7 Reasons why marijuana's diet is good for your health


 Cooking with cannabis was once regarded absolutely taboo and reserved only for Cheech & Chong-watching stoners. As far as anyone was concerned, marijuana's sole health benefits were that it got you high and made you laugh.

Of course, unless you've been living under a rock for the last few years, you're surely aware that there are a plethora of advantages to cooking with cannabis that have nothing to do with getting stoney baloney'.

But don't worry, it gets better. Whereas cannabis brownies were the only true items on the market 30 years ago, the world of edibles has evolved dramatically in the last few years. Everything from cannabis-infused three-mushroom stews and macaroni and cheese to cannabis caramel sauce and even weed-infused Thai iced tea is on the menu. There are entire cookbooks dedicated to assisting you in becoming a red-eyed master chef.

If you haven't started cooking with cannabis yet, now is the time: here's why.

It Doesn't Have to Get You High

To begin with, cooking with cannabis does not always necessitate getting stoned. THC, a cannabinoid, is the principal psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. When these leaves are left raw and un-aged, the cannabinoid found in them is THCA, which is not psychoactive. THCA only becomes THC – the thing that gets you high — when it has been aged or, more effectively, heated. It's a process known as decarboxylation.                                                             For this reason, many people include raw marijuana and hemp plants in their diet. They want to reap all of the actual health benefits that these plants have to offer while not getting high. There's nothing wrong with that!

Cannabis leaves include a lot of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.



Raw cannabis leaves are a great supply of some vitamins, minerals, and fiber when seen exclusively through the lens of biochemical makeup. If it sounds strange, keep in mind that they are still green leafy plants that get you stoned. Raw cannabis has a lot of:

  1. K-vitamin (Essential for blood clotting)
  2. C vitamin (Essential for immune systems)
  3. Ironic (Essential for blood oxygenation)
  4. Calcium is a mineral (Essential for bones)
  5. Folate is a type of vitamin that is found (Essential for DNA repair)
  6. Cannabis, in particular, is extremely high in fiber. So, if your diet is deficient, it may be the solution.

It has a lot of antioxidants.

Antioxidants are necessary for our bodies because they protect us against stress and other forms of harm, as well as from diseases such as blood vessel disease and cancer. They are also our body's only line of defense against "free radicals," which are highly reactive chemicals that can wreak havoc on our systems over time.

Cannabis, whether raw or cooked, is high in antioxidants, which our bodies require. So, whether you're putting weed in brownies or juicing raw leaves, you'll receive what you need.

It's a Better Alternative to Smoking


People enjoy smoking pot, but the truth is that smoking anything is harmful. Inhaling heated smoke induces respiratory system irritation, and it has been established that persons who smoke marijuana inhale more deeply into their lungs (and retain the smoke there longer), resulting in four times the amount of tar as those who smoke cigarettes. And, before you ask, yes, burning marijuana leaves produces tar.

Using marijuana in your cooking, on the other hand, has none of the downsides associated with smoking and introduces no dangerous toxins into the lungs. Cooked marijuana, on the other hand, has an entirely different psychotropic effect on your body than smoking it. When you consume marijuana orally, it is first processed by your liver, which produces an entirely different type of THC than when you smoke it. This THC, 11-OH-THC, is more potent than ordinary THC (Delta-9THC), resulting in a stronger and longer-lasting high.

Isn't it true that the more you know the better?

It works well for pain relief.

As previously stated, persons who swallow marijuana often feel a more intense and longer-lasting full-body high than those who smoke it, who typically experience a high that lasts one to two hours.

So, if you smoke medical marijuana for pain treatment, cooking with it will not only help detect and neutralize the pain, but it will also deliver greater relief and for a longer period of time.

A high from oral ingestion might last anywhere from four to six hours on average.

It aids in nausea reduction.


One of the main reasons people are interested in medicinal marijuana is because it has been professionally shown to alleviate nausea and assist promote appetite. In reality, there has been numerous research on the usefulness of marijuana in treating nausea and vomiting in humans and animals. Researchers at the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) discovered that manipulating the endocannabinoid system is extremely successful in managing nausea and vomiting, independent of whether they are caused by natural stimuli or poisons such as chemotherapy.

The only problem with edibles is that because they can take up to 90 minutes to take effect, they aren't particularly beneficial for sudden and unpredictable bouts of it. However, if you know when to expect them — for example, menstrual cramps, after chemotherapy, and so on - ingesting marijuana is a wonderful approach to alleviate nausea, stomach pains, and other symptoms.

It has the potential to help in the fight against cancer.


After years of misinformation, the National Cancer Institute finally updated its website a couple of years ago to reflect the fact that cannabis is not only effective in helping to eliminate the symptoms of cancer treatment — nausea, loss of appetite, severe pain, and discomfort — but that it can also be used to fight cancer.

I'm not joking. THC cannabinoids were found to be able to isolate and kill cancer cells in clinical experiments on living animals.

However, a little-known reality is that you can't actually obtain these benefits from smoking because it's nearly impossible to smoke a clinical amount of the required cannabinoids. However, the appropriate dosage can be obtained in just a drop or two when converted into highly concentrated oils. People will frequently eat the oil with dishes, such as cookies, brownies, vegetables, and toast, rather than ingesting it on its own, which tastes rather bad.
