CBD News Aggregator – Lockdown restrictions may be easing worldwide, but COVID-19 remains a real threat. A vaccine is still months away, but research shows that help may come from an unexpected source: cannabidiol, also known as “CBD.”
Following a study conducted at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, researchers believe that strong cannabis strains could prove valuable in preventing or treating coronavirus infections.
They have published the results of their study on Preprints, in which they discuss analyzing hundreds of cannabis strains to identify how those with the highest CBD could reduce the coronavirus’s impact on the human body. [Preprint articles have not been peer-reviewed]
