Why Marijuana Is Great To Use During A Cleanse

Improbably enough, yes, marijuana intoxication may be compatible with your detox.

Cleansing is one of those buzzwords that means everything and nothing. But, to the extent it has any medical meaning, cleansing implies purging yourself of “free radicals,” highly reactive molecules that cause oxidative stress on the body, which can weaken or even kill cells in such vital organs as the heart, lungs, and brain. Oxidative stress can impede the immune system and damage DNA. It may be responsible for some of the effects of aging and even cause cancer.

Poor diet promotes oxidative stress, so does smoking, drinking alcohol, and exposure to other toxins—hence the case for the occasional detox.

Where does cannabis fit in here? Free radicals are combated by antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Beta-carotene—and, now apparently, THC, which a clinical study has been shown to be more powerful than the most well known antioxidant, Vitamin C.

Of course, smoked cannabis puts a whole bunch of clinically certified crud into your body. But at least you can be reassured that the oxidative stress that pot is inducing, is also being combatted by its antioxidant powers.
