A man named John dressed in a lab coat stands amongst cannabis plants in the back room of the California medical marijuana collective North Coast Naturals. In a video produced by, he tells viewers why he believes juicing the greens of the cannabis plant can lead to the best health benefits. He explains that juicing is the most effective way to consume the various nutrients cannabis provides.

Holding up cannabis trimmings that would otherwise be discarded, he explains, step by step, how to put them to healthy nutritional use via juicing. Raw cannabis juice does not have psychoactive effects, but, as John explains, allows your body to absorb some key nutrients.

“People who have medicinal prescriptions such as my self should be juicing this,” he says. “in my opinion, juicing the leaves of the cannabis is much more powerful than smoking it.”

After juicing cannabis juice he takes viewers into the “bedroom” to meet up with a man called “MIT,” the “master grower” at North Coast Naturals, for a more in-depth explanation of the science behind cannabis juicing.

They explain on the YouTube page for the video that juicing cannabis can “increase your energy, increase your health and more importantly get the highest level of Cannabinoids including THC and CBD into your body.”

“This is one of the best applications that you can use the cannabis plant for,” MIT says.
