Making delta 8 with c-bleach, CBC??


I added 10% c-bleach to my RBF of a series of mixed tails. Did my best to push out all of the azulene, but my distillate still came out very dark. I had it tested by the testing company we go through and it came in at 69% delta 9 THC and 11% CBC. Am I missing something here?
Any input is much appreciated


no, your testing company is.

see THC Imposters (Isomers)

$50 says there is no CBC in your distillate & you made what is often referred to as delta 10 THC.

I’m not sure Steephill calling it such is definitive, but I’m certainly rolling with that moniker till someone with the correct tooling (yes, I’m looking at you @QGA :wink: ) tells me otherwise.


The classic where did my thc go post


One of the primary sources of issues is running a Vac/temp program that hits the material with too much heat too close to atmosphere. 10% is on the aggressive side as well. You can start with 5%.


I’m tentatively calling it d10 or d10a/6a. There are two peaks that I see from degradation in my GC. This is also seen in LC. I’ve been told it’s not d10 by the scientific director of a testing lab that I trust. That only means to me that it might not be the same stereoisomer as the d10 standard they have. There are 4 possible stereoisomers, the diasteromers could have different boiling points and retention times. Or it could be a mix of d10 and d10a/6a (god only knows if each peak is a racemic mix of each compounds enantiomers).

Clear as mud? I’ll attach a picture of each to my next post.

The sketch and the iSpartan minimum energy conformer of one isomer (S,R). I better have gotten that right…

Is there ANY confirmation whatsoever that these mystery peaks are d10? This community often mixes up hypothesis and fact, and I’m trying to understand if there is any actual data to confirm d10 exists in these samples or people are just guessing.


Someone should try and access (isolate or synthesize) all known cannabanoids and report: spectroscopical data, retention times, Rfs, etc. This would help clear up a lot of confusion.


Have you scoured the data dump?

I swear I stumbled across at least some of that data.

It wasn’t what I was looking for at the time, and I figured it was “easily looked up”.

Can’t find it again…

If it’s not there, maybe you should make that your PhD thesis? There seem to be a number of programs willing to wxplore that.
