VTCNA Health Tips: The Joys Of Juicing
“Juicing extracts the juice from fresh fruits or vegetables. The resulting liquid contains most of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) found in the whole fruit.”
When you juice cannabis, you remove quite a bit of fiber from the plant. This allows you to consume much larger doses of the vitamins and minerals from this nutrient-rich plant.
If you do have access to cannabis, especially big fan leaves, juicing them can provide you with mega doses of energy, vitamins and minerals that your body craves.
Juicing cannabis (or hemp for that matter) does not get you high because cannabis in its raw form does not have the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (or CBD for hemp) in it. Instead, it has the acid THC-A (CBD-A for hemp). It’s only when you add heat to THC-A (or CBD-A) that you then get the cannabinoid THC (or CBD).
Loaded with anti-oxidants, THCA, (CBDA) and more, raw cannabis juice concentrates all the nutrients of the plant into a condensed liquid, full of more beneficial nutrients and vitamins than you could eat in one sitting. (credit: Green Flower)
Hemp juice is particularly known for helping inflammation, anxiety and mood regulation, chemo induced nausea and is supportive in breast cancer treatment. Always contact a medical professional with any concerns or possible medication/treatment interactions.
So juice it up folks! Fan leaves are plentiful this time of year! Find a farmer, a friend, family and go make some juice love!
