Washington: (www.kvartha.com 15.01.2022) Canadian scientific team finds cannabis can fight corona virus Canadian scientists claim that this was confirmed in an experiment conducted on 13 cannabis plants in April 2021. The New York Post reports that Olga Kovalchuk, a scientist at the University of Lethbridge, said she was shocked by the findings.
The study was conducted in collaboration with Pathway and Swish Inc., who are conducting research on cannabis treatment. According to a study published in the online journal Preprint, the team found that cannabis can stave off proteins that allow corona viruses to enter the body.
Scientists say the presence of cannabis reduces the virus’s penetration by up to 70 percent, and no other drug has been found that can reduce the risk of infection by 70 to 80 percent. They say more research is needed.
However, the World Health Organization says there is no evidence that cannabis can kill the corona virus. The American Lung Association explained that smoking spreads the virus.
Cannabis use can damage the lungs and disrupt the immune system. In addition to damaging the airways, cannabis can also increase the risk of airway infections such as pneumonia, says Michael G. DeGroot of the Center for Medicine.
Cannabis may not be resistant to the corona virus, but a study by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health found that cannabis may contain drugs that help reduce the appetite and weight loss associated with nausea, vomiting, and HIV / AIDS associated with cancer chemotherapy.
