A recent study by an Albertan researcher revealed that Canada claims that cannabis can help reverse the effects of coronavirus. The research paper is published on Preprints which is an easy-to-use online platform for academic journals and articles. Although the paper is not peer-reviewed, the results are astounding. The research revealed that the cannabis plant can help coronavirus spread and reduce mortality.
The researchers belong to the University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge who discussed over 400 health THC and CBD strains. 13 of them were high in CPD which could effectively reverse the production of ACE2 protein receptors. This receptor is present in the lungs and mouth. Some of the strains were also able to reduce the virus reception by up to 70%.
The cannabis and coronavirus affect similar receptors; hence, if the receptors have cannabis strains, they won’t be available to interact with the virus. However, this method is not yet approved by medical practitioners and scientists.
