All About THCa: The 7 Things You Have to Know

So, THCa. It's a big deal. And we are so excited to finally be bringing you high quality, THCa packed hemp flower at the Hemp Farmacy. Our house flower brand, Legacy Farms, has been carrying top notch buds for years, and just took it to the next level with a full range of amazing THCa strains.

However, you might be asking... is THCa synthetic? Is THCa safe? Why is it a big deal? We're all about providing hemp education in our stores, but if you're surfing online, it might be hard to find answers.

So, let's dig in:

What is THCa Flower?

THCa flower refers to federally legal hemp flower that contains high amounts of THCa and less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. Cannabis plants naturally produce high amounts of THCa, which is a cannabinoid found in freshly harvested cannabis flowers.


What's the difference between THCa and Delta 9 THC?

Very little, but a lot at the same time. THCa (Tetrahydrocannabinol acid) is the precursor to Delta 9 THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Delta 9 THC wouldn’t naturally exist without THCa. Delta 9 THC is the active (psychotropic) version of the same cannabinoid.

Is THCA Flower legal in NC?

Yes, as long as the product contains less than 0.3% THC, THCa flower is federally legal. All of our products are 3rd Party Lab Tested and come with Lab Reports that contain potency results, detailing the exact amount of Delta 9 THC in our flower.


Why Believe The Hype?

THCa flower has been gaining popularity recently as the best, most natural smokeable flower alternative to Delta 9 THC, while providing similar effects and being federally compliant.


Is it Natural?

A lot of people believe that THCa is made in a lab with test tubes. In reality THCa (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant. The only difference is that It is the precursor to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis.  

THCa in its raw form is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has a range of potential health benefits on its own. But when exposed to heat, THCa actually goes through a process called decarboxylation which then converts it to it's non-acidic form, Delta 9 THC.
