An Overview of THC-A

THCA, or Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid, is an acid precursor of the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis: Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Found in high concentrations in the raw form of the cannabis plant, it undergoes a process called decarboxylation when exposed to heat. In this transformative process, THCA converts to THC, enabling users to experience the euphoric effects associated with cannabis.

Unlike Delta 9 THC, THCA in its raw, unheated form does not produce psychoactive effects. This critical distinction provides a myriad of potential applications for THCA, as it can be consumed in its raw form without inducing the 'high' that THC is known for, but it does induce a high when burned.

Legal Aspects of THCA: A Federally Legal Substance

The 2018 Farm Bill has had a significant influence on the cannabis industry. It legalized the production and sale of hemp and hemp-derived products, as long as they contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. This legislation separates hemp from marijuana in terms of legality, based on the THC content.

In its raw form, THCA is not psychoactive, and hence, it's not regulated like Delta 9 THC. Therefore, THC-A hemp flower and other THC-A products fall under the federally legal category according to the stipulations of the 2018 Farm Bill. However, it's worth noting that state laws vary regarding hemp and hemp-derived products, and consumers are advised to check the local laws of their area. The Green Nursery asks that you be aware of your own State and county laws when ordering.

THCA Hemp Flower: High Levels of Potential

Growers can create hemp plants that contain a significant amount of THCA when grown with special care. When heated, the THCA in these plants will convert to THC, resulting in a feeling of euphoria for the user. In essence, THCA hemp flower serves as a federally legal, accessible vehicle for THC once decarboxylated.

THCA vs. Delta 9 and Delta 8 THC

THCA is a unique cannabinoid due to its transformation into Delta 9 THC when heated, providing the sought-after 'high.' In contrast to Delta 8 THC, THCA is naturally more abundant in raw cannabis plants. Thus, when you buy THCA hemp flower, you get a product with a natural, unaltered cannabinoid profile that can offer the Delta 9 THC experience when decarboxylated. In contrast, companies that offer 'delta 8 flower' are really selling regular hemp flower with Delta 8 distillate sprayed on it.  

Drug Test Considerations

When it comes to THCA products and drug testing, it is important to understand that these products could result in a positive drug test for THC. This is because THCA converts to THC once it undergoes decarboxylation. Therefore, consumers who may be subject to drug testing should consider this when deciding whether or not to use THCA hemp flower, as it may lead to a positive drug test result.

The Versatility of THCA

THCA's versatility truly shines when we consider the variety of consumption methods. Whether in its raw form or decarboxylated, THCA can be incorporated into your routine in various ways. We cover this in full detail in our  THCA Ultimate Beginner's Guide.

  1. Raw Form: Raw, high-quality THCA, often found in juices or smoothies, offers potential therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive effects. Using THCA in this manner allows the consumer to experience the potential benefits of cannabis without the 'high.'
  2. Smoking or Vaping: Heating THCA leads to decarboxylation, converting the acidic form into THC. This method is popular with consumers seeking the traditional psychoactive effects of cannabis.
  3. Edibles: THCA can also be included in edibles. However, the heat involved in cooking may lead to decarboxylation, transforming THCA into THC.
  4. Topicals: THCA is also used in topicals, providing potential localized benefits without systemic psychoactive effects.

At The Green Nursery, we proudly offer a variety of THCA products to cater to the varied needs of our clientele.

Quick Q&A Recap:

What is THCA and how is it different from THC?

THCA, or Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid, is a non-psychoactive compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It's the precursor to THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the "high" feeling. When THCA is exposed to heat (a process called decarboxylation), it converts into THC. Some actually argue that there is literally no difference between marijuana and THCA hemp.

Is THCA hemp flower legal?

Yes, under federal law, THCA hemp flower is legal in all 50 states, provided it complies with the 2018 Farm Bill stipulations. This law mandates that all hemp and hemp-derived products must contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. However, because state laws vary, it's always a good idea to check local regulations. Further, the laws around THCA are blurry at best, and anticipate that this could be a short lived window.

Will using THCA hemp flower cause a positive result on a drug test?

If you  consume THCA Hemp Flower by a method that involves heat, such as smoking or vaping, the THCA converts to THC. THC will most likely be detected on a drug test. However, consuming THCA in its raw form (without heating) is less likely to yield a positive drug test for THC, though you'd have no reason to do so.

Can I use THCA in its raw form?

Yes, in its raw form, THCA can be consumed in various ways such as juicing or blending into smoothies. This allows you to potentially reap the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effects. However, remember that heating THCA (as in cooking or baking) will convert it into THC.
