Coronavirus continues to spread in the USA and other countries and researchers have now turned to look at CBD oil as a potential treatment of symptoms in patients. Experts from the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and the University of Nebraska have recommended that scientists study the oil.
CBD oil could help with wide range of Covid-19 symptoms
The universities believe that as CBD has anti-inflammatory properties it may be a viable treatment for inflammation of the lungs, one of the symptoms caused by coronavirus.
It could also help with many symptoms including pain, headache, anxiety and as an anti-inflammatory.
While there is no specific evidence that CBD oil could treat coronavirus symptoms in a peer-reviewed article the authors suggested that more research into it is required to find out if the oil could help patients.
The co-founder of Mindful Cannabis Consulting, Emily Earlenbaugh talked about severe cases of COVID-19 and how the immune system of the body overreacts when the patient has contracted coronavirus. She said that it releases a large amount of cytokines.
She went on to say “Cytokines will normally help to create inflammation to fight off infections,” Earlenbaugh said. “But in these extreme cases, you see so much cytokines being released into the system that it creates a cytokine storm. You might see high fever, inflammation, severe fatigue and nausea, and in serious cases, it can lead to death through organ failure.”
Earlenbaugh went on to say “CBD has very few side effects, so it’s something that’s being looked at as a much more mild treatment that still has a lot of anti-inflammatory powers.”
