Raw refers to cannabis that hasn’t been activated. It has not gone through the decarboxylation process that makes it intoxicating. Raw cannabis contains calcium, fiber, iron, omega fatty acids, vitamin A, B1, B2, C, E, and over 100 cannabinoids. Both THC and CBD in their raw forms are also included. The psychoactive ingredient in Cannabis plant is THC, but because it isn’t activated, it won’t produce those effects. The decarboxylation process activates cannabis through heat, sunlight exposure, or storing it at room temperature for a while.

Raw cannabis is considered to be nearly one of the most nutritional food sources in the world. It contains proteins that provide many of the essential amino acids. Raw cannabis is known to be difficult to come across. Growing it on your own is probably the easiest way to get a hold of it, but that simply isn’t the most viable option for the majority of people.

If one does manage to get their hands on it, it is best to make sure that the plant doesn’t dry out, because when it does, the health benefits will start to decrease. The most popular way to add raw cannabis into a diet is by juicing it. A juicer will slowly crush and squeeze the extract from the plant.

A patient with systemic and rheumatoid arthritis stated that they saw significant health improvements after starting to consume raw cannabis. People that want the health benefits but want to stay away from the psychoactive effects can reap the benefits through raw cannabis.

Use of Term

I started to incorporate raw cannabis into my diet to see if it will help with my arthritis symptoms a few weeks ago. So far, I’ve noticed that the pain and inflammation in my joints has decreased quite a bit.
