Study suggest CBD may help fight Covid-19

We know there is a lot of junk online these days about what is and isn’t good for fighting Covid-19. While we are not making any medical claims about our product, we did find this article interesting and worth sharing with you.

“Their study led them to hypothesize that those extracts high in CBD could be leveraged to combat Covid-19 infections by modulating levels of ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme II) in certain “gateway” tissues.

These include lung tissue, oral/nasal mucosa, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, and testes. The researchers believe that modulating ACE2 levels in these areas with CBD could help to decrease people’s susceptibility to Covid-19. As the coronavirus can only enter a human host with a receptor, i.e. ACE2, targeting these could reduce the risk of infection significantly.

The study has yet to be peer reviewed and verified, but the team believes that these sativa lines could be used to develop such preventive treatments as mouthwashes or “throat-gargle” solutions.

“Given the current dire and evolving epidemiological situation, every possible therapeutic opportunity and avenue must be considered”, the team concluded.”
