So, you know what delta-9 THC is, and you know what delta-8 THC is. So, now it is time to learn about delta-10 THC.
This article aims to answer all of your queries about this cannabinoid, or at least whet your appetite with some knowledge about it, as we are still discovering it for ourselves.
First, let us discuss what it is. Delta-10 THC is one of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. There are hundreds of cannabinoids, so you might say this is “one in a million”.
However, the cannabinoid appears in tiny amounts. Extracting it would be too time-consuming and costly to do it naturally. It is so rare that many labs mislabel it as CBL, CBC, or other cannabinoids.
Is Delta-10 THC Legal?
As of right now, delta-10 THC derived from cannabis is not legal on a federal level, since, in many states, cannabis is viewed as a Schedule I Controlled Substance. But, when extracted from hemp, delta-10 THC becomes a bit of a murky subject.
The DEA states that all synthetically-derived tetrahydrocannabinol are Schedule I controlled substances. But, here is the issue: the DEA did not define what “synthetically-derived” means.
As a result, you now have companies such as Delta EFFEX promoting and producing compliant, fully legal, and effective delta-10 THC crafted from safe, pure, and potent CBD.
Is Delta-10 THC Safe?
Says David Reckles, third-party testing is critical for delta-10 THC goods, even more so than other hemp products. Why is this?
“Delta-10 THC products aren’t like smokable flowers,” he says. These include only the dried flower, and if delta-10 THC goods are not made by professional lab workers who are knowledgeable, safe, well-trained, and compliant with testing/manufacturing guidelines, they could be creating a toxic product that has users inhaling “highly toxic pollutants.”
So, what are we talking about here? Well, it could mean that some delta-10 THC products contain stuff like residual solvents or harmful pesticides.
