Cannabinoid Profile – THCA


What Is Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid?

You have heard of THC, but do you know about THCA? THCA is the main constituent in raw cannabis. THCA converts to D9-THC when burned, vaporized, or heated for a period of time at a certain temperature. THCA holds much of the anti-inflammatory properties, as well as anti-proliferative (inhibiting the cell-growth in tumors/ cancer cells,) as well as anti-spasmodic (suppresses muscle-spasms.)Take a look at what medical benefits THCA has and how it is synthesized in the cannabis plant!

    knowledge is power, I hope more and more studies into cannabinoids take place. Scientists only really find positive things about cannabis, and its the media’s job to squeeze every bit of negative out of it as much as they can. After all, positive doesn’t sell.

  2. The harper government stopped ALL cannabis research in 2006. They fought long and hard to close down Insite. The MMAR is so screwed up with them in court (wasting taxpayer dollars appealing judgements) so often it is sickening. If they put a tiny fraction of that effort in to making the program actually work…

     The one thing I know is this can not go on. 80% of Canadians favor cannabis law reform (not this backward,draconian regime we have now).
