One of my favorite findings from 8+ years of experimenting with raw cannabis in my diet is noticing how it affects my tolerance for other ingestion methods used in my overall medical cannabis regimen.
Before supplementing with dietary cannabis I was using inhaled cannabis throughout the day along with with 2-3 THC/CBD infused edibles, rarely feeling like I was too ‘high’ while taking relatively large doses.
After supplementing with dietary cannabis I could no longer tolerate the doses I was taking and before long I no longer felt a need to consume the infused edibles for pain or sleep on a daily basis. I also noticed that I was ‘full’ with a couple of puffs of inhaled cannabis rather than feeling like I could take more all day long.
Feeling my tolerance go down to the chronic pain medicine I take regularly is nothing short of amazing and opened my eyes to the possibilities of consuming cannabis for the nutritional benefits as something to strive for in my consumption to be healthy and well.
In all of this experimenting I created a seasonal cannabis juice recipe that tastes like a refreshing, spicy treat for the senses as it saturates your endocannabinoid system.
Cannapple Ginger Juice
-30 grams of fresh raw cannabis leaves
-1 small handful of fresh mint
-1 inch piece of raw ginger
1) Rinse and soak cannabis leaves and mint in cool water for a few minutes before juicing. Prep your apple and ginger to fit into your juicer, as needed.
2) Put all ingredients through your juicer.
3) Serve over ice and take time to really smell your juice as you drink it.
Makes one serving.
Cheers to your health!
