Evidence Suggests The Anti-Inflammatory Properties Of CBD Can Minimize The Side Effects Of Covid-19. What Does The Science Say?
If you tend to use marijuana, it might be a good idea to be a bit cautious since COVID-19 is a respiratory disease. After you get your vaccine shot, wait for a few days or at least until the swelling in your arm is gone to begin indulging. For those who use medical marijuana and require cannabis for a condition, edibles might bring some relief but those who tend to smoke it might need to turn to over-the-counter pain killers for a few days.
Most medical experts agree that smoking in general may reduce the vaccine’s effectiveness against the virus. But there hasn’t been enough written on the subject of cannabis to know to what extent weed may hinder vaccine protection against the virus.
While some research tells us that the anti-inflammatory properties of the cannabis may actually provide a layer of protection against the virus, we need more research on the same. There is no data to say that smoking could benefit us and other evidence tells us that it could harm our respiratory system. According to one study, patients who smoke were 14 times more likely to develop respiratory complications due to the coronavirus, such as pneumonia. The issue there is the vitamin E used in cannabis-infused oil products. Heating the substance can produce carcinogenic alkenes.
According to pre-clinical trials in rodents and monkeys, THC from cannabis in general can inhibit the body’s immune response to COVID-19. While cannabis still helps with others issues like anxiety, depression, sleep, and pain, its efficacy around coronavirus is still under research. To stay safe during this pandemic, try limiting your cannabis use and do not share joints or vaping devices.
