WHAT IS THCA?
THCa (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is the acidic form of Delta 9 THC, the cannabinoid primarily responsible for the psychotropic effects of cannabis. In this acid form, THCa does not have psychoactive effects and cannot get you high. However, THCa is easily converted to THC with heat through a process called decarboxylation.
THCa that is vaped or smoked is naturally decarboxylated, or activated, into THC and will thus be psychoactive and get you high. As a precursor to THC, THCa has nearly the same potency as THC and can be ingested in its natural form without getting you high. Decarboxylation of THCa also occurs with exposure to light and as cannabis is dried and cured, although at a much slower rate.
THCA PRODUCTS’ BENEFITS AND EFFECTS
In its natural form, THCa is not psychotropic and will not get you high. However, the THCa in many products is decarboxylated when they are used, converting the cannabinoid to psychotropic THC. For example, THCa products that are smoked or vaped will undergo decarboxylation and be converted to psychotropic THC.
THCa tinctures and other oral formulations will not be decarboxylated during use, preserving the THCa in its original form. However, those subject to drug screenings should note that consuming THCa could result in a positive test for cannabis. In the same way, similar THC products have euphoric, relaxing, and altered perception effects when decarboxylated into THC before or during use.

THCA PRODUCTS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THCA AND THC?
THCa is the acidic form of Delta 9 THC (often referred to as simply THC), the cannabinoid primarily responsible for the well-known psychoactive effects of smoking cannabis. When heated by smoking or vaping, THCa undergoes a process known as decarboxylation that turns it into THC. So, although they vary slightly chemically if THCa is smoked or vaped, it has the same psychoactive effects as THC.
DOES THCA MAKE YOU HIGH?
Yes, THCa will get you high if it is smoked or vaped. THCa that is ingested orally, such as in tinctures or edibles, is not psychoactive.
WHAT IS CONSIDERED A HIGH THCA PERCENTAGE?
The percentage of THCa generally considered to be a high amount varies with the product being considered. For THCa flower, THCa percentages greater than 15% to 20% are generally considered relatively potent, with percentages of up to 25% considered quite high, although percentages approaching 30% THCa are not unknown. For THCa concentrates, anything above 50% THCa is considered fairly potent, with potencies of 60% and up generally considered high. THCa carts and disposable vapes from The Hemp Collect are tested for potency and have 63% THCa.
WHAT IS THCA FLOWER?
THCa flower is a cannabis flower that is rich in THCa. At The Hemp Collect, fresh hemp plants covered with THCa flower are flash-frozen at the peak of ripeness before being extracted by skilled professionals to produce THCa-rich live resin. The premier cannabis concentrate, 100% uncut live resin, is used to fill both our THCa carts and disposable vapes.
WHAT ARE THCA VAPES?
THCa vapes are vape carts or disposable vaporizers that are prefilled with THCa extracts. They are both compact, portable, and discreet, making them convenient and easy to use. A disposable vape combines a battery with a cartridge and contains enough battery power to fully vaporize the contents of its cartridge. THCa vape carts are glass and metal cartridges containing THCa that are used with a separate rechargeable battery, with the industry standard being a 510-threaded battery. When connected to the battery and powered on, either by inhaling or pressing a button, the heating element built into the cartridge vaporizes the extract for easy inhalation.
Our THCa disposables and THCa vapes contain 100% uncut live resin, making them perfect for those seeking true cannabis flavor and effect. Many other THCa products on the market use terpenes blended with inferior cannabis extracts in an attempt to copy the plant, while ours are true whole-plant extractions. This difference has a significant effect on the product’s overall quality, taste, and effect.
WHAT ARE THCA CARTS?
THCa cartridges are cylindrical glass vaporizer cartridges that contain the cannabinoid THCa. Our THCa vape carts are state-of-the-art vaporizer hardware made to fit batteries with a 510 thread, the industry standard for cannabis vape pens. All of our THCa carts are filled with premium cannabis concentrates made from federally legal hemp by experienced cultivators.
THCa vape carts offer a convenient and discreet way to consume Delta-9 THC (commonly referred to as simply THC), the cannabinoid largely associated with the classic “high” experienced after smoking cannabis. When heated by the heating element in the cartridge, THCa transforms into THC, which provides the full flavor and health benefits of cannabis when used. When you’re ready to experience the psychoactive effects of THCa, turn to The Hemp Collect for the best THCa carts you can find.
HOW DOES THCA BECOME THC?
In the presence of heat, THCa converts into THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. THC’s psychotropic properties are accessed through decarboxylation, a conversion process.
When THCa undergoes decarboxylation, it loses its carboxyl group and transforms into THC. When cannabis is heated, such as when it is smoked or vaporized, this process is activated. Through heat, THCa molecules are effectively transformed into THC by removing a carboxyl group.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THCA AND DELTA-9 THC?
