So, instead of trying to find out where to buy pot in Colorado or Oregon, look for some fresh marijuana leaves and use them to make some juice.

Get healthy! Do not get high!

What is the best thing about using fresh cannabis leaves to make juice or a smoothie? These drinks may give you lots of health benefits without getting you high. The thing is that THCA, a compound contained in raw cannabis, needs to be heated in order to become THC.

Besides, raw cannabis contains cannabigerol, also known as CBG, and it may help your body manage intra-ocular pressure and lessen signs of glaucoma.

Fresh marijuana juice is also loaded with antioxidants that your body needs so much. The antioxidants play a significant role in fighting off free radicals and slowing the aging processes. Moreover, cannabis smoothies may improve your entire immune system.

Squeeze it right

Now you have only one thing left—to learn how to make that delicious green cannabis smoothie in a right way. Use only the freshest marijuana leaves for your drink, so you will get as many health benefits from it as possible. In order to avoid that unsavory leafy taste, add some other ingredients. You can experiment freely with various combinations of fruits, berries, and spices until you find the taste that works best for you. You can also use some watery fruit juice to change the taste and dilute the potency of your drink.

And if you are not afraid of experimenting in the kitchen, try to make some green smoothies with various vegetables. You can also consider the possibility of mixing raw weed with both fruits and vegetables. If you do that, you may discover new delicious tastes and flavors and make the drink even more beneficial for your health. Most fruits are sweet because they are loaded with fruit sugar, so if you mix them with berries or vegetables, you will protect your body from unnecessary problems with increased sugar level or extra weight.
