Hemp, Cannabis, & CBD FAQ

Hemp, cannabis, CBD, marijuana – there is a lot to unpack when it comes to cannabis. Luck you, education is one of our favorite parts of this industry. If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers! Here are some commonly asked questions to curb your curiosity.

Yes! Every product we offer is federally legal thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. This legislation makes all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. flowerz products are all hemp-derived and contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. Note that hemp-derived cannabinoids are regulated differently by each state, and those laws are constantly changing. Do your legal due diligence to ensure you’re acting legally within your state or territory. The information on this page and website is for informational purposes only. It is not legal advice.

Cannabis is the whole plant. On one side you have hemp and on the other you have marijuana. In 1937, Congress made both hemp and marijuana illegal, and in 1970, they categorized both as Schedule I drugs. That was the case until 2018 when Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, in which hemp was legalized as long as it contained less than 0.3% THC. This makes hemp federally legal, which is why we can accept all forms of payment at our retail location, bank with FDIC-backed institutions, and we can ship legally across the nation.


Aside from its legal differences, there are some core differences between these two parts of the cannabis plant. 99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances and only a trace amount of THC. The  cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from the plant without the ‘high.’


In addition, hemp can be used for much more than relaxing or finding relief that comes from ingestibles. Hemp has over 50,000 uses. Anything made from cotton, soy, plastic, or wood, can be made from hemp materials. And because of its regenerative and carbon sequestrating properties, hemp can be an effective, natural climate solution. Marijuana has regenerative properties as well, but is limited on its industrial uses compared to hemp. Instead, marijuana’s main use is to ingest for recreational, spiritual, or medicinal reasons. 


Because technically both hemp and marijuana are cannabis, you may see the word “cannabis” used interchangeably with either. 

Yes! flowerz is setting the standard in the industry for testing, and all results are publicly available on our Lab Tests page. We always third-party lab test our products and run a “full panel test” which tests for more than THC level – ensuring there is no mold, toxins, or heavy metals in our products. We consistently offer the highest purities across the industry when it comes to minor cannabinoids.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are also found in many other plants. CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBD is a non-psychoactive compound used for the management of many ailments including anxiety, stress, insomnia, pain management, and inflammation – to name a few. People around the globe are finding new effective uses for CBD every day. CBD is typically extracted from CBD-rich hemp (cannabis sativa with less than 0.3% THC) to be included in a wide range of products from sublingual oils, tinctures, topicals, edibles and pet treats. CBD-rich smokable hemp flower and vape products are also popular methods of delivery.

The ECS (Endocannabinoid System) is a system that naturally exists within our body. “Endo”, is from “endogenous” (meaning it is naturally occurring within the human body); and “cannabinoid”, refers to cannabis-like substances. The ECS has three parts – (1) endocannabinoids (substances that interact with endocannabinoid receptors), (2) receptors throughout our bodies, and (3) enzymes that help process the cannabinoids and endocannabinoids. Our bodies naturally produce compounds, endocannabinoids, to interact with this system. Cannabinoids (found in cannabis and other plants) also make use of this system. The endocannabinoid system is part of our body’s functionality in charge of maintaining homeostasis. CB1 (helps to regulate appetite, memory, and pain) and CB2 (help to reduce inflammation) receptors are found throughout the body, including in our brain, digestive, and central nervous system.

Delta-9-THC (Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.  It interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and produces the characteristic “high” most often associated with consuming cannabis. Delta-9-THC interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS) by releasing dopamine into the brain. Delta-9-THC’s psychoactive properties can cause feelings of relaxation, and euphoria, and can improve the enjoyment of social activities. Delta-9-THC is also used for pain management, nausea, and appetite stimulation.

Delta-8-THC is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Like other cannabinoids, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system – specifically the CB1 receptor of the nervous system – to produce a psychotropic effect. Delta-8-THC interacts with the nervous system similarly to Delta-9-THC to produce feelings of euphoria and uplifted mood as well as feelings of calmness and relaxation. Delta-8-THC also has antiemetic (anti-nausea), anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), orexigenic (appetite stimulant), analgesic (pain relieving), and neuroprotective properties.

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They’re responsible for the aromas, flavors, and even colors associated with various types of vegetation. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others. They potentially work in synergy with cannabinoids and other cannabis plant compounds to produce psychoactive effects. Terpenes also provide a relaxing effect and might help to relieve pain. Terpenes are not cannabinoids. However, they come from the same section of the medicinal cannabis plant as cannabinoids and have the same effect on your endocannabinoid system.

High-THCa hemp flower is hemp flower that contains high concentrations of THCA. This type of hemp flower looks and smells just like THC marijuana, but it contains less than 0.3% delta-9 THC and is rich in THCa instead. Chemically different from delta-9 THC, the precursor compound THCa is generally considered to be hemp, allowing it to be sold throughout the US. Like other types of hemp flower, THCa flower is available in indica, sativa, and hybrid varieties.

