Cannabis is a powerfully healing herb, and research shows how juicing the plant can be incredibly beneficial for the body without any psychoactive effects.

This method of consumption delivers to your body the combined perks of the plant and other raw, healthy ingredients in one go, making it ideal for anyone trying to live a holistically healthy and plant-based lifestyle. 

Here are some of the major benefits of juicing your cannabis, or throwing some hemp seeds into your concoction:

1. Proteins

If you’re conscious of your need for protein intake, adding raw hemp seeds or hemp protein powder might be a great way for you to ensure you meet your daily requirements in this arena. 

Ingesting raw cannabis seeds provides you with highly digestible globular protein, which results in a balance of all of the essential amino acids your body needs to build muscle and stay healthy.

2. Healthy Fatty Acids

Cannabis seeds contain healthy fatty acids the body craves, like Omega 3 and Omega 6. This can only be delivered to the body via raw ingestion – another reason adding in the seeds from your plant is a great option for utilizing all of its benefits.

Meanwhile, adding the actual plant leaves to your juice comes with a different set of benefits (see below) you may want to opt for depending on your needs.

3. Fiber

This one should come as no surprise – especially if you’ve juiced other leafy greens or drank green smoothies. Drinking raw, plant-based ingredients is a super simple way to provide your body with fiber, which is essential for a healthy digestive process. 

Cannabis is no different. Ingesting the plant in its raw form delivers your body with fiber, iron, and a variety of other benefits that work in tandem to keep your immune system boosted and well.

4. Vitamins

Cannabis is packed with health benefits that consumers reap, from cannabinoid content to terpenes. Beyond compounds that are exclusive to the cannabis plant, it also hosts a variety of healthy vitamins and minerals your body is incredibly grateful to receive.

When you juice raw cannabis, you receive a wealth of vitamins, like Vitamin C, E, K, B1, B3, and B6. This all works to boost your immune system as well, locking in cannabis juice as one of the most beneficial consumption methods on the market.

5. Raw Cannabinoids

Consumers are becoming increasingly educated on the importance and value of cannabinoid content, and the difference between raw cannabinoids and activated ones. Juicing cannabis gives you even more of an opportunity to receive the benefits of these compounds.

Cannabinoids found in the raw form of the plant, like THCa or CBDa, work synergistically with the plant’s other compounds (like terpenes, vitamins, minerals, and more), ultimately resulting in an entourage effect conducive to a holistically healthy experience. 

If you haven’t tried juicing your cannabis yet, now is the time to start – just keep in mind access to raw plant leaves is key to a seamless experience.
