Could cannabis put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic? Probably not. However, CBD (a byproduct of the cannabis plant) could prove to be a helpful medicinal tool to treat patients with the virus.
COVID-19 has been reported to cause inflammation in the lungs for those who contract the virus and show symptoms. This leads to troubled breathing, leaving many people stuck on ventilators fighting for every breath.
As reported by Natacha Larnaud, “experts from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are recommending that scientists study the anti-inflammatory properties in CBD as a potential treatment for lung inflammation caused by the coronavirus” (CBS News).
While CBD may not be able to specifically target the virus, it may help reduce inflammation for those who are infected, mitigating some of the symptoms.
With little known side-effects, CBD may be a viable option in helping fight the coronavirus.
