“Juicing” Medical Marijuana
Joe | Jan 10, 2012 | Comments 1
Many of our readers know all of the ways people ingest cannabis: smoking, vaporizing, cannabis edibles and using hemp oils topically or orally.
But there is a new trend in medical marijuana out of California that may change the way patients and advocates look at ingesting medical cannabis.
Dr. William Courtney says he has discovered the best way to get CBD from cannabis without without activating the THC. Eating or juicing the entire raw marijuana plant.
Dr. Courtney explains that heating marijuana destroys enzymes and excites the THC’s psychoactive effects. But if ingested raw the CBD takes over, and dramatic healing activity occurs without the high.
Dr. Courtney met a very ill young lady who had moved into California to take advantage of that state’s medical marijuana freedom. After getting limited results from smoking or vaporizing pot and eating marijuana cooked edibles, she got involved with Dr. Courtney and was cured completely in a few weeks.
The method of cannabis ingestion she used mostly was juicing the whole plant. The leaves can be eaten as salad also. The branches are too fibrous for direct consumption or juicing. The young lady’s testimony and Dr. Courtney’s explanations can be viewed here (http://healthmaven.blogspot.com/2012/01/power-of-raw-cannabis.html).
Of course, no matter how you use it, cannabis is still illegal on a federal level. And eating or juicing a whole marijuana plant takes growing a lot of cannabis.
Dr. Courtney wants to get the United Nations to classify the cannabis plant as a vegetable, but that wouldn’t do much for laws in this country. Federal marijuana prohibition must be ended for this method of medicating to ever become practical in The United States.
