COVID-19 Infection: Nature Experts Say Cannabis Compounds Can Prevent COVID-19 Infection.
Nature experts have said that Cannabis contains compounds that can prevent COVID-19 infection.
This claim is contained in a laboratory study published in the Journal of Nature Products.
According to the journal, these compounds prevent the viruses that cause COVID-19 from penetrating the immune body cells.
These compounds are called Cannabigerolic acid or CBGA and Cannabidiolic acid, or CBDA.
Researchers from the Oregon State University also said that these compounds can be found in hemp.
The efficacy of these compounds was carried out to further research chemicals to fight COVID-19.
According to Bloomberg, these components unite to increase the proteins in the virus. This is to block the pathogen the virus takes to infect people.
The potency of these compounds was tested against two COVID-19 variants. These variants are the Alpha and Beta variants.
What was absent in the study
The study did not give any information about recommending the supplements to people.
The study failed to address the efficacy of the infected people who have used it.
It also did not address the efficacy of those who did not use it.
Richard van Breeman, a researcher with Oregon State’s Global Hemp Innovation Center said these components could prevent and treat the infection by SARS-CoV-2.
He said: “These compounds can be taken orally and have a long history of safe use in humans.
“They have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.”
