Coronavirus Outbreak Creates a New Normal
What Many Thought Would Be Trends for the Future Are Reality Now – Including Using CBD as a Major Component in the Treatment of a Variety of Conditions
The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, has certainly changed the world in which we live.
Masks and social distancing have become a regular part of life. The Coronavirus has also sped up three specific trends and turned them from “one day soon” to “right now.”
Those trends are Telehealth, Telecommuting and taking Cannabidiol, or CBD, for better health.
All three of these things have grown quickly in prominence and are now on the verge of becoming regular parts of life.
Take Telehealth, for instance. Before the Coronavirus very few people (including just 8% of Americans) had met with doctors via the phone or online streaming video.
Now many practitioners in the states are reporting that 95% of their visits are “virtual.”
Telemedicine, which is defined as a visit between a patient and a health care provider by telephone, smartphone, tablet or computer, is one part of Telehealth.
Other parts can include at-home monitoring and physician to physician consults.
Telehealth has become popular during the COVID-19 Pandemic because it reduces the need for patients to go to a doctor’s office or the emergency room.
However, now experts are saying that Telehealth has proven to be so attractive to people that it will become routine as we move forward and gain control over the Coronavirus.
Another trend that many say will stay around long after this pandemic is telecommuting.
With people confined to their homes during the Coronavirus Outbreak, the use of telecommuting soared.
The benefits of this work style immediately became apparent and now experts are saying it will also likely stay around after the pandemic is finally over.
Benefits of telecommuting include:
In addition to the two trends we mentioned, another trend has emerged and that is using CBD as a first line treatment both against numerous health conditions as well as to protect good health.
Why has CBD become so popular?
For one thing, numerous studies are being conducted to determine its effectiveness against viruses like COVID-19.
Many scientists have expressed the belief that it may reduce a person’s chances of getting COVID-19 by lowering the number of virus receptors.
A study in Canada entitled “In Search of Preventative Strategies: Novel Anti-Inflammatory High-CBD Cannabis Sativa Extracts Modulate ACE2 Expression in COVID-19 Gateway Tissues” found that CBD may reduce the number of virus receptors by up to 73 percent.
For another thing, CBD has already been shown in a variety of different studies to have wide-ranging health benefits. For example:
All of these benefits, along with CBD’s possible benefits against COVID-19 and other viruses, have made taking it a regular part of many people’s health routines.
CBD is a chemical compound that is found in the cannabis plant. There are basically two types of cannabis – marijuana and hemp.
Marijuana is high in Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is also known as THC. This is the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” when people smoke or consume marijuana.
Like CBD, THC is a cannabinoid. There are over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant with CBD and THC being the most well known.
Marijuana is high in THC and lower in CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, is just the opposite – it is high in CBD and lower in THC. In fact, hemp by definition cannot contain more than .3% of THC. For comparison’s sake, marijuana typically contains between 3% and 12% THC with some specially developed strains containing as much as 30% THC.
