If you’re new to the world of natural health and methods of relief, you might just have recently heard about what CBD is.

But did you know that CBD has a precursor called CBD-A, which research suggests also has some pretty interesting effects on the body? CBD-A is a precursor to CBD, meaning it’s essentially one of the chemical building blocks that makes up CBD.

Retrospectively it was considered to be inactive, but in the medical CBD there is are whispers surrounding this much underappreciated compound.

Believe it or not, CBD is present on growing cannabis plants in small amounts. In growing plants, CBD exists as cannabidiolic acid (CBD-A). It isn’t until the plant is cut, dried, and heated that CBD is formed.

If You Picked Hemp right from the Plant, You’d Find Mostly CBD-A and Very Small Amount of CBD.

That’s right, when you see pictures of hemp and cannabis plants growing in a field, they actually contain very little of the cannabinoids they are most known for. That’s because both CBD and THC require continued heat and/or aging to be transformed from their acidic precursors. CBD-A is known as the acidic precursor to CBD, and when cannabis grows, it produces CBD-A and not CBD. 

Science is discovering what now seems obvious. If you must heat, or smoke the plant in order to get to CBD, it makes sense to look at the CBD-A as its precursor.

Cannabinoids like THC and CBD, which have been studied over the past four decades, have long been thought of as the main therapeutic compounds in the cannabis plant. However, emerging preclinical evidence suggests that there may be some benefit to keeping the plant raw.

With the amount of emphasis that is placed on CBD, it may be surprising to learn that the raw hemp plant contains very little CBD. Instead, it contains an abundance of CBD-A (the ratio is about 95% CBD-A to 5% CBD at the highest.) 

So let’s take a look at some amazing facts about CBD-A that may make you reconsider which CBD product you buy in the future.

CBD-A is one of an estimated 113 compounds known as cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Hemp flowers go through major transformations as they dry. In fresh flowers, the active components are found as acids.

When Hemp is dried and heated, these acids break down into more famous compounds like THC and CBD.

Previously, it was thought that CBD-A was the inactive “cousin” to CBD. In fact, there is enough researched evidence that this so-called “inactive” cannabinoid is anything but lazy.

It also serves to reduce anxiety, inflammation, vomiting, tumor proliferation, and more. Here is a brief summary of early findings on the benefits of raw CBD-A:

Unfortunately, the majority of cannabis research has focused on psychoactive THC or activated CBD, not CBD-A.

Cannabidiolic acid (CBD-A) is a chemical compound found in the resin glands (trichomes) of raw cannabis plants. In a natural state, the hemp plant contains over 85 active compounds called cannabinoids. These compounds are secreted in a sticky resin through the trichomes (glands) of the cannabis plant. 

Raw means unheated and uncured. Basically, raw cannabis is fresh flower and leaves trimmed directly from the plant. CBD-A is the precursor to the more widely known molecule cannabidiol (CBD). In fresh cannabis, it is estimated that 95 percent of the cannabinoid exists as THCA and only 5 percent as CBD.

When CBD-A is aged and heated, it breaks down from its acid form and converts into CBD. This process of converting CBD-A to CBD is called decarboxylation, or decarbing. Baking, lighting, or heating cannabis removes the acid group from CBD-A and transforms it into CBD. With heat and time, the acid group of the molecule degrades and what is left is what many refer to as “activated” CBD.
