There are many other foods that contain cannabinoids, which are the feel-good ingredients in cannabis. Therefore, you can enjoy the medicinal and therapeutic properties of these ingredients by consuming other foods instead of smoking weed.
Here are those 5 foods:
Coneflower – Echinacea. This drink boosts the immune system, and stimulates the CB2 receptors in the brain which calm the mind and relax the body.
Black Truffles – (Tuber Melansoporum) These delicious desserts provide a natural high by creating anandamide in the body.
Black Pepper – Piper Nigrum, or black pepper, is a rich source of beta-caryophyllene (BCP), which is the molecule responsible for its strong and rich scent and acts in the same way as cannabinoids. It also has powerful therapeutic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Cacao – Theobroma cacao, the building block of fine chocolate, is high in FAAH, which breaks down the endocannabinoid called anandamide, and provides a natural rush of its version of THC in the body.
Kava – Piper methysticum. This plant is often added to medicinal teas and is popular among the people in the island of Fiji. It has been used for centuries in order to reduce cravings and treat anxiety. Its root is boiled for the preparation of a drink that binds to CB1 receptors in the brain.
Try some of these and enjoy the potent properties of cannabinoids!
