Delta 10 THC hasn’t been around for all that long, but that hasn’t stopped hemp enthusiasts from experimenting with different delta 10-infused products to explore the effects of this excitingly new cannabinoid. Delta 10 THC is a mild psychoactive that can truly uplift the mind & body, but does that mean that it is, in fact, safe to consume in the short and long term?
Is Delta 10 THC Harmful to the Body?
Good news, delta 10 THC has not been associated with any adverse reaction. It’s a naturally occurring cannabinoid in hemp, and although it’s a very new discovery, a lot of people have taken it by now, and if there was a major adverse reaction risk, we are sure we would have heard about it by now. Also, delta 10 is so structurally similar to more well-known cannabinoids that we’re pretty certain it’s no riskier than any other that’s on the market, such as CBD, delta 8 THC, or delta 9 THC.
Also, keep in mind that to date, there has yet to be a fatal overdose reported as a direct result of taking any cannabinoid. What this means is that your overall risk of serious harm when taking delta 10 THC is exceptionally low.
The one thing that you do need to be aware of is that delta 10 THC may interact with certain medications (prescription or non-prescription). Delta 10 THC may suppress levels of CYP3A4, and this enzyme is required to break down a lot of commonly used drugs. What could happen is that a drug fails to metabolize, and instead accumulates to dangerous levels in the bloodstream. If you are on any medications, please speak with your doctor before you take delta 10.
Side Effects of Taking Delta 10 THC?
Delta 10 THC is not known to cause major side effects. But, some people may experience certain mild side effects, which are more likely to happen if a larger-than-normal dosage amount is taken, or if the person is a beginner who has a low tolerance to the compound’s psychoactive properties.
These side effects include:
- Dry mouth
- Dry eyes
- Reduced blood pressure/increased heartrate
- Cognitive impairment
Overall, the side effects above tend to remain mild, and aren’t a real cause for concern. They should not last beyond the duration of the high itself. If they do, or if they become severe, then you can consider seeking medical attention.
Does Delta 10 THC Cause Impairment That Can Be Dangerous?
Delta 10 THC is an intoxicating substance, and certain activities are dangerous when performed while intoxicated. The best example is driving. The impairment that comes with intoxication means that driving after taking delta 10 can be dangerous to both you and others. This is the case for any type of task that requires absolute concentration and maximum motor skills, and also comes with some risk. Please be responsible when using delta-10 products, and also wait until the effects have fully worn off before engaging in these kinds of tasks.
Is Delta 10 THC Safe for Children or Pets?
Delta 10 THC is a cannabinoid that adults can generally tolerate with no issues. But, this is not the same case for pets or children. Our bodies have developed nervous systems that know what to do with the cannabinoid’s psychoactive properties. Children and pets have underdeveloped nervous systems, which means that these same psychoactive properties can be extremely dangerous, potentially causing neurotoxicity and other serious issues. Basically, under NO circumstances should delta 10 be administered to anyone other than an adult.
How To Have a Safe Delta-10 Product
Delta 10 THC products itself are not known to cause harm to the body. But, there is always a chance that you’re going to run into a product that is made with unsafe ingredients other than the delta 10 itself. To avoid ending up with a delta-10 product that could ultimately cause harm, you just need to follow these easy tips below.
Tip #1: Buy Only from Trusted Companies/Manufacturers/Distributors
First thing to do is ensure that you only buy from trusted names in the hemp industry. A company/manufacturer/distributor that has established a great reputation is unlikely to start throwing ingredients that are known to be harmful into their formulas. Hence, will also avoid using those ingredients known to be unsafe to possibly go against the FDA’s requirements along with the 2018 Farm Bill. Also, scope out their reviews before buying, as we’ll be getting into more shortly, since customers who have experienced bad side effects are going to say so in the reviews.
Tip #2: Look at Third-Party Lab Results
All hemp-based products should undergo a strict third-party lab-testing process by a state-licensed laboratory. And, these reports should be made available to customers. This is where you’ll find out whether or not the delta-10 product contains toxins, harmful microbes, contaminants, and so on. You can check out Binoid’s COA’s displayed on their ‘About’ page here.
Tip #3: Read the Ingredients
Always carefully read through the list of ingredients provided by the manufacturer. Steer clear from products that are loaded with synthetic ingredients or artificial fillers that don’t actually offer any value to the quality or properties of the delta 10. This way, you’ll be able to spot concerning ingredients before actually taking the product.
Tip #4: Check Those Real User Reviews
Reading real reviews (reviews that sound real and aren’t duplicated) on a company’s website, in order to gather insight on other users’ experiences with that said delta-9 product(s) that you have your eye on, before making a purchase is key. Binoid CBD has over a thousand real reviews displayed on the website. That gives Binoid a higher trust factor than other brands in our industry that’ve potentially created a reputation for scamming customers.
Bottom Line: Taking Delta 10 THC is Generally Safe
The good news is that there’s no reason to worry that taking delta 10 THC puts you at risk for danger. When a delta 10 product is made with high quality and safety standards, you’re generally in for a completely harmless and thoroughly enjoyable high. That’s why it’s so important to only buy your delta-10 products from a reputable manufacturer like Binoid, who utilizes clean ingredients and hemp extracts that have undergone strict third-party testing. You can always be absolutely certain, too, that you’re purchasing the safest delta 10 formulas that exist on today’s hemp market.
