Recreational uses aside, Cannabis has been shown to have a wide variety of positive, and even life saving effects. While Cannabis, in it’s raw form, is still psychoactive, there is no real high from ingesting it.
In this form, it can assist the function of your immune system, provide anti-inflammatory benefits, and improve bone metabolism and neural function. Cannabis has even shown to reduce the growth of cancer cells in certain people. Children with epilepsy, people with chronic pain, depression, inflammation, bacterial infections and more are helped immensely from this plant.
It’s said that when you smoke or heat marijuana to a certain temperature, it burns up almost 99% of the real benefits. THC-A (Tetrahydrocannabinolic-acid) and CBD-A (Cannabidiolic-acid), need to be actually heated to produce pure THC and CBD.
When consumed raw, this plant is being eaten in it’s most natural form. It is a vegetable, a plant from the earth that needs to be treated like a medicine.
Raw cannabis can be consumed every day, multiple times a day by anyone of any age and it will have no ‘high’ effects at all. Add it to your smoothies, juices and even salads if you want! It takes a lot of material to get a good amount.
Around 20 – 30 large leaves or 2 to 3 large raw buds are needed per day to make a sufficient amount. It can’t be dried or heated, the point is to leave it raw and moist, straight from the plant.
