CBD kills Covid!
Here we explain the methods used by the University of Chicago researchers who found that CBD significantly inhibits Covid. From the article:
They first treated human lung cells with a non-toxic dose of CBD for two hours before exposing the cells to SARS-CoV-2… They found that… CBD inhibited the virus’ ability to replicate. Further investigation found that CBD had the same effect in two other types of cells and for three variants of SARS-CoV-2 in addition to the original strain.
CBD did not affect the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to enter the cell. Instead, CBD was effective at blocking replication early in the infection cycle and six hours after the virus had already infected the cell. Like all viruses, SARS-CoV-2 affects the host cell by hijacking its gene expression machinery to produce more copies of itself and its viral proteins… High concentrations of CBD almost completely eradicated the expression of viral RNAs. It was a completely unexpected result. “We just wanted to know if CBD would affect the immune system…. No one in their right mind would have ever thought that it blocked viral replication, but that’s what it did.”
And the success of CBD wasn’t limited to the laboratory: An analysis of 1,212 patients… revealed that patients taking a medically prescribed oral solution of CBD for the treatment of epilepsy tested positive for COVID-19 at significantly lower rates than a sample of matched patients from similar demographic backgrounds who were not taking CBD.
