CBD vs. CBDa, what’s the difference?
CBDa the abbreviation of cannabidiolic acid is one of the primary cannabinoids produced on the flowers, leaves and stems from varieties of cannabis plants. CBDa goes through a decarboxylation process (remove the carbon dioxide and hydrogen) which removes the acid leaving a compound of activated CBD. CBDa is transform to CBD once it is heated through smoking and vaping, to get the benefits of CBDa must be in raw form, meaning it does not go through the decarboxylation process. Some of the ways to use CBDA is through live resins, tinctures and no activated full plant extracts. One of the best therapeutic benefits from CBDA is its great anti-inflammatory properties. Only certain strains, like AC/DC, Sour Tsunami, Cannatonic, and Harlequin, are high in CBDa. Hemp can is also a viable source of CBDa
