Cannabis juicing allows for a higher intake of cannabinoids than heated, inhaled or ingested methods and never produces a high or intoxication. Using a blender to juice is a good starting point for patients who are considering juicing but are not ready to make the investment in a juicer. Cannabis juice requires leaves, cut up, that have not been dried. As with fruit and vegetable juices, the fresher the cannabis, the better.
Freshly cut cannabis leaves and buds may not be available for sale in CBD shops, especially if you live in a city that is newer to CBD.
Cannabis juice is never intoxicating. It allows a higher concentration of vitamins and minerals to be delivered to the body. Raw cannabis contains CBDA which has extensive medical applications of its own.
CBDA is converted to CBD when heated or oxidised. CBDA are strong painkillers and anti-inflammatories. They promote the growth of healthy cells and stop the spread of unhealthy cells. CBDA are antiemetic, which means they reduce or eliminate nausea. CBDA has neuroprotective qualities and is antispasmodic, reducing muscle spasms.
By increasing the concentrations of cannabinoids reaching the body, cannabis juice can be used to treat conditions caused by a Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency. A Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency is when the body is not producing endocannabinoids naturally, sufficiently, or they are degraded too quickly. The endocannabinoids produced by the body are very similar to the phytocannabinoids in cannabis (CBDA, CBD, CBG, etc.). When the body is not producing endocannabinoids, leading to illness or disease, the phytocannabinoids in cannabis step in to help by activating the cannabinoid receptors in the same way the body should do naturally. This is why cannabis is so safe and effective in so many diseases.
People with chronic conditions related to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency, such as multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disorders, chronic migraines, fibromyalgia or irritable bowel syndrome, need the higher concentrations of cannabinoids that raw cannabis consumption can provide. Raw cannabis can also be used to maintain the health and homeostasis of our most important regulatory system (the endocannabinoid system) as a preventative medicine to avoid disease.
