So, what is THCa? THCa, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is one of the major cannabinoids found in the cannabis, or hemp, plant. THCa is unlike other cannabinoids in that it doesn’t produce a psychotropic effect when ingested, but rather when heated through a process called decarboxylation. Decarboxylation, or “decarbing” for short, converts some of the available THCa to Delta-9-THC which produces the traditional “high” associated with marijuana. Delta-9 interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system similarly to other cannabinoids like Delta-8-THC, Delta-10-THC, Delta 6a10a THC, and HHC, to produce an uplifting, euphoric effect with increased focus and energy. Delta-9-THC is also known for its anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), antiemetic (anti-nausea), analgesic (pain relieving), orexigenic (appetite stimulant) and neuroprotective properties.
