Frequently Asked Questions about THCa

What is THCa?

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is a naturally occurring precursor of THC found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, which is psychoactive and gives you a “high,” THCa is non-psychoactive. However, when heated, THCa transforms into THC.

THCa comes in various forms, such as tinctures, topicals like creams, edibles, capsules, and more. Studies are currently underway to explore its potential benefits, which may include anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.

How does THCa work?

THCa interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the human body, similar to other cannabinoids. While the exact mechanisms are not entirely understood, it’s believed to engage with the system’s receptors, possibly offering various health benefits.

What does THCa stand for?

THCa is an abbreviation that stands for Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It is one of the numerous cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

Does THCa get you High?

No, THCa is non-psychoactive and does not induce a “high.” However, when decarboxylated (heated), it converts into THC, which is psychoactive.

How do you Decarboxylate THCa?

Decarboxylation is the process by which THCa is converted into THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid. This typically happens through the application of heat over a period of time. Here are a few methods:

  1. Oven Method: Spread cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and bake at 220°F (105°C) for 30 to 45 minutes.
  2. Smoking or Vaporizing: When you smoke or vaporize cannabis, the heat automatically decarboxylates the THCa, turning it into THC.

When you hit it from a vape, the heating mechanism heats up the THCa to a temperature where decarboxylation occurs, turning it into THC, which then produces psychoactive effects.

How can THCa help me?

Although research is ongoing, preliminary studies suggest that THCa may have a range of potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. However, we cannot make any medical claims. Always speak with a medical professional before handling or consuming THCa products.

How do I consume THCa products?

Depending on the product there are different forms of consumption:

  • Orally: You can ingest THCa edibles, tinctures, or capsules.
  • Topically: You can apply THCa creams or lotions directly to the skin.
  • Smoking: You can smoke THCa flower just like normal cannabis.
  • Vaporizing: You can vaporize THCa flower as an alternative to smoking.
  • Dabbing: You can dab THCa Concentrates like THCa Diamonds, Liquid Diamonds, Live Resin, and Live Rosin.

Please always speak with a medical professional before consumption. Never handle heavy machinery while under the influence of THCa products. Always start with a little and then work your way up to be safe, and so you can understand your tolerance.

What does THCa feel like?

Individual experiences with THCa can vary. Generally, users report no significant change in consciousness or psychoactive effects. Any potential sensation would likely relate to its therapeutic effects.

However if you choose to Decarboxylate THCa into THC by dabbing, vaporizing, smoking, or cooking you will get high. THC is very psychoactive and you must be careful with consumption.

Should I take THCa before a meal, after, or on an empty stomach?

There is limited data on the optimal time to consume THCa in relation to meals. It’s generally advisable to follow the specific product’s instructions or consult your healthcare provider.

How does THCa absorption work?

Absorption varies based on the form of THCa you’re using. In general, tinctures used sublingually may allow for faster absorption, while topical applications are designed for localized relief and may not enter the bloodstream.

What is the shelf life of THCa products?

The shelf life varies depending on the type of product and how it is stored. Always check the expiration date on the packaging.

Is THCa Legal?

One of the most pressing questions surrounding cannabinoid legality is, ‘Is THCa legal?’ To understand this, it’s essential to consider the impact of the 2018 Farm Bill. This pivotal legislation legalized hemp-derived cannabinoids, including CBD, by removing hemp from the list of controlled substances. However, THCa remains a gray area, as it can be converted into psychoactive THC, which is federally illegal in many jurisdictions. While the 2018 Farm Bill laid the groundwork for hemp and hemp-derived products, it did not expressly legalize all cannabinoids like THCa. The legality of THCa can vary by state, and even by its source—whether derived from hemp or marijuana. Therefore, individuals interested in using THCa should be well-versed in both federal and state laws to navigate the complex landscape of cannabinoid legality

The legality of THCa varies by jurisdiction and is often tied to the legality of cannabis in a specific location. Always check your local laws before purchasing.

Are there side effects of THCa?

THCa is generally considered safe and non-psychoactive. However through decarboxylation you create THC which is highly psychoactive. If this occurs you never know how you will respond as everyone is different. However, consult your healthcare provider, especially if you’re pregnant, nursing, or taking other medications.

How do I know the quality of THCa?

Look for the Certificate of Analysis (COA) on each product page. This certification provides information about the concentration of THCa and its components.
