Cannabis can help the symptoms caused by Coronavirus.
COVID And Cannabis. we already know the beneficial effects of our beloved plant. Some, during the lockdown, had even spread the rumor – untrue – that it could be the cure to the virus that is infesting the world.
Without exaggerating too much, and following only the science, what is emerging from the studies carried out in many parts of the world are that cannabis is proving to have some very interesting and worthwhile properties which could prove useful in the fight against COVID 19.
Studies in progress
A Canadian study is focusing on so-called cytokine storms, one of the symptoms of Covid-19 is that it causes inflammation, swelling, pain, and loss of organ function, which can cause the body’s cells to be killed by your own immune system.
One of the researchers, interviewed by Espresso, says that to conduct their laboratory research, they used active ingredients extracted directly from self-produced cannabis plants, using about 400 different varieties with different levels of cannabinoids and terpenoids.
And the results recorded possible beneficial effects for the virus to have less chance of infecting us. In addition, some specific cannabis strains would be excellent in reducing inflammation and preventing the development of the cytokine storm. In short, these are excellent news, which must be investigated.
The fact scholars and scientists around the world are also testing cannabis as an ally in the fight against Coronavirus, makes us understand that the medicinal properties of cannabis may be greater than first thought.
In Israel, there is more than one study suggesting that a combination of CBD with terpenes can be really effective in curing some effects of the virus on the human body and in particular on cytokine storms.
Despite the prejudices of the usual suspects, research on this topic is developing in-depth.
The future is in cannabis
What I would like to say after reading, reading these so complex studies, is that there is really a need to continue researching because the potential of cannabis is many, and much of its potential is as yet unexplored.
The virus found us unprepared but now that we know it better, and whilst waiting for a vaccine (free and universal), it is right to use all the tools available to us to stem its power, such as CBD. which is based on a natural substance that we produce ourselves. What could be better?.
