A regular intake of raw cannabis can improve the body’s state

It may sound a little odd, but the facts speak for themselves. Eating raw cannabis on a regular basis can help the body achieve a higher sustained level of healthiness and prevent a number of ailments. Additionally, since tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), in its natural state, isn’t psychoactive, there’s no chance of “getting high” from consuming raw cannabis.

Cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants offer a variety of benefits. Some of these cannabinoids, CBDA (the raw form of cannabidiol and THCA (the raw form of THC) are excellent in treating inflammation and reducing pain. CBDA has also been shown to help alleviate symptoms associated with epilepsy.

Cannabis, as is the case with all leafy greens, contains a lot of fiber. This helps the body’s digestive capabilities and its immune system and can easily be incorporated into a smoothie or used as a garnish with dinner.

Cannabinoid acids have been found to contain pain relief properties similar to those found in aspirin – minus the lab-created chemicals. This can help fight ailments such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Virtually all leafy greens contain a number of nutrients, such as folate, calcium, iron, vitamin C and vitamin K. All of these are found in cannabis, as well, but cannabis has the added benefit of supplying cannabinoid acids. CBD and THC are also antioxidants, which can help fight stress and reduce the risk of cancer.

Anyone who wants to lead a healthy (or healthier) lifestyle should consider raw cannabis as part of a regular diet. As with everything – including fiber, vitamins and other nutritionally beneficial items – moderation is the key to success. Don’t go overboard and measure properly the amount to be consumed that will provide the greatest benefits based on sound nutritional advice.
