The Surprising Benefits Of Raw Cannabis Edibles

Anyone who has ever made space cakes will know that you can’t just chuck a load of bud into your mix and eat it raw, as cannabis needs to be heated before it can get you stoned. Increasing the temperature sparks a chemical reaction known as decarboxylation, resulting in the formation of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids. For this reason, most recipes for cannabis edibles will require some form of cooking, such as baking in the oven or the heating of weed in oil. However, what many people don’t know is that non-decarboxylated marijuana actually contains a number of highly beneficial compounds that aren’t present in cooked, smoked or vaped cannabis.

Despite the fact that marijuana is pretty much synonymous with THC and CBD, it doesn’t actually contain very much of these cannabinoids at all in its raw form. Instead, natural bud is loaded with plant acids such as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). It is the application of high temperatures during smoking, vaping or baking that converts these compounds into THC and CBD, by facilitating the removal of a carboxylic acid group. This means that eating raw cannabis won’t get you high, but it will give you a chance to experience the effects of cannabinoid plant acids – and you may be surprised by just how therapeutic these can be. Medical cannabis patient and activist Sarah Godfrey, for example, has managed to survive a terminal Crohn’s disease diagnosis thanks to marijuana, and told Seedsman that “I personally believe that cannabinoid plant acids…
