What is THCa?
THCa is a cannabinoid that’s found naturally in hemp and marijuana plants. THCa turns into Delta-9 THC when you add heat. This process is also known as decarboxylation. You probably already know all about decarbing flower — it’s what you do when you smoke, vaporize, or make edibles.
That’s also why eating raw flower won’t get you high, but smoking it or baking it into brownies will. Raw flower is super high in THCa.
Will THCa Get Me High?
We know you’ve been waiting for this one — yes, THCa flower will get you high! It has less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, but a lot of THCa. THCa turns into D9 when you smoke it, use it in a vaporizer, or use it to make edibles.
