You have questions about THCa flower. We have answers. The more you know about this cannabinoid everyone seems to be talking about now, the more divine your cannabis experience is. Here is some pertinent information about THCa flower.
Many people have already discovered THCa flower and enjoy it regularly. If you aren’t among those people, there is still time for you to join the popular crowd and indulge. THCa flower is the next best thing to Delta 9 THC and may possibly be your perfect companion.
THCa stands for Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It’s the precursor to Delta 9 THC. Through a process known as decarboxylation, carboxylic acids found in the cannabinoid convert to acidic form. In other words, when heat is applied to THCa, it converts into THC and users experience nearly similar mental effects. THCa products include concentrates and flower.
Since THCa flower is relatively new to the cannabis world, plenty of misinformation is out there.

In this Q&A section you’ll find factual information regarding THCa flower. We do not just assume the information is correct. It is confirmed by a world famous cannabis attorney. Nothing matters more to us than safeguarding our customers (and providing quality cannabis products, of course) and this is one small way we achieve those measures.
This Q&A section contains common questions asked by consumers curious to learn about THCa flower and its pros, cons, benefits, and perks. While there is still so much more to learn about THCa, this guide provides an excellent starting point with answers to the most important questions.
THCa flower is product that resembles traditional cannabis but has less than .3% Delta 9 THC. It is the same great flower cannabis enthusiasts have enjoyed for years, minus the Delta 9 THC. The beautifully produced phytocannabinoid product tastes great and converts to Delta 9 THC when heated, giving an out-of-this-world euphoria very similar to the real product.
Traditionally smoked in a pipe, bong, bowl, into joints or blunts, THCa flower also makes a great addition to edibles like brownies and cookies; can be vaped on the go, and works wonders when made into topicals. THCa flower offers the same uses and benefits as traditional THC flower.
The effects may not be as intense or as long-lasting as those enjoyed after consuming real cannabis, but certainly do wonders for users. The amount of light exposure and heat used on THCa affects the intensity of its effects. Just as different cannabis strains produce different effects, so does THCa flower. Some strains are better than others, depending on what you like and the effects you want, as you might expect.
THCa flower is strain-specific, the same as traditional Delta 9 THC/cannabis flower. As you browse the wide selection of THCa flower available, you’ll discover strain names you’re very familiar with along with plenty of new names.
Everyone has heard names like Gorilla Glue, Grandaddy Purp, and Green Crack. Most cannabis consumers enjoy the strains and trust the effects it brings. You can find each strain available in THCa form.
You can also find many lesser-known strains available. Shockwave and Tsunami are two strains that whale not as popular as the aforementioned names, will soon become your favorites.
THCa flower is an excellent alternative to traditional Delta 9 THC flower.
Cannabis laws differ in every state and confuse many people simply wanting to find out if they can legally consume products. Not to worry because we took time to ask a cannabis attorney about the legality of THCa. You can check out the full report here and rest assured you are getting the most accurate information possible from us.
We are proud to report that THCa is legal under federal law in all 50 states. It is not classified as a psychoactive cannabinoid or as a scheduled substance.
Anyone, anywhere in the U.S. can legally purchase and consume THCa flower and other THCa products without concern. While cannabis may not yet be legal in your state, THCa certainly is an awesome legal alternative.
If you still aren’t convinced that THCa is legal in your state, reach out to a local lawyer who will help you understand your local state laws. You can also learn information about THCa via the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) website. Every product sold on the Arete website is 100% federally legal.
The burning question you were afraid to ask but dying to know!
Will THCa get me high? If the cannabis product does not get you high, what is the point of consuming it, right? Wrong!
THCa itself will not get you high. Remember, we told you earlier that this cannabis product is not a psychoactive cannabinoid? For that reason, it is impossible to get high from THCa. All hope is not lost, however, and there is still a good reason why you want this product on hand.
That awesome decarb process we talked about earlier converts THCa to THC. So while you do not feel the same exact euphoria as you would after ingesting THC, the results are pretty intoxicating and enjoyable.
Since THCa is legal across the country, it’s an awesome legal alternative for those who live in states without cannabis laws who fear collecting a criminal record or time behind bars. It works great for people who may not yet be ready to experience the real thing for various reasons. Cannabis excites yet scares many people. THCa is there to guide those individuals.
Heat is the only thing needed to decarb THCa and experience its full potential. Although you may see producers tossing THCa into an oven to bake, you don’t need to endure this process to complete the conversion. Simply lighting THCa when it is packed into a bowl or dab can convert it and provide the powerful effects you’re after.
Raw THCa can also provide plenty of benefits. Some people use THCa in raw form, in concentrated form, and in flower form to ensure they never miss benefits. It is commonly added to smoothies and other nutritional drinks. It tastes great before it goes through the decarb process and could very well be a great way to benefit your good health.
