This assignment teaches students about THCA, the acidic precursor to THC, the most common cannabinoid and also the most controversial based on its psychoactivity.

What is THCA?
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is the acidic precursor to the most infamous cannabinoid on earth, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is derived from the "mother of all cannabinoids," cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which also produces the important cannabinoids cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).
