Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and cannabidiol (CBD) are bioactive compounds of the hemp plant with major therapeutic potential. Cannabidiolic acid is a precursor to cannabidiol which results from decarboxylating Cannabidiolic acid.
CBDa:CBD assists dogs and cats with improved joint health. As our pets age, so do their joints, thus resulting in stiffness due to daily exercise and activity. CBDa has shown to be more bioavailable than its activated form of CBD and can help relieve occasional joint stiffness.
Unlike CBD, CBDa is better retained and absorbed, especially when used together with a lecithin base. In this post, we’ll dig deep into the benefits of CBDA and CBD in fighting joint diseases in pets.

Cannabidiolic acid is very effective at maintaining joint health and pain management. In fact, using CBDa products on affected joints helps deal with joint pain and swelling by triggering an anti-inflammatory effect in the body.
