CBDA

(Cannabidiolic acid)

About

CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid) is the dominantly-occuring hemp enzyme that decarboxylates into its superstar cannabinoid, CBD.

CBDA is synthesized from stores of its monther cannabinoid, CBGA over the course of a plant’s lifetime, with mature plants having the highest portions of CBDA and lower CBGA than their younger counterparts.

After starting out in high concentrations, stores of CBGA are slowly converted to CBDA and the other major cannabinoids throughout the plant’s maturation process.

Potential Uses & Benefits

With similar anti-pain, anti-anxiety, and anti-depression effects to its child-compound, CBD, CBDA presents the compound in an upstream form, with more chemical flexibility for researchers and producers looking to harness its downstream potential.
