Cannabis extracts may help to prevent coronavirus, preliminary study suggests

Posted By: John Times Read: 225 Comments: 0

Canadian researchers are studying the potential for marijuana to be used to prevent coronavirus infections.

Researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Calgary are studying more than 400 strains of cannabis and have determined that at least a dozen may offer potential as part of treatments to prevent coronavirus from infecting a host.

According to the researchers, the effective strains have, in some instances, managed to reduce virus receptors, which reduces the chance for an individual to catch coronavirus.

"A number of them have reduced the number of these receptors by 73 per cent, the chance of it getting in is much lower," Dr Igor Kovalchuk told the Calgary Herald. "If they can reduce the number of receptors, there's much less chance of getting infected."https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/marijuana-coronavirus-prevention-weed-cannabis-covid-19-canada-study-a9521166.html
