CBDA (Cannabidiorcolic Acid)

CBDA, or cannabidiolic acid, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis plants. It is one of the acidic precursors to cannabidiol (CBD), one of the major cannabinoids found in cannabis. Like many other cannabinoids, CBDA is biosynthesized in the trichomes of the cannabis plant, which are small resinous glands found on the surface of the flowers and leaves.

CBDA is formed through a process of biosynthesis from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which serves as a precursor to several other cannabinoids. Specifically, CBDA is the result of the enzymatic conversion of CBGA by an enzyme called CBDA synthase.

In its acidic form, CBDA is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the euphoric “high” associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). However, research suggests that CBDA may have potential health benefits and therapeutic properties similar to CBD, including anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and anti-anxiety effects.
