Know Your Medicine: CBDA

Cannabidiolic acid or CBDA is one of the non-intoxicating phytocannabinoids found in the raw unheated cannabis plant. CBGA, cannabigerolic acid, is the parent compound to both THCA and CBDA.

CBGA is also the parent compound to THCA, via the enzyme THCA synthase. Unfortunately, there is very little research on CBDA despite recent studies showing potent anti-inflammatory effects and anticancer potential. Read full article HERE

Know Your Medicine: THC

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most prominent cannabinoid in the cannabis plant and is responsible for the psychoactive “high” effects. The THC molecule was not isolated until 1964 but our ancestors utilized THC-rich cannabis for its many medicinal effects. The claim that THC is recreational only and has no medicinal value is bogus. It is time to move on from the “Reefer Madness” propaganda. Many medical cannabis patients report significant and life-changing relief of medical conditions with THC-rich cannabis.
