Lets face it, who doesn’t love the effects of using “medical” marijuana. It helps you take a step out of reality and view your life from different prospective. Giving you the time you need to analysis your daily events and so on. But, lets be honest,
Getting Stoned Makes You Lazy AF!!
Really, stop trying to deny it. How many times have you made plans to do things, decided to take a hit before you get into it.
Then BAM!, your on the couch wrapping up an entire season some NetFlix original. Trust me, I’m talking out of experience.
Here is the thing, maybe your all about maintaining a healthy level of your Daily Cannabinoid intake. Thats right, you’ve done your research and know that cannabinoid deficiency is real!
Can You Separate the Health from the High?
Here are two reasons you shouldn’t demonize THC and embrace its effects instead.
THC is the delivery agent!
Recent studies suggest THC is the main component needed for cannabinoid uptake. Separating THC from CBD or any other cannabinoid, will reduce it effectiveness.
Maybe even making them less useful medicinally. So, you need THC to absorb cannabinoids.
The High is part of the health benefit!
The High from THC is beneficial to health, generally. Not only does “getting high” help you alleviate the metal stresses of everyday. Smoking weed also relives muscle tension, like those related to migraines.
Not to mention the wonderful effects THC one reducing inflammation!
THC-A Vs. THC and THC-COOH
Most people may not know this, but THC has 3 different forms and only one of them can get you high.
This is important because it presents the opportunity to get THC into your body, without getting stoned… Um, just a heads up, all 3 maybe illegal in your state, .
THC: Non active THC it whats in the raw plant. Thats why you can eat raw marijuana without getting stoned.
THC-A:If you burn or heat up weed over 250 degrees. It converts to THC-A (active) and will get you high.
THC-COOH: Consuming any form of THC will be, metabolized and converted into THC-COOH. Inactive but used or detecting drug use.
The body loves THC-COOH and will absorb it and any other cannabinoid it can, into fat cells. They stay there until you burn off those fat cells, which can take a long time!
Avoid the High, Get all the Cannabinoids, including THC
Consuming Raw Marijuana is the key to properly absorbing all the Cannabinoids contained in Cannabis!
Since uncooked cannabis contains non-active THC, it won’t get you high. Non-active is THC is metabolized into THC-COOH which aids in uptake.
Another big bonus, since the herb isn’t burnt. You will retain all the Anti-oxidatives in the raw marijuana plant.
As well as its amazing anti-bacterial properties! Making it a more effective health supplement that smoking or using extracts.
Eating Raw Herb
If you grow, you be happy to know that nearly every part of the plant can be consumed.
So that means less waste and since more than just the buds are collected, your general yields are higher.
There are a number of ways you can use leafs, cuttings and even stems as raw ingredients in food.
We will explore this and try out a few recipes in future articles.
