    Cannabis extracts are showing potential in making people more resistant to the novel coronavirus, says an Alberta researcher leading a study.

    After sifting through 400 cannabis strains, researchers at the University of Lethbridge are concentrating on about a dozen that show promising results in ensuring less fertile ground for the potentially lethal virus to take root, said biological scientist Dr. Igor Kovalchuk.

    “If they can reduce the number of receptors, there’s much less chance of getting infected.”

    Employing cannabis sativa strains over the past three months, the researcher said the effective balance between cannabis components THC and CBD — the latter more typically associated with medical use — is still unclear in blocking the novel coronavirus.

    But it’s generally the anti-inflammatory properties of high-CBD content that have shown most promise, he added.

    “We focus more on the higher CBD because people can take higher doses and not be impaired,” said Kovalchuk.

    The study under Health Canada licence using artificial human 3-D tissue models has been seeking ways to hinder the highly contagious novel coronavirus from finding a host in the lungs, intestines, and oral cavity.

    OMG, does somebody believe in it? CBD oil certainly helps with many diseases, but not with the coronavirus. This is nonsense! For me, it was a discovery that CBD oil can be given to cats for pain and depression. My veterinarian prescribed this oil to my cat when she was depressed about moving to a new home. I also order CBD oil from just one store.
