When looked at solely from the perspective of biochemical composition, raw cannabis leaves are excellent sources of certain vitamins, minerals and fiber. If that sounds surprising, keep in mind that even though they get you stoned, they are still green leafy plants. Raw cannabis are high in:

  • Vitamin K (Essential for blood clotting)

  • Vitamin C (Essential for immune systems)

  • Iron (Essential for blood oxygenation)

  • Calcium (Essential for bones)

  • Folate (Essential for DNA repair)

More specifically, cannabis is super high in fiber. So, if your diet is lacking, it could be the answer.

Antioxidants are essential to our bodies because they protect us from stress and other damage, as well as against things like blood vessel disease and cancer. They’re also our body’s only defense against “free radicals,” which are highly reactive molecules that can wreak havoc on our bodies over time.

Cannabis, whether raw or cooked, is chockfull of antioxidants that our bodies need. So, whether you’re infusing weed into brownies or juicing raw leaves — you’re going to get the stuff you need.

Extensive research demonstrates that green juices are a great addition to the diets of people with arthritis and that also consuming food that are rich in nutrients help fight off all pain related illnesses.

Terpenes: Terpenes are the aromatic bits of the cannabis plant, which mostly get burnt when smoked, denying you their health benefits. In their raw shape, terpenes have anti-convulsing and sleep-inducing properties, providing a sense of calm and relaxation to your entire system.
