Whether you think of marijuana as an herb or a vegetable, the leaves and buds of the marijuana plant are actually loaded with numerous antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer compounds.
These compounds are collectively known as cannabidiols (CBD) and they help make marijuana the superfood of superfoods.
When marijuana is burned, much of the nutritious and beneficial properties literally go up in smoke. Instead of missing out on some of the awesome nutritional benefits, try to juice it! You might be surprised at the incredible health benefits that juiced raw marijuana have to offer.
When heat is applied to marijuana, the psychoactive compound – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – is released from the plant. But, some people don’t want to get high from their medication. Our bodies were made to receive and process the marijuana cannabidiols, and the raw plant leaves and buds should not be heated when someone is seeking to obtain maximum healing properties of this superfood.
Oddly enough, we already have natural cannabinoid receptors built-in to our bodies. Getting CBD into your body can normalize functional systems like cell communication and immune functions. This means that the systems which make up your body, from cells to organs, will communicate better with each other and together will help to clean things up and get these important systems back to top working order.
Having the already built in cannabinoid receptors in our brains and basically no other way to get cannabidiol, one of at least 85 active cannabinoids, marijuana can be the perfect medicine to ensure our bodies are working at the highest level.
CBDs bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive “feedback loop” says Dr. William Courtney, a medical marijuana expert and founder of Cannabis International. CBDs imitate the body’s natural two-way communications system.
“The endogenous cannabinoid system acts as a modulator in fine-tuning for many of these systems, and if something is deranged biochemically in a person’s body, it may well be that a cannabinoid system can bring things back into balance.” – Dr. Ethan Russo, a Seattle area physician, Senior Advisor to GW Pharmaceuticals.
Juicing raw marijuana ensures you’ll get the healing benefits of the plant without the high. No smoking, no high, and you can ingest higher doses of the plant, which will have your system running more smoothly. Plus you can add other fruits and vegetables to make delicious juices and incorporate cannabis into your diet.
And for those who suffer from IBD’s (Irritable Bowel Disease) or IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) they can get the extra vitamins, minerals, and nutrients when they are on a fast. Sometimes patients with these diseases cannot eat solid foods, and consuming a liquid diet is their only option. Raw marijuana juice would be an excellent addition to any liquid diet.
Dr. Courtney and other doctors and nutritionists are working together and are focused on the national legalization of marijuana with hopes to see the plant added into mainstream diets. They have found that using cannabis as a food can help prevent, diminish, and fix:
1.) Autoimmune Disorders 2.) Cellular Dysfunction 3.) Chronic Inflammation 4.) Cancer Cells
