CBCA (Cannabichromenic Acid)

Cannabichromenic Acid (CBCA) is a cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis plant. It is considered one of the acidic precursors to cannabichromene (CBC), one of the major cannabinoids found in cannabis. Like many cannabinoids, CBCA is biosynthesized in the trichomes of the cannabis plant, which are small resinous glands found on the surface of the flowers and leaves.

CBCA is synthesized in the cannabis plant through a series of enzymatic reactions from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which serves as a precursor to several other cannabinoids. Specifically, CBCA is the result of the enzymatic conversion of CBGA by an enzyme called CBCA synthase.

In its acidic form, CBCA is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the euphoric “high” associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
