There are significant distinctions between consuming heated and raw forms of marijuana. For starters, juicing raw marijuana will not get you high and it has a number of dietary and therapeutic benefits.

Think about consuming raw cannabis the same way you consume a leafy green vegetable or fruit, like kale. Under this method, users consume the entire profile of the cannabis plant which contains both terpenes (aromatic compounds) and cannabinoids (chemical compounds).

According to Dr. William Courtney, a California-based physician, nearly 8,000 of his patients have seen positive effects from consuming raw cannabis as a dietary supplement by juicing, blending or chopping it up and combining it with other vegetables.

Dr. David A. Greuner, managing director and co-founder of New York City Surgical Associates, said, “You’re able to yield the medical benefits without any kind of psychoactive effect from it.”

If grapes can be bought at the grocery store to consume as a healthy alternative to junk food, but also turned into a popular adult beverage called wine which has psychoactive effects, why can’t raw marijuana accessible just as easy?

  1. Would one fail a drug test if he / she consumed ‘raw’ cannabis? When this article mentions ‘whole’ cannabis, are they referring to the entire plant – buds, stems, leaves, and all?
