    The info I am finding online about juicing raw cannabis is all over the map. So, can anyone with actual experience explain to me how much fresh leaves/material are required each day to juice 3 times a day? 1 time a day?

    I've read that 20g of fresh fan leaves is enough. I've also read no less than 30 g. I'm aware that you mix the bulk of the drink with other vegetabes/fruits of your choosing. One thing that everyone seems to agree on is it tastes awful.

    not looking to start a big debate just trying to figure out if it's even remotely doable for me even at 1 drink/day.

    Thanks

    depends on what ya juice I guess.
    Anything mature will see you get high as some will already be decarbed.
    Eating fresh immature pot won't get you as high as the THC or cannabinoids are not active.

    I was saving fan leaves for my wife with JRA and she would use the equivalent of 3 mature plants a week(_3 feet),,,before budding.

    My understanding is that most people purely use fan leaves off vegging plants. No high.

    you will find you need to juice it with another fruit or veg that will add some moisture...
    at least I did....I would have to add a carrot or apple otherwise it was tough to get much juice containing
    just cannabis.
    I always do better eating fresh fan leaves like a salad...a bowl some dressing and the leaves...

    I juice every morning. All i can share is what works for me. Years ago I was diagnosed with a degenerative spinal cord disease. I was told I would be in a wheel chair by 50, 51 now and still vital. Doctors had me on meds that were $5200.00 a month, only to make me worse. Used to be in pain that had me on the floor for days, now I only get 3-4 flair ups a year.
    Each morning I juice, carrots, beats, kale and cannabis. You have to juice the carrots and cannabis together or the cannabis has a hard time going through the juicer.
    4-5 carrots
    1 beat
    handful kale
    hand full of FRESH cannabis leaf and small lower buds for every carrot.

    Thanks Pendragon. That's gotta take a lot of leaves and small buds. You mean you are using 4-5 handfuls of leaves and small buds for just one drink a day?

    If you are into juicing I would buy a manual wheat grass juicer I picked one up on amazon years back for $25 shipped to my door. Also if you are looking into juicing what works for me is: when I harvest my budding plants I collect all of the greenest leaves left and juice approximately 2 grocery bags full of fan leaves and then pour the juice into ice cube trays and freeze them then I add three green ice cubes to my shake everyday. I also grow reg seeds so I juice all my male plants. Freezing the juice in ice cube trays helps keep it from going bad. I hope this helps

    manual wheat grass juicer :idea:

    thats what ya need..I saw my post said 50 to 1000 for a good grass juicer... 500 to 1000 minimum where as a manual is cheap but works very well to juice your grass.

    I hope it helps you too. It took me a year of juicing trial and error to figure out what works best for me.

    Be well.
