It turns out that marijuana contains compounds that could prove to be a solid barrier to the coronavirus.
Marijuana to save from the virus
Research report entitled Hemp Acids and SARS-CoV-2 it shows that cannabinoids block the entry into cells of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its new variants. The document was published on the website Journal of Natural Products, and it was developed by scientists at Oregon State University. They managed to isolate two cannabinoid acids (CBD-A and CBG-A) which appear in marijuana. It is they thanks to connecting with the protein spike coronavirus they can become a dam that prevents the virus from entering human cells.
CBDA and CBGA are produced by the hemp plants as precursors to CBD and CBG which are known to many consumers. However, they differ from these acids and are not included in hemp products
– points out Richard van Breeman, who was the research director.
To the pharmacy for marijuana
The team incubated the live virus with the cannabis compounds as well as the control and injected them into human epithelial cells 24 hours later. Scientists concluded that cells that had been treated with CBD-A and stripped CBG-A were SARS-COV-2 RNA. Researchers performed the same procedure on live alpha and beta variants – first detected in the UK and South Africa, respectively – and found the compounds to have the same effect in both. They are optimistic that these compounds may also be effective against other variants.
