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.

What To Expect From Drinking Cannabis
The juice is non psychoactive so It won't get you high but I was shocked to find that cannabis juice gave me immense energy! I am talking 4 shots of espresso type of energy!

Cannabis juice alone is rather pungent so I suggest diluting it by adding in one of your favorite produce juice recipes with it!

What you need:

  1. Omega 8008 Juicer
  2. About an Ounce of Cannabis Leafs and Buds
  3. Produce Of Choice

Recipe:
An Ounce of Cannabis Leafs and Buds
Apple - 3 medium
Beet Root - 1 beet
Carrots - 8 medium
Celery - 3 Large stalks
Kale - 1 cup
Ginger-Thumbsized chunk
Cucumber - 1 1/2 cucumber

Thank You for sharing this info! I'm going to have to try this! I put freshly picked small buds in my salads for an extra spicy kick and energy so this makes perfect sense

It was simply delish. @jigs3716

Nice pictures. When I saw the one of the pulp I wanted to just reach out and touch it and feel its texture because it looks like it would make a great medium for Art much in the same way that the chaff leftover from roasting coffee beans can be used as a creative medium. Some day I may get the chance to explore this miracle plant further.

@itouraround Yes! I love how you related it with art! I love the colors that come from making juice and I have always wanted to paint with them like you can paint with coffee and wine! But I can never bring myself to use juice for paint because I always want to drink it! 😃
