With natural health continuously becoming more of a interest to the population cannabis and its medicinal benefits is being utilized. Smoking it is moving further down the list on ways to consume it as light is being shed on healthy alternatives. Juicing cannabis is gaining popularity, and with my recent encounter with it, I can tell you why!
Health Benefits Of Juicing
When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and can provide you with a number of medicinal benefits such as digestion, antioxidants, and providing you with a detox.
Cannabinoids and Juicing
While smoked or vaporized cannabis can in fact be used as a medicinal therapy, juicing raw cannabis can help prevent health issues before they even arise. In its raw form, the cannabis plant contains both THCA (Tetrahydrocannabinolic-acid) and CBDA (Cannabidiolic-acid), two cannabinoids known for their medicinal benefits. Coined the “most important vegetable on the planet” by some, mainly because it can assist with immune system function, provide anti-inflammatory benefits, and improve bone metabolism and neural function. In fact, research has shown juicing may even help inhibit cancer cell growth.
Produce and Pesticides
When juicing, it is important to buy organic, additionally, when juicing cannabis, it is important to get your materials from someone you trust and to make sure it is grown without the use of pesticides.
Pesticides are being linked to major health problems in people such as causing reproductive and developmental effects, cancer, kidney and liver damage.
