What’s the difference between Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10?
Many users of cannabis alive today can easily remember a time when tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive substance) was just THC. The cannabinoid is well-known for having the primary psychoactive properties found in marijuana and, in trace amounts, hemp plants, but that was the end of the story.
More recently, an increase in rigorous scientific experimentation has uncovered some interesting other compounds. It turns out not all THC is created equal. Now, chemists and serious cannabis enthusiasts are talking about various delta varieties of THC and how they could provide more targeted beneficial effects and potential benefits for the human body.
The three best-known THC variants are Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10. People looking for new cannabinoid products often find themselves confused by the differences between these three extracts, but they don’t need to get frustrated or overwhelmed. Instead, read on to find out about the key differences, chemical structures, and other factors between Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10 THC.
Understanding the basics
Before discussing the main difference and varying strength levels and effects of these three popular forms of THC, let’s take a moment to discuss the name changes. To chemists, it’s all pretty straightforward. THC is the base chemical structure. Additional molecules can be added, removed, or rearranged from it to create chemical compounds known as unique isomers, in this case, Delta 8, 9, and 10. Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC are technically legal federally since they have less than .3% Delta 9 THC in their overall weight. Because of this, users outside medical marijuana states are turning to these cannabinoids for possible benefits such as pain relief.
Although they are federally legal, they are not regulated by the FDA. Buying from a reputable source is important, as there are always safety concerns in unregulated markets.
Delta-8 in detail
Now that cannabis users understand how the three isomers are formed, it’s time to look at how they stack up. Most people view the Delta-8 compound as one of the calmer THC isomers. It is usually derived from hemp instead of marijuana, and its effects closely resemble a milder version of those associated with Indica cannabis strains.
Though some people view Delta-8 THC as more like CBD, it does have some of the psychoactive effects of Delta-9 THC, the stronger of the isomers more commonly found in high concentrations in recreational marijuana. The psychoactive effects are less pronounced, and potential benefits differ from Delta 10 THC and Delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 THC contributes to the entourage effect without inducing a full-blown psychoactive experience, allowing users to get the benefits of THC while maintaining a clear-headedness not typically associated with more potent THC products. Delta-8 is also more stable than Delta-9, meaning that it won’t degrade as readily into CBN. It’s also legal in most states, even those that do not have provisions for medical or recreational marijuana.
Delta-9 in detail
The Delta-9 THC isomer is what most people think of as “regular” THC. It creates far more potent psychoactive effects (although not a higher potency, it has the potential to feel like a high-potency product because it’s generally more robust than Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC) and is more often extracted from marijuana than hemp. As a result, Delta-9 THC is only legal in states that have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational use.
The effects of Delta-9 THC are more variable than those of the Delta-8 isomer. They are strongly impacted by the mix of other cannabinoids and terpenes found in the strain that can have a compound effect. For instance, an Indica strain may have more sedative effects due to its terpene content, whereas Sativa strains may have more euphoric effects due to its variety of terpenes. It can be more challenging for first-time users to predict their responses to Delta-9 THC.
Delta-9 THC is also responsible for most of the reported side effects of marijuana use, including anxiety, paranoia, and the infamous munchies. It also creates more substantial cognitive impairments, which can be a problem for those who use cannabis products to support wellness in their daily lives.
Delta-10 in detail
While cannabis manufacturers and consumers have been aware of the delta-8 isomer for several years, delta-10 is a newcomer. It occurs only in minute amounts, so it can’t be extracted as easily as delta-8 or delta-9 variations.
Like Delta-8 THC, the Delta-10 isomer is extracted from hemp, not marijuana. As a result, it’s legal in most states, though it can lead to failed drug tests since most tests can’t differentiate between the different THC isomers. Effects-wise, though, the two isomers are pretty different.
The effects of Delta-10 THC are said to be euphoric, uplifting, and less calming than those of the Delta-8 isomer. For those used to the more “traditional” Delta-9 variation of THC, some of the effects of Delta-10 will feel familiar, if more subtle. It can induce a state of increased creativity, energy, and focus but doesn’t come with the paranoia or spaciness associated with Delta-9 THC.
Are these newly discovered Delta-8 & Delta-10 isomers safe?
Since all three THC isomers are so close in structure, the body responds similarly to them. All three forms of THC are generally tolerated well by most people, especially in small doses. While they are generally considered safe, consumers must purchase extracts only from reputable vendors.
