Are There Any Benefits of Consuming Raw Medical Cannabis in San Jose?


Whenever you talk about medical cannabis in San Jose, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?


Vape pens?

Canna candies?


I am sure, it would be either or all of them.

But, what if we tell you that consuming raw cannabis can help you to increase the levels of immunity along with better communication within the cells.

Or that raw cannabis is a potent anti-inflammatory agent?

While you might look at it like any other medical cannabis article that intends to emphasize the benefits of medical cannabis in any way.

This is certainly not the case at all.

Medical cannabis is definitely a superfood. That collaborates with our system’s receptors and other cells for producing the desired effects.

And guess what, if your idea of superfood is limited to Kale, spinach, or blueberries, make sure to add cannabis to that list as well.

Now that, we are going to talk about cannabis as a superfood for the most part of this article. It would be wrong on our part, not to explain to our readers the concept of “Superfood”.

  • Superfood

According to the definition provided by the MacMillan Dictionary,

“Superfood is something that is considered to be very good for your health and that may even help some medical conditions”.

And why is that?

Because superfoods are a source of macro and micronutrients along with the right kind of other compounds that are essential for healthy living.

And, raw medical cannabis is something that happens to have it all. It contains Mg, Ca, Fe, Zn, P, and fibers.

Plus, they are rich in antioxidants as well. In addition to all the above nutrients, cannabis is rich in Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.

Let’s move ahead and understand the benefits of the major components that make up most of the raw medical marijuana in San Jose.

  • Cannabinoids

The compounds that are listed among the cannabinoids present in raw cannabis include THCA and CBDA.

And, if you think, I might have confused them with THC and CBD. Then you are completely mistaken.

Raw cannabis has THCA and CBDA which are known to have “acidic” components in them. It’s only later when then these compounds are converted into the widely acclaimed components of cannabis, namely THC and CBD.

Research has found that both components have potent healing abilities that can be used to manage a variety of medical conditions.

While THCA is known for its anti-inflammatory, antiemetic, and neuroprotective properties, CBDA is famous for its role as an inhibitor of cancerous growth, anti-depression along with and anti-seizure agent.

  • Terpenes

These are other forms of compounds present in medical cannabis. Although, they are often linked to aroma or flavors mostly. But, they also have their respective medical benefits as well.

Terpenes have antibacterial, analgesic, anti-cancer effects. These are known to enhance the therapeutic effects of the plant because of the synergistic effects.

These compounds help in providing medicinal effects in a range of disorders such as depression, anxiety, inflammation, and others.

  • Chlorophyll

You might be thinking, how will a compound used by the plants for respiration be helpful in managing our health.

FYI, this compound has a number of benefits such as anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-inflammation effects along with the advantage of increasing the levels of Iron content inside the body with detoxification effects.

So, if you are interested in making raw medical cannabis in San Jose as a part of your health regime, make sure that you always use fresh cannabis leaves.

Although, it might not be the best of tastes when consumed raw. But you can add the health portion within your tasty smoothies, and let it work for you in the best possible way.
