Thca flower is a unique strain of hemp that has been bred to contain high levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA). Like other raw cannabis flowers, THCA offers a wide range of wellness benefits and medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-emetic effects.
Unlike most other cannabis products, THCA flower is legally federally compliant due to the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized industrial hemp and all products derived from it. However, some states still have DEA controlled substance laws that may require the testing of THCA-containing products.
Hemp with 20% or more THCA and up to.29% Delta-9 THC is legal in most states, according to the Farm Bill. This means that hemp flower with a high THCA content can be legally sold online.
Unlocking the Potential of THCA Flower: A Comprehensive Guide
Decarboxylation is the process that turns THCa into regular Delta-9 THC, which is what gives people the psychoactive effects of marijuana. This can happen when you smoke it, vaporize it, or make edibles.
THCa is also a popular ingredient in topical products such as balms and creams. These can be rubbed directly onto the skin, where it can help improve eczema and acne.
When dissolved in alcohol or oil, a tincture of THCA can be taken orally. This can be very beneficial for patients who have difficulty absorbing THC through the stomach.
THCA can be decarboxylated by heat, so it should not be consumed in its raw form. This is why some THCA-lovers choose to add it to green juices or use it as a seasoning herb in cold dishes.
