Can CBD Help Fight and Prevent Covid?


Howdy All,

I hope you're well, and keeping warm. Can CBD Help Fight and Prevent Covid? New Information has been released over the past week, regarding CBD and Covid/Sars 2.  I will go over a brief summary of results from multiple sources, and links to the referencing articles.

The study to find out if CBD can help fight and prevent Covid

Now first things first, lets make it clear which Covid variants were tested for these studies.  Covid Original Wuhan version, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Covid variants.

The new Omicron variant, and the Delta version of the virus, was not tested in the studies.  The main studies come from the Universities of Chicago, and Oregon State.

Now most places you read the information saying the studies were not done on humans, but on human tissues, and mice. This is false, some of the studies were done on Live Humans. This is a critical part of the study that is being overlooked in the news. I repeat some of the study results for CBD effectiveness against Covid, which was done on living humans/people.  Such a study has been conducted by the University of Chicago. You can also read the Vice article "Oral CBD Prevented COVID-19 Infection in Real-World Patients".

Study results for CBD effectiveness against Covid

“Our research suggests that CBD and its metabolite 7-OH-CBD, can block SARS-Cov-2 infection at early and even later stages of infection,” wrote the researchers, led by academics at the University of Chicago. 

"7-OH-CBD" Is a compound produced after the body processes CBD.

Cannabidiol Research against Covid

Regarding the Study on live humans/people, all of the patients were prescribed 100mg of CBD orally per day.  The result was a lower infection rate, when compared to similar medical backgrounds of those who did not consume any CBD. According to the information the Study was on patients who had seizure related conditions. 

"Our results suggest that CBD and its metabolite 7-OH-CBD can block SARS-CoV-2 infection at early and even later stages of infection,” the study states. 

The Medical Xpress by University of Chicago Medical Center "CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, so we thought that maybe it would stop the second phase of COVID infection involving the immune system, the so-called 'cytokine storm.' Surprisingly, it directly inhibited viral replication in lung cells," said Marsha Rosner, Ph.D., Charles B. Huggins Professor in the Ben May Department of Cancer Research and a senior author of the study. 

Can CBD Prevent Covid infection?

According to the study on human lung cells that were treated, using CBD at certain concentration, it prevented the virus from replicating, and further investigation found the same results in two other strains of Covid, in addition to the original strain. CBD was effective at blocking replication early in the infection cycle and six hours after the virus had already infected the cell.

The study on the lab mice was also very positive. The study with the mice were different compared to with the humans/people. The mice were given CBD for 1 week prior to being infected with the Covid virus.  The result was that it reduced infection rates in all air pathways.  "These results provide major support for a clinical trial of CBD in humans," said Dr. Marsha Rosner.

Dr. Rosner did have this to add "Going to your corner bakery and buying some CBD muffins or gummy bears probably won't do anything. The commercially available CBD powder we looked at, which was off the shelf and something you could order online, was sometimes surprisingly of high purity but also of inconsistent quality. It is also hard to get into an oral solution that can be absorbed without the special, FDA-approved formulation,"  Dr. Rosner said.

CBD Lowers infection rate for Covid

"We are very eager to see some clinical trials on this subject get off the ground, especially as we are seeing that the pandemic is still nowhere near the end—determining whether this generally safe, well-tolerated, and non-psychoactive cannabinoid might have anti-viral effects against COVID-19 is of critical importance." said Dr. Rosner.
