With many myopathies, or diseases associated with muscle weakness, THC-A is helpful in restoring muscle energy and function, while being anti-spasmodic at the same time. This may seem contrary, but relaxed muscles with enhanced energy simply work more efficiently.
Two of the major effects of THC-A are:

With THC-A showing anti-spasmodic impact, could it be effective for treating urinary frequency?
What I've Discovered
I have noted for a number of years that 1:1 combinations of CBD:THC-A are very beneficial for urinary urgency, spasm and frequency. The anti-inflammatory benefits of THC-A, as well as CBD, should be of additional help for this and other conditions in which inflammation is an issue. The same formulation is actually showing some early promise for inflammatory bowel disease.
With relatively low doses of CBD:THC-A, patients have found that frequency and urgency generally substantially improve within a few days. However, as I have not yet had the chance to recommend treatment with THC-A alone, I welcome the opportunity.

It is clear that more trials are necessary to determine and evaluate its individual efficacy in this regard.
