CBGA, the acidic precursor to cannabigerol (CBG), is the genesis of many major cannabinoids derived from cannabis – including cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The biosynthetic pathway, or lifecycle, of a cannabinoid molecule is triggered by a variety of environmental influences, including temperature, UV light, and oxygen exposure.

Seven Cannabinoids in One

CBGA results in not only seven analogs of itself, but produces the acidic precursors for all other major cannabinoids. By understanding the lifecycle of this molecule, scientists can craft special cultivars of cannabis and create products with unique and specialized cannabinoid profiles.
