Term: Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)

« Back to Glossary Index

Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. It is most abundant in the glandular trichomes on the female seedless flowers or more accurately infructescence often colloquially referred to as buds. CBDA is the chemical precursor to Cannabidiol (CBD). Through the process of decarboxylation cannabidol is derived via a loss of carbon and two oxygen atoms from the 1 position of the benzoic acid ring.
