If you are just getting into the world of cannabis, you might not know that there are actually many different types of THC.
The most commonly known type of THC that we are familiar with is known as Delta 9 THC. However, another type of THC that you should familiarize yourself with is Delta-10. Delta-10 THC is becoming extremely popular in recent years.
That said, you probably don’t know too much about it, and that’s what we’re here to help you with; we’re going to help answer some of your most pressing questions.
For example, how long does a Delta-10 high last? How long does Delta-10 take to kick in? How long does Delta-10 stay in your system? These questions and more are all going to be explored today.
- Delta-10 THC is one of the least potent types of THC found in cannabis.
- This type of THC edible will last for a few months if properly stored.
- To extend the shelf life of a Delta-10 THC edible, store them in a cool, dark, and dry place, away from oxygen and sunlight.
- If ingested in the form of an edible, you could feel the Delta-10 high for up to 8 hours.
What is Delta-10?
Delta-10 THC is one of the most significant cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. However, when it comes to the types of hemp-derived THC that can get you high, this is one of the least potent ones.
Simply put, the effects that it is going to have on your mind and body are very limited. As anecdotal evidence states, there are generally no huge energetic or psychotropic effects that D10 THC has.
As you might have noticed there, we did say that Delta-10 THC is generally hemp-derived. This is because as the federal law in the USA states, any cannabinoids that are hemp-derived and contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, are currently considered legal. This means that Delta-10 THC is technically considered legal at this time.
Some people do note that there is a little bit of euphoria and happiness. Although it is not overly potent, it can still make you feel high if you consume Delta-10 THC in very large quantities. Many people do note that its effects are closer to a Sativa high than an Indica high.
What Are Delta-10 Gummies?
Just like any other cannabis gummies out there, D10 gummies are gummy treats made with Delta-10 THC. People may take them to get a little bit of a high, because they taste good, or because they want to reap the benefits that are associated with the Delta-10 THC.
How Long Do Delta-10 Gummies Last When Stored?
One of the unfortunate things about Delta-10 gummies is that their shelf life is not very long. So, how long does Delta-10 last? Well, if they are properly stored in a cool, dark, and dry place, they should last for a few months, up to six months at the very most.
However, generally speaking, Delta-10 THC gummies will actually start to degrade after just two or three months in storage, even if they are properly stored. This means that if you do buy yourself some Delta-10 THC gummies, you do want to consume them fairly soon because they just don’t stay good for all that long. After about three or four months, that THC is going to start to degrade.
As noted above, Delta-10 THC isn’t that strong to begin with, so if you let it degrade, it will get to the point where it probably just won’t get you high at all anymore, or have any beneficial effects whatsoever. Therefore, seeing as these types of THC gummies have such a short shelf life, you do want to store them properly, which is what we are about to discuss below.
How to Store Delta-10 Gummies So They Last
Let’s quickly talk about some of the best ways to store your D10 gummies so they last for as long as possible.
Use an Airtight Container
You don’t want oxygen coming into contact with your THC gummies. The more time in contact with oxygen and fresh air your Delta-10 THC gummies spend, the faster they are going to degrade. Therefore, keeping them in some sort of airtight container such as a Ziploc bag, a Mason jar, or a Tupperware is highly recommended.
Even better is actually if you can vacuum seal them, to remove any air from the equation. This also has to do with bacteria. Gummies are of course a food substance, which means that they are susceptible to rotting and decaying, which are both caused by bacteria. Bacteria however do need oxygen to survive. So, if you can remove oxygen from the equation, this problem solves itself.
Limit Heat Exposure
THC will also degrade much faster if it is exposed to heat, particularly extreme temperatures. Therefore, you want to do your best to limit heat exposure for your THC gummies.
Generally speaking, this means that you want to keep your THC gummies in a relatively cool place, such as a dark cabinet. Many people do of course also keep their Delta-10 THC gummies in the refrigerator. The less heat your THC gummies are exposed to, the longer they will last.
Heat isn’t only detrimental to THC, but to food substances in general. There is a reason why we refrigerate all of our perishable foods; cold temperatures make organic products like foods last much longer before they start to decay.
Avoid Direct Sunlight
Sunlight, particularly the ultraviolet rays contained in sunlight, is also known for causing THC to degrade, and rather quickly at that.
Therefore, if you want your Delta-10 THC gummies to stay in good shape for as long as possible, avoiding direct sunlight is absolutely necessary. Direct sunlight can cause this kind of THC to degrade within a very short period of time.
So, always keep your THC gummies in the dark, or if they can’t be in the dark, keep them in a container that is blacked out. A simple solution is to take some black marker and cover the outside of a zip lock bag so that no light can get into it.
Keep Cool and Dry
Overall, you just want to keep your THC gummies cool and dry. You don’t want them to get wet, because moisture can cause mold to occur, and it will make the gummies start to decay much faster.
How Long Does a Delta-10 High Last?
Now that we know what Delta-10 THC is and approximately what kind of effects you can feel from it, let’s figure out how long that high is going to last. How long the high lasts will depend on the method of consumption.
For instance, if you vaporize your Delta-10 THC, you should be able to feel the effects immediately, with the high peaking in about an hour. You should notice the high lasting for about four or five hours, with it starting to fade at around 5 hours. If you’d like to try vaping it, check out our Botany Farms Delta-10 THC Pineapple Haze Vape Cartridge.
If you take a tincture made with Delta-10 THC, you should be able to feel it in about 30 minutes to 60 minutes, with the high peaking in around 90 minutes. You will feel this high for about 6 to 7 hours, and it should start to fade at around the seven-hour mark.
Delta-10 gummies may take a bit longer to feel because they first need to break down, so you should feel these about 60 minutes after ingestion, with the high peaking at around the two-hour mark. This high will last around 7 or 8 hours, with the high starting to calm down around the eight-hour mark.

How Long Does Delta-10 Stay in Your System?
Delta-10 THC can stay in your system for up to several months. Now, this does not mean that you will feel high for several months, just that it can be detected in your system for several months. Exactly how long Delta-10 THC can be detected depends on the method of testing.
For instance, if we are talking about a saliva test, Delta-10 THC will be detectable for up to three days, which is why a saliva test is not commonly used. It’s just not ideal for long-term testing.
Then, we have the urine test. Delta-10 THC can be detected in human urine within about 30 minutes after consumption. Depending on how fast your body gets rid of the THC, a urine test could detect it for up to three weeks.
We then have the hair follicle test. There is a very long detection window here; with Delta-10 THC, this can be seen in a hair follicle test for up to three or even four months.
If you smoke or vaporize Delta-10 THC, you should feel the effects for about three or four hours. If you ingest Delta-10 THC, you’ll feel the effects for up to 8 or 9 hours. Store them in a cool and dry place out of the sunlight, and your Delta-10 THC gummies and other edibles should last for at least a few months.
