THCa is a natural cannabinoid produced by both hemp and the cannabis plant. Although Delta 8 can be made from THCa, THCa is actually the acidic, or “live”, version of Delta 9 THC (Regular THC). Any weed you get from a dispensary or dealer is “THCa Flower” but in the hemp world, the Delta 9 THC levels are regulated. So the flower needs to be sold fresh.
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.

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.