THCa and Delta-9 THC are two different compounds known as cannabinoids found in cannabis. Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, or THCa, is a non-psychoactive compound found in raw cannabis. The psychoactive component of cannabis, known simply as THC, is formed by converting THCa into Delta-9 THC once heated. This conversion process is known as decarboxylation and is essential for unlocking the psychoactive properties of Delta 9 THC.
THCa differs from Delta-9 THC primarily due to its non-psychotropic nature, whereas Delta-9 THC is psychotropic and can get you high. It is not a cannabinoid that binds to the CB1 or CB2 receptors, where cannabinoids exert their effects on the brain. Before decarboxylation, THCa was not a psychoactive cannabinoid. Unless it is consumed raw, THCa has no intoxicating effects. However, the heat causes THCA to decarboxylate into Delta 9 THC when smoking or vaping THCa flower.
HOW IS THCA EXTRACTED?
THCa is extracted from cannabis and hemp plants using one of several methods. In hydrocarbon extraction, a hydrocarbon gas such as butane is used as a solvent to strip the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial botanical compounds from the plant material. The hydrocarbon is then carefully purged from the resulting cannabis extract to produce high-quality THCa concentrates. Ethanol and CO₂ extraction are both similar processes, with CO₂ extraction using the ubiquitous gas as the solvent and ethanol using a food-grade alcohol solvent.
IS THCA HEMP FLOWER LEGAL?
Yes, THCa hemp flower and other THCa products are federally legal, although some states have passed regulations banning or restricting some hemp-derived cannabis products. Hemp-derived THCa is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp agriculture and hemp products nationwide.
WHAT IS HEMP-DERIVED THCA?
Hemp-derived With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, THCa can now only be obtained through the exclusive extraction of hemp. All THCa for sale at The Hemp Collect is derived from hemp.
IS THCA HEMP COVERED UNDER THE 2018 FARM BILL?
As a result of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp agriculture and hemp products are now legal. According to the bill, hemp is a cannabis plant whose delta-9 THC content is less than 0.3%. Because hemp produces no controlled substance, its THCa can comply with the Farm Bill. THCa, including hemp and its derivatives, was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill as long as the final product contained less than 0.3% delta-9 THC.
IS THCA STRONGER THAN DELTA 8?
Yes, THCa is stronger than Delta 8. When it is decarboxylated, THCa yields about 90% pure THC. As a result, THCa products that are smoked or vaped are nearly as potent as similar THC products. Delta 8, on the other hand, is generally considered to be about half as potent as THC, making THCa products more potent than Delta 8 products with similar cannabinoid content.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO USE THCA?
To get the psychoactive effects of THC, the best way to use THCa is with products that are smoked or vaped. That way, you’ll be sure to convert the THCa to THC, the compound that will get you high. Eating THCa that has not been decarboxylated will not get you high because the cannabinoid is not psychotropic in its acid form.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THCA?
Using cannabinoids, including THCa, can also have side effects that can vary depending on the type of cannabinoid used, the dose, and the method of consumption. Some common side effects include dry mouth, red eyes, impaired memory, and impaired motor skills. Side effects are less likely if THCa that has not been decarboxylated is eaten rather than consumed via smoking or vaping.
WILL THCA CAUSE A POSITIVE DRUG TEST?
Yes, because THCa converts to THC when it is vaporized, using THCa products can result in a positive test on most drug screenings for cannabis. Those subject to drug tests for cannabis should avoid cannabis products, including THCa.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE TO PURCHASE THCA PRODUCTS?
Regulations governing the sale and use of THCa and other cannabis products can vary from state to state. At The Hemp Collect, we only sell THCa vapes and other hemp-derived cannabis products to adults aged 21 and older.
IS IT SAFE TO USE THCA?
Yes, THCa is generally considered safe when used in moderation. Cannabis is one of the safest drugs used recreationally, with no confirmed deaths caused by a cannabis overdose ever recorded, although smoking cannabis presents its own set of health problems. Using too much cannabis at one time, however, can cause extreme discomfort, anxiety, and paranoia.
Using cannabis products can also have side effects that can vary depending on the type of cannabinoid used, the dose, and the method of consumption. Some common side effects include dry mouth, red eyes, impaired memory, and impaired motor skills.
Cannabis was classified as a lower-risk drug by the Department of Health and Human Services in August 2022. That being said, there are potential risks associated with using cannabis products. According with the CDC, cannabis use may have a wide range of health effects on the body and brain. It is possible that these effects may include addictions, cancer, heart problems, mental health issues, teen brain development, lung problems, and pregnancy complications. There is an increased risk of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety associated with heavy use of cannabis, according to the Yale School of Medicine.
