Delta 10 THC – What the People Have To Say About It

When it comes to learning about the specific effects of a compound, especially a new cannabinoid, most people want cold, hard, science. Concrete facts they can point to. However, due to decades of illogical overregulation, that isn’t always possible in the cannabis world. Take Delta 10 THC, a brand new, synthetic cannabinoid that is already hitting the market, despite how little we know about it. In this case, the only information we have to work with is anecdotal evidence… so in other words, what do the people have to say about Delta 10 THC and how it impacts their minds and bodies?

What Is Delta 10 THC?

Like many cannabis trends before it, Delta 10 THC started in the Golden State: California. In this case, however, the discovery was purely accidental. It all began when Adelanto-based company Fusion Farms bought some outdoor flower to manufacture concentrates. Because of the wildfire-prone climate in California, the biomass they purchased had been sprayed with fire retardant, but this was unbeknownst to Fusion Farms as they were under the impression the flower they purchased was clean.

Being unaware of the contamination, they continued with the extraction as planned but a different chemical reaction happened this time and some unusual crystals began to form after the distillation process. These crystals had a completely different structure than previously observed cannabinoid crystals. After conducting some laboratory tests, it was determined that these crystals were most similar to CBC (cannabichromene), but still not an exact match.

For several months, they continued testing this compound against all the existing cannabinoids and no match was found. Eventually, they learned that it was yet another variation of tetrahydrocannabinol, formed because of plant exposure to those fire retardants – dubbed Delta 10 THC. So basically, Delta Ten is a synthetic cannabinoid, formed by converting D9 or other cannabinoids using some type of chemical catalyst. In this case, it was fire retardant, but obviously that’s not something people want in their cannabis products, so companies are looking at various – greener – methods of creating Delta 10 THC.

In chemistry, “Delta” refers to the double bond in a compound’s molecular structure. Delta compounds have more electrons and interact with the body in different ways than single bond cannabinoids do. The variation between the Delta THC analogues comes down to where the double bond is located on their chain of carbon atoms. Delta 8 has this bond on the 8th carbon chain, D9 on the 9th chain, and Delta 10 THC has the double bond on the 10th carbon chain. Although it seems miniscule, it makes a substantial difference.

Checking Reddit

Like many of us, my go-to site for public opinions is Reddit. In this case, it was actually the ONLY site that I was able to find anything at all. For the most part, I was just finding a lot of questions; everyone wondering who had tried it and how it feels. A few different sites have reported that it feels similar to Delta 8 THC, but milder. I honestly couldn’t say because I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet (although that will change in about a week, so stay tuned for product reviews).

On Reddit user gave a very detailed description of their experiences with D10 . “So, I recently had the privilege of receiving some distillate that was supposedly high in Delta-10 THC. This cannabinoid is very novel. I can report that the effects are pretty desirable, on its own it seems that it acts in a similar way to D8 compared to D9, with milder effects, but the effects themselves are totally different.”

He continued: “So far I’ve gotten some strong Sativa like feelings off of it, and it seems to be strong, because this material isn’t even THAT high in D10a, and it’s still yielding these results. In combination with other cannabinoids, I’ve noticed that it seems to amplify the effects greatly. I took a hit of D10a immediately followed by a d9 dab, and I felt a noticeable difference in how fast and strong it hit me. I’m not sure what’s going on there. I still need to test oral consumption (I’ll be making gel caps soon).”

Other people – and this situation seems to ring truer – are experiencing shipping and customer service issues and are still waiting to try it for themselves. Take this reddit user who stated: “They ran into supply issues and had to refund my order, they said once they have complaint samples I’ll be getting one for free to try. It’s been a couple of months but I know how this stuff goes, I’m still holding out that they’ll ship me some. I’ve been in recent contact with them.”

Why It Matters

As delta-9 THC is illegal, D10 gives a bit of a loophole to acquire the medical benefits of THC, but legally, and without as much of the jitteriness, paranoia, or overall anxiety that is often experienced with marijuana. This is great news for those who want the therapeutic benefits without as much of a high, as well as for those who are sensitive to THC, and prefer a formulation that gives them the benefits of the psychoactive effects without the negatives of anxiety.

As of now, products are difficult to find because not a lot of companies are manufacturing D10. Because of this, not a lot of people are very familiar with D10 which makes communicating through these online forums that much more important. Through our newsletter, you can purchase vape carts that utilize a blend of Delta 8 and CBN, enriched with Delta 10 distillate. Lab tests put them at roughly 16% D8, 7% CBN, and 57% Delta 10.

How to Test Delta-10 Products to Ensure They Are Real

What to do when a substance is unregulated, but flying off the shelves anyway? The best answer is to make sure there’s some method to test it, to confirm that it is what it’s supposed to be. This is the case for newer forms of THC currently hitting the market. Now, a laboratory has put forth a way to test the authenticity of both delta-8 and delta-10 products, to ensure they are real.

With new ways to test delta-8 and delta-10 products, getting quality vapes and oils is getting much easier. Both of these new THC versions provide slightly different benefits from delta-9, and can be beneficial for people experiencing too much delta-9-related anxiety. We’ve got great delta-8 THC deals for you to check out what it’s like to use an alternate form of THC.

