How Is THCA Legal?

Is THCA legal? This is one of the most common questions that we get here at Eagle Moon Hemp. The world of cannabis is constantly evolving, and there have been many significant developments in the last few years, particularly surrounding legalization in the USA. It can also be challenging to keep up with these developments as well as understand the difference between different cannabis-related products. With this in mind, this post will look specifically at THCA and its legal status here in the USA. The THCA market has exploded in recent years and is predicted to reach a value of an eye-watering $10 billion by 2026, so many people have an interest in THCA. Interested? Keep reading to find out more.

What is THCA?

What is THCA?

First, it is important to define exactly what THCA is. THCA is the non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. It is the precursor to THC, which is the psychoactive compound known to produce the feeling of being high. THCA becomes THC through a process called decarboxylation, which means applying heat – this could be smoking, vaping, or cooking THCA. It is helpful to imagine THCA as cookie dough and THC as the baked treat that you enjoy at the end.

Therefore, consuming THCA in its raw form does not produce the feeling of being high. This is the key distinction that affects the legal status of THCA and THC in the USA.

Why Do People Use THCA?

So, if THCA does not get you high, then why do people use it? THCA is becoming an increasingly popular product as it can provide a range of therapeutic benefits. Additionally, many people want to be able to experience the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without getting high (which is not always desirable or practical). 

THCA can provide pain relief, which makes it useful for those suffering from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or those with inflammation. THCA is also thought to have neuroprotective properties, meaning that it can help manage the symptoms of conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Due to its low THC content, THCA is generally not considered to have the recreational benefits of THC, but some users report that using THCA products can help with relaxation and stress relief (similar to CBD products).

There is a lot more research that needs to be done, but a staggering 91% of doctors believe that THCA should be legally available for medical use.

Is It Legal?

So, is THCA legal? It is important to note that the legal status of cannabis products is constantly changing and can vary between towns, cities, and states. Therefore, you should always research the current laws before purchasing any kind of product.

Generally, THCA is legal in the USA. This is because THCA has a THC content of 0.3% or less, which means that it is not on the controlled substances list and is legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, there are a handful of states where there are laws and regulations against THCA in place. These are:

  • Arkansas
  • Idaho
  • Hawaii
  • Minnesota
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island

Additionally, keep in mind that the legal status of THC is more complex. There are some states that have legalized cannabis both medically and recreationally, others only for medical purposes, and some where it remains illegal. Cannabis also remains illegal at a federal level as it is on the controlled substances list. This means that there are situations where state and federal laws do not align. Therefore, if you plan to buy THCA to smoke, vape, or cook, you need to be cautious and look up your local laws.

Will It Show Up On A Drug Test?

THCA might be legal in most places in the US in 2024, but you must consider your employer’s policies on cannabis products, particularly if you undergo drug testing. Generally speaking, standard drug tests do not look for THCA and instead will detect THC. Therefore, you should be ok with THCA products, but just make sure that they are THC-free before consuming them.

Additionally, you might want to check to ensure that the test is not looking for THCA and is not against your employer’s policies. Keep in mind that workplaces are becoming a lot more relaxed about products like THCA, CBD, and hemp, so it should not be an issue to bring up (provided that it is legal in your state).

Speaking to a healthcare professional if you have a preexisting health condition and take any medication is also important.
