What is THCA?
THCA is short for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, and is one of the major cannabinoids derived from the hemp plant. What separates THCA from other cannabinoids is that it only produces a psychotropic effect when heated through a process called decarboxylation or “decarbing” for short. “Decarbing” converts some of the available THCA to Delta 9 THC ultimately producing the traditional “high” associated with using marijuana.
When eating THCA it does not produce any intoxicating effect, however, THCA in this form activates your CB1 and CB2 receptors to be more bioavailable for the other cannabinoids. Essentially, in these gummies THCA creates a type of pathway for the Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC to intensify and produce a more effective high.
What is Delta 9?
Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is a cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant. Like many other cannabinoids, Delta 9 THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce a psychotropic effect.
What is Delta 8?
Delta 8 tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is a cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant. Delta 8 THC is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced naturally by the cannabis plant and is known to produce mild euphoria and relaxation. Many also report an overall sense of well-being because the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors involved are associated with homeostasis (the body’s natural resting state).
What is Live Resin?
Essentially, live resin is a cannabis concentrate extracted from freshly harvested marijuana plant material that’s been flash-frozen at sublevel temperatures, blasted with solvents, and pressed. This unique extraction technique is exactly what makes this concentrate so valued as it allows the terpene profile to stay as close to the natural fresh plant as possible, typically making it richer in aroma and flavor.