What are delta-8 and delta-10 THCs?

Delta-8 THC – Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring derivative of delta-9 THC, the most commonly understood cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Delta-8 is produced through oxidation when delta-9 THC comes into contact with oxygen, causing small amounts of it to lose electrons, which converts it into delta-8 THC. The only structural difference between the two, is the placement of a double carbon bond. For delta-8, it sits on the 8th atom in the chain, and for delta-9, on the 9th. The chemical structure for both is: C21H30O2.

The two compounds are very similar, producing many of the same medical effects, however, they have some stark differences as well. Delta-8 THC produces less psychoactive effect, so users don’t experience as intense of a high. It also causes less anxiety and paranoia in users, making it the optimal answer for cannabis aficionados who experience a lot of anxiety with delta-9. Delta-8 is also associated with a more clear-headed and energetic high, something that makes it better for physical activities, even athletics.

Delta-8 THC is not newly discovered, but has been known about since around the time delta-9 was found. It was partially synthesized by Roger Adams in 1941, with total synthesis established by Raphael Mechoulam in 1965, along with delta-9 THC which was isolated first in 1964. It was even the subject of medical testing, particularly by Mechoulam, who established delta-8 THC as a treatment for the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatments in kids, actually showing an elimination of vomiting in the children. As we know already though, the world was slow to catch on.

Delta-8 made a resurgence recently with the application of the 2018 US Farm Bill which opened the door for industrial hemp cultivation, and production of hemp-based products. As a naturally occurring derivative of THC that can come from hemp, but one that requires human processing in order to create large enough amounts for use, delta-8 THC might fit into a legal loophole – but not for sure. This has not been specified further to give clarity to the situation by either the DEA’s Interim Final Rule, or the more recent USDA Final Rule. Until the definition of ‘synthetic’ is updated to identify if human processing fits the definition, delta-8 will likely remain legally ambiguous.

Delta-10 THC Delta-10 THC, though nearly identical in structure to both delta-8 and delta-9 THCs, is a little different. The first difference should be obvious. The double carbon bond sits on the 10th atom in the chain. However, more importantly, it cannot be created on its own in nature. It is a 100% synthetic compound that requires human help for chemical processing, which puts it in a different category than its previously mentioned counterparts. We’ll get to why this matters in a second, but for now, let’s take a quick look at the strange story that brought us delta-10 products.

Delta-10 THC was brought to scientific attention later than delta-8 and delta-9, and happened as part of an accident at the company Fusion Farms, in California, in the year 1980. California is the location for raging forest fires, and flame retardant chemicals are used frequently to limit, or stave off, the damage of these fires. Fusion Farms was in the business of creating cannabis oil extracts at the time, and didn’t realize that their outdoor flowers were being contaminated by these (toxic) chemicals.

No one thought it would be an issue at the time, and the company personnel continued producing the oil, just to find strange crystals that had never been seen before, forming. Upon further and more intricate inspection, it was found that these crystals were actually a different form of THC, this time, the never-before-seen delta-10, with the double helix on the 10th atom. So, unlike it’s THC brothers already mentioned, delta-10 can only be synthesized by way of a chemical catalyst, in this case, flame retardant chemicals. Other, safer catalysts, have been used since that time.

Unlike delta-8 and delta-9 which are naturally occurring, and therefore capable of falling under the definition of hemp, delta-10 does not. As such, it remains regulated under DEA criminal code 7370 which lists anything not under the definition of hemp, to be a controlled substance. This goes for all synthetic THC compounds. Whereas the Farm Bill allows hemp derivatives with up to .3% THC, it does not cover synthetics at all, and this means that regardless of the THC quantity in the product, or where the product is sourced from, it’s still illegal.

In that way, delta-10 does not fit into a legal loophole, and remains a schedule I controlled substance for now. Of course, lots of cannabis products fit under this definition federally, but with the growing number of locations in the US and worldwide that have approved legal medical or recreational cannabis programs, the use of delta-10 is perfectly fine in many places. Plus, with such constant changes, and an inability to catch up legislatively, it’s quite possible that being federally illegal won’t stop the growing delta-10 market at all.

How to test delta-8 and delta-10 products

It should be clear from everything just written, that these two compounds are highly unregulated, with confusion about the legal loophole of one, and even more confusion online about the illegality of the other. With no government standard for the production of these products, or standards for final products, users are at the mercy of sellers and their claims, which can often be a dicey prospect.

In fact, without regulation, when dealing with extracts of these kinds, it’s hard for the buyer to know they’re getting the right product at all. Think about how easy it is to buy a vape cartridge without really knowing what’s inside? Sales industries – especially unregulated ones – are not generally known for their complete upstandingness, often passing off fake or low-quality products since, in the most essential way of putting it, no one is legally watching.

And this is where ACS Laboratory comes in. In an effort to institute some sort of testing ability to confirm that these substances are really these substances, ACS created the Potency 12 test to identify delta-8 and delta-10 products. ACS is a DEA-licensed, 3rd party, independent testing facility that provides analysis for products in the cannabis industry.

