Learn facts about the cannabinoids used in our products
There are a variety of Delta-based cannabinoids that we infuse in a selection of our products. Click on one of the options to learn about what it is and the effects it may produce.
Also known as Delta6a10a THC, D6a, and Delta-3 THC, the diversly-named Delta-6 THC has the same molecular formula as Delta-9 THC, but in a different arrangement. This results in a distinct high better for people with a lower tolerance. Its psychoactive properties induce a “high” feeling, but the effects are more akin to a “buzz” than a full-blown experience, meaning cognitive changes are gentler. Delta-6 is reported to produce uplifting and energizing sensations, with a heightened sense of mental clarity and focus.
Delta-8 THC is a minor cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that is structurally similar to Delta-9 THC. It’s derived from the hemp plant and is considered a legal cannabinoid in places where Delta-9 THC is banned. This is thanks to its classification under the 2018 Farm Bill, which granted federal rights to grow hemp for research purposes.
As mentioned, Delta-8’s structurally similar to Delta-9; it has a similar high to Delta-9, but at a milder rate and with no harsh comedown. Those high effects include an overly relaxed feeling and calmness blended with an increase in appetite and energy levels.
Delta-9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive component of marijuana and, to a lesser degree, the hemp plant. It’s what many people closely associate with traditional cannabis, producing the traditional recreational “high” cannabis is known for.
Delta-9 induces feelings of euphoria and relaxation, as well as an increased appetite (the term “the munchies” comes from this sensation). It should be noted that while the effects of the cannabinoid only last for a few hours, Delta-9 can be detected in the human body for up to 20 hours, and sometimes even longer than that (dependent on a person’s tolerance and absorption).
Delta-10 THC is a powerful cannabinoid found in the hemp flower. It’s produced by extracting THC from the hemp plant and then isolating Delta-10 THC into a distillate. It’s less psychotropic than standard THC and generally less harmful as well. In comparison to Delta-8, Delta-10 produces milder psychoactive effects, so there’s a lesser comedown. Feelings associated with Delta-10 include alertness, energy, and creativity.
Delta-11 THC is essentially a stronger version of Delta-9 THC; it’s thought to provide a similar yet slightly more intense and potent experience. Some of our vaping products are infused with Delta-11 and due to this, one can experience the benefits through a faster method. By vaping it, the effects of the cannabinoid hit faster in comparison to ingesting an edible. Delta-11 typically maintains the intensity of its psychoactive effects over a longer period of time.
Alongside the aforementioned Delta-based cannabinoids, there are other THC variations we infuse into our products to produce desired effects. Take a look at some of those options.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC-B, is closely related to Delta-9 THC. Its chemical structure is where the difference lies, and this structure is what makes it more binding to the CB1 receptor in our Endocannabinoid System. Note, the CB1 receptor is responsible for the high feeling you get when you consume THC. You can expect to feel similar euphoric sensations as if you consumed Delta-9, but with THC-B, it’s less turbulent and with less mental cloudiness.
The potency of THC is noticeable on a molecular level; the longer a carbon sidechain on a cannabinoid, the longer and more drawn out its psychoactive effects will be felt. Tetrahdricannabihexol, or THC-H, possesses a 6-carbon sidechain when compared to regular THC’s 5-carbon chain. THC-H’s relaxing effects are said to be 10 times more potent than regular THC.
THCP is a highly potent cannabinoid derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), also known as the “mother cannabinoid.” CBGA can be converted into other cannabinoids, such as THCA and CBDA, through enzyme activity. Heating THCA and CBDA can transform them into THCP and CBDP, respectively. THCP is significantly stronger than THC, with a potency that is 33 times greater. It has a significant impact on the body when consumed.
THC-X is actually a proprietary blend of popular cannabinoids that have been mixed together. It is hemp compliant and legal wherever Hemp is legal. One must take care when consuming, as the blend may appear in a drug test.
Here are some of the other cannabinoids we infuse into our products. We take care in the selection so you’re satisfied with the product.
11-hydroxy-THC, or HXY-11 THC, is a highly potent THC metabolite typically produced when the body metabolizes Delta-9 THC. Studies show that HXY-11 is much more psychoactive than Delta-9 THC, with a potency rate that’s 7 times its predecessor. The effects of HXY-11 are felt more pronounced when it’s consumed through an edible rather than inhaled through a vape.
PHC is also known as Hydrox4phc and is very similar to Delta-11 THC in the way the body produces this cannabinoid. Once metabolized, it creates a psychoactive experience that can be 33 times more potent than actual THC.
