Topical Uses of Medicinal Cannabis

Topical Uses of Medicinal Cannabis

leaf-med-1Cannabis has been used for its medical and non medical applications for thousands of years. The knowledge of medical uses of the plant is believed to have arisen first in Central Asia. One of the oldest applications of the cannabis plant is the topical application of the cannabis salves. Topical application, or applying medicine directly to a part of the body like the skin, has been used as an analgesic for general pain. In addition to its pain relieving properties, topically applied cannabis has been used for anti-bacterial, anti-inflammation, and anti-oxidant properties throughout human history.

Juicing Medicinal Cannabis for Health

HOW TO SET UP A JUICING GARDEN

Many patients are familiar with the pungent aroma of smoked cannabis flower buds. For many new patients, smoking any plant material can be both difficult and unapproachable. Drinking a smoothie of cannabis is an easier transition into cannabinoid therapy than smoked cannabis. Juicing cannabis also avoids the addition of heat to the plant material, which preserves the beneficial cannabinoids patients are seeking.

NOW, HOW TO JUICE?

juicerAccording to HPRC, the preferred type of juicer is a masticating juicer. Masticating juicers do not heat up like centrifugal juicers, and blenders do not remove the plant material from the juice. HPRC suggests that patients can take the large fan leaves of the plant, the smaller leaves, and even add fresh buds if available. Collect the juice and use fresh, or pour into ice cube trays and freeze for future use. Many of the HPRC patients try to use about 1 ounce of  cannabis juice per day.
