How Cannabis Can Help with Covid-19

Learn why CBD was determined to be a potential preventative agent for early-stage Covid infections.

Covid has been the topic on everyone’s mind since the start of the pandemic, more than two years ago. When it first began, most of us thought it would all be over in just a few short weeks, but we now know it is likely here to stay.

There is no foolproof way to protect yourself from contracting the virus. However, you can take a few precautions and things you can take to lessen the severity of the infection if you do get sick. CBD is one such medicine, and it carries no harmful side effects.

In a recent study using human beings, CBD was found to help protect people from catching the virus when taken in high-potency, pharmaceutical-grade doses. 

Researchers and academics at the University of Chicago have found a connection between Covid and 7-OH-CBD, a compound produced after the body processes CBD. Their research suggests “that CBD and its metabolite 7-OH-CBD can block SARS-Cov-2 infection at early and even later stages of infection.”

They found that after the virus enters the body, CBD helps inhibit viral gene expression and helps reverse many of the effects of Covid on host gene transcription. 

CBD was determined to be a potential preventative agent for early-stage Covid infections and warrants future clinical trials. Of course, only medical grade CBD is recommended for this purpose instead of edibles, inhalants, and topicals.

FLUENT carries the best CBD drops on the market, including Perla, an Indica-dominant low-THC strain known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. With no euphoric effects, it’s perfect for those looking to reap the benefits of medical cannabis without the head high.
