You’ve heard of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, but did you know that it actually doesn’t exist in the raw plant?

What is THCa?

 THCa (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is the non-psychoactive acid form of THC found in the plant when raw. THC starts off as THC-A, which becomes THC when the plant is heated, burned, or vaporized, a process known as decarboxylation. While THC gives you that familiar “high”, THC-A is actually non psychoactive, which is why eating a cannabis flower fresh off the plant won’t give you a psychoactive effect.

What are the benefits of THCa?

 

Emerging research is beginning to show the potential benefits derived from THCa without the high.

These include fighting nausea and appetite loss, anti-inflammatory applications, pain relief, and as a neuro-protective agent. THC-A truly is proving to be a non-psychoactive alternative to many of the benefits of THC, and further research will only open the door to more possibilities.

THC-A products and even juiced raw plants are becoming more and more available as demand grows. THCa products need to be kept in a cool, dark place… as heat will transform the volatile molecule into psychoactive THC. They’re great for direct oral and sublingual delivery, and can even be added to cold drinks like fresh juice or a smoothie.
