Delta-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol

Delta-10-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a synthetic isomer of tetrahydrocannabinol, developed in the 1980s. Two enantiomers have been reported in the literature, with the 9-methyl group in either the (R) or (S) conformation; of these the (R) enantiomer appears to be the more active isomer. Δ10-THC has rarely been reported as a trace component of natural cannabis, though is thought to be a degradation product similar to cannabinol rather than being produced by the plant directly, however it is found more commonly as an impurity in synthetic delta-8-THC produced from cannabidiol, and can also be synthesised directly from delta-9-THC.
