Did you know that juicing cannabis is a form of consuming marijuana? It’s a great addition to any smoothie, or even as a shot on its own. Juicing marijuana leaves can be fun, tasty, and a great health benefit that is packed full of minerals and nutrients for your morning routine.
Vegetables are typically defined as a “herbaceous plant grown for an edible part, usually eaten as part of a meal.” This typically refers to the leaf, stem, flower, or root of a plant. In 1967, the meaning of vegetables changed to, “any plant cultivated for food, edible herb or root.” Some vegetables may be eaten raw, while others must be cooked in order to be edible. When certain fruits and vegetables are heated, they lose a majority of their beneficial enzymes and nutrients. Cannabis is much the same. Aside from the fact that cannabis is technically a vegetable with many of the same nutrients as other leafy greens (like fiber, iron and calcium), it is jam-packed with beneficial cannabinoids that are unique to the Cannabis plant. Juiced cannabis is a nutritionally-dense, very potent medicinal compound, without the psychoactive components normally activated when heating the plant.
The high concentration of raw cannabinoid acids in juiced cannabis, coupled with the perfect balance of fatty acids, could help improve cell function and reduce damage caused by free radicals. Additional benefits of raw, juiced cannabis include reduced inflammation and the facilitation of two-way cellular communication. Many cannabinoids also have anti-tumor properties which are readily available through the consumption of raw marijuana.
Juicing is becoming very popular, and you can find a variety of different recipes on websites like Pinterest. Adding marijuana juice to your morning smoothies and other juice recipes is really easy and can add a unique flavor to your drink. Like your mother always said, eat all your green leafy veggies and don’t forget to add the dope!