With the invention of Potency 12, ACS now provides an answer above general industry standards, which haven’t caught up to these new products yet. The Potency 12 test “specifically targets and separates Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC”, according to ACS Laboratory’s principal scientist, Aixia Sun, who also serves as a certified lab director for cannabis. She went on to say, “Many labs cannot test Delta-10 without a DEA license and often misidentify lesser-known analytes as Delta-9 in the process.”

In answer to the question of what creates this difficulty in testing, Sun continued, “The problem is Delta-9 and Delta-8 THC are positional isomers, making it difficult for laboratories to separate the two during testing. Two Delta-10 THC stereoisomers are also challenges because they are so elusive that laboratories often misidentify them for CBC or CBL using the industry-standard methodology.”

ACS isn’t just looking for ways to identify these compounds, it also looks to ensure certain levels of safety. One of the things it continues to do, is develop new and improved safety tests to make sure extracts don’t contain residual solvents in them. The Potency 12 test is actually an offshoot of the standard Potency 11 test, which is already capable of quantifying the total of 12 different cannabinoids: Delta-8, Delta-9, Delta-10, THCA, THCV, CBDA, CBD, CBDV, CBGA, CBG, CBN, and CBC, in products.

delta-10 THC

According to ACS Laboratory president and founder, Roger Brown: “As the hemp industry evolves, laboratories must continuously re-evaluate methods to ensure they are producing valid results… Laboratories who fail to rise to the occasion will ultimately put their clients at risk.”

Conclusion

When it comes to new products in an unregulated market, it can really be a free-for-all, with anyone capable of putting out a halfway decent product (or half-way decent looking product), edging in, with little regard as to what they’re passing off to customers.

This makes it great to have some way to test delta-8 and delta-10 products to separate good from bad (or better from worse). ACS Laboratory and the Potency 12 test inject a little more clarity as to the quality of products on the market, how many fakes are flying around, and where to find the best products. It’s nice to know that if you’re being sold a delta-8 or delta-10 THC product, that its authenticity can now be verified.

The Legality of Delta-10 THC – Where It Stands

The internet is abuzz with talk of the newest THC to hit the market, delta-10, but unlike it’s more well-known THC alternative delta-8, the recent DEA Interim Final Rule and USDA final rule, have done nothing to increase the legality of delta-10.

The family of THC is growing, with newer version delta-8 THC becoming a rather big deal recently. Why? Because unlike delta-9 THC, it produces less psychoactive effect, and a more clear-headed experience. In fact, we’ve got some great delta-8 THC deals for you to try it out yourself.

When it comes to the legality of cannabis, and compounds like delta-8 and delta-10 THC, things can get confusing. While it seems there is much misunderstanding on the differences between the newest members of the THC family to make it to the public – delta-8 THC and delta-10 THC – there is one fundamental difference between the two which effects legality, and puts delta-10 in a different category.

Delta-8 THC does fall into the industrial hemp loophole according to some – though this is technically STILL up for debate, but delta-10 actually does not, and does indeed remain federally illegal. And it’s not unclear legislatively. Let’s take a look at why.

2018 US Farm Bill

First, let’s take a look at the legislation that brought delta-8 THC into the spotlight. Delta-8 THC is a naturally occurring, oxidized version of delta-9 THC, the standard THC of marijuana. What this means is that when delta-9 comes into contact with oxygen, small amounts (and we’re talking extremely small amounts), lose electrons, to form a slightly different, and more stable compound, delta-8 THC.

delta-10 vape

The delta number – 8 or 9 – refers to where the double carbon bond occurs on the chain, with it falling on the 8th atom for delta-8, and the 9th for delta-9. The most important takeaway so far? It occurs naturally on its own, and does not need to be made in a lab.

The 2018 US Farm Bill legalized the production of hemp products so long as the THC content is no more than .3%. As per the law, the definition of hemp is “the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Since delta-8 THC can be sourced from any delta-9 THC, whether it comes from high-THC marijuana, or low-THC hemp, it is legal according to the definition of hemp, landing it squarely in the industrial hemp loophole. Is it naturally occurring the way we use it? No, it’s not. Since the amount naturally produced by oxidation of delta-9 THC is miniscule, it does have to be produced through a processing method that involves human help. For this reason, some people stand on the side that delta-8 is synthetic, and that changes things a bit.

What is delta-10, and how is it different?

Though the name ‘delta-10’ is only becoming familiar to the public now, it was first discovered back in 1980, and this was done accidentally. It was found in California as a result of something completely unrelated – forest fires. The company Fusion Farms was in the business of making concentrates at the time, and its outdoor flower supply got contaminated by the flame retardant chemicals that were being used to avoid or subdue these fires. This all happened unbeknownst to the company workers who continued the process of producing the extracts.

What they found during this process, were unfamiliar crystals. The end result of the study of these new crystals, was that they were a new form of THC that had been synthesized, this time with the double bond on the 10th carbon atom.

What does this mean about delta-10? It means it’s chemically a derivative of delta-9 THC, but unlike both delta-9 and delta-8 THCs, it cannot occur on its own making it a purely synthetic cannabinoid. In this case, the synthetization process occurred by way of exposure to a catalyst, which was flame retardant chemicals.

