CBGA is an acidic cannabinoid that is found in hemp and cannabis plants.
In this guide, we will explore what CBGA is and the therapeutic benefits this acidic cannabinoid has.
What is CBGA?
CBGA is known as the “mother of all cannabinoids” as it is the foundational acidic cannabinoid crucial to the formation of other cannabinoids, including THCA and CBDA. Through decarboxylation, a process where cannabinoids are exposed to heat, CBGA is converted to CBG. However, CBGA has shown great therapeutic potential on its own, having some cultivators use selective breeding to produce higher concentrations of CBGA.
How is CBGA Made?
CBGA is produced in the trichomes of the cannabis nd hemp plants. It is the precursor to other cannabinoids including CBDA and THCA. This means that CBGA is responsible for creating these other cannabinoids within the plant.
Why Use CBGA?
CBGA may be a minor cannabinoid, but through research it has demonstrated it can be used in major ways. With an array of benefits and even more being unlocked through research, CBGA is a powerful cannabinoid that will be able to help an array of individuals and is one to definitely keep an eye on, both as consumers and in the field of science.
