THC-A, or tetrahydrocannabinol acid, is a cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant that can be consumed for various medicinal uses. In this blog post, we’ll explore what exactly THC-A is and some of the different methods available for consuming it safely and effectively. We’ll also provide tips on how to choose the right method based on your individual needs so that you get the maximum benefit from its beneficial effects!

What Is THCA?

Before delving into how THCA can be consumed, it would be a good idea to talk about what THCA is. As you might have guessed, THCA is the acidic form of THC. You could think of THCA as one of the original cannabinoids that is created by the cannabis plant. Basically, what this means is, before THC is created or developed, a cannabinoid called CBGA develops. CGBA then breaks down into two primary cannabinoids, namely CBDA and THCA.

The next thing that you need to understand is that there is a slight misconception as to what THCA actually is. Many people are under the impression that THCA is non-psychoactive and doesn’t contain any intoxicating properties. While this is technically true, it does if it is exposed to heat. What does this mean? This means that when THCA is exposed to heat, it converts to THC, and only then can you experience all of the benefits that come along with it, such as pain relief or anti-nausea treatment.

Dab Rigs

Now that you have a better idea of what THCA is, it’s time to take a look at the different methods that can be used to consume it. One of the newer consumption methods on this list is dab rigs. Upon first glance, a dab rig looks remarkably similar to a bong, and functions in a similar way. The biggest difference, however, between a dab rig and a bong is the fact that a dab rig requires concentration or shatter. However, in this case, you are going to need to use THCA diamonds, otherwise known as dab diamonds. There are many potent THCA diamonds and dabs on the market, which are sure to captivate you. Just make sure you buy from a reputable brand known for customer loyalty and third-lab-tested products.

Dry Herb Vaporizers

One of the most popular methods to consume THCA on this list is through a dry herb vaporizer. These devices have become popular because they don’t use combustion as a heating method. Instead, they heat the cannabis to the point of vaporization and, in this case, THCA. Of course, you will need to use the dried herb for this method, or, in other words, the dried herb.


The next method that can be used to consume THCA would be bongs, which also just happened to be one of the most iconic cannabis consumption methods. A bong has a beaker-like appearance and is filled with water, which acts as a filtration system. Again, with this consumption method, you will need to use a flower, which is placed in a bowl and then heated with a lighter.


Another iconic consumption method that most people will be aware of is joint consumption. Joints are also referred to as cannabis cigarettes and are very convenient and cheap. All you would need to create a THCA joint would be cigarette rolling paper and a THCA flower. Once the flower has been ground, it is placed in the middle of a sheet of rolling paper and then rolled up.

One Hitters

Finally, the last consumption method on this list that you can use to consume THCA would be the one-hitter. As the name would suggest, this consumption method requires you to consume the entire bowl in one hit. If that sounds intimidating, there is no need to worry, considering that a one-hitter is essentially a set of mini pipes and the bowls are very small.


As you can see, there are quite a few ways that you can consume THCA. However, if there is one thing that you should take away from this article, it’s the fact that THCA will only provide benefits and have an intoxicating effect if it is exposed to heat. If you see something called a THCA edible, this is just a regular edible with THC.
