Delta-10, a mildly psychoactive hemp THC product, is making rounds in the form of vapes, edibles, and even delta-10 hemp flower. Although it's legal and makes a good low-potency dose for new consumers, many people are still worried about discretion–does Delta-10 smell like weed?
Not exactly. Delta-10-THC in its purest form doesn't have much of a smell at all. Different types of Delta-10-THC products, however, have different smells that range from fruity fragrances to oily aromas and yes, to the herbal scent of weed.
Whether you’re looking for a product that’s entirely discreet or you want something to mimic the sweet fragrance of cannabis flowers, here’s what you need to know:
As we mentioned, Delta-10-THC doesn’t really have a scent of its own. Most of cannabis’ scent comes from terpenes, and the rest of the aroma comes from plant compounds like chlorophyll. The different extraction methods and formulations used all affect how much plant material makes it into the final product.
The scent of a particular product just depends on how it’s made since some products do contain terpenes, as well as flavoring and other ingredients that add to the fragrance.
So the answer is—it really depends on what type of Delta-10-THC product you choose and on the actual ingredients used in the product.
If you’re looking for Delta-10-THC products that don’t smell like weed you’ll probably want to opt for an edible or tincture.
In general, edibles don’t smell like cannabis or contain much leftover plant material, and instead will smell like whatever flavoring, sweetener, or other food ingredients are used. Edibles, including candies, gummies, or baked goods, are easily the most discreet dosing option.
Delta-10 tinctures generally don’t smell like cannabis either, although some contain terpenes that give them an herbal aroma. Some tinctures contain flavoring and sweeteners and smell more like an edible, but tinctures are distinctly different from standard edible products. Still, tinctures can be pretty discreet since they don’t leave behind any weed smell.
Some Delta-10-THC products mimic the smell of cannabis a bit more intensely, and for obvious reasons. These products are much less discreet, but often contain hemp-derived terpenes, which may enhance the therapeutic benefits of the formula. Some Delta-10-THC products, like in the form of Hemp THC flower, are made from real hemp flower. These products obviously smell and look a lot like traditional cannabis products.
Hemp THC vaporizers are kind of on the fence. Some have added ingredients that make them taste sweet, and those vaporizers may not really smell like weed. Some Delta-10 vapes take a more natural approach and include only hemp oil, Delta-10 distillate, and terpenes. Those vaporizers may have an herbal smell that mimics the smell of cannabis, although not as intensely.
The smell from a vaporizer usually dissipates more quickly than hemp flower when it is smoked, too, so vaporizers are sometimes still useful as a discreet dosing option.
Because hemp-derived THC products are legal, you can easily buy Delta-10-THC products online. Still, you want to be wary of cheaply made, untested products.
