Delta 10 THC is a powerful cannabinoid native to the hemp flower. It’s very similar to Delta 8 THC in the way it’s made; THC is extracted from the Hemp plant, then the Delta 10 THC is isolated and made into a distillate that is found in our products with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.
Unlike Delta-9 however, Delta-10 appears in such trace amounts that you’d waste an exhaustive amount of time and plant material trying to extract it from natural strains. In fact, Delta-10 is so elusive, laboratories often misidentify the compound for CBC or CBL using standard High Performance Liquid Chromatography methods.
Essentially, Delta 10 THC is similar to Delta 9 THC found in Cannabis, but Delta 10 THC is found to be slightly chemically different than Delta 9 THC.
While very little research has been done on its mechanism of action in the body, Delta-10 THC likely interacts with the endocannabinoid system in a similar way as other THC compounds. Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC have binding affinities towards CB1 receptors in the brain and nervous system, which produce varying levels of psychotropic effects. Delta-10 may interact similarly with CB1 receptors at high concentrations.
