Myriam’s Hope proprietary CBDa oil contains 750 mg+ CBDA per fluid ounce and other beneficial and therapeutic phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
In recent years, there has been a lot of focus on the medical potential of CBD (cannabidiol), a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has gentle sedative properties. It’s also being used as a treatment for rare forms of epilepsy. CBD wouldn’t exist, however, without CBDA.
The difference between these acidic forms of cannabis and their better-known versions (CBDA vs CBD, for example) is that the acidic forms of cannabinoids aren’t pharmacologically active.
Though, the majority of the research studies around hemp have been focused on the non-acidic forms of its cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, CBG, etc). But the benefits of their acidic precursors such as CBDA, and its potential benefits, and its uses, are finally being unlocked. And proving to be highly effective.
Major benefits include assistive relief for depression, epilepsy, nausea, breast cancer, and anti-inflammation. CBDA’s role as a COX-2 inhibitor makes it more than a cancer-fighter; it also makes it an excellent anti-inflammatory.
Using the decarboxylation extraction method (critical process), CBDA occurs by exposing the cannabis plant to either heat or sunlight, CBDA converts to CBD. In other words, CBDA is the raw form or predecessor to CBD.
Assists with depression, anxiety, and has shown remarkable results in children with Autism and Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD. After much feedback, Myriam’s Hemp addressed the need for a 1:1 CBDA:CBD formula, as best results were being uncovered with this blend. CBDA has also shown mood-enhancing potential.
Short answer no, on a molecular level they are not the same. CBDA activates the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor, increasing its mood changing capabilities. CBD has plenty of benefits and spreads almost over every psychological and physical issue while CBDA hones in on the serotonin receptors.
No. The only psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp is THC, which all legal hemp contains .3% or below.
