Woman Replaces 40 Medications with Raw Cannabis Juice
We are seeing more and more research showing that cannabis is a healing plant — and it doesn’t necessarily have get you high. We are learning that there are a vast range of uses and methods enabling us to gain benefits in its various forms and one of the latest methods is juicing.
Juicing is a great way to release the most potent nutrients out of various plant materials. It facilitates easy digestion and enables your body to really get the maximum benefits. And we can now add to the long list of benefits associated with either smoking, vaporizing, or eating cannabis by now juicing also. It is vital to stress that it does not in any way involve users getting ‘high’. Cannabis in its raw form is not psychoactive and now many people advocate that juicing raw cannabis gives the most benefits – infact the beneficial compound responsible within the cannabis are known as cannabidiols(CBD) , rather than the THC which is the compound which gives the ‘high’. According to NaturalNews, CBDs “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’”.
Dr. William Courtney, founder of Cannabis International, is widely recognized as one of the biggest advocates of raw cannabis juicing. His patient (and his wife), has now become a highly visible supporter following her video featuring her testimony going viral.
A fellow researcher, Kristen Peskuski had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when she was just 16. In addition she had systemic lupus, endometriosis, and several other conditions. In the video, she explains how raw cannabis enabled her get eliminate the need to take a cocktail of more than 40 different prescription drugs. In addition, she highlights the case of a 2-year old child who after taking raw cannabis juice was able to combat brain tumors.
“There’s a tendency to discount claims when something appears to be good for everything, but there’s a reason this is the case,” says Dr. Ethan Russo of Seattle when he was discussing how raw cannabis could actually benefit our immune, nervous, and skeletal systems. “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.”
Some critics will say that the amount of cannabis that you would have to juice to get enough would make it prohibitively expensive , but this could be become less of an issue as cannabis becomes more deregulated.
