"Raw Cannabis is non-psychoactive and science is now revealing that #cannabis is the most nutrient rich food on the planet. When you eat raw cannabis, your body is able to process extremely large amounts of THCa and CBDa without issue. Your body then converts these acids into the nutrients it needs via your own metabolism. Cannabis is a superfood. This incredibly unique plant contains over 400 different chemical compounds. The number of vitamins, essential oils, and acids found in cannabis has led experts like Dr. William Courtney to call weed a “dietary essential.” Cannabis is a particularly special plant in the world of nutrition because the herb contains extremely high concentrations of cannabinoid acids. Turns out, these acids are incredibly important for basic cell function. Consuming these cannabinoid acids is important because they help your cells communicate with each other via the endocannabinoid system. Consuming more cannabinoid acids may be the key to the prevention of chronic diseases caused by endocannabinoid deficiencies. Endocannabinoid deficiencies are thought to play a major role in the development of medical conditions like: Migraine Irritable Bowl Syndrome Glaucoma Fibromyalgia …and potentially many more! Courtney suggests that high doses of raw CBDa and THCa are much more effective than their broken-down counterparts when it comes to their: Anti-inflammatory properties Anti-diabetic properties Anti-ischemic properties (ischemia occurs when your blood vessels constrict, preventing oxygen from flowing to certain parts of your body.)

Granted, most people don’t consume enough omega-3’s, but that’s not because naturally occurring omega-6s are bad for you.
The problem is that people rely too heavily on processed and fast foods made with commercial vegetable oils, which are high in omega-6’s.

You should boost your natural omega-3 intake, limit your vegetable oil consumption and enhance your omega-6’s with GLA-rich foods like hemp seeds!
