CBDA is the acidic precursor to CBD. When cannabis grows, its produces THCA and CBDA, not THC and CBD. These cannabinoids in their acidic form are often seen as being ‘inactive’. Both CBDA and CBD are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high.
Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, an acidic precursor to CBD. CBDA can be found in the live or raw form of cannabis, particularly in the hemp plant and strains bred to cultivate higher CBD levels. The decarboxylation process converts CBDA to CBD, this happens when cannabis is exposed to heat or sunlight.
CBDA can be ingested through juicing the raw plant and may also be found in tinctures, topicals and capsules. CBDA shows promise as an anticonvulsant, anti-nausea and vomiting agent, analgesic and anti-inflammatory. CBDA may also have antibacterial, antioxidant and cancer preventing properties.
