CBDa is proven to be much more effective on pain and inflammation

What Is CBDa (Cannabidiolic Acid)?

Believe it or not, CBD is present on growing cannabis plants in only very small amounts. In growing plants, CBD (cannabidiol) exists as CBDa or cannabidiolic acid. It isn’t until the plant is cut, dried, and heated that CBD is formed.
CBD is a calming phytochemical that does not cause a psychotropic experience.
Cannabis flowers go through significant changes as they dry. In fresh flowers, the active components are found in the acid form. That is what the (A) stands for.


When cannabis is dried and heated, these acids break down into more famous compounds like THC and CBD. THC is the primary psychoactive in the cannabis plant.
Cannabinoids like THC and CBD, which have been studied over the past four decades, have long been thought of as the main therapeutic compounds in the cannabis plant however, emerging clinical evidence suggests that there are many benefits to keeping the plant raw. “raw cannabis” refers to fresh leaves and flowers that have not been dried, cured, or heated. CBDa is a precursor to CBD meaning all CBD comes from CBDa after its been heated and extracted.
CBDA is one of an estimated 113 compounds known as cannabinoids in the hemp or cannabis plant.

10xPure combines Both providing the ultimate benefits.

Unfortunately, the majority of cannabis research has focused on psychoactive THC or activated CBD, not CBDa. This means that the little information that is available is subject to change and is considered preliminary evidence at best. The industry is unregulated at present and accordingly some less than ethical companies are selling dangerous fake CBD resulting in some people being hospitalized.The worlds most watched doctors show went undercover to expose Fake CBD Oil
The process of changing CBDa in to CBD is called decarboxylation. This is achieved either through baking, lighting, or heating which removes the acid group from CBDa and transforms it into CBD.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBDa?


Alot of emphasis is placed on CBD, however it may be surprising to learn that the raw hemp plant contains very little CBD. Instead, it contains an abundance of CBDa  (the ratio is about 95% CBDa to 5% CBD at the highest.) 
Patients with more advanced health challenges are encouraged to use 10x Pure which contains the greatest concentration of cannabinoid acids. 

 

CBDa has many advantages:

Substantial research on CBDa is advancing rapidly as more and more daily testimonials report many beneficial health findings from just about every ailment ever known. This is very exciting as many people under the careful watch of their doctors are ditching their pills, hence the nasty side effects. .

Laboratory research performed in cell cultures has found that CBDa has many anti-inflammatory properties. A 2008 experiment published in Drug Metabolism and Disposition has found that CBDa is a selective COX-2 inhibitor.
Simply explained, COX-2 is an enzyme that plays a role in the development of pro-inflammatory compounds called prostaglandins. This enzyme is a target of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), like aspirin and ibuprofen.


Inflammation is a natural and important response to stress, injury, and illness. However, chronic inflammation is painful and can be detrimental to health. Arthritis is one example of a chronic inflammatory condition.
The 2008 research discovered that naturally occurring CBDa selectively blocked the COX-2 enzyme, reducing its ability to synthesize pro-inflammatory compounds. The researchers found that CBDa was more successful than its counterpart, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa).

CBDa - Anti-cancer


Research from 2012 has found that CBDa effectively halted migration in breast cancer cells cultured outside of the body. While experiments conducted in petri dishes are no comparison to clinical human trials, the cannabinoid did show some positive effects against a highly invasive form of breast cancer. Research
Specifically, the CBDa treatment seemed to prevent the migration of breast cancer cells. In theory, a therapy that stops cancer cell migration would prevent the disease from spreading to other parts of the body.


Cell culture research from 2014 had similar findings, suggesting that treatment with raw CBDa found in 10x pure altered the expression of genes associated with invasive breast cancer metastasis. The cannabinoid also down-regulated the enzyme COX-2, which can amplify breast cancer migration.

Could CBD-A help people with psychiatric challenges?  Research Suggests It Can
As with almost all cannabis research, high-quality studies on CBDa for anxiety are ongoing in universities across the world. Recently Britain’s GW Pharmaceuticals included CBDa into a patent on the use of cannabinoids in conjunction with antipsychotic medications. The patent also included the cannabinoids CBD, THCV, THCVA, CBC, CBCA, CBG, and CBGA which can be found exclusively in 10xPure patented CBD-CBDa

Bio-availability & Potency in CBDa
It is fair to ask what is the advantage of CBDa having better potency vs. CBD? Many people misunderstand the pharmacological term potency. Having higher potency does not mean that it necessarily works better, but rather that it exerts its effect at a lower dose.
So why would it matter that you could take CBDa at a lower dose if it is doing the same thing as CBD?

 

CBDa and CBD found in 10x Pure work exceptionally well together as less of the cannabinoid is needed to get a therapeutic effect compared to its decarboxylated cousin. The suggestion being that by combining the two compounds, patients can take a smaller dose and may also benefit from a more rapid immediate effect on their health challenge.


Lower doses make it more amenable to alternative routes of administration (e.g. sublingual) which means taking it under your thong directly in to your bloodstream. This is extremely beneficial for people suffering nausea or vomiting.
