Delta-9 THC is the illicit compound that can make you high, euphoric and possibly paranoid. Delta-8 THC is another molecular neighbor you can make from legal hemp to produce mildly psychoactive effects.
What is Delta-10 THC?
Delta-10 THC, one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp. Delta-10 THC is not present in large quantities like Delta-9, so it’s difficult to extract from natural strains. Extraction Magazine reports that Delta-10 is so difficult to identify, labs often misidentify it for CBC and CBL using standard High Performance Liquid Chromatography methods.
What Does Delta-10 THC Do to the Body?
Although little has been known about the mechanism of Delta-10 THC’s action in the body it is likely that it interacts with the same way as other THC compounds. Delta-9 THC, and Delta-8 THC both have binding affinities to CB1 receptors in the brain and nervous system. These compounds produce different levels of psychotropic effects. Delta-10 could interact with CB1 receptors in high concentrations.
Delta-10 THC derived from cannabis is currently illegal. This is due to marijuana being a Schedule 1 controlled substance. Delta-10 THC derived from hemp extract is legal in the legal gray zone.
The DEA has said all “All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances.” The issue with that statement is the DEA has not defined what constitutes “synthetically derived.”
