CBDa and CBGa Tincture Dosing Guide

What are CBDa and CBGa, and how do you use them?

You’ve probably heard all about CBD and minor cannabinoids such as CBG, but in this article, we’re going to investigate what many people refer to as raw cannabinoids. So, if you have been curious about trying minor cannabinoids or raw cannabinoids for yourself, then you have come to the right place!

What Is CBDa and CBGa?

CBDa stands for Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDa). It’s the precursor molecule to Cannabidiol (CBD). When you heat CBDa, which is typical during the extraction and processing stage, it goes through a molecular change known as decarboxylation, which basically means that it drops one of its carbon molecules. This process takes CBDa and transforms it into CBD. As a result, almost all CBD products contain zero CBDa because they were heated at some point during the extraction or manufacturing process.

CBGa stands for Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGa). It’s the precursor molecule to Cannabigerol (CBG). When CBGa is heated, it undergoes the same transformation as CBDa, turning CBGa into CBG.

What are the Benefits of CBDa and CBGa?

Although we don’t know as much about CBDa and CBGa as we do about significant cannabinoids such as THC or CBD, what we do looks promising. Both compounds interact differently than CBD or CBG but are both non-psychoactive and won’t get you high in any way.

However, there are some overlapping therapeutic benefits.

Just like CBD, CBDa activates your 5-HT1A Serotonin receptors. However, early research has shown us that CBDa could be 100x times more effective at activating these receptors compared to CBD. Imbalances in serotonin levels have been linked to depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and nausea. Another study showed us that CBDa could be more effective at treating nausea than CBD.

One study found that CBDa possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which it does by reducing COX-2 enzymes. This could potentially put CBDa in the same category as NSAIDs like Aleve or Ibuprofen but without the same adverse side effects.

Another exciting new study looked at both CBDa and CBGa and their ability to bind to the spike in the coronavirus. This potentially means that these natural compounds could prevent coronavirus from entering human cells.

CBG vs. CBD: What Are The Differences?

Early indicators show that CBG is more relaxing and calming compared to the effects of CBD. In addition, many people use CBG in addition to CBD and find that it addresses the aches and pains not being addressed by CBD.

CBG is more potent than CBD at lower dosage amounts and shouldn’t diminish the effects of THC, which is crucial if you’re using THC products for their medicinal benefits. CBG also shares some common characteristics with CBD, such as being non-impairing, and can potentially assist with mental health ailments and physical aches and pains.

How to Use CBG with CBD and CBDA

Starting off with 5mg of CBG of CBGa twice per day. When you wake up, and a few hours before bed is a good starting point for any beginner, you can gradually increase your dosage up to a maximum of 40mg per day over the next few weeks.

If you are already using CBD or CBDa to help with an overall wellness, and you’re interested in adding CBG, then take your CBG at least four hours apart from your CBD or CBDa.

Placing tincture drops directly under your tongue is one of the most effective ways to enjoy the potential health and wellness benefits of CBG. Most of the cannabinoid is absorbed into your bloodstream via the sublingual gland under your tongue, avoiding the digestive system.

CBG Dosage Guide

With all cannabinoids, and cannabis products, starting low and taking it slow is recommended. Of course, following the dosage instructions supplied by the manufacturer is always a good idea, but 10-20mg per day is a great starting point.

  • How long will the average bottle last? (30ml 600mg CBDa + 600mg CBGa)

Simply divide how many mg are in your bottle by your daily dosage and frequency of dosage to get an idea of how long your bottle will last.

  • What is the best way to take it?

One of the easiest and most effective ways to take any CBDa or CBGa product is in an oil or tincture form. It’s much easier to control how much you take and measuring out your dosage is fast and accurate.

No two people are the same, and your experience with CBDa and CBGa may be different to someone else’s. For some people, they find that looking for what they don’t feel rather than searching for the effects of CBDa or CBGa is more effective. It can take a little time for the effects to build up, so stick to a regular routine of when you take the CBDa or CBGa.

Side-Effects of CBDa and CBGa

As with all cannabinoid products, how you may react can be completely different from how someone else reacts. There are a variety of factors that influence how cannabinoids react in the body, including your tolerances, age, weight, sex, pre-existing medical conditions, metabolism, and even what you have eaten or drank prior to taking the cannabinoids.

Although considered relatively safe, some side effects may include:

  • Drowsiness.
  • Lightheadedness.
  • Nausea.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Dry mouth.

If you experience any negative side-effects, then reduce or pause how much CBDa or CBGa you are using. If you have pre-existing medical conditions, always speak to your doctor or healthcare professional before using any cannabinoid products.
