New Study Shows CBD Might Block COVID-19!
Wear a mask … stay six feet apart … take CBD?
That may soon become the latest health directive following a breakthrough test conducted in Canada.
In the test, researchers determined that CBD may be effective in blocking the cells that enter the body from the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In other words, taking CBD, or Cannabidiol, could significantly lower your risk of getting the Coronavirus. The study is currently being peer reviewed.
Lead researcher Dr. Igor Kovalchuk indicated that in some instances the study indicated that CBD extracts reduced the virus receptors by 73%!
Here’s what he said in a press release:
"A number of them (the CBD extracts) have reduced the number of these (virus) receptors by 73 percent, the chance of it (COVID-19) getting in is much lower. If they can reduce the number of receptors, there’s much less chance of getting infected.”
In addition, study data indicated CBD may be able to change the body’s ACE2 levels and even down-regulate serine protease TMPRSS2, which is another protein critical for COVID-19 to enter host cells and spread throughout the body.
It was conducted in April in Alberta, Canada, and the results were published in May in the peer journal Preprints. The study, which was entitled “In Search of Preventative Strategies: Novel Anti-Inflammatory High-CBD Cannabis Sativa Extracts Modulate ACE2 Expression in COVID-19 Gateway Tissues” was performed through a partnership between Pathway Rx, a company that develops cannabis therapies to treat specific diseases, and Swysh Inc., a cannabinoid-based oral health company.
In the study, researchers looked at artificial 3D models of oral, airway (lung) and intestinal tissues coupled with a limited sample of high CBD Cannabis sativa extracts to modulate ACE2 gene expression and ACE2 protein levels.
The results indicated hemp extracts high in CBD may help block proteins that provide a “gateway” for COVID-19 to enter host cells.
Kovalchuk said in the press release:
“Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) has been generally accepted by the scientific community as a receptor required for the entry of SARS-CoV-2 into human cells. Our initial findings warrant further investigation but it’s possible that medical cannabis products could become a safe adjunct therapy for the treatment of COVID-19.”
The study results are truly exciting news for those concerned about contracting COVID-19 and experiencing the many negative health affects that it has been reported to cause.
According to the American Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a COVID-19 infection can result in the following symptoms:
The most recent statistics indicate that there have been 6,047,656 cases globally and 367,172 deaths.
Health experts recommend that you do the following things to lessen your chances of contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19):
Sarah’s Blessing of London offers a variety of high quality CBD products, all made with full spectrum CBD.
CBD isolate only contains CBD while full spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids in the hemp plant.
Preclinical data is clear on this one – multiple cannabinoids are much more effective at relieving pain than a single cannabinoid.
Researchers believe the reason for this is that cannabinoids work together to produce stronger, more beneficial effects.
These other cannabinoids also produce beneficial health effects themselves so by increasing the number you are receiving you will also naturally increase the health benefits you enjoy.
Sarah’s Blessing CBD is also grown in Switzerland, which has quickly become known for producing the highest quality CBD. The CBD in Sarah’s Blessing’s products is organic, alcohol-free, pesticide-free and non-GMO.
