A team of scientists at the University of Lethbridge that partnered with Pathway Rx Inc., a Canadian company dedicated to the development of custom cannabis therapies, and Swysh Inc., anAlberta based Research and Development company that specialises in cannabinoid based research, have discovered that sativa extracts, specifically thosehigh in CBD show great potential as a treatment for COVID-19.
Dr. Igor (CEO of Pathway RX) and Dr. Olga Kovalchuk of the University of Lethbridge reported“While our most successful extracts require further validation in a large-scale analysis and an animal model, our study is crucial for the future analysis of the effects of medical cannabis on COVID-19”.
CBD and the Immune System
The health benefits of CBD have been examined for decades. Studies carried out in 2009 into the functions of cannabinoid receptors (specifically CB1 and CB2) have found that endocannabinoids play a key role in the regulation and control of the CNS (Central Nervous System),and in maintaining communication with the Immune System.
What Does This Mean?
Unfortunately, it does not mean that CBD is “the cure for covid-19”. However, the results of both the recent studies and studies carried out over 10 years ago remain consistent in that CBD can help maintain and regulate the immune system. Maintaining the immune system in the battle against covid-19 is vital.
