You may have been already heard about how weed can prevent coronavirus and defeat it and most possibly you look at it with suspicion. Emerging studies continuously are being made to show that weed actually contains some components that are really helpful. Sometimes it seems that scholars of the Canada’s University of Lethbridge have the best job ever because their study is being done around weed, weed consumption, and how it affects the health and immune system of people with coronavirus. And as a result of studies about 800 types of new Sativa and Indica strains, as well as hybrids are created.

Studies done ended up focusing on strains with high amount of CBDl because CBD helps with inflammation. CBD can effectively win coronavirus because it easily affects ACE2 receptors, which are the best means for the virus to enter the body, especially the cellular level. So it comes out that in 70% of the infection cases weed can really have a positive effect. 

In Israel, many studies are held to show that hemp can really be helpful for the treatment of COVID-19. They do say that ganja's anti-inflammatory effect can help while treating coronavirus's syndromes, both the host of the immune system attacks and the virus itself. So the researchers came out to discover about 15 strains that can help to prevent complications. 

 A medical marijuana company in Saskatchewan, Canada came to creating a vaccine using weed strains. They are experimenting with different weed compounds and elements that can in any way help grow a vaccine within the plant's cells. They will do that with science and according to hard measurements. 

Final Sum Up

Marijuana's effect on COVID-19 is higher than expected, yet studies are yet in the first stages and there are more things to study about it. But one thing is certain that marijuana is much more effective in this case than our hydroxychloroquine. According to a study conducted by Harvard University, COVID-19 patients given hydroxychloroquine as treatment have a “45 percent increase risk of death.” Isn't it too high? Especially when the number of people who’ve died from smoking weed is basically zero!
