THCA Flower contains high amounts of THCA that doesn’t become THC until converted during heating (smoking, vaping, etc). In the dried flower, high THCA and less than .3% THC means fully legal Cannabis Flower (AKA Hemp by definition of US Farm Bill).
Shop THCA Flower
THCA flower is the latest cannabis flower to be sold under hemp regulations. THCA flower contains less than .3% THC but contains much higher levels of THCA which is converted to THC when it is smoked or decarboxylated. THCA is the non-intoxicating precursor to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and it only becomes psychoactive when subjected to heat, such as through smoking or vaporization.
One of the biggest misunderstandings is that people do not understand that THCA flower, Hemp flower, CBD flower and marijuana are all technically “cannabis”. The difference is the levels of THCA / THC in the plant. In order for cannabis flower to be considered “Hemp” it has to contain less than .3% THC, but is still considered cannabis.
No, THCA flower is high in THCA whereas Delta 9 flower is high in delta 9 THC which is the converted form of THCA.
THCA flower is typically consumed by smoking it in a pipe, rolling a joint, mixing with tobacco in a blunt, smoking it in a water bong or vaporizing it in a vaporizer, just to name a few. Only when THCA flower is exposed to heat (decarboxylated) during these consumption methods, is the THCA converted into THC, which is when the desired “high” or elevated effects are felt.
The legality of THCA flower depends on the laws and regulations of the specific country or state. In some places, THCA flower derived from hemp (containing less than 0.3% THC) may be legal, while in others, it may be subject to stricter regulations. Always check your local laws before purchasing or using THCA flower.
To maintain the quality and potency of THCA flower, it should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Exposure to light, heat, and air can lead to the degradation of THCA (and other terpenes and cannabinoids) into THC over time, reducing the overall THCA content in the flower.
When you smoke THCA flower it is converted into THC and you will most likely feel elevated effects that are referred to as “high”.
Yes, THCA is usually converted into THC no matter which way you consume it. Even ingesting THCA, your body will convert some of the THCA, and it is possible for it to show up on a drug test depending on certain variables such as frequency of use, amount consumed, etc.
Good rule of thumb, the percentage of THCA has the same effects as THC when it is converted by smoking or decarboxylating the flower. Average THCA percentage on the market today is around 25%.
The main difference is the original composition of the cannabinoids in the flower. THCA flower has a composition of mainly THCA with very little to no delta 9 which is the reason a lot of THCA flower is considered “hemp”. Delta 9 flower can have THCA but it also has high levels of delta 9 THC which classifies the flower as marijuana.
Most delta 9 flower is classified as marijuana and needs to be purchased through a legal dispensary.
