Cannabidiol acid, known as CBDA, is considered a “minor” cannabinoid even though it is technically not a cannabinoid, but a compound found in the early life of cannabis and hemp plants. The potential of CBDA is being discovered by scientist worldwide. It is the precursor to CBD and can be found in the leaves and buds of certain cannabis strains. Research on this compound shows great potential in the areas of breast cancer, inflammatory conditions, seizures, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and anxiety and depression.
What is CBDA?
Cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA, is one of the many molecules found in cannabis and hemp plants. Almost all cannabinoids begin as CBGA and are converted, through internal enzyme reactions, into THCA, CBDA and CBCA. From here, the “A”‘s take their own natural path into becoming full blown cannabinoids through decarboxylation (heat). CBDA converts to CBD.
One way to get CBDA is consume raw hemp or cannabis flowers. Juicing cannabis leaves can work well, but this can taste very bitter and sourcing high quality cannabis can be a challenge. Our CBDA isolate is a convenient option when looking to add CBDA into your regiment.
There have been several research studies on the effects of CBDA and those researchers all agree that CBDA when combined with CBD can have much more powerful effects than CBD by itself. A recent study showed that CBDA’s molecular structure is very similar to that of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This may suggest that CBDA has the potential to serve as an anti-inflammatory.
Other studies suggest that CBDA may be used in combating depression. CBDA interacts with the 5-HT serotonin system inside our bodies. Serotonin is responsible for several functions inside our bodies and one of its main jobs is controlling our moods. Researches believe that CBDA may work to increase serotonin levels inside our brains, similarly to the effects of pharmaceutical SSRI’s (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors).
Our CBDA is 90% pure CBDA and is packaged in individual 1 gram containers for easy formulating. Orders of more than 5 grams will be packaged in one jar.
Ingredients: CBDA – Cannabidiolic Acid. Derived from 100% industrial hemp. (0.0% THC)
Recommended Use: Use CBDA crystals to formulate your own products. For best use, we recommend a 1:1 ratio when combining with CBD.
