Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, or THCA, is the precursor to THC before it can be activated by decarboxylation (heat exposure). It is nonintoxicating when consumed raw and has been shown to have many health benefits. Resource cbddy.com
THCA is a strong antiemetic and anti-proliferative, a neuroprotectant, and has been shown to help prevent nausea and vomiting in people with cancer receiving chemotherapy treatments. It also reduces the risk of diabetes and has a variety of other benefits, including anti-epileptic and anti-anorexia effects.
A THCA tincture is a great way to enjoy the benefits of THCA, especially if you are looking for an easy-to-dose method that doesn’t require any smoking or vaping. THCA tinctures are available in many forms, including pre-made edibles, juicing extracts, and transdermal patches.

To make a THCA tincture at home, place NON-decarbed CBD flower in a mason jar with alcohol and store it in the freezer overnight. The next day, pour the tincture into a bottle and label it.
The tincture can be taken as needed throughout the day, or as desired. It is typically used for achy joints and muscles, as a immune system boost, and to improve sleep and gastrointestinal health with no psychoactive effects.
Unwind combines a full-spectrum THCA tincture with minimal activated THC in a ratio of 25:1 THCA:THC (exact ratios may vary slightly depending on decarboxylation percentage). A 0.5 ml dose underneath the tongue 3 times per day is recommended.
THCA tinctures can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 9 months, but after that time, THCtot losses were on the order of 5%. This is not good news if you want to enjoy your tincture for an extended period of time, as a consistent cannabinoid content cannot be guaranteed.
