Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (in short: THCA) is a non-psychoactive ingredient of the cannabis plant.
Although THC and THCA may sound similar, THCA has completely different properties. First of all THCA is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis. In its properties it is closer to CBD than THC.
As the cannabis flower dries, THCA slowly converts to THC. Heat expedites this conversion in a process which is what happens when someone smokes the plant.
THCA is extracted from the raw cannabis plant, and it can’t be converted into THC when heated.
