Cannabis Juice May Have More Health Benefits Than Smoking
Juicing raw cannabis has immense health benefits that you might not believe until you try for yourself. Contrary to what you may think, the marijuana plant is far from being just a psychoactive drug used recreationally for a high. Marijuana-infused beer is already on the market, but weed juice may have a much larger place in the mainstream market.
Its leaves and buds contain a non-psychoactive, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-cancer nutrient compound in its raw form. This nutrient compound is known as cannabidiol (or CBD) and it’s proving to be a forefront in the legalization of medical marijuana across North America. CBD is essentially a superfood that’s capable of preventing and reversing a host of chronic illnesses, including many forms of cancer.
CBD has an extremely wide range of medical benefits, but here are the 8 most common uses for the miracle oil:
- Antiemetic: Reduces nausea and vomiting
- Anti-cancer: Combats cancerous cells
- Anticonvulsant: Suppresses seizure activity
- Anti-depressant: Combats depression disorders
- Antipsychotic: Combats psychosis disorders
- Anti-inflammatory: Combats inflammatory disorders
- Anti-oxident: Combats neurodegenerative disorders
- Anti-tumoral: Combats tumorous cells
There are many, many more health benefits of juicing raw cannabis into CBD oil and researchers believe we’re just at the forefront of breeding marijuana for medical benefits. In the past, the science behind breeding plants has focused on THC production, while in recent years following legalization in the US, CBD has become a focus of research and development.
Marijuana doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works… -Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Cannabis juice and other forms of CBD are much safer for patients to intake than THC and can be used in combination with high THC percentage plants since it actively suppresses the negative effects of THC. Narcoleptics in particular see a dramatic improvement in dosage when using CBD for example. We can only hope that a wider range of medical conditions can be treated with marijuana in coming years.
