Have You Ever Tried a Cannabis Juice Cleanse?

With another sunny summer around the corner, many are looking to get into top health. If you have already failed your New Year’s resolution of working out regularly, maybe juicing is next on your list.

According to some, taking a multiple day juice cleanse is a great way to remove toxins from the body. It is common for people to end up feeling sluggish and low on energy after a while due to poor diet and exercise. Perhaps a juice cleanse is the perfect solution for rebooting our bodies.

Others claim that juicing is a waste of time, as it does not detoxify the body at all. Regardless what the facts are, many people are looking to try a multi-day juice cleanse.

Giving up all of that tasty food may be difficult enough. Taking a break from cannabis as well may be undesirable for many. Marijuana is an organic plant, so it seems natural to create the first ever juice cleanse/marijuana strain pairing.

Juicing: The Pros

People typically either juice to fast or to cleanse. For many, juicing may be a healthy and fun way to have a short low-calorie diet for a few days. As the spring comes to an end, a juice fast could be a great way to lose a few extra pounds.

Many claim that juicing has the ability to cleanse out toxins from the body. If you find yourself that you are stuck in a sluggish routine that is highly dependent on junk food or caffeine, a juice cleanse can be a conscious decision you make to break your routine riddled with monotony and low energy.

Juicing may help people shrink their stomach after a few days, which may in the long term lead to smaller meal sizes. After a couple days of my own juice cleanse, I was surprised as to how much my appetite was curbed. Many people may simply return back to old habits after completing the cleanse, but it is possible to change your typical eating patterns after returning from juicing.

Many expensive juicers on the market are great for extracting nutrient-rich juice, as they remove a lot of the biomass which is less rich in nutrients. While many of these juicers remove a lot of the fiber, the juice left behind is dense in nourishing minerals and nutrients.

Juicing: The Cons

Many doctors claim that juicing is not necessary or helpful. A professor and chairman of the department of medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles says that our bodies have built-in detoxifiers, which implies that we shouldn’t need to cleanse on our own.

Many people say that the weight lost while on a juicing diet is simply water weight and will not be sustained for extended periods of time.

Also, there does not seem to be any scientific evidence that juicing actually provides any detox benefits.

Tips for Effective Juicing

Before starting your juice cleanse, it is often good to ease into the diet by drinking lots of water and reducing junk food, caffeine, and alcohol a few days prior to starting.

While juicing, it is also important to pay attention to your body and not to push yourself too hard physically. After a couple of days, you might feel a little weak or light headed at times. Your energy levels may be a bit different as well, so consider doing lighter active workouts than usual.

Adding Cannabis to the Mix

While going through a juice cleanse, it is important to properly manage stress and anxiety levels. Many may find cannabis helpful for relaxing and calming down during the cleanse, allowing the body, mind, and soul to be at peace.

The juicing period can also be a time for personal reflection, which often can be guided by marijuana. Often times, cannabis puts me in an introspective state that allows for me to re-evaluate where I am at in my life and what changes I want to make. Take this opportunity to strive to improve other aspects of your life as well.

Activities such as walking, hiking, meditating, or writing in a journal are great for personal reflection. Cannabis pairs well with these activities, whether you are looking to be inspired by nature or finding your inner creativity.

Day 1: Morning (Greener Cleaner/Jack the Ripper)

Before starting the juice cleanse, you might as well wake and bake with some Jack the Ripper. This sativa will pack a punch of energy that will wake you up to start your day.

Also, the lemony scent will match perfectly with your first juice, which also contains lemons. Jack the Ripper also contains amounts of THCV, which is an appetite suppressant.

To start off the first day of the cleanse, we present with the Greener Cleaner Detox Juice. This juice contains apples, which are great for detoxing and provide natural sweetness.

Day 1 Morning

Kale is a superfood known for being high in vitamins and minerals and also helps prevent cancer. Swiss chard is packed with antioxidants. Also, lemon juice is great for mornings and helps boost your immune system.

  • 1 green apple (cored)
  • 3 to 4 stals of kale
  • 2 stals of Swiss chard
  • 1/2 to 1 lemon (rind removed)

Day 1: Afternoon (Cooling Quencher/Space Queen)

Might as well start the afternoon off right with a blissful and uplifting hybrid strain. Space Queen is great for bringing in the good vibes.

Day 1 Afternoon

Now you are ready to try a refreshing juice that is primarily watermelon based. Watermelon gets its red color from lycopene, which is known for helping with cardiovascular diseases and prostate cancer.

  • 1/4 small watermelon
  • 1 lime (Rind removed)
  • 1 to 2 handfuls of basil or mint

Day 1: Evening (Alkaline Dreaming/Master Kush)

Nearing the end of day 1 of your cleanse, you most likely will be surprised with how much energy you have. You made it through the first day, and now you are ready to relax. Nothing will calm you down like the sedation provided by some Master Kush. This indica will certainly leave you calm and relaxed for the night.

