What is THCA

What is THCa Flower?

THCa Flower refers to unprocessed, raw buds containing high percentages of THCa – otherwise known by its full name, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid.

The budz we have are super stinky, full of trichomes, and hella sticky. Top shelf stuff for sure. Its super fun to break down one of these packs and load a bowl. My fingers stick together and the room smells real nice! Smokes smooth and only white ash is left. So far I really like the Pink Runtz but I am working my way through all the flavors.

What’s the difference between THCa and THC?

Not a huge amount, actually. Without getting too deep into the science, THCa is simply the precursor to THC. It is a compound that converts to THC when exposed to heat. When heat is applied to THCa flowers, the THCa decarboxylates, resulting in it losing one of its carboxyl groups and converting into THC. THC has a very similar structure to anandamide, one of the cannabinoids that naturally occur in the human body, making it very easily absorbed by our systems.

Is THCa Flower Actually Legal?

That really depends on where you live. Although the FDA does not explicitly ban the production and sale of THCa flowers – which essentially makes THCa flowers legal at the federal level.

What is High THC-a flower?

High THC-a flower is simply just that, cannabis flower containing a high amount of THCa. For a flower to be classed as “high THCa”, it needs to test out at above 1% THCa.

Will using THCa hemp flower cause users to fail a drug test? Yes. THCa hemp flower contains cannabinoids, including THC, which may cause a user to fail a drug test. Therefore, individuals should not use THCa hemp flower if they are subject to drug testing.

Is THCa hemp flower lawful under federal law? Yes. Under federal law, harvested THCa hemp flower is lawful. This is because the federal 2018 Farm Bill distinguishes between lawful harvested hemp and unlawful marijuana based on the levels of delta-9 THC, not THCa. Harvested cannabis, including its flowers and buds, with no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight is lawful hemp, regardless of the amount of THCa or any other cannabinoid, such as CBD, that it contains. Additionally, the federal Controlled Substances Act, which regulates drugs, removes hemp from the definition of marijuana. In other words, hemp is not an illegal controlled substance under federal law.

What does the DEA say about THCa hemp flower? THCa hemp flower meets the DEA’s definition of lawful hemp. According to the DEA, “material that is derived or extracted from the cannabis plant such as tissue culture and any other genetic material that has a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis meets the legal definition of “hemp” and is thus not controlled under the CSA.”3

Have any federal courts ruled on THCa hemp flower? No. However, the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has stated the following regarding another type of hemp product, which supports the legal status of THCa hemp flower: “the only statutory metric for distinguishing controlled marijuana from legal hemp is the delta-9 THC concentration level.”

Can THCa hemp flower be shipped across state lines? Yes, the interstate transfer of hemp, which includes THCa hemp flower, is authorized by federal law. 7 USC § 1621 subsection 10114(b), states in relevant part: “No State or Indian Tribe shall prohibit the transportation or shipment of hemp or hemp products produced in accordance with subtitle G of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (AMA) (as added by section 10113) through the State or the territory of the Indian Tribe, as applicable.”5 Although state laws vary with respect to hemp and hemp products, it is absolutely clear that states and Indian tribes may not prohibit the transport of them through their borders.

Is it lawful to smoke THCa hemp flower in public or to have a package of it open in a car? Due to the current confusion about its legal status, we do not recommend smoking it in public or having an open package of it in vehicles. Additionally, we recommend that it be sold to consumers only in pre-packaged, sealed bags or containers with labels clearly stating that it is lawful hemp.

How should you store THCa hemp flower? All of our hemp flower is tested to ensure legal compliance. In other words, our Hemp only possesses and distributes lawful hemp. However, it is important to understand that THCa hemp flower will change form and become illegal marijuana if the THCa in it decarboxylates and raises the concentration of delta-9 THC to above 0.3%. In addition to the natural process of decarboxylation over time, THCa will also convert to delta-9 THC when it is exposed to heat and light. We strongly recommend storing THCa hemp flower in a cool, dark, dry location in order to limit the amount of THCa that is unintentionally converted to delta-9 THC through the process of decarboxylation.
