Meet THCA: The Party Cannabinoid in ItsPurpl Gummies & Prerolls

Share if you care

Ready to party with ItsPurpl gummies and prerolls, but wondering what exactly THCA is? We got you! THCA or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is a cannabinoid compound found in raw cannabis plants. However, unlike ya boi THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THCA isn’t psychoactive in itself. It’s the precursor to THC and must undergo something called “decarboxylation,” which is a process typically triggered by heat, to convert into the psychoactive form of THC (cool, huh?). In its raw state, THCA can produce various wellness benefits, all without inducing intoxication. But, when cannabis is heated through smoking, vaping, or cooking, THCA loses a carboxyl group and becomes THC, resulting in those elevated effects we blazers love so much!

How Does THCA Work?

Ready for some psychotropic science, Space Rangers? THCA works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters involved in regulating various physiological processes. While THCA doesn’t directly bind to cannabinoid receptors in the same way THC does, it still has some influence over the ECS.

Research suggests that THCA may modulate the ECS by inhibiting certain enzymes responsible for breaking down endocannabinoids, such as anandamide (a naturally occurring acid derivative that acts as a messenger molecule). This reaction leads to increased levels of endocannabinoids in the body, which can impact basic human functions, like pain sensation, sleep, appetite, and more.

THCA may have its own direct effects on other receptors and pathways in the body, contributing to its potential therapeutic properties. But with that said, more research is needed to fully understand its specific mechanisms of action and how exactly THCA works.

THC vs. THCA vs. CBD: Know Your Cannabinoid

Now let’s get you acquainted with more aspects of our pal, the cannabis plant. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid), and CBD (cannabidiol) are all cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, each with unique characteristics and effects. 


THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, responsible for the euphoric “high” associated with marijuana use. The compound interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system, particularly the CB1 receptors, altering neurotransmitter release and leading to its lit effects. 


THCA is the precursor to THC and doesn’t produce psychoactive effects in its raw form. But when exposed to heat, the cannabis compound converts into THC through decarboxylation. Fans seek it out for its potential wellness benefits, as well as its awesome heat-me-up-and-I’ll-get-you-baked powers.


CBD, on the other hand, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid known for its potential therapeutic properties. Unlike the cannabis compound, THC, CBD doesn’t strongly bind to a cannabinoid receptor and also doesn’t produce any euphoric or elevated effects. Instead, it interacts with other receptors in the body, such as serotonin receptors, influencing various physiological processes. CBD has become pretty popular with those seeking alternative ways to treat various things like stress relief and management of minor aches and pains.

While THC, THCA, and CBD all share their differences, they also share some similarities. They are all cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant and interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, the complex network of receptors involved in regulating various physiological functions. Additionally, research suggests that they may possess overlapping therapeutic properties, such as pain relief and sleep.

How to Take THCA

So, now that we’ve covered a good amount about THCA, you might be wondering how you can take it. Much like its counterparts, CBD and THC, THCA can be consumed in a number of ultra-fun ways! 


THCA edibles are ingestible products infused with THCA and are typically made by mixing THCA-rich extracts or tinctures into edible items, like THCA gummies, chocolates, baked goods, or beverages. So, how does this work, in terms of getting you baked? You read above how THCA needs to be heated in order to convert to THC … but you don’t heat gummies, right? Never fear, Party People. When you take a THC-A edible, like ItsPurpl Purple Punch Gummies, you benefit from the gummy’s manufacturing process. Yes, all that gummy goodness gets heated up before we pop those chews out—which means, all that wonderful THCA converts into a potent purple mind-melter. In short, you’re gonna love the effects of ItsPurpl Purple Punch THCA Gummies!


THCA flower is essentially your typical cannabis flower, but with high levels of THCA. Like we said earlier, THCA doesn’t produce intoxicating effects in its raw form and requires heat to convert into THC through a process called decarboxylation. THCA-rich flower, like that found in ItsPurpl Granddaddy Purple THCA Prerolls, is a pur-fect (get it?) choice for THC-aficionados, who want an extra boost of elevated effects!

Effects of THCA

As with all THC- and hemp-related products, it’s important to note that the effects of consuming THCA may vary depending on a number of factors like dosage, your own metabolism, and your overall health and wellbeing. With any cannabis product, it’s smart to start with a low dose and gradually increase as needed while monitoring its effects on your body.

Like other THC products, THCA products hit you differently depending on what kind of product you take. In general, edibles take longer to kick in (because they have to travel through your digestive system before being absorbed), but their effects last much longer. Vapes and prerolls kick in within minutes, because the THCA is absorbed through the lining of the lungs. Their effects, though, wear off much faster than edibles. 

Here’s a handy chart on the effects of THCA edibles and prerolls.

Get to Know Your Endocannabinoid System

Like we mentioned earlier, the ECS serves as a vital cell-signaling system in the body, responsible for regulating and maintaining various physiological functions. Think of it as your body’s internal regulator, making sure that everything runs smoothly. Emerging research suggests that the ECS could be a promising target for therapeutic interventions in conditions like appetite regulation, energy balance, and blood pressure control. THCA can play a significant role in the intricacies of the system. While the chemical composition of THCA involves carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms arranged in a specific molecular structure, its interactions with the ECS and potential therapeutic effects are still being explored (as are the effects of THC and CBD).
