Benefits of Juicing Cannabis
Juicing raw cannabis has become increasingly popular. Like many vegetables and fruits, cannabis loses much of its healthful nutrients and enzymes when heated. By juicing raw cannabis leaves and buds, people are finding a powerful combatant to fight many chronic ailments including irritable bowel syndrome, glaucoma, and migraine headaches.
According to Dr. William L. Courtney, a dietary raw cannabis specialist, raw marijuana is a powerful and essential vegetable with many health benefits. This can be linked to the fact that it features 85 unique cannabinoids packed with nutrients and antioxidants.
Cannabis juicing can “help our bodies’ regulatory system be more effective. The bottom line is it’s a dietary essential that helps all 210 cell types function more effectively. I don’t even refer to it as medicine anymore, strictly as a dietary essential,” he explained.
Raw cannabis has no psychoactive effects.
Cannabis juicing is a great alternative or supplement to traditional prescribed medications. It’s also a good option for children and patients who don’t want a medicinal high.
Higher doses can be tolerated.
Because it doesn’t produce a high, cannabis juicing makes it possible to take in higher doses of cannabinoids, the plant’s medical components.
Cannabis juicing requires access to fresh plants.
This means you must be able to harvest from your own plants every day. Fresh is best, so keep in mind that cannabis prepared for smoking isn’t suitable for juicing.
You should drink juiced raw cannabis throughout the day.
Dr. Courtney recommends cannabis juicing fifteen leaves and two large raw buds every day. This will yield enough to drink some with three meals a day. You can also refrigerate juice in a well-sealed container for up to three days.
Juicing is versatile.
By itself, raw cannabis has a bitter taste, so it is best when combined with another liquid. Carrot juice is a popular option, but experiment to find your favorite. Since raw cannabis is fat soluble, some patients prefer to juice with high-fat liquids such as yogurt, ice cream, hemp, or coconut milk.
