Hi there everyone, my name is Joshua Porch and I’m the founder and CEO of Bio Hacking Academy. I know I haven’t been active for a while, life has just had me way more busy than I thought I’d be during this pandemic period.
I’ve been promising for a while now that I’d do a review on CBG-A since I already did a review on regular CBG. If you guys don’t already know, CBG-A is the acid form of CBG, which occurs naturally within the plant. Nearly all cannabinoids exist within the plant in their acid forms until after the plant has been harvested and dried, and even then most of the cannabinoids remain in their acid form until they are heated either by flame, oven, dry herb vaporizer, etc.
Why does this matter? Because with most cannabinoids, the acid form has far different effects than the non-acid form of that cannabinoid (also called it’s decarboxylated form). Well, when I made and tried some CBG-A tincture, I was very surprised by what I found. The effects of CBG-A were not much different than the effects of CBG. With things like CBD-A or THC-A, those compounds have very different effects than CBD and THC, respectively.
What I discovered with CBG-A is that I got just as much relaxation, calmness, improved vision and drowsiness from it as what I get from regular, decarboxylated CBG. This was so strange to me since like I said before, the effects of CBD-A are pretty opposite of the effects of CBD. Same with THC-A vs THC.
Really, I can’t tell you why CBG and CBG-A seem to behave in a different manner inside the body than the other cannabinoids, but it is quite interesting. I don’t have much more to say about it other than that CBG is proving to be a more useful cannabinoid (from a medicinal standpoint) than people once thought.
I’ll always be adding in some Hemp related reviews on a fairly regular basis, but I think I’m going to pause that for a little while and teach on some other types of plants, nutritional supplements and lifestyle techniques to improve your quality of life.

Take Care, and God Bless!
