Yes! Since it contains less than 0.3% D9 THC by dry weight, THCa flower is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Some states have since gone back and specifically made THCa or other cannabinoids illegal, though, so you’ll have to check your local laws to make sure that you can legally smoke THCa flower.
Yes! THCa flower is all-natural. Many other kinds of legal cannabis flower have been infused with extracts. These extracts can be safe and give you a great-tasting bud (and an excellent high), but some prefer it all natural. THCa flower is a perfect option if you’re looking for legal weed without any additives. As a bonus, all Bay Smokes THCa flower is organically-grown right here in the U.S.
Yes! THCa carts and other extracts should be treated as having the same potency level as dispensary grade extracts. THCa converts to D9 THC when smoked or vaporized. Most Dispensary products could technically be considered THCa Hemp products if they were grown by a hemp license holder.
Live Resin Vs. Live Rosin
The most premium cannabis extract is Live Rosin. This is made by a process of taking freshly harvested cannabis plants, freezing them to preserve the robust terpene profile, then making ice water hash. The first step of the process uses only ice water and gentle stirring to knock off the trichomes.
After the trichomes are removed and dried, they are brought to the rosin press and with low heat and high pressure, the precious oils are squished out of the trichomes and collected.
Similar to live rosin, live resin starts by taking a freshly harvested cannabis plant, immediately freezing, then sending off for hydrocarbon extraction. This process uses solvents to separate all the plant material from the cannabinoids and terpenes. After the oils are separated, the solvent is fully removed so the product is safe to smoke.
Live resin and live rosin are very similar products, however one is made without the use of any solvents. Live rosin only involves ice water, heat, and pressure. Some find this to be the highest quality of cannabis extract. Although live resin uses solvents during the extraction, all the solvents are removed before the product is packaged for sale.
