WHAT IS CBDA?
CBDa is a full spectrum herbal extract in the form of a smooth crystalline powder with a subtle earth scent. It is directly derived from freshly harvested hemp as it is present in the plant in its natural form.
Our CBDa is created with our unique water based extraction technology preserving all of the hemp plant’s goodness the natural way. This allows us to give you a high quality and naturally stable hemp extract.
Our CBDa is not an isolate but a pure natural extract consisting of at least > 90% pure CBDa plus a biological spectrum of accompanying cannabinoids. The accompanying cannabinoids help maximise CBDa’s therapeutic effects and improve the overall efficacy of the acidic cannabinoid.
Our products provide consumers with all the benefits of Mother Nature's infinite intelligence.
When the hundreds of compounds from the hemp plant interact within our bodies, the combination of compounds produce a stronger influence than any individual one. We call this a ‘synergistic effect’. There is evidence of cannabinoids working together to provide improved therapeutic effects.
CBDa is just a more wholesome product than the isolates flooding the market.
We trust in Mother Nature, backed by Science
MORE ABOUT CBDA
CBDa is converted to the more familiar CBD in a process known as thermal decarboxylation. The “A” stands for acidic. Heat causes the CBDa molecule to lose its acidic carboxyl group. This process can happen instantly by a decarboxylation step in a CBD production process by smoking and vaporizing or in dried plant material left in a warm environment over time.
There are over 140 known cannabinoids in hemp that interact with the endocannabinoid system found in animals and in humans. Cannabinoid receptors are present throughout the body and affect different functions including mood, appetite, healing and the immune system.
Until recently CBDa was not considered pharmacologically active. New scientific insights however show superior potency, higher bioavailability and better applications for its acidic pre-cursor. Effective in lower dosage than products based solely on CBD.
Premium animal food brands have introduced successful products enriched with CBDa based on results from studies and consumer feedback. The latter praises its higher efficacy and lower side effects when compared to regular CBD products.
Creating a stable CBDa extract has been difficult as it easily degrades into CBD either over time or during extraction processes that rely on heat.
Harsh extractions, like Ethanol or CO2, result in a denatured CBD that significantly less potent than the naturally occurring acidic form. Proxarus’ method is gentle and allows CBDa to be purified from hemp without

THE UNIQUENESS OF CBDA
CBDa is a unique chemical compound that differs in effect from its decarboxylated metabolite, CBD. Animal models exhibit potent COX-2 enzyme inhibition, which accounts for the anti-inflammatory properties of CBDa. Additionally, research has shown CBDa can exhibit antidepressant-like effects in animal models.
The safety and effectiveness of CBDa for use in dogs with discomfort, joint and mobility problems has been proven in a randomised double blind placebo-controlled trial, conducted by Cornell University and a leading pet health brand. Due to results from this study, the company has started to enrich their pet products with CBDa.
Despite its demonstrated therapeutic potential, it has not widely been considered for commercial use. In part due to limited research (especially in humans), along with a historical inability to create a room temperature stable CBDa product because of its tendency toward decarboxylation into CBD at room temperature.
