The Shocking Benefits Of This Incredible Superfood
The Shocking Benefits Of This Incredible
Written by: Brandon Epstein
For anyone who is not pro-marijuana – please put your pitch forks down while I explain why you should be juicing cannabis.
This may sound crazy, but some researchers of marijuana are now claiming that it has the greatest potential of any medicinal plant that we know of!
Pharmaceutical companies would love for you to believe that marijuana is the devil, so they can continue selling you toxic pills for every ache and pain you experience.
If you have been reading Fitlife articles for some time, you may already be aware that many of the solutions that synthetic pills claim to offer can be found through completely natural intervention.
The case for juicing cannabis can be made using the same school of thought.
Research is showing that juicing raw cannabis can be effective for a laundry list of chronic issues – some of which you may be experiencing right now.
Everything from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), glaucoma, migraines, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, hypoglycemia, anemia, chronic sinusitis, chronic bacterial infections and the list goes on.
I know what you’re thinking…
I have work, kids, responsibilities – I can’t be getting high all of the time.
The beauty is that you don’t have to.
The marijuana you need to be juicing is in it’s raw (undried) form, which means there is no psychological influence on your state of mind when you use it.
There are a host of positive healthy benefits you get from consuming dried (traditionally used) Marijuana, but what we are talking about here is a whole different ball game.
Using marijuana in it’s undried form can be thought of as just another superfood to add to your juicing regimen.
Here are some tips on how you can juice marijuana, brought to you by Dr. William Courtney.
- When it comes to juicing, as with any vegetable, the fresher the better.
- Cannabis that has been dried and prepared for smoking is not suitable for juicing.
- Dr. Courtney recommends that patients juice 15 leaves and 2 large (2 to 4 inches long) raw buds per day.
- Raw buds are flowers harvested when the THC glands are clear rather than amber.
- It is recommended that you mix in another vegetable juice to cut the bitterness of the raw cannabis.
- A popular choice is carrot juice and a ratio of 1 part cannabis juice to 10 parts carrot juice is a good rule of thumb.
- Split the drink into 3 parts and drink with each meal, or store for up to 3 days in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.
Like any superfood, the most positive effects can be found by using cannabis as a preventative supplementation to your diet. The introduction of cannabinoids into your diet can improve the two-way communication in your cells, leading to reduced inflammation. The cannabinoids also work to prevent or fight symptoms by providing nerve cells with two-way communication.
It really is magical what we are finding out about this incredible plant. Even if you are not interested in experiencing the psychological effects of consuming marijuana, you can now experience the positive effects by adding this plant to your juicing regimen.
Disclaimer: If marijuana is not legal in your state, please use caution and recognize that we by no means are telling you to consume marijuana. We are just sharing some super cool research with you that may serve the greater good in the future!
