Does Cannabis cure Covid 19
Many people are wondering if cannabis can cure Covid 19.
I have Covid-19 and finding cannabis extremely helpful. I vape it and haven’t changed consumption methods, though the vapor from my dab was a bit rough at first. After that passed, I ended up in a lot of relief in my lungs as well as the other forms of relief typical of cannabis.
“While I believe strongly in the therapeutic potential of many natural products
and am confident the results of this study provide a promising avenue for further research into CBD to mitigate the harm of COVID-19, the last thing I want to see is people running to a local dispensary. Until we have obtained clinical evidence, it is premature and will likely have no benefit, or could even potentially cause harm in some cases,” Pauli said.
This isn’t the first time cannabis has been investigated as a prevention and treatment strategy for a coronavirus. Earlier research has looked at the drug’s effect on SARS-CoV, the coronavirus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, which caused an outbreak in 2003. In a 2007 study, researchers from China examined the antiviral properties of cannabis against SARS-CoV.
There is currently no evidence that cannabis can cure Covid 19.
So, is it right to say that cannabis can be used to treat COVID-19? No, not yet. While the hypothesis makes sense, and preliminary results are good, it is still far too early to say definitively that cannabis or its components are effective at fighting the cause or symptoms of the disease and whether they outperform competing therapies. Preliminary results in models of the disease in cell culture or animal models can never be assumed to translate to efficacy in human patients without further trials. It will likely take at least six months, if not a year, before medicines from leading companies such as Tetra-Bio Pharma progress to late-stage clinical trials and further to market. Some people are using Moringa Powder
an all natural no CBD, no THC approach.
To assert that cannabis or cannabinoids can be used as a treatment for COVID-19, it is necessary for the medicines to be shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms or presence of the virus in a large and diverse group of patients who have COVID-19. To date, this has not occurred.
Firstly, there is solid reasoning behind the hypothesis that cannabis and its constituent cannabinoids like CBD and THC could be used to treat the symptoms of COVID-19. Key to the hypothesis is the fact that the deaths associated with the virus are thought to occur in large part due to the body’s own immune response being overly reactive. When the body has this overreacting immune system, such as in severe cases of COVID-19, the resulting inflammation can harm the body’s own tissues, such as lung tissue where respiratory failure can occur.
Covid 19 is caused by a mutation in the COVID gene.
COVID-19 is caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2. It is part of the coronavirus family, which include common viruses that cause a variety of diseases from head or chest colds to more severe (but more rare) diseases like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
The mutation on the Alpha variant is on the spike protein, which helps the virus infect its host. This is what COVID-19 vaccines target. These vaccines make antibodies against many parts of the spike protein, so it's unlikely that a single new mutation in the Alpha variant will make the vaccine less effective.
Alpha (B.1.1.7). In late 2020, experts noted gene mutations in COVID-19 cases seen in people in southeastern England. This variant has since been reported in other countries, including the U.S. Scientists estimate that these mutations could make the virus up to 70% more transmissible, meaning it could spread more easily. Some research has linked this variant to a higher risk of death, but the evidence isn't strong.
