Leaf: The Health Benefits of Juicing Raw Cannabis

This video features the work of Dr. William Courtney, MD and the Cannabis International Foundation, an organisation that conducts and presents scientific studies on the Endogenous Cannabinoid System and Phytocannabinoids.

CI’s special interest and research focuses on the medicinal use of fresh, raw cannabis. The Foundation works to preserve strains with unique medicinal profiles.

It also educates patients, health professionals, courts, and elected officials, and to “restore safe access to cannabis worldwide in the name of public health”.

Amongst other tasks and responsibilities, Dr. Courtney is member of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine, the International Cannabinoid Research Society, the International Association of Cannabis as Medicine, and the Society of Clinical Cannabis. Dr. Courtney also teaches Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses in clinical cannabis.
