Health Benefits of the THCA Flower
THCA flower may not be as widely known as CBD, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some incredible benefits. From potential therapeutic benefits to its primary role as the precursor to THC, THCA has gotten quite a bit of attention from the cannabis community.
What kind of gummies make you high?
Unlike CBD, thca flower doesn’t get you high when ingested raw. However, THCA can be converted to THC through smoking, vaping, dabbing, or cooking for edibles and concentrates. This conversion alters the molecular structure of THCA by removing a carboxyl ring that blocks it from interacting with CB1 receptors in our bodies and brains.
THCa has a range of health benefits that need to be further researched, but many patients report experiencing relief from pain and inflammation. This is due to THCA’s ability to inhibit prostaglandin production, which can help reduce inflammation in the body.
In addition, THCA is thought to have antiemetic properties, which can be helpful for those who experience nausea and vomiting from certain conditions or medications. Additionally, THCA is thought to have anti-proliferative effects that can help fight cancer.
Its euphoric effect is triggered by the heat of combustion when it’s smoked or vaporized. It’s typically rolled into blunts or joints, but it can also be decarboxylated to create concentrates and edibles.
When THCA is heated, it converts into THC which binds to CB1 receptors in the brain and body. This produces a euphoric sensation that can make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
