What is THCA? What is High THCA Hemp Flower?

THCA is an abbreviation of Tetrahydrocannabinol Acid and is a precursor to THC. THCA is one of several forms of naturally occurring THC in live, living cannabis. During cultivation when THC forms on the plant it does so in its acidic form, THCA. THCA generally degrades into Delta 9 THC during the curing process, however, cold curing methods, or curing in cooler rooms, prevents this degradation and allows the flower to maintain high levels of THCA throughout the curing process.

When THC-A is heated is decarboxylates, or converts, into Delta 9 THC, the stuff that gets you high. So, what is high THCA Hemp Flower? Well, it is cannabis flower that is high in THCA but also low in Delta 9 THC, less than .3% Delta 9 THC, legally defining these buds as hemp flower. The effects are identical to high THC cannabis flower when smoked, vaped or cooked with.

It is worth noting that in legal marijuana markets most of the flower is high in THCA and low in Delta 9 THC. A lot of marijuana could legally be defined as hemp, provided that the levels of Delta 9 THC are measured at less than .3%.

What is the difference between THC and THCA?

THC and THCA have one major difference and one major similarity. The major difference is that THCA is not psychoactive, and will not get you high, unless it is decarboxylated, or heated. However, once THCA is decarboxylated, it will convert into Delta 9 THC, which does indeed provide intoxicating effects. Once THCA is decarboxylated it will be identical and the same cannabinoid as THC, that's where the similarities come in.

What does THCA Feel Like? Does THCA Get You High?

Without de-carbing THCA you won't feel much of an effect at all. THCA itself is non-psychoactive, meaning it has no effects on the brain like Delta 9 THC does. However, when heated THCA converts to Delta 9 THC, which in effect ‘activates’ the THC. Once activated, the effects of THCA are identical to Delta 9 THC. You can expect strong, potent and long lasting effects from THCa Hemp Flower. The benefits are THCA flower are very similar to the benefits of any hemp flower with the added euphoric effects. Cannabis flower is the best way to get all the benefits of cannabis in its raw form. 

With that said, it is important to start slow with THCA, or any THC product, until you know how these products will effect you. THC products are for adult use only and an age of 21+ is required for purchase and consumption.

Is THCA Hemp Flower Legal?

In short, yes. THCA is not an illegal drug, it is not covered by the Controlled Substance Act and is not defined as a prohibited cannabinoid in the 2018 Farm Bill. So, yeah, its legal. THCa is not a legal loophole either. In fact one of the most influential lawyers in hemp, Rod Kight, wrote an entire legal statement regarding THCa flower, clarifying a lot of the confusion that comes along with THCA Hemp flower while also calling it the next big thing in Hempland.

There is also a clarification statement made by the DEA which states that “material that is derived or extracted from the cannabis plant such as tissue culture and any other genetic material that has a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis meets the legal definition of “hemp” and is thus not controlled under the CSA.


In conclusion THCa flower could be considered the first chance for legal nationwide access to high THC cannabis flower. Until there are some changes in legislation or legal framework, there seems to be no reason that THCa Flower won’t remain a hot commodity in the Federally Compliant Cannabis Industry, or Hemp Industry. 

The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp, or cannabis with less .3% Delta 9 THC, an agricultural commodity no different than wheat, grain or soy. Hemp is not a controlled substance and does not fall under the controlled substance act. The sole criteria for differentiating legal, agricultural hemp from marijuana is the concentration of Delta 9 THC. The sole authority for post-harvested hemp is the Farm Bill, its definition of hemp specifically defines hemp in terms of its Delta-9 THC concentrations, and not total THC concentrations. THCa Flower is very likely here to stay.
