Cannabicyclolic acid (CBLA)

Cannabinoid

Cannabicyclolic acid[Cannabicyclolic ˈæsɪd]

Definition:

Unknown to many users, cannabicyclolic acid (CBLA) is a non-psychoactive chemical found in cannabis. CBLA is a photochemical product created as a result of environmental changes that affect the chemical makeup of CBCA, rather than an original cannabinoid found in living cannabis plants (cannabichromenic acid).

The study of CBLA’s therapeutic advantages is still in its early stages. However, an upcoming patent implies that this little-known cannabis component could have anti-inflammatory properties. CBLA is becoming more widely available from cannabis research companies, implying that study into its applications will increase in the future years.