THCa pre-rolls are pre-rolled hemp joints that contain high concentrations of the cannabinoid THCa. Convenient and easy to share, THCa pre-rolls save you the hassle of rolling your own joints. THCa pre-rolls vary in quality, so make sure to look out for organic options rolled in raw hemp paper.

THCa vapes are disposable vape cartridges containing extract that includes high concentrations of THCa. Usually containing 60-90% THCa, vapes are among the most potent types of THCa products you can buy online. The only acceptable ingredients in THCa vapes, however, are hemp flower extract and natural cannabis terpenes. If any other substances are present, your THCa vape may not be safe.

THCa gummies are edible gummy products that contain high concentrations of the precursor cannabinoid THCa. Like gummies containing CBD, delta 8, or any other cannabinoids that have recently become popular, THCA gummies come in a wide variety of different flavors, and they can contain many different ingredients. For the sake of your overall health, it’s important to choose THCa gummies that contain safe, natural ingredients.

It’s now possible to buy THCa online. Due to recent moves made by the DEA, it appears that THCa is considered to be hemp at the federal level, emboldening producers to bring this cannabinoid to the online market for the first time. If you want to buy THCa, start searching the internet for reputable sellers who have been in operation for a while and have accumulated plenty of customer reviews.

If you’re in the market for THCa hemp for sale but you’re operating on a tight budget, you might be able to get a deal on THCa smalls or kief. This type of low-grade material, however, is generally best-suited for extraction and should not be sold as smokable flower or pre-rolls. Often, it’s more economical to vape THCa rather than smoke it.

Yes, many THCa shops online offer THCa flower in wholesale quantities. Just like CBD or CBG flower, you can often buy THCa flower online by kilo or pound and have it shipped to your address in the United States. Pricing and quality vary significantly among wholesale THCa flower products, however, so make sure to do plenty of research before making a final decision.

If you’re wondering how much it costs to buy THCa hemp flower in bulk, you’ll find that prices are usually comparable with other types of hemp flower since THCa hemp is very abundant. You should expect to pay a premium, though, for any high-quality THCa buds for sale you might come across online.

Under the 2018 Farm Bill, cannabinoids other than delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are generally considered to be industrial hemp. This product category does not contain the controlled substance THC, but it does contain CBD, CBG, CBN, and yes — THCa. See here for a detailed, professional analysis of the current legal status of THCa.

The term “hemp-derived THCa” refers to THCa extracts and products that are derived from THCa-rich hemp, not THC-rich marijuana. Critically, this separation provides THCa manufacturers access to high-THCa plants, something that would otherwise be prohibited by federal law. For the average user, though, it doesn’t make much of a difference if their THCa is hemp-derived or not. Much more important is the quality of the THCa in question and the purity of its original plant material.

Yes, most experts believe that THCa is included under the US federal government’s definition of “industrial hemp” as specified by the 2018 Farm Bill. This interpretation is boosted by official signals from the DEA that it does not intend to consider THCa a marijuana product. Some analysts have looked to this development as an indication that the federal government is attempting to “shadow-legalize” certain forms of hemp or cannabis simply by not making enforcement a priority.

With THCa sale online now widely considered to be legal, this cannabinoid is now available from a variety of manufacturers who post their products online. As you search for the right THCa shop for your needs, keep in mind the shop’s age, its reputation, and the quality of the THCa products offered. For additional peace of mind before purchase, don’t hesitate to reach out to customer service.

Yes, THCa is psychoactive. When used with methods that involve the application of heat, THCa is just as psychoactive as THC since THCa converts (decarboxylates) into THC when heated. When orally ingested or used in other ways that don’t involve heat, the psychoactive effects of THCa are considerably reduced.

Compared to delta 8, THCa is the same thing as THC when vaped, not slightly different. Compared to CBD, THCa has powerful psychoactive properties while CBD is quite mild. Compared to THC, THCa is available online and in all 50 states while THC commerce is still highly restricted.

Yes, most users consider THCa to be stronger than delta 8 since THCa converts into THC while delta 8 is usually lower-potency in comparison. Some prefer the effects of delta 8 due to their decreased psychoactivity, but it can’t be denied that THCa is the stronger compound.

Most users prefer to vape or otherwise inhale THCa since this method offers rapid-acting effects. Some of the best ways to inhale THCa include using vapes and smoking flower.

Used in most ways, THCa has the same side effects as THC, which can include paranoia and dry mouth. If you use THCa without heating it, the compound’s side-effect profile is considerably reduced.

Yes, using THCa will result in a positive drug test for THCa for two reasons: Drug tests don’t differentiate between THC and THCa; and Most methods of using THCa convert the cannabinoid into THC anyway. So, using THCa should be avoided if you have a drug test coming up soon.
