  • What is THCa hemp?
    THCa hemp is the name for federally legal cannabis (delta-9 THC levels that do not exceed 0.3% by dry weight), but which have high levels of THCa or; tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, a cannabinoid produced in abundance by the cannabis plant. THCa does not produce euphoria or have psychoactive effects; however, under certain conditions, including heat, exposure to light, and time, it can convert to delta-9 THC, which does have an intoxicating effect or "gets you high". The conversion from THCa to delta-9 THC, called decarboxylation occurs when THCa flower is heated above a certain point (230-250F).
  • Is THCa legal?
    Yes, THCa is legal in the United States, as long as it is derived from hemp plants with a THC content of 0.3% or less. 5 Dollar Joints sells only products that are compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill, meaning that all of our products are hemp-derived and contain 0.3% or less THC. However THCa is not legal in all 50 states. While it is legal in some states, others classify it as a controlled substance therefore we are forced to restrict certain areas during checkout. We advise you to check your local regulations before attempting to place an order if you are unsure.
  • Can THCa be shipped?
    Yes! THCa is legally classified as hemp and is able to be shipped across the United States, utulizing USPS. Certain state restrictions still apply so please check your local regulations. We have set up our shipping guide so that products we are aware can not be shipped will not complete an order to regulated areas, although rules & regulations change frequently and we certainly recommend being familiar with any cannabis laws that apply wherever you are.
  • Does THCa get users "high"?
    You bet! once it has been decarbed THCa acts on the same receptors in the body as the more familiar and tradition THC. Effects will very per user due to a number of factors but should be expected to closely mirror the known effects and sensations of marijuana use. Just without the legal headaches and worry.
  • Can I smoke THCa in public?
    Depends, this is going to be a state by state, city by city decision. We recommend always being aware of your surroundings and not openly inviting conflict so for that purpose its always best to avoid smoking any cannabis products in areas heavily populated with children, the elderly, or anyone else that might reasonably take offense.
  • How is this made? Is it natural or chemical based?
    THCa is a naturally occurring compound found in all cannabis plants. During the final stage of the flowering process the THCa is converted to THC through photosynthesis during the "white light" stage of the day. To prevent this conversion the plants are carefully monitored with enhanced nutrient and light schedules to ensure a healthy developed plant with little to no flowering stage photosynthesis. This process ensures a smooth terpene rich bud, legally classified as hemp, perfect for enjoying and getting the full spectrum benefits cannabis provides.
  • You sell mushrooms!? How is this legal??
    We sell a variety of mushroom treats from gummies and chocolate edibles to new age THCa + Mushroom Vapes. All mushroom extracts are Amanita Muscaria based, and therefore legal in most US states. We have shipping controls in place but strongly recommend you confirm legality in your area if you are unsure. ***All mushroom products are psilocybin free*** Amanita Muscaria is a psychotropic entheogenic mushroom that produces Muscimol, an alkaloid that is absorded through the blood stream and then distributed through the skeletal and muscular systems.
