THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical found within marijuana
The substance is responsible for making users feel high or stoned. Illegal ‘street’ weed in 2022 is generally very high in THC, anything over 20% is considered high and some modern strains coming out of Amsterdam are in the high 20s!
THCa is a lesser-known compound of the cannabis plant, which is legal in the UK as opposed to THC which is a banned substance. THCa is basically a non-psychoactive form of THC but when a user heats THCa it degrades into the cannabinoid so loved by many but banned by the authorities. This gives THCa a unique position legally in the UK.
CBD has been legal in the UK for years now and remains very popular for a number of reasons. Users can take CBD in all manner of ways and to treat a host of physical and mental problems. For those suffering with Epilepsy or parents of children who suffer from this condition, THC provides a valuable respite but puts them in breach of UK law. This is where THCa fills a void.
Weed Supermarket has been supplying CBD products in the UK for over 4 years now gathering a large and loyal following. In the past 18 months we have bought THCa products to market.
There are still unfortunately a whole host of scam sites purporting to sell THC products online, our good friends over at High & Polite collaborated with us to produce a list of these sites which we maintain for the benefit of others, it can be found by clicking here.
THCa products for sale differ in form with solids, herbal tea and crystalline isolates available. The latter most suitable for children and those who prefer not to ingest using traditional methods. You can see a list of THCa products in stock on our website.
The Independent today published an article following a review of 20 studies with nearly 120k people and found that users of high THC cannabis products are more likely to develop addiction and psychosis. High THC Weed found on Britain’s streets can be very strong which poses a risk to those with pre-existing mental health conditions. A link to article can be found by clicking here.
So for those looking to get high legally THCa products provide a confusing option. With THCa degrading into THC when burned it is possible for a user to get high but by converting their THCa product they are in fact making it illegal. Confusing, yes, it is and it again highlights how out dated the UKs antiquated laws on Cannabis are.
