Crohn’s Disease, cancer, and arthritis are just three of the conditions that can benefit from a daily dose of cannabis juice. These patients are testimony to its healing powers.
Consuming raw cannabis is a new health trend with incredible benefits! Cannabis juice is easy to make at home and the result is a nutrient-rich beverage that offers unique health benefits. You’ll be able to access cannabinoids, like THCa and CBDa, that are not available when cannabis is decarboxylated.
Cannabis Juice Will Not Get You High
THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that gives that feeling of euphoria and happiness. In the raw form of cannabis, THC appears as THCa (a non-psychoactive acid). Heat is required to decarboxylate THCa, hence the lack of “high” when consuming cannabis juice. Be warned, however, that if you are going to juice flower (buds), there can be trace amounts of THC from the natural conversion of THCa during the curing process.
If you have the option to grow at home, that’s perfect, because then you can be assured that the plant material you put into your juicing machine is clean and free of pesticides.
The benefits are innumerable! Cannabis is high in fiber, which helps create a healthy and efficient digestive system, immune system, and improves your overall mental health. Raw cannabis also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals, including folates, iron, and calcium. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to fight against chronic pain and other conditions that are caused by inflammation.
Cannabis Juice Is A Nutritional Powerhouse
Raw cannabis is classified as a super food for its antioxidant properties. This means that it can clear the free radicals that bounce around your body wreaking havoc and potentially causing cancer. Antioxidants also support immune function, cardiovascular health, memory, and mood.
Why Cannabis Juice?
Juicing is the best way to get the benefits of raw cannabis because it breaks down and concentrates the healing elements. The result is a highly concentrated mix of cannabiniod acids (such as THCa), terpenes, and flavonoids that improve cell function and mop up free radicals.
The following are stories are from cannabis advocates that actively use cannabis juice to keep their disease at bay:

Coltyn Turner has used raw cannabis and cannabis oil to treat severe Crohn’s Disease. This is a life-limiting, and sometimes life-threatening, inflammatory bowel disease. The results are severe pain, diarrhea, and damage to the intestinal lining. Often, sufferers of Crohn’s face high fevers and weight loss, and, understandably, their entire lives are disrupted and affected. Turner found out that cannabis could help him get back to living a normal life. Then he found out that it could put his Crohn’s into remission! Cotlyn testified before Colorado state legislature in order to defend his choice of medicine while only 15-years old. Coltyn takes cannabis oil daily along with cannabis juice.
Kate Marsh juiced cannabis to heal her rheumatoid arthritis. She was being swallowed up by the side effects of her prescription drugs without seeing much improvement in her condition.

She achieved almost complete remission of arthritis and it stopped the accompanying pain!
How to Make Raw Cannabis Juice
Materials to make cannabis juice are not always easy to access. If you can grow your own, that is the perfect scenario. If not, you may be able to partner with someone who does grow, or even a local dispensary. Both of these may normally toss their trimmings.
