CBD vs. CBDa

what is the difference? 

If this were a cannabinoid popularity contest, CBD would come in close second to THC. CBD’s therapeutic uses are well advertised, but its recreational users are often ignored. In addition to its many wellness benefits, CBD may prevent the anxiety-inducing effects of highly potent strains and overconsumption of edibles. CBD may also help bring you out of your shell in social settings. So if you don’t like getting blazed at parties because you tend to “get lost in your head” then enjoying some CBD before the THC may help keep you engaged and part of the party vibe.