As far as the effects of delta-10, it’s hard to say. Plenty of research has been done into delta-9, and there is a growing body of research being done on delta-8. But delta-10 hasn’t reached that point, so little can be said about exactly what to expect. The general thought is that it will hold the same basic qualities of its counterparts delta-8 and delta-9 – which themselves are very similar, but specifics really cannot be stated.

In terms of personal experiences, those are, indeed, difficult to find as well. In order to experience a product, it has to be available. In a new market, it can take time for word to spread, and for products to go out, be used, and for reviews and testimonies to make it to the internet. Right now, with the exception of scattered, not-very-specific mentions, there isn’t much to go on yet.

As time goes on, there will surely be a bigger supply of online usage information, but right now, products have not been circulating widely enough for this to happen. There is an issue that could effect how quickly it can be circulated though, as there is a legality issue with delta-10 THC, though this is not necessarily a deal-breaker in the end.

Legalities – how delta-10 and delta-8 are different

One of the most important things to understand about the 2018 Farm Bill, is that it doesn’t cover synthetics. It just doesn’t. It’s super fantastic that it says that products can be made from hemp derivatives so long as the THC content is not more than .3%, but this only accounts for natural derivatives. According to the DEA Interim Final Rule, the definition of hemp is not changed, and the recently released USDA Final Rule, does nothing further to change definitions either. As such, right now legally,

“The [2018 Farm Bill] does not impact the control status of synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols (for Controlled Substance Code Number 7370) because the statutory definition of “hemp” is limited to materials that are derived from the plant Cannabis sativa L. For synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols, the concentration of D9 -THC is not a determining factor in whether the material is a controlled substance. All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances.”

The actual definitions of ‘tetrahydrocannabinols’, are materials “…naturally contained in a plant of the genus Cannabis (cannabis plant), as well as synthetic equivalents of the substances contained in the cannabis plant, or in the resinous extractives of such plant, and/or synthetic substances, derivatives, and their isomers with similar chemical structure and pharmacological activity to those substances contained in the plant…”

legality delta-10

This definition puts synthetics and non-synthetics together. And if you’ll remember, the definition of hemp, is for compounds directly sourced from the hemp plant. As the definition of hemp does not cover synthetics, all cannabis synthetics remain illegal federally as per the previously stated law.

As an only synthetically-derived cannabinoid, this squarely answers the question of the legality of delta-10 THC, making it strictly federally illegal. Why does this not entirely apply to delta-8 THC? Because delta-8 THC is naturally occurring. The current USDA ruling did nothing to clarify the legal loophole of delta-8, with some still saying because its naturally occurring, it’s legal, and others pointing to the processing necessary to create it, making it synthetic.

Right now, delta-8 remains gray area, but unless the definition of hemp changes to include synthetics, the legality of delta-10 is not as gray, and the compound doesn’t make it into the industrial hemp loophole.

The Legality Of Delta-10 THC – Conclusion

There you have it… delta-8 is still gray area depending on whether it gets defined as a synthetic or not. On the other hand, the legality of Delta-10, as a purely synthetic cannabinoid, is different, and the compound remains illegal on a federal level. Luckily, with a growing number of legalized locations throughout the US and the rest of the world, there are still plenty of markets that can legally sell this option. And since laws are still forming and kinks in this industry have a long way to being worked out (as evidenced by the new USDA ruling which does nothing to clarify delta-8 further), there should be plenty of ways to obtain this newer version of THC, for anyone who wants it.

Before It Even Took Off, Some States Already Want to Ban Delta 10 THC

Whenever a new cannabis trend emerges, we tend to get the same reactions every time: excitement from consumers and industry stakeholders, followed by a wave of legislation trying to regulate or prohibit the new product. Typically, by the time a product gets on the radar of the general public, it’s already on its way to becoming illegal.

Why ban the new Delta 10 THC? It happened with many cannabinoids and products already, most recently, Delta 8 THC. Despite the fact that it falls under a legislative loophole that makes it federally legal, technically; many states have completely outlawed its production and sale. And you might be inclined to assume that it’s only the most restrictive states taking these steps, but then you would be completely wrong. For example, some legal states including Colorado and Arizona don’t allow the possession or distribution of any products containing Delta 8 THC.

But we’re not here to talk about D8, today we’re discussing how this same exact dilemma is unfolding in the small but fast-growing Delta 10 THC market – which states are trying to ban this new cannabinoid?

What is Delta 10 THC?

Following in the footsteps of many cannabis trends prior, Delta 10 THC was first noted in California, although in this case, the discovery was purely accidental. It all began when an Adelanto-based company called Fusion Farms bought some outdoor flower to manufacture concentrates. Because of the wildfire-prone climate in California, the biomass they purchased had been sprayed with fire retardant, although Fusion Farms believed the flower they were getting was pure.

Being unaware of the contamination, they continued with the extraction as planned but some unusual crystals began to form after the distillation process. These crystals had a completely different structure than previously observed cannabinoid crystals. After conducting some laboratory tests, it was determined that these crystals were most similar to CBC (cannabichromene), but still not an exact match. For several months, they continued testing this structure against all the known cannabinoids and no match was found.

