What Is THCA & What Are The Benefits Of This Cannabinoid
It is likely you will have come across the acronym THCA. What actually is THCA? Well, it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which is dried and heated to convert to TCH. The isolates of TCHA are formed by processing it through a refinement process to remove any impurities and then leave behind a fine powder. A heated and refined TCHA converted to TCH has a powerful potency of between 95% and 100%.
There are great potential medicinal benefits for THCA helping patients with several different medical conditions. The TCHA can be ingested without heating and without a psychoactive effect. The research on TCHA has revealed medicinal properties such as:
- Anti-inflammatory- for treating arthritis and lupus
- Neuro-Protective- to cure neurodegenerative diseases
- Anti-emetic- to avoid nausea and appetite loss
- Anti-Proliferative- for treating prostate cancer
Taking the Neuro-Protective properties of THCA for example, these properties help a patient with symptoms associated with neurodegenerative disorders, like Parkinson’s disease, and those who have dementia.
The anti-emetic THCA properties help people who suffer from symptoms associated with stomach issues that might result in severe nausea or loss of appetite. Moreover, THCA is also believed to have strong anti-proliferative properties that slow down the process of some severe diseases like cancer.
All these possible benefits of THCA need extensive research and cannot be ignored. If THCA is given proper attention, it could have more hidden long-lasting benefits than are currently not known and understood by us.
THCA has other medical benefits attached to it such as helping to treat insomnia, muscle spasms, and relieving pain.
Every strain that has a high THC concentration that has not yet been decarboxylated contains THCA. These cannabinoid levels are usually very high when the cannabis plant is live or freshly harvested. For this reason, this is why raw cannabis is usually juiced to unleash the benefits of THCA. Have you tried juicing cannabis before?
