THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw cannabis plants. It is the precursor to THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. THCA is converted to THC through a process called decarboxylation, which occurs when the plant material is exposed to heat. THCA is known for its potential therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. However, it is important to note that THCA on its own does not produce the same intoxicating effects as THC. Research on THCA is still ongoing, and its full potential for medical applications is yet to be fully understood.
