THC-A Flower - Green House
High-THCA flower is cannabis flower that has been bred and prepared to contain high concentrations of THCA but low concentrations of delta 9 THC. This makes THCA flower very similar to THC flower — until smoked or otherwise decarboxylated, conventional THC flower also contains mostly THCA with just a small amount of detectable THC.
The key difference with THCA flower, though, is that THC levels have been specifically kept below 0.3%. Since THCA naturally converts into THC as it oxidizes, this also often means that THCA flower must be handled with greater care than conventional THC buds.
The primary difference between THCA flower and marijuana is the THC content. It doesn’t matter that THCA has the capacity to turn into THC — as long as the tested amount of THC in a cannabis flower product is below 0.3%, it is considered hemp, not marijuana.
Smoking provides sufficient heat to convert THCA into THC via a process called decarboxylation. As a result, THC flower and THCA flower have essentially the same effects even if they inhabit separate legal categories.
