Put Ya’ Lighters Up’: New Study Finds Cannabis Could Block COVID-19 From Entering The Body

Scientists from Oregon State University and Oregon Health & Sciences University published a new peer-review study that examined three cannabis compounds that are found in THC and CBD: cannabigerolic acid, which scientists dubbed CBG-A; tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, known as THC-A; and cannabidiolic acid, or CBD-A.

After extracting them from the plant, the biological compounds were then incubated with the spike protein from COVID-19 (SARS-COV-2 virus) and were injected into human epithelial cells after 24 hours. Scientists discovered that the virus’s cells had been miraculously treated by the CBDA and CBGA compounds. The cells had no trace of the COVID-19 RNA, essentially blocking high concentrations of the virus from entering.


A technique called “affinity-selection mass spectrometry” was used to assess how the compounds interacted with the spike protein of COVID-19. The same effect occurred when scientists conducted the experiment on alpha and beta strains of the variants found in the U.K. and South Africa.

 

Researchers said that the evidence could provide a strong case for the compounds to be used to create another preventive measurefor protecting against stronger variants of the virus in the future.

I keep seeing this, easy to laugh it off as plenty of them have gotten it but the only person I know who hasn’t tested positive at some point since this started is an unvaccinated pothead

There are some important caveats with this study.  One major caveat is that it wasn't done in vivo so there is a chance it doesn't work in actual biological systems.  A second major caveat is that the presence of THC negatively impacted the ability of CBDA and CBGA to bind the area of the SARS-COV-2 virus which prevents it from entering the cell, meaning that pure CDBA/CBGA is beneficial, but introducing THC/THCA to the equation inhibited it's effectiveness.  Essentially translated to smoking to get high will not allow these two non-psychoactive cannabinoids to demonstrate their potential therapeutic effect.

I’m an un vaxed pot head….I tested positive, had a runny nose and slight cough for one day, lost taste and smell for around 5 days…. I smoked a few doobies and drank a dozen beers a day throughout the whole thing.
