Delta 8 vs Delta 10

If you’ve heard that there’s several different kinds of THC, you might be wondering about two newly popular ones: Delta 8 vs Delta 10 THC. If you’re looking to consume some delicious THC products, you should definitely know what’s the difference between Diet Smoke Delta-8 THC gummies and gummies that contain delta-10 THC, and which is the best choice for me?

  • They both contain cannabinoids that occur naturally in hemp plants.
  • They’re both edibles.
  • Diet Smoke’s Delta-8 THC gummies have enough flavor and produce the right balance of effects that keep consumers coming back for more.

Most consumers report that the main difference between delta-8 vs delta-10 is an indica vs sativa sensation. So where a delta-8 gummy is more likely to feel relaxing, a delta-10 gummy might have more head effects—even though technically it produces a weaker high.

Find out why these Delta-8 THC gummies and Delta-10 THC gummies are the best hemp products on the market, period.

Delta 8 vs Delta 10

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) exists naturally in the human body. This biological signaling system consists mostly of endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes. The ECS regulates many functions, including pain, mood, immune responses, memory, appetite, reproduction, and sleep.

Cannabinoid receptors are both found throughout the body. CB1 receptors are most numerous in the central nervous system (CNS) and brain, and tetrahydrocannabinol or THC interacts with these to produce the classic cannabis plant high. CB2 receptors are more abundant throughout the peripheral nervous system in places like the immune system, outside the CNS.

Plant cannabinoids produce medicinal and psychoactive effects in the body mostly because they interact with the endocannabinoid system. For example, THC activates the CB1 receptor within the brain, producing a “high.”

Most people like Delta-8 THC not just because of the legality advantage or because it’s potent, but because it is mild and predictable. Add in the delicious flavor you look forward to, and the result is something that people genuinely want to use. We take time with our flavors because they’re important.

Why try Diet Smoke Delta-8 THC gummies vs a Delta-10 product?

delta 8 vs delta 10 thc gummies

First-time user? Everyone has their own reasons for wanting to buy Delta-8 THC, from recreation to hoping for pain relief to curiosity. When you’re comparing these legal cannabinoids, it may seem confusing.

For most users, delta-8 THC offers a mild, soothing source of cannabis-like effects. You especially get those indica-like body effects from delta-8 THC.

Some of the side effects of cannabis that many users like least—such as racing thoughts or anxiety—are more associated with sativa strains and more energizing, uplifting head effects.

Delta-10 THC delivers a much weaker high than classic delta-9 THC, so it does avoid some of these problems while still offering some uplifting creativity. However, it’s also a more fleeting, less relaxing experience.

Delta-8 THC is an exciting form of THC and a great way to avoid this issue altogether.

Be careful! These have a candy flavor and a medicinal potency. Don’t eat the whole container! Each gummy contains a potent 10 mg dose of pure Delta-8 THC. Just one delivers a soothing, relaxed state of mind, and we recommend it. You’ll also get a nice body buzz, especially compared to delta-9 THC or delta-10 THC.

Rather microdose? Cut a gummy in half, or even smaller. Or make an evening of it with two gummies or more—but don’t say we didn’t warn you about that pan of brownies.

Quality and safety

We spend a lot of effort and time with organically grown hemp plants extracting premium Delta-8 THC to create these gummies. Check out the certificate of analysis (COA) to see the results of third-party lab testing—and for some confidence in what you’re getting. You’ll never find pesticides, contaminants, residual solvents, or anything but what you’re expecting in our D8 gummies and other high-quality, non-GMO cannabis products—just flavor.

How to use

Serving size: ½ to 1 gummy typically

Take one gummy at a time and wait at least 2 hours before taking another dose. For milder psychoactive effects, cut one gummy in half or into smaller pieces.

Consult a healthcare provider before trying our Delta-8 THC gummies. Do not use if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.

How do we make our Delta-8 THC gummies?

We work with various farms in California, Colorado, and Oregon to source organic hemp plants.

Our team carefully extracts cannabinoids from the plant material using solventless CO2 and refines the final product to exclude all Delta-9 THC, all Delta-10 THC, and and other cannabinoids from cannabidiol (CBD) on down using processes like decarboxylation, winterization, and distillation. The result is the highest quality product—just check out our customer reviews.

Safe for all

Our gummies are safe, whether you’re vegan, gluten-intolerant, or you simply care about animals and the Earth. At Diet Smoke, the Delta-8 THC gummies are not formulated with animal-derived gelatin, but with plant-based pectin, and we don’t use wheat derivatives, either. This results in a unique, chewy consistency that is totally safe.

How to store

Store Delta-8 THC gummies in a cool place out of direct light like you’d store CBD gummies so they will not degrade, in an airtight container.

What is Delta-8 THC used for?

We do not make any health claims about Delta-8 THC, but it is an active cannabinoid. Based on customer reviews, many buyers take these gummies for soothing benefits and a lack of classic cannabis side effects. They are more psychoactive than CBD products, but not the same as classic THC.

What about Delta-10 THC? Its chemical structure vs delta-8 is slightly different obviously, but users report euphoric effects that are more similar to classic high-THC sativa strains—but much, much weaker and more fleeting.

What are the effects of Delta-8 THC gummies?

The effects of Delta-8 THC gummies and other Delta-8 THC edibles are similar to CBD or other THC edibles and develop far more slowly than something like using distillate in a vape cartridge. Most beginners and experienced users alike, however, will experience effects within 45 minutes of taking a D8 gummy, with effects peaking within about 2 hours and lasting between 4–8 hours. Factors such as your metabolism, size, tolerance, age, and cannabinoid receptor sensitivity also affect the response to D8 gummies.

What about Delta-10 THC? These are all processed by the body in basically the same way. Delta 8 and delta 10 are isomers of delta-9 THC, meaning they differ only in where a double bond is located in the chemical structure.

Is it legal to buy Delta-8 THC products?

Based on the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta-8 THC is federally legal and it is legal to buy it in gummies in most US states. The catch is that all hemp products such as CBD oils and tinctures must have low concentrations of any kind of THC in them—less than 3%.

However, it’s illegal to buy Delta-8 THC gummies today in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Iowa, Idaho, Montana, Mississippi, Nevada, Nebraska, Utah, or Vermont. For now, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate Delta-8 THC products.

Can you test positive for Delta-9 THC after using Delta-8 THC? What about Delta-10?

Yes. Most drug tests can’t tell the difference between delta-8 THC and delta-9 THC, or delta-8 vs delta-10, so a false positive test for delta-9 THC is definitely possible after using any of these products. Use them carefully!
