In fact, THCA has been found to have anticonvulsant activity, which means that it could be an aid in the treatment of epilepsy. It has also been found to be an effective neuroprotector and may help treat Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis.
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid(THCA) is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. The health benefits of THCA are better absorbed by the body through a raw consumption method, such as cannabis juice.
THCA works to relieve inflammation and pain and is an ideal cannabinoid for treating the symptoms of conditions such as arthritis and seizures. Of these, CBGA was the most effective and was found to provide even greater protection than CBD against certain seizures. In particular, CBGA was extremely potent against heat-induced seizures, and could produce the same benefits as CBD at much lower doses. In this way, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is converted to THC and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is converted to CBD when cannabis is smoked, vaporized, cooked, or otherwise processed.
In addition, CBGA is, in fact, the precursor to most of the other cannabinoid acids in cannabis, including THCA and CBDA. THCA is an effective neuroprotector, making it beneficial in treating conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
