THCa is Taking the Cannabis Industry by Storm

Over the past few years, THCa. commonly known as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid – has been taking the cannabis industry by storm. As a non-psychoactive compound found in raw and live cannabis, it is becoming increasingly popular for its potential health benefits.

While research on this topic is still ongoing, there are already some promising findings that point to THCa as being beneficial for treating pain and inflammation, as well as providing antiemetic effects. Additionally, many believe that it can also help with insomnia and even act as an antioxidant. While in raw form THCa doesn't have any euphoric or psychoactive side effects like regular weed does.

However, when heated THCa flower releases THC and thus unblocks the psychoactive affects, which is something that many cannabis enthusiasts enjoy. After all, cannabis has been proven to help with various terminal and other diseases, which is why THCa and it's versatility are growing more popular by the day. With that in mind, let's have a look at why THCa is taking the cannabis industry by storm.

What is THCa?

As mentioned before, THCa, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is basically THC in its raw form, which is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis. THCa is not psychoactive itself and does not produce any of the effects associated with THC.

However, when heated, it converts to THC and can produce those effects. The heating process is called decarboxylation and it converts THCa into pure THC with all the euphoric and psychoactive effects.So far, THCa has been studied for its potential therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.

Is THCa Legal?

Back in 2018, USA introduced a bill called the "Farm Bill" which basically legalizes hemp and all its derivatives, provided they contain less than 0.3% THC. However, much like with gambling laws in the US, each state decides whether to regulate or prohibit any use or missuses or cannabis.

Therefore, it all depends in which state you are. However, THCa doesn't have any ill side effects so it can be used for therapeutic purposes and it won't show up on any drug tests. Although, there are tests that can detect THCa in your system and thus produce a false-positive, which can get you in trouble if the state you live in has strict laws.

How potent is THCa?

Even though THCa doesn't contain any psychoactive effects, it does have the same potency like regular cannabis does. Therefore, everything depends on the strain of the THCa flower, its potency and individuals' resistance to THC. These factors also contribute to the flavor of the THCa flowers.
