Delta 8 (D8) is a popular cannabis derivative extracted from hemp plants, which is an industrial version of the classical cannabis plant that you would find being used for smoked marijuana. D8, legal at the federal level (if derived from industrial hemp) but contingent on individual state laws, has recently come under scrutiny by state-level governments, with some going so far as banning them. Some of those who have sought to bypass the ban on D8 have turned to other cannabis extracts like Delta 10 (D10 or delta-10-tetrahydrocannabinol).
D10 is hard to come by in a purified form, as much of the current versions are impure and combined with D8 or other extracts from hemp. Due to its relative difficulty to extract and purify, there is some worry that it could come under further scrutiny by the agencies that cracked down on D8 sales. D10 is legal in the vast majority of US states, legal at a federal level, and comes in the same forms as D8, such as gummies or similar.
Some of those who’ve taken D10 claim it’s similar in effect to the cannabis strain referred to as “Sativa”, while those who’ve taken D8 say it’s more similar to a sleep aid or relaxant. Both D8 and D10 aren’t as strong as traditional Delta 9 (D9), which is the form of THC that produces the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
As different forms of CBD/THC supplements become available, you should make sure to understand exactly what these substances are through robust research. D10 can be harmful for individuals. D10 is legal in the vast majority of states, but all who are interested in learning more about this emerging substance should take caution and inform themselves with relevant information.
