Search Forums for Whole Word Matches - own3mall - 2020-05-27

Is there a way to search posts in forums via whole words only?

I have a forum that is used in many states, and threads are usually prefixed with two letter state codes like "CA, NY, TX". 

I was hoping there is a way to search for "CA" but only show threads and posts where "CA" is a standalone whole word?

Right now, things like:

candy
canada
cash

Will match the search for CA.
