Picture this: it’s a Sunday night, and your only class on Monday got canceled just a few minutes ago. To celebrate, you decide that you want to indulge in a little bit of mellow relaxation, so you go for a little bit of the devil’s lettuce and a movie, ready for a chill night. That all changes quickly when that weed you were so excited to smoke kicks in, and instead of feeling calm and silly, every embarrassing thing you ever did in middle school starts playing like a home movie in your head. You were thinking that even though there’s no class for you the next day, you’d be able to get a little bit of work done and get ahead on your week. Instead, you wake up the next day feeling like a corpse and can’t even get out of bed until 12:45pm. All you wanted was a fun little night with a little bit of reefer, and now you’re stuck with a weed hangover and no desire to do anything productive at all.
Recently, Delta 9 THC alternatives have become increasingly popular as a federally legal option to replace Delta 9 THC, which is what we commonly refer to as weed. In the cannabis plant, there exist many kinds of cannabinoids, and Delta 9 is the primary cannabinoid found in “traditional” marijuana. In addition to lack of federal legality, many people face problems with the use of weed because when looking for a casual, relaxed experience with marijuana, they often have experiences that feel over the top, anxiety inducing, or even make them feel lethargic and exhausted. Delta 8 has become a great alternative for those who are trying to experience a more laid back and less intense high, as it has similar effects to those of Delta 9 THC, but in a less potent way. Similarly, Delta 10 THC is another great option for those who are looking for a more casual relationship with THC – one that will get them to an enjoyable high, without the worries of overdoing it that often come with Delta 9 THC.
What is Delta 10?
Delta 10 THC is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. The four major cannabinoids of a cannabis plant are CBD, Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC, and Cannabinol, but there are lots of other cannabinoids that exist in smaller amounts in the cannabis plant – Delta 10 being one of them. Similar to Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 is much less potent than Delta 9. This means that when consuming it, you will experience the same psychoactive effects that come with traditional weed, but it will not be as strong, leaving the casual weed user with a much more manageable and enjoyable high.
Because Delta 10 is found in smaller amounts in the cannabis plant, it is more difficult to extract, and therefore it is often found in smaller amounts than Delta 9, CBD, or Delta 8.
Delta 10 vs. Delta 8: What’s the Difference?
In short, Delta 8 and Delta 10 are very similar. Both are great for those looking for an experience with weed that isn’t quite as strong as that of Delta 9 THC. There is, however, a slight difference between the two. In weed, there exist different strains, and each one produces a different effect upon consumption. Sativa strains are known for being energy inducing, while indica strains are known for helping with rest and relaxation. Delta 8 THC is more similar to an indica strain, meaning that it’s beneficial for those looking for something that will be calming and mellow. It is also a stronger product than Delta 10, meaning that Delta 10 can be more effective for daytime use. Delta 10 THC is more similar to a sativa strain, so it’s beneficial for people looking for a boost of energy and creativity throughout their day.
What is a Delta 10 Cart?
A Delta 10 Cart is a vape cartridge infused with Delta 10 THC oil. When heated by the battery, the oil becomes a vapor that is then inhaled, and within a few minutes, the effects of the Delta 10 will start to kick in. The effects will typically last around forty-five minutes to an hour, depending on a person’s height, weight, metabolism, and tolerance. When you vape Delta 10 THC through a cart, the vapor is going into your lungs and then being absorbed into your bloodstream and from there into your brain. This results in a much faster acting high than any other form of Delta 10 THC consumption. Because the Delta 10 THC is being absorbed into your bloodstream and moved to your brain very quickly, the amount of time that you will feel the effects is going to be shorter. For this reason, many people use carts to counteract oncoming feelings of sadness, anxiety, or stress. It’s a quick and simple way to consume Delta 10, which allows someone in the beginning of a nervous episode to both calm his mind and body before entering into a full-on anxiety or panic attack. Because Delta 10 is also useful for bringing on creativity and energy, it’s also a nice way to turn something that can be stressful, such as cleaning or doing laundry, into a task that you feel invigorated and excited to do.
Are Delta 10 Carts Legal?
Delta 10 Carts are legal! While traditional THC is not legal across the United States, Delta 10 is, but it’s important to check your state’s laws on the product because Delta 10 is legal at a state level in only forty one of the fifty United States.
Are Delta 10 Carts Safe?
Yes! Delta 10 Carts are safe. It is, however, important to make sure that you look for products that are lab tested and certified. A lab tested Delta 10 Cart will have all chemicals and contaminants removed from the product, meaning that it is completely safe for consumption. It’s also important to remember that, when dealing with a THC product, too much of anything is never a good thing. Taking a few rips here and there won’t hurt you, but draining an entire cart in one sitting is almost guaranteed to result in a less than fun experience. It’s best to find a dosage of a cart that’s right for you and stick with it until you feel like that dosage needs to be adjusted. As with anything that results in a good time: moderation is key.
Dosage of Delta 10 Carts
Unlike edibles, dosing of carts is never exact, and it all depends on how hard you hit the cart, how long, and how many times. Smaller, shorter hits will result in less intense effects, while longer, harder ones will end in more intense effects. So, what’s the best way to figure out how much you need? In the medical marijuana industry, we had a saying when we were getting people started with weed vapes: start low and go slow. Start with a three second inhale and see how you feel because chances are, you’ll be feeling perfect after one or two of those. The best thing about carts is that you will feel the effects come on within five minutes, and from there you can judge if you should take another one or not. It’s a great option to have where you can very easily monitor your effects through time. The only real risk of overdoing it with a Delta 10 cart is if you don’t take a few minutes to see how it’s affecting you. The more that you use a Delta 10 cart, the more of a tolerance you will build, thus, the more you will need. Because of this, it’s always best to stop after you’ve started to feel the effects. This will prevent you from both overdoing it and from building up a high tolerance very quickly, which is something that is both unnecessary and unwanted. Again: if you are looking to have a good time and be relaxed, it’s always important to remember that moderation is the key to success.
Benefits of Delta 10 Carts
Like I said, the main benefit of using a Delta 10 Cart is that you can get all of the desired effects from traditional weed without experiencing the often overly intense and unenjoyable highs from a Delta 9 THC cart. It’s also fantastic for energy and creativity for daytime use due to its similarity to sativa strains of traditional marijuana.
Most people who use weed aren’t sitting in their apartments with a two-foot bong and a perpetually hotboxed bedroom. Even if someone does want to use THC on a daily basis, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s ready to start buying a half ounce every week. With that being said, though, many are still looking for the relief that comes with marijuana – they just don’t want to be sent into an anxious episode that ruins the night and leaves them feeling groggy and lethargic the following day. Luckily, recent years have brought on a wave of new products that are there for the average American who’s just looking for some daily relief without having to worry about going overboard. Delta 10 products are that perfect medium. They carry all of the same effects desired in the use of marijuana, but without the hassle of being too high to function. A combination of Delta 10 during the day and Delta 8 for rest and relaxation is the perfect blend for those who are looking for the average person’s perfect high.
