My First Two Weeks Eating Raw Cannabis


Two weeks ago I started eating raw cannabis. This has been a dream of mine ever since I was enrolled in nutrition school and heard David Wolfe, a raw food expert, speak about the advantages of eating a raw food diet. During his presentation he happened to mention how cannabis was one of the most superior plants for nutrition on the planet and described with passion and delight how amazing it is to eat. I immediately wanted to be eating leaves on my salad but it hasn’t been until recently that I found access to raw cannabis. It’s not like you can buy it with the kale at a grocery store and most cannabis farmers seem to use the rest of the plant for making MMJ concentrates.


I was told that for the first few days of me taking the raw juice that I might feel kind of gross as it has a detoxifying effect on the body. That is exactly what happened. I had a headache for 5 days and my digestive system got worked over. I felt like crud. Towards the end of the first week, though, everything started feeling better.

I noticed that my back pain in the morning wasn’t as bad and getting dressed was not quite as difficult. I would say that my overall pain dropped by 1/3! I’ve been feeling more motivated to exercise and my energy has increased. My mood has been on a steady “happy” for about the past week.

The other thing that I have noticed so far is that my tolerance for my other cannabis medicine has gone way down. My overall use has dropped in half not because I am trying to use less, I just don’t seem to need as much. That is a totally new experience and it feels great.

So far, I have been taking about 1 ounce of raw juiced flower and leaves and eating about 7-10 leaves per day. In the juiced form it tastes like a really torquey wheatgrass shot and is the most beautiful color of green. To eat the leaves, I have been chopping them up and mixing them in with my salads or blending them in smoothies. They have a mild flavor that combines nicely with other raw herbs and vegetables. It feels like I have just upgraded my entire nutrition regime by adding dietary cannabis. Did I mention there are no psychoactive effects like you get from smoking cannabis or eating a cooked medible? I just feel more clear and energized.


My initial goal was to try it for two weeks. Well, I made that goal and I don’t want to stop. My next goal is to stick with it for 40 days. I am still learning more about using cannabis everyday and this experience is changing the way I look at my medicine and how I can get the most from this amazing plant.

Just when I thought marijuana couldn’t get any better it goes and does this to me. Thanks Mary Jane.

Until next time…Eat your greens.

  1. I wouldn’t even know where to begin to look for it where I live. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. Also, congratulations on new discoveries! I wish you the best of luck on your journey!

  3. Thanks for your well wishes. I wish I had good advice on where to look for raw cannabis. Even living in a state where it is legal I seek out mmj farmers who are open to eating their plants. It is hard to come by right now. My only suggestion is to ask all of your cannabis contacts and see if anybody can help you. Good luck!

    Growing ones own but I suppose it that would be the best option or no one would dare mention, know where it can be bought . As for me I would consider this type of consumption except for the detox, 5 day headache and such. I just hate intentionally committing and knowing I ‘ll be feeling like hell any minute.. [smiles]. With reading more I will make a decision on trying this as a detox. I will be blessed to find results you noted, always seem to find something interesting and this is interesting. In closing I myself do not use mmy but I love the smell of it UNsmoked, the good kind.
    I just refuse to believe that something that smells that good …hummm is bad for ya, it’s almost like when I smell gasoline knowing, that inhaling is bad for you, but one keeps doing it. Now, now I know the above statement is an oxymoron however, I am sure you get my drift. Yes I may have answered my own question about ‘if it could smell so good but not good for ya conclusion, but I CAN REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT.[SMILES].
    Well I had fun ranting from one subject to the next. The most important thing here for me is to feel better.I have so much I want to accomplish and I don’t want to do it feeling worn out.
    I like what you said about the clarity aspect and the energy. Wish I knew you better to be more specific on some issues however,
    I may be reading more of what you have to say. Best regards.

    Thanks if you can please state your age. Now that I see that i can talk with you more, nice touch the closing salutation, perhaps I can check back with you. Please continue to take care as I journey toward my serenity as well.

