With Our Dispensary Grade THCA Gummies
A new variant of Delta-9 THC has recently emerged on the market, boasting a closer relationship to its well-known counterpart than any other. THCa, standing as a direct precursor to Delta-9 THC, plays a pivotal role in the composition of cannabis. For instance, when you possess a cannabis flower bud with a 25% THC label, what you’re actually holding is predominantly 25% THCa. This compound undergoes a significant transformation upon heating, effectively converting into the familiar Delta-9 THC.If you’re curious about what THCa has to offer, one of the best ways to find out is to check out some of our THCa edible gummies and learn all you can about these products.
What are THCa Gummies?
THCa gummies are THCa-infused candies that offer all of the benefits of this cannabinoid in a convenient and flavorful package.
Aside from their great flavor and ease of use, some of the biggest advantages of these products are the discretion they allow, their high potency, and the fact that they come in a uniform serving size, so you can always make sure you’re taking the right amount.
What is THCa?
THCa is the cannabinoid that is most abundant in the cannabis plant. It’s the same chemical compound as Delta-9 THC, only with an added carboxylic acid group attached to it. When it’s heated, the acid group breaks off from the THCa, and it becomes Delta-9 THC. This process is called decarboxylation.
THCa is non-psychoactive, which means it does not have intoxicating effects. This is why you can’t simply eat cannabis flower and get high. It needs to go through the decarboxylation process first, which is why the plant is smoked or vaped.
THCa Gummies vs. THC Gummies
What exactly is the difference between the sticky THCa gummies and the regular THC gummies?
One of the most important differences is the vast majority of THC gummies are derived from the cannabis plant, while THCa gummies are derived from the hemp plant. This makes a big difference in how widely legal these products are.
Anything cannabis-derived is considered federally illegal, while hemp-derived products that contain no more than .3% Delta-9 THC are legal on the federal level. On top of that, cannabis-derived THC is less legal at the state level than hemp-derived THCa.
THCa Gummies vs. THCa Capsules
THCa capsules and THCa pills are pretty similar to THCa gummies. With all these products, the cannabinoid is absorbed through your digestive system, which comes with a more extended onset period but a prolonged experience.
Perhaps the most significant difference between gummies and THCa edible pills is that gummies are simply more enjoyable to consume. Rather than popping a pill, you’ll get a sweet gummy treat that can add to the experience.
THCa Gummies vs. THCa Flower
They may both be born from THCa seeds, but there are plenty of distinctions between THCa gummies edibles and THCa flower.
Obviously, the biggest one is that flower is smoked or vaped while gummies are eaten, but the difference there is not just about the mode of consumption. Absorbing THCa through your digestive system offers longer-lasting effects and an overall experience that’s distinctive from smoking or vaping flower.
How to Use THCa Gummies
Before jumping into things, take a look at the following tips for safely and effectively enjoying your sticky gummy THCa treats.
While it is safe to consume, there is a chance you could experience some unpleasant side effects by going overboard the first time you try THCa edibles. Those side effects can include dry mouth, drowsiness, paranoia, anxiety, and more. Avoiding these side effects is as simple as being thoughtful and cautious about your serving size.
Your best bet is always to follow the “start low and go slow” mantra, meaning you take a small amount, give it about 45 minutes to absorb into your body, and then take more if you see fit.
Storage and Shelf Life
If you’re planning on keeping your gummies for an extended period of time, you should make sure to store them safely to keep them away from pets and children and ensure they don’t degrade prematurely. Heat, humidity, light, and air can all have a negative effect on your gummies, so store them in a cool, dry, dark place using an airtight container.
Types of THCa Gummies
There are all kinds of THCa gummies to choose from, many of which are designed to emulate your favorite candies like peach rings, watermelon slices, and more. At The Hemp Doctor, you’ll find our Phuk’d Up 420mg THCa gummies, which come in five amazing flavors, all offering their own unique strain.
