What is Delta 8/Delta 10?

Delta 8 and Delta 10 (D8 and D10) are both cannabinoids that are found in trace amounts in the hemp plant. The most well-known THC cannabinoid is called Delta-9; illegal in most states. Within the hemp plant there are various isomers, such as delta 8 and delta 10. Isomers have an identical chemical formula but are arranged differently, giving it new pharmacological properties.

The compounds have been growing in popularity because of the vast similarities it holds with delta 9: euphoria, happiness, sedation, and much more. With the similarities D8 and D10 have with delta 9, it graciously lacks the occasional anxiety and paranoia some of its consumers inhibit.

Delta 8 has a lower psychoactive potency than delta 9, but higher than that of delta 10. both D8 and D10 have a slightly weaker bind to the CB1 receptors than delta 9, giving consumers mild effects of delta 9 THC. Because of the uneven binding, delta 8 delivers effects of an indica while delta 10 effects are more of a sativa. Many consumers will use delta 8 closer to nighttime routines to calm the body and mind before relaxing for the day.

What is THC-O?

THC-O is a minor cannabinoid found in the hemp plant and is an acetylated version of Delta 8. Combined with Delta 8, THCO has been reported to be as much as 3x more potent than delta 8 and it's effects can be often confused with delta 9. D8 THC-O typically gives a relaxing Indica feeling, with a calming warmth and head buzz.

To be able to extract THCO, CBD is first extracted from raw hemp. Then delta-8 THC is extracted from the CBD. Finally, acetic anhydride is added to the delta-8 THC molecules to make THC-O acetate. Combined with delta-8, you get a cannabinoid that is just as potent as THC in many properties.

THCO is perfect for relaxation and creativity. Like its cannabinoid friend, THC delta 9, THCO offers deep relaxation and a potent euphoria.

What is THC-V?

THCV is alike to THC in both structure and psychoactive properties but gives many different effects. THCV relieves stress, reduce anxiety, and because it is neuroprotective, it is sought to be idea to possibly help Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis. . Sativa strains contain the most THCV producing an energetic, motivated and euphoric feeling. Perfect for daytime use.

THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a compound found in the cannabis and hemp plant that offers a large unique array of effects and medical benefits that puts it apart from other cannabinoids. Cannabis strains high in THCV were found in equatorial Africa, where locals used them as stimulants and to stave off hunger. Unlike THC, THCV is a an appetite suppressant. THC turns on our CB1 receptor. This causes the release of hunger hormones. By contrast, THCV turns off our CB1 receptor, thereby suppressing appetite.

What is HHC?

HHC is a cannabinoid that is naturally found in the seeds and pollen of hemp. HHC is not a THC, so while it may have similar effects - it is non-synthetic. HHC was first created in 1944 by the American chemist Roger Adams, when he added hydrogen molecules to Delta-9 THC. This process, known as hydrogenation, converts THC to hexahydrocannabinol (HHC). HHC, unlike his counter part THCO, may give you a very energetic feeling, but like THCO, its effects are loosely confused with those of Delta 9 THC.

What is THCP?

Another minor cannabinoid foudn in the hemp plant. THCP is structured just like THC delta 9...but with a twist! It's thought to be 33 times more active at cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors than THC, causing an intense and intoxicating euphoric high. Effects are strong euphria and relaxation. THCP may be great for pain releif, mood stabilization and energy.
