Cannabis and CBD has been quite the game changer for millions of people who are chronic sufferers. But have you heard of CBDA?
CBDA is the compound before it’s extracted to become CBD. CBDA potentially has higher effectiveness and can be more efficient than CBD at activating the serotonin receptor, which reduces anxiety and nausea.
CBDA is effective in treating anxiety and pain, insomnia, nausea, epilepsy, and other conditions like anxiety.

About Stacey Cason –
Stacy Cason, CEO and founder of Planetarie, a water-extracted hemp business in Colorado, is a specialist in healthier alternatives to alcohol-derived cannabinoids.
Stacy Cason is a case study in taking the road less traveled. Starting with a 15-year tenure as a medical professional holding role as an ICU Nurse and anesthesiology nurse practitioner (CRNA), Cason had a front-row seat to pain management and the effects of the opioid crisis. But it was her offshoot career as a real estate developer that serendipitously led her into the world of hemp and changed the trajectory of her career and we believe, the world of pain management.
Stacy got into hemp first as a grower, as a business strategy to develop land she recently purchased, believing in the medicinal power of hemp and its alignment with her vision to offer non-addictive, natural alternatives for pain management. She discovered there was a processing issue when she went to harvest her crops, realizing as a scientist that the efficacy of hemp was being diminished by the current industry standard processing methods — ethanol and CO2 — which degrade the living cannabinoids, rendering them less bioavailable.
Cason believed there had to be a healthier way, and had the entrepreneurial audacity to engineer a new processing method that would retain the living cannabinoids, delivering the full medicinal benefits of hemp, with none of the harm, through fully stabilized, raw CBDa. Through tireless research, passion and development, Cason founded Planetarie and created an environmentally friendly water-extraction technology.
Knowing she was able to offer the industry a better form of CBD, Cason developed a manufacturing facility with the objective of being an ingredient supplier. But she was quickly disillusioned when she realized the race to the CBD market was cluttered with marketers eager to make CBD claims, many of which did not share Cason’s commitment to efficacy, transparency and integrity. And so she made another career pivot, developing her own pain management product line: Planetarie. The first and only water-extracted CBDa line, delivering the raw, most bio-available medicinal benefits of hemp to the consumer through a range of topical and ingestible delivery systems.
In addition to her role helming Planetarie, Cason — a rural north Louisiana native — is a scientist, athlete and businesswoman who believes in inspirational leadership and integrity. An avid learner, Cason accumulated numerous degrees including a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, Masters of Science in Anesthesiology, an Executive Masters of Business Administration, and is an alumnus of Harvard University. Cason presently resides with her golden retriever in Colorado, where she also holds titles of Ironman, bodybuilder, investor, speaker and an active philanthropist.
