Cannabis-leaf juicing is the new green thing
Jason Lauve juices daily. A drink of his might start with a couple of carrots, a cucumber or two, and some blueberries. Then all of that gets added to freshly pulverized cannabis leaves.
The fruits and veggies may change (and sometimes he adds seeds and nuts), but the primary green has been a part of the 44-year-old’s mashup for about two years now. It’s inspired by the work of Dr. William Courtney, a California-based M.D. who specializes in dietary uses of unheated cannabis, and Courtney’s wife Kristen Peskuski, a patient and researcher who has used juiced raw cannabis to manage her systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other health issues.
