CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is one of many compounds produced by cannabis and hemp. Abundant in the live, raw plants, it converts to the better-known CBD cannabinoid (cannabidiol) when exposed to heat or sunlight; a process called decarboxylation.
CBDA is good for inflammation and pain caused by inflammation. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBDA interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) by inhibiting inflammation-associated enzymes after an injury or infection. By blocking these enzymes, CBDA can relieve inflammation and associated pain.
