What is CBGVa
Cannabigerovarinic acid (CBGVa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic propyl analogue phytocannabinoid of CBGa found in raw cannabis. Similarly to CBGa, it is a naturally-occurring compound and a building block for other phytocannabinoids. Through a process of biosynthesis, it produces THCVa, CBDVa and CBCVa. CBGVa in particular has been shown to assist with bacterial infections and cancer.
