cOur CBDA Drops taste like a freshly juiced plant because it contains more of the plant’s original raw beneficial compounds and complex terpenes which creates a more intense flavor than our CBD Drops. We never heat our CBDA Drops and recommend you keep them refrigerated.
- 1 drop ≈ 1 mg of total cannabinoids, 1 ml = 50 mg of total cannabinoids.
YOU SHOULD START WITH CBDA IF:
- You want to try CBDA’s more powerful benefits or know you respond better to CBDA.
- You’ve tried CBD in the past in moderate to high amounts (25-50mg) and have been unsatisfied with the results (25-50 drops of Healer CBD)
- You’re using THC and you don’t want your CBD hemp product to decrease its effects
- If you are confused and not sure where to start, Dr. Sulak recommends starting with these drops because they contain a 6:1 ratio of CBD:CBDA.

CBD AND CBDA – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a well-known component of hemp with diverse health benefits. Many are surprised to learn that the hemp plant does not directly produce CBD. The plant actually produces cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) which converts to CBD slowly at room temperature, or rapidly when exposed to high temperatures.
CBD and CBDA share many physiologic properties, but also have some important differences:
- CBDA is more easily absorbed (up to 11 times) when taken by mouth, compared to CBD.
- CBDA and CBD both have anti-inflammatory properties, but may act via different mechanisms in the body. For example, unlike CBD, CBDA has been shown to decrease the activity of the COX-2 enzyme, an enzyme responsible for increasing inflammation.
- CBDA may be more potent than CBD for some applications based on studies of rodent models of nausea, stress-induced anxiety, pain and inflammation, and seizures. We don’t know if similar results translate to humans yet, but it is possible that CBDA may be more effective than CBD at lower doses.
- CBDA is unlikely to mitigate the adverse effects of THC, a common usage of CBD. While many people appreciate the combined effects of CBD and THC, some find that CBD weakens the beneficial effects of THC and may prefer CBDA.
