Can Cannabis Save the World from the Covid-19 Virus?

Cannabis covid

Could it be that after all this time; fear and panic, lockdowns, mandates, furloughs, shutdowns, testing, overfilled hospitals, long lines at the grocery store, social distancing, super spreader events, protest, hand sanitizer, social media arguments, and double masking, that cannabis has been waiting in the corner of the ring all along, for scientists all over the world to finally tag it in the matchup against the deadliest pandemic of our time? 

Could be. 

According to our sources, new research suggests that compounds found in cannabis can prevent the virus from penetrating healthy human cells. One Bloomberg Business article states that the two compounds tested, CBGA & CBDA, are commonly found in hemp. 

“In the lab, studies show they bound to the spike proteins found in the virus and block the key step in the infection process. It’s early days in the research, though. The study did it involve giving the supplements to people or comparing infection rates with a control group.”

The cannabis world embraces this mission as if Mama Nature of herself was giving the world the Go ahead to heal itself. And we’re all about healing the world right?
