We are a California dispensary that have been open since 2010, but have been experimenting with medicinal cannabis for years now. We are one of the few clubs that provides fresh CBD juice. Let me take a step back and explain what CBD is first.
WHAT IS CBD?

CBD (Cannabidiol). So I am sure you know what TCH is, heard it many a times in reference to marijuana. THC is short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or "The High Causer". It is the most prominent psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. You see Cannabinoids are pharmacologically active compounds. TCH is just one of many compounds. When you use marijuana, the cannabinoids find their way to their target, your body's cannabinoid receptors. The cannabinoids bind to one of the receptors. This might make you feel euphoric and relieves the symptoms of your medical condition.
Back to the point, CBD or cannabidol. CBD is the second most predominant cannabinoid in marijuana. This compound continues to provoke interest for its therapeutic value. It has little to no psychoactive properties. Researchers and patients have begun to focus on the beneficial effects of using the TCH and CBD together, as well as on CBD's individual effect on diseases ans afflictions. CBD reduces anxiety and panic in some patients. It is an anti-inflammatory, sedative and a neuroprotective agent. Medical demand is high for CBD-rich strains so marijuana breeders have begun to producing high CBD levels in plants. Entire websites are dedicated to the understanding of this cannabinoid and its positive effects on human health. We are proud to be apart of this positively progressive word.
Why is juicing the best way to ingest you might ask. Well let me tall you all about it,
There’s no shortage of controversy surrounding the use of medical marijuana. Despite the copious amount of scientifically-backed data gathered over decades, if not centuries, which show that cannabis has tremendous therapeutic potential, many lawmakers remain hesitant to approve its use. Regardless, a growing number of dedicated researchers continue to investigate new therapeutic applications for juicing or eating raw cannabis.
It’s not just anti-cannabis critics who have a problem with this issue. Many of the people who consume raw cannabis with a doctor’s recommendation have no interest in getting high, sick people still have to more often then not, go to work, take care of families, or simply put function. For them, the plant is a safe and natural method of relieving constant pain and constant discomfort, and it’s euphoric qualities are thought of more as a burden then a reward. Research is now showing benefits from eating or juicing raw cannabis.
Now i have talked a little about THC and CBD, but the thing about the leaf juice is it has THCA and CBDA, these are ineffective alkaloids that are in raw juice. That is where some of the real medicine is. this is the chemichal compounds before the are turned into TCH and CBD using heat. Look up tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, or cannabidiolic acid. Those are the A forms of the molecules you are consuming. Juicing is working because it provides the cannabinoid acids, which are potent anti-inflammatory compounds that help regulate the endocannabinoid system in ways not fully understood just yet. When you juice properly, you consume almost no THC or CBD, it is all THCA and CBDA! That is why you don’t receive any psychoactive effects. You can still fully medicate without the worry of "over doing it". Warning though, juicing improperly may lead to heating the solution and causing THC to form. Another thing to look out for is where you get your medicine. Some times growers will spray dangerous pesticides such as AVID on there plants.
Consuming this is very high risk to your health The only way to know exactly what you have, strain or juice wise, is to have it tested by accurate lab you can trust.
