CBDA: Cannabidiol acid

CBDA or Cannabidiol acid is a cannabinoid that can be found in cannabis plants. Often found in high quantities in hemp plants, throughout its lifetime CBDA can convert into CBD.

Cannabidiol acid is a precursor compound, which means it can produce other compounds. CBDA originates from CBGA and can convert into CBD throughout the cannabis plant's life cycle. Unlike other cannabinoids, it does not bind directly with CB1 and CB2 receptors – it instead inhibits the COX – 1 enzyme.
