What is THC-A?
THC-A is one of the hemp plants' many cannabinoids. Its structure is incredibly similar to Delta-9 THC, which is the primary psychoactive component in cannabis. However, THC-A doesn't have the same binding properties that Delta-9 THC does, creating different effects in the body.
THC-A is only mildly psychoactive. The cannabinoid has a higher therapeutic value than psychoactive value, making it incredibly appealing to those looking for relief and comfort. You’ll find THC-A in low amounts within both hemp and marijuana plants, but it’s best when extracted. Extracting THC-A allows consumers to better focus on and embrace the cannabinoid’s effects, as its natural levels are so low.
How is THC-A different from CBD and Delta-9 THC?
CBD, Delta-9 THC and THC-A are all compounds called cannabinoids that are found naturally in the hemp plant. CBD is non-intoxicating. Delta-9 THC (the common form of THC in marijuana) is intoxicating. THC-A has a structure that is slightly different than Delta-9 THC. THC-A may cause a cerebral euphoria and may cause some people to experience feelings of intoxication. Many report that the effects of THC-A products are more mild than similar Delta-9 THC products.

Can get you "high" off THC-A?
THC-A products may cause some people to experience feelings of intoxication and/or a cerebral euphoric effect. Many report that the effects of THC-A products are more mild than similar Delta-9 THC products.
Will I fail a drug test after taking THC-A?
While it’s legal through hemp, yes, you are still very likely to fail a drug test with THC-A in your system. However, it may not be for the reason that you think. Likewise, it depends on the type of drug test being used as well as other factors. The frequency of THC-A use, your metabolism and weight, gender, age, and more also play into it.
It’s important to understand how drug tests work when it comes to THC, though. Most people think the tests look for Delta-9 THC metabolites. Currently, most drug tests aren’t quite that advanced enough yet. Instead, drug tests look for THC metabolites rather than any specific cannabinoid.
Urine tests, for example, work to detect Delta-9 THC's primary inactive metabolite, also known as THC-COOH.
These metabolites can be detected after use, especially in the urine, because they’re stored in our fat cells.
