11 Hydroxy THC
What are THCa Diamonds?
THCa diamonds are a super-potent type of THCa extract that form when you make sauce, another type of extract. These “diamonds” are the crystallized parts of sauce. They’re made almost completely out of pure THCa and are known for being super smooth and potent.
Will THCa Diamonds Get Me High?
Yes! Just like other forms of THCa, the THCa in THCa diamonds will turn into THC when you add heat. Pure THCa diamonds means pure THC when it’s heated up, so you’ll definitely be feeling it.
How Strong are THCa Diamonds?
THCa diamonds are made almost entirely out of THCa, which means they’re super strong. THCa flower has other cannabinoids and compounds in it, so THCa diamonds are a little bit stronger than that. Most THCa flower contains around 20% THCa by dry weight, and THCa diamonds have a way higher concentration of THCa than that. We’ll let you do the math!
Are THCa Diamonds Legal?
THCa diamonds fall into the same legal category as THCa flower and other THCa products. As long as they contain less than 0.3% THC by weight, they’re fine under the 2018 Farm Bill. Some states have laws clarifying the finer details of the 2018 Farm Bill, so we can’t send THCa diamonds to every state, but it’s still legal in a lot of places in the U.S.
Always make sure to check your local laws before buying any new kinds of cannabinoid product, though.
How Do I Use THCa Diamonds?
Wondering how to use THCa diamonds? The sky is the limit! You can use them just like you’d use any other extract. Try them in a dab rig for something classic, use THCa diamonds in a vape to get lifted on the go, or try adding it to flower in a joint, blunt, or bowl to kick things up a notch.
You can even use THCa diamonds to make DIY edibles, from brownies to savory treats and everything in between.
What is THCa?
THCa is a natural cannabinoid that shows up in hemp and cannabis plants. It’s the precursor to THC, which means that THCa turns into THC when you add heat. You can probably guess what that means — when you smoke, vape, or cook with these diamonds, they’ll get activated and turn into THC.
Where Does THCa Come From?
THCa comes from THCa flower, which is bud that’s been specially grown and bred to have super high levels of THCa. That THCa can then be extracted and turned into all kinds of awesome THCa products, like diamonds and extracts.
Are THCa Diamonds Legal?
Yes! Most THCa flower is bred to have high levels of THCa and less than 0.3% THC, the legal limit under the 2018 Farm Bill. Even though that THCa turns into THC when you heat it up, THCa is technically legal in a lot of states. When this THCa is extracted and isolated into the crystal or diamond form, the final product also contains less than 0.3% THC and is federally legal according to the farm bill.
Will THCa Diamonds Get Me High?
You bet! THCa turns into THC when it’s heated (or decarboxylated, to use the scientific term). This means that when you smoke, vape, or make THCa into edibles (after baking/decarboxylating), the THCa will get activated and turn into THC. The result is basically exactly the same as “regular weed.”
How Strong is THCa Diamonds?
Since THCa turns into THC, THCa Diamonds are incredibly strong. 99% THCa is as potent as any extract could get, however, terpenes also play a role in the high, THCa diamonds are missing terpenes! But THCa diamonds are basically just as strong as regular dabs from a dispensary.
Most people say that THCa feels just like regular high-THC weed, so take it low and slow when you first try THCa until you know what to expect.
What Does THCa Feel Like?
Most people report that THCa feels just like real weed. When you try THCa for the first time, you can expect to feel a blend of euphoria and relaxation. You might find yourself giggling more than usual, and you might get hit with the munchies a couple of hours after you try THCa. Enjoy it!
Cannabis has a ton of potential health and wellness benefits that scientists have been researching for years. Because THCa turns into THC when it’s heated, THCa could have a lot of the same effects and benefits. We need to do more research to know for sure, though.
Is THCa Safe?
We need more research on most kinds of cannabis products, but when used responsibly by adults, THCa is just as safe as any other natural cannabinoid.
It’s also super important that you get your THCa flower from a trusted source. Make sure that the store you’re buying your THCa flower from has lab tests, COAs, and positive user reviews to back it up. Bay Smokes has all three!
Are THCa Diamonds Safe?
THCa diamonds are made up almost entirely of THCa. Make sure that the online smoke shop you’re buying your THCa diamonds from has lab tests and COAs listed on their website so you can be sure you’re buying safe, pure, and potent THCa diamonds.
Is THCa Psychoactive?
Technically, THCa pretty much only occurs in raw weed. Eating plain flower won’t get you high, but heating it up is a whole different story. Basically, THCa turns into THC, which is definitely a psychoactive cannabinoid.
Can THCa be Converted to THC?
