabinoid can offer more relief options to those who may want something stronger than CBD but not quite as powerful and psychoactive as Delta-9.
