Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is an inactive compound found in the trichomes of living cannabis plants. THCA doesn’t get one “high,” although it is the precursor to THC, which it becomes through a process called decarboxylation.A pre-cursor to THC. THCA doesn’t get you high until it gets enough heat/time to convert into THC. The smoking process gets weed hot enough to instantly convert THCA to THC, but for edibles, weed has to be decarbed to convert the THCA.