Yes! And you don’t even need a lab or scientific know-how to do it. We bet you’ve already converted THCa in to THC without knowing it. THCa turns into THC when it’s heated up, or decarboxylated. This means that any time you’ve smoked, vaped, or baked with weed, you’ve been converting THCa into THC. You’re basically a chemist!
Can THCa Be Eaten?
Technically, sure. Just know that eating THCa won’t have much of an effect — you have to heat it up to activate it and turn the THCa into THC. This can be done by heating into an oil or butter also if you want to make edibles with THCa diamonds.
Can You Dab THCa Diamonds?
Yeah! THCa diamonds are perfect for dabbing THCa. They work just like regular dabs — just heat up your dab rig, take a rip, and sit back and relax.
Where is THCa Legal?
Right now, THCa is legal in a handful of states. As of March 2023, THCa is legal in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Weed laws are always changing, though, and we’re not lawyers. It’s always a good idea to check with your local laws just to make sure.

THCa is legal at the federal level. THCa flower is technically hemp flower. It contains an amount of delta-9 less than 0.3% by weight. The farm bill that outlaws marijuana specifically mentions delta-9, so THCa does not fall under the scope of that bill. Even though THCa turns into delta-9, most states do not include THCa in the measurement of delta-9.
YES. These products are all intoxicating. Each with different potency.
THCa converts into regular THC when heated. Normal dispensary flower contains mostly THCa, similar to the flower listed on our site.
Treat THCa flower from our website should be treated as normal flower. Medium to high potency flower with THCa content ranging from 15-30%.
We ship with USPS and their shipping speeds are typically 3-5 days. Your package will always leave our warehouse same day or next business day, if order is placed late or on weekend. We recommend just getting the free shipping that comes with $77+ orders as paying for expedited shipping doesn’t usually make a big difference. One thing to note is that USPS does not guarentee shipping speeds and sometimes is spotty with scanning in packages. But typically, once you have tracking from us, your package is in route and will be to you in 3-5 days! Be sure to add the shipping insurancce at checkout for immediate claims resolutions, Route is a life saver if USPS ever makes mistakes! Thanks in advance.
THCa is the acidic version of Delta-9 THC (which you likely know as the cannabinoid that causes the ‘high’ of traditional cannabis). As the plant grows, it produces THCa naturally, and when we smoke or heat up the THCa, it converts (decarboxylates) into Delta9 THC. However our THCa is derived from federally legal hemp, or the flower is grown under a hemp license and contains <0.3% Delta9. This means, the cannabinoid is federally legal, thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018.
Each state has their own laws relating to legality of hemp-derived products. It is your responsibility to know whether these products are safe in your respective state.

It is legal to ship THCa products for similar reasons to its federal legality. THCa is a hemp product which means it can be legally shipped through the United States Postal Service and other mail carrier services such as UPS and Fedex within the United States.
There is no federal regulation for the minimum age someone must be to purchase THCa Hemp products. State laws however do institute a minimum age of 18-21 to purchase smokable products. This will depend on your exact state, but the generally this age would be the same as the age to buy tobacco products in your state.
Even though THCa is derived from hemp and considered a hemp product legally, if smoked or heated, THCa converts to delta 9 THC and will show up positive on any kind of THC drug test. It is recommended to avoid consuming any hemp products if you expect to have a drug test.
THCa shares many of the positive effects of delta-9, however, it also shares some of the negative ones. Side effects can include dry mouth, paranoia, mild anxiety, dry eyes, and an increased heart rate. These effects will vary from person to person. The safest way to avoid any negative effects is to start with a minimal dosage and work your way up once you’re comfortable. If you are worried about potency, we suggest going for a less potent product, like CBD flower or delta8 vapes.
To be classified as a hemp product and remain legal, THCa Flower must contain less than 0.3% delta-9 THC per weight of the product. This does not restrict the THCa percent, which can be anywhere from 15-30%. calculating the decarboxylated weight, you multiply the THCa percent by 0.87.
This will vary depending on many factors such as: What experience are you looking to have? What prior experience do you have with delta-8 or delta-9? Individual factors such as weight and muscle mass can also impact how you will be affected. Best practices are to start with a low dose and work your way higher once you’ve identified how you will be affected.
The answer to this question varies based on individual factors as well as what method of consuming THCa you use. Inhalation will result in effects being presented in as little as a minute after consuming.
This is only for you to decide. The benefits of THCa are many with little risk attached. However, your personal medical history will impact your decision to consume THCa. If you are uncertain, you can always consult a medical professional before deciding to buy. THCa from hemp can be considered a similar or same product as flower from your local dispensary.
