50 mg CBDA + 50 mg CBGA from Full Spectrum Hemp Extract per Soft Gel
USDA Certified Organic Hemp Extract
All the major cannabinoids found in the hemp (cannabis) plants begin their life as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the mother of all cannabinoids. Plant enzymes convert the CBGA to three main cannabinoid precursor lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). CBD and THC are the most common cannabinoids, but it may be surprising to know that the hemp plant actually contains very little CBD when it is freshly harvested. It instead contains CBDA in abundant quantities. Its actual ratio is about 90-95% CBDA to 5-10% CBD.
Recently, scientists at Oregon State University published a peer review study regarding the effects of CBDA and CBGA on COVID-19. To read more about that study click here: Click Here for Forbes Article Related to the Study
The issue with these molecules in the hemp industry, is that it’s difficult to preserve them because of a process known as decarboxylation, where CBDA heats up to denature its acidic form. This produces “activated” CBD or the neutral molecule. Thus, it is entirely possible for CBDA to naturally convert to CBD only through exposure to heat and air.
Decarboxylation refers to the exposure of cannabis to heat to break down the acidic precursor compounds. The heat causes the precursor molecules to lose their acidic carboxyl group. The conversion process can happen instantly, like when the hemp material is smoked or vaporized. It can also be a slow degradation over time by storing the hemp plant material for extended periods at room temperatures.
At PHARM CBD we preserve these acidic precursor molecules, CBDA and CBGA as our USDA certified organic hemp biomass is harvested from our farm and immediately placed in temperature and humidity-controlled storage conditions allowing the acidic precursors to remain. The biomass is processed using our USDA certified organic extraction procedures allowing us to make a full spectrum extract that contains high levels of CBDA and CBGA, 50 mg of each per soft gel!
We have formulated these final products in a manner that increases the shelf life and preservation of these acidic molecules so that you have the optimal therapeutic experience with our new USDA certified organic PHARM Viral Formula!! This is the PHARM Difference.
