What is CBGA?
Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) has been dubbed the "mother of all cannabinoids" by researchers and journalists based on the pivotal and important role that it plays in the production of all major cannabinoids (and many minor ones). CBGA is a minor cannabinoid and an acidic precursor, meaning that it is responsible for manufacturing another cannabinoid that plays an important role in the plant (its neutral version).
