If we juice raw hemp, we find a large amount of CBDA alongside CBD.It has been observed and believe that a healthy proportion of CBDA in our oils improves the overall spectrum of health promoting photo-nutrients. Recent studies in the US seem to back these observations up that products without CBDA do not work as well
CBDA is the acidic precursor to CBD. When hemp / cannabis grows, its produces THCA and CBDA, not THC and CBD. These cannabinoids in their acidic form are often seen as being ‘inactive’. When cannabis is heated, such as through smoking, cooking, or vaporisation, a process known as decarboxylation occurs. Decarboxylation turns both THCA and CBDA into THC and CBD respectively. Both CBDA and CBD are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high.
