What is THCa and what do I need to know?

What is the difference between THCa and Delta-9 THC and what do I need to know?

If you’re someone who is interested in the world of cannabis you’ve probably heard of THC, or Delta-9 THC as it is often more specifically called in the market. However, you may not have heard of a lesser known cannabinoid taking the THC community by storm, THCa, and find out what you need to know.

What is THCa?

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is a highly abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within cannabis, and hemp in general. Unlike its counterpart THC, THCa is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you intoxicated. However, through a process called decarboxylation, THCa can be transformed into delta-9 THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the euphoric effects associated with cannabis. This process can be achieved by smoking, vaping, or baking THCa. So, while THCa itself may not have intoxicating properties, it holds the potential to become a source of enjoyable experiences with just a little heat.

How To Take THCa?

There are a number of ways to consume THCa, like most forms of cannabis. THCa is an abundant cannabinoid grown on hemp that is easily extracted and concentrated into edibles, vapes, extracts, or concentrates to suite your every need. The question is what form best fits your preferred wants and needs?

THCa flower can be grown to high strength, looking so gorgeous you wouldn’t know it wasn’t actual THC. Classic flower to be ground and burned or vaped, hard to go wrong with a classic and perfect for rolling.

Because THCa is required to be heated to convert to Delta-9 THC it is the natural choice to be used in distillate and oils. Cartridges are the single use form, filled with THCa distillate/oil, and loaded on a reusable pen. These are very convenient as they allow for a more customizable experience as well as adjustable heating and airflow.

THCa distillate and oil can be loaded into a all in one disposable pen, typically rechargeable to ensure they can be finished. Only built to last long enough to survive the 2/3/4g lifetime and be discarded, hence the name. With only typically one button on the front for heating they don’t have much to show in the way of settings or customizations, but they do their job.

You can never go wrong with edibles, from gummies to brownies. Known for their slow onset and long lasting effects edibles are a reliable way to plan your dosage over a longer period of time.

THCa And Its Effects On The Body

Thankfully, because THCa gets converted into THC before it is absorbed by the body we have a pretty good understanding of its effects on the body and what it can do. 


While THC products may cause anxiety in excess, light to moderate use provides anxiety relief and a sense of calm. It’s always best to go slow and progress at your own pace, remember you can always take more but you cannot take it back. 


Perfect for restoring an appetite, what was once the munchies is now a cancer wonder drug. It’s a miracle cannabinoids bake up so well, THCa is no exception, it just has to be decarboxylated by baking the flower first or not all the THCa will transform into THC.


THC products can provide a great relief for people suffering from nausea, be it from a weak stomach or a woozy head. 

Pain Relief

One of the most important benefits THC has to offer is the pain relieving qualities. From arthritis to work pains THC is a fantastic option for light to moderate pain relief without having to consume pills or medication. 


THCa, when converted into THC and consumed, is fantastic when used as a sleep aid. It is best consumed lightly some time before bed to help get to sleep, however over consumption can prevent deep REM sleep which provides longer and more fulfilling sleep. 

Is THCa Legal?

Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill hemp with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC became legal. This created a demand for newly legalized alternative cannabinoids such as THCa, among many, which began to flood the market as they were legal across nearly the whole U.S. and in high demand. Some states and municipalities turned to outlaw the new hemp based products, while others preferred to further legalize the traditional Delta-9 both medically and recreationally. The point being is that the legality of cannabis within the U.S. is a complicated, messy, and ever evolving subject and is always best to research up to date local laws and regulations for yourself. 

Where To Find THCa

Now that you know THCa is a widely available cannabinoid and even which form of THCa fits best for you, the question becomes where to get it?
