The Amazing Health Benefits of Juicing Raw Cannabis Leaves

Contrary to popular belief, the marijuana plant is a whole lot more than just a psychoactive drug that “stoners” use to get high. In raw form, marijuana leaves and buds are actually loaded with a non-psychoactive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrient compound known as cannabidiol (CBD) that is proving to be a miracle “superfood” capable of preventing and reversing a host of chronic illnesses.

Though you may not have heard much about it, the CBD found in the marijuana plant — marijuana is technically just a vegetable, by the way — is a highly medicinal substance with unique immune-regulating capabilities. Since the human body already contains a built-in endogenous cannabinoid system, complete with cannabinoid receptors, inputting CBD from marijuana can help normalize the body’s functional systems, including cell communication and proper immune function.

The way CBDs work is that they bridge the gap of neurotransmission in the central nervous system, including in the brain, by providing a two-way system of communication that completes a positive “feedback loop,” according to Dr. William Courtney, a medical marijuana expert and founder of Cannabis International. As opposed to a one-way transmission, which can promote chronic inflammation of healthy tissue, the unique two-way transmission system engaged by marijuana CBDs mimics the body’s own natural two-way communications system.

So individuals whose systems are compromised by autoimmune disorders, cellular dysfunction, chronic inflammation, cancer cells, and various other illnesses can derive a wide range of health-promoting benefits simply by consuming CBDs. And one of the best ways to obtain CBDs is to juice raw marijuana leaves and buds, according to Dr. Courtney, who currently runs a clinic in Luxembourg that provides raw cannabis medicinal services to patients in need.

“CBD works on receptors, and as it turns out, we have cannabinoids in our bodies, endogenous cannabinoids, that turn out to be very effective at regulating immune functions, nerve functions, bone functions,” says Dr. Ethan Russo, a Seattle, Wash.-area physician who is also a senior advisor to GW Pharmaceuticals, a British drug company that is utilizing CBDs in a new marijuana mouth spray known as Sativex.

“There’s a tendency to discount claims when something appears to be good for everything, but there’s a reason this is the case. 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.”

Be sure to check out these amazing videos from Cannabis International that explain more about how raw cannabis, and specifically the CBDs found inside the plant, work to promote health and reverse disease:

As long as marijuana remains a Schedule 1 drug with ‘no currently accepted medical use,’ most Americans will never realize its benefits

While some U.S. states like California and Colorado are beginning to recognize and accept that marijuana has legitimate therapeutic value, the federal government continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug with “no currently accepted medical use.” And as long as it remains classified in this way, most Americans will never have the opportunity to experience the healing potential of this vital superfood.

But Cannabis International and other groups are continuing to educate the public about why marijuana is a food essential, and how legalizing it could change the world. To learn more, be sure to visit: http://www.cannabisinternational.org/

    “Hemp is a very valuable product and it’s essential, because it doesn’t really matter if Hemp can cure Cancer, that Hemp can reduce heart attacks by 66%, that Hemp can reduce Insulin-dependent Diabetes by 58% – it doesn’t matter – if the climate falls apart, and it’s falling apart – we are at three hundred and ninety PPM last month: last previous high in the last five hundred million years was two hundred and eighty. Changes are coming and we need to figure out how we are going to respond. This is one plant that could step in and provide us with many benefits. We are going to need to work together in order to 1: provide Cannabis as a dietary essential and Hemp as a way to manage the climate crisis, because at this point we can start extracting and stop adding.”Lets reduce Insulin-Dependent Diabetes by 68% and keep our libraries open. “It’s a dietary essential: it’s so much more than a medicine – and it definitely is safe.” — Dr. William Courtney”

    Proper Dietary and Medical Cannabis Dosing: from http://www.rawhemp.tk

    Plants sprayed with anything shouldn’t be juiced, but some pests are edible, such as Spider mites.
    To prepare leaves for a juicer, avoid rinsing – soak them in water for 5 minutes.
    Masticating juicers are efficient for leaves, buds and sprouts; a centrifugal juicer may need additional vegetables to chop fibers.
    To preserve juice fill containers so that air is minimized; a dose of juice frozen in an ice cube tray retains medicinal value.

    A sprout’s prophylactic, analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-oxidant and activities peak within 1-2 weeks. They can be grown by the hundreds in soil for raw food.

    For CBD without dysphoria from THC psycho-toxicity, heat bud to 166 degrees with a heat gun – the longer a bud is boiled, the less THC remains.
    D9THC boils at 157C, D8THC boils at 175C, CBD boils at 188C.

    Drinking heated juice for THC is more potent because there is less vaporization, adhesion and degradation to decrease potency.
    When calculating a dose of heated juice from a new strain make sure begin with smaller doses: the amount of THC in a cup of juice can exceed 100 joints worth – which could leave one unconscious for a number of days – and even heated leaves can be psycho-active.
