THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is the acid form of THC. This may seem like an insignificant point until you realize that without THCA, THC wouldn’t exist. THCA is the reason we heat cannabis products by various means—that decarboxylation process turns THCA into THC.

How Does THC Work?

THCA works much the same way other cannabinoids do—it’s consumed in one way or another and pushed into the body’s bloodstream and endocannabinoid system. While THC loves to bind with CB1 receptors, THCA is a little bigger, a little thicker, and doesn’t fit those receptors as well as THC. Because of this, it doesn’t cause any kind of intoxicating effects in its raw form, but it is possible that it could have other effects on the body. More work needs to be done before we can know for certain if THCA has any benefits.
