With the CBD Explode in popularityNew studies continue to reveal its potential benefits.
A new study published in the journal The Aging of the United States It was reported that cannabis that is high in CBD has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties and may help reduce symptoms of COVID.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis that is legal in all 50 states.
“Cannabis sativa, especially those high in cannabinoids. Cannabinoids have been found to alter gene expression and inflammation and harbor anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties,” Health Canada researchers concluded.
As such, they say that certain CBD extracts “may become a useful and safe addition to the prevention / treatment of COVID-19 as an adjuvant.”
The researchers hypothesized that high CBD sativa extracts could be used to reduce downregulation of ACE2 expression in COVID-19 target tissues. Using artificial 3D human models of oral, airway, and intestinal tissues, they identified 13 high-extracts of CBD C. sativa that reduced ACE2 protein levels. Some serine sativa extract TMPRSS2, another important protein required for SARS-CoV-2 to enter host cells.
This is not the first study to suggest that CBD can fight respiratory diseases like COVID.
In April 2020, researchers at the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute A. Peer reviewed article This indicates that CBD could be included in the treatment regimen for the COVID-19 coronavirus as both THC and CBD appear to reduce the acute lung inflammation associated with the virus.
In July 2020, researchers at the College of Dental Medicine of Georgia and College of Medicine of Georgia I found early clues Cannabidiol, or CBD, may help reduce the cytokine storm and excessive pneumonia that has killed many COVID-19 patients.
“Our laboratory studies indicate that pure CBD can help the lungs recover from the overwhelming inflammation, or cytokine storm, caused by the COVID-19 virus, and restore healthy oxygen levels in the body,” says co-author Dr. Jack Yu, MD. Scientist and Head of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at MCG.
In October 2020, the same research group published a follow-up Peer review study Determine which mechanism they believe was responsible for the encouraging results of using CBD to reduce lung inflammation.
“One way that CBD appears to reduce the ‘cytokine storm’ that devastates the lungs and kills many patients with COVID-19 is by enabling increased levels of a natural peptide called Apelin, which is known to reduce inflammation and significantly lower levels. The storm, They are over.
While this is incredibly encouraging news for COVID relief, it is the companies that are selling CBD foods Oils are not permitted to mention these benefits in advertisements because the Food and Drug Administration has not formally approved them for any specific treatment. Apparently, there is nothing wrong with advertising experimental vaccines but natural plant extracts are not.
The new study above is just another study that indicates that hemp and CBD can help fight cancer. There have been many studies as well as countless confirmed anecdotal accounts.
In 2018, a 44-year-old British mother refused chemotherapy for aggressive, triple-negative breast cancer. She chose CBD oil instead and she was Declared cancer free Five months later.
More recently, a Colorado State University study showed this Cannabidiol extract can slow down growth and kill cancer cells In aggressive brain cancer.
“Our experiments have shown that CBD slows the growth of cancer cells and is toxic to both dog and human glioblastoma cell lines,” said Chase Gross, PhD student involved in the study. “Importantly, the differences in the anticancer effect between isolate and CBD extract appear minimal.”
That’s not all, the CBD has shown that it can treat a variety of other diseases such as: arthritisAnd SeizuresChronic pain, high blood pressureAnd Alzheimer’s disease And more than that – with few of the severe side effects common with the flagship drugs.
Big Pharma hopes that no more people discover natural remedies for common health issues, such as CBD, as it may severely affect their earnings and impact.
