What Is In Cannabis Juicing?

I don’t yet know the answer, but have an idea and will know for certain in a few days, at which time I will post the results.

To begin with, I am not “against” juicing cannabis leaves, but I have always wondered how much cannabis is really in a juice. So, I am following the instructions:

1. 25 large fan leaves, added 5 more for good measure, from an Omrita 2:1 rich CBD strain were
picked.
2. Their wet weight was 3.5 grams TOTAL
3. Instead of making the juice, I am sending the leaves to The Werc Shop, the best lab in California,
for evaluation. I will post these results.
4. The claimed mg of cannabinoids per juice is over 500 mg.

However, let’s step back for a moment and think about what the results are likely to show.

Let’s that when dry, the leaves weigh 2 grams (they will probably be less).

So, the claim of having 500 mg in 2 grams of material means it is nearly like low grade hash. Typical hash maxes out at 50% cannabinoids. I have seen a little higher and sometimes up to 600 mg/gram of cannabis oil/hash oil.

So, here, we are to believe there will be the equivalent of 1 gram of hash from the two grams of leaves. Make it 10 grams of leaves; it won’t much matter.

My guess is that the TOTAL cannabinoids will be around 5 mg in all the leaves. That means that it is not 500 mg, but single digit numbers.

I may be off a bit on the 5 mg, but it won’t be anywhere close to 500 mg.

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
