Beautiful flower! Just to confirm, you’ve had legal entities give you confidence in the legality of this? My understanding is that THCa is an analogue of THC and is thus still considered a schedule 1 substance; the hemp bill dictated that total THC had to be under 0.3%, not just delta 9. However, I’ve seen people make similar arguments about the legality of delta 8, and have paid for no legal opinions myself, so I’m more interested in your opinion and really what the vibe of the industry is for hot/not hot flower.
For example, I could just take tail fractions from chromatography of un-decarb’d crude (would be hella easy with a silica column; could even do it with DCVC I’d imagine) and then crash out the THCa and have high purity hemp-derived THCa. Surely that’s not legal?..
