The Power of Juicing Cannabis
Posted 02 July 2012 - 01:25 AM
There are many methods that can be employed to create nutrient dense drinks in the privacy of your own home. There are 3 top methods for juicing which is using the buds, sugar leaves or fan leaves. Most people only want to smoke or decarboxylate the buds for the obvious psychoactive and medicinal properties, which makes it less desirable for juicing. While yes you can juice buds, the reality is that you are wasting high concentrations of THC when you only want CBD's. Not to mention all the little trichomes that engulf the buds are highly irritating to stomach linings and in excessive amounts may cause some tummy troubles. So what does that leave? Sugar leaves and fan leaves. Sugar leaves are best reserved for making the various forms of hash, concentrates, topicals, balms and salves. Yes, you can bake and cook with sugar leaves but in my opinion that should be saved for a last resort for multiple reasons, which is discussed in my upcoming book. And the small amounts of trichomes again can cause sensitivities in stomachs. Fan leaves is where it is at. Full of CBD's the leaves will relieve inflammation, nausea, anxiety, debilitating illnesses and act as an effective treatment against cancer. Not to mention the high mineral, vitamin, and antioxidant properties without getting "high".
I would highly recommend using fan leaves as it is the most logical and practical out of the three options. A great way to utilize non-sugar leaves from a grow is to flush the plants before harvest time and collect the fan leaves to juice. This method of harvesting fan leaves comes from a "waste not" mentality and is a great way to use the remaining leaves for additional health benefits. This maximizes the medicinal uses of your plants without leaving much plant matter to be potentially turned to waste. But the most efficient and consistent way to juice would be to have plants that are only kept in the vegetation state in your home. What this allows is the ability for you to juice on a daily basis by freshly picking your leaves when you want to. And do not forget, it is perfectly fine to save fan leaves from strain varieties in the freezer if it is impossible to have plants in veg state in your house.
