The Boutique THCA Flower at Bloomz, known as our Gold Line, promises the highest quality yet. For this new line of flower, we’ve employed a small-batch, artisanal approach to cultivating and processing our flower, which includes meticulous care offered to each and every plant during the vegetation and flowerings stages, for the most potent, flavorful, aromatic, and aesthetically pleasing buds you’ll find anywhere.
Bloomz hand-trimmed boutique THCA flower is grown indoors, where we can control every aspect of the environment to yield healthy, THCA-rich nugs that are ready for your enjoyment.
A Quick Refresher on THCA Hemp Flower
“THCA hemp flower” refers to the raw cannabis buds that have not been decarboxylated. These buds will contain a high concentration of THCA and lower levels of THC. Basically, THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis plants. As the cannabis plant matures, THCA slowly converts to THC, the primary psychoactive compound responsible for thar famous “high”. However, before the plant is exposed to heat, most of its THC content exists in the form of THCA.
A Brief Insight into Boutique THCA Hemp Flower
Boutique THCA flower isn’t a specific method for growing, but rather refers to small-batch cultivation, as a response to the fact that growing demand for cannabis has led to high-output cultivation facilities. Growers of boutique THCA flower grow small batches of plants at a time, which gives them the ability to meticulously care for each plant on an individual level. Boutique THCA flower isn’t grown under a specific, strict set of methods, but instead has these key advantages:
- Higher concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes (including THCA).
- More aromatic and flavorful.
- Larger, more attractive buds.
- Hand-trimmed for more precision.
Most boutique THCA flower is grown indoors, if not all, and is done through a series of methods that aim to bring the best qualities out of the flower buds. By nature, boutique flower is classified as “premium”, “top-shelf”, or “top-tier”, with all of these terms essentially meaning the same thing. Boutique THCA flower comes in the same strains as “standard” flower, but each strain is likely to give you more concentrated effects associated with the cultivar, again due to the higher presence of cannabinoids and terpenes.
What are the 3 Main Ways to Enjoy Boutique THCA Hemp Flower?
Naturally, boutique THCA hemp flower can be enjoyed just like “regular” flower, in that there are a number of ways to actually consume it. We’re going to look at the three main methods – smoking, vaping, and cooking/baking – and compare them.
Method #1: Smoking
Smoking is perhaps the most popular option of all for THCA flower, and the method that predates all of the others by far. Cannabis has been smoked for literally thousands of years, long before vaping technology developed, or before it was standard for people to make cannabutter with which to dose their favorite cookie and brownie recipes.
Smoking can be done in a few ways. It’s popular to place the buds in a pipe of some kind, whether it be a small one-hitter or a large bong that uses water filtration. Alternatively, you can roll the ground up THCA flower buds in papers, or even buy pre-rolls, which have done the grinding and rolling parts for you.
Pros of Smoking THCA Flower:
- The most potent method of all (smoking is the most bioavailable method as the lungs absorb the compounds efficiently, and the smoke carries a denser concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes than vapor).
- Fast-acting compared to other delivery methods (onset within minutes, like with vaping).
- Versatile (many ways to smoke, with a wide variety of pipes and papers available).
- The “old-school” method that many people favor is out of tradition.
Cons of Smoking THCA Flower:
- Causes the most respiratory effects (coughing, irritation, etc.).
- Not very travel-friendly (usually requires a grinder, papers/a pipe, and flower, stored separately, and requires that you have a space to roll your joint or pack your pipe).
- Can’t control the temperature that the THCA flower reaches, like you can with vapes.

Method #2: Vaping
Vaping is a relatively new method that involves the use of a dry herb vaporizer – in other words, a vaporizer made specifically for flower, as vaporizers made for vape oils will not work with flower.
THCA flower buds have to be ground, just like they do when you’re going to smoke them, but you can place them inside of a vaporizer chamber that receives heat from a battery, with a variety of presets (output levels) that alter how potent the vapor is, how much vapor is produced, how harsh the inhale is, how strong the flavor is, and more.
Vaporizers range in size and features, and you can buy anything from a very simple, pocket-friendly device to a desktop vaporizer that comes with loads of features and adjustable settings.
Pros of Vaping THCA Flower:
- Fast-acting and potent, as inhaling the compounds offers the highest level of bioavailability.
- Easy to customize in terms of output, airflow, etc.
- Lots of devices to choose from to accommodate different needs.
- More travel-friendly than smoking.
- Less harsh on the throat than smoking.
Cons of Vaping THCA Flower:
- Not as potent as smoking.
- Requires maintenance as devices need to be cared for.
- Can malfunction from time to time.
Method #3: Baking/Cooking
Finally, we have the third option, which is making edibles with THCA flower, for baking or cooking. This requires making THCA flower-infused butter, and then using that butter in place of the fat in a recipe.
This offers an entirely different delivery method from smoking or vaping, as you’re ingesting the cannabinoid rather than inhaling it, resulting in the production of 11-hydroxy THC – a cannabinoid metabolite that produces longer-lasting but more gradual effects, and can yield a stronger body high than other product types.
Pros of Baking/Cooking with THCA Flower:
- Longest-lasting effects (6-8 hours).
- A stronger body high.
- A way to enjoy a new hobby.
- No respiratory effects.
Cons of Baking/Cooking with THCA Flower:
- Longer onset time (up to 2 hours).
- Can produce drowsier effects.
- Requires basic culinary skills.
- Requires making an infused butter, which can take a couple of hours.
