What is Delta-8, Delta-9, and Delta-10?

Tetrahydrocannabinol commonly known as THC is the cannabinoid made famous by getting you “high”. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, Hemp derived products may contain 0.3% THC by volume. If you walk into a shop that carries THC products, it is likely hemp derived unless you are at a medical dispensary.

You will see on the label Delta 8, Delta 9, Delta 10 or a small red triangle with the number. The red triangle is the Greek Letter Delta. The number refers to which rung of the in their molecular chain contains the double bond. Delta 9 is the main THC isomer in cannabis with Delta 8, and Delta 10 occurring in much smaller concentrations. A lot of Delta 8 and 10 commercially available is made by converting CBD into Delta 8 THC through a chemical process altering the molecular chain.  

Delta 9 tends to be the strongest of the three. This means you may need to take more or less at any given time to get the effect you are looking for out of the particular Delta you are taking. When in doubt, start with a smaller amount until you know how it affects you as an individual. If you do happen to take too much, a dose of CBD may possibly help mitigate the effects.  

Delta 8 is said to be more relaxing so it may be a good choice for those looking to rest while Delta 10 tends to be more uplifting and mild. At the end of the day, it is up to you which one you like. Do your own research and begin with small amounts, especially if you are new to cannabis use.

Nukana products as of the time of this writing only contain Delta 9 in levels consistent with the 2018 Farm Bill. We strongly advocate for a more natural and holistic approach to health and wellness with Premium Hemp supplements being a powerful tool in your toolbox.
