CBD and CBG plus their acidic forms CBDA and CBGA
When we think of cannabinoids, we commonly think of neutral forms like CBD and CBG. However, lately, there is some scientific data available also on acidic forms, which are shown to have several positive impacts on the human body. Did you already hear about CBGA and CBDA?
Biosynthesis of cannabinoids
In fresh hemp, we can mostly find acidic forms of cannabinoids. Acidic forms are precursors of neutral forms, which means that neutral forms are formed from acidic forms. This process is called oxidation and occurs naturally. It can be fastened up by exposing hemp to heat and/or light.
CBGA is also known as the “mother molecule,” and all other cannabinoids are formed out of it. CBDA is synthesized from CBGA by an enzyme CBDA synthase. CBDA can further oxidize. When the process of oxidation happens, we get CBD. But not all CBGA is converted to other cannabinoids by enzymes. Sometimes oxidation process occurs to CBGA as well. In this case, we get CBG.
Potential benefits of CBDA and CBGA
We are all familiar with the benefits of the most famous cannabinoid – CBD. It is helpful to know that acidic forms of cannabinoids, like CBDA and CBGA, provide certain pharmacological activities that we can benefit from.
CBDA is supposed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-emetic, and anti-anxiety properties (Rock, 2015; Rock, 2020). Therefore, it could help reduce inflammations in our bodies, help us ease or prevent the feeling of nausea and help us cope with stress-related symptoms.
CBGA, on the other hand, is supposed to be a novel cannabinoid in the therapy of childhood epilepsy (Anderson, 2021). It is also known to have neuroprotective properties and could be a potential remedy for fighting Alzheimer’s disease (Burgaz, 2021).
Most recent discoveries
In a recently published study by van Breemen et al. (2022), CBGA and CBDA were shown to block cellular entry of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants. By preventing infection of human cells by SARS-CoV-2 and preventing the entry of SARS-CoV-2 into cells, CBGA and CBDA have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.
We are all hoping to get our pre-covid lives back. We suggest you give a combination of CBGA and CBDA a chance and try to protect yourself and your loved ones from the virus.

AUSTIN, Texas , Jan. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hometown Hero CBD is pleased to announce the release of its new CBDA + CBGA Tincture. The 30ml tincture features CBDA, CBGA, CBD, and CBG at 600mg each. All the cannabinoids in tincture are hemp-derived and the product is legal in all 50 states. As with all of Hometown Hero CBD’s products, a portion of proceeds from the CBDA + CBGA Tincture will be donated to nonprofit organizations that help U.S. veterans in need.
“Hometown Hero is honored to provide a product that can help the world get through these difficult times,” said Lukas Gilkey , CEO of Hometown Hero CBD. “When we heard about their promising effects and rarity, we immediately stepped up to make sure that CBDA and CBGA would be accessible to the general public. We believe this product can have a massive positive impact.”
CBDA and CBGA recently came into the spotlight following the publication of research from Oregon State University . The two compounds only appear in greater quantities during the beginning of the plant’s life cycle. They also degrade when exposed to heat and light. Because of these factors, very few products contain substantial amounts of viable CBDA and CBGA in a consumable form.
The new CBDA + CBGA Tincture is vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free. The tincture can provide a 30 day supply of cannabinoids when consumed at the rate of one full dropper (1ml) per day. In total, the tincture’s contents include:
- 600mg CBDA (cannabidiolic acid)
- 600mg CBGA (cannabigerolic acid)
- 600mg CBD (cannabidiol)
- 600mg CBG (cannabigerol)
- MCT oil from organic coconuts (carrier oil)
Adults 21 and older that are curious to try Hometown Hero CBD’s products can get free samples of its hemp-derived Delta-9 THC and Delta-8 THC gummies.
