Benefits of THCA: Available at Ark Smoke Shop

THC is the most well-known and researched cannabinoid today. But did you know that our beloved THC wouldn’t exist without its predecessor THCA? We at Ark Smoke Shop are going to break down “All About The Other THCs” on our blog. First…

What is THCA?

THCA is the acidic form of THC, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid and it is the precursor to THC tetrahydrocannabinol. The first cannabinoid the cannabis plant will develop as it grows is CBGA. CBGA is known as the “mother” of cannabinoids as it breaks down to create cannabinoids like THCA and CBDA.  Discovered in 1995 the scientific community has finally started to give the cannabinoid more attention.

THCA is abundant in cannabis and decarboxylates into THC when exposed to light and/or heat. One study found that “THCA decarboxylates to tetrahydrocannabinolic acid even when stored between 39-64ºF.

How to enjoy the benefits of THCA?

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid doesn’t give intoxicating effects if ingested, but cannabinoids affect individuals differently. Chemically, it has an additional molecular ring, which prevents it from binding to receptors in the brain responsible for feeling the ‘high’ effects that THC/smoking weed gives. This makes THCA legal by federal law as it is considered non-psychoactive and a great product stocked here at Ark Smoke Shop

It may not produce the same psychoactive properties or euphoria as Medical Marijuana, but emerging research suggests it still provides numerous advantages. Marijuana plants make more than 100 cannabinoids, which affect how smoking, vaping, eating, or topical use will feel.

To enjoy THCA you can buy vapes, like our Frozen Fields – THC-A Liquid Diamonds Disposables, cones like our White Runtz Pure Exotic Caviar THCA Cones, pre-rolls like our Puro Exotic THCA Diamond pre-rolls, edibles, raw flower, which we also stock, and consume in the way that suits you best.

To convert tetrahydrocannabinolic acid to psychoactive THC, one must heat it by:

Heat exposure via smoking or vaping
Room temperature exposure
Cooking for edibles
Sunlight exposure

Effects-wise, THCA and THC overlap in some areas. Both can help with nausea and vomiting, but tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is more promising for inflammation, seizures, and chronic pain. A 2017 study explored potential medical uses and applications for THCa and high THCa levels have been associated with neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory benefits in patients undergoing chemotherapy. 

The best method of consuming THCA depends entirely on the individual. Generally speaking, vaporizing THCa is a smokeless consumption method that will still produce a high. Eating tetrahydrocannabinolic acid infused edibles may be the healthiest method to ingest, especially when mixed with healthy superfoods or other beneficial cannabinoids like CBD or CBN. This is why Ark Smoke Shop is the Best place to buy THCA products that you can trust. We are excited about the potential of this underexamined compound in cannabis, a great alternative if you don’t wish to smoke medical cannabis.
