Frequently Asked Questions


What is THCa
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, known for its potential medicinal properties. When heated, THCA converts into another cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or delta-9 THC, which is renowned for its psychoactive effects. Both marijuana and hemp belong to the cannabis species, with THCA primarily present in the flowers of cannabis plants. Fresh cannabis plants, especially raw buds, tend to have higher concentrations of THCA compared to dried plants. THCA has garnered attention for its psychoactive effects, as it can be converted into THC through heating. This process is particularly relevant for individuals who seek euphoria but have limited access to marijuana due to legal restrictions. Hemp, which contains THCA, is often utilized for this purpose since it falls outside the stringent regulations imposed on marijuana. The key distinction between marijuana and hemp lies in their THC content. Hemp is legally defined as containing less than 0.3% THC, whereas marijuana typically contains higher levels. While hemp lacks sufficient THC to induce intoxication, it still contains trace amounts of the compound.
Will this show up on a drug test?
THCA may or may not register on drug tests, depending on the specific test utilized. Typically, drug screenings do not target raw cannabis consumption in the form of THCA, as it is neither illicit nor psychoactive. However, it's crucial to recognize that heating converts THCA into THC, the psychoactive component. As the body metabolizes THC into THC metabolites (THC-COOH), the origin of THCA, whether from legitimate hemp sources or not, becomes irrelevant. Consequently, a THC-specific drug test could yield positive results following this conversion. In rare cases, certain drug tests might yield false positives. This can occur due to similarities in the structures of cannabinoid metabolites, leading to cross-reactivity with the test and potentially inaccurate results.
Is THCa legal?
THC-A is legal according to federal law. Federal law states that hemp products can contain a maximum of 0.3% delta 9 THC to be sold legally. But, there’s nothing in the law about THC-A. Keep in mind that some states are beginning to ban products with more than 0.3% THC-A as well, so stay on top of your state’s laws, as Crazy House will not ship THC-A to states where the cannabinoid is banned.
