Are you familiar with the fact that marijuana is vegetable? Well this is true!
The marijuana’s leaves and buds are rich in antioxidants and have anti –inflammatory and anti- cancer compounds. These compounds are also known as cannabidiols (CBD) and because of them marijuana or cannabis is consider to be super food.
Don’t Get Dazed And Confused
But if you heat marijuana all the beneficial compounds evaporate. So that is why juicing raw marijuana is the healthiest way to consume it.
When marijuana is heated, the psychoactive compound – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is released. Most people don’t want to get “high” when they are ill. So we don’t need to heat the plant in order to receive cannabidiols.
People have cannabinoid receptors built-in to their bodies. When the body receives CBD, it is able to normalize the functional systems like cell communication and immune functions. This means that the systems in our body like cells and different organs will be able to function better.
Whole Lotta Love
We can compare this with a good relationship- if two individuals are able to have good communication they will have good relationship.
The cannabinoid receptors are located in our brain and there is no other way to get cannabidiol except from marijuana which is the perfect medicine for our bodies to work properly.
Dr. William Courtney, a medical marijuana expert and founder of Cannabis International says that CBDs bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive “feedback loop”. On the other hand one-way transmission causes chronic inflammation.
“The endogenous cannabinoid system acts as a modulator in fine-tuning a lot of these systems, and if something is deranged biochemically in a person’s body, it may well be that a cannabinoid system can bring things back into balance.” – says Dr. Ethan Russo, a Seattle area physician, Senior Advisor to GW Pharmaceuticals.
Juicing marijuana will provide you with all the healing benefits of this amazing plant without making you “high”. Remember: No smoking- no high. Instead with juicing this plant your body will function more smoothly and you will definitely feel better. You can also add other fruits and vegetables to prepare tasty juices and in this way you will incorporate cannabis into your diet.
Smoking causes inflammation which can cause infection, dysfunction and communication breakdowns in the organism.