So while THCa itself does not create psychoactive, mind-altering effects, the conversion process certainly allows this to happen. You can expect to enjoy every experience using THCa products.
A solid, crystalline form of THCa, THCa Diamonds are the most potent version of the cannabinoid available. We are proud to offer this extremely powerful product to our customers.
Offering 99.9% pure THCa, Diamonds are produced with a concentrate called ‘sauce.’ It’s made through a process that adds then removes solvents to cannabis, producing a concentrated form of the cannabinoid.
To create Diamonds, the sauce is put through an appropriately-named process known as diamond mining. Through the mining process, the THCa creates crystalline structures similar in appearance to diamonds.
Diamonds are easily consumed through vaping, smoking, or dabbing. As long as Diamonds are heated, the product will convert to THC and produce the desired mind-altering euphoric effects.
Another way to consume Diamonds is by crushing up the THCa crystallines and adding a small amount to the top of your THCa hemp flower (in a bowl, joint, etc.) before lighting. The already great effects of THCa hemp flower intensify with the added treat added to the top.
We create our THCa Diamonds using a strenuous process that removes chemicals and other impurities that are harmful to the human body and impact the overall quality of the product. Arete THCa Diamonds is one of the cleanest, purest products available on the market. We do not accept anything less -and neither should you.
Everyone should try THCa Diamonds at least once. We believe the product will easily become your #1 favorite THCa product and a regular part of your life.
There is THCa and then there is High THCa, essentially the same product, only one contains higher percentages of the cannabinoid you crave. In fact, some High THCa products contain such a strong amount of THCa, they could easily pass as real cannabis in a dispensary.
High THCa products contain 1% or more THCa, an absolutely amazing level of cannabinoid. When converted to THC, those psychoactive effects you want immediately take you to that mind-altering world you feel most comfortable. High THCa products definitely are not designed for the faint at heart.
Choose from High THCa concentrates and flower for your cannabis consumption experience. Purchase both concentrate and flower High THCa since both offer different effects and intensity levels. Keep one on hand to enjoy during lunch break at work and the other for after-work fun.
Experience High THCa first hand to learn what all the fuss is about -if you dare. Cannabis enthusiasts absolutely love High THCa products, but they provide next-level euphoria that you should prepare for.
In 37 states, cannabis is legal for medicinal purposes. In 21 states, recreational cannabis is legal for consumers 21+. Despite state legalizations, cannabis remains federally illegal.
Many companies and federal organizations follow federal regulations regarding cannabis consumption (and possession.) What this means is that despite state legality, consuming cannabis can cause a variety of problems. For example, companies that drug test new employees may turn down an employee who tests positive for marijuana, despite its legal status in the state.
Failing a drug test at a company or organization in states without legal marijuana laws can result in the same hassles.
It is apparent why potentially failing a drug test is bad news to so many people across the country, whether they need to pass due to requirements at their workplace or other reasons. Failing a drug test after using THCa would make matters even worse.
It goes without saying you want to know if THCa can make you fail a drug test. It is better to be safe than sorry, right? The answer, sadly, is that yes, THCa has the potential to cause you to fail a drug test. Consuming the cannabinoid should not result in a failed drug test since it is not psychoactive but the risk remains.
Although THCa from Arete complies with all federal guidelines requiring 0.3 percent or less Delta-9 THC, the decarboxylation process may very well change the percentages which could result in a failed drug test.
It is best that anyone anticipating a drug test in the near future ( 30 to 60 days) avoid THCa because the potential to show a positive result for cannabis is there. Keep in mind other cannabis products from Arete may produce similar effects without the risks of a positive drug test. Browse our website carefully so as not to miss out on any of the exciting cannabis products available.

If THCa converts to THC, doesn’t this make the two cannabinoids practically identical? THC and THCa share many similar qualities as well as many distinct qualities. Want to know the differences between the two?
THCa is called tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It is the inactive cannabinoid found in the trichomes of live and freshly harvested cannabis. An inactive compound is not purposeless, however.
THC is a psychotropic version of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. THC generally cannot be found in live or freshly harvested cannabis. THC binds with CB1 receptors in the brain which causes users to feel “high.”
THCa has an extra carboxyl group not found in THC which makes binding with CB1 or CB2 receptors impossible due to an odd shape that makes it impossible to fit inside the receptor. This makes it impossible to experience the psychoactive effects created by THC that get you high.
THCa is essentially THC that has yet to undergo the decarb process. To convert THCa into THC, one must complete the decarboxylation process which removes that extra carboxyl group so that it fits inside those CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Decarbing THCa is pretty simple and does not require any tools. Heating the THCa product can be done in several ways, including through direct sunlight exposure, increased room temperatures, and direct heat exposure when smoking or vaping. Sunlight exposure is the most time-consuming decarb process while direct heat during consumption is the most common.
