Do cucumbers need to be peeled before blasting?

If so, why? I have a Nutribullet Rx. Can the blade/motor be damaged if you don't peel them? The prep chart says to peel them, but I don't understand why. The Rx seems like it should be able to handle the skin just fine.

The extraction prep chart says to leave the peel on IF ORGANIC and take off if NOT organic. Cucumbers are on the dirty dozen, meaning that if not washed well or are bought conventional then they contain a higher amount of pesticides.
