CBCA (Cannabichromenenic acid)
CBCA (Cannabichromenenic acid)-0.28%
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.
CBD is the second most prevalent cannabinoid and is primarily produced by hemp plants and at lower amounts in cannabis. It works as a phytocannabinoid, or binding agent, that adheres to an individual's endocannabinoid system. Cannabidiol has soared in popularity due to its lack of psychoactive effects. Most users seek CBD for its medicinal properties since it was the first cannabinoid to be approved by the FDA. Its healing properties include an ability to help you relax, reduce irritability and ease restlessness.
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)-0.79%
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.
THCA (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)
THCA (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)-31.9%
THCA is a cannabis compound with a laundry list of potential mental and physical health benefits. THCA is the non-psychoactive precursor to THC, the most famous cannabinoid of all. While THC is responsible for the psychoactive “high” that so many of us enjoy, THCA has shown great promise as an anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant and anti-emetic for appetite loss and treatment of nausea. THCA is found in its highest levels in living or freshly harvested cannabis samples. For this reason some users choose to juice fresh cannabis leaves and flowers to get as much THCA as possible.
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.
