Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (Delta-9-THCA)

Delta-9-THCA: The Precursor to THC with Potential Health Benefits

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (Delta-9-THCA or THCA) is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, THCA is a non-psychoactive compound that is found in raw, unheated cannabis. It is the precursor to THC and is converted to THC through a process known as decarboxylation, which occurs when cannabis is heated or smoked.
