Delta-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-10-THC)

Cannabinoid

Delta-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol[ˈdɛltə-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol]

Definition:

Delta-10 is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant in trace concentrations. It can get someone high, just as conventional THC (delta-9), although less potent. This makes it comparable to delta-8, a less powerful cannabinoid than conventional THC.

Delta-10 THC presumably interacts with the endocannabinoid system similar to other THC molecules, even though a few studies have been conducted regarding its effect on the body. Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC have different binding affinities for CB1 receptors in the brain and nervous system, resulting in other psychotropic effects. At high dosages, Delta-10 may have a comparable impact on CB1 receptors.
