How can cannabis help with Covid-19by Tri Healthy
A recently published study by researchers from Oregon State University has a lot of people talking and asking us about cannabis and COVID-19. There has been strong evidence to suggest that cannabinoids make a great natural defense for our bodies. New evidence shows that two cannabinoids, CBDA and CBGA, are uniquely effective in possibly combating COVID-19.
In summary, the study concluded that CBDA and CBGA could bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein in an isolated laboratory setting, suggesting these cannabinoids have great potential to block the pathogen’s infection process. It is worth noting that this research is in a very early stage, and further trials are necessary for conclusive evidence.
Cannabis is a very versatile and complex plant. There are many differences between hemp and marijuana. For some people, getting a medical marijuana card may not be necessary if you’re looking for products that have more focus on CBD and CBG rather than THC. At Tri-Healthy, we offer many product styles that contain many of the known cannabinoids from hemp, including CBDA and CBGA.
Hemp is used for fiber, food, animal feed, medicine, and various hemp extracts and compounds have become popular additions to cosmetics, body lotions, dietary supplements, and food. Over 170 secondary metabolites, including some unique compounds, are produced by hemp, including flavonoids, diterpenes, triterpenes, lignans, and cannabinoids. There are at least 70 cannabinoids orally bioavailable, including cannabidiols, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinols, Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinols, cannabigerols, cannabinols, cannabichromenes, and cannabitriols. It all sounds crazy, and we know. Our job here at Tri-Healthy is to help demystify some of these terms and concepts.
Natural products are the most successful source of drugs and drug leads in the history of pharmacology. Although combinatorial chemistry is the emphasized focus of the pharmaceutical industry, nature continues to be a source of unique chemical structural diversity for new drug discovery.
Vaccines have been developed, but due to their limited availability and virus mutation rate, SARS-CoV-2 infections are likely to continue for many years. People need to take measures to protect themselves on their own. Many studies have shown that simple things like good physical activity and a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of severe symptoms from COVID-19.
