What does research show for CBD’s effects on both viral replication and immune over-response to viral infections like coronavirus?
CARMEL, CA, February 26, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The headlines are getting increasingly worrisome.
The coronavirus appears to combine the contagious reach of the common cold with an added virulence leading viral pneumonia.
The latter being an overreaction by the immune system called a cytokine storm.
We’ll ignore the questions of engineering with proteins similar to the HIV virus.
Plus, the sheer happenstance of originating not far from China’s only Level 4 lab.
There are some interesting studies (NIH mind you) on various anti-viral supplements which may be an important insurance policy but what about CBD?
Research is pointing to CBD’s effects across multiple pathways:
1. Endocannabinoids (where CBD operates) directly affect viral replication and ability to cause disease
2. CBD helps to selectively kill virally infected cells (with an interesting sidenote on cancerous cells)
3. CBD calms the immune hyper-response, specifically in the lungs
4. CBD bolsters immune agents which surprisingly drop with the coronavirus (ie. interferon, etc)
The full review of the research is available here:
New reports from respected virologist (Harvard, etc) are now estimating that 40-80% of the world population will come into contact with the coronavirus.
The question then is…are there ways to thwart its ability to cause death.
Can we relegate to being a very bad cold (which is a coronavirus after all)?
There are also documented supplements such as ginger, elderberry, and oregano oil which have NIH studies to back their anti-viral effects which we’ll cover.
