Many people are realizing that preventative healthcare, as opposed to disease treatment, is a much better strategy for their lives.
Taking a proactive approach to health and wellness goes a long way to ensure you enjoy a healthy life.
The truth is that if someone doesn’t take their health seriously until they are ill, it could result in higher healthcare related costs, or even worse, it could be too late to do something about the problem.
As the pharmaceutical industry pervasively grows, more and more people are searching out natural remedies for health and wellness.
Could juicing cannabis or adding hemp seeds to your diet provide the preventative answer you’ve been looking for?
What are the health benefits of juicing cannabis versus eating hemp seeds? Do we need both?
The benefits of eating hemp seeds
Hemp seeds are a power food. There’s a reason why mixed martial arts superstar Ronda Rousey includes hemp seeds as part of her daily diet.
Much like other seeds, hemps seeds are a great source of protein, which is important for building and repairing muscle. Even people who don’t lead an active lifestyle benefit from adding hemp seeds to their diet.
Hemp seeds provide a lot of fiber, and can act as an appetite suppressant, making them a perfect addition to any weight loss plan.
Hemp seed contains all of the following vitamins and minerals – calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin D, and Vitamin E.
There are few, if any, foods as versatile and provide as much nourishment as hemp seeds.

Juiced cannabis provides its own unique health benefits
If you are already eating hemp seeds, you will also benefit from juicing cannabis as well.
When you are juicing cannabis, you are removing quite a bit of fiber from the plant. This allows you to consume much larger doses of the vitamins and minerals from this nutrient-rich plant.
Juicing cannabis involves having access to large amounts of raw cannabis, which is both logistically and legally impossible for many people. This is one obvious drawback for many, as compared to easily and legally purchased hemp seeds.
If you do have access to cannabis, especially big fan leaves, juicing them can provide you with mega doses of energy, vitamins and minerals that your body craves.
Juicing cannabis does not get you ‘high.’ This is because cannabis in its raw form does not have the psychoactive cannabinoid THC in it; instead it has the acid THC-A. It is only when you add THC-A to heat that you then get the cannabinoid THC.
When juicing, if you don’t do it properly, you won’t get the maximum amount of nutrients from the raw cannabis, so make sure to do your homework first!
Should you consume hemp seeds, juiced cannabis, or both?
Hemp seeds are an amazing source of protein, and juiced cannabis does not have significant amounts of protein.
Juiced cannabis provides vitamins and minerals in a much more concentrated fashion than hemp seeds do, but it is not easily available to everyone.
In a perfect world, both would be a part of a balanced diet.