Eventually, they found out that it was yet another variation of tetrahydrocannabinol, formed because of plant exposure to those fire retardants – dubbed Delta 10 THC. So basically, D10 is an artificial cannabinoid, formed by converting D9 or other cannabinoids using some type of chemical catalyst. In this case, it was fire retardant, but obviously that’s not something people want in their cannabis products, so companies are looking at various – greener – methods of creating Delta 10 THC.

In chemistry, “Delta” refers to the double bond in a compound’s molecular structure. Delta compounds have more electrons and interact with the body in different ways than single bond cannabinoids do. The variation between the Delta THC analogues comes down to where the double bond is located on their chain of carbon atoms. Delta 8 has this bond on the 8th carbon chain, Delta 9 on the 9th chain, and Delta 10 THC has the double bond on the 10th carbon chain. Although it seems miniscule, it makes a substantial difference.

Is it federally legal?

Although all tetrahydrocannabinols are supposed to be on the FDA’s list of Schedule 1 narcotics, some of them remain permissible on technicalities. In short, if the THC (regardless of which Delta) was extracted from legal hemp, or chemically converted from CBD or another legal cannabinoid, then the THC itself is LEGAL.  

Since everything regarding Delta 10 THC specifically is a bit new, let’s once more take a look at Delta 8 for reference. Last year there was some controversy and confusion about whether Delta 8 would be added to the DEA’s list of controlled substances. Many in the industry believed it would be prohibited under the DEA’s Interim Final Ruling over “synthetically-derived” cannabinoids but, fortunately, this turned out not to be the case.

Although a few changes were made, the final result was this: if the end Delta 8 product is derived from hemp and has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC, then it’s legal. The DEA does include Delta 8 THC on its list of controlled substances which was just updated in August 2020. But since the 2018 Farm Bill expressly exempts “tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp”, this means that any form of THC derived from hemp that falls within the already established limits will remain legal.

So yes, Delta 10 THC is federally legal… however, states can override federal laws if they choose to. It happens all the time with industries like alcohol, tobacco, and gambling. So, while Delta 10 may be federally legal, some states governments are already taking steps to ban the new THC.

What states are working on bans?

The Alabama Senate Judiciary Committee recently approved a measure that would prohibit Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC, along with Delta 9 which is already illegal. The original intent of this bill was to regulate a new synthetic opioid, Tianeptine, by adding it to the state’s controlled substances list. The bill was amended by Republican Senator Arthur Orr who added the sections about THC at the very last minute.

The Alabama Cannabis Industry Association starkly criticized the proposal in a blog post: “It’s premature to outlaw these potentially beneficial treatments for very serious conditions until research has been done. What we do know is that there have been no deaths attributed to delta-8-thc and cannabis is generally safer than even some over-the-counter medications. The Alabama Senate has the opportunity to regulate delta-8-thc and delta-10-thc in The Compassion Act so it is controlled but still accessible to people who will benefit from it in reducing suffering and improve quality of life.”

In North Dakota, not only did the Senate quickly shut down a bill that proposed legalizing cannabis, but a new bill that would outright ban the manufacture, sale and possession of ALL tetrahydrocannabinols (specifically Delta 8, 9, and 10) is quickly gaining traction. The governor has 10 days to sign the bill which would then go into effect immediately. If it passes (and it’s expected to), anyone found buying or selling products containing any type of THC could face criminal charges.

Final thoughts – Delta 10 ban

It’s hard to say what exactly will happen with Delta 10 THC on a national scale. So far, these are the only two states that I’ve heard of that are actively trying to ban Delta 10. It seems like a lot of wasted time and effort, considering anything with Delta 10 THC is difficult to find as it is, and all cannabis products will inevitably become legal in the very near future anyway (or at least we hope).

For now, the best thing you can do is stay up to date on your local news and laws, and make sure to stock up on your favorite products if you start hearing talk of new legislation.

The post Before It Even Took Off, Some States Already Want to Ban Delta 10 THC appeared first on CBD Testers.

Delta 8 / 9 / 10 / 11… How Many THCs Are Out There?

We all know about delta-9 THC, the main psychoactive cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Recently, delta-8 THC started making a strong impression as an alternate form of THC, with slightly different benefits. We even know there’s a delta-10 THC. So, how many THCs are there out there, and how are they similar?

Well, it’s finally happening, the new vape ban will stop retailers from being able to send vape products through the mail in the US. Luckily, you can still pick up products in dispensaries, and you can still order until the ban starts. Just a few days left, so check out these great Delta-8 THC deals before we can’t send them out to you anymore!

Delta-9 and delta-8 THC

The first guy to synthesize THC was chemist Roger Adams. He was the first to identify the compound in the 1940’s, although he was not able to isolate it. This was done in 1964 by Raphael Mechoulam and his team, although Adams was the first to isolate CBD. Mechoulam was able to benefit from Israel’s less restrictive cannabis research laws. He and his team wanted to figure out what it was in Indian hash that was making people act so intoxicated.

The answer, he found, was THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. To be more specific, he isolated the most common form of THC found in cannabis plants, delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC itself does not actually exist heavily in any cannabis plant, but is instead produced from THCA which decarboxylates (generally through sun exposure or heat) to become delta-9 THC. It was learned in the 1940’s that there were many different forms of THC, although how many THCs can be created, was a mystery (and still is).

