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, inactivated molecule that converts to THC when heat is applied.
