Cannabis can be found in several different forms across the globe. Did you know eating it raw can provide benefits even more so than smoking it?
Marijuana can be considered as quite the superfood. It contains over 400 chemical compounds that include multiple beneficial vitamins. oils and acids. Dr. William Courtney is one of many to label weed as a ‘dietary essential.’ Cannabis contains cannabinoid acids that when heated through vaping, smoking, or even cooking break down into different chemicals. These cannabinoids include THCa and CBDa.
These chemicals change into the psychoactive THC and CBD. This process is called decarboxylation and of course, these active chemicals have health benefits to offer us we are only able to cope with a specific amount at a time. When you eat cannabis raw you are allowing your body to process a much larger amount of THCa and CBDa. These acids are then converted into the nutrients your body needs through the metabolism itself.
Doing this can relieve issues like:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
Just to name a few, this is said to be caused by an actual deficiency of the cannabinoids. Doses of CBDa and THCa are actually considered much more effective in their raw form according to Dr. Courtney. Marijuana really is a nutrient powerhouse and we should not overlook the things it can do for us regarding our health. For more information please watch the video below.
