As marijuana use in the US continues to be seen as less socially and legally taboo, both medical and recreational marijuana markets are being adjusted to further protect public health. Laboratory testing is increasingly becoming a requirement for marijuana or marijuana-infused product manufacturers, leading consumers into a retail environment where the potency of various plant compounds, known as cannabinoids, are represented in percentages. THCa and THC are the two cannabinoids most directly linked to the “high” users receive after smoking or otherwise heating raw or dried marijuana, but what is the difference?

To the law, there is a drastic difference between the two. It is important to know the legal and medical differences involved with these two sources of CBD, so we’ve put together a guide to help you navigate this tricky distinction.

If you're new to the marijuana world and you’re looking for a place to start, keep in mind that there are several factors that you should be aware of before you try your first puff. On the other hand, if you've consumed marijuana before, but you have a low tolerance, you should also educate yourself and tread lightly. Marijuana is a powerful, beneficial, and helpful plant that can deliver all sorts of physical, mental, and psychological relief. However, if you use a marijuana strain that's too strong or doesn't suit your specific needs and wants, then the experience could be disappointing and/or upsetting. Therefore, it's crucial to be aware of the marijuana strain you'll use and the content of CBD and THC within that strain, and it’s important to understand what you’re looking to get out of using marijuana.

The U.S. federal government continues to insist that marijuana is an unsafe, unhealthy, and dangerous illegal drug with zero medical worth with a high propensity for abuse. They still perpetuate this lie, despite the majority of states either considering or having already overturned its prohibition. The FDA ( Food and Drug Administration) lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug right along with heroin, cocaine, meth, LSD, and a host of other opiates, hallucinogens, and stimulants.

THCA and Its Medical Value

October 23, 2017

One of the leading arguments against the legalization of cannabis is that there is little supporting research of the plant itself. We constantly hear people compare cannabis to tobacco, in the sense that we may find harmful symptoms of smoking weed years down the road. With the spread of legalization, more and more research is being done that points to the opposite. In fact, as time passes, we are continuously finding remarkable medical benefits of weed. The more research that is being done, the more we discover new medical uses. The cannabis plant contains a variety of different cannabinoids that each have a medicinal value. The most commonly known cannabinoids are THC (which is psychoactive) and CBD (which is non-psychoactive). Most of the current medical research has been done on these two cannabinoids. However, we are now looking into another cannabinoid with extremely beneficial medical qualities: THCA.
