Delta 10 vs. Delta 8: Which is Best?
The many leaps and bounds of the cannabis industry, when coupled with the ins and outs of legalization, have brought us exciting discoveries of new THC variations. Delta 10 is one of the newest cannabinoids to hit the market for consumers to enjoy, and it has similarities to its well-loved predecessors Delta 9 (THC) and Delta 8. So which is better, Delta 10 vs Delta 8? And for what purposes? Let’s compare these two THC derivatives, their key differences, when they can each best be used, and products that allow you to explore these options — Delta 10 gummies, Delta 10 carts, Delta 10 flower
Delta 10 vs Delta 8
Due to Delta 10’s novelty and subsequent lack of in-depth studies, the best place to start notating the differences between Delta 10 vs Delta 8 is with the basics: science and empirical evidence! Delta 10-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a hemp-derived cannabinoid with similar psychotropic effects to its counterparts Delta 8 and Delta 9 and has been reported to provide a more creative, energetic and focused high. Delta 10 has been said to provide the same relaxation we all know and love with traditional Delta 9, but with more of an uplifting and energetic edge, similar to Sativa strains.
On the other hand, Delta 8 is another hemp-derived cannabinoid that offers a more relaxing effect, devoid of feelings of paranoia, racing thoughts or anxiety. Many users relate consumption of Delta 8 products similarly to the effects of Indica-dominant strains, as they have been known to feel an increase in appetite, eased physical muscle pain and an overall sense of calm.
Both Delta 8 and Delta 10 are technically separate substances from Delta 9 (THC), and therefore are not subject to the same legal restrictions. Likewise, they are both known to be less potent than Delta 9, and a 2016 study even determined that Delta-8 has anywhere from 50% to 75% less psychotropic strength than Delta-9. This makes them both excellent alternatives for anyone who has experienced some of the more uncomfortable side effects of traditional Delta 9 cannabid products, like getting “too high,” paranoia, anxiety, etc.

At Go Green Botanicals we are currently offering both Delta 10 edible and smokable options, including Delta 10 gummies, Delta 10 carts and Delta 10 flower to explore.
