Canadian scientists have conducted a study on at least 13 strains of cannabis Sativa and discovered that the plant can help prevent and even treat the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

“We have developed over 800 new Cannabis sativa lives and extracts and hypothesized that high-CBD C. Sativa extracts may be used to modulate ACE2 expression in COVID-19 target tissues,” the study results said.

The extracts have been tested on oral, airway, and intestinal tissues and 13 of them regulated serine protease which is one of the proteins the virus needs to access a host cell.

This finding doesn’t in any way mean that people who smoke cannabis are prevented or cured of the coronavirus but that the strains can make it difficult for the novel virus to occupy tissue cells.
