it's the last few months that several researches have been brought to light to help deal with the coronavirus pandemic, we have sifted through his studies for you in order to retain the main lines.
What if after hydroxychloroquine, questioned by the WHO, all eyes turned to cannabis?
As surprising as it may seem, Canadian researchers have just published a study claiming the benefits of the plant against the coronavirus
Inhibition of viral entry and hence spread are plausible therapeutic pathways.
Similar to other respiratory pathogens, SARS-CoV2 is transmitted by respiratory droplets, with potential for aerosol and contact spread.
According to their study, still uncertified, Canadian researchers have identified thirteen varieties of cannabis sativa that would not treat but prevent infection by the virus.
It utilizes receptor-mediated entry into the human host via angiotensin-converting enzyme II (ACE2) which is expressed in lung tissue, as well as oral and nasal mucosa, kidneys, testes and the gastrointestinal tract. Modulating ACE2 levels in these gateway tissues may prove a plausible strategy to decrease disease susceptibility.
Cannabis sativa , particularly a cannabinoid ( CBD ) anti - inflammatory cannabidiol-rich, has been proposed to modulate gene expression and inflammation and to harbor anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Working under Health Canada's research license, we have developed over 800 new lines and extracts of Cannabis sativa and hypothesized that high- CBD extracts of C. sativa could be used to modulate the expression of ACE2 in COVID-19 target tissues.Extracts from our most successful and innovative CBD-rich C. sativa lines, pending further investigation, may become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID -19
as adjunctive therapy . They can be used to develop easy-to-use preventative treatments in the form of mouthwashes and throat gargles for clinical and home use. These products should be tested for their potential to decrease viral entry via the oral mucosa.
Given the current disastrous and rapidly changing epidemiological situation, all possible therapeutic opportunities and avenues should be considered. Extracts from our most successful and innovative CBD-rich C. sativa lines, pending further investigation, may become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID-19 as both adjunctive and preventative therapy.
According to another study CBD can help against Coronavirus?
After screening more than 400 strains of cannabis, researchers at the University of Lethbridge are focusing on a dozen strains that show promise in providing less fertile ground for the coronavirus, biologist Igor Kovalchuk told the Calgary Herald.
The hypothesis that cannabis has the ability to modulate the receptors of our endocannabinoid system , so less virus enters the receptors and therefore prevents the spread
CBD shows that it can make people more resistant to the novel coronavirus.
CBD is not believed to be a cure for the coronavirus in humans, but it has many important properties that address the issues experienced by people who contract the disease, experts have said. CBD offers antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties . These are important for people who contract the coronavirus, feel nauseous, vomit and suffer from inflammation. Additionally, CBD is known to reduce stress and anxiety issues. All these properties are useful in the fight against disease.
CBDtech ensures that its CBD products are of the highest quality , made in France and tightly controlled by a seed-to-shelf strategy, which means that its hemp is certified organic and grown in Europe . It has Premium and Superior Quality, the company said in its recent corporate presentation. Its in-process extracts are rich in non-psychoactive phyto-cannabinoids and terpenoids. The product is certified (certification of good manufacturing practices)
