Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) | Noun

/kanə-bə-ge-ralˈik asəd/

  1. A non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is the precursor for THC, CBD, and several other common cannabinoids. Enzymes known as synthases are responsible for converting CBGA into “downstream” molecules such as THCA, the raw, unactivated molecule that converts to THC when heat is applied.
