Cannabis juicing is an incredibly health practice, which will you give you a ton of vitamins, nutrients, and raw cannabinoids.
There are over 80 cannabinoids in hemp; the one with the widest range of healing properties is called Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol (or CBD) does not cause psychoactive effects like THC (the cannabinoid responsible for making people feel ‘high’ or ‘stoned’). CBD has been proven consistently effective in treating a range of neurological and psychological disorders. As of today, there are no recorded negative side effects from the use of CBD.
Humanity has been juicing vegetables and fruit to unlock their nutritious potential for hundreds of years. It’s natural that medical patients and clinics have started to harvest the power of raw cannabis juice.
Much like vegetables, cannabis leaves and flowers can be eaten raw. The same way certain types of vegetables can lose a good chunk of their nutrients or enzymes if heated so can marijuana, which technically can be counted as a vegetable due to the fact that it possesses many of the same nutrients. Unlike vegetables though, this plant is full of cannabinoids unique to its genetics. In raw form this little form becomes an extraordinary medicine. The best part? It has little to none psychoactive effects which comes to light when cannabis is heated.
Raw cannabis has a strong concentration of cannabinoid and fatty acids. These can help reduce the harm from free radicals and improve cell function as well as improve the two-way cellular communication. Aside from that, raw marijuana has strong anti-inflammatory qualities and helps prevent tumor growth.
Consuming raw cannabis has been proved to be more efficient in treatment of medical conditions than vaporizing or smoking. It should come as no surprise that due to this fact the plant is hailed as one of the most important vegetables in the world. Numerous research data suggests that cannabis can improve the functions of both the immune and the neural systems, as well as increase bone metabolism. Some studies have shown that medical marijuana can prevent the growth of cancer cells.
Dr. William Courtney, a raw cannabis specialist, claims that people lose almost 100% of benefits which stem from cannabis wen it is cooked or smoked. Raw medical marijuana contains CBDA and THCA. For these compounds to become THC and CBD, the flowers have to undergo a heat treatment. The psychoactive effects of THC can be only achieved during this process. Under the heat THC becomes a CB1 receptor agonist, thus the body can properly absorb only about 10 mg of it at a time. However, studies have shown that in raw form humans can tolerate far larger doses of cannabinoids.
Dr. William Courtney claims that when cannabis is not heated, the body can absorb up to 500-600 mg. The plant, of course, has to be used as a dietary supplement, When consuming hundreds of milligrams of THCA and CBDA the neuro-protective and anti-oxidant levels go up. Courtney said that there is a dramatic effect of going from 10 mg THC to 500-1,000 mg of THCA.
As of this date the FDA approves a daily tolerable dose of 600 mg CBD. Typically, a marijuana strain has less tan 1% CBD, making it impossible to get the required quantity of the compound from smoking medical cannabis. However, medical patients can get a higher amount of the compound from raw plants.
Cannabinoids make it possible for two-way communication between the nerves. This can drastically decrease inflammation. Typically this condition is caused by immune cells being under attack. Because of this, there is no way for the body to tell the nerves to calm down. Cannabinoids allow for two-way communication which drastically reduces inflammation.
Some may think that cannabinoids exist only in the cannabis plants. This belief is false as these compounds can be found in human bodies where they are known as endocannabinoids. These are bound to different receptors which regulate such things as bone, immune and nerve functions. Infusing the hindered endocannabinoids with plant-based compounds can help get the systems up and running.