In the last year or so, another form of THC has been getting more popular, partially due to the 2018 US Farm Bill which legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp for certain purposes. As a form of THC which does not exist in large enough amounts on its own, delta-8 THC requires being sourced from delta-9 THC. It’s formed through an oxidation process, which results in a compound that has shown in testing to have less psychoactive response, to produce less associated anxiety and panic symptoms, to be effective for use with nausea and vomiting due to illness and treatments, and which, due to the oxidation process, is actually more stable over time than delta-9.

Some even say it produces a very clear high, and heightens the senses of users. And since it can be sourced from any delta-9 THC, it can just as easily be sourced from delta-9 coming from industrial hemp, as from high-THC marijuana, creating a legal loophole for production. Even this THC isn’t quite as ‘new’ as current interest would have you believe, though. Delta-8 THC has been known about since it was fully synthesized in 1965 by Raphael Mechoulam.

Mechoulam even published research back in 1995 showing how delta-8 THC eradicated the nausea and vomiting of children receiving cancer treatments. Yet, of course, we didn’t hear much about it. What makes delta-8 THC relevant currently, is that it’s being produced in the very gray area of the 2018 Farm Bill, which has therefore permitted – to a degree – legal sales of THC (or gray-area sales). The two compounds are nearly identical, and have similar properties, it is only the sourcing of delta-8 THC from hemp that creates this legal quandary.

Delta-10

What else have we missed about THC? How many other THCs might exist?We know about delta-9 and delta-8, and that they’ve both been around for awhile. We even recently found out about delta-10 THC. Delta-10 also isn’t new, having been first synthesized back in the 1980’s. In fact, it was discovered accidentally by the contamination of outdoor flowers used to make concentrates, with flame retardant chemicals for dealing with wildfires in California, where the company creating the extracts was located.

The company, Fusion Farms, wasn’t aware that their product had issues and went on with the extraction process, just to find strange crystals forming. It was eventually realized that these strange crystals were another form of THC, this time delta-10. Delta-10 THC is an artificial cannabinoid that was formed when delta-9 THC was converted after being exposed to a catalyst, in this case the flame retardant material, though there could be less toxic catalysts out there.

As far as what delta-10 does, it’s hard to say. It came into existence through an accident, and has not been through even the compulsory scientific research that delta-9 THC and delta-8 THC have. It likely has similar mechanisms of action in the brain, attaching to CB1 and/or CB2 receptors, but nothing specific about the molecule can be said, other than that the double bond (the delta) exists on the 10th carbon atom of the chain, rather than the 9th like delta-9, or the 8th, like delta-8. That is, in fact, what defines a type of THC, where the double carbon atom is located.

Delta-3, delta-4, delta-6, delta-7

Now we know that the THC molecule can exist in different forms, depending on where the carbon double bond is located, which is what brings up the whole question of how many THCs are out there. Could that double bond be located on the 3rd, 4th, or even 7th carbon atom? Seems like it.

Delta-3 THC, delta-4 THC, and delta-7 THC were all identified during the 1940’s when THC was first starting to be synthesized in laboratories by researchers like Adams. These are entirely synthetic, and developed as a way to establish a synthetic form of a plant product (likely to get around patent issues). Though research has been done into these compounds, it has remained limited. It is generally thought that these synthetic isomers are less potent than delta-9 or delta-8 THC, but this may not be true all the time.

The more we go into the question of how many THCs currently exist, or can be created, the more we find that there are quite a few, with plenty we don’t know about yet or haven’t worked with. And some, just like the original finding of THC, that just don’t get the attention they deserve.

Take this, for example, a study from 1980 highlighting how delta-6 THC, and some other cannabis compounds, effect mice brains. The study found that several cannabinoids or isomers are correlated with an up-to-60 minute cataleptic effect in mice. Catalepsy is a disorder in which the body doesn’t respond to external stimuli, with overall muscular rigidity, and an inability to move.

While delta-6 THC didn’t create the highest correlation with cataleptic symptoms, it did show to be one of the most potent cannabinoids in the brain. The study authors concluded that psychoactive features of cannabinoids and their metabolites, are more likely related to structural features than pharmacokinetic ones. This was back in 1980, and yet a look at the medical cannabis landscape of the last few decades shows a massive deficit in follow-up research.

11-hydroxy-THC

We know that THC molecules vary between each other slightly, but what about once THC is metabolized by the body? The reason that THC edibles are so strong is the conversion of THC into 11-hydroxy-THC. When delta-9 THC (C21H30O2) is ingested, it gets processed into 11-hydroxy-THC (C21H30O3) by way of the liver and digestive tract. The difference is explained well by the publication Leafly’s primary researcher, Nick Jikomes:

“The real difference between edibles and smoking or vaping is that with edibles, a much larger fraction of Delta-9-THC makes it to the liver first. There it gets converted to 11-hydroxy-THC.” He continues, “So in other words, if you smoke or vape, the ratio of 11-hydroxy-THC to Delta-9-THC is quite low, and if you take an edible it’s much higher.” This helps explain why edibles can cause very intense highs, and why the high lasts so much longer. 11-hydroxy-THC is not naturally occurring, and requires the body to break down THC to produce it. Perhaps future research will find a way to synthesize it, without consumption.

