Juicing marijuana leaves has proven to be an effective treatment for all types of maladies, including cancer, Chrons disease, Lupus and brain tumors. The medicinal properties of raw cannabis is 400 times more powerful than heated or smoke cannabis. Also, when consumed raw, marijuana does not have a psychoactive effect. Advocates for alternative medicines are excited about the possibilities of this discovery. In many cases where patients have been told by their doctors and oncologists that no more can be done to relieve pain or reverse fatal diseases, juicing marijuana has proven to be a life saver.
The key ingredient in cannabis that’s so effective in treating and curing disease is CBD. Plants with an extremely high strain of CBD have proven to be most effective for medicinal purposes. Most marijuana available in North America is high in THC, rather than CBD (Cannabidiol). The reason being is that most marijuana in America comes through the black market and ”cannabis in this country has been cultivated for its intoxicating effects,” according to a report by Berkley Patients Care.
Unfortunately, cannabis is still considered a Schedule I drug, so federal restrictions have halted nearly all research on CBD studies. However, one British company, GW Pharmaceuticals, has gained approval from the FDA to being human trials for cancer patient treatment. Their product is an oral spray of juiced marijuana called Sativex. It is already legally marketed in Canada and Spain for the treatment of pain associated with MS (multiple sclerosis). The senior medical advisor at GW, Ethan Russo explained that CBD works on brain receptors are is very effective at regulating immune functions, nerve functions and bone functions.
Researchers are hopeful that this will open the door to more studies, and hopefully new legislation legalizing marijuana. A recent Gallup Poll showed that a record 50% of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana. An even greater number, 70% of the population, especially favor legalizing medical marijuana.
“By juicing the leaves of the cannabis plant, patients are able to drink CBD in its pure, natural form, which has been proven to treat countless medical conditions. CBD has anti-inflammatory, anti-biotic, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-oxidant, sedative, and immunomodulatory properties, and has been shown to relieve convulsions, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea.” - MarijuanaDoctors.com
