What is CBDA?
- CBDA is a parent molecule of CBD. CBDA is a compound that eventually turns into CBD. CBDA does not interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), neither does it bind directly with the CB1 or CB2 receptors.
- CBDA is thought to deliver its therapeutic power to the body by interacting with enzymes and 5-HT receptors rather than the ECS.
- Because of this, CBDA influences serotonin, a transmitter associated with happiness and overall well-being. Serotonin is vital to core human functions like motor skills, sleeping, eating, digestion, and emotions. Recent studies have shown CBDA is easier for the body to absorb compared to CBD.
- Research suggests that CBDA could potentially help alleviate pain and inflammation, symptoms of depression, nausea and vomiting, seizures, and convulsions.
