Cannabis extracts prevent coronavirus

CBD with THC is a healing plant entheogen.
Cannabis extracts may help to prevent coronavirus, preliminary study suggests.

CBD may become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of Covid-19 as an adjunct therapy (, May 18, 2020).

Canadian researchers at the University of Lethbridge in Calgary are studying more than 400 strains of cannabis and have determined that at least a dozen may offer potential as part of treatments to prevent coronavirus from infecting a host.

According to the researchers the effective strains have, in some instances, managed to reduce virus receptors, which reduces the chance for an individual to catch coronavirus....

Marijuana may prevent COVID-19
Researchers are making new medicinal strains.
New Canadian study says marijuana may prevent the [novel] coronavirus ( Weed preventing COVID-19? That high hope seemed to rise from this headline:

"Cannabis may stop coronavirus from infecting people, study suggests." University scientists are now theorizing that certain marijuana strains [they don't reveal which] could possibly prevent COVID-19 infection.

The study’s head researcher Dr. Igor Kovalchuk said, “A number of them have reduced the number of these (virus) receptors by 73 percent, the chance of it getting in is much lower. If they can reduce the number of receptors, there’s much less chance of getting infected.”

Researchers were able to identify 13 CBD extracts that are able to change ACE2 levels, an enzyme previously linked to COVID-19 infection. The data also suggested that some strains were also able to control serine protease TMPRSS2...

Cannabis stops coronavirus?
April 2020 was another record-breaking month for sales in Canada of 89 million dollars.

A new study from Canada suggests that cannabis extracts containing THC and CBD could prevent the novel coronavirus from infecting human cells.

The study, published online at Preprints, was conducted by a team of biologists licensed to grow marijuana and hemp under a Health Canada research license.

Using 13 different cannabis oils extracted from newly developed strains, the team discovered that certain oils containing the cannabinoids CBD and THC could lower human cell production of two key proteins that serve as gateways for COVID-19 virus to enter the body and cause infection.

Spotify strikes $100 million podcast deal with Joe Rogan

In more news of the strange that's not so strange: It pays to sell out while appearing to speak truth to power. Case in point: Don't subvert the Powers That Be, and they'll reward you handsomely. Wall Street Journal headline: "Spotify strikes podcast deal with Joe Rogan worth more than $100 million," which is more than Seth MacFarlane makes for his genius comedy on TV (TJDS).
