Delta 6a10a Is Being Sold as Delta-10-THC

Written by Petar Petrov

Delta 6a10a THC also known as Delta-3-THC is another obscure cannabinoid that has garnered some attention. Like Delta-8-THC, it can be synthetically produced by isomerization from other cannabinoids like THC or CBD.

It seems to have similar effects to Delta-10-THC, however, it’s still a fairly unknown cannabinoid. But this lack of knowledge isn’t even the main issue with Delta 6a10a.

Anecdotal reports have surfaced of companies selling Delta 6a10a THC as Delta-10-THC. This can be for one of two reasons.

The first one is an honest mistake. Because their chemical makeup is so similar, isomers can elute at the same time during chromatography, so it may be natural to assume that it’s all the same, better-known cannabinoid.

However, there’s a catch: Delta-10-THC will start to crystallize at 20% concentrations, whereas Delta 6a10a does not. So if a product claims it has over 20% Delta-10-THC, but it’s clearly not in crystallized form, it’s very likely to have at least some Delta 6a10a being passed for is more famous isomer. Or worse – once we’ve established that a company is willing to blatantly mislabel its products, nothing on the label can be trusted.

So, Delta 6a10a is shrouded in all kinds of mysteries. Delta 6a10, or rather the Delta 6a10a market is full of unknowns, which is not a good thing when it comes to a product you plan on inhaling on a regular basis.
