In order to understand CBDA versus CBD you must start with where it is derived from.
What is hemp?
Hemp has been part of our culture for thousands of years. Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man and is believed to have originated in South or Central Asia. It is one of the strongest, most durable, naturally soft fibers on the planet. Items produced include paper, fuel, oils, medicine, clothing, housing, plastic, rope, and even food for thousands of years.
Hemp is not marijuana.
Definition of Cannabis & Hemp:a tall widely cultivated Asian herb of the genus Cannabis (C. sativa) that is cultivated for its strong woody fiber and edible seeds and oil and that is often separated into a tall loosely branched species (C. sativa) and a low-growing densely branched species (C. indica)
CBDA is short for Cannabidiolic acid. It’s a natural compound that is produced by the cannabis plant. CBDA was discovered in 1996 and is primarily found in raw, unprocessed plants.
The main difference between CBDA vs CBD is that CBDA is a precursor chemical to CBD, which is similar but, non-acidic. Meaning it’s the natural compound found in the raw plant. CBDA undergoes a transformation when cannabis is processed using heat and acidic compounds break down into new chemicals. This is the process that produces CBD from CBDA.
What Benefits Does CBDA Offer?In 2008 researchers noticed that CBDA had a very similar structure to commonly used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These include painkillers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. They found that CBDA inhibits COX-2, the same body chemical that’s inhibited by Nonsteroidal anti-anti-inflammatory drugs.
CBDA isn’t just used to reduce inflammation. It can also be used to treat nausea and anxiety. There are similarities between CBDA vs CBD but CBDA is 1000 times stronger than CBD in activating a serotonin receptor that reduces nausea and anxiety.
CBDA doesn’t act directly on the endocannabinoid system. Instead, by inhibiting COX 2 activity, it has an indirect effect. It also acts on 5-HT receptors, which influence serotonin production. Serotonin production is essential to overall health, including reduced anxiety and general well-being.
The enzymes that produce prostaglandins are called cyclooxygenase (COX). There are two types of COX enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2. Both enzymes produce prostaglandins that promote inflammation, pain, and fever; however, only COX-1 produces prostaglandins that activate platelets and protect the stomach and intestinal lining.
Oxyoil allows CBDA to have its cellular membrane removed
---- This makes it able to create covalent bonds
Hydrophobic Layer makes it more water soluble
CBDA is good for anxiety and inflammation
An anti-inflammatory agent.
---- Healthier then NSAIDs like IbuprofenEnhanced focus
Affects levels of serotonin
A powerful anticonvulsive
The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in regulating a broad range of physiological processes:
• Energy Level
• Intestinal Fortitude
• Immune Activity
• Blood Pressure
• Bone Density
• Glucose Metabolism
• How We Experience Pain
