CBD in the fight against COVID-19 – what the research says

CBD blocks the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in the lungs.

One study made by a group of US researchers, showed that the CBD compound blocks the reproduction and spread of SARS-CoV-2 in lung cells. For the study, scientists used lung cancer cells that had been injected with naturally isolated, non-synthetic cannabidiol. What is important is that the CBD dose was given prior to COVID-19 infection. After two days of the dose the researchers reported the result of the study which were positively surprising. The analysis showed that the CBD compound can stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in human body. Cells that had received a dose of CBD and were infected with the virus showed a viral reverse. Researchers emphasize that CBD works after infection with the virus as well, what is important mainly for people who have already contracted an infectious disease such as COVID-19. CBD acts on the infected body by stopping viral genes from spreading. Moreover, this compound also influences the stabilization of the intracellular signaling pathway which is responsible for the diagnosis of infection. CBD with a minimum purity of 97% was used for the study, which can be guaranteed by, for example, our Hemp Crystal.

CBD in the fight against COVID-19 – more research.

Another study from 2020 also found that CBD could have a positive outcome in fighting with COVID-19 infection. In this case, the study showed that the use of cannabidiol helps increase oxygen levels in the lungs. In addition, CBD also helps to minimize inflammation and damage in the lungs, which is caused, among others, by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The analysis showed that this is possible thanks to CBD’s effect on increasing the level of apelin, one of the natural peptides responsible for minimizing inflammation. During viral and contamination, blood levels of apelin are low. However, it increases up to 20 times after applying CBD. This discovery started another study where scientists focused on the relationship between apelin and the body’s immune response, and CBD. In an animal model, subjects with COVID-19-like symptoms have been shown to normalize apelin and immune responses following treatment with CBD. Importantly, after such treatment, an increase in the level of oxygen in the lungs was also noted.
