Cannabis Sativa vs COVID-19

Sounds promising -

"Based on our preliminary data, extracts of novel efficacious C. sativa lines, pending further
investigations, may become a useful addition to the treatment of COVID-19."

" Application was intended to model medical delivery, such as local mouth wash applications, encapsulated extracts and dosed oils, and inhalers or nebulizers"

"Working under the Health Canada research license, we have developed over 800 new Cannabis sativa lines and extracts and hypothesized that high-CBD C. sativa extracts may be used to modulate ACE2 expression in COVID-19 target tissues. Screening C. sativa extracts using artificial human 3D models of oral, airway, and intestinal tissues, we identified 13 high CBD C. sativa extracts that modulate ACE2 gene expression and ACE2 protein levels. Our initial data suggest that some C. sativa extract down-regulate serine protease TMPRSS2, another critical protein required for SARS-CoV2 entry into host cells. While our most effective extracts require further large-scale validation, our study is crucial for the future analysis of the effects of medical cannabis on COVID-19. The extracts of our most successful and novel high CBD C. sativa lines, pending further investigation, may become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID-19 as an adjunct therapy. They can be used to develop easy-to-use preventative treatments in the form of mouthwash and throat gargle products for both clinical and at-home use. Such products ought to be tested for their potential to decrease viral entry via the oral mucosa. Given the current dire and rapidly evolving epidemiological situation, every possible therapeutic opportunity and avenue must be considered."

The debate is that we are seeing some viable solutions to combat Covid 19, but THC products are still not available to the public due to laws and regulations.

If this has been shown to help people, they should have access to it.

Even occasional smoking of marijuana increases the risk of more serious complications of the disease caused by the coronavirus. Smoking cannabis produces a kind of inflammatory process in the respiratory tract similar to bronchitis. Because the main sign of COVID-19 is a dry cough, it can easily be mistaken for a cough caused by smoking marijuana, making it difficult to diagnose. If you have a cannabis business, make sure customers know the risks involved. parsl.co can help make the process of buying cannabis more responsible for customers
