How Does Delta-8 Compare to Delta-10 THC?

Whether you’ve been enjoying our potent, flavorful Delta-8 vape cartridges for months or have just heard of Delta-8 THC, you may have also heard of a new type of THC called Delta-10. For context, Delta-9 is the cannabinoid most people are familiar with, and it produces a fairly strong intoxicating effect.

Delta-8, on the other hand, is a slightly lesser-known cannabinoid that provides a clearer, less overwhelming high than Delta-9, allowing you to maximize your creativity, relaxation, and overall wellness. Our collection of Delta-8 THC cartridges includes familiar favorites such as Piña Express, Berry Slush, and Boo Berry, all of which will leave you feeling relaxed without gluing you to the couch.

Making Sense of Similar Compounds

Delta-8 still has a lot in common with Delta-9 THC — both may stimulate the munchies, reduce nausea, and soothe discomfort while enhancing relaxation and creativity. In fact, many users report that Delta-8 THC even has the potential to ease worried minds and discomfort, all without the negative side effects that are commonly associated with Delta-9.

Delta-10 THC, on the other hand, is an even newer compound that appears to have similar effects to Delta-9 with reduced psychoactivity. Chemically, this newcomer is very similar to Delta-8, differing only in the placement of one of its chemical bonds. While both compounds’ molecular chains include double bonds, Delta-8’s double bond is on its 8th carbon chain, whereas Delta-10’s double bond is on its 10th carbon chain.

Delta-9’s double bond, as is clear from its name, is on the 9th carbon chain. All three are derived from the cannabis plant, which has two major subspecies: hemp and marijuana. Hemp is legal in the US if it contains less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, and all of the Delta-8 THC you’ll find on our site is derived from legal hemp that is grown and cultivated in the USA, and lab-tested for purity.

What’s the Difference Between Delta-8 and Delta-10’s Effects?

Unlike Delta-8 THC, Delta-10’s effects are mostly limited to a head high without much physical relaxation. While further research still needs to be conducted, users have reported that it produces an uplifting high, promoting creativity and a sense of euphoria. Its effects are reportedly less consistent person-to-person and shorter-lasting than both Delta-8 and Delta-9.

One of the key differences between Delta-8 and Delta-10 THC is Delta-8’s demonstrated history of effectiveness at providing an elevated mental state and relaxing physical effect. All of our Delta-8 THC products are lab-tested and quality-assured for purity, potency, and more.

Appearance in the Market

One major difference between Delta-8 and Delta-10 is that the Delta-8 THC market has been growing for several years now, whereas Delta-10 THC is still relatively new. For Eighty Six, this is reflected in our brand’s history. Founded by veterans of the vape industry with a vision for the ultimate cartridge, today our shop includes unique flavors of vape cartridges that range from indica-esque body highs to sativa-like cerebral stimulators. Constructed from high-quality materials and filled with the purest Delta-8 THC concentrate, our cartridges are built to last and resist leaks.

Similarly, our gummies come in a variety of irresistible palate-pleasers. Are you a fan of citrus fruits? The bold grapefruit splash of our Citrus Blast gummies is sure to please you. You can also opt for Orange Band, which is a fantastic pick-me-up in the morning. For enthusiasts with a milder palate, we have Midnight Melon. If you’re daring, then you can’t go wrong with the crisp, tart green apple punch of our Apple Jade edibles.

Each bag contains 10 gummies and a solid 300 milligrams of Delta-8 THC, meaning each gummy packs just enough of a punch to keep you relaxed while still boosting your creativity. Whether they’re all for you or a snack for your next get-together, grab a bag today to see for yourself just how well these gummies work!

Finding the Right Dose

Many people who have experimented with Delta-9 THC have stories about dosing gone wrong — a hit off a joint that knocked them off their feet or an unassuming cookie that led to a 24-hour nap. When it comes to new cannabinoids, dosing can easily make the difference between an enjoyable experience and a less than ideal time.

Another difference between Delta-8 and Delta-10 is that dosing for Delta-10 is not as well understood and less precise than dosing for Delta-8, given the lack of research into the relatively new compound. When it comes to Delta-10 THC, you simply can’t guarantee exactly what effects it might have on any particular person.

One major benefit of our Eighty Six Delta-8 THC products is precise dosing, which allows you to achieve exactly the level of elevation you’re looking for. Thanks to our milligram dosing clearly labeled on every product, you’ll always get exactly the effect you’re looking for — no more, no less.
