The Benefits of CBDA & CBG

The Benefits of CBDA & CBG

A few short years ago, mainstream media personalities were shining their collective spotlight on the health and wellness potential of one of the many non-intoxicating plant elements in cannabis, CBD. Despite the long-standing stigma associated with cannabis use, adults of all ages were soon embracing the health and wellness potential of hemp-derived CBD products.

Today, various news agencies are focused on the possible benefits of two other cannabinoids produced in smaller amounts, CBDA and CBG. Although we admit the latest reports are rather compelling, the research is just getting off the ground. However, there are many other reasons to consider adding these minor, lesser-known cannabinoids to your daily routine. Once you know some of their many potential benefits, it’s easy to understand why so many CBD users prefer our CBDA and CBG-infused CBD tinctures.

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is the precursor to CBD (cannabidiol), essentially a pre-evolved form of the cannabinoid. While researchers once considered CBDA “inactive,” therapeutically insignificant, current investigations show that CBD and CBDA have similar health and wellness potential. Both exhibit analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and neuroprotective properties.2,3

While chemically similar, their many potential health benefits are achieved through entirely different mechanisms. CBD works by interacting with the receptors of the largest regulatory system in your body, your endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBDA does not interact with ECS receptors. Instead, researchers believe CBDA interacts with the receptors of the serotonin system. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that has a direct impact on energy levels, metabolism, emotional responses, and sleep cycles.4

What is CBG? How Does CBG Compare to CBD?

Although full spectrum CBD products generally contain only trace amounts of CBG, its status as a minor cannabinoid in no way diminishes its significance. Like CBD, CBG is non-intoxicating, has an impressively low risk of side effects, and shows analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and neuroprotective properties through its interaction with ECS receptors. Although CBG is not as well studied as CBD, preliminary investigations show that its effects appear to be stronger.

Where Can I Find Hemp-Derived Products with CBG and CBDA?

The oil extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of naturally cultivated hemp contains all the additional cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and other phytonutrients of the original plant source, including trace amounts of CBDA and CBG. For years, CBD products featuring enhanced concentrations were nearly impossible to find. Harvesting crops for minor cannabinoids just wasn’t particularly efficient or cost-effective.

But with growing interest in their complementary effects, innovative industry leaders like CBDistillery® have been meeting and exceeding consumer expectations by offering a selection of products featuring enhanced concentrations of some of the plant’s most intriguing cannabinoids. As you browse our selection of high-quality products, you’ll find the CBG and CBDA you’re looking for in our Synergy Collection.
