CBDA: A Cannabinoid Acid with Therapeutic Promise
CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is a cannabinoid acid that results from the reaction of CBGA (cannabigerolic acid). CBGA commonly referred to as the ‘mother of all cannabinoids’, is the precursor to not only CBDA but also cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) which are the major precursor compounds to other cannabinoids. CBDA can be gotten in CBD rich industrial fiber hemp plants in large quantities. It converts into the active cannabinoid, CBD (Cannabidiol) as a result of the introduction of heat to the acid through processes like smoking, cooking, or vaping.
