Cannabichromenic Acid (CBCA)

Welcome back, Spaced Cadets! This blog will be about one of the four significant cannabinoids, CBCA. CBCA stands for Cannabichromenic Acid, whose primary purpose is to defend against diseases, regulate growth, and produce CBC. CBCA has excellent benefits to offer. Keep reading to learn more.

CBCA is a precursor to CBC, and it originally came from CBGA. To get CBC, you must decarboxylate CBCA to turn it into CBC. A primary difference CBCA has from other cannabinoids is that you can get it constantly from the trichome stalks. Cannabinoids work with your CB1 and CB2 receptors, affecting your nerve cells, peripheral organs, and immune and inflammatory pathways while interacting with your TRPV1 and TRPV2 receptors. CBCA works through your endocannabinoid system that deals with energy, mood, and hunger. Using other cannabinoids with CBCA can make beneficial blends that enhance your cannabis experience.

CBCA has many incredible benefits that can help you, just like terpenes! CBCA has anti anxiety and anti depression properties, and has been shown to increase levels of relaxation. It also supports brain health and promotes cell growth. CBCA also has pain-relieving properties that can help block pain signals to help ease the pain. CBCA even has tumor-shrinking properties. A 2021 National Library of Medicine study showed that CBCA, with other cannabinoids, positively reacted to shrinking tumor growth. It has shown promising results in treating MRSA infections and other bacterial infections.

The cannabinoid CBCA has excellent potential when decarboxylated and used in CBC form. Just as terpenes have properties that can help with multiple issues, cannabinoids are just the same with their little powers. Cannabis is more than getting high with the correct terpenes, and cannabinoids can benefit you!
