    I know this post is over a week old at this point but seeing as nobody has answered I figured it couldn't hurt.

    Juicing cannabis isn't unheard of, but it certainly wouldn't get you noticeably "high". The leaves, stalks, and even roots do contain some Cannabinoids (although not nearly as much as the glandular trichome heads) but in a raw plant, they would mainly be present in the form of non-psychoactive Cannabinoid Acids such as THC-A and CBD-A.

    Many people, so I've seen in various places, juice Cannabis for its potential medicinal values especially in regards to combating inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) and similar conditions. Cannabinoid acids are non-psychoactive but they do have some pharmacological properties. CBD-A, for example, has been shown to be a potent inhibitor of COX-2. COX-2 inhibition is how many non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) work. It would be an interesting way of using the waste material such as fan leaves, although I personally just compost mine.

    I imagine it probably wouldn't taste very good on its own :spew: Maybe mixed with some fruit...
