Green drinks just a got a little greener. For decades, health nuts have touted the benefits of juicing raw leafy greens, fruits and vegetables to increase vitamin intake and boost immune systems.

Cannabis enthusiasts are no different, claiming that green drinks made with raw cannabis leaves, raw buds or tinctures can relieve everything from stress, to pain, to inflammation — they just won't get you high.

As with most recipes, the fresher the ingredients, the better. If you don't have access to fresh leaves, substitutes will work. Whatever you do, don't use dried marijuana leaves or buds. Now plug in that blender and try these summer smoothie recipes that we found in The Stoner's Cookbook, Leafly and the High Times Cannabis Cookbook.

Chill in the refrigerator before serving or serve immediately over ice.
