Spend any amount of time on Nerps Brands’ site, and you’ll see us talk a lot about Delta-10 THC. For most cannabis consumers, hearing talk about different strains of THC is nothing new -- we all know about the commonly used Delta-8 THC and the illegal Delta-9 THC. So you may hear “Delta-10 THC” and shrug it off -- what’s another THC strain, after all?
There is a lot more to Delta-10 THC than meets the eye. We’ve rounded up all you need to know about the newest cannabinoid strain so you can be up to date on what is Delta-10 THC, is Delta-10 THC safe, is Delta-10 THC legal, and more.
If you think cannabis is only Delta-8 THC and CBD oils, think again. This industry has experienced explosive growth over the past few years, entirely thanks to Delta-10 THC. Lucky for you, Nerps Brands is your best place for where to buy Delta-10 THC.
So what exactly is Delta-10 THC?
This is the question we get asked the most. What on earth is Delta-10 THC, and why is it any different from the other consumer THC, Delta-8?
It’s important to know that Delta-10 THC is not vastly different from Delta-8 or even Delta-9. They’re all very closely related cannabinoids. Unlike Delta-8 (and even Delta-9), Delta-10 THC occurs in such small amounts naturally that to distill it would take an impossibly long time. The only way to collect enough Delta-10 THC is through laboratory creation.
But don’t let that turn you off! Just because Delta-10 THC needs a little help to come together doesn’t make it any less safe.
How did scientists discover Delta-10 THC?
Since Delta-10 THC occurs naturally in such small amounts, it’s a totally fair question to ask how it even came on our radars at all.
The origin of Delta-10 THC was, actually, a happy accident. A California cannabis company, Fusion Farms, purchased cannabis that contained miniscule amounts of fire retardant -- totally unknown to them at the time! But as Fusion went through the process of distilling their cannabis in the usual way, they found crystals forming in their distillate. The structure of the crystals was unlike any cannabinoid structure known to date.
Unsurprisingly, that made them sit up and take notice! What were these crystals, and why were they forming?
Testing and investigation led Fusion to the realization that they had discovered an entirely new cannabinoid: Delta-10 THC!
Now, we know what you’re thinking -- does that mean all Delta-10 THC contains fire retardant? Definitely not! The original process of discovery has long been adjusted to allow scientists to extract Delta-10 THC in clean, healthy, safe ways.
What is the difference between Delta-10 THC and other cannabinoids?
The million dollar question: why should you go for Delta-10 THC instead of Delta-8?
Despite it having a higher number in the name, Delta-10 THC is not as strong as Delta-9 THC. That remains the illegal strain. But where Delta-10 THC differs from Delta-8 THC is in how it presents in your body.
Delta-8 THC has the lowest potency. When you consume products containing Delta-8 THC, you will likely experience a sense of overall relaxation. Delta-8 THC will not give you the full body high of Delta-9 THC, which is why Delta-8 THC is used in CBD products and remains legal.
Now, Delta-10 THC is similar to Delta-8 THC in that it has far lower “high” effects than Delta-9 THC, but the other side effects it presents are where it differs from Delta-8.
These differences are best distinguished according to the terms sativa and indica.
Delta-8 THC is an indica. It affects the body with relaxation and calmness.
Delta-10 THC is a sativa. It affects the body in energizing way that reduces anxiety and stress.
This distinction is very important when you are shopping for THC products. You want to make sure you get the right kind of cannabis to fit your needs.
Is Delta-10 THC legal?
Another big question! And the answer is yes.
First of all, it’s important to note that Delta-10 THC CAN be detected in urine tests. Even though it is legal, it may not always be discernible from Delta-9 THC, which is derived from illegal marijuana. So if you know you’ll be required to provide a urine sample, it is best to refrain from consuming Nerps Brands products until after your test.
Second, another very important thing to note is that Delta-10 THC can be illegal -- but not the kind that Nerps Brands uses!
If it is taken from marijuana, Delta-10 THC is illegal. Since marijuana is a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, anything extracted from it is also illegal.
But there’s no need to panic! Nerps Brands extracts Delta-10 THC from hemp, which makes it totally legal.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says that “All synthetically derived tetrahydrocannabinols remain Schedule I controlled substances.” The loophole for hemp is where the DEA doesn’t define what constitutes “synthetically derived.”
Nerps Brands produces safe, legal Delta-10 THC products by getting our cannabinoids from hemp. So don’t worry at all about legality when you buy Nerps Products! We work hard to ensure that every stage of our production, from extraction to product, is above board and passes industry standards.
All right, now how do I use Delta-10 THC?
You’ve gotten all your questions answered, and now, it’s time to use some of our products!
We have a variety of Delta-10 THC products for you to choose from. Nerps Brands provides vape cartridges, lollipops, dab sauces, pre-rolls, and of course, our ever-popular gummies! And the best part of all these products is that they’re all flavored naturally using Cannabis Terpenes.
What are terpenes? These are natural compounds that give fruits and plants their signature tastes and scents. We use cannabis-derived terpenes to shape the flavors of our products and often boost the effectiveness of cannabinoids. This gives us all-natural flavoring that only enhances the effects of your Nerps Brands product.
That’s our main goal at Nerps Brands -- to provide you with a safe, informed, enjoyable Delta-10 THC experience.
