What Is THCa Flower?
THCa Flower is a hemp flower rich in THCa or Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid. This cannabinoid is the precursor to Delta-9 THC (D9, D9 THC, or THC), the iconic, world-famous cannabinoid known for its uplifting cerebral effects & physical relaxation. When you apply heat to THCa Flower, the THCa turns into Delta-9 THC, giving hemp lovers what they’ve been missing from traditional hemp flower and a way to enjoy the numerous benefits of THC.
How Do I Use THCa Hemp Flower?
There are a few different ways to use THCa Hemp. You can consume THCa Hemp Flower “raw,” meaning without heating it, or it can also be “cooked” by smoking or vaping it using a dry herb vaporizer. Consuming THCa without heating does not produce the mentally stimulating effects we associate with Delta-9 THC. Instead, raw THCa can offer some wellness benefits and help with focus and concentration. Examples of consuming THCa Hemp in its natural form include infusing it into oils or dressings, adding it to a green juice or smoothie, or sprinkling some freshly ground flower over a cold salad!
The more well-known way to use THCa Hemp Flower is by smoking or vaping it for mood-elevating and physically relaxing benefits. You can also cook with THCa Flower to create dishes and confections to deliver an even more potent THC experience.

Is THCa Hemp Flower legal?
Yes, our THCa hemp flower is 100% federally legal and Farm Bill-compliant. The Farm Bill is a federal law that permits all hemp products containing no more than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. All our THCa Hemp Flower meets these strict requirements and are independently lab tested to verify the THCa content.
Will THCa Get Me High?
If you smoke, vape, or cook THCa, you will feel an invigorating cerebral effect and deep physical relaxation. If you wish to consume THCa without these benefits, you can consume the raw plant material in a juice, salad, or smoothie.
What Is Considered “High Level” THCa?
It all depends on your individual preference, as everyone has different levels of comfort with the sensations of THC. Generally speaking, THCa percentages of 15-20% are considered a high level of THCa. Anything above 20% THCa is typically seen as a very high level of THCa.
What Are The Benefits Of THCa?
THCa has several benefits, depending on how you choose to enjoy it! The “raw” benefits of THCa show some exciting potential for helping with overall wellness and maintaining normal bodily functions. When you “cook” THCa by heating it and converting it into D9 THC, you can enjoy creative stimulation and physical relief!
What Is The Difference Between THCa and THC?
Although THCa and THC have similar molecular structures, they create different effects when consumed. THCa does not create an uplifting or euphoric effect if you ingest it without heating it, whereas THC generally does.
Will THCa Show Up On A Drug Test?
Unfortunately, smoking or vaping THCa will probably show up on a drug test, as THCa converts to Delta-9 THC when heated. Remember: drug tests typically check for the presence of THC. So when you smoke or vape THCa Flower, THC enters your bloodstream and will probably result in a THC-positive drug test. If you expect to take a drug test soon, we suggest avoiding THCa Flower for now.
