Сannabis oil is a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
This healthy and nutritious oil is increasingly becoming available in grocery stores and health food shops. It has all the benefits of hulled hemp seeds and is also one of the best-known sources of the Essential Fatty Acids omega-3 and omega-6. Hemp oil is also a rich source of vitamins A and E, which are powerful antioxidants. Unlike flaxseed oil, hemp oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs and the ratio of the two EFAs is 3.38, closely approximating the
4.0 average ratio recommended by the World Health Organization. In addition, the biological metabolites of the two EFAs, gamma-linolenic acid (18:3 omega-6; “GLA”) and stearidonic acid (18:4 omega-3; “SDA”), are also present in hemp seed oil. Hemp oil also has effective anti-inflammatory properties. Anywhere you use regular cooking or dressing oil you can use hemp oil. Its nutty flavor and light texture are perfect for salad dressings, sauces, or drizzling over vegetables. It is the preferred oil for many internationally acclaimed chefs and is both full of natural enzymes and cholesterol-free.
Juicing Raw Cannabis
Raw cannabis contains THCA (A refers to acid) and CBDA, which must be heated to produce THC and CBD. This is the reason for decarboxylating or simply smoking the dried flowers. Test results show that heating converts 300 milligrams of non-psychoactive THC acid into 5 milligrams of psychoactive THC, and whilst the 5 milligrams retain their medicinal value it is a small percentage of the original THCA. THC acid isn’t psychoactive in its raw state but still has therapeutic value and patients can gain much higher concentrations of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids without experiencing the associated high. However, THCA converts naturally into THC, and therefore only fresh leaves must be used if the aim is not to ingest the psychoactive THC compounds.
The benefits of raw hemp juice
Dr. Courtney is one of the main proponents of the raw cannabis juicing treatment and has presented anecdotal evidence of the benefits, claiming that at least one patient has benefited tremendously from its use. This patient is his wife Kristen and her story is undoubtedly remarkable.
Tips for making cannabis juice
Kristen Courtney was suffering from joint inflammation and an array of autoimmune conditions, including interstitial cystitis and lupus, that caused her organs and other tissues to swell.9 She was prescribed over 40 different anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and painkilling medications in an unsuccessful attempt to combat the symptoms and had developed steroid toxicity. She was told by her doctors that she might make it to her thirtieth birthday. In desperation, Kristen moved to California, where she could legally grow her own medicine, and began juicing cannabis leaves daily. Kristen’s condition improved significantly, and today her pain has been eliminated and she has stopped using any other painkillers. Kristen’s story is available to view on YouTube.
