Cannabigerolic Acid, also known as CBGA, is a cannabinoid. It is used to prepare common cannabinoids such as cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol. The raw form of THCA can be heated to make other molecules like THC. When synthases, enzymes found within CBGA react with it, THCA can also be converted from CBGA.
CBG is the non-acidic CBGA form. CBG is transformed from CBGA to CBG by heat, much like THCA to THC.
CBGA can be safely used as CBG. It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid systems and has potential to be used in many therapies, including fighting cancer, mood regulation, and fighting it. It is also a powerful antibacterial agent, making it an excellent asset in medicine.
