As the seasons change, and the weather gets colder, we not only face the regular flu season but also what we now call the 'COVID season.' With the ongoing challenge of dealing with COVID-19, people are looking for new ways to stay healthy. And one such option gaining attention is Cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound from the cannabis plant known for its potential health benefits.
In fact, CBD has caught the attention of many as a potential way to help prevent and recover from COVID-19. Let’s take a closer look…
As it turns out, recent research has unveiled some rather surprising findings that suggest CBD might be a valuable ally in the fight against the COVID-19 virus [¹].
Here's the scoop: when the virus encountered human lung cells treated with CBD, it had a tough time replicating and spreading as it normally does. In simpler terms, CBD seemed to throw a wrench in the virus's plans. Even in studies with mice, those given CBD before being exposed to the virus were much less likely to get COVID-19 compared to a group of mice that didn't receive CBD [¹].
What's really cool is that out of all the compounds found in cannabis (and there are more than 100 of them), only CBD showed this protective effect [¹].
But what about recovering from those dreaded symptoms of COVID19?
As it turns out, there have been some intriguing findings about CBD in relation to COVID-19 recovery. Studies have suggested potential benefits, such as its role in possibly reducing lung inflammation and its ability to address symptoms like anxiety and pain, which can be quite relevant during recovery [²,³].
Additionally, CBD, including cannabinol (CBN), has been explored for its potential in managing post-traumatic stress symptoms that may arise after COVID-19. Moreover, CBD has been linked to wakefulness and sleep patterns, which can be affected during and after COVID-19 [²,³]
It's fascinating to see what medical experts and scientists are uncovering about CBD and COVID-19 recovery. The use of CBD in this context is still being studied, and we're not entirely sure about all the details yet.
If you're curious about how CBD might help in COVID-19 recovery, it's a good idea to stay updated on the latest research. Plus, if you're thinking about using CBD for this purpose, talking to healthcare professionals is a wise move. They can provide you with the most current information and advice to help you make informed choices.
Facing the challenges of COVID season, especially when it meets flu season, can be tough. That’s why it's crucial to approach this option with care and consideration.
