Do you know about CBDa?
If you want to take full advantage of the health benefits that hemp has to offer us, this is for you!
Did you know that you can infuse teas with dried flower and get tons of health benefits like anti-inflammatory, antiemetic (Suppresses nausea & vomiting), anti-convulsant, and anti-cancerogenic properties (Formato, et al., 2020)?
The CBD that we use in our oils, salves, capsules, and gummies, has already been decarboxylated, which means the acid group has been removed through a heating process. CBDa when heat is applied converts into CBD. For example, when we infuse oil to make brownies, smoke it, or make hemp extract, heat is applied and changes CBDa to CBD and activates the compound. CBDa is found on the plant when it is growing before ever being exposed to heat and has TONS of health benefits.
CBDa can be infused into teas by putting in a tea bag or mesh ball and steeped with other herbs for added health benefits, but what the studies show seems almost close to a miracle when it comes to our health.
According to Molecules, an open-source peer reviewed journal, CBDa has been studied for its potential as an anti-inflammatory, antiemetic (Suppresses nausea & vomiting), anti-convulsant, and anti-cancerogenic drug (Formato, et al., 2020).
The truth is, CBDa was shown to interact with our endocannabinoid system, and it was shown to reduce inflammation, reduce seizures, and have toxic effects of breast cancer cells (cytotoxic) by altering the cancer cell lines, all while have protective properties towards healthy cells (cytoprotective) (Formato, et al., 2020).
The study also concluded that CBDa was also shown to have anti-epileptic properties, antiemetic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and CBDa was shown to have anti-cancer (cytotoxicity) effects towards acute lymphocytic leukemia, prostate cancer, and shown to inhibit breast cancer cell migration in triple-negative breast cancer (highly aggressive breast cancer) (Formato, et al., 2020).
My next question would be this: Since this has been published in 2020, how many people that suffer from leukemia, prostate cancer, or triple-negative breast cancer were told about the anticancer properties of hemp, including CBDa and CBD?
You already know that answer, which is why I am bringing it to you!
