Imagine humanity’s first conscious encounter with the cannabis plant — the first sentient human mind to ponder its verdant foliage and pungent flowers.
CBDA and THCA are relatively recent additions to the plethora of therapeutic products available to those interested in medicinal cannabis preparations, but utilizing the health benefits of plants in their raw forms goes back thousands of years.
CBDA and THCA offer unique benefits over more conventional, psychoactive cannabis medicine. The raw forms of cannabinoids do not have a pronounced psychoactive effect because they have not been decarboxylated.
The absence of a psychoactive “high” makes them ideally suited for treating children, the elderly and those sensitive to intoxicants. Studies on these raw cannabinoids have discovered many promising therapeutic applications, from helping to regulate the immune system and relieve inflation to providing neuroprotective effects and slowing tumor growth.
