What is THCa Flower?

THCa Flower is essentially smokable cannabis with high THCa content, as much as 25%, but low THC, less than 0.3%.

THCa looks like hemp on paper but it works exactly the same as marijuana, which is illegal under federal law. This is because, once the users have lit and smoked the plant, the THCa in the flower will be converted into THC. Thus, the psychoactive effect.

Brands that have published safety, compliance, and quality tests are the best brands for consumers who wish to enjoy THCa’s mind-altering properties. THCa flowers are available from the following brands:

1. Flowering strains of THCa Hemp Company by VIIA Hemp Company

Retailers and distributors can purchase from VIIA Hemp Company a variety of THC flower strains that contain 23 to 25 THCa, and Delta-9 levels compliant with the law. This brand is known for its third-party testing and premium flower with aromatic terpenes.

2. BudPop THCa Flower

BudPop offers flower strains that contain 19-25% THCa, and Farm Bill compliant THC (below 0.3%). Brand claims to source premium hemp grown in the USA and test all flowers for compliance.

Other THCa products

Those who want to enjoy the therapeutic effects of THCa without being high, can add hemp or cannabis flowers to smoothies without heating them up or sprinkle ground flower on a salad. Raw THCa is also extracted and infused in oils, smoothies or green juices.


During the cooking process of most edibles, THCa is converted into THC. There are some exceptions, like cold-pressed drinks such as raw cannabis juice.
