In this blog, we will explore the chemistry behind two different versions of delta-10-THC you may encounter. Each version may produce different effects and can be individually tested for during potency analysis. Plus, learn about another rare THC isomer, delta-6a,10a-THC.
Legality is a common question that arises with any cannabis associated product. With the passing of the 2018 farm bill, many lesser known cannabinoids are becoming increasingly popular. Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC, HHC, and THC-O are all hemp derived cannabinoids that can produce psychoactive effects similar to those found in traditional cannabis. Many people don’t even know these compounds exist and if they do they may assume the cannabinoids are illegal, but due to the farm bill they are actually all legal on the federal level. Recently though, many states have been implementing individual restrictions and laws on the hemp-derived compounds. We’ll take a closer look at the legality of delta 8 specifically Colorado as they recently passed a new law that may be confusing for some.
Take some time to get to know THC-O, a cousin of the more well-known hemp-derived compound, Delta 8 THC.
The numbers used to differentiate the delta-8, delta-9, and delta-10 versions of THC can understandably be confusing unless you happen to have a background in chemistry. Let us breakdown why each version of THC has a different number, and what they mean!
Find answers here to some common questions to learn more about the novel cannabinoid, delta-10-THC, and see how it differs from the more common delta-9 and delta-8 versions of THC.