  8. Hi Shana,
    Thanks for reading and leaving me comments. I hope you are one day able to easily find and eat raw cannabis as the dietary superfood that it is. Peace to you.

  9. Has anyone any info/experience of juicing fresh leaves,flowers & seed? The leaves & flowers appear to provide raw materials for Heme production whilst seeds provide raw materials for Globular Proteins,thereby providing a blood transfusion serum (Heamoglobin.)
    We shall visit Ghana this year where we intend to juice seed,leaves & flowers for a month & will report on our return.
    We have been juicing hempseed since 1996 & only on rare occasions have we enjoyed “Holy (wholistic) Communion”with the whole Cannabis tree.
    Thank you & bless you half-baked .

  10. Hi Abraham,
    Thank you for your comments. I’ve had some experience with juicing raw whole cannabis plant. I recommend it to everybody.
    Safe Travels,

  11. When you say Cannabis Plant.. are you referring to the MJ plant or Hemp? If I wanted to grow my own what strain should I use?

  13. Hi Amber, I am referring to the marijuana cultivar when talking about eating raw cannabis. I recommend growing indica style plants that are bushy and will produce lots of big leaves. Great question.


  14. This a most engaging one for me. Was not a cannabis patient when I first met David Wolfe back when. Have wondered since if he holds a position regarding raw cannabis. I’ve not heard, nor curious to research. Any idea?

  15. I can only say that he (or his social media person) will retweet raw cannabis posts when he is mentioned. Other than that, I’m just going to have to meet him again to have that conversation.

  16. […] has been about a year and a half  since I was able to first try consuming raw cannabis. I continue to say that there is nothing like raw cannabis. While every marijuana delivery method […]

  17. Once the vegetables breakopen plus a little root is uncovered, transplant each into a
    dice of rock-wool. When plant is 1″-2″ tall, put a chopstick or other little dowel close to
    the seed. If plant starts to drop, link it often towards the chopstick applying garden tape or
    sequence. If the plant is 6″ high, vegetable the rock wool in a
    peat pot. From below, you grow it inside the floor and can get the seed outside.
    The place maintained under lights in your cabinet and can also be
    planted in a 15 gal industrial planter pot. DO – preserve your pot
    seeds dried.

  18. I live in Michigan, just outside of Detroit. Last winter, I juiced up 6 of my plants ( the entire plant w/ stalk). My entire family got the flu. In fact, I didn’t know anyone who didn’t get the flu…. Except me 🙂 not even the sniffles all winter while working snow removal in the worst, record-breaking winter in the history of MI. It was like sweet nectar to my lips… I will be growing my organic cannabis outside again this summer. Connect with me by googling #1Cure4Cancer. Stay Green,


  19. Way to keep juicing!

    I have a suggestion about the juicing (ingesting raw cannabis). The roughage isn’t the important part. Eating a salad a day or a few times a week will get you the greens and roughage you need.
    The juiced cannabis plant provides a way for your body to balance itself. TwiceBaked didn’t have to go overboard with his Raw.
    My suggestion is this: juice the plant and drink or mix one ounce in with tomatoe juice, orange juice, whatever juice. Never anything warm or hot. Drinking the juice twice a day will straighten you right out without the detoxing stress on your intestines.
    Trust me, it really works….

  21. Great suggestions, Fran! I agree, there were way too many leaves in this smoothie. I will add, however, that I personally experience noticable benefits from eating the whole leaf rather than only juicing. That being said, juicing obviously allows you to consume much more without having to digest the plant matter. There is just no vegetable like cannabis. 🙂

    Hi I’ve wanted to try the leaves as well and have no idea where to acquire them o the Westcoast any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks great article

  23. Hi Vicki, The only way I know to get a steady supply of cannabis leaves is to grow your own or make friends with a grower for their leaves. Good luck hunting!
