What is Delta-10?

Delta-9 THC is the most commonly sold and used THC compound, and Delta-8 THC is a less potent sister compound of Delta-9. Because the number ten is in the name, people may think it is higher in potency than Delta-8 or 9.

However, Delta-10 is quite similar to Delta-8 THC in regards to potency. The difference in the makeup of Delta-8 and Delta-10 comes down to the chemicals used to produce each after they are processed from cannabis plants. 

Delta-10 THC is significantly more difficult to produce than Delta-8 because it has to be processed much further for the end result. Because of this, Delta-10 THC is often mixed with Delta-8 counterparts to create a more substantial product than would otherwise be possible.

All THC compounds fall under the category of cannabinoids, meaning they attach to cannabinoid receptors in the brain resulting in psychoactive effects, but how intense and how these effects manifest depends on the THC type and strain. 

In general, consuming THC is associated with feelings of euphoria, either increased energy or relaxation, creativity, stimulated appetite, reduced stress, and reduced physical pain. 

The most notable characteristic of Delta-10 is the energizing effect it tends to have on users; for reference, Delta-10 is comparable to Sativa strains of Delta-9, but of course, less potent.

Delta-10 can be purchased most commonly in vape cartridges and edibles; be sure to only buy your Delta-10 products from legal retailers with transparent lab testing.

Is Delta-10 Legal?

As a result of the 2018 United States Farm Bill deeming any hemp-derived cannabis product containing less than 0.3 percent Delta-9 THC legal, Delta-10 THC is technically legal on a federal level, so you can buy from retailers like Dimo Hemp.

However, the state level is a different story. Some state lawmakers have noticed that Delta-10 products are on the rise and view the legality as a loophole, and have created specific laws banning it as a result. 

Due to state laws, note that shipping Delta-10 THC products into some states may be illegal. Since the legality around cannabis is always changing, we recommend checking your local laws before purchasing Delta-10.

States in which Delta-10 is illegal are:
  • Alaska
  • Arizona 
  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Idaho
  • Iowa
  • Mississippi
  • Montana
  • Rhode Island
  • Utah
