The main difference between THCA and THC is that THCA doesn’t make you feel high like THC does. But to turn THCA into THC, you need heat. You can do this by smoking, vaping, dabbing, or cooking with it. This process changes the THCA’s structure by removing something called a carboxyl ring. This change helps THC work with CB1 receptors in our bodies, which leads to the high feeling.

THCA vs. THC: The Effects

THCA and THC have some similar effects. They can both help with nausea, but THCA seems better for fighting inflammation. On the other hand, since THCA doesn’t make you high, it might not work as well for sleep as THC does. And while THC isn’t usually recommended for seizures, there’s a chance that THCA could be helpful.
