Delta 10 THC Explained - What is it?
Just as Delta 8 THC has established itself as a popular marijuana alternative, there is a new cannabinoid on the market: Delta 10 THC. Delta 10 has been known to bring on a mild high without the drowsiness of other THC cannabinoids, offering more sativa-like psychoactive effects.
Where Does Delta 10 THC Come From?
Delta 10 isn’t a new discovery, but traditional cannabis contains such small concentrations of this form of THC that it was difficult to research, let alone use -- until recently. When a concentrate producer bought cannabis from a crop grown near a wildfire, they found unusual new crystals during processing. Their testing lab identified these mysterious crystals as THC Delta 10. How did this happen? Wind had spread fire retardant chemicals onto the crop, kicking off a chemical reaction that transformed terpenes into this cannabinoid. This led to a line of research that resulted in a process to convert CBD into Delta 10 using food-grade chemical agents making it possible to produce Delta 10 on a larger scale for medicinal and recreational use.
What is the Legal Status of Delta 10 THC?
The 2018 Farm Bill deemed hemp products containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC legal on a Federal level. In practical terms, Delta 10 is legal, unless specifically deemed illegal by State or Local authorities.
In most states, including Wisconsin, Delta 10 is 100% legal at the State level. Depending on how the laws are written, Delta 10 is legal under CBD legislation, or there simply aren’t any laws that apply directly to this form of THC. Wisconsin falls into the latter category, so Delta 10 doesn’t have the same restrictions as Delta 9. Keep in mind, however, that THC - no matter which cannabinoid it is derived from - can and will show up on a drug screen.
