CBD shows potential in treatment of Covid-19 related symptoms – Independent Online

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to rise rapidly globally, many are waiting and hoping for treatments to be developed that might treat, cure or prevent the potentially deadly disease.

In a surprising turn of events, cannabis has also shown potential in the treatment of Covid-19 related symptoms.

There have been several different ways researchers have suggested CBD might help, including its ability to reduce ACE2 expression and pro-inflammatory cytokine production to fight lung inflammation, and it’s potential as an antiviral.

Various research is underway to discover treatments that may slow down the effects of Covid-19 and manage the symptoms. A newly published peer-reviewed study by Rossi et al. in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, has found that the endocannabinoid system could play a role in reducing inflammation caused by the virus.

Now new evidence is supporting the theory that cannabis-derived CBD may help those suffering from the severe lung inflammation that occurs in more serious cases of Covid-19.
