Technical name: Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid. This is raw cannabis. It is actually non-intoxicating when it's consumed (in its raw cannabis form) fresh, unheated, and uncured. Once it is altered by these methods it turns into THC. This is possible because the THCA molecule can’t fit into your brain’s cannabinoid receptors

Tincture -

The dictionary defines this as a medicine made by dissolving a drug in alcohol. In the CBD world, it is a dietary supplement in a liquid form that has a strong cannabidiol content. It is the same thing as CBD oil, the only difference is a tincture can only be consumed orally and can not be vaped. Tinctures will also not be psychoactive or won't alter brain processes.
