Can CBD help prevent and fight COVID-19, even in severe cases?
Researchers are still learning more each day about the seemingly magical powers of CBD and the cannabis plant. Recent findings have shown that:
- CBD specifically reduces lung inflammation. One study showed that CBD was able to reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.
- CBD is also shown to increase the production of interferons, a type of protein that activates immune cells and prevents viruses from replicating
- Another study indicated that CBD reduces pulmonary fibrosis, which is particularly significant.
Researchers at Augusta University led by Babak Baban, PhD, Department of Oral Biology and Diagnostic Sciences, DCG, DCG Center for Excellence in Research, performed a study proposing that:
- CBD could provide positive results for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) which is seen in severe patients of COVID-19 due to an overactive inflammatory response.
