CBD May Help With A Lot Of Things But Don’t Buy Into The Stories That Cannabis Will Cure The Coronavirus.
More and more news stories are getting out about how cannabis can effectively treat COVID-19. How much of these reports can we believe? Some of these articles were even published in multidisciplinary journal PrePrints. However, since it is not peer-reviewed, these results will not be taken into consideration by scientists.
The article talked about successful experiments, but none of those experiments was ever done on human or animals, making it less conclusive. While the paper is written by a real scientist showing preliminary findings to warrant deeper analysis, the news headlines are exaggerating the findings into misleading claims.
The COVID-19 virus gets into our body via the angiotensin-converting-enzyme-2 (ACE2) protein, largely present in our lungs. The infection spreads when the virus makes our cells multiply the virus.
It’s also worth noting that the extracts that caused an increase in ACE2 protein were not marked as being significantly different from the control, even though some of the samples (#45 in particular) showed such a stark increase that they almost certainly achieved statistical significance.
There was no observation of different effects across the various cell types, which seems to point at clumsy reporting. The authors of the experiment should also have talked about the lack of any link to the THC or CBD content in the strains. The research could have been performed better since misinformation is highly dangerous as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage around the world.
