What is the difference between CBD and CBDa?
What is CBDa? There are over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. The two most dominant are THC and CBD.
THC is the cannabinoid that gives a psychoactive (stoned) effect. Whereas CBD has no psychoactive effect at all and is used to support health.
So what is CBDa?
It is the acidic form of CBD and is the precursor. This means that when they extract the CBD from the cannabis plant it is firstly CBDa. Then through a heating process called decarboxylation, it turns into CBD.
Usually, this heating process can happen through smoking or cooking with CBDa.
When you buy a CBD oil it will have already been through this process so you will just get the CBD.
There are however health benefits to using it in its natural form before it turns into CBD.
Although it is not as ‘famous’ as CBD, it is still a cannabinoid that can support your health.
