If you're a patient who desires the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana but do not want to feel the psychoactive effects some cannabis strains provide, you may want to consider juicing your cannabis. Juicing utilizes the raw leaves and buds of cannabis alongside other fruits and vegetables, which adds essential cannabinoid acids and other vitamins and nutrients to your daily routine.

By juicing cannabis, a patient can avoid feeling any psychoactive effects because the plant's cannabinoids have not been decarboxylated through the application of heat. In this way, THC stays in its acidic form, allowing it to provide anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic medicinal benefits without providing any head-altering effects. THCa is credited with being helpful in the treatment of ALS, autism, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and neuropathic pain.
