Will Juicing Fresh Cannabis Juice Get You High?

Decarboxylation is necessary to convert the active chemical component THCA into THC. The process of decarboxylation is done using high levels of heat. THC is what produces the psychoactive effects so often associated with using cannabis products. Since juicing raw cannabis does not include the additional step of decarboxylation, it will not get you high.
