Delta 8 Vs. Delta 10: What’s the Difference?
Wondering what is the difference between Delta 8 and Delta 10? Delta 10 and Delta 8 THC are both cannabinoids traditionally derived from Hemp products. Delta 8 THC is believed to be slightly stronger in potency than Delta 10 THC, but these things tend to be more complicated than strictly potency. It’s worth understanding the different aspects and qualities that a cannabinoid can have.
What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC has some psychoactive properties, less than that of Delta 9 THC, but more than that of CBD.
What is Delta 10 THC?
Delta 10 THC is slightly less stable than Delta 8 THC, so typically a Delta 10 product will not have a majority of Delta 10. In this case, the remaining cannabinoid profile is typically Delta 8. However, a Delta 8 product can have high purity of delta, on the scale of up to 95% feasibility. High potency does not always mean a better product, as a good full spectrum product tends to be the most effective. This included using ingredients that have a large spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. Purified distillates are typically one dimensional, and lack the entourage effect known to be useful in the hemp product industry.
Does Delta 8 THC Get You High?
Delta 8 THC can have some intoxicating effects to individuals, but not everyone. It is less potent than its cousin Delta 9 THC (regular weed). Delta 8 THC has more effects and is more potent than CBD. Delta 8 THC can get you high because it interacts with the CB1 receptor, which is the same receptor than Delta 9 THC attaches to. The difference is that Delta 9 THC interacts more strongly with the CB1 receptor, while Delta 8 THC does not interact as strong as Delta 9 THC.
Does Delta 10 THC Get You High?
Delta 10 THC can get you high, but it is not as intoxicating as Delta 8 THC. Delta 10 THC is more potent than CBD, as CBD does not get you high at all. The effects of getting high from a cannabinoid are mostly due to the interaction of the cannabinoid with the CB1 receptor.
What is the CB1 Receptor?
The CB1 Receptor is like a lock, and Delta 8 THC is like its key. Not all keys are created the same, and some work more strongly and effectively than other. This difference in effect is referred to as potency. CB1 receptors regulate the areas of the nervous system, brain, and spinal cord. They affect things like mood, pain, and memory. These receptors are also found in smaller quantities in white blood cells, spleen reproductive organs, Gastrointestinal Tract, and the endocrine glands. When a cannabinoid such as Delta 8 THC bind to the CB1 receptor, a cascade of things happen, as the CB1 receptor is activated. Since so many things are happening at once, people can have differing effects of the Delta 8 THC. For example, if one individual is lacking sleep, and certain metabolic pathways are exhausted, the binding of the CB1 receptor may cause that individual to get very tired, as their body tells them they need sleep. On the flip side, if an individual who is well rested, exercises regularly, and each healthy amount of vitamins and minerals, they may not get tired from Delta 8 THC, but may get some energy. The entourage effect is also known to be the main driver of the differentiating effects of Hemp and Marijuana. The CB1 receptor is also known to be the receptor responsible for getting humans high, and the stronger that a cannabinoid binds to the CB1 receptor, the more high an individual will get. For example, 11-hydroxy-thc binds stronger than Delta 9 THC, which binds stronger than Delta 8 THC, which binds stronger than Delta 10 THC, which binds stronger than CBD.
