What is CBGA ?
CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. It is considered a "parent" cannabinoid because it serves as the precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol), and CBG (cannabigerol).
CBGA is synthesized in the trichomes of cannabis plants and is then converted into other cannabinoids through a process called decarboxylation, which occurs naturally over time or through exposure to heat or light. CBGA itself is not as understood as other cannabinoids as it was thought to have little benefit. But more recent research is showing significant therapeutic benefits to ingesting raw CBGA and to vaporizing CBG.
CBGA is often present in small amounts in cannabis strains, with the exact amount depending on the genetics of the plant and other factors.
It's important to note that the appropriate dosage of CBGA, CBG, or any other cannabinoid will depend on several factors, including the individual's weight, metabolism, tolerance, and the condition being treated. Anyone interested in using cannabis or its derivatives for medicinal purposes should consult with a healthcare professional or qualified cannabis healthcare provider.
CBGA Research Shows Promise!
MAY REGULATES GLUCOSE & VASCULAR
Research shows CBGA may inhibit an enzyme aldose reductase, which helps reduce glucose levels in the body and has a positive impact on lipid profile.
MAY HELP MANAGE SUBSTANCE ABUSE
CBG antagonizes CB1 receptors in the brain, unlike THC. This means that it may play a valuable role in managing addiction and substance abuse disorders.
MAY HELP CONTROL EPILEPSY
Early research shows CBGA is one of the primary cannabinoids showing promise at reducing convulsions in epilepsy.
MAY SHOW PROMISE FIGHTING COVID-19
Recent researchers have found that CBGA may have some potential to combat the SARS CoV 2 infection.
What is the difference between CBGA and CBG?
CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) and CBG (cannabigerol) are two different cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but they have distinct chemical structures and potential effects.
CBGA is considered a "parent" cannabinoid because it serves as the precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. When cannabis plants are young, they contain mostly CBGA, which is then converted into other cannabinoids through a process called decarboxylation. Early CBGA research shows anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, but more research is needed.
CBG, on the other hand, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is sometimes referred to as the "stem cell" cannabinoid because it can be converted into other cannabinoids, just like CBGA. CBG may have a range of potential therapeutic effects, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-anxiety properties. It may also have potential as a treatment for glaucoma and other conditions.
In summary, CBGA and CBG are both important cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but they have distinct chemical structures and potential effects. CBGA is a precursor to other cannabinoids and may have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, while CBG is non-intoxicating and may have a range of potential therapeutic effects.
CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) is decarboxylated when it is exposed to heat or light. Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group from a molecule, which in the case of CBGA, converts it into other cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, or CBG.
When heat or UV lighting is applied these cannabinoids lose one molecule of CO2 and change into their neutral form e.g., CBGA to CBG. This process is called decarboxylation. Therefore, when cannabis is smoked or vaporized, a large portion of the cannabinoids will be decarboxylated by the effect of the heat and will change into their neutral form CBG. However, if the same sample is ingested with no heat applied, they will keep its original state e.g., CBGA.
In cannabis plants, decarboxylation occurs naturally over time as the plant matures and is exposed to sunlight. However, to obtain a consistent and controlled level of decarboxylation, many cultivators use specialized equipment to heat the plant material to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time.
When cannabis is heated or burned, such as when it is smoked or vaporized, decarboxylation occurs rapidly and converts CBGA and other cannabinoid acids into their active forms, such as THC and CBD. This is why cannabis that has not been decarboxylated, such as raw cannabis or cannabis used in certain edibles, will not produce a psychoactive effect.
