Raw cannabis is made up of cannabinoids in the acidic form. THCa and CBDa vs THC and CBD.
Did you know that phytocannabinoids are slowly accumulated in the bodies fatty tissues, just like liphophilic vitamins (A, D, E, K). Be patient! Raw benefits take a bit of time but its worth it!
Experts like Dr. William Courtney recommend that patients juice about 15 leaves and 2 large raw buds per day. (About 25 grams)
TIP: If it is legal in your jurisdiction you can grow your own organic plants and juice all of the leaves at harvest time. Then simply freeze the juice in ice cube format for a quick add into your smoothie! Check out our smoothie recipe – its AMAZING!
Check with your Doctor to ensure that your medications do not interact with Cannabis. Medications that are impacted by grapefruit or pomegrante may also be impacted by Cannabis. * example: anticoagulants (heart medications) like Coumadín *
Raw Cannabis Hummus Recipe
- 1 can drained & rinsed organic chickpeas
- 1/4 c water

- 15 raw organic cannabis greens (chopped)
- 2 tbsp of cumin
- 1 tsp paprika

- Pink salt & pepper, to taste
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup organic high quality olive oil (to desired consistency)

- Combine the tahini and lemon juice in the bowl of your food processor. Process for two minutes to whip the mixture.

- Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape down the bowl, then add the remaining chickpeas and process for until the hummus is thick and quite smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes more.
- If your hummus is too thick or hasn’t yet blended into creamy green heaven then run the food processor while drizzling in 1 to 2 tablespoons more oil, until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Place hummus into a nice glass serving bowl. Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on top and place a nice cannabis fan on top with a few fresh thin slices of jalepeno. Share and enjoy!
