Delta 10 THC is extremely unique not only in its effects, but also where it comes from. It was actually discovered by accident with an extremely interesting back story. This is why even many that are hemp or cannabis experts hadn’t heard about Delta 10 THC until recently.
As the story goes, a team of cannabis cultivators purchased an existing cannabis farm in the state of California, where crops were already being cultivated. However, there were raging wildfires that took over this particular part of California in 2020. The previous owner of the farm had treated his crops with a fire retardant as an act of desperation.
At the time of harvest the new owners decided it was time to have their crops lab tested to see what type of crop they had. Up close, they noted unique crystals forming on the buds, and this changed the chemical composition of the plant. There was a new cannabinoid in the plant material as a result, and it had the lab analysts completely stumped. After careful, meticulous analysis, it was determined that what they had discovered was Delta 10 THC, which formed as a result of the exposure to the fire-retardant chemical. This had changed the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a molecular level. What does that mean? Well, this caused the THC to convert into a completely new cannabinoid with its own unique molecular composition.
