CBDa vs CBD: What’s the Difference?


And Why You Should Care

What is CBD oil?

Learn about CBDa vs CBD. CBD is everywhere you look these days, but what is it exactly? CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s an extract of the Cannabis Sativa plant, but CBD produced from the Hemp variety of the plant doesn’t contain enough of the psychoactive component (tetrahydrocannabinol or THC) to get you high. Instead, it’s used to treat a wide variety of conditions and associated discomfort.

What is CBDa hemp extract?

CBDa is cannabidiolic acid. It’s a much stronger, naturally-occurring cannabinoid in hemp plants, but it’s usually converted to regular CBD when exposed to heat during the extraction process. Early studies indicate that CBDa has a higher bioavailability than CBD and works differently.

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil

How They Work

Cannabinoids work by acting on your endocannabinoid system, so named for the compounds that act on it. Your endocannabinoid system is a lipid signaling network that modulates neuronal function, serotonin uptake, and is often responsible for discomfort. CBDa inhibits cyclooxygenase-2, an enzyme that’s associated with related discomfort. It can also help regulate serotonin reuptake, an important factor in helping the body maintain balance in many important ways. Learn more


There’s limited research on CBD dosing because, despite its popularity, it’s still relatively new. A trusted study from the Brazilian Journal of Psychiatry estimated that a dose of 300 mg was suitable for treating stress in most people. With CBD oils selling for about $100 per 1,000 mg, you’d have to pay almost $1000 a month to treat daily stress. CBDa is much more powerful than CBD for stress, so you can take less and experience more relief.

Why don’t more CBD vendors have CBDa hemp oil?

The standard extraction process eliminates any CBDa present by applying heat and converting it to CBD. To get CBDa and CBDa benefits, you must use a cold extraction process to preserve the CBDa and extract the full spectrum of cannabinoids. Learn more

Where can you get high-quality CBDa Full Spectrum Organic Hemp Oil?

Nesa’s Hemp extracts the purest, 100% organic hemp oil extract using no heat, chemicals, solvents, or heavy metals. Their gentle, cold living extraction process results in reduced oxidation and higher-quality, full-spectrum hemp oil.

What is full-spectrum hemp oil?

Some CBD vendors sell isolates that contain only CBD. Full-spectrum organic hemp oil from Nesa’s Hemp maintains the molecular structure of the hemp plant and includes many other beneficial ingredients and terpenes. These ingredients work together in what’s called the “Entourage Effect” to work synergistically in ways that achieve a greater effect than when taken alone.

How do you guarantee the quality of your hemp oil?

Nesa’s Hemp uses third-party testing from certified, independent labs to ensure THC levels are under the legal limit of .3%. They test for contaminants, mycotoxins, and heavy metals at one part-per-billion. Most CBD manufacturers test to one part-per-million, which can leave 999 parts undetected.

You can find test results for each batch number (available on your bottle) on our website.
In addition to testing, we package our CBDa hemp oil in Miron ultraviolet light-filtering bottles. Blocking UV light reduces the degradation of the oil and preserves potency. Learn more about the differences CBDA vs CBD . Learn more about COX1 and COX2
