"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.
Science is now revealing that #cannabis is the most nutrient rich food on the planet. 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:
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.)
1. Think fresh, whole foods Avoid processed foods. 2. Eat more vegetables Consume two cups of veggies at each meal. Incorporate more veggies into your favorite summer salads. During the colder seasons think more sautéed delicious greens such as kale, collards, and beet greens. Have veggies for breakfast, like sweet kabocha squash with eggs or try bok choy with eggs. Try new veggies like Chinese spinach, Chinese broccoli, watercress, water spinach, lemon basil, bitter squash, etc. 3. Eat more alkaline-forming root crops instead of acid-forming grains and breads Replace your bread and grains with potatoes, squash, winter squash, turnips, parsnips, taro, beets, etc. 4. Make soups with a greater variety of fresh spices and vegetables Try lemon basil, holy basil, oregano, lemon grass, ginger, galangal, and coriander. Add lentils along with your soup for more texture. 5. Eat 2 to 4 fruits a day Have fruit as snacks in between meals, or as desserts with alkalizing sweeteners such as sucanat, molasses, agave, or rice syrup. 6. Learn to incorporate fresh spices and herbs in every dish as much as possible Ginger, galangal, turmeric, curry, oregano, tamarinds, lemon grass, rice patty herb, fish herb, Vietnamese coriander, and mint leaves are just some examples. 7. Eat nuts and seeds daily Enjoy one or two handfuls of your favorite nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.) as well as your favorite seeds (pumpkin, sesame, etc.). 8. Incorporate alkalizing drinks into your diet Summer: Drink green vegetable juices, fruit smoothies, fruit spritzers, and lemon and lime flavored waters. Winter: Drink ginger tea, apple cider vinegar and hot water, hot veggie broths. Drink mineral and spring waters all year long. 9. Avoid excess salt Salt is acid forming so limit its use. Instead incorporate more spices for flavor. Small amounts of sea salt, soy sauce, and fish sauce are acceptable. 10. Consume proteins and flesh foods in moderation You need only 50 to 60 grams of protein per day which can be provided by flesh foods, beans, grains, cheese, yogurt, and other dairy. 11. Amazing alkalizing oils
While many oils have a negligible impact on pH balance, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, flax oil, and avocado oil seem to be the most alkalizing.
We hydrate as we feel we need, but who actually drinks 8 glasses of water a day? Why do we need to? Most of us would first consider the result of drinking all that water…endless trips to the loo.
Consider what other jobs water performs in our bodies besides quenching our thirst. The foods, water and air that we breathe are full of chemical toxins. We take them into our bodies without even realising. Water assists in flushing these toxins from our bodies, if and only if, we give it enough H2O to do so. A good comparison made to me is that of our dishwashers & washing machines. Do you use the same dirty water, over and over, only topping up, as necessary. Would anything be washed away? Or is it essential to use fresh water to clean effectively? Your body is no different. How can we flush the toxins from our bodies, if we are not taking in the required amounts of water daily to do so? You’ll never again look at 8 glasses of water a day, as being useless. Those 8 glasses perform a very necessary function.
Water is also an electrical conductor. Our bodies run on electrical currents. From keeping our heart beating, to sending messages in your brain and your nerves and so much more. You need electrical currents to live! This is where alkalised water comes to the fore. As it contains salt, the electrical conductivity increases, enabling our personal power stations to function at optimal efficiency.
Alkalised water has another important function. It assists in raising our Ph levels and reducing our Acid levels. CANCER can not live in an alkaline environment and needs an acid environment to survive. Ph testing strips can be purchased from the Chemist. A high alkaline diet is also necessary to reduce acid levels.
Always start your day with a glass of water. Alkalised water is best, or add ¼ tsp Himalayan rock salt or good quality sea salt. It doesn’t need to be cold, in fact water at room temperature doesn’t require your body to warm the water to begin with! Cold water may assist in cooling you down on a hot day, but it does require reaction from our bodies to adjust to the cold and burn energy to do so. Water at room temperature is ready for your body to use and requires no additional energy to be expended. Try and have this first glass of water about 30-40 minutes before breakfast to enable it to begin working…..getting your body ready for the day not just with cleansing water, but the salts which will promote electrical activity as well.