Day 1 Evening

For “dinner”, the Alkaline Dreaming Green Juice is a great nighttime tonic. The romaine and celery help induce a deep sleep. Some say the lemons also provide alkalinizing properties, but this does not seem to be backed by science. Nonetheless, this recipe will provide for a tasty juice with plenty of nutrients.

  • 1/2 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 lemon (rind removed)
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 of a cucumber
  • a handful of cilantro (or parsley)

Day 2: Morning (Orange You Awake/Orange Crush)

If you thought getting through day 1 would be challenging, get ready for day 2! We have a list of juices and strains that will jumpstart your morning and keep you calm and collected throughout the whole day.

To start the morning of your cannabis juice cleanse off right, take in a whiff of the aroma of Orange Crush. This strain is quite energetic for a hybrid, which makes it great for starting off your day.

Day 2 Morning

The juice for this morning is packed high with oranges and carrots, providing plenty of Vitamin C and beta-carotene. With a name like Orange You Awake, you know that this zesty blend will certainly get your own juices flowing.

  • 1 orange (rind removed)
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 green apple (cored)
  • 1 lime (rind removed)

Day 2: Afternoon (Kiwi Express/Sour Diesel)

By this point in the day, you are starting to get pretty hungry and might be a little low on energy. Picking the wrong strain could potentially give you the munchies and leave you knocked out. We recommend trying some of the classic strain, Sour Diesel.

Sour Diesel is an invigorating sativa, which will help you get through the rest of the day. Also, Sour Diesel has lots of alpha humulene, which helps reduce hunger. Since many strains often give the munchies, choosing one high in alpha humulene may help avoid the munchies.

Day 2 Afternoon

The juice for this afternoon, Kiwi Express, is bursting with kiwi, which provides even more Vitamin C and plenty of antioxidants. The kiwi also provides a unique sweet flavor that is quite tasty.

  • 2-3 peeled kiwis
  • 1 green apple (cored)
  • 3 handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 lemon (peeled)

Day 2: Evening (Sweet Tempered Greens/Platinum OG)

To round off the end of day 2, we recommend trying some Platinum OG. This indica-dominant strain is packed full of the terpene myrcene, which is what is mainly responsible for making some strains so sedating.

Day 2 Evening

This Sweet Tempered Greens juice is packed with baby bok choy, which is full of nutritious vitamins and minerals. The spinach will help cleanse your body and also helps regenerate cells, blood, and the respiratory system.

  • 3 baby bok choy
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2-3 handfuls of spinach
  • a handful of parsley
  • a handful of mint (or basil)

Day 3: Morning (Sweet Coalescence/Strawberry Cough)

Now that you have made it to day 3, the end of the cleanse is in clear sight. Congratulate yourself on your progress by smoking some Strawberry Cough. You will be surprised that this strain actually smells and tastes like strawberries, making it a great pairing with your morning juice.

Day 3 Morning

For the last day of the cleanse, we start off with the most summer-inspired juice of them all. This Sweet Coalescence
Cleansing Juice is full of strawberries, which contain anthocyanins that are helpful for burning stored fat and boosting short-term memory.

  • 1 green apple (cored)
  • 1 large handful of strawberries
  • 1 lemon (rind removed)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 inch piece of ginger

Day 3: Afternoon (Feel the Beet/Animal Cookies)

The afternoon is typically snack time, so feel free to try some Animal Cookies. Of course, we mean the marijuana strain! You are almost done with the juice cleanse, so stay strong until the finish.

Animal Cookies provides a full-bodied and relaxing high that will leave you feeling calm throughout the afternoon. This hybrid will leave you feeling upbeat throughout your day.

Day 3 Afternoon

With the Feel the Beet Detox Juice, your liver will be feeling upbeat as well. Beets are high in the antioxidant betaine, which flushes the liver, helps balance the mood, and can help with mental clarity.

  • 2 to 3 stalks of Swiss chard
  • 1/2 lemon (rind removed)
  • 1/2 red beet
  • 1 apple (cored)
  • 1 whole lime (peeled)

Day 3: Evening (Long Life Elixir/God’s Gift)

Wrapping up the juice cleanse, we suggest ending the night with some God’s Gift. This indica strain will bless you with a euphoric head high that slowly turns into a full on body high. Consider this a gift for your dedication to the cleanse.

Day 3 Evening

The last juice of the cleanse is the Long Life Elixir Green Juice. This juice combines the hydrating and cooling properties of cucumber and celery with the calming effects of romaine.

  • 1/2 green apple
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 head of romaine lettuce
  • handful of cilantro

This completes our cannabis juice cleanse detox with strain pairings. If you are going to try the 3 day juice cleanse, make sure to drink enough water throughout the day. Feel free to dilute all of these juices with water, if needed.
