Cannabidivarinic Acid (CBDVA)

Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVA) is a precursor to the cannabinoid cannabidivarin (CBDV) and is found in raw, unheated cannabis plants. Like other cannabinoids, CBDVA is derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is one of the primary precursor compounds in the biosynthesis of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.

During the growth and development of the cannabis plant, CBGA is converted into various precursor cannabinoids, including cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), and cannabivarinic acid (CBV-A), among others. Under specific environmental conditions or through external factors like heat, these precursor cannabinoids can undergo decarboxylation, a process in which a carboxyl group is removed, leading to the formation of their corresponding neutral cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.).