This isn’t a standard version of THC, but it does go to show the other possibilities out there when asking the question of how many THCs there are.

cannabis medicine - using the many THCs for our own benefit

So, how many THCs are there?

With the ability to synthesize cannabinoids, the ability to create new versions of THC has been available for some time. Research into THC back in the 40’s identified much of this information, but little has been done to effectively use it. By now, years of intense research into THC should have been done, but decades after these forms of THC were found, we’re still asking the question of how many THCs are even out there. The reason things are this way is highly debatable, with some people holding true to beliefs about inherent drug dangers and black markets, a holdover from previous smear campaigns, no doubt.

Others might argue that the pharmaceutical industry couldn’t compete with a plant, and found it easier to suppress information about it, essentially ending research, or bringing it down to a trickle throughout the world, until it could be monetized properly. The latter argument makes way more sense considering the new pharma-cannabis industry, which seems to have no problem with people using the drug and sees no reason for danger, so long as the money goes into pharmaceutical pockets. Of course, that’s just my interpretation.

It could be that hundreds of versions of THC can be created, or maybe there are strictly 15. In a research field so wide open, with so much to investigate, it’s impossible to say just how many THCs exist. It’s not even possible to say if delta-9 is the strongest form, or what other kinds of psychoactive and medical effects could be hidden therein. One of the more interesting things to understand about THC, is just how much more there is to learn about THC.

Conclusion

The same issue that comes up with delta-8 THC is also relevant with other forms of THC that are sourced from delta-9. They can come from high-THC marijuana, or low-THC hemp, which means these compounds are falling into a legal gray area in many places like the US and the UK. They are being ruled illegal by drug scheduling legislation that names THC and all its derivatives as narcotics, but at the same time, they are starting to be sourced from places that are not considered illegal, making it questionable whether products made from them would therefore be legal or not.

Either way, the world of THC is opening up more and more, and proving to be a surprising and interesting place. In the next few years we might even get a better answer to the question of how many THCs are out there in the world.

How many isomers of THC are in cannabis and beyond?

A century ago, cannabis was respected but not well understood in the scientific literature. The intoxicating ingredient, THC, was officially isolated in 1964. (1) After 56 years, an isomer of THC, Delta-10-THC, was identified in cannabis extract for the first time. But, how many different variations and isomers of THC are truly in cannabis, and […]

The Bizarre History and Promising Future of Delta 10 THC

Yes, you read that right. We have another form of THC to explore – meet Delta 10 THC, a new cannabinoid with a short but interesting history.

Delta 10 THC is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in cannabis. But unlike some of the bigger names like CBD, Delta 9 THC, CBG, CBN and Delta-8 THC, Delta 10 is not a naturally occurring plant compound, although it does start off that way.

This molecular sibling does have many commonalities with Delta 9 and Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinols, but there are some key differences as well. Let’s explore what we know about Delta 10 THC so far, and why it’s important for you as a consumer and for the industry as a whole.

The Bizarre Formation of Delta 10 THC

As with many of the nation’s cannabis trends, Delta 10 THC started in California too. However, this time, it was purely accidental. A company called Fusion Farms out of Adelanto, CA, bought some outdoor flower to manufacture concentrates. As many already know, California is subject to almost annual, very large wildfires; and unbeknownst to Fusion Farms, the biomass they purchased was contaminated with fire retardant.

Since they were unaware of the contamination, they continued with the extraction as planned but after the distillation process, unusual crystals began to form. These crystals had a completely different structure than previously observed cannabinoid crystals. After conducting some laboratory tests, it was determined that these crystals were most similar to CBC (cannabichromene), but still not an exact match. They continued testing this structure against all the known cannabinoids and no match was found. This went on for several months.

Eventually, they discovered that it was yet another variation of tetrahydrocannabinol, formed because of plant exposure to those fire retardants – Delta 10 THC. So basically, D10 is an artificial cannabinoid, formed by converting D9 or other cannabinoids using some type of catalyst. In this case, it was fire retardant, but companies are looking at various greener methods to created Delta 10 THC, like certain food-grade additives.

In chemistry, “Delta” refers to the double bond in a compound’s molecular structure. Delta compounds have more electrons and will interact with the body in a different way than single bond cannabinoids. The difference between the Delta THC analogues comes down to where the double bond is located on their chain of carbon atoms. Delta 8 has this bond on the 8th carbon chain, Delta 9 on the 9th chain, and Delta 10 THC has the double bond on the 10th carbon chain. It seems like a small difference, but from a chemical standpoint, it’s substantial.

How Does Delta 10 THC Effect the Body?

Honestly, it’s hard to say. Because this cannabinoid is so new, there is really no concrete information on how it effects the body and what medical benefits it could provide. I think it’s safe to assume that the effects will be similar to other tetrahydrocannabinols, and that it will likely interact with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors in a similar way.

However, that’s just educated speculation at this point. All that we can say for sure is that Delta 10 THC is less psychoactive than Delta 9 and even Delta 8, though not by much for the latter. It’s likely that you will need higher concentrations of Delta 10 to achieve the same results you would get from the other THCs.

