CBCA (Cannabichromenenic acid)
CBCA (Cannabichromenenic acid)-0.27%
CBCA is the raw form of the cannabinoid CBC. This cannabinoid is most commonly found in tropical and subtropical cannabis strains, but can be found in lower concentrations in many common strains. CBCA has been found to help fight inflammation and may also have some antibacterial and antifungal properties.
CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid)
CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid)-0.11%
CBDA is a derivative of CBGA and the precursor to the well known cannabinoid CBD. Over the last decade scientists have found that CBDA has a very similar chemical structure to that of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and thus has shown promise in treating pain due to inflammation by inhibiting COX-2 receptors in the brain that register pain. CBDA has also been shown to help regulate the over release of serotonin that causes severe nausea and vomiting in patients receiving chemotherapy, and while more thorough research is needed these results are very promising.
Cannabinoids are synthesized by Cannabigerolic Acid. CBG is the decarboxylated form of this acid that appears at low levels in most cannabis plants. Because its properties are beneficial to multiple parts of the endocannabinoid system, CBG has a wide range of therapeutic uses. It is non-psychotropic and can provide analgesic and antidepressant qualities.
CBGA (Cannabigerolic acid)
CBGA (Cannabigerolic acid)-1.45%
CBGA is often referred to as the, “Father or Mother of all Cannabinoids”. This is because CBGA is situated at the very top of the cascading reaction that creates THCA, CBDA and CBCA which, through decarboxylation, are turned into the three major cannabinoids THC, CBD and CBC. Currently there is little research being conducted on the medical benefits of CBGA, although it has shown extremely promising results when looking at the interaction between CBGA and colon cancer cells. When CBGA was applied directly to colon cancer cells not only did it destroy the cancer cells, but it also stopped the proliferation of new cancer cells. More research is certainly needed, but these preliminary results are extremely encouraging.
CBNA (Cannabinolic Acid)
CBNA (Cannabinolic Acid)-0.11%
CBNA is one of many compounds that can be found within cannabis. After the process of decarboxylation, CBNA converts into cannabinol (CBN). Decarboxylation is when one compound converts into another by exposure to sunlight, ultraviolet light, or heat. CBNA is believed to portray similar benefits as CBN, which is mildly psychoactive and is best known for its sedative effects. Strains and products with high concentrations of CBN can be a great choice for users looking to utilize cannabis products to ease restlessness and promote healthy sleep.
THCVA (Tetrahydrocanabivarinic acid)
THCVA (Tetrahydrocanabivarinic acid)-0.15%
THCVA is the cannabinoid acid precursor to the well known cannabinoid THCV. Strains such as Durban Poison and other Haze varieties have been recognized as containing high levels of THCVA and also THCV.
