Discovery of effective substance against cannabis 19 in cannabis
CHICAGO (Reuters) – U.S. scientists have discovered a substance in the cannabis plant that prevents the novel Corona virus, which causes the global epidemic “Covid 19”, from invading.
It should be noted that various observations on thousands of people over the past year have shown that people who use cannabis or cannabis-containing drugs were less likely to be infected with the corona virus than others.
On this basis, experts concluded that cannabis must have an ingredient that is effective against the corona virus.
To find out, a team of experts at the University of Chicago, Illinois, isolated the key compound found in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), and coronated it on “epithelial cells” taken from human lungs. Tried with a virus.
They observed that with very small amounts of CBD in just 2 hours, the corona virus entered the cells, but even after 48 hours, the virus increased its number in these cells and began to invade and Couldn’t hurt them.
The same experiments were repeated on other compounds found in the cannabis plant, but those compounds performed very little against the corona virus.
It should be noted that the medical properties of CBD are not a new discovery at all, but in various previous investigations this compound has been shown to be effective against many other dangerous viruses.
That is why “CBD” was considered important in the effectiveness of cannabis against the corona virus. Now, after recent experiments, this idea has been confirmed.
The details of this research were published a few days ago on a pre-print server called “BioArchive”.
Note that so far no regular medical research journal (Medical Research Journal) has approved this research for publication, so it can be called promising research but can not be called “certified”.