Once the laws open up more, scientists will be able to legally study cannabis and will have more funding and equipment to do so. Right now, most of the studies are coming out of Israel, but since this compound was only recently created in the United States, it has not yet been researched out there.

Notes From an Organic Chemist

A few important notes from Josh Jones, Ph.D., organic chemist and founder of Jonesing Labs LLC., who consults with Fusion Farms. “The first thing I wanted to see was nuclear magnetic resonance [NMR] for the unknown crystal,” he began. NMR spectroscopy is an analytical method used to study different chemical structure.

“If you have a purified substance, NMR allows you to ‘see’ the structure of a molecule. It’s a wonderful tool,” says Josh. “Prior to this NMR data, a lot of people had been seeing this mystery compound show up as a minor component on their distillate COAs, but they thought it was CBC,” Josh said.

“Without having a certified reference standard for Δ10-THC, typical HPLC analysis can misidentify Δ10-THC as CBC or CBL (cannabicyclol.) We looked a bit deeper at the HPLC data, especially using 2D HPLC scans, which show absorbance at multiple UV wavelengths.”

“We then saw a difference between the isolated Δ10-THC and standards for CBC and CBL. In combination, the 2D HPLC and NMR data make a strong case for identifying Δ10-THC as the unknown crystals formed in Fusion Farms’ distillate. Then, as luck would have it, a certified Δ10-THC reference standard was released, which agreed with the GC and mass spectrometry data we collected.”

It was Josh’s lab that found an accurate method for identifying Delta 10 THC, compared standard methods that would mistake this compound for CBC or CBL.

Can Delta 10 THC Get You High?

Short answer, yes. All THC products have psychoactive properties, and thus, can get you high. Delta 9 is going to be the strongest, which is great for some but can cause paranoia and anxiety in others. Delta 8 has similar effects to Delta 9 but is a bit less potent, less intense, and is said to be a great sleep aid.

Delta 10 is similar to Delta 8 when it comes to levels of potency (although some analysis indicates that is a bit less powerful), but where D8 is great for sleep, D10 will make you feel more alert, creative, and energetic.

Since this is a very new cannabinoid and there aren’t many delta 10 products available for the average consumer, you’re not going to find a lot of firsthand reports of how Delta 10 made them feel just yet. We can expect that to change over the coming weeks, as many industry professionals have noticed there is interest in Delta 10 and are working on making products as we speak.

It’s also important to mention that Delta 10 THC will show up on a urinalysis drug test and will probably not be differentiated from Delta 9. So if there is a reason you can’t consume Delta 9 THC, you should also stay away from Delta 8 and Delta 10.

What Does the Future Hold?

“We’ve been selling thousands of Delta-8 products a day,” said David Reckles from Private Label Hemp Lab. “And based on the feedback from Delta-10 so far, we’re ramping production to prepare for a similarly soaring demand. We think Delta-8 and Delta-10 have the power to turn the CBD market on its head.”

“Many People don’t just want CBD for its natural wellness benefits. They want something to take the edge off. They want to feel noticeably more relaxed and they don’t want to have to get a medical cannabis card to do it. For these self-helpers, CBD alone isn’t always enough. Now that Delta-8 and Delta-10 are available, people are starting to realize these compounds are on a whole other level. Why would people want to go back to the CBD?” David continued.  

The only problem here is that Delta 10 THC might be illegal. Cannabis laws are complicated and according to the DEA, “All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain schedule I controlled substances.” The issue with that statement is the DEA has not defined what constitutes “synthetically derived.” Since Delta 10 is synthetically derived from natural compounds, it definitely falls into a grey area.

That said, numerous companies are already moving forward with Delta 10 THC production using legal and compliant, hemp-derived CBD. “You can create any delta you want–Delta-8, Delta-9, or Delta-10–by chemically altering CBD isolate or CBD crude. If you’re using crude CBD, you’ll generally create the reaction through carbon, and vitamin C derivatives. If you’re using an isolate, you’ll incorporate solvents and acids,” David added.

Importance of Lab Testing Delta 10 THC

Similar to CBD, Delta 9, and other cannabinoids, Delta 10 THC is measured via Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography, but lab employees need to make sure they are keeping up with the latest industry standards to ensure they’re accurately differentiating Delta 10 from CBC and CBL, as mentioned previously.

Delta 10 THC products aren’t like smokable flower or naturally extracted cannabinoids. Delta 10 needs some type of additive to be created, and if these products aren’t made with the proper knowledge, testing, and supervision, companies could be creating bunk products that will make people sick with dangerous toxins like pesticides and residual solvents.

Always look for a Certificate of Analysis (COA) before buying cannabis products online. This will ensure your safety and you can make sure you’re not getting ripped off with products that won’t have the promised effects.

What Type of Delta 10 THC Products are Available?

At this point in time, you won’t find many Delta-10 products on the market. But companies already plan to launch an assortment of Delta-10 items by the end of spring. Different product options will include:

  • Disposable pens
  • Vape cartridges
  • Gummies
  • Tincture / oil 
  • Dabbing syringes
  • Chocolate bars
  • Shatter 
  • Flower and prerolls
