The Differences Between Delta 8, 9, and 10



In parts of the United States and Canada, cannabis is fully legalized. However, in many other parts of the world, it is not. The primary reason cannabis is not legalized in many European countries and other places is that anti-cannabis campaigners claim that the plant is a gateway drug and bad for people’s health. Whether or not there is any truth to these claims, one thing is for sure: just because the cannabis plant is criminalized in some places doesn’t mean that all of its derivatives are.

This post will tell you about some of the most popular derivatives of cannabis – delta 8, 9, and 10.

Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol

The chief psychoactive component of cannabis is a chemical called tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly shortened to just THC. THC is the chemical that’s primarily responsible for the high experienced when cannabis is consumed. Because of this, it is usually illegal to consume and own. However, there are many different types of THC. When most people refer to THC, they are actually referring to delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol. A lot of people are completely unaware of the fact that delta-8 and delta-10 also exist. In some places where delta-9 is illegal, delta-8 and delta-10 are not.


Delta-8 is a minor cannabinoid. It is found in the cannabis plant but is not as abundant as delta-9. Delta-8 THC requires much more work to extract, which is why it’s typically quite expensive. However, one of the main advantages of delta-8 is that it’s legalized in many places where delta-9 isn’t. It is also worth noting that the high it produces is much more subdued than the delta-9 high. People who experience anxiety, depression, and other unwanted symptoms from delta-9 can safely use delta-8 without experiencing these. Delta-8 is usually synthesized from CBD rather than extracted directly from the cannabis plant since it’s much cheaper and easier to do it this way. This means delta-8 is typically derived from hemp rather than the high-THC cannabis plant like delta-9.


Delta-10 is weaker than delta-8, which is why it’s not as popular. However, because it, like delta-8, is extracted from the hemp plant, and because it’s not as strong as delta-8 or delta-9, it is typically legalized even in places with the most draconian laws. For example, it is possible to buy delta-10 in Texas because hemp-derived products are legalized there. Delta-10 does produce a high, and it’s a lot less intense than delta-8 or delta-9. Most people use delta-10 to help to relieve stress and tension rather than to get high.

If you tend to suffer from anxiety when you smoke delta-9 and even delta-8, then delta-10 is an excellent alternative. It has been shown to be very effective in treating anxiety and depression. However, if you are suffering from mental health problems, you should visit your physician before you begin self-medicating with cannabis products.

Which Should You Take?

If you are interested in taking a cannabis derivative, then the first thing that you need to think about is the derivative’s legality where you live. As mentioned, delta-9 is criminalized in many states and countries. However, if it is legalized where you live, that does not mean you should take it. It would be best if you based your decision on what you want to get from taking a cannabis derivative.

If you are just interested in getting high and don’t have any problems with anxiety or paranoia, then delta-9 is probably your best option. If you want a much more subdued high that’s easier for people prone to anxiety to manage, then delta-8 is a better alternative. If you want a substance that will help you deal with feelings of stress and tension but that isn’t going to get you very high, then delta-10 is a good option.

You need to make sure that whatever derivative you take is legal where you live; otherwise, you can get into a lot of trouble. You can still go to prison for cannabis possession in some places.

How Should You Take cannabis?


Gummies are a popular way for people to take cannabis derivatives, especially ones that come from the hemp plant. Gummies are not incredibly fast-acting. However, one of the most significant advantages of gummies is that they tend to produce very strong effects due to how the body metabolizes them. You can get a lot higher from a delta-8, 9, or 10 gummies than you can from smoking it or consuming it in any other way. Gummies are also a discreet way to take THC.


When it comes to delta-9, most people’s preferred method of consumption is to smoke it. Smoking any kind of cannabis produces the fastest effects. It should be noted that it is also possible for you to consume delta-8 and delta-10 by smoking, too. You can buy pure hemp flowers and then smoke them. Many people like doing this because it mimics smoking cannabis, but the intense high isn’t produced. You should be aware that if hemp is legalized where you live, but cannabis isn’t, being found in possession of hemp could get you in trouble. Police may be unable to distinguish the difference between hemp and cannabis buds and flowers.


Finally, vaping is a good way of consuming it, too. You can buy pure delta-8, delta-9, and delta-10 vape pods. Vaping is great because it is very fast-acting. Many people vape too, which means consuming any form of cannabis through a vape is very discreet. Nobody is going to know what you are taking unless you tell them. Vaping can be fun, too. When you buy cannabis in vape form, you also enjoy the many delicious flavors in which cannabis vape pods are sold.

If you are interested in taking cannabis derivatives, you must first learn about the most popular types. Before taking a derivative, make sure you find the one that’s right for you (and also legal where you live).
