Brand new Mimosa THCA hemp flower from Dr.Ganja! This tasty strain has a great citrus profile that comes off in both taste and smell and as a descendant of Purple Punch and Clementine, it’s no wonder why! Mimosa, which is also sometimes referred to as Purple Mimosa, is a well-balanced hybrid that has been said to be dose-dependent, which in this case translates to being uplifting and calming in smaller doses, and sleepy and relaxing at higher quantities. If you are one who enjoys getting the most out of your bud, try vaping Mimosa for her flavors as they are much more pronounced than with combusting her.
For those new to THCA or THCA hemp flower, THCA is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in all hemp and with bud such as this (with THCA as the main cannabinoid), it induces effects much stronger than CBD hemp or CBG hemp flower. Thus, those accustomed to traditional hemp flower should initially use with caution. If you’re interested more in the science behind THCA, check out our informational section below.
What is THCA?
You likely have heard of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid most commonly found in, and associated with, cannabis plants. But what about THCA? Is it related to THC somehow, and perhaps most importantly, does it have the same effects?
THCA, known fully as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is found naturally in hemp and cannabis plants. It is in fact very chemically similar to THC, with the “A” addition in THCA simply being an acidic group that essentially “falls off” when heat or light are applied to it. While this is an oversimplification, the “falling off” process of the acidic group is called decarboxylation, and it is through this process that the compound becomes active and has a psychoactive effect when consumed. Thus, THCA basically has the same effect as THC because for all intents and purposes after heating it or exposing it to light, it is THC.
If you consume THCA without heating it or exposing it to UV light (that is, you don’t decarboxylate it), it won’t have the psychoactive effects many are seeking because it has not been activated. So, if you are consuming THCA as an edible and are seeking a stone or buzz from it, it must be decarboxylated first which can be easily achieved in the oven. There are anecdotes of consumers feeling the psychoactive properties of THCA after ingesting it and NOT activating it, and an explanation of the stomach acid decarboxylating THCA into THC has been given, however this is not certain, so if you’re looking to get the most bang out of your buck recreationally it is still best to decarb through a heating source such as an oven.
THCA is the chemical precursor to THC and just like there is CBG there is also CBGA, and CBC and CBCA. These XXX-A precursors are basically the mother molecules that change into their active forms, XXX, when placed under the right conditions, in this case again, heat or light. Interestingly, much like these other cannabinoids such as CBGA, THCA has been shown in the research to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. It should be noted however, that these benefits are for its non-activated form of THCA and not THC! Once it is decarboxylated it does not retain all of these properties.
THCA is sold in many different forms from crystalline solids, to larger diamond nuggets, to isolate powders. As a cannabinoid concentrate, they can be used similarly and can be directly vaped, smoked, or dabbed, and are often used to top off bowls or joints to add an enhanced effect. It is important to note that if you are subject to random drug screenings or have a drug screening scheduled in the future, that you DO NOT consume THCA or THCA isolates.
The compound THCA sold on Dr.Ganja is legally derived from hemp and does not contain more than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume THCA.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Please do not operate a vehicle after consuming THCA products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
Clementine x Purple Punch
Mimosa’s appearance resembles her flavor: orange and lime green buds foreshadow her orange and citrus taste!
Typical hemp grass with floral and citrus notes and a small hint of grape.
Vape Mimosa if you want the best out of her flavor as there’s a great grapefruit and orange flavor that isn’t as pronounced as with combusting.
As a hybrid, Mimosa is a dose-dependent girl. In smaller quantities she functions more like a sativa with uplifting energy that is calm and steady, but in higher quantities she leans more on the indica side, causing consumers to feel at ease and quite a bit sleepy.
