What is THCA?

What is THCa

THCa is one of many naturally occurring cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants. In its raw form, THCa does not contain psychoactive properties. As the only THC molecule in cannabis, when THCa goes through a decarboxylation process it becomes THC and is responsible for delivering the "high" associated with cannabis use.  In simpler terms, once THCa is heated the conversion process of THCa to THC is immediate, which is why we feel psychoactive effects when consuming THCa flower. 

Is THCA Legal?

THCa is currently legal in Wichita, Kansas; however, laws surrounding cannabis products vary between states, counties, and cities. It is essential to research the specific cannabis laws in your jurisdiction, as they are constantly evolving. We can confidently say our THCa contains 0.3% of delta 9 THC or less, which complies with all federal, state, and local laws. 

Effects & Benefits of THCA?

THCa, when smoked, may leave users feeling relaxed and in a better mood (high). It can help change your perceptions and cause memory or cognition problems. Physically, THCa users feel feel thirsty or experience dry eyes. In high doses, cannabis may also increase anxiety or paranoia and cause reduced mobility.  Some research has demonstrated that THCa offers anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and anti-seizure effects, but the full health and benefits of cannabinoids are not fully understood, at least when it comes to published scientific research. 

What is a High THCa Percentage?

THCa percentages over 15% are considered potent strains. However, it's important to note that the potency of cannabis is not exclusively determined by THCa/THC content.  A high percentage strain, on its own, will provide minimally sustained psychoactive effects.  The magic is really in the symphony of effects unique to each plant. Compounds such as cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, protein, fiber, vitamins, & minerals work perfectly together to provide an assortment of benefits known as the entourage effect. If you are looking to experience cannabis in its true essence, consider the full testing profile of each strain & try out combinations of terpenes & cannabinoids to see how you feel.
